5 things

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Since I’m feeling more myself at this particular moment I’ll make my 5 things list.

1. A husband who takes wonderful care of me for three days while I’m stuck on the couch in pain.
2. Mini series on DVD to keep me occupied while I am stuck on the couch in pain. Pride and Prejudice and North and South to name the two I’ve watched.
3. Interesting shows on PBS. I love the new season of Masterpiece and we watched some of the Make Em’ Laugh series yesterday too.
4. Kind girls who share favorite stuffed animals with me while I’m sick.
5. Banana’s and 7-Up. I only wish the bananas had been ripe two days ago when this whole thing started and that I had tried the 7-Up sooner, though I may finally be getting better. (Knock on wood.)

Pay it Forward

Monday, January 19th, 2009

I saw this on a friends blog and entered, or was the first of three commenters, and now must do my duty and post it.

The Rules

1. Be one of the first THREE bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me.

2. Winners, you must post this challenge on your blog, meaning that you will Pay It Forward, creating a handmade gift for the first THREE bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway!

3. The gift that you send to your Three Friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember: It’s the Spirit and the Thought That Count!

4. When you receive your gift, please feel free to blog about it, sharing appropriate Linky Love!

If you are not one of the Top Three Commenters on this post, you can still play along. Please take the button and post it on your blog; start your own Pay It Forward chain, and encourage your blogging friends to do the same!

I will add you have an option of what I might make you:

Apron
Truffles- around 20, though I don’t know how these will ship so if you live out of state, this probably isn’t an option.
nursing cover
cookies of some creative sort, or your favorite kind.
two baby swaddling blankets
I’ll sing you a song- ha, I’m just kidding on this one.

Or if by some chance you can think of something I made on this site that you would like me to make you you can tell me, as long as it doesn’t cost more than $20 to make, I am on a budget. πŸ˜‰ If you want me to surprise you, it may be something comepletely different than what’s on this list.

Also it says I have 365 days to get it to you, so I’m hoping to get it to you in the first 182 days. πŸ˜‰
