Our First Facebook Giveaway!

I'm not above bribery .... are you?  In my quest to get Perfectly Creative out there, I'm asking for your help ....  Some of you have already "Liked" us on Facebook, and we greatly appreciate that ... but we're a little greedy.  We want more!

We're setting a short goal of reaching 30 Facebook fans.  Tell your husband.  Tell your sister.  Tell your mother, even if she isn't sure what "Liking" someone on Facebook means. For your efforts, all 30 of our Facebook fans will be entered into a random drawing for one of our lovely paper wreaths (a $21 retail value).

I love these wreaths ... (the bigger the better in my opinion!).  This particular wreath is approximately 9" in diameter.  You can hang it on its own or by a thick colored ribbon.  It can be propped against the back of a bookcase as an decorative accent.  Heck, you can even mount it on a colored canvas for an extra dimension against your wall.

So join in if you haven't already and get your chance to win this wreath.  If it doesn't fit your particular decor, then you can always gift it to someone! Share the post, share our Facebook page ... or just click here.

Who doesn't like showing some team spirit?

We here at Perfectly Creative love showing our team spirit.  Now, so that you won't totally hate me before you get to know me ... I'm going to hold off on telling you where our team loyalties lie!

I haven't always been the biggest fan of sports, but with time (and the love of my marriage) I've learned some things - like rivals.  Yankees & Red Sox.  Giants & Cowboys.  Celtics & Lakers.  You get my drift.

So tell me some of your team favorites - or the rivalry that you've got going on in your house.  The only sports rivalry going on in our house is whose favorite player on the same team is better!

Busy, busy, busy!

So the butterflies of "opening" are gone and I'm trying to figure out my own little systems of how and when to update things, list new items and manage everything else.  I felt like a computer programmer for the past couple of days!  HTML coding hasn't won yet!

I've figured out that I'm not a strict schedule person.  I have to "feel" like doing a task - or at least REALLY need to because a deadline is looming.  (Drives my husband nuts!)  Most times I'm good since I don't like to be idle - but there are days where lounging around sounds like a great idea.  Today I'm concentrating on house & home - the fun things like grocery shopping and cleaning, with just a little creating thrown in tonight.

What about you?  Any tips for someone who can't seem to block out time, but just melds it all together?

Here we go!

Welcome to the world of Perfectly Creative!

For as long as I can remember, I've always loved making things.  Whether it was the little DMC cross stitch patterns my grandmother would send away for or those "starter" projects we were taught in Home Ec. class, I have always enjoyed the process - and most especially the end result.  Heck, in high school some friends even nicknamed me Bevi-Crocker!

After years of making things for myself and family or friends and listening to their supportive accolades, I've decided to open up an Etsy shop and do some local craft fairs. Why don't you join me for the ride?

I'll be updating the blog with sneak peeks of creations in progress, and to let you know when the Etsy shop will be getting updated inventory and specials.
