Happy Moo Year!

The next year is just a few days away, and CPLG is going to be giving away a surprise each month. I've been thinking about the new year with Rose Colored Glasses if you'll excuse the mixed metaphor, so let's go with the grass is always greener on the other side! Now greener can have all kinds of meanings, and one that I certainly hope applies will be the reusing of wonderful items. I call it upcycling(now) when the idea was new to me it was called recycling, and in the olde days, there was a saying "Use it up, Use it Out or Do without". So while the words change and the ideas transform, a good trait(thrifty ~ use/reuse of things with value) endures.

To kick off our year of giving, I'm offering a cow which I hope will bring you a year of prosperity. It is made from a "cutter quilt" in the pattern known as Grandmother's Flower Garden. This one seems unusual to me in the use of the brown fabrics. It immediately suggested cows to me. How now brown cow, and all that jazz...

To win this cow is simple. Leave a positive comment about one of the two following topics.

  1. upcycling
  2. coming new year

How easy is that? Well, honestly, if you are not a member of cplg it gets even more probable!!!
I'll draw from available names, with a preference for non group members. If none exist, then ladies in the group will be most likely to win! I'll need to ship this item to the winner, so if you are interested, please keep reading the blog for an announcement. Winner to be chosen on January 15th, the last day of our Valentine Launch. Y'all make a comment and come on back now!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It doesn't seem possible that Christmas is nearly here, and it is just a week until the New Year. (It certainly needs to be a better year!) We've all had plenty of blessings this year, but lots of worries and wondering!

CPLG will be starting the year off with a launch of Valentine Keepsakes, and may have some Patriotic Items in the mix as well... beginning on January 1st, keep searching for just the right way to let someone know you care. Until then, remember to enjoy this time with our families, and remember this season(Christmas) is all about Hope and Joy!
