Contest starts today. It is valued at $50. I know it is a month late but I have been very distracted. I'm calling it my "I'm moving across the country and the less I take the easier it is to move contest!!" What do you get? one 8x10 photograph, 1 coffee sleeve, 1 crocheted apple cozy and one reusable sandwich bag.

This Poem was on the side bar of my mom's blog, so I stole it. I'm not sure where she found as it is from an anonymous author.
It seemed fitting today, my three year old woke up telling me how cold he was. He is a nudist by nature. He is hates that at this time of year he is required to wear clothes/pajamas. As soon as he has a single layer of clothes on he complains he is too hot and needs to be cold. Boy does he have a treat awaiting him. This is what he gets to look forward to.
It’s winter here in Canada
and the gentle breezes blow
70 miles an hour
at 35 below
Oh, how I love Canada
when the snow’s up to your butt
you take a breath of winter
and your nose gets frozen shut
Yes the winter here is wonderful
so I guess I’ll hang around
I could never leave Canada
I’m frozen to the ground!
So how do you combat the cold? Well here are a few items I found.
And well because us Crazy Canucks like small dogs too.
Boy this is coming quick. I would to see all of you there. It should be a great day a shopping. Just think you can come and get all that Christmas shopping done early no need to worry. All the while helping the local economy one artist at a time. The best stimulus packag, I think.
As for me I need all the help I can get, this house is about to get a little more crowded. Baby number 2 is due on September 23. I sure like to cut it close, don't I. So, I need to get some of this product out of here to make way for the new wee one. Other wise baby will be swimming in a sea of photography, art and items from Little Piece Of Her.
I have been waiting for it to arrive. I was praying she would like it.
Guess what. SHE DOES!!!
My mom asked why on earth I would think she wouldn't. My reason well it's just a bag.
She said it was a complete surprise and she had no idea I could crochet that well.
Anyway thrilled she likes it.
And if you would like one let me know it will take about 2-4 weeks to complete and cost you about $45.00 But it will be well worth it, if you trust my mom. I make them out of cotton so that you can wash and abuse it. Just let me know the colour.
