~ Crafty Kits giveaway ~

* Today marks 46 years since my country Singapore won it's independence and established itself as a tough little nation. I am so, so grateful for the wise leaders we have and the blessings of God. Happy National Day to my fellow Singaporeans! *

---------------------------------------

Let me thank you all for helping me with my stash... I was sleepy when I last posted, and didn't get down half of what I wanted to say, but still I was so thrilled that there were those of you who picked up a kit for yourself. Eight kits sold quickly, and I have one left (more on that below). Maybe some time soon I will get to sort my stamps, and give away some of them too.

Well, I think the furniture in my room is breathing ginormous sighs of relief after piles and piles of scraps and crafty things were unloaded from it. I have to tell you that I share a bedroom with my four older sisters, and while they very graciously allow me to make HUGE MESSES at my table and throw scraps all over the floor, I don't want to tax their kindness...... so occasionally I have to do a big clean-up. That's what I did last weekend, but now the state of things have already begun to regress into a pile of rubble........ HELP!

Okay, I don't have an actual project to share today (just lots of chatter, if you can tell).. but I have one more crafty kit...............

..........that I think I want to share with somebody who is very nice. Might be you! :)

It has a Melissa Frances glitter pack (YUM!) .......... and a fourteen-piece Melissa Frances tag set (seven small and seven large of each). Some pretty flowers, tea-stained trim, burlap trim, doilies, an embossed frame, a satin bird, and maybe some extra things tucked in. Oh, and twenty 6x6 pieces of patterned papers in warm browns, olives and aquas. PRETTY!

If it interests you just a teensy-weensy bit to have some stash to make fun things, tell me so in the comments. I would love to send this to anyone who wants it. Will pick a random winner tomorrow when (and if) I post again.... we'll see.

Before I go, I just want to share two new bloggers with you all: Patty O'Malley and Rosa Philippe are two wonderful ladies who recently began their own blogging journey. If you have a moment, stop by and check out their blogs! I am so excited for them.


Have a super day!

    Let me say first that I am in awe of your talent, specially since you are so young! I love everything that you do and would be very appreciative if I won this kit just for the fact that I can do something hopefully as beautiful as your work and to top it with one of my favorite designers Melissa Frances, I am in heaven!

  16. Hello Viola! It just amazes me that I can receive your blog here in Minnesota, USA!!! Your BEAUTIFUL creations are so inspiring and enjoyable! THANK YOU for your generous sharing of your art and life in general!
    So happy for you that you are pleased to live in your country! That truly is a blessing for which one must be so grateful. How thankful I am for my homeland!
    Melissa Frances is not available here in our fair sized city! It is exciting to know that you are offering this gift to someone! If I could be the recipient I would be sooooooo delighted. If not my blessings go out to whomever is so fortunate.
    With much joy.......~Sandie

  18. I love everything you post. Your style is so soft and pretty. You have a very keen eye for color and texture. I alway wanted to try to work with your stash. It is pretty where my stash is bright and earth tones. I live with males and scrap for my son. The burlap that you use with the soft pretty colors alway grabs my attention. Thank you for a lovely giveaway. mapperlmutter@hotmail.com
