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.

Hello, family-friends!!!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!!!  I thought of you over the last several days and included you all in my "things I'm thankful for" holiday prayers because you've all been a blessing to me -- more than I can tell you.  I look forward to our next years together!

I had a wonderful time with our families and got to meet a few new ones!!!  Being I was actually not at home, I do hope you've already forgiven me for not being here Saturday to announce the mini cookbook winner as I initially thought I would have had the time to sneak back here for a brief visit to do; unfortunately, the time got lost and I thank you for waiting.

Now to get that out of way...  the winning number selected by Random.org for the mini cookbook is:

The 18th commentor for the post is NICOLE!!!  Congratulations, Nicole!!!  You own the mini cookbook.  Please email me at audreyfrel@sbcglobal.net your mailing address!!!  I hope you enjoy your book!!!

I wish I had a project to share with you today, unfortunately, I haven't done any crafting since our holiday celebration began.  As everything is only now beginning to wind down, it may be another day or so before I can get started, but I'll be running in and out to see what you've been up to -- I can't wait to see all your wonderful projects I've missed!!

Hugs, love you all...

I'll be seeing you!!!

Take care, rest up and enjoy blogging!

Hi Audrey!

I hope you are doing well and enjoying the wonderful Christmas season! I've been thinking of you and wanted to stop over and say hello! Did you stop over last week and see the beautiful card I was able to make with that lovley kit you sent? I am so happy how it turned out and I gave you a big shout out! ;)

I'm doing a cartridge giveaway that is kind of on the "down low" and I hope you can get entered. Also, I wanted to ask you if you could send some prayers with me for our friend Pam at craftycards4u. She had to have a medical proceedure and is in need of some of our knee mails. Have a nice Sunday my friend! ;)
