Doodlebug Sweet Cake Giveaway

Greetings and welcome to my blog. First I want to thank you for your warm thoughts regarding my last post. I hope to collect my thoughts and put them onto pages in the near future.
Today, I am hosting a little give-away on the Doodlebug's blog. The rule is to follow my blog, leave a comment here, and go to Doodlebug's blog to leave another comment.  Then you will be entered to win the entire Sweet Cake collection.

I got this little red mailbox from Target many moons ago and finally I have found the most perfect Valentine's collection: sweet cake that match the red exactly. This will make a sweet little gift for someone, so I thought.

Of course, one never has any peace while working on important projects. Second Born just couldn't stay in her room long enough to let me finish my work. She kept on coming over and playing with my box of Doodlebug sweet collection. Not that I blame her, the colors are so vibrant and design completely adorable. I tried to pacify her by offering up several pieces of scraps which she gladly accepted, nothing bigger than 2x2 inches of course! However, she continue to linger and pester me to find out who is getting this little mailbox. Finally in exasperation, I told her that she can have it if only she would just leave me to finish it! She squealed with delight and immediately returned the scraps I gave her earlier back to me. "Now that I'm getting the mailbox, you can have these back!" LOL. So much for making a gift for someone else, I guess this one is going to Second Child's room! :)


To make matters worse, today, she triumphantly informed First Born: "Mama made this mailbox for me and you don't have one!" Grrr...

Thank you again for visiting!  I will be back with some Fancy projects soon :)
