Many Thanks and a Sweet Gift

First I want to say Thank you to Cindy at I Owe It All To Him for featuring me on her blog hereIt has been fun "meeting" new people in the world of blogging and I have been inspired by many of them.  I am thankful that my blog may have inspired someone else.   Cindy has another blog called Whimsical Musings that has also an inspiration to me for some time

In December Henry Glass Designers held a Holiday Project Parade.  They each had giveaways and patterns for those who participated  and they shared some things about themselves.

I was able to make a booklet with all of the patterns offered by the designers and also enter their giveaways.

I won a giveaway from LizzieBCre8tive! 
Visit Liz and Beth Hawkins to see what they are up to. 
I won a kit with the materials to make the reversible apron pictured above.  It looks like a fun project and the fabrics are fantastic.

I was also the winner of a box of goodies from Rhonda of Blue Creek Home You will enjoy a leisurely visit to Rhonda's blog.

Next, I want to share with you one of my Christmas gifts.  The coasters pictured below were made by my daughter Amy.  She is a preschool teacher and this is the project the children did for their parent's Christmas gift.  This set of coasters was made for us with pictures of our grandchildren on them.  They are made with tiles,  the pictures are modge podged on the tile with felt glued on the bottom of each tile.  These will be treasured.

Many Thanks for each of these blessing.
I am off to walk the dog so that I can get to some creative fun.  I don't want you to think that walking the dog isn't fun too,  I know that it makes Emmy happy to get out and get some fresh air and exercise.  The walking hasn't done me any harm yet either.


  1. Love the coasters what a wonderful gift .

  2. Those coasters are so special I want to remember that idea so the grandkids can make something special for their mommy.

    Thank you for posting those blogs, love finding new blogs.


  3. Oh, my what lovely gifts but I have to say, those tile coasters with the photos are amazing. I've never seen that before, but what a fun way to look at photos every day ;-) Nice gift!
