One World One Heart 2010: This Family's Magic Carpet Ride


Photo
Welcome to One World One Heart's Magic Carpet Ride at *my* blog, Kindergarten's 3 R's!




Seven years ago, the United States Army sent our family on its own version of a *~magic carpet ride~*.  First stop, the Land of Enchantment:





White Sands reminded us of snow with its shades of white, but it certainly wasn't as chilly as we had hoped.  We hopped aboard the camouflage carpet once again and flew (for the first time) to America's Breadbasket:





After two years in Oz, Uncle Sam asked us to spend a year in Texas.  We enjoyed the mountains and our special lunches with my Annie Rooney:








... only to have a return trip to Oz provided by the magic carpet.  Who knew that *this* time true ~winter weather~ would find us?





Dear Husband's eventual retirement from the Army means we may have only one more magic carpet ride left provided by Uncle Sam...


For those visiting my blog for the first time, I'm a full-time kindergarten teacher and a night-time/weekend paper crafter!  Recent winter weather provided several snow days' worth of crafting time for me, along with some much-needed reorganizing of my "crafty nook."  Lo and behold, what did I find?  Banners, banners, and more banners, in longer lengths, that I created as mock ups for later patterns I decided to sell in my Etsy shop.  Perky and *mostly* polka dotted, these paper banners ("bunting" for my European visitors!) are certain to brighten up any winter doldrums you might be experiencing.  


Friends and family use these for birthdays, wedding receptions, bridal and baby showers, and customers have told me they've enjoyed using them as fun accents around dessert tables, hung across headboards, chairs and picnic tables.  Lightweight, they're easy to fold and put away for another occasion.


Leaving me a comment on THIS POST ONLY will enter you in my giveaway, but if you become a follower of my blog (an option to the right of my blog posts~ look at all of those happy faces!), I'll put your name into the hat *twice*!


I'll have FOUR winners!


Winner Number One will receive (3) banners:





Winner Number Two will receive (2) banners:





Winner Number Three will receive (2) banners:





...and Winner Number Four will also receive (2) banners:





Drawings will take place and winners' names will be posted in my blog entry for  February 15 (I'll also email you if you've won!).  I'm **~so~** excited to come and visit all of you!


Happy travels, and HOOAH!
