Thank You's, Fun Finds, and a GIVEAWAY!!!!

Hi Crafty Friends! Hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was pretty good. Went to a crop on Saturday, a bowling Birthday party for my daughter's little friend yesterday and then shopping. Whoo hoo!

So today, I want to say "thank you" to 3 Girl Jam for the beautiful hand dyed crinkle ribbon I recieved in the mail Saturday! I won it during the blog hop last weekend on their facebook page. Look at this ribbon..

Isn't it pretty?? Please go check out 3 Girl Jam's blog to get your own. :)

Next, I want to say "Thanks so much" to Carri at DoubleClick- AKA Abusybee for the Domino Cuttlebug folder, embossed paper, and card! I won some blog candy at her blog recently during an embossing blog hop she was involved it. Here's a picture of what she sent..

Look at the adorable little card and the embossed paper!! Please check out Carri's blog for beautiful cards daily!!

Now, I want to show you the cool cheap stuff I found yesterday while thrift store shopping! I found this for $2!!!!

Here is what I did with it..

It's my new scrap organizer thingy! lol This is only some of my's out of control! I can never find what I am looking for so I cut a new piece. I sure hope this helps!

Next, I found this ribbon for just $2!

Then this huge spool of cream colored embroidery floss stuff for just $1..

I also found this 11 1/4 inch doily for 35 cents..

So, for the organizer, ribbon, floss, and doily it was $5.35! AWESOME! 

I also want to say "thank you" to my followers! I want to give one person some ribbons, laces,  twines, and flosses. So, if you are a follower and would like to win some crafty goodies, leave me a comment on this post. I will pick one random winner on Wednesday, April 25th.  I will get it together and post a picture later today. Tell your friends! :)

Have a great day to everyone! I love you all! Thanks for coming by to see me!
