Late Summer Flowers

21 Aug

I have been a bit preoccupied this summer, compliments of the Huntsman (as Sophi calls Hudson).

My front flower garden is occupied by more weeds than actual flowers and yet some hearty flowers are hanging on.

I have agreed to participate in the spring catalog promotion with Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.  According to the mass e-mail I received- “You’ve not only inspired your own readers, but crafters from all over to discover their love of crafting!”  Okie dokie then cool.

I chose one craft from a list of 71 ideas and then I will make it and do a blog post review of the craft.

For doing this I get a $25 gift card for supplies, woohoo!

Here is the kicker, you guys get a 15% off total purchase from Thursday, May 2 through Saturday, May 4 and here is the link.


The craft I decided to try is called the jungle window box.


Sometimes it pays to have a blog =) and glad I get to share the love
