You know in yesterday's post I said that Sound Man was gonna kill me for committing to finishing that step-stool right now? Well, the reason why is that I have a craft fair May 16th that I am busily trying to get ready for, and really don't need any more distractions. He is so wonderful, though, because he is helping me in so many ways, even making one of the things I'm selling at the fair. It's even Kat's favorite. Traitor. He's also making my display, because I know that if I tried to it would not be pretty. For realz.
He is giving me the day off of school, even taking Kiddo to work after lunch so that I have uninterrupted time gathering the things I need to pull this thing off. I am so thankful to have such a supportive husband.
You didn't know you were gonna get a "My Husband Rocks" in this here post, did you? Well, he does, so I had to share.
So, what is all the commotion about? Why am I frantically working my hands to the bone (or burn as it may be)? I am busy as a bee creating not 20, not 50, but 100...
Tassels! Most of you guessed it when I teased you with the giveaway a few days ago. Yep, my plan is to make a hundred of these puppies (and birds, and roosters, and bunnies...). I'm five away from being half-way there. Whew. And my hands have the glue-gun burns to prove it.
So, in honor of my blogday (get it, birthday, blogday...nevermind) that I totally missed on April 14th, I am holding a giveaway! Now, I'm not expecting traffic like Kimba or Nester or Susie Harris gets, but I do hope this gets some of you lurkers (a.k.a. the ones who've told me, "Oh, I read your blog all the time, I just never comment.") out of the woodwork and let me know you're there. How can I show my appreciation for reading if I don't know you're reading?
Sorry, I got off subject, which is not uncommon for me to do, but I need to get back to the subject at hand. I lurve this tassel. If I can find another brown bird like this, I'm so gonna make this same exact one for me. Seriously.
He's brown with brown, bright blue, and the-fringe-that-I-love-so-much fringe. I love him. Oh, and by the way, I realize that he has the same fringe as the tassel that Nester made for the Everything Etsy giveaway, and it is purely coincidental. This was one of the first tassels I made, several weeks ago. Great minds think alike, huh?
Paisley ribbon, a pretty button...he's so much prettier in person.
Sorry the pictures are not that wonderful...it's very overcast today and my house has sporadic natural light anyway (huh?), so I had to take these with just the room lights.
So, if you'd like to win him (or her...she probably is a she with her pretty ribbons and frills), just leave me a comment. Now, for all you lurkers, you have to leave me a comment to win. Even if you don't have a Blogger account. You can click the "Anonymous" and it will let you leave a comment. Just make sure you tell me who you are, or I won't know who to give it to if I pick you. I will leave this open until Tuesday, May 5th, and I'll draw a name randomly on May 6th. I'll leave a reminder up so that you know to come here to comment.
When you leave a comment, let me know what you like about this blog. Tell me if you'd like to see more of something, or less of something. I promise not to get my feelings hurt. Too much. Hee hee.
Now, let the commenting commence!
