but no worries, because I'm talking wicked GOOD, as in the giveaway I won from Aileen's Wicked Tats! For her birthday, Aileen hosted a party favor giveaway and much to my surprise, MY name was drawn for a prize! I don't know WHAT I am doing, but lately I have been quite lucky and it all began with Aileen. Previously, IN MY WHOLE, ENTIRE LIFE, I had only won ONE thing... a frozen turkey in fourth grade... imagine my delight...
Well I'm not in grade school anymore and just LOOK at the cool party favors Aileen sent! I have done QUITE a bit of cross stitch in my time and enjoy it VERY much. Cross Stitcher magazine has some really pretty charts, so I may be finding myself with a piece of lugana and two strands of floss in my hand again... IF I can find the magazine! I taught Groovy Girl (my third grader) to cross stitch last summer and she has already kiped it once - caught her reading it in bed. She has her eye on this chart in the "how to" section:
Aileen also sent a COOL, cross stitch, key chain which has charts for the Chinese Zodiac. I will get to stitch this one for sure... but probably not in my sign. Most likely, I will stitch up a pig for my oldest daughter. She flipped for it when she saw it, which just goes to show how cool it is, because she isn't normally a flipper! Plus, the pig is SO DARN CUTE!
Thank you Aileen! We are ALL enjoying your party favor prizes!!!
