Summer Fun - Giveaway

Here I was thinking that we were "half way through the summer" when my dear little school-age friend reminded me sadly that "summer vacation is practically over."  Poor thing, I remember the days of school looming in the distance, each sun filled day threatening to past twice as fast.  But we must celebrate summer vacation while we can, and there's still a good month to go!  And what better way to get in the spirit than....



This week's giveaway is sponsored by Allen of Felton Leatherworks.  Felton Leatherworks is a locally owned, home based leather craft manufacturing company. They make hand tooled key chains, bracelets,wallets, knife sheaths, and portfolios.  All of their items are hand stitched, hand tooled, and can be personalized to make your purchase truly unique.
