Hippity Hoppity Good Egg Giveaway Winners Announced!!!

Extra, Extra, Hop all about it, here are my hopping GOOD EGG winners for the giveaway! Congratulations to Lyn, my bunny will be hopping all the way to Victoria, Australia! You can hop over to visit Lyn here and see how my bunny likes Australia! The winner for my 2nd giveaway for posting a link rto the giveaway is Arlette in Costa Rica. You can visit her surprise here! (I won't let the surprise hop out though until she receives it in the mail...) It has been so much fun participating in the event and I want to give Sandi at A Legacy of Stitches a special thank you for creating such a hopping good egg hunt for all of us! THANK YOU!

I had surgery on Tuesday and was traveling from out of town on Monday so please forgive my late  posting of these winners. I am so happy to have made new friends during this event and look forward to making many more.

On that note... I am sponsoring a  MAY DAY SWAP EVENT. May day has always had special significance for me as the real first sign that Spring is here to stay. All through my childhood I have fond memories of collecting wildflowers for one of my neighbors every May Day, making them into a boquet and taking them to her house. Her face would light up like an angel each year and she'd invite us in for cookies. Jesse, I know you are up in HEAVEN smiling now as I dedicate this swap event in your memory.

The theme of the swap is FLOWERS! This event is open world-wide so be sure to let me know if you will ship internationally so I pair partners up accordingly!You may create any form of art as long as you incorporate flowers into it. When you receive your swap partner's email and address please send her/him an email of getting to know you information. For example: favorite flower, color, and a brief biological history of who you are and your blog  address. PLEASE CC your EMAIL to  me so I KNOW you have connected with your partner. If for any reason you become unable to do the swap, let me know so I can arrange to have a new partner for your partner. I will  be creating a FLICKER GROUP to post your pictures. You may join the swap beginning today and registration closes on April 9th, 2010.  Please email me your contact data, email address, blog address and name, your mailing address and phone number by April 9th. Packages should be mailed no later than April 30th, to be in time for MAY DAY! Please get a tracking number for your package as we all have had things lost in the mail. This should be fun and stress free and inexpensive! I suggest limiting your expenses to under $20.00 and a flat rate mailing package always helps keep shipping costs down for larger packages. You may create a link to my MAY DAY swap and grab the button/url... http://poemsmyway-valrie.blogspot.com/ and post it to your blog! PLEASE!!! It's such fun and you will make many new friends, just imagine the bouquet of friends just waiting to be gathered! How many is up to you!
be sure to let them know it's an FTD bouquet!

Tulips are my favorite flower! I am looking forward to a HUGE BOUQUET of MAY DAY SWAPPERS!

Have a flowering day! Here's a twist on a bouquet, pretty as flowers isn't it?! I found it when searching for butterfly arrangements for my daughter's upcoming wedding. You can find the tutorial in Martha Stewart's Weddings here!


  1. Valrie you have a lovely blog. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  2. Hi Valrie,
    Thanks for stopping by and inviting me to join your swap. I so wish that I could, but at this time of the year it is so busy with my students getting ready for finals that I have to slow down until June for swaps! I know that it is going to be fabulous though! I love this butterfly bouquet. I was just at Martha's place yesterday. I wish I had the imagination of that lady! Is she not the best? Have a great evening, and I'll be back soon!

  3. Hi Valrie, Thanks for inviting me to join your May Day Swap. I would love to create a wonderful "bouquet" for someone. Please count me in and find me a wonderful stateside partner.
