Rainbow Springs and a Giveaway

Last weekend we took a road trip to Ocala to visit my brother and go to Rainbow Springs.I was really beautiful.It had waterfalls and crystal clear water...

...there was a swimming area and we later rented Kayaks and enjoyed the day.


...On the way out Hubby found this HUGE bug...eeeek...I don't like bugs this big, but I mustered up the nerve to take a picture...I'm getting the eebbie jeebbies just thinking about it.


Before I run off I'm offering a new Giveaway.The last couple of Giveaways I have offered something I created.This time I'm offering some doo dads from my stash. Inspired by some of the other bloggers that offer a sampling of their stash, I decided to give it a try.
This sampling includes a vintage Bingo card,some rusties,some Ice Resin findings from the Industrial Chic line,some I.R molds created by me,some metal findings and more.
If you are interested in this Giveaway,just leave a comment and I will announce the winner July 20th.


Have a wonderful day friends.xo


As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

I love Rainbow Springs! I have an Aunt who has a house along the river and I grew up tubing those beautiful waters. I think it is a great kept secret in Florida.
I have been meaning to ask, do you ever teach locally (and by locally I mean pretty much anywhere in Florida)? I would love to take a class!

Hey Cat, that's a great give away. I see all the things you use to make jewelry with and my brain goes WOW.

I have a ton of stuff like that I should give away or send you. LOL

Isn't the Ocala area nice? Jim and I have always thought that particular part of Florida would be extremely livable...however, if those kind of scary looking bugs come from there...forgetaboutit!!!
That's quite an interesting hodgepodge of workable goodies to create with in your giveaway.
Hope all is well...scary bugs and all!

Cynthia said...

Wow, I got goosebumps - good ones when I was the giveaway, and yukky ones when I was that bug!!!Yikes!! Wow! I guess that the downside to living in Florida - huge bugs!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Cat, thanks for sharing pictures of the spring - it's certainly like nothing we have around here!! It looks huge! I know the kids had a blast there. And the bug ....I've never seen anything like it! Speaking of bugs, esterday on the beach my 3-year old son saved a "lady bug" but it was striped!
Thanks for the giveaway - what a very cool stash you are offering!

Dodads! Dodads! Who just doesn't love a bunch of Dodads to play with!!!! I could really put these dodads to good use with my Ice resin. Thanks for the chance to win them!
