First I want to thank everyone who participated in the Blog Giveaway, I really appreciate the support! I also want to apologize for being a day late in drawing a winner. I am not sure what made me think pulling a winner on Halloween would be possible with an excited 3 year old!
You can watch the video of the drawing here.
The winner is thenewmrsm2016 !!! Please email me your shipping address to email@example.com.
Next Blog giveaway will be in December!!
Tomorrow at 6 p.m. my son will be drawing a winner for the October Giveaway. If you want to enter please comment on the post here.
Joey’s 4th Superhero Birthday Party
I am starting to plan Joey’s birthday party. Which means adding items to Pinterest like crazy! If you would like to follow the boards I created you can find the links below.
What’s in the Mail today?
I got a skein of yarn in the mail today. Not sure what to make with it (I bought it so the furniture I bought would be cheaper!). I will probably end up using it to make items for Joey’s 4th birthday party.
I have done 2 virtual campaigns and 1 voxbox. If you are interested in reading my review check it out here. Would love to be picked for a mega box!
I have now earned $20 on Crowdtap, but have not been selected for any of the samples yet. I will keep trying.
My husband was able to get another $10 basket yesterday. Here are the items we got and what I plan to do with it.
- 13 tshirts will use it to make more yarn for the dog rugs I am making for the Electra Animal Shelter.
- Bathroom scale. It does not hurt to have a spare one!
- Bathroom rug. Was lucky it was in a blue because I eit aside for her for Christmas.
- Batman hat. Going to put it in the bag for my niece for Christmas (she is a batman freak).
- 20 items we don’t need or want, I will try to sell locally and on ebay.
- Lots of other items.
Even if it is something I ordered, I love getting packages in the mail! Yesterday I received end tables that I ordered. Today I received my influenster package. I will write more about that on a post of its own. What was the last package you received?
I have finished Walking Dead seasons 1-7 in just enough time to start watching it live again! Started a new series How to get away with murder and it was better than I thought it would be. Now I am currently on American Horror Story. What are you watching?
One of the ways I am trying to give back to the community is making T-shirt Yarn Dog Beds for the local Animal Shelter. I spent the weekend cutting up the t-shirts that were donated to me and turning them into t-shirt yarn. I am in the process of crocheting it now. It is more time consuming than I thought it would be with my shoulder. I had to do a lot of stopping because it was in so much pain. I plan to finish at least 1 before the big fundraiser on Saturday!
This is why I wasn’t posting so much this weekend! I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a great week too!
Blog October Giveaway
I am organizing my craft supplies and fixing to add some cool tags to the Blog giveaway. If you are interested in signing up for the blog giveaway please do. All you have to do is comment on the Blog October Giveaway post found HERE that you are interested.
I received my first bid on EBAY! I am excited, hopefully it means many more bids to come in my future. So far I have tablet cases and some cake toppers posted. If you are interested in checking out my eBay page you can find it here.
Today I earned another $5 gift card total of $15 so far. I have also applied this week for the Unilever Sample (10), French’s Ketchup, and 2 different Zicam samples. Waiting to see if I am selected. That is a total of 5 I have applied for and 0 selected for so far.
I am going to try selling items using ebay. Since you can post 100 items free for 1 month. I will try it out for the next 3 months. If it is successful then I will continue to do it. Garage Sales get boring after awhile so please wish me luck. If you have any ebay tips for me please let me know.
These are my first 2 items (only 98 left to post)
