Earth Day & a Giveaway

Happy Earth Day!! Did you do something green? Us? We dropped off our glass for recycling and made a stop at the hazardous waste drop off with some miscellaneous household goodies. And by we I mean my husband. Oh, and we recycled yogurt cups and planted seeds in them. My third-grader is doing a plant experiment. I'd love to hear how you celebrated Earth Day.

I can hardly believe it's been a whole year since I started this little blog. I knew the anniversary was coming and have been waiting to throw a little celebration. I'd forgotten until today that one of my very first commenters and blog pals also had a little celebration. Kristin told me a year ago that I'd started my blog on her birthday. I hope you had a great day, Kristin!!

To celebrate, I have pulled together a little collection of goodies I'd like to give away to one of my lucky and crafty blog readers. Thanks to all of you who stop by here regularly or irregularly. Thanks for listening to the banter about my kids, my life, my faith and my crafty endeavors for the last year. Just leave a comment here before midnight on Saturday, April 25th. One comment per person, please. I'll draw a winner on Sunday, April 26th.

Here' a picture of the goodies.

"What's in there," you ask? Six hand-made embossed love notes with envelopes. One super-cute hand-made card. One 7-gypsies bracelet kit. A SU! card stock sampler ring. 20 round and 20 square coasters and 10 slide mounts (fun for altering!) One 6x6 package of designer paper.

I have a few other things to share with you, but not tonight. I can't wait to tell you about our little family adventure last weekend. We took a road trip and I have pictures to show you. I also need to show you all of the super fun projects we made at my club this month. AND I got a new camera and I can't wait to tell you about that too. But right now it's time for bed. I'll be back soon, I promise! Don't forget to leave a comment on this post if you'd like to win the loot shown above.

I would love to win! Especially your hand made card - your cards are always so pretty.

I'm jealous already of the new camera, and I don't even know what it is!

By the way - I love your blog! I LOVE that it is not "just" crafts. It's great to get the peeks into your life.

Forgot to tell you what we did for Earth Day!! We planted 4 Alvacado trees in our back yard, as well as a handful of other plants and flowers. Then about 45 minutes before the kids went to bed, we unplugged and turned off everything in the house (except the fridge) and sat talking about Earth Day in the dark. We planned a minute for every person in the house (5) but it turned into more like a half hour!! My DH was more than happy to do this because he is the one who pays the electric bill {wink!} Happy Earth Day to everyone out there!!
