Alaska Strikes Again

Pin It
Awhile back, I did a post about a giveaway at SewDutch

If you want to read about it...

Anyway, to my surprise and DELIGHT ! !

I WON!  Now how is that!!

I received my package today and just like a naughty little kid I didn't even wait to sit down, but tore into it immediately. It was chock full of goodies.

I quickly snapped these pictures while my camera was flashing its warning that the battery was about to go dead. As you can tell, I am not even close to being a professional photographer and you may want to skip this part because it will make you nauseous.

  • Fabric - not one, not two, not three pieces, but a total of four!
OK, when it is all over, I am going to right up there with all the contestants for having the most fabric, yet I cannot turn it down. It is like a disease, I just have to have more...

  • Buttons - I love buttons, they are like little jewels to me
  • A homemade head band. I just might sport this, soon, so watch out!
  • Chocolate - now who doesn't like chocolate?  You should be ashamed of yourself, it is one of the major food groups
  • Bias tape - in the same fabric as what I received, what a great trim
  • Cotton yarn - I have been wanting to do some dishcloths in crochet, too!
  • Body wash - in an orange blossom scent
  • Homemade soap - this one is made by Northern Lights and I can't wait to try it... be right back, got to go take a shower and try it out...
  • An Alaska souvenir - A note pad with a puffin on it with a magnet, how fun
  • A black double picture frame
  • A mug with a very colorful picture of Native Americans (Eskimos) picking strawberries on it!
  • And, a homemade dryer ball. I'm not quite sure how to use this, but I am game. I may have to do some research, looks like fun.
As anyone can see, I am just a big kid when it comes to getting things in the mail. It is almost like a birthday or something.

I can't wait to see what these sisters are up to next. From sewing, crafting, painting, or thrifty tips, they are awesome. Be sure to visit their blog and find out yourself.

    So glad you like it! Thanks for the shout out! As for the mug...Its a picture made by a pretty famous alaskan artist barbara lavallee, worth looking up! Also, so you don't have to do any research, the dryer ball is for the cuts down on drying time and fluffs up the towels,clothes, etc. Its kinda a replacement for tennis balls if you've ever used those in your dryer. The great thing about the ones we made is that they are made completely out of wool. So they are all natural. Oh and you can NEVER have too much fabric :)
