We Have a Winner and I received 2 awards!!

We have a winner!!! Thank you all for entering for the Christmas tree frame. I wish you all could have won, but then I would have had to make ALOT of frames and I would be broke!! LOL. I will have more drawings on down the road. I put all of your names in a bag and gave it a good shake, then Chase drew the winner!


It's Miss Janice from Etiquette with Miss Janice.



The drawing was done fair and square..... one draw, one time. Congratulations Miss Janice! E-mail me your address and I will ship it right out.


I know I said my text would be underneath, but I'm still trying to figure all of this out, please bear with me. LOL! Also, I listed a few more Christmas frames in my Etsy store if you would like to take a look.


Now for my awards.......


I received this Christmas spirit award today from Melissa at http://melissasheartandhome.blogspot.com/

Kristen, your son is such a little cutie, and, just as I was looking at how cute he was and thinking he should have drawn my name, I get to the end of your post, and you've given me an award! How very nice of you. Thank you so much. When I was reading your Christmas list, I thought to myself, "it's a good thing she likes decorating for Christmas, cause she sure can do it". laurie
