Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

Sunday, May 1, 2011


Good Sunday morning everyone!!!  I do hope you are all well.

I'm doing well, but still trying to get through this family ordeal and I'm so very tired, so please excuse me if I don't sound as "lively" as I normally do.

I invited all my followers back today to offer a blog package in appreciation of your just thinking enough of me, and my crafts, to follow me.  I am so very honored to call you all my family-friends and on occasion I just like to show in some small but special way that I don't take you for granted.

Today, I'm going to show you the first of several blog candy packages I've prepared for you and this is just the start --over this week, watch it grow:

I will add to this package on Wednesday, May 4, and again on Saturday, May 7.  You can return here on both days to check out what's been added.  I will also include a surprise RAK which will not be shown but will, however, be included in your package when it is sent out to the lucky recipient!

The winning recipient will be selected by Random.org and will be announced/posted on Monday, May 9.

To be eligible, comments must be left on the blog candy rak posts only.  All the comments will be combined and calculated from the three (3) RAK posts only.  This post being the first.
At this time, this RAK is for current followers only as my way of saying "thank you" for openly supporting me and encouraging me; and for being a part of my Cute and Some family.

Please know I will have a small RAK for All Visitors which will include non-followers (e.i. anyone who leaves a post for the RAK)  who'd like to participate and I will post that information after this RAK has been won.  I want everyone to know I appreciate your just taking the time to stop by.  So everyone, be on the look-out for that.

Well, I'm off to church now.  I'll try to come back later to check in on as many of you as I can.  In the meantime...

I'll be seeing you

Hi Audrey!

This is so nice of you to be so thoughtful, even as you are helping care for a relative. What a wonderful lady you are!

I know myself I haven't felt real lively this last week and I think a lot of it has to do with the sun refusing to shine in Minnesota. Has the sun been shining in Chicago much? Well, now that May is here let's hope it shines a lot! I hope you have a nice relaxed Sunday Audrey, take care!

You are so generous Audrey... I hope your family ordeal is over soon my friend... I have been trying so hard to stay home myself so I can get my house in order.. but it never fails I have to go somewhere for someone.. lol.. I did manage to get the kitchen cleaned up yesterday and I have been working on the front room since I got home from church this morning.. but had to take a break to pop over to tell you you I am praying for you. Hoping to get it (the house) somewhat cleaned up today and tomorrow, Tuesday I take Alex to Santa Rosa for his allergy shots, then Wednesday it's back to Santa Rosa again, then on Friday Everett and I will go to Napa to see Aunt Eloise... there is no end to the cleaning... but so hoping I can get on top of it today (and tomorrow)... of course it will be a mess by Thursday and I will be too tired to do anything... lol... Well my friend... seems like I just ramble on and on these days... I hope you are having a restful Sunday... hugs

Hi there! Sorry I have not visited in a while. Things are a little crazy here in Alabama since the tornadoes rolled through. Just when I think I have heard the worst, something else surfaces.

Now on to this post. Audrey, you are way too generous. This is an amazing give away. Who ever wins will be very lucky! I hope it is me!!!!!!!
Love you, and look forward to your Sassy post tomorrow.
