Good Monday morning Dear Blogging Friends!
I've come back from the Dead! Not fully 100% but getting there a little bit everyday. Doc said to expect at least 6 weeks for full recovery....yes, I was THAT sick!
I have a GIVEAWAY for you!! I sure hope you like it as much as I do! I had so much fun putting this together!
I used a new pattern that I bought from Tawny at The Primitive Nook.
Now, mind you, mine is a bit different from hers. You KNOW that's going to happen with me. Don't you do it too? Change up a few things different? Sure you do! We all have a slightly different aesthetic and that's what makes the world go round!
Here's mine!
 You can see I made my 'bag' different. Tawny's was a lot of work so I simplified. Yeh, I know I'm lazy but I do like the blue homespun! One of my favorite color combinations is blue and yellow so this worked out perfectly for me. It's approx.15" tall by 8" wide
 I have 2 more in the works for my Etsy shop and so I thought I'd share this one with you. Want it?!
Then play my Game!
You know my rules!
1. Follow me...everything is alright, I'll be the one to tuck you in at night, and if you want to leave I can guarantee you won't find nobody else like me!! Gotta love Uncle Kracker!!!!
2. Leave me a comment here on this post and tell me whatchadoing for Summer!
If 2 chances are not enough then......
3. Go like me on Face Book
4. Tell me how much you'd sell this for!
(Tell me all in one comment please.Open to US and Canadian friends!)
There you go. Let's run this until the 23rd of June. Sound good?
Hope your Summer is getting off to a great start! Stay cool 'cause it's gonna be a HOT one!!

Hi Vicky, this came out really cute! I would love to be entered. I am a follower...I am trying to come up with some ideas to do with the kids this summer, we have a list going & a points chart based on their behavior! As far as price, I would say anywhere from 14.95-19.95...depends on how much you have into it:)

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Love your sunflowers Vicky!
Please include me in your giveaway. Mostly this summer we are staying around home, taking care of our new chickens...If we can swing it, the Mister and I will take a small trip to Amish Country...gotta get the kids to come over to watch the critters. I think I have already liked your FB page, but I'll hop on over to check for sure. I think a price between $14 and $18 is fair.
Thanks for the fun.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Here I am! And I'm glad to hear you are feeling some better. I am OK, I think! We drove for over 11 hours to get here yesterday, so I'm tired! But I think I am finally better after being sick! That stuff really knocks you for a loop and I know you had it worse than I did! Take care! OK...I am a follower. I'm going to paint my bathroom blue this summer and maybe $24.99 but you'll have to ask for shipping at that price! It's hot here...but the sunshine feels good to me! I went for a sunset walk, too! Hugs!

Sandi @ The Primitive Skate said...

Hello Vicky, Glad to hear you are are feeling better. We've all been under the weather here for the last couple weeks. Starting to feel a little better. Love your newest creation and would like to be entered in your Giveaway. I am a follower of your Blog and Facebook. This summer I will be staying around home tending to my garden and flower beds. And Working...can't forget that, Lol! I'm with the others, my guess is the $14.95-$18.95 range. Then again, I'm not good at pricing items. I added your Giveaway to my sidebar. Take care! Have a wonderful week!

I would love to be entered in your giveaway. I am a follower already.

What would a morning be without checking in on my favorite artist? Love, love, love the sunflowers! Not knowing for sure how big it is makes it hard for me to determine how much you should sell it for; $24.00?
You already know I "like" you, and you're on my blog list!
What's going on here this summer? Lots of home and yard "projects", most of which will be accomplished while Randy is gone fishing...less interference! :) That, and a lot of recovering from the past few months, emotionally and financially.
Glad everyone is on the mend and our Twirly Girl is twirling!


Glad you are getting better. We have had some nasty weather too, we need the rain, but whoever thought that much! Please enter me in your give-away and I have liked you! This summer will be spent working and sewing. Take care, Cyndy

The Farmer's Attic said...

Awesome giveaway!!! I follow and I like you :-)

Summer will be filled with family and friends. Hopefully lots of relaxing too!

One of the hardest things for me to do is pricing - but I would say around $25.00.

Thanks for the chance to win!


Tam said...

Love sunflowers, tey would go so perfect with the ones I won from Brenda at the Rusty Thimble. Pricing is hard it depends on the areae you being in Florida I would say at least 14ish but being in Maine i don't think I would price it at that, plus do you figure in your time, and the show cost if so us crafters would never survive ha, I guess I'll just be working and enjoying the summer weather

Carmen and the Primcats said...

I would charge... um... 20? Shoot. I am not sure. Terrible at price guessing!

scrappinmagic said...

HI again! LOL...this summer we are basically just hanging out at home and probably around the pool or a few local swimming holes in the area. Want to visit Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville...our favorite place to walk! And of course spending lots of time with the grandkids.
