{winner.winner.chicken dinner.}

So Tina you won the 'buying' one by the skin of your teeth in  a raging battle ... lol. :)
and sister Suzy won the 'love' one !!!

How are you all spending your week before Christmas??

This is what I am doing---

This one measures 36x10 inches. and was painted in black with cream lettering.

For a friend who saw these in my m.i.l.'s living room. and desperately wanted  them as well.
They each measure 15x15 inches. and are also painted black with cream distressed lettering.

They both were orders from people for Christmas gifts... 

Merry Christmas to all .... 
May your week be filled with peace...

{for sale/or auction/give-away}

Good evening to all. and to all a good evening.
It's been BUSY over here It has been a lovely day, doing laundry, folding laundry, painting signs (3 are done 3 more to go yet tonight.) cutting wood, sanding, painting. cooking supper, sitting down at the sewing machine to squeak in a few seams.(I love sewing clothes that only have 3 pieces to them.) Dresses are lovely when they take 3 seconds to cut and about 8 minutes to sew. Crepes for supper. (at the astounding request of my husband. which made me smile!!!) The hungry stomachs of 2 grateful men filled by my cooking. Makes me feel content inside knowing I have that power and/or the opportunity to do it !!!

    I really wasn't planning on doing this auction style...but my other side of my brain persuaded me.
I will set my lowest price for this one a bit higher as it is quite a bit bigger than any other one I have sold on here.

Here it is. In all its 'niceness'. Declaring your love for your newest arrival, or just to proclaim your never ending love for all your kids...
 The size is approx. 15 inches high by 30 inches long. It is cut from quality black vinyl.

I will start this bid at- $15.00
Remember bids can only rise by $1 segments. (none of this 1 penny  or 25 penny stuff !! lol )

and a GIVE-AWAY for anybody who places a bid ;) (boy, am I sneaky)  there will be one randomly drawn winner out of all the people who place a bid on this piece of wall art. and if no body does I will keep it for
myself. :)

toodles my friends....

o. give-away closes on Friday at 9am PST. (10 MST)

Now I NEED your help. I switched to private as those of you who are reading this obviously figured out...
Was it hard to get onto here?
If it was easy for you, do you think it could/would be difficult for some one who is not that computer smart to figure it out?

Tell me pretty please :)
Thanks- Jenn

{a lesson learned}

Sleeping. Deeply.
Finally. Work was long and when I got home all I wanted was my pj's and my bed.
Deeply Sleeping.
Ding Dong. (the door bell)
I awaken, groggy.
O right, the door bell. I roll over and decide 'they' can wait.
But than I decide, No I better get up and at least check and see
who it is. (through my lil peepster hole)
I open the door.
and there. My handsome guy.
With 1 dozen pink roses.
and the awesomest-made-me-cry card.

Lesson learned. Always check the door :)
