Good morning! We're so happy you're here and so happy it's Friday too! We thought we would start today's post by sharing a picture we shared on Instagram last night. Who wouldn't feel inspired to create in that room full of colour?  Thank you @justaddsunshineinc for letting us all dream a little! Friends we are always looking to see where our readers create so feel free to send us images of your space. Send them to and we'll be sure to share some from time to time!

Friday is also that day of the week we get to surprise you with a giveaway and today, we've also got some winners to announce. Let's start with the winners…

Subscription winner:  

I didn't get started crafting until Mom showed me how to cross-stitch … I was in my early 20's then. So at least 25 years. Thanks for the chance to win!  Posted by: Rebecca Yahrling | January 10, 2016 at 02:51 PM

CHA Mystery Box

What a wonderful way to celebrate the new year and break up the long winters here in Montana! Crossing my fingers and enjoying all the peeks of new products. Posted by: Kelly Block | January 09, 2016 at 09:17 AM

Seasons Giving Blog Hop – subscription and winter issue for a friend!

Congratulations ladies! Please send me an email directly at and we'll get those prizes on the way to you! Now, let's go to today's giveaway…


As we've been busy catching up from CHA and getting ready for all our upcoming spring events we've been cleaning the office a bit. And by clean, we have really cleaned! I've spent some time putting a box together of some of my favourite things we've seen and have used over the past year to create this fun box of goodies! Would you like it? If you would like an opportunity to hold this box (which will be more like a pizza box!) in your hands and squeal a little when you open it, just leave a comment below by next Thursday, January 28th! Good luck!

Hope you have a lovely and creative weekend planned! For our readers on the east coast, we hope you stay safe and warm. Thinking of you!
