Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Happppyyyyy Friday! Brrrrrr, it's a little nippy here in NY today. Makes me think I might want a nice hot lunch! Chicken perhaps! ;-)

I have some awesome news, winners! And, sadly since we only had three people play along, they are ALL winners! 

There is new challenge up, so get your sewing machines out and dig through your stash and create a cool project!!! Less people playing does mean more chances of winning. 

Anyhow, I said I had winners. This lovely basket and carriage really stole our hearts. I think it was the peacock feather, the colors and the contrast against the cream. Ime, congrats on your first place win!

It's a start by Sandi!

Hi everyone, Sandi here. Today I'd like to share an 'Ale log" that I made using some of the wonderful goodies in my vintage style Zeus and Zoe kit. While looking through all my goodies and deciding what I'd like to make, I came across this awesome 'brown ale' chipboard type label and decided to make an 'ale log' for hubby! Yup, he loves to sample different kinds of ale...but how do you keep all the tastes  straight? ale book. We will use this log to track the tastes, our likes, and samples using the fun is that. So this is our start...our log to start the taste tests! Lol!

Don't you just love the bright colors of the ale label! Also from the kit is that wonderful advertising paper in the background.

For more awesome embellies, vintage kits, chipboard, and fun trinkets, we invite you to visit our Zeus and Zoe Etsy shop!

Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon!
