Giveaway Day!


I decided to do a giveaway today, I hope you like what I have chosen. This week was recovering and catching up and heavy cleaning, so I didn't get to finish my new project. My sister is coming next week, so I want to get everything done, so we can enjoy having fun together.

This mat I made awhile ago, it has been sitting in my box of goodies, so I think it is time to let someone enjoy it. It is stained but not too dark and would be a nice mat for a round table or beneath a candle holder. It measures 9 1/2" round, even though it is a little wonky.

This piece is nice for spring or fall. To enter, please answer any of the following questions. Do you have a favorite craft supplier, who has good prices and sells in bulk. I am looking for small driftwood pieces or ornaments made with barn wood, unfinished that I can use for the glass or other items.

Or this question: If you have a cat, what is the best litter box. Moki is pre diabetic so I have to feed him lots of canned food and lots of water, which means lots of cleaning. It is a mess and smelly, and was wondering if there is actually one that cats will use and omits the mess and smell.

And if you don't have a cat or buy craft supplies, any housecleaning tips? Ways to get more done in less time when you live with a slob?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. This contest is open to all of my followers and will end next Friday, September 21st. I will announce the winner that night. I also have lots of Christmas goodies in my box, so there will be another giveaway before Christmas.

Debbie, I hope you get some useful answers. Not many creative craft places here, I am dealing with a messy shedding dog, and I am the head slob in this messy place. The only way to get things tidied up here, is to have guests coming over. Maybe you need to invite your sister over more often. Good Luck!

I'm with Julie, don't have any suggestions for you as I can't think of any Canadians sources for those item, I'm not s cat person or have any friends with cats and am head slob myself. But as they say slow and steady wins the races even if you aren't first!

Hope you get some good tips.

I too hope you get answers. Unfortunately, I don't have a good source for those types of supplies and fortunately I don't have a cat since I am allergic to them. As to cleaning, I don't think I am a good source for advice, but I have found that doing a little bit as I go along instead of waiting until it turns into a project seems to help.

Well, I do have a cat but I just use your ordinary litter box, nothing special. As far as cleaning tips, I use a lot of Norwex products, love the envirocloth, dusting mitt and their mop!

Love your candle mat. I used to have two cats. The one would always use the litter box, but have her bottom hanging over the side, which made a mess. Things got better when I bought one with a lid. Lecia

Love the mat you stitched! I'm not sure about "bulk" pricing, but I know that pet stores sell driftwood pieces ... (Pet Supplies Plus, PetSmart, Chewie dot com, etc.) I wander around those places all the time looking for things for my pup. :o) Maybe one would have what you're looking for ...??? Cleaning tips - lock your slob in the garage while you clean up! LOL Mine has an office out there, and knows when to stay away ...

that's a lovely mat... my top housekeeping tip is take off your glasses.... there is a lot less dirt that way. No seriously the best habit we picked up was do things at the time... like put the washing in the laundry straight away... not leave towels on the floor etc... Not that it always works. Postage is wicked so don't include me in the draw....but thank you xx
