Red all the way!!!

Congratulations the red pouch it is! I just sent her an email!

Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"

Hi, I am Lisa, almost 50, a Christian, Wife, Daughter, Momma and Nana. Thank you for stopping by "In The Boon Docks" today. I live here with my family, three dogs, and six chickens. Our home, is on the side of a hill, in the middle of nowhere, and shared by four generations. It is always busy around here. Right now, we have snow, ice, just got our furnace fixed (yippee), no school for the 8 year old for the last week, with a one year old quest visiting. Kind of crazy but still a great time! Vicki said it was nice to show a photo of yourself (one in the top lefthand corner) but I would rather show you my Granddaughter's first birthday photo (much cuter than me) from last weekend. She really likes cake and so do I. I admit I am not very organized and I am a bad cook great reason I married an excellent one who will graduate with a degree in Culinary Arts this Spring.

Thank you, Vicki @ 2 Bags Full for creating and organizing this blog hop. It is a huge undertaking and it is so nice you did it so all of us can meet!

A blogger of two years, I love to sew every day. This blog is my door to the outside world. I talk about sewing, quilting, crafting of all kinds. I am a recycler of sorts, finding things I need to make projects at a much reduced cost. I have at least two sponsored posts monthly with giveaways that are opened to everyone who live anywhere.

I don't cook much but I do grow and can fruits and vegetables, bake, and make candy! Well to be honest I talk about everything and invite you to share. It is always more entertaining with interaction from others. I think I am done talking about myself. Nice to meet you and I hope you will come back again. Let's have a giveaway!

Giveaway

I need to make a pouch this weekend and decided I would make two. One for me and one for you, if your number is picked by Mr Random.org.

1. Leave a comment if you would rather have the pink pouch or a red pouch. (This is an equal opportunity blog and if you are male and win I will make you another more manly pouch, if you wish).

2. Since we are trying to grow blogs! If you are a follower you get an extra chance! Leave a second comment telling me what color hair you have!

If you are a no-reply blogger please leave your email - comlisajohnson(at)gmail(dot)com
