A Gratitude Filled Giveaway

The time has come for a little ‘thank you’ giveaway for all the comments, likes, follows and feedback on over 500 posts! πŸ’•


So, to the important bit, what’s in it for you?



Well, some just sweet enough, slightly crunchy but still chewy, waffle like cookies, held together with a caramely syrup, kindly supplied by Double Dutch Cookies 🀀


(Extra scrumptious when paired with coffee I might add πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»β˜•οΈ)



A small, hand lettered piece by me, though I have no picture to lure you with, because I am waiting to create it until I know who the winner is πŸ˜‰


Annnd a $25.00 gift card to use over at Maple Jane Design!!




A local maker of many lovely knitted and crocheted things, my personal favourites being her toques πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»



This giveaway is going to be a little different from the last couple I’ve held.

To enter, you will have to COMMENT ON THE BLOG, something you have learnt about me, during your time following along.

After over 500 posts, I would think that shouldn’t be too difficult πŸ˜‰

It can be one word or multiple sentences, there is no right of wrong observation. 

(If you’re new to Jemstory and don’t feel like you really know much about me, just comment whatever you desire πŸ˜‹)


The first five people to comment, will receive an extra two entires πŸ˜‰βœŒπŸΌ


The winner will be announced on Friday, so get commenting and feel free to tell others about it πŸ“†πŸ˜„πŸ’ŽπŸŽ‰πŸ› πŸ’—πŸ’³πŸ“²


Some ‘Crafty’ Crafters

Tuesday Dec 27th –




Shainah had invited Mom and I to join her, Carmen and Mel for a little craft day so we headed there for 11:00 am.

Mike was happy to have Reidar to watch some soccer with, someone who enjoyed it and felt the same joy as he for once😜
They left to do their own thing eventually, but not before lunch was served.

A super tasty lemon, chicken soup was given to us along with a sandwich made on scrumptious, warm, homemade, cranberry and walnut bread ❀️🍡🍴



The master crafters I was with whipped up some crazy things for the amount of time we were there.


Try a toque including a pom pom, an entire apron pattern pieced together, ironed and sewn, a yarn tapestry perfected and some beautiful lettering drawn out and embellished and a teacher perfecting her upcoming lesson plans for wee brains.

I made some ‘cheater’ stitched designs, meaning I drew them and only added a thread or two for texture 😜
I plan on finding some miniature embroidery hoops to put them in eventually, so they can then be used as a necklace or pin.
So if anyone has seen mini embroidery hoops, let me know! 😬
I also attempted to make a yarn tapestry thing but I don’t know if it’s my calling 😏

We found strength to continue crafting when we were served up a lovely piece of crumb cake, drizzled (poured) with a butter sauce and coffee (or tea for those of us who lack taste budsπŸ˜‰)

I don’t think I’ve ever been so well nourished while crafting πŸ˜‹ Continue reading “Some ‘Crafty’ Crafters”
