We Have Winners!!

I want to thank each and every one of you who came out during the celebratory giveaway and commented to let me know how you like the look of my new and updated website, CrazyQuiltingSupplies.com and left a comment to be entered to win one of the boxes of laces and other goodies!

I had friends come from far and near and I really enjoyed seeing where you all are from! 

USA Friends!
Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi,  Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania,  South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin

International Friends!
Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, Malaysia, Israel, Australia, Switzerland, Brazil

And there were several who didn't say where they were from and their location wasn't in their profiles but know where-ever you are from, I count you my friend!!

And that brings me to one more tid-bit of information for this giveaway!

Not only will there be 2 boxes given away ... but I have now added a 3rd box for those people who I do not know where you are from! I did not make entering your location a requirement of the giveaway so I feel like I should have a 3rd category so you all have a fair chance of winning!  If I put one of you in the International list and you wound up being from the USA and your number was chosen to win, it would knock an International friend out of her winnings and vice versa.. So, since I don't know where to put you.. there is a 3rd category!

Does that make you smile?? :)

It should!!

SO!! On with the winners!!

USA Winner!! (Claimed!)
From Ohio!

International Winner!! (Claimed!)
From Ireland!

3rd Winner!! (Claimed!)
From California!
 Jennifer Cheek-Payan !!

I will send each of these winners an email as soon as I post this! If either of them fail to reply to the email within 5 days, I will draw another winner!

I hope that you all will periodically browse my website to see what has been added new since your last visit!  I am in hopes of stocking many more different items to keep the site full of interesting finds to keep you coming back, time and time again!  If you are ever in search of something that you simply are having a terrible time finding, shoot me an email and I will see if I can locate it for you!

Now, get those needles humming!

Happy Stitching!

I Am Back and With A Fabulous Giveaway!

The giveaway is closed as of 9:05 am!
I will be announcing the winner this afternoon after I take my mother-in-law and her 2 sisters into town for a fun girls day out!

YEP! It has been a month since I have posted!! But I have a good excuse! I have been VERY busy with a few things and one most important thing was revamping my website!!  
I wanted to have this posted earlier today but my internet carrier decided otherwise! grrr

I have had a website for a few years that was dedicated to my longarm quilting studio.  With a few health problems (nothing serious), I have been unable to quilt like I would like to. So I have been pondering over moving in a new direction.  I made the decision to invest in crazy quilting supplies to offer on my website and I have been busy over the last month putting a brand new face to the site and stocking the shelves!!

And a  face lift warrants a brand new name!!

This blog post and giveaway is in celebration of a Re-Grand Opening of my website...

Crazy Quilting Supplies.com is a full service crazy quilting supply shop bringing you various supplies such as venise lace, venise lace motifs, silk ribbon, vintage buttons, charms, fancy fabrics, threads, reclaimed jewelry bits, brooches, costume jewelry,  button storage for all of those beautiful vintage buttons, Czech glass buttons, Beaded Cabachons, trims and so much more! 

You will just have to come over to the shop to see all of the goodies available! And over the next month, I will be uploading even more goodies so keep checking back because you never know what you might find!!

And just so you know... There is free shipping for all orders over 100.00 for my USA friends and 1/2 price shipping for orders over 100.00 for my International friends!

To celebrate I am giving away 2 beautiful boxes FULL of laces, charms, buttons, embellishments and thread!

1 box for a USA friend!
1 box for an International friend! 

Both boxes are identical!! They are full to the rim with goodies that will make any crazy quilter squeal with delight!!!
Please grab the code off of my right sidebar and place my button on your websites and/or blogs to help me spread the word about my new site! I would truly appreciate it!

Please leave a comment here on the blog in order to sign up for the giveaway telling me what you think about my website... what you like about it, what you don't like about it, what you would like to see available in the future...! 

You MUST leave your email in the comment if you do not have it in your google profile. If I do not have an email to contact you with, your entry will have to be voided. I need a way of contacting the winners.

Good luck everyone!!

Giveaway ends when I get up on Friday morning - 4/20/12 - after I have my oatmeal!

Just so you know.. 
I will still be quilting but not on a full time basis.  
I will be quilting for a small number of clientele who make show quilts because as most of you know quilting for show makes me the happiest!
There is a link to the quilting studio at the bottom of the home page of the website.

All Set And Ready To Go!

I have been sneaking a half hour here and a half hour there to crazy quilt but I am SO ready to dive back in and stitch for as long as I want whenever I want! I have been so busy getting my website stocked for the re-grand opening that it has consumed almost all of my time! I am also working on some longarm quilting for clients and one important show quilt for a friend so the crazy quilting has gone wanting..

Today I took the time to reorganize my crazy quilting closet! It had become a wreck but there was no time to devote to getting back in shape! Today I just had this overwhelming urge to get in there and get er' done and that is exactly what I did!  Well it is now ready to go full speed ahead once and again and so am I!!  

I need a serious CQ fix!! Not just a half hour or so!

I wanted to share my crazy quilting space with all of you and hope to inspire some of you to get your spaces organized, if they aren't.  You can work so much better when you can find what you are hunting... 
Just ask me how I know. :)

I am in a couple of block swaps with other ladies and will be hopefully finishing blocks for 3 ladies this week if I can squeeze all 3 in with the longarm quilting I am doing. Maureen, Cathy and Connie have sent blocks my way and I will be returning them a block from me.  Once they receive their blocks, I will show photos of what I received and what I sent out.... so stay tuned..

For now enjoy the eye candy of my crazy quilting closet! I can't wait to drag out my table and sit down right in front of that closet and stitch!

My flowers, butterflies, Czech buttons and other goodies!

Tons of beads!!

Books and buttons and more embellishments!

Lace and lace motifs!

 Finished pieces and unfinished pieces! Oh yeah, more beads!

Floss and threads!

Linens, rickrack and ribbon!

Riversilks and Thread Art ribbon! and lotsa buttons and charms!

Some of my quilts!

By the way...

Have you seen the post for the giveaway I am hosting??


Well then.. Go HERE and check it out! :)
