The only thing I have on my Christmas list is for my children to be happy. It is going to be a slim Christmas so I am just hoping my children aren't dissappointed.
Have a great week!

Tote Bags made in the Homeschool Sewing Class that I taught this fall for our group. There were NINE girls in my class and boy, was it crazy at times. In the spring, we are doing 2 smaller classes. I think the girls will get so much more out of the class. But, even with that number, we were able to do 3 projects in 9 weeks. Not bad. (Photo above is of Charity's bag.)

This was taken in February after my grandmother's funeral. The quilt in the background is one that she had made in 1990. Probably one of the last quilts she ever made! My husband and 4 kids are all on the left. My dad and step-mother in the middle, and my siblings on the right. The only one missing is my mother.
I'm thankful for my grandparents. For the life they lived and shared with us. I'm thankful for that life, and that I know they are in Heaven with Jesus, rejoicing over no more pain and sickness!
Psalm 100:4 "Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name."
What are you thankful for?
Reminder: Holiday Gift Giveaway starts soon, Dec 1-5, watch for more details!

I think it’s going to be so much fun for everyone involved!
The giveaway theme is cash and gift cards/gift certificates. I am currently looking for companies who wish to sponsor my blog giveaway for this event with a Gift Certificate from their business. It’s up to you the amount and who can enter (US, Canada or worldwide).
How will this help your business? We are expecting this to be a high traffic event and the buzz is already building online about it. Your company will gain exposure and I am offering to do a company or product review, with links to your site and/or media sites, and pictures to give you more incentive to sponsor my blog giveaway! For donating a gift certificate/gift card of $50 and up, I will also add a Sidebar Button Ad through the end of January 2011! (You must provide me with the picture for the button.)
Please email me at email@example.com if you are interested in becoming a sponsor or if you have any questions. ~Thanks, Garilyn
