Tool Time Tuesday...Eyemark? Bookmark?

Hello everyone. It's Tool Time Tuesday and you know what that means...something out of the box!

Anything is fair game for Tuesdays even one of my old tutorials.

I found a wonderful new blog when Vickie left a comment on one of my posts. Vickie is from...My Red Truck. I would love it if you could go over for a visit and meet Vickie. She is a sweet heart and her kids are cute as buttons. She has wonderful ideas to share too.

She doesn't know I'm doing this post (but I'll email her though). I just wanted to share her with all of you. So go for a visit and click her follow button. You all remember how it feels when you first start blogging and your follower number goes up!! Who am I kidding...I've been blogging for a year and a half and I still love each new follower. It's like a great big circle of friends.

Thanks and have a great night,

"We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give." ~Norman MacEwan~ space Sharing on Sunday is my way of saying thank you to each and every single person who stops by my blog, even for just a moment. space Today's give away is all about roses...



a 3 pack of file folders...perfect for organizing



a 2 pack of matchbook style note pads...


a 3 pack of matching rosy pens...


a package of sticky tabs...note pads and tabs to mark your place.



and how can I not include a little rosy fabric. This a piece of Moda fabric from Robyn Pandolph's Folk Art Christmas. The piece measures 12" x 22", so it's a thin fat quarter, lol !! The color is a true mauvey pink with burgundy roses. I'm not sure if the picture comes across as true.





I know I usually ask you just to leave a comment, but let's mix it up a little this week. When I'm sewing or blogging I ALWAYS have a cup of tea by my side and sometimes a salty snack. space Let's all leave a comment …

So onto the winner! Instead of using the random number generator, I wanted to tie the winning number into something to do with Robin. Robin's daughter is 15 years old, so that's the winning number...15.

The winner is Terry from Terry's Treasures space Congratulations Terry! I will email you Robin's information. space Thank you everyone for entering this week and I'll be back in a bit for this week's Sharing on Sunday give away. space ~Karen~
