It's Official

I'm sick of winter.

I know, I know... Just the other day it "wasn't a big deal." Well now it is.

This morning there was a rare display of sunshine. Still, I'm tired of looking out my kitchen window and seeing this...

I want to see patio furniture and a fire in the fire pit. I want to be able to use my grill without a hat and gloves. And have I mentioned flowers? Yes, I want those too.

What I'm going to see is a chance of snow four out of the next six days.

Are you kidding me? Throw me a freakin' bone here. I'd settle for mid forties.

I'll say it before, and I'll say it again... Crafting makes me feel better.

With that... Here's my March Madness Giveaway!

A market tote in this fabric...

It's not made yet, but will be soon! I love green and pinky-orange flowers. It just screams, "No paper or plastic for me! Look and me, look at me, lookatme - I've gone green!"

Also, as a super sweet surprise (and the fact that I didn't receive an address from this giveaway winner...) It's back up for grabs - a Hot Pack in this fabric:


Here are the conditions:
1. Leave a comment on this post
2. Be willing to send me your address. I won't stalk you, promise.
3. The winner will be announced Friday, March 28th. I will either email or leave a comment for the winner.
4. You have until 9 am Monday, March 31st to send me your address, otherwise, I'll draw another winner.

Pretty threatening, eh?

Until then, I'm planning to finish two "Must Finish" projects today. The rest of the week will be dedicated to showing off before and afters of Works in Progress. Maybe I'll even go crazy and reorganize my craft room. Maybe.

I'm sorry to say we're seeing signs of spring here. The daffodils are in bloom!

OK, I'll stop ...

I love the green/pink flower fabric. Pick me! It's almost my birthday!

Me me me me!

The market tote is currently used as a pseudo gym bag as I plan on posting this comment, changing clothes, then running 2 miles to clear my brain. It's a first for me at work. It was great - I had it in my closet and on a whim decided to throw my clothes in there before I left for work.

Oh you poor dear, it's cold here, but at least I'm not looking at snow out my window.

I'm so over winter!

Karen said...

It would be nice to have a craft in my house crafted by another crafter other than myself!!

The fabric is very pretty. You're very pretty. I'm sure your garden will be very pretty too once the snow's gone.. Have I sucked up enough to win!!?? LOL :0)

Heather said...

Great fabric! I am so in awe of your ability to whip things up so quickly and then fine tune them.

Karin said...

We got snow this morning--- it's melting though.

Nat said...

Ooohh I can leave a comment. I can wonder what a hotpack is... I will even give you my address...

I am sick of winter. I am sick of the coats and the boots and all that... I would like warm weather and sunshine.

Jen said...

no fair - I want some snow!!!!

I am so glad that we don't have snow here. It is in the low 50s which is a good thing since we have soccer practice outdoors tonight. Ugh! I love the fabric for the market tote. I wish I was 1/2 has talented as you when it come to crafts.

Comment! Comment!! I don't actually need a hot pack... Winning would be cool, it'd make a nice gift for someone, maybe my sister.

If one of those "must finish projects" is mine, don't stress over it. I'm not.

**eyes market tote** Let's just assume someone someone might want one or two. How about a more manly color, like black or a brown? Those are sort of colorful...

People can't go running around town with blue hair wearing silly frog hats with bags those colors. They'd clash!

BlueBella said...

LOL Bryan! Tee hee!

Is one of those "must finish projects" my hot cowboy purse? Oh wha? You want me to pay you first? Um yeah, I mailed the check yesterday. . .

Bryan said...

BlueBella: I'm a bit unusual. I have strange hair sometimes. I wear things like psychedelic frog hats now and then. So does my immediate family!

Gosh. I certainly don't need a shopping tote with studly homosexual cowboys on it!

It's funny, I came on here this morning specifically to look at your market totes! Seriously, I did. It would be so cool if I actually won it :)

I could never live where you are, that's for sure. I hate winter, so what we get down here is enough for me!

I am right with you on hating winter, I am so over it! I read your blog daily and always get a giggle out of it. We had 8 inches of snow on Friday and they are saying we might have another 3-6 tomorrow. NO!! I would love to win your hot pack, I just found out I have a big kidney stone but they can't do the surgery until the 7th and heat helps : )

Jenny said...

Pick me!!! We've had over 100 inches of snow this winter (60 in or so over the norm) so I should be picked out of pity! :)
