a few notes

First... you still have a few days to enter the giveaways from Sew Mama Sew and Sense & Sensibility.

Second... I admit it. I'm northern-hemisphere-centric. I asked, in my SMS giveaway post, for a comment about something fun you're planning for this summer, and completely did not consider the fact that fully half of the planet is heading into winter right now. I apologize. Feel free, if you live in the southern hemisphere, to tell me something fun you're planning for this winter. Or something fun you did last summer. Or something.

Third... I love what being part of the SMS giveaway does to my blog stats... I laughed when I saw this - all of my normal visitor count ups-and-downs just flattened right out, and one big spike at the end. Of course, I'd have no problem if all y'all decided to keep on visiting :)

Fourth... I've decided to do a small giveaway each day this week. Just for fun, and because I can. Today's gift is a wee Pride & Prejudice themed scrabble tile.  Winner's choice of a pin back or pendant bail. If you want it, leave me a comment telling me something you wish you had done last week.

  2. Pendant for sure! i am glad I found your blog. I wish I had known about the giveaway spree last week so I could have joined in and had one too. I do have some giveaways but not handmade stuff.

  3. Pendant for sure! Last week, I wish I would have finished all of the diapers I have sitting on my sewing table... I'm due with a boy in 15 days and I still have so much to do!

    Good luck with all your giveaways!

    I wish I had done more cleaning last week so I don't have to clean this week.

  9. I wish I had put together something to give away for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! I found you there and will absolutely be sticking around. :) My baby refuses to let me wear necklaces, so I choose a pin back.

  16. I wish I had said no to some of the "volunteer opportunities" that came my way! No joke. I've gotten myself into planning four parties in the next week and a half! I'd love to win that tile with a pendant back. It would make the perfect ribbon bookmark for my Jane Austin collection!
