A Birthday and a Giveaway (closed)

Here it is since my birthday is in Oct I thought I'd do a giveaway. I'm giving my small serving tray I made with a tea cup, tea, some of my fancy sugar, and some extra stuff I'm putting in that I crocheted.

Here are my rules: Leave a comment on this post everyone gets one, You don't have to be a follower but it would be nice, I will need to be able to get in touch with you if you win, and all are welcome to join. I will draw a winner on the 12 of Nov. so that way I can get it out to you before Thanksgiving. Good luck.

Tea Time

Well I finally got my serving trays done. This is a fun way to reuse those old cookie sheets you would throw out. All you have to do is sand off any rust and the coating, paint with primer then spray paint any color you want. I also used my cricut and mod podge and of course glitter to decorate the way I wanted then I sprayed a coat to seal it. I think for my next cookie sheet I'm going to chalk board it and hang it up. I think they came out great. I'm going to be giving away the smaller one in a give away I'm having in the next few days so stay tuned.

Cable

We have pretty much always had cable or at least access to the regular TV station. For the past few months I have been thinking about having our cable cut off most of the shows we watch we own or want to buy (they are on our list). We have figured it out that with the money we would spent on cable we can get all the shows we want, and I did some looking on line and alot of stations steam live on the net for free so we will still get out news. I'm going to get a cable so I can hook up my lap top to the TV so I can watch news on a bigger screen. After all the research I've done about living without cable I can't believe I didn't do this sooner. The money we could have saved. So as you may have guessed we no longer have cable. The real funny thing when I called to have it shut off the cable company tried to keep me an acted like there was something wrong with me no longer wanting cable.
Another reason I wanted to get rid of cable is as I get older I'm finding that it's to big of a distraction. There is so much more I want to do and learn and it just seems foolish for us to pay so money for the few shows or movies we would watch, not when you can buy them for alot cheaper. I truly am looking forward to life without cable. Imagine what I will create or learn.

If anyone out there is living a life without cable or TV I'd love to hear from you. I want to hear your pro's and con's. How has it changed your family?
