This post will be short and sweet…..

The winner of the 6 flag Customized Banner is….. kk!

The second place winner who gets to choose any Nifty Little Bag in my shop is…  Lisa Philp!

Thanks to all of you who entered and all of the amazing feedback. This will help me as I get ready for this big ol’ craft fair. Last year I brought absolutely everything & it was quite a bust. I think I need to narrow down to 3 or 4 types of items. Your input is great.

And, check back frequently for more updates and whatever crafty crap I’d like to talk about. Or, what you’d like to talk about.

Congratulations to our winners! Expect an e-mail in your inbox soon…..


Ok, I’ve been thinking about this giveaway from the Fabric Shopper for almost 2 weeks.

And today I found out that I won! HOORAY! YIPPEE!! WOO-HOO!

(Yes, I am quite excited.)

Now I have to go think about what to make….

In other news, I know I’ve been out of the blogging world awhile. My eldest daughter is turning 2 next weekend. I’m furiously working on a birthday banner and matching tablecloth for her. The tablecloth is a wonky log cabin. Yes. I’m quilting it. Well, patchwork for now. After the party I’ll add the batting & backing & quilt it. Eventually it will be a twin quilt for her.

I’m really excited about this project because I have the sheet that was the first one she slept on as a baby and a piece of fabric I used to swaddle her. (The weather was in the 100s and we didn’t have A/C. I didn’t use blankets on her for months! An extra yard of fabric was her swaddler instead.) I can’t wait until the day that these fabrics that once cradled and held her can do so again.

Pictures to come soon.

Thanks so much to all of you who entered the big May Giveaway Day! I really appreciate all of your info on my shop as well. I have some good ideas of what to make (and what to make more of)! I had such great response to the aprons that I will be adding them to my store. Expect them in a week or two.

Check back here at la*le POP for more giveaways, pictures of what I’m working on, and other random crafty craziness.

Now, on to the winners…. (Which is what you’re all excited about, I know!)

The winner of the black & white damask apron is Whitney Rodgers!

And, the winner of the apples & pears apron is Mama Lusco!

I’ll have an e-mail in your inbox within the next 15 minutes to get an address from you guys.

How about the rest of y’all? Have you won anything in the other giveaways? So far I’ve won some adorable fabric from 2Hippos. This is exciting!

Many of you will think that I was biased by 29 years of friendship when I chose the winner of this giveaway. Not at all! I promise that I went to and entered the numbers 1 – 7. (There were seven comments & I assigned you numbers in the order that you commented.) The winner…?


So, buddy-o-mine, I will be sending you a little package this week with a groovy pot holder inside.

For the rest of you, keep checking in. I am planning on joining the May Giveaway Day from Sew Mama Sew on May 27th. That one will be a biggie! But, I haven’t decided what to give away…. any suggestions?
