Hello Friends, It's been a long time since I last posted and I do apologize for the delay. Did you ever hear the old saying "when it rains it pours"? Well that's how it's been around here! Never a dull moment. Every time I thought I would have a chance to sit and post, something else would come up and I would have to put off posting once again....But, I'm back and hopefully I can get back into the groove of things here. I have so much to share with everyone. Back in Dec. I won a giveaway Sandy was having from http://oldecountrycupboard.blogspot.com/. I received my goodies on Christmas Eve. in the mail...now how awesome is that? What a wonderful Christmas present! Her melts are to die for, they smell so yummy and the scent last such a long time. She sent me a ton of the melts along with a wonderful feather tree, that she made herself. To top things off, Sandy even let everyone who entered her giveaway pick a free pattern of choice as away of saying "Thank You" and a special present to us all! She is such a sweetheart and very generous and giving! Thank You again, Sandy! If you have not stopped by her blog, you need to do so! She has so many wonderful patterns to choose from and is an inspiration for us all with all the things she makes and creates.
Then Back on January 1st. 2011,Cindy from http://thimbleprimsstudio.blogspot.com/ posted that I was the "Lucky Winner" in a giveaway she was having on her blog for a pair of Bethany Lowe Party Mice...."Oh MY GOSH" was I surprised to see my name posted on her blog as the winner! I was so excited, when I first laid eyes on those mice, I instantly fell in love with them and was really praying I could win them.... I could not believe my eyes when I saw that my name was picked and I was the winner!! Yahoo!! But, that is not the best part of this story as when I received my package in the mail, it was wrapped in beautiful Raggedy Anne and Andy paper. When I opened the box, there was beautiful curls of pastel ribbon laying on top (Dang, I sure wish I would have thought to take pictures as I was opening...but I was so excited, I forgot everything) after the ribbon,were my new beautiful mice all wrapped in tissue and a note from Cindy sending me congrats and telling me to look in the bottom of the box. To my surprise, there was 4 different patterns for dolls and a bunny on the bottom of the box. What a wonderful surprise and a very generous gift. It was like receiving a small party in a box!! When you have a few free moments, you should stop by her blog and say hi. She makes wonderful art dolls and is in the process of renovating and moving into a new home, and could use all our prayers and support.
One more giveaway winnings I would like to share with you is from Tina, fromhttp://www.tatteredsisters.com/ I received my goodie box last week and you just have to see all what was in the box. There were a bag of melts,bag of fixins,a bag of wax dipped wooden spools(I love these by the way), a pip berry candle ring, and awesome bar of grubby soap(that smells so good!), a pack of note cards,a olde' crow cookie cutter,and a cute little roosters sitting on a nest statue....whewww can you believe all that she sent me! Thank You SOoooo much Tina, I love it all! I also love her blog, she is always posting great tutorials that you need to check out. Shes a newbie as myself and I am sure she would love for you to stop by and say hi.
I have been so blessed lately, not only with winning giveaways, but with meeting and making new friends along the way. I think that is my most favorite part about blogging. Whoever thought years ago, that one could sit home in there PJ's and meet and make new friends from all over the world without ever leaving our homes?
I know this post has been super long, please forgive me. But, I really wanted to give credit that has been long over do to Sandy, and Cindy and share with you all my beautiful gifts that I have received from everyone.

I am also thinking of having an Easter Giveaway.......so stay tuned for more details to come. Take Care My Friends....Until next time.......Hugsssss Mary
