July, Freedom, Giveaway

I borrowed this picture from another site. I like many of you appreciate the sacrifice that our service men have made to keep us free. Freedom isn't free and there are many families that have lost loved ones or had loved ones serve in the armed forces. I would like to say thank you, we support you and are forever grateful.


This is what we have been doing with out holiday weekend, besides grilling and watching fire works. We are putting a new floor down in our dining room which has just had subfloor for the last 8 years. We should get it done tomorrow and I am so excited. Our goal was to do one room at a time when we had funds. Seems like we always use the money somewhere else. So far we have carpeted the living room, put down 2 bathrooms and a laundry room but still have 3 bedrooms, the kitchen and a family room to go. We paid off our mortgage so now we should see more progress.


Come help me celebrate. I have been running this store since last July when my daughter decided that a new baby was the last straw and she couldn't do it ALL any more. Since July is extra special, I have decided to give away a mystery box. I will put in there items that will be well worth you time to get, some will be things from the store and some will be items that I have left from my booth in June. All you have to do is to leave a comment. For a second chance blog about it or put a link to my site. And for a third chance become a follower and the person that ends up being the 300th follower will get a 4th chance. Since it is a mystery there is no picture.

I also will be running a sale in the store. I am going to take 15% off the already low prices on everything in the store. (CLICK HERE) I almost forgot to tell you to put July in the Voucher Box to get your discount. Be sure to check out the new items.

  90. A mystery box, how fun. Today I found a mystery bag in my garage. I was getting out our large cooler for our camping family reunion starting tomorrow and on top of it was a cloth bag full of christmas candy! I bought it at the after christmas sales and obviously put it in a safe place! I wondered where all those M&Ms went! I haven't opened anything yet to see if the chocolate is all melted. Generally candy lasts forever so I'm set for christmas 2011 treats.
