It's about time!!! (and a GIVEAWAY!!)

time to start a new blog!
VERY overdue!
i decided it would be easier to get a new blog, than try to redo the last one.
and it has it's own memories of sorts.

so here we are!!
i am digitally impaired, but somehow i managed to make a banner/header, and buy and add text to lil banners for the sidebars. it is kinda embarrassing to admit just how long it took me to do those, and text, etc. etc... i used free editing tools (fotoflexer). it works for now. too cheap to hire someone.

i think instead of doing some INSANELY long blog post about what i have been up to, i think i will recap as i go! i HAVE to at least go back a couple weeks to my attending Whatever Craft Weekend!! FUN!

ok-the giveaway!
