Hello, everyone!!!  And, happy holiday season to you all!!!  I've missed you so very muuch!

I've finally got through all my orders.  Actually, I was done on Sunday, but I spent this week getting my house back in order and preparing for the holiday with my family.  Of course, I had to get out here this week and sort through "last minute" items to find decent gifts but I managed to get everyone taken care of.  My only regret is that I didn't get the opportunity to get cards completed and out like I'd wanted to.

This was a very hectic month for me, I took on more than I could actually handle, and ran into all sorts of difficulties -- I'm so glad this is over, and I don't think I'll do it again next year.  My hubby commented that for all the soap taken out of this house, not one bar would have my name on it.  He's right!  I make it, he cuts it, we plastic wrap it, and then it all goes out to get packaged with someone else's name on it.  But,...  as my nephew says "dems the breaks"!!!  LOL!

I am so happy to be able to get back to blogging and look so forward to visiting and seeing what you've all been up to!!!

In the meantime, I have the winning draws for the resin pendants:

In the order of comments, these numbers correspond to:  Barb of Barbs Boys and
Terry Oulboub.  Congratulations, ladies!

Please email me the information for your resin pendants at:  audreyfrel@sbcglobal.net

I am still waiting for emails from:  Wendy of Kingston Kreations, Amber of Staying Crafty, and BridgetL.  I need your photo or desired wording by December 30.  Please make certain to get it to me.

Well I'm off to do some "little" last minute things before tomorrow but I'll be to visit for a while!  I'll be back next week to do all my catching up on all I've missed.

I'd like to say thank you to those of you who sent me cards and who so faithfully commented, visited, and kept up with me these past few weeks.  I so very much appreciated it!  Of all I was doing, I did not feel forgotten and neglected, eventhough I couldn't get back to you; that means so very much to me!

Now before I get out of here, please remember to comment for your resin pendants for the drawing on Friday, December 31; good luck!!!

Have a wonderfully Merry Christmas and you'll all be with me in my thought, prayers, and throughout my holiday.

Love ya!

I'm so happy you are back!!!! Kick back, relax and catch up on everyone's blog.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!!! I woke up around 7am and could see snow out the bedroom window. I HAD to wake up my husband to tell him, it was a White Christmas!!!!! Since we live in the South, this is a rare occasion. It was awesome. The kids woke up shortly after...they thought it was great!!! It kept snowing all morning. As the kids opened presents, we all enjoyed seeing the snow fall. The white landscape reminds me of the purity of Jesus. How appropriate for the celebration of his birth today??? Peace to you...Merry Christmas!!!
