Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

A give-a-way in our future…

I haven’t been showing up here lately as much as I like to but, when I haven’t been skipping across the state, I’ve been consumed with this project.  I can officially say that I’m caught up (only with that project).

At the end of this month I plan to do a give-a-way for my second birthday.  October 30, 2007 was my first, ever-so-humble post.  Complete with the photograph of me that was, safe to say, my mom’s least favorite…thus the ‘proof only’…yes, these pictures were never ordered.

feed bag...future...?OK, back to the give-a-way…I don’t have it made yet but my creative mind is telling me that it has something to do with this…an empty chicken feed bag.   Oooooo…I just can’t wait to see what becomes of it!

chickensSpeaking of chickens, here’s an update.  Aren’t they just so adorable?


And, it seems like my little Mister always has to be front and center.

Somehow, I keep getting distracted…OK, back to the give-a-way…

I am going to draw one name using all of the comments that have been left during the month of October.  Now, it hurts me to say this publicly….but, since I don’t really take in an exuberant amount of comments, everyone will have a grand chance at being a winner!

*ooo…oooo…ooooo…I just finished the ‘above mentioned item’ and it’s oh, so, adorable, fun, functional and grand!  …you just better start leaving those comments!    ~have I ever mentioned before that I really comments???

    • Hi there, Kristine – I’m so glad that you still come by to visit. I haven’t heard from you in a while…

      I’ve thought about using this idea to work with flour sacks. https://tinkerverve.wordpress.com/2009/09/17/lovely-linen/ They are so rare for me to find though that I would be so nervous about cutting into them. I have a very small sugar sack that I’ve thought I might work with first. I know it probably doesn’t show, but I get nervous about cutting into certain things….not feed sacks though…

      I actually just finished the feed-sack project and I really love it. Maybe you’ll be a winner…again!

      Have a great day and good luck! Elaine

  5. Hi Elaine,

She is an amazing young women(like her mom). I am home with a bug and am watching the big rainstorm beat my garden down. I guess it the time of the year. Still hard to say goodbye to my flowers. Hope to see ya sometime soon. Keep tinkering.You inspire me. Love Sheryl

  6. I just popped over from the Vintage Barn. Cute blog! Cute bag! Cute charm pendant! Cute chickens! I have to be honest though, I was scared of my grandmothers chickens when I was young. I though for sure they were going to peck my eyes out when I gathered eggs!
