the fifty-cent tour
if you've arrived here via the ultimate blog party, benvenuto. in the interest of preventing Death By Boredom, i shall give you the abbreviated blog tour.
i'm nicole, aka nic, nicki, mom, or most popular: MOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMM (followed by he's touching me!she breathed on me!i can't find my basketball shoes!). it's an amazingly common name, eh?
these here are my favoritest people, the progeny. they're a rowdy, happy crew. i love them so.
(my other favoritest person, the hubby, is camera shy. or something.)
i'm a crafter of handmade goodies. also a burgeoning photographer.
1. waffles topped with strawberries and sweet cream
2. lyrical novels
3. stripey knee socks
5. british accents
6. anything smothered in chocolate, with this glaring exception
7. giving things away
which brings me to the part of this post where we give things away.
thing number one is a hand-stamped sterling teardrop pendant on a delicate sixteen-inch necklace with lucite floral accents. perfect for you, or the person whose birthday will sneak up on you next tuesday.
thing number two is mopsy, a bitty rabbit with a hand-cut note of affirmation. she's crafted from wool felt and the very last scraps of my amy butler ginger bliss fabric. i think i may enter to win this one myself.
in case you are afraid you'll miss out on mopsy, her brother flopsy is up for sale in my etsy shop.
to win thing one or thing two, please just say hi in the comment section below, and if you happen to have a good knock-knock joke, tack that on. (if not, no worries. just say hello.) i'm trying to teach my four-year-old actual jokes (as opposed to her made-up jokes, which inevitably feature the words potty, poop, and/or booty. it's just a stage, right?).
tell me in your comment which prize you'd prefer, and i'll pick two winners at random next weekend.
thanks for stopping by. party on.

kitchen aid artisan stand mixer from MomsWhoThink
