Dough Bowl~Bingo~Winner

We went to the book store for a book bag and came out with this.  I couldn't believe it!!!  A whole display of prim goodies sitting there just for me.  How lucky am I to find such a beautiful replica at the book store?  I can't think of what to put in it quite yet so it will sit on my table for now as I stare at it and figure it out.

Every year at our family reunion we play bingo with prizes that are from yard sales, thrift stores, or that are homemade.  Grandma provides the bulk of it all with the families pitching in here and there.  Here are my contributions:
"Pocket" Monsters:  One morning I decided to cut up some corduroy maternity pants and make these darling things.  Isn't it fun to see what the mind can come up with?  Oh boy, when "middle" woke up and saw what mama had going on she was all over them.  She had to have one of her own by the end of the day.

Printed Pillows: I had so much fun running fabric through my printer last time that I just had to try it again.  I gathered the girls around the printer (ok, I was showing off.  I wanted my girls to think I was really cool) and proceeded to show them how awesome I was to run fabric through the printer.  Then it got stuck and I had to bite my tongue and send them away while I yanked and pulled it out.

Specially Designed Jars: Earlier I made some Apothecary jars and Pamela made a comment about using the same idea for sprinkles.  Well I thought it was such a good idea that I did it.

 Some for the boys

Some for the girls

 Hopefully the family will like the prizes as much as I liked making them.

Alright, alright.....now on to the really important thing.....and the winner of my
Christmas In July Giveaway 


Thanks for all who entered and gave me such sweet words for my first year blogiversary.  
Wishing you all a wonderful week and weekend.
