A Great weekend and a Giveaway!

Wow, The conference went by so fast! There were some really great speakers and groups there. Carol Kent, Thelma Wells, Lisa Welchel, Karen Kingsbury, New Song, Richie McDonald (use to be lead singer with Lonestar), Michael O'Brien and Angela Thomas! It was a great time just to bask in the presence of God.

I have had my crafty brain in over time this week and wanted to share a pic with you of one of the things I made this week. That's it to the top right, its a crochet napkin ring and I made a felt flower to go on top. I also made several pair of earrings and plan to make some necklaces this week and finish up the napkin rings and hope fully do a few more designs for napkin rings, getting ready for the craft fair. The pic is not that great but anyways it gives you an idea. I cant believe I used pink but I thought they turned out pretty good.

Now on to the good part the giveaway for the week the pic in the center is this weeks book. The name of it is "A Ceiling Of Sky" by Pat Ross. Its a great book for those who love gardens or those who want to create a garden room. It has over 200 color photos and is the perfect guide to enjoying life in a special garden. I'm going to do things a little different this week you can leave me a comment under any post that I leave this week(only this week not last week or before) and you will get your name put in the hat, but your name will only be entered once to keep it fair. Also I must have a way to get in touch with you either email or your blog or you will not be entered. Sorry just trying to keep things simple and easy.

Okay there are a few more giveaways I want to mention and they are...

Hi Karin,
I am working on an up date for Caty, she has started chemo and started loosing her beautiful red hair about a week ago. I saw her at church yesterday and gave her some of her cheers, she loves to read them. One came all the way from Germany! Thank you for asking about her. I will try to up date her page this week. -Cheers, Amy
