Was 2012 A Lucky One?

2013!!!  Another year older, another year wiser.  I know I'm older, I don't know about wiser.  I'd like to think so. 

Are you lucky?  By that I mean do you win things often?  Do you win at all?  I'm usually closer to the unlucky side of the scale.  One of my sons however is very lucky.  He used to win stuff all the time.  It started when he was, oh I don't know, about 7 or 8.  He won a bicycle from Wendy's.  That's the biggest prize he has won, the rest have been small nicknack things.

Well, last year was a good year for me to be lucky.  In the middle of my blog surfing, I was finding so many things to enter to win.  Don't get me wrong.  I lost most of the time, but I won way more than I ever expected to win.  I thought I would show you some of my prizes.  I wish I had taken pictures as I received each item, but I didn't realize that I might do a post about it. Duh, stoopy me.

$10.00 to spend at Paper and Present Etsy Shop from Melissa at Handwork Chronicles.  I posted about it here.  I chose the pink twine and large manila gift tags.


240 yards PEPPERMINT Divine Twine bakers twine, red white and pink   25 large MANILA gift tags, 2 3/8 x 4 3/4 inches, shipping tag

A handmade broach from Melanie of Bear Rabbit Bear and a $10.00 Michael's gift card from Heather of Cupcake Love Affair. I purchased a circle punch and jewelry making supplies with the card.


Very pretty!

A $10.00 gift certificate from Honey of Honeys Quilling, to be used at her etsy shop, Honey's Hive.  I chose a pair of  Purple Rose Cabochon Earrings.  They were on sale at half price...lucky me!  And just in time to give them to my daughter for her birthday.  She loved them.

A $50.00 credit to be used at Wholeport.  You can read about it on their blog here.  I chose 5 yards total of Chiffon and Satin fabrics in purple, blue and burgandy colors, a paper craft tool set, and a 3 pack mini plier set.

A 2 pack of Washi Tape from Make and Craft. This was for a launch party forum daily giveaway. I could not find the chat string so I guess it has been taken off by now. They were getting ready to launch their new magazine.
