Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone

We Have a Winner!

Congratulations to Amanda for winning the Free Cookie Giveaway! She will be receiving 6 Fabric Pattern Sampler Cookies from my Etsy store.

Thank you so much to everyone for entering! Come back next month for another Free Cookie Giveaway.

There's one day left to enter the Free Cookie Giveaway! Check back tomorrow to see if you've won.
