T-Shirt Contest and Other News

Denise from Samaritan Women has started a new blog, Sew the Word and she's having a T-Shirt contest. This looks like it is going to be FUN, FUN, FUN. Denise has a little shop at her home and she designs all kinds of wonderful things. Here is an example of the T-Shirt.

And this is what Denise has to say about the contest:

THIS IS JUST TO GET YOUR JUICES FLOWING IT IS NOT THE DESIGN...............
I have wanted to do this for a while and Sharon over at Sit With Me A While has encouraged me to jump in there and do it sooooooooooooo here is the deal...
.........I do graphic design and screen print and I want to design a tee shirt for the all the ladies here in the blog world.. I want you ladies out there and men if they are around to submit the caption of the shirt.......... Now I have a little shirt at the top of this post and it is just to get your juices flowing...... A Caption ..... Like Blogger Buddies--- Ladies of the Blog--- Friends of Cyber..... ok you get the idea... There are some very very clever ladies out there and I know that one of you can come up with something sooooooooo special. After we close the contest I will post all the ideas and we will vote on them.........
.... The clever lady that submits the winning caption will win a free shirt... Then the shirts will be on sale on my blog and I promise that they will be at a very good price..... I want all the ladies and men to have a shirt....... How much fun is this going to be....
The shirts will not be limited to one color but to several colors that will suit the design..... I will use heavy weight cotton Tee's and I will find some V neck Tee's for the ladies that do not like the conventional Tee...... I have been screenprinting since 1988 and I will do quality work...
..........I am going to show some of my work on the side bar so that you can see that I can do a good job with this project..
but I need your help...... come up with a very catchy caption and I will design the shirt ...... I will keep this open till 12 noon on Valentine's Day.. that will give us pleanty of time to get the word out .............. Put on your thinking cap..............

Denise is a very talented woman and this is a wonderful idea, so head on over to Sew the Word and take part in the contest.


In other news, it has been snowing here all night and all day. We don't have a lot of accumulation but there were whiteouts this morning. My SIL started off for the 1.5 hour drive to work and a half hour into his trip, turned around and came home because of the whiteouts. The roads were really slippery this morning as well, though they are pretty much clear now. The salters and sanders worked all night to get the roads in decent shape for the commute to work this morning and the city streets weren't too bad. It's the country roads, which my SIL travels that were bad.



Daughter, Michelle, is having some pain from her cyst and she believes that it's growing. She has had a tough month with having a tooth removed, the news of her surgery and now pain. Please keep her in your prayers.

Not much else going on around here. The usual. I didn't get my laundry done yesterday, so am doing it today. I wanted to go to the scrapbooking store to see what I could find for the boys' scrapbooks that I got them at Animal Kingdom. If any of my readers or friends are experienced scrapbookers, any ideas or advice would be very welcome. This is my first attempt and I want the scrapbooks to be perfect. If I get them done in time, I plan to give them to the boys for Easter. If not, I will either give them to them for their birthdays or wait until next Christmas.

I hope each of you have a wonderful day. I enjoy reading your comments and visiting your blogs, but am still not fully caught up since vacation. Thank you all for visiting me and commenting. I value your friendship.

If you haven't entered my giveaway, be sure to do so today. Enteries will be closed at midnight tonight EST. The winner will be announced on tomorrow's post. Good luck to everyone that enters. I wish you could all win, but unfortunately there can be only one winner.

~Blessings, Mary

  2. Tammy,

    I'm also thinking on a caption for Denise's contest. I haven't come up with anything yet.

    Michelle is feeling a little better this afternoon. I will be glad when the surgery is over and she no longer has to content with the pain.

    Thanks for the prayers and for dropping by. I always enjoy visiting with you.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  3. Afternoon Mary!! I just got a chance to go over comments left for me today....and regarding that 'favorite commercial' of mine on my sidebar...I LOVE that one so much I took days of searching for it by rewording the searches in You Tube 'til I found it. I cry every time ---even today, when I take the time to click on the link...yes, I love it that much. And the sad thing is, they don't have it on TV any more. :o(

    Have a great evening.

  4. You will have fun doing those scrapbooks. There are usually lots of things you can add that are Disney related. I love to scrapbook, so if you have a question give me a holler!

    We have the dreary weather today but at least not as cold. I know yours is colder but this is the south and it should be warmer.
    I think you are a very thoughtful Grandma to fix up those books for the boys.
    Never seen a whiteout and don't want to ever have the experience.
    Peace

  6. Anni,

    I love that commercial too and enjoyed watching it. Thanks so much for sharing.

    There were some Bell Canada (telephone) commercials on a few years ago that I loved, but they aren't shown anymore either. Seems all the good stuff quits being shown.

    Thanks for stopping by and answering my question.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  8. Lady Di,

    Yes, the south should be warmer and am glad it is. It has warmed up a little here, but there are major warnings out for travelers. Blizzard conditions and whiteouts, car pile ups etc. I will post more about it later if I have a chance.

    I have never done scrapbooking before - well I did as a kid. I entailed pasting photos in a book. LOL I know it's much different today.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  9. A day snowed in at home sounds so great. But I imagine that it would cause real problems with the hourly workers.
    I know the pain that your girl is going through. I know she will be so glad when it is over. Praying for an ease in the pain. And God if you would would you just please remove it?
    Thanks

  10. Sharon,

    You are a dear and yes, God can remove it without the need of surgery.

    Thanks so much for your constant prayers for me and my family. They are very much appreciated, my Sister.

    Love and blessings,
    Mary

  15. I hope the scrapbooks turn out well for you - I have never tried anything like that.

    Isn't it hard when your child is hurting??

  16. Dawn,

    I have never tried scrapbooking before either. I will let you know how it goes. I've been wanting to get to the scrapbooking store but our weather is so bad here I stayed in where it was safe and warm.

    No matter how old our children are, it is difficult then they have health problems. I will be glad once the surgery is over and she is on her way to recovery.

    Blessings,
    Mary

    Thank you for the invitation to enter your blog contest. I appreciate it, but I have recently won one, so I will give someone else a chance to win yours.
