Better than an Academy Award....comes the LIEBSTER AWARD!

Liebster Award

 The rules of this award which were forwarded to me are:

The recipient will:

1. Pass along this award to five other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

2. Inform those bloggers individually, and they will inform you that they received it.

3. Once received the blogger shall place the Liebster award on their blog in a post along with the bloggers they will pass it on to.

Good Morning Ladies!!!!  Well and perhaps the occasional stitching man-friend!  I got a blog post today from BEA at PRUPERTGIRL.BLOGSPOT.COM and she awarded me the Liebster Award so let me begin my acceptance speech right now - hehehehehe - I am enjoying all of these new things that come along in the stitching world, and the really good news is that my oh-so-smart blogger sister has officially moved in with us after her move from Canada, and since she is the guru to how blogs work, she has offered to help me improve my l'il blog to something slicker and more important, prettier!  So stay tuned and sometime over Christmas new things will start to show up and comments are always welcome on how you like the changes.

Otherwise, there are only about 3 weeks left until the kids are off on vacation for Christmas, we are all gearing up for a visit from that Jolly Old Man in a Red Suit, I have a ton of great new design ideas for the coming year, I am getting things designed and stitched for release at Nashville Market in February, AND right now I am furiously stitching a Halloween design to submit to Just Cross Stitch Magazine for their 2013 Halloween Ornament Issue (deadline is Dec. 15) and then another one to stitch to submit for the Christmas Ornament Issue but I do believe I have until early January to submit that ornament design fully stitched - whew, all this work and so little time!

I hope you enjoy these blogs along with me!

Ho Ho Ho!

Have you all started your Christmas shopping now that Thanksgiving has gobbled by? Was anyone brave enough to shop on Black Friday? Macy's has a special Christmas bus tour going across the country to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation and Santa and 2 Elves hopped off the bus and were led into our local store by bagpipers - quite the scene - took our two little ones out to see it all and our 4 year old ended up on the news watching Santa read. "'twas the Night Before Christmas" - oh to be young again!
