Chicken Poop and flowers

Isn't that a catchy blog post title? I was the lucky random winner on Ivy's blog and Chicken Poop was the prize! No, it's not fertilizer.....it's lip balm! A very good lip balm!


Ivy sent me this adorable card, along with the Poop, and a box chock full of goodies! She could have easily slipped the Poop into an envelope, but she's such a generous friend. I love her bright, colorful cards and I ADORE her two little boys!

And remember this adorable little lunch box from Alice that I received for my birthday?





Lookie at what was inside the box--tons of floral goodness! I think I may never have to buy another flower for the rest of my crafting life!

See the crocheted ones in the bottom right corner? Handmade by the lovely Alice herself.

Ah, such wonderful friends!





Thanks so much for visiting today! I've been super busy working out at the gym (-13.5 pounds so far!) that I've neglected my blog and crafting, too!

I plan to catch up visiting blogs this weekend and stay tuned for a post with a "local" flavor--and a giveaway, too! Have an awesome weekend!
