ME Monday.....

Something New For Mondays...

My new friend, Genie, from over at "Buttons for Baga" has sent me  a Mary Engelbreit Challenge.  Ha...Ha...Ha..Ha... Foolish Woman! She already has conceded that I will win..lol!
I have decided to create "ME Mondays" here on my blog to share so that anyone who loves ME as much as we do can participate. It's easy to join in...starting Sunday night after 8 p.m. EST you'll be able to post your link to your blog with the related Mary Engelbreit pictures to share with everyone.  Have patience with me as this will be my first attempt at "Linky tools."
For our first ME Monday I put out the challenge to post a picture of what you think is your most unique ME item.  It can be a ME licensed product or something that was "inspired" by Mary Engelbreit's artwork.  It must be a photo that you took of something that you own.  They don't have to be magazine quality photos, either. We realize everyone is busy.
Along with this new ME Monday, I have launched the second page of my blog  "What..Where..Why..Is Cherry Chick Jewelry" On this new page I will be sharing information about the jewelry that I design and sell. I'm offering a "Giveaway" over there, too, so make sure you click over and enter the giveaway.

Mary Englebreit Sewing Needles


I think this is a pretty interesting ME item. I bought these years ago at JoAnn Fabrics. They had several designs of cards with a little sewing needle kit inside. Has anyone every seen these before??

  6. O.K. Comment #3 ought to do it....I guess I needed to put where your first job was here in the comment box. You were at the Picket Post and you got to do all kinds of neat things with fiber and beads and take super trips to NYC. Working with looms is the neatest as I am a spinner, too. You were one lucky gal. Hugs to you again for the third time....Genie

    I have more than one design of the needle cards. I also have 2 of the metal sewing boxes. I have find a lot of things at Michael's. I have collected Mary things for 15 years now. My favorite thing is my necklace I made out of my ME credit card.

  19. How fun!! I missed out on this because my internet was down for a few days. Deep frustration!!

    But yes, I have seen them and have several of the different needle packs by Mary. However, I am a seamstress, so I suppose that is to be expected. Are you planning on doing this every Monday? I hope so!! Fun fun fun!!

  20. Hi Goosegirl,
    Thanks so much for stopping by. Yes! I will continue to have ME Mondays each Monday. I'm sure there are still millions of Mary Engelbreit products to share.
    We hope to see you next Monday with your pics.

  21. No, I've never seen these before. I would have definitely picked up one of these because I've got a little collection of sewing items. I'll be on the search for one of these. Thanks for sharing. ~ Sarah
