A Farewell Gift, A Free Gift, A School Project and ATCs

Some months passed without anyone leaving the office, I mean, quitting from the job. A string of resignation now. This owl bookmark and card was tatted and given to Mariam. This owl bookmark is one of my favourites from Dianna Stevens' Animal Bookmarks - A Tatted Zoo.

I'm not often lucky, but this is one of the times. I won this book - "1,000 Jewelry Inspirations: Beads, Baubles, Dangles, and Chains" over at Craftside. I have noticed these 1000 Series of books previously, they are each loaded with 1000 coloured photos of the subject, giving you literally, a thousand of inspirations! I'm drooling all over simply leafing through the book!

My boy has to submit another school project again. Mummy has to helped again, and even his sisters were roped in to help with some typing work!

More ATCs done with tatting and paper cuttings. And I just found a local ATC group which meet monthly, more about that later!

This is my 99th post! I'm thinking of a giveaway in my next post. Watch the space!

I love the bookmark and the ATCs... I've been wanting to try them, just haven't gotten around to it yet. What a lucky prize! Can't wait to see what you make!

Congratulations on your winning! Woo hoo! That looks like a very nice book! I hope that you are able to show us some things that you've been inspired to do from it.
Your ATC's are very nice, too!

Congratulations on your upcoming 100th post! Aren't giveaways fun? I think winning them inspires us to host a giveaway ourselves sometimes, too!

Your work is always so inspiring!

Lovely Ellen! I haven't met you in a while. How are you doing?

Hi Ellen, I am back to visit because I wanted to let you know that I'm having a giveaway! Be sure to come on over and join in!

Hi Vinnie, Pamela, Bev, if you like owl, try my new owl pattern, a fast one, but it's mounted on felt.

Hello, Diane, ATCs are additive, because they are easy to finish for their size, and it really make you want to use all the skills and techniques you know and those you want to learn!

Hi Eileen, I'm still the same, and as busy as usual, but more with my children, my boy is taking his PSLE this year. Guess you are also busy with your work ?

Thanks, Tattingchic, for your giveaway!
