It’s back!!

Time for another completely random link up party! I was so surprised with the turnout from the last party, I just had to have another. Thanks so much to everyone that participated!

To make this even more random and exciting, this party is a little extra special because it’s also a giveaway.

See that small little mouse in the picture above? I’m giving away six of them! Woot! Woot!

So, let’s talk giveaway first, then will get to the party details.

*The Prize*
One Mouse Tealight (or in my case succulent) holder. There will be six winners.

2. Share this giveaway with a tweet,
 blog post, a PIN or spread the word on facebook. Then, come back here and leave an additional comment saying you did. 

This giveaway is open teveryone! Should you be a ‘no reply’ or ‘anonymous’ commenter, remember to include your email address in your comment so that I can contact you, should you win.

Okay, now for the super simple detail of the party…

Yep, only those two simple rules… 1. Something YOU created 2. within the past TWO months.

Fair enough?

Sounds good?

    This Mouse would totally adorable on my desk at work. With working along two cornfields in the midwest, we often get mice. We have come to call them our Cinderella mice & will sometimes leave them little tidbits to eat, but not before completing some little task to be able to get to the snack. I think that this Lil’ guy would be perfect to have setting there by me to brighten up my day!

    Just pinned the give away. I wish I could participate in the party. I gave a garden tea party with a few friends on Sat but I was so busy with the festivities that I didn’t take any photos. I made some cute crochet butterflies and created an awesome garden display with an old red flyer wagon and some watering cans filled with flowers and a strand of white Christmas lights to accent it.
