Odds & Ends

This will be a quick post of just a few random things that have been happening lately....I'm working on a project that I'm excited about, so look for that in a few days!

1:  Thanks to Natalie from A Turtle's Life for Me for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award!  You can click here for all the details, and while you are there, check out Natalie's other great stuff - I especially love her playhouse makeover!!  Now, I still haven't had the time to figure out 7 random things about me, or 15 other bloggers to pass the award on to, but I wanted to make sure to say THANKS to Natalie - you made my day!!

2:  You might know what a huge fan of SwagBucks I am!!  Well, I am excited to say that I was just able to order my 45th $5 Amazon gift card!  Wahoo!  $225 of free Amazon credit?  Yes, please!  If you haven't signed up yet, I definitely encourage you to do so.  No, I do not spend hours a day searching random things so I get points.  I use it just as I would any search engine.  There is also a way to get 3 easy points each day - you get one point for doing each of these things:  the daily poll, viewing the trusted surveys, and scrolling through the no obligation special offers.  This takes about 2 minutes each day!  Just to be completely honest, this is one of those websites that you do get points for referrals.  So if you sign up by clicking on one of my links, I would appreciate it.  But even if you don't use my link, you should really check it out!

Search & Win

3:  Time to show a quick project!  I bought this vinyl on Groop Dealz from Wonderfully Wordy, and my friend picked up the tin sign for me at Hobby Lobby.  (Thanks, Terri!)  I think it turned out super cute!  (Even cuter in better lighting...I took this last night, hence the no natural night).
Groop Dealz is another great site I recommend checking out!  It has great daily deals (I purchased the vinyl for the above project for $6), often crafting supplies or cute stuff people have made.  Today's deal is a half-cami - great idea!  Again, if you use my link, I do get referral points, but if you don't want to, I still recommend you checking it out!  (I think my link will only take you to today's deal, so if you are looking on a later date, you will need to just go to the main website).
I should give my husband some major credit for this project....technically he is the one who got crafty with this one :)  He is so much better at measuring and centering things that he is the one in charge of vinyl, hanging pictures, etc.  I tend to be the one who just eyes things up and slaps it on, sometimes regretting it later.  My helpful hubby is the one who actually gets out a measuring tape and makes things look perfect - and doesn't ever complain!

4:  I was happy to see I have finally reached (and recently surpassed) the number of followers from when I changed my blog address.  I know numbers in the 20s are very slight compared to some of the awesome blogs I read that have thousands, but I appreciate every one who has followed, and honestly get excited each time that number goes up!  Thanks all!
