Announcing a May Day Tussie Mussie Giveaway

I've really enjoyed making tussie mussies of late, and with May Day approaching, what better time to have a giveaway? Leave a comment on this post anytime between now and April 30. On May 1st, a winner will be selected. I am currently working on the giveaway prize, so it is not one of these pictured - these are already listed for sale on my website.

Swaps Galore!

She did a beautiful job - look at the sweet vintage bird on top - I just love it! And all the goodies she sent. The last pic is a sneak preview of the tussie mussie I made for her.
