My Christmas Giveaway!

Holiday Greetings!
As many of you know, this has been a particularly difficult year for my family.  Although I still have moments of deep sorrow, I know that God is near and holding us tight.  I also know that the twins are in Jesus's arms, safe and sound.  In that I find comfort.  So in honor of Emma and Myla, I am having a giveaway for Christmas and I invite you to enter.  My only request is that you already be a follower or become one.  Please let me know how you chose to follow my blog, through Google Friend or Linky Followers.  I don't know how to track email followers. (If there is a way, someone show me Please!!)  I so cherish the friendships I have made through blogging and always appreciate your sweet comments.  
The prizes are two bottle brush trees, hand~decorated by me.  I will have a few more goodies included, but haven't decided what yet.  All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post, with email address if yours doesn't show, so I can contact you.  I will appreciate you sharing this giveaway with others, but it isn't mandatory.  I will draw a name on December 10th. 

Thank you so much to all my followers.  I can't express how humbled I am that you would take the time to pop in to my little blog.  Have a wonderful week, everyone!

New Bottle Brush Trees in my Etsy Shop!

I'm gonna make this short but sweet!  I just listed a new selection of bottle brush trees on Etsy.  I also have a box of vintage ornaments available.  Here's some pics!

Don't forget I am having a giveaway announced soon for the holiday season.  I will share details on Monday, November 26th. What kind of things do you like to have a chance to win?  There are so many possibilities!  I really appreciate my followers, new and old...not old in the age sense!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and God Bless you and your family.

My New Trees on the work table...in Etsy soon!

Hello my sweet bloggy friends!  I have been busy getting some new bottle brush trees ready for my Etsy Shop.  I am always walking around with glitter on my face, etc, etc... Does anyone else have that "problem"??  It must be my sparkling personality!  I wanted to get more done by now but too many things going on in my life this year and so I will let it go... Whatever gets done, gets done...whatever doesn't, doesn't!  There is always next year to get all the things whirling in my head made, right?  Hmmmm, I think I say that every year!  Are there ever enough hours in a day?
 So here's my work table covered with finished trees all ready for photographing.  It is hard to get good photos inside, but these give you an idea.  The weather has been dreary & dark, so hoping tomorrow will have a little more sun to get some pics done outside so I can get them listed; then these glittery goodies will be available. 
 I will post when I get them in my Etsy shop, hopefully in a couple of days.  I am still getting some little trees done.  In the meantime, hope you are enjoying the joys of the season, maybe a craft show or two.

150th Post & Bottle Brush Trees on Etsy...

I have been so busy with work & family life that it has been a long time coming, but this is my 150th post.  I'm planning a giveaway soon for the holiday season, but need to get some photos taken of my gift choices.  But for now, take a peek at my Etsy shop.  I have the shop on my sidebar.  Have a wonderful week everyone & thank you for your patience with me.  It has been a tough (albeit awful sometimes) year for me & my family.  One Day at a Time...
