GIVE-AWAY Announcement!

I’ve wanted to do a give-away for a while now; probably for about a year the more I think about it!  Last spring I put a reminder on my calendar to do something on my “Blog-a-versary” in August, but it came and went without the time for me to be really serious and do something special.  Now, I could wait until this August and do something BIG for my 5-year Blogging Anniversary, but I don’t wanna  ;-)

So, ATTENTION family, friends & crafty bloggers:
