U Follow Me I Follow You Friday Blog Hop

Happy Friday all!  I wanted to do a Friday Follow Me Blog hop.  I did a search and found a wonderful blog called Susieqtpies Scraps of LifeClick the button at the bottom of my post to head over, join the fun, and find more great blogs to follow!

A little about myself and my blog.
I started this blog quite a long time ago.  I used to type daily about my life and what I was doing online.  I got away from it for awhile, and when I came back, I stopped boring people with my daily activities  LOL

Right now I do a Mail Box Monday Blog hop on Mondays......I host a giveaways linky each Tuesday......I do a WIP Wednesday post on Wednesdays.    Mixed in with those are giveaways, which as of yet have been 99% sponsored by myself.  I was able to do one CSN Stores giveaway and have one coming soon from myblogspark and Old El Paso.
I do reviews in my blog as well, both through companies like bzzagent, one2one network, and personal ones.

I am in hopes of getting more sponsored giveaways going!

I also like to post my coupon savings as well as good deals I find around the net such as coupons to print, freebies, and samples to send for.  Look for more posts along these lines coming soon as well.

I'm off to go follow some more great blogs, and I hope you will do the same.  Have fun!

WIP Wednesday

Welcome to WIP Wednesday hosted by Every Day Crochet!

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; she leaves each WIP up until the following week. Click the button at the bottom of my post and copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted.

Have fun!

This past week I got out the sewing machine and my 2 inch squares that were already cut and experimented with making hot pads that I want to give out for Christmas.  I found the black lining that I wanted to use, to not be heat resistant.....oops!  I made another one using left over t-shirt on the back.  It looks pretty good, and I do end up with t-shirt backs after I cut the rounds of shirts making my rugs.  I only completed 2 pot holders.   I am thinking now I want to try the cushions covers from the old futon for the backs....will check their heat resistance first.

I completed the red, white, and blue toothbrush rug made with t-shirts.  I found a sheet in my closet that I had previously cut out a small set of curtains from, so I am back now working on the other rug.

I just have to finish the fringe on one side of the prayer shawl and then it's finally done!

I am currently reading The Capablanca Variation by Douglas Quinn.  It was sent to be by the author to read and review.  Be on the look out as I will also be giving away my copy in a blog giveaway with my review.

Last but not least, I am getting an etsy shop going finally!  I only have a few things in right now, but am working on moving the crafts I have on blujay over.  I also need to work on my store design and such as well.  I hope you will check it out at

I sincerely apologize for being so late posting this out of bed and was immediately on the run.  I look forward to seeing the giveaways posted this week.

Time for the weekly giveaway linky.

Please post your giveaways here weekly.

List the name of the prize, and the end date.  Link directly to the giveaway post, not to your home page.

The linky is available to post on until the following week when the new linky is put up.

Most of all, have fun and good luck!
