SSCS Opened-Thank You Laila

SSCS Opened-Thank You Laila

My SSCS gift could finally get opened and I let the grand babies open it on Christmas eve when we exchange our gifts. They were so excited and I tried to explain it was all the way from Norway, but I don't think they understood.

This is the first picture, little sister is saying, this one is empty, big sister has already taken the package out.

Uh oh, might be a little bit of trouble.

Little sis took off and big sis finishes it up. Look at those eyes she just got through telling little sis to come on we can both open it.

Thank you again Laila ( She made the bag that May Britt designed and it is so cute. This is so special knowing that Laila made this and I already know the project that it will hold. Fabric, thimble and a charm were also included. The thimble will have a special place on a shelf. Mom collected thimbles and I have it on my wall.

I loved doing this swap and I want to thank Donna again for hosting it. I know Maree ( received hers and this is what I sent across the big ocean. It really gives us an opportunity to meet people from all Countries.

More Christmas Decorating!!!

More Christmas Decorating

My tomorrow turned out longer than I thought, sorry, but I've been a little busy. I just can't seem to get anything finished.
This is how it looked before Christmas. All my treasures and pictures that I cherish.

This little elf is holding a box of strawberry's, I've had him a long time.

This is a little tree I put my sparkles on, old pins, faux pearl beads and earrings.

Now just a few pictures of our snow the other day. It is going to be in the 70's tomorrow. Everyone really enjoyed this unusual weather.

Don't forget about the magazine giveaway I have below. 6 New Romantic Homes Magazines, drawing after Christmas.

Yea, I got started on decorating!

Yea, I got started on decorating!

First I have to tell you, I'm not finished at all. Just thought I would share a little bit of my decorating for Christmas. I love this time of year and wish, as always, I would have gotten an earlier start.

Santa is complaining he has nothing to hang on with and what am I going to do about it. Told him right off who was running the show around here and he better be good.

I kinda felt sorry for him all alone, so I gave him something to hang on with and he is getting a little bit happier.

He got really happy when I hung a lot of his pals around, just look at that face.

Completed, but I do need to hang something behind the tree besides those pictures.
Christmas Past Memories...
The table has my pictures of the grand babies with Santa and Mom with Santa.

The elves below the tree better help me with the mantle, I'll show it tomorrow.

UPDATE: I'm in Southeast Texas and it's SNOWING!!!

Christmas Spirit Giveaway - Please read post

Christmas Spirit Giveaway
Please read post

OK girls and guys, you have to read this whole post to be able to understand what I’m trying to do. “Promise” I want to spread the true meaning of Christmas, celebrating Jesus Birthday, after all “Jesus is the reason for the Season” I am having a giveaway with what I feel is the talent that God has given me. We all have talent that He has given us. Since I have been on Blogland, I have met so many creative people. It may be sewing, photography, writing, knitting, crocheting, quilting, mosaic, painting, mixed media artist, cooking or taking something from old and giving it new life. I know there are many more, but you get the picture. I am posting a little girls dress I made and you can leave me a post to get your name in, but here is the TWIST. The dress is for the winner and then he or she will turn and give it to a little one that may not have a new dress for the Christmas Holiday's. A family that might have lost their income or is in crises with the economy the way it is at this time. Maybe a family that has lost their house from the fires in California or the storms down South.

My daughter said ‘Mom, why don’t you just give it to a little girl”. This is my thought; maybe this can be spread through Blogland. Now I know that it is the busiest time of the year and believe you me, I had to hustle when I thought about this. If you are having a hard time and enter then this is for you. I would love to see you keep it or even a family member that you would love to give something to and you don't have the funds.

Now you don't have to do this, but my wish is for you to take just a little bit of time and have a giveaway but have it where someone who really needs it can win it. I will be glad to tell people about your giveaway. I am sorry that we only have time to do it in the States, so I can ship it to the winner in time for Christmas. Girls, you that are across our big Oceans, up North and South, can do this in your Country. Let’s get started and spread the Christmas Spirit. If you want to use the card for a logo, just click on it and save.

The reason for a little girls outfit. We just found out our 3rd grandbaby is a girl. That will be our 3rd girl. We couldn't be happier.

I hope I have made since. Drawing will be on December 10th. I think that will give it enough time to arrive.
Merry Christmas,

I'm trying to HURRY-What is it going to be??-Giveaway with a Twist!

Big News Tomorrow!

Big News Tomorrow!!!

Giveaway with a TWIST

Hopefully by tomorrow evening I will have all the news about the giveaway posted. Please come back by and I think this one will make you feel the Christmas Spirit.

Quick Idea for a Little Girl

Quick Idea for a Little Girl

I've sold these and they go over well when a little girl has a hunter for a Daddy. I know I've been showing a lot of ideas with embroidery machines at this time, but I can turn those items out faster. I'll get back to my quilting and other projects after the show. This is just the sweat shirts and pants you can buy anywhere, I also have put it on pj's. Then I add a trim and embroidery on the shirt. I only have one complete outfit. Mainly sale the shirt by itself. So if you have a little want-a-be like daddy, you could embroidery anything.
