Another giveaway!!

I am losing all concept of what day it is. In fact the days are starting to run together, but that happens when your hanging out with a super cutie at 1 am (and 3 am and 5 am, etc, etc). I didn't realize until I turned on the news today that its September 11th.

Now the day is called Patriot day and in honor of our patriots I'm doing another star giveaway.



I have another beautifully stitched, quilted, and framed service star. Again for those of you who aren't familiar with the DoD service star you can get some info here.


I would type it all out in a lovely story for you but if I'm late picking up my little one from his first day of pre-k he'll be in therapy for years.


Anyways, this star is beautiful and of course, handmade by my momma because well, I might be wordy but sewing talented I am not. And I know my limitations.


It's in a beautiful five pointed blue star surrounded by the traditional red border in a very lovely 15 x21 inch frame. And don't worry, shipping is on me. Or rather on flyboy. But he's cool about this blogging giveaway stuff. I'm so lucky to have him.


Back to the giveaway. As always rules are simple, because well I can't handle complicated right now.

To enter just leave a comment.

For a second entry blog about this on your blog. I'd really like to get the word out there to as many military moms and military wives as possible.

For a third entry put a tweet out there that the mrs. is having an awesome military giveaway!
And like last time leave a comment per entry that made it so much easier.

The giveaway will be open until Friday September 18th at noon. good luck!

  42. Linked here from somewhere else, and I must say that is a beautiful service star. We recently moved to a small civilian community and one of my new neighbors asked my 11-year-old daughter what that star in our window meant. I was so proud of her when I heard that she did know and how proud she was to tell our neighbor about her dad.
