Little Giveaway.


Yesterday was sooooooooooooooooo hot I was not able to do anything. I don't mind it being warm outside, but when it is so warm in my apartment I do not feel so happy, and have problems with breathing, so I had a really quiet day, busy doing nothing except for reading and snoozing.

I wanted to do a Giveaway when I got to 100000 clicks, but I saw that I must have missed it, as I now am well over the mark. The counter is between paper-craft pleasures and creative swaps, not the one on the globe at the top, which I added about half way through my blog-time. This is also post 777, so that's a good number, too.

Yesterday I showed you a large,  altered matchbox. If you want to see the other pics you can do so here

 I have filled the matchbox with lots of pretty things, and will be adding the little Paris mini-book I made last week, too. And a few other bits and bobs and some recent tags. If you would like to take part, just leave a comment, and I will choose a name out of the hat on Thursday morning.

That's all for today, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  26. Greetings from a hot, humid sticky Nova Scotia! I can relate Valerie! Do not like the humidity one bit.

    Sitting here typing with a fan blowing directly on my face! I pray for a big thunderstorm to crack this heat!

    Love your matchbox Valerie! You put a lot of love into it! Love your creativity!
