Guest posting and a giveaway

First of all, today I'd love it if you would come read my guest post at Giveaway Blogdom. If you like giveaways, you will LOVE this site.

But speaking of giveaways- before you go, I'd like to announce that I am having one!!!
I have a bunch of that beautiful, zebra-print fabric left over from my clock and couch pillows, so I'm giving it away to 1 lucky follower.

It's over two and a half yards (93 inches) of cream & brown colored, zebra-printed gorgeousness.

All you have to do to be eligible to win is to: 
1. Become an official follower of my blog (if you aren't already-if you are you're halfway done!) by clicking the follow button on my right sidebar under the "Followers" label
2. Leave a comment on this post. The reason for the comment is so that I know you actually want it- I have people like my brothers-in-law who follow me out of pity, and I'm sure they have absolutely no interest in winning zebra fabric. 

I will announce the winner on Tuesday, May 3. So you've got one week! If you're not already a follower, become one, leave a comment and be back here in a week to see who won!

In the meantime, please come join me at Giveaway Blogdom to read my guest post about ways to decorate using kid's art. If you've got kids, I know you've got tons of it floating around, so here are a few of the ways that I've come up with for displaying it. 


  1. Oooh I could definitely put that fabric to good use!! I've got about five different fantastic ideas! ;0) I'm off to read your post and get ideas for my future of kid-art decorating!

  2. OOoooo pretty!!! I'm a follower... and not out of pity either :)

    I think this material will inspire me to sew :)
