As many of you know, I attended the Junk Bonanza back in September. It was an amazing event to be sure! Ki and her crew did an amazing job! As one of the early bird attendees, I received a great bag full of goodies. Now, I got to thinking...why not share it with people who were not able to attend Junk Bonanza 2008 here in Minnesota?

  2. Okay! I have become a follower!!

    My of my close friends is a quilter, but I am not sure if she has heard of Thimbleberries, so if I do win this will go to her as I CANNOT sew worth a lick! I make jewelry out of vintage buttons!!

    Last but not least I am adding a button on my blog for this giveaway!!
    Three entries!! Woohoo!

  3. Your contest entry ideas are great. I'll probably steal them for my next contest!
