New Baby Pictures & A Few More Goodies For the "Giveaway"

UUUUUWWW Let me show you my baby pictures!!! :c}

Now don't you agree this is about the cutest new Papa and baby son you have seen in a "coon's age"?? :c}

Hmmm I don't know about you but these will never do. Nope not for my first grand baby!! I think the first thing this Grandma has to do is purchase a digital camera for Dylan's parents. That is if I expect to get pictures bigger then a postage stamp!! :c}

Here is what I have put together for my giveaway. There are some pieces of hand embroidery done by some of the indigenous women of Guatemala. There is the a dainty blue flowered beaded bracelet made by some of the indigenous women in the state of Nayarit Mexico. I also found the little hand painted cross painted by Indigenous women in the State of Oaxaca Mexico.

And then I threw in a set of Mexican "lottery" cards. Gambling is against the law in Mexico. However they have these types of lottery games which to the untrained I (me) look just like Bingo!! The set here is used a lot to teach kids the names of objects. Besides the many faces of Frida Kahlo these are the only paper art I have seen used to decoupage. There are boxes, tables, and I even have the cutest little kids red bench they were decoupaged on :c} So have a little fun in your projects with these. They are even small enough to use in ATCs :c} Lastly I made a little tote from a tapestry I had in my trusty stash pile,to put all your treasures in.

Course if you don't leave me a comment and a mailing address how will I ever know that you would like LW to draw your name as the winner?? So go ahead leave me a comment and if you let me know you posted about my giveaway in your blog I'll throw your name in twice :c
If you are the least bit uncomfortable leaving your address here on my blog just send me an email (

Have a good day or evening my Bloglandian friends depending on what part of the world you live in :c}

I followed your from Dawn's site and I'm glad I did! Your giveaway items are interesting and I love the little cross. Your giveaways pale though, in comparison to that wonderful little baby! Congratulations to you! I am also a RN, not yet lucky enough to retire (do nurses ever really retire?) I always love meeting other nurses online. Enjoy that baby!

What a wonderful little package that arrived! He is so very adorable! Congrats on your very first little darling!

You give away is wonderful. I love all the bright colors and indigenous materials. I'll run over and add a link to the end of my post for today.

Have a super weekend!

Keep an eye out to see how many of your little doggies jump into your suitcase!! They will be thinking that you will never notice..
Hope you get a chance to blog while you are away so that we can stay up to date with all the news.


Pleeeeease count me in for the draw. Such beautiful luscious things that they are lol.

I'll link to you from my page too, as you have a very colourful and interesting site.

Have a GREAT day at the beach, and think of us poor souls over the pond in the cold but sunny UK

Everything is so pretty and colorful. Congratulations on your adorable grand child. I don't live close to my 3 yr. old grand-daughter and only get to see her maybe three times a year. But we will spend Christmas with them this year. I love that picture of you and DH on the back of the boat. I would love to be entered in your give-away.
