Happy Monday & A Giveaway

Happy Monday loves!  Do you notice anything different around here???? Do you like?  Well as I mentioned in a post at the start of the new year - there would be some changes around here...this being one of them!  This redesign has been in the works since last July...colors chosen, header created, all of it...it just took some time to get the code written.  There are still a couple tweaks (date tab, extra spacing, etc...)that need to be made, and I thought that I would have had time to do them this weekend...but no such luck.  Anyhow, you can only imagine how happy I am to finally see the design live on the blog.

Since LCW has a new look, I think a celebration is in order!  And how I would like to celebrate LCW's new look, is by having a giveaway.  Yep, LCW's first.  What am I giving away you ask?  Well this my dears...
An absolutely amazing book that I am totally over the moon about!  Everything about this book is perfection - the ideas, styling, photography - all of it!!  There is no doubt in my mind that you will love it too. 

It's just my way to say THANK YOU to all my readers, fellow bloggers and friends for your continuous support and encouragement.  My goal for this blog is, and always has been, to share my ideas with you!  I hope I am holding up my end of the baragin.  My promise to you is that I will continue to strive to create something new and different, and share those creations with you.  There will be some new things coming soon - like video DIY's, a new series, and a project that I hope will be out by the end of the year.

  4. My favorite handmade item is a small plastic beads bracelet made by my 3yr old neice. Its obviously to small to fit around my wrist so I make sure every time I see her to loop it a few times around my thumb and wear it as a ring. She always smile and makes sure EVERYONE knows that she made it for me.
