freebie winner & button frenzy!

Excited to know who won my Friday Freebie??

According to...

The winner of these goodies... Kasey at All That is Good! You know...our Friend Makin' Monday host!

In her comment, she says... "OKAY here I favorite Easter tradition? Well every Easter after church my family along with some others from my parents church stay afterwards and we take family pictures of each other. It started out with my parents, my sister, brother, and me. It has grown to 16 of us now (spouses and 8 grandchildren). It's fun to look back and see how the family has grown and how we each have changed!"

Kasey, congratulations! Send me an e-mail at heidilynneboos{at}hotmail{dot}com with your mailing address and I'll be sure to get your goodies in the mail!

Thank you to everyone who entered in my first time hosting Friday Freebie! I loved reading all of your Easter traditions, and might have to start some of them this year! Be sure to head on over to Heidi's at Sacred and Profane every Friday to continue your chance at winning something fun!


And, now onto some creative inspiration!

This week's Monthly Craft Challenge is to create something out of buttons! I was "surfing the web" the other evening and thought I would share the many button crafts that are out there. Hopefully one of these will motivate you to get crafty and link up with us on Thursday, April 2nd.

Thanks for all the button inspiration. I had been trying to "re-find" the button ring project. I think that looks sweet. I am glad you had the link!
