A patriotic pin pillow and what I won last week

Here's the thing about having limited access to stores that sell fabric or trim : I finally get a chance to browse, I find stuff to finish several items all at one time. And here's the one that I put together last night:

That's three finishes in a week, kind of amazing for me. I really like the fabric I used for the backing. Here's the back view:

When I got home from work today, I was thrilled to find two packages waiting for me. One was full of gifts that I had ordered for a family member, and the other was the prize package that I won for commenting on Tim Holtz's blog. Check out this fabulous haul!

I'm really happy with the whole thing. What a great prize, especially considering the number of prizes he gives away this time of year!

I'm trying to organize and downsize my scrapbooking products. I just gave the neighbor child a big bag full of papers and stickers. She seems really excited about it. And I've found quite a few things that the cats had temporarily misplaced for me. I also came across a bag full of tags that I created during the 12 Tags of Christmas a couple of years ago. I really need to put these things to use. Maybe use them as labels for the gifts I'm giving away this year? I'm just not sure yet...
