DUM-roll please....

Today is my 1 year blogiversary! I think people celebrate blogiversaries for the sole purpose because it is such a great excuse for a giveaway... at least that is what I think.
So, for my "great excuse for a giveaway" day, I will be celebrating with a whole-lotta DUM DUMS!!! Guess how many Dum-Dums are in this jar....
Leave a comment with your guess... and feel free to leave a little extra just to make my day. :o)
The first person to guess exactly how many dum-dums that are in the jar or is the closest to the number of dum-dums in the jar wins this...
Contest ends Friday, August 28, 2009 at midnight. Winner will be announced on Monday, August 31. Good Luck!

September 11

Saw this from Moda Lissa.

We have a little less than one month and counting to get the word out all across this great land and into every community in the United States of America.

If you forward this email to least 11 people and each of those people do the same ... you get the idea.

On Friday, September 11th, 2009, an American flag should be displayed outside every home, apartment, office, and store in the United States . Every individual should make it their duty to display an American flag on this eighth anniversary of one of our country's worst tragedies. We do this to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11, their families, friends and loved ones who continue to endure the pain, and those who today are fighting at home and abroad to preserve our cherished freedoms.
In the days, weeks and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shoulder against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled us through some tough times and it shouldn't take another attack to galvanize us in solidarity. Our American flag is the fabric of our country.

I have only boys and it so hard to include them in my designing and creating so I was extremely happy to see the boy's shirt. How adorable is that?!

An Authentic Tutorial and Giveaway!!!

I am sooo excited about my latest MBS tutorial... YOU MUST GO CHECK IT OUT!

I had this idea of re-vamping and modernizing the "t-shirt dress" and ended up coming up with this little creation. It features the new Authentic line by one of Moda's newest designers, Sweetwater. Of course it also had to feature my two most adorable little chitlins. :)

I couldn't leave out the boys, so I designed this cute little shirt to coordinate with the little girls shirt dress. Abcd templates are included with the tutorial.

So.. go now and check it out... OH.. and don't forget to let me know what you think! Would love to hear from you all!

OH... what the heck... lets do a GIVEAWAY to celebrate my excitement on this project. {insert giddiness here}

1. Leave me a comment and get an entry. Be "Authentic"! :)

2. Post about my new tutorial on your blog and link to my blog/tutorial and then leave me another comment letting me know you posted with a link back to your blog for a second entry.

The prize? How about an "Authentic" package... an Authentic Charm Pack and a "notions" zippered pouch all tucked away in a small canvas "abcd" tote made by me.

Hurry... Giveaway entries deadline is Sunday, August 9, 2009! I will announce the winner on Monday, August 10.

So.. go forth and enter!
