At long last, for sale!

In the works for ages, I've finally got a page up with crochet mats for sale - and a mini tutorial on how to use them. And to celebrate, a card using one:

Supplies: papers from MME; Spun Sugar distress ink; Rose stamp from Stampin' Up; Grey Flannel Memento ink; sentiment stamp from Paper Smooches; lacy circle & classic small circle Nesties

And how about a giveaway? Want to win some mats? Leave me a comment on this post telling me............

what should I get my husband for his 45th birthday next week? 

I'll draw a winner next Wednesday :) Winner will receive 12 mats in their choice of size/shape/colour!

xoxo,
Jessi

And a PS health update - no cold, just a NASTY case of asthma-gone-wild. New puffer=new woman. It's so nice to breathe almost-full breaths again!

CONGRATULATIONS, Jessi!!! I always get so many lovely comments when I use one of your fabulous crocheted mats. So glad you decided to sell them!! I'm wishing you much success!!

A 45th birthday coming up, eh? How about his fave meal and an afternoon of complete solitude? No, wait, that's what's on MY wish list . . .

Congrats Jessi! No need to enter me in the giveaway... just wanted to tell you how beautiful these are, and wish you lots of success in your sales! :)

Wow! Great Jessi! Hope you have lots of sales! I'm still hoarding the ones I won! LOL I'm a tad jealous -- I don't have any pink ones. Yes I will have to remedy that soon! Don't count me in the blog candy, since I already won one of yours. Spread the beauty!

So glad you are feeling better! Your card is gorgeous - the mats always look fantastic. I never know what to get my own hubby for his birthday, so I am afraid I won't be much help. I usually torture myself trying to come up with ideas, fail miserably and then end up baking him cookies (he loves cookies) just so he knows I at least remembered.

Hugs, Dawn

Glad to hear that you are feeling better, as for masculine birthday presents that is impossible, what about 'band hero' I bought that for my hubby one year lol. Congrats on sorting out your mats for sale, they are stunning!

Marie said...

You are one multi talented gal! What a great idea to crochet around that die cut. You sure do have a lot of patience. Glad your breathing is under control.

For your DH...a gift card to your favorite restaurant oh, ah I mean his favorite restaurant (wink)

Such a beautiful and feminine card! The perfect thing to showcase those beautiful crocheted mats:) Did I tell you I finally used one of your mats! I keep wanting to but I was afraid to ruin them, lol! I finally forced myself to stamp on one and I gave it to a coworker. She was very impressed with me (I never confessed that I didn't make it, heehee).

I'm glad you're feeling better too! When I first read your post, I was like "what does a new fish have to do with feeling like a new woman?". I'm such a dork, lol!

Cheryl said...

Sorry to hear you've been feeling bad. My DD has asthma, it is definitely no fun at all! Congrats on your new mat-selling venture. I hope it's a huge success! And, Happy Birthday to your DH!

Lovely card, and I really like those mats. What to get your hubs? That's a hard question since I really don't know him or his likes/dislikes, etc. I think I got my Hubs new golf clubs for his 45th (yikes, was I really that generous - LOL???). How about 44 small things leading up to one big one? Maybe the smaller things can lead up to the big finale. Just a thought.

Glittered Paws said...

The mats are simply beautiful - who wouldn't love to have just one!!! Birthdays for men (especially husbands) are always challenging, I would cook his fav dinner and make his fav cake and rent his fav movie.

Now this is a stunner! Love how perfectly that stamp matches the background paper and I'm diggin' that Grey Flannel ink.
And whoop whoop for selling the crochet mats!
