Holiday Gift Giveaway Blog Hop ~Sneak Peek #1

Our first sponsor for the Holiday Gift Giveaway Blog Hop is
I met Connie Needles just a couple months ago. She was a vendor at our recent Christmas Shopping Extravaganza. Connie is a very sweet lady and has great customer service. I had gotten a scent that my husband was allergic to. Connie gave me some samples to try to see what we liked and make sure that my husband was not allergic. I thought that was great service, especially since I had originally gotten the bar from someone else!
Below is the Gingerbread warmer, isn't it lovely and festive!

You can visit Connie's page here.
Connie is giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner.
More sneak peeks later today!
See you tomorrow for the first day of the Holiday Gift Giveaway Blog Hop.

Busy Time of the Year

We have been extremely busy around here lately, as most people are this time of year. Watch for some sneak peeks over the next couple days of the sponsors for the Holiday Blog Hop starting on Dec. 1st. I'm excited!!
Here's a few things we've been working on this fall:

Burp Clothes and Wash Clothes (not shown) will be a new item in our shop. We have been working on lots of other items, too! We set up for Black Friday and Saturday at the mall and had a great time!

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.)
Pattern by Whimsey Couture

I also did a pattern test for Whimsy Couture. I love the pattern. The only thing I'd do differently (which is just my personal preference) is to make the dress longer. I personally like long dresses. Note on photo: what a look! She's too young for looks like that!
Have a great week and check back for the sneak peeks!

Thankfulness...there are so many things to be thankful for. I will be posting (hopefully) daily, listing things that I am thankful for.

Today, I am thankful for family.

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!
