RAK Winner and More!

I just want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who posts such sweet things to me here on my blog. Seriously, it makes my day every single time I get a little message! Thanks for all the warm fuzzies! You gals are the best! MMmmmmmmmmWAH! ;)

And the winner of the Adornit Christmas Pattern Book is . . .

bruinbr! WOOHOO!

Email me your address at and I'll get your book sent out to you ASAP! :)

Today I took some pictures of the Cookie Sheet Christmas Countdown Calendars I'm giving my family this year. I think I'm safe posting this here because none of them even know I have a blog! LOL! I was going to give these to them at Thanksgiving, but . . . life took over and I didn't get them all done. Why does life seem to always do that?!

I did it a little different than the ones I've seen. I put the #'s on the actual cookie sheet instead of on the magnets. I knew my kids would want to choose their magnet instead of having to fish through them all to find the specific day. They came together pretty easily thanks to a bunch of charms I ordered from Oriental Trading and bags of buttons from Michael's. The other things I picked up here and there from For the title I used the Dollar Tree "Thickers" which helped keep the cost down. I'm hoping my siblings' families like them. :)

Here's one last picture for you. Today we went to check on the house and I realized that I haven't posted a picture of the progress for awhile. The framing is coming along nicely. It should be done by the end of the year. (Doesn't that sound funny to say? I mean, I know it's December, but it never sinks in that it's the end of the year, too!) Poor framers . . . working in the snow. They are troopers!

Well, that's it for tonight! Talk to you in a few days! :)
