A couple of weeks ago I posted that I had won seeds from Cheapseeds.com simply by being a fan of theirs on facebook – I went to the website and ordered my free seeds ($20 worth) and received them 2 days later and what a package! Quick service and lots of seeds … Thank you very much Jeff, owner of Cheap Seeds!! I am very happy and am actually getting ready to plant this evening.
This is what I received – Love in a mist (2,200 seeds), Bellflower Tussock (40,000 seeds), Candytuft (1,500 seeds), Chinese forget me not (1,000 seeds), Pincushion (300 seeds) and Scarlet flax (1,750 seeds). I am looking forward to a beautiful flower garden this year … Thanks so much!
I am also excited to report that when I visited the Chicago Flower and Garden Show last week, I entered to win a drawing from the Chicago Botanic Garden and I won! “A Day at the Garden” which includes complimentary parking, 4 passes for the Grand Tram Tour and 4 passes for the Model Railroad Garden. How totally cool is that!!!
I went to the show with my Mom and Aunt and made them a little gift using my Cricut machine…a folder to hold their gardening notes.
I started work on a card for Mother’s Day and also a sign for Easter … both still need work, but I am discovering new techniques and material to work with. I actually sewed ribbon onto the card and glued a fabric flower on the Easter sign. Using the sewing technique gives the card a whole new look and it works very well using cardstock.
Can’t get any better than this …. gardening and crafting and Winning, of course! Thank YOU!
