A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

There just is no explaining it.....some people's hearts are so big that they overflow with generosity. That is exactly what happened to me this week. I was the very lucky recipient of a give a way from Stephanie of Queen of Dreamsz. Never did I expect to receive so many beautiful and lovely items in one box. Just look at the card! Even it is over the top beautiful.

I know by now that most of you have discovered the love that bloggers have for one another. On any given day, there are gorgeous give a ways out there. I wish I could win them all, but many I don't enter. Not because I wouldn't love to have what is being offered, but because I find if a favorite blogger is also a favorite seller and creates along the lines that I do, I will probably let the give a way pass. I'm crazy, I know. I usually am not a lucky person. I don't win anything, at least, that is what I used to say. I can't say that anymore, can I? HA!

When I peeked inside the box, I really didn't know what to expect, but I think I had to pick my mouth up off the floor because Stephanie blessed me with so many gorgeous things and I can't wait to begin to use them. There's pretty fabrics, trims, lace, and so much more. What fun awaits little ole me.

My mind is going in a hundred different directions wanting to just dig in and begin the creative process. Look at those wonderful trims.....and....

and all the gorgeous ribbons!!!

This makes me want to visit The Queen of Dreamsz and play in her workroom. I just know she has lots of hidden treasures waiting to be found.

Button, button, who's got the button??!!

Vintage keys too.

Wonderful flowers for scrap booking and making tags......yummy!

Oooh la la, yo yos and velvet leaves, what fun await me.
THANK YOU Stephanie for a win that I will not forget. You were over the top on this one my friend and I am very grateful.
Please visit Stephanie's blog at Queen of Dreamsz and see what she has been up too. You won't be sorry.

Sweet Char, I am so happy for you! What a box of treasures, and I know you will be creating something out-of-this-world beautiful with all those vintage goodies! Can't wait to see what shows up in your shop. You are blessed because you are such a blessing to others. Happy creating!

Oh, Char, that is beyond generous and SO delightful!

We had an uneventful/eventful cross country trip complete with a gps that took us on a route we were totally not expecting. Why didn't we change it? We were just so overwhelmed and late. Events we didn't plan.

Never even went through Phoenix. I think it was Flagstaff. I had the flu along the way. HA! Events.

Hope you are doing well.

Hi Char,

It's my pleasure...and thanks so much for the kind words. I've always said that if I were a rich woman much of my time would be occupied with sending beautiful things to those I love! And I have a long list of bloggers that are kindred spirits. ♥ I'm so happy to have met you. I'm always so delighted at the vast numbers of kind souls floating around The Land of Blog.

Now I just need to win that lottery!! ha ha

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥
