Handmade with Love & Rules Review and Giveaway **CLOSED**


Ok so this is my first giveaway-EVER. And I am soo nervous I want to cringe and hide in the corner over the idea of posting it out there on the World Wide Web. But being the BRAVE MILITARY wife...I am going to push forward and unveil it!!

First off I got this original idea from another blogger here, and while I did not copy her project verbatim I would like to give all original credit to this comrade in arms military wife blogger. I just took it and put my own spin on it. And I am of the firm belief that things handmade are things made with love and tenderness. So this unique piece is a one of a kind from the house of "The Dill-io". Here it is...


What is this fine piece of artwork you ask?? Well it is a list of rules that every family should follow displayed in a funky, yet visually pleasing sort of way!!

Official Review of the product: Well in my humble opinion, I THINK IT ROCKS!! And I have half a mind to keep it for myself. But I want to share with all my readers my handmade love soooo onto the FUN part!!

Sorry I forgot to include my email and I accidentally deleted my other comment which was this.

I love the giveaway for this one. I actually want one of those in my home or something close to it. My husband and I are going on to two months of being married but our first rule created itself. Communication is the key to everything. Sure its hard as hell to follow because we tend to block each other out. But in the end we always talk. We always find ourselves communicating all our problems. :D My email's crystalizeddestruction@gmail.com
