A Winner And A Peek A Boo!

And the winner is...Style Sisters...:)

Congratulations to you! Please, send me your addy @ screamingmemedesigns@gmail.com ...I will mail it out on Wednesday...



Another Simple Giveaway !!!!
I had so much fun with this...I loved reading all the comments and the gratitude you all have for simple gifts that you have received along the way...I plan on having another giveaway in two weeks...It will be a design related book...:) {If you have an idea for a design book you think would be a good giveaway...Let me know...} So, make sure to sign up for that giveaway on March 22nd...



Thank you again... for stopping in and telling me about a gift that warmed your heart...It was so much fun to read them and to get to know some of my favorite new bloggers I have met along the way...




Life is beautiful when you open your eyes and find gratitude in the little gifts that life has given us...Having this Giveaway has made me open my eyes to all the wonderful things that happen on a day to day basis...Here are a few "little" things I am thankful for...

  1. The smell of the grill on Saturday...It bought me back to when I was a little girl...and all the celebrations that were around a grill...I could hear all the laughter...and my Uncle Danny strumming his guitar...I could see all the kids running around trying to catch a lightning bug...the taste of the honeysuckles, that seemed to be so magical...



  2. My home...And all the memories...Like Daisy, my dining table...and all the the memories that have been shared around her...all the silly projects that I have attempted to create because I believed in myself enough to try... And my little headboard bench that I put on layaway...How she is a reflection of "Meme"...I walk through my home and every corner is a memory of my life...Some good, some sad and all treasured...Life is a journey you have to endure...But if you take a step back and look...really look...It is such a beautiful journey...



  3. My blog...It is my second home...I love Screaming Meme...As though she was a real person...as crazy as that sounds...I look at the header and I remember having Sadie Olive design her...She screams Meme...Those photos are of my beautiful Momma and my Uncle Ralph, who passed away too soon in life....She was the most talented person I ever knew...Everything she touched turned to gold...She was brilliantly talented...She looked like Grace Kelly...She still lives in my creativity...I feel a connection with her when I am creating and designing...Screaming Meme lets me do all the things I love all in one...Write, create, design, and be silly...All in one...:) The most important part is meeting women who are like me...I think that is the greatest part of blogging...Friendships... and a connection to a shared passion....



Here is a Peek~a~boo of my new slipcover I have been working on for those ugly...old...FREE...chairs that I drug home like some old bag lady...;) Yes, I do feel like Templeton, the rat, in Charlotte's Web sometimes...I will not hesistate to dig in someone's trash or drive 30 miles to pick up someone's junk...BUT...I do have to say...I also feel more connected with the Earth...because I am able to save and restore something that would otherwise be in our landfills...So, I guess that is a good thing...




I will post the reveal of my slipcover tomorrow or Wednesday...I have a few more things to do to it...Yay! I am so excited to get them both done...So, my kids can wollow all in them...:)



XoXo, Screaming Meme
