Fantastic Friday!

First off, I would like to say I reached 30 followers today! Which means...GIVEAWAY TIME!!! I am so excited!! I went and got some more fun goodies for the giveaway today. Someone is going to be really spoiled! I will be posting all the information tomorrow!! I haven't decided if I will be posting individual pictures of everything or put it all together in one picture. I am so excited and hope everyone participates :)

Not only did I get goodies for my giveaway, I also bought a few crafts for this weekend. I already finished one of them! I made a yarn wreath, it took a lot longer then I thought it would. It took me 2 hours just to wrap the yarn around the wreath. It's not perfect, but it's handmade and that's what I love about it. I still have to get a pretty bow so I can hang it up, but for the most part it is finished. Thanks to Carrie for the great idea!


I love the little birdie

I also bought yarn for finger-knitting! It will be my first time ever to do this and I am very excited! I will be making lots of garland to hang around the house, here are some of the pretty colors I got!

I of course took advantage of some of the Christmas deals and bought a few holiday candles. The pictures don't do them justice. They are so much prettier and sparklier (if that's a word) in person.

Looks so pretty on my marble table

When I got home the first thing I did was check the mail. Low and behold I got my package in from Sparkles and Sticks. I ordered this super cute cozy!

I absolutely love how she had it wrapped so pretty. So creative and unique how she wrapped it. I love how little things, like the way a package is wrapped, make my day :)

So my plans for this weekend include:
♥ Posting about my giveaway
♥ Finger-knitting for the very first time
♥ Catch up on my shows
♥ Work on my Style File
♥ Wrap some presents (hopefully)
♥ Do some serious snuggling
♥ Oh and the unfun laundry

Hope everyone has a Happy Friday and great weekend!! What are your plans for the weekend?

  10. Lol soo Ray has a google account and I left a comment and it said from Billy and I was like what the heck?!?!?!?! So I realized it was on his account and had to delete it. Anywho as I said I LOVE the wreath!!! The bird looks great on it! And that adorable snowflake! I saw those candles at Hobby Lobby, I love them! I wanted to get my centerpiece stuff soooo bad, but it would have been useless this close to Christmas :( poo! So I spent the money on crochet stuff. I am SUPER excited to start crocheting with you! I bought a beginners manual haha. I am excited for your giveaway! Oh and the cozy is so cute!! My goal is to make one when I get the hang of things! However long that may be!
