I'VE A NEW RAK WINNER, AND A PROJECT TO SHARE!!!

Hello, everyone!!!  Well, I'm back to announce another winner and I also have a little belated Christmas present project to share.

The number Random.org selected for the vellum/paper set was #8:


Congratulations to "Love My Paper"!!!  You are the winner of the blog rak.  You will have until the end of the day Friday to contact me with your mailing information to audreyfrel@sbcglobal.net.  Thank you all for your wonderful comments!!!  And keep checking because I have another small rak coming up very soon now again!!!

Now for my project.  As I mentioned I wasn't afforded the time this year to get any shopping done in time for Christmas and I promised my family I'd have presents for them before our  New Year's Eve celebration.  I have managed a few purchases but I've also enjoyed making a few presents also.  I'd like to share with you a quick and easy charm bracelet I just finished for my little neice:


She's 13 years old and that's such a difficult age to make a handmade gift decision for, but I'm hoping she'll like this!

Congrats again to my winner!

I'm off to play now, so I love you all, hugs...

I'll be seeing you!

Love this charm bracelet Audrey! I can't think of a single 13 yo I know that would not adore it! Both of my girls would love it and they are 14 and 17 :) Congrats to your winner of the vellum papers! Have a lovely evening dear.

Well, she is going to love this bracelet! My girl friends make a lot of jewelry but I have never joined in the fun. I've gone to the jewelry parties, but I can never decide what to make so I end up watching everyone else. It's so much fun!

Great job! I think this is a wonderful gift.
Gotta go tuck the kids in, talk to you soon!

Do I not just LOVE YOU. I have been MIA for some time now. But in the New Year I will be back. Thanks for the loving words and as all ways the prayers. We made up our minds no to New York for now. God is doing something else here. If anything close to you would make me happy. LOL

I am redoing the blog and some of the ideas on there and maybe opening up a store. And yes still in school and working also. I thank God for you and my bloggers peeps, just seeing what you are doing is what keeps me going. Until next time God bless have a AWESOME New Year and you are in my prayers
