Celebrating Good NEWS and A GIVEAWAY!!!

I have so much to be thankful for right now!

I've got my date for my induction!  The 17th!   My mom is flying in, my oldest are coming home from college to help out with the little kids and for the holidays, and everything has gone GREAT with this pregnancy!  Even though I am AMA!  (advanced maternal age!)  YIKES! Doesn't that just sound horrible?

Also, I am celebrating YOU my blog followers that give me so much encouragement and support.  I just love reading your comments!  Sometimes they are so funny I find myself LOL!  LITERALLY!!

I just can't believe how many of you there are!  199 blog followers, only 1 away for 200!!!! and over 100 email subcribers!

So in celebration and as a BIG 'OLE thank YOU I am having a GIVEAWAY!

Most of my giveaways are open for anyone, but this time because I am celebrating my followers I am asking in order to be included in the drawing you need to be a follower, either a blog follower or email subscriber.   Then leave a comment on THIS post!


I am planning on picking and posting the winner on Saturday from the hospital but it might be Sunday!  ; )

So sorry, because of the size of the box I can only ship this to US, Canada, and APO addresses.


Thanks again for all your support and checking in today!

Have a great crafting day!
