New Year with a give- away

Happy New Year 
Bring on 2011

I got the above clock from a blogger online - Can't Stop Making Things.  She had a great idea to just print it out and center it on a Christmas wreath to carry it over a bit longer.  Well this is a big wreath that did not sell in the booth space so I knew it was meant to come home and ring in 2011.

As promised I am going to ring in the New Year with a give away.  Somehow over Christmas I passed 400 followers and 300 posts- I must talk a lot and a lot of you must like to listen.  Thank you so much for being such great friends.
So, to thank you I am giving away two items I made myself.  They relate to winter and the new year.

First up is a burlap banner telling us what season we are in- not that many of us need to be told after the snow we got but it is cute none the less.

 Secondly, is a journal. I always wanted to work more with paper and fabric together so yesterday I created this journal.  It can hold all your plans, hopes, dreams or whatever you want this upcoming year. It was created using paper, twill tape, lace, sheet music, glitter, glue crepe paper and of course a graphic from our queen of graphics - the graphic fairy.

It is simple- just leave a comment to enter and I'll draw a number on January 7th and if it is yours - you win.  I'll leave you with one more "happy new year wish and glimpse of my wreath" enjoy.
