Some fun wins

I love how generous bloggers are. There is always a few giveaways going on and they are always fabulous! I just happened to recently win one of those giveaways from Tammy at Tattered and Timeless. It's always exciting to win and I never believe when I do! This package arrived for me on Friday. Even though I knew what was in it, I could hardly wait to open it up and take a look inside! Tammy wrapped it in pretty tissue paper and stuck on a sweet note! Insise was this wonderful burlap banner that reads "WINTER". Since I took down all my Christmas decorations, my window looks so empty and boring. The banner definitely helps it out a lot and the color is perfect in my living room!
This journal is so pretty and so much better in person. Tammy put in so many details and the picture just doesn't do it justice. I have decided to use this journal to put all my ideas and inspirations in. It will be perfect for that!
I wanted to thank Tammy for her generosity, so with only one useable thumb, I created this fun little thank you card. I made some paper roses out of sheet music and some black printer ribbon to create a border and a bow. Very resourceful and I think it turned out cute! It's on its way to you Tammy! Thank you again for your generous giveaway!
Some of you may remember that back in December, I entered a cookie contest in my town. Well, I won 3rd place! Not too bad since it was the first time I had even made those cookies! I will definitely be entering again next year. Here is my pretty white 3rd place ribbon!
Thank you to everyone for your comments on my thumb injury. As much as it hurts and sucks not to be able to use my thumb for awhile, it is so nice to know that I have friends out there who truly care about me!
