Card Winners....

I'm working on a different computer so I can't share any photos(like the 50th Anniversary quilt or my front porch) but I can tell you the winners of the the Shutterfly card giveaway....

CONGRATS to Gayle, Karen, and Vanessa!!!! Email me and I will email you back the codes.

I'm looking forward to this snowstorm so I can get our Christmas card pictures done :) and I just plain LIKE snow :)

Life is still busy and hectic and in turmoil and limboland, but I'm slowly cleaning and simplifying the house(starting with our closets). I wanted to have a massive yard sale next weekend, but that isn't likely anymore as there is just no way I will be ready for it. So it may have to wait until Spring. I was thinking about making a selling blog to let go of some of my prim and vintage items, but I hate dealing with the shipping thing, but then again, I may go ahead and do it. I'm so wishy washy lately, I just want my life back to normal.

Have great weekend,

Shutterfly 2011 Holiday Card GiveAway!!

Do you use Shutterfly? If you don't, you should! You can customize greeting cards, labels, hang tags, mugs, key chains, magnets, and so much more . I used them last year to make our Christmas cards(as seen above) and present hang tags. The quality of the cards is superb and all your creations come in their own box for easy storage and to keep them protected. Plus there are so many creative designs to choose from, all you have to do is pick what picture(s) you want to use and the rest is easy peasy. Create professional quality cards in just minutes!

Worried about getting the perfect group shot? No stress, there are plenty of cards that let you choose multiple photos so that you can get that "just right" picture of each person in your family on the card. That's what I did with mine. Trying to get 7 kids to look just so for a picture, I was exhausted! So I just went with individual ones and I loved the result.

So make your own one of a kind Holiday cards this year with Shutterfly!!! You won't be disappointed. And to add some sweetness to all this.. If you are a blogger, and want a chance to get 25 free cards this holiday season, register here....

And for my readers, leave a comment with this post and I will draw THREE winners who will each receive a code for 25 FREE holiday cards generously donated by Shutterfly!!!!

I can't wait to get started on my Christmas cards this year, enjoy making yours!!

Have a most lovely and creative day,

Giveaway Winner....

Where to start? First, an apology, I'm sorry for taking months(totally unbelievable) to post a winner and for not blogging for so long. Why? you ask. It started with just being super busy with the beginning of the school year(homeschooling and public schooling is more work than I thought it would be), then my old laptop started to misbehave and fall apart at my fingertips, it's hard to write a full post without a space bar! Yes, I could have used hubby's computer, but all my stuff and photos are on mine, lame excuse I know. Then as time passed, more things kept me busy and I just could not bring myself to even look at my blog or anyone else's for that matter. Kind of out of sight out of mind thing.
And for the last month I have been under the most stress I have ever been in my entire life. I can't go into details at this point in time, but it's not health related, we are all for the most part healthy, thank the Lord. Let's just say, there are going to some major changes happening in the next year and none of it will be easy but hopefully in the end we will all be better off and our stress level will at a more manageble level.
And along when the above stress hit home, we lost one of the bunnies, Honey, and some other minor little nightmare hit our house, so it's been a miserable few weeks. BUT, I think I can see a speck of light at the end of the tunnel, I just have too walk, crawl, drag myself a few miles to get to it.

Now for the winner of my giveaway, it's Lynn !! Congratulations! Email me with your address and I will get your package out to you.

I have a very cool Shutterfly giveaway to share with you all, so if you come back tomorrow(I'm not joking) you can see what it is.

Thank you all for your patience with me and for the emails you sent, I'm sorry for not responding sooner. All prayers of strength, peace, and guidance would be so very greatly appreciated.

With love,
