Candle Giveaway!

Johnna sporting a crocheted beanie hat I made from the LYNN pattern that I purchased from . This picture was taken as she awoke from a nap so she wasn't very excited. Still... super cute, huh?!

This week I’ll be giving away an 8 ounce candle in your choice of scent!
They are a new product that I will carry upon my return. They come in cute little jar with a gold lid. Sorry, no picture at this time…
It will be the last giveaway for awhile since I will be having more surgery next week. L But the fun will continue just as soon as I’ve recovered!

I’m so thankful for my new handicapped parking pass. It makes getting in and out of places so much easier and much less draining.

Wiped Out Wednesday

New September Specials are up in all my Etsy shops!
Lots of supplies were ordered today. Gearing up for the holiday season!
Changes are happening in the Collins household. Looking towards the future… a little give and take makes the outcome look exciting! I’ll have more to come on that subject as we hash things out.
A very easy dinner is being made tonight… sometimes the days spent in front of the computer screen are the most exhausting but necessary nonetheless.
Hoping (praying) for a relaxing evening… Whew!
