Sneak Peek & Valentine's Givaway!

Of my new Valentine's offering on PFATT for January. This is my first new piece for 2008....a one of a kind! You'll be able to see the the rest of it tonight when PFATT is updated at Midnight Pacific Standard time.

NEWS!!! I have decided to hold a Valentine's Day giveaway to kick off the new year! It will be a goody package all done in a Valentine's day theme, and I won't spoil the surprise, but I will tell you that among the goodies will be a one of a kind piece especially designed just for this! You can enter for the giveaway by leaving me a comment on this post, or by signing up to be notified for my future blog updates in the upper left corner. Please be sure that you have your email or a link back to your blog or website listed, so that I will be able to contact you if you are the winner. I will accept names until January 31st, and will be drawing the winner's name on February 1st so that they'll receive it in plenty of time to enjoy it for the Holiday. My good friend Lana of Honeysuckle Lane's Simple Joy's is hosting her own giveaway this month, and she inspired me to do the same. Please be sure to pop over to her blog too and enter your name for her upcoming giveaway of wonderful creations. Update...for those of you that post about my giveaway on your blog, I will be holding a separate drawing for a thank you gift! Please email me to let me know that you posted about it on yours and I will throw your name in the hat.

Here are some fun little mushroom's that sprouted up in my yard today....I just love mushrooms! There is something magical about them I think.....and they remind me of gnomes, trolls and fairy's.....and hidden places deep in the forest.

We don't get mushrooms at my home for some reason. Used to get a lot at my old place, must be something in the soil.
