Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I got off so easy today, I only baked a small ham, fixed a couple dozen deviled eggs and we are providing  a pre-baked Sam's Club Pumpkin Pie and Cool Whip, a couple folding chairs, some bagged ice and some iced tea.  Whooo Hoo!!  And I get to spend time with family while not cooking.  How special is that!

Hope your Thanksgiving is as good to you!

BLOG CANDY!! @Christmastime....

***edited:  a winner was chosen!  Thanks to all who participated.

Hi everyone!
I'm setting up a new blog candy starting tonight,  here - and you are all welcome to enter.  It runs through until Christmas Eve when one of my son's will choose a winner.
I won last year a candy like this, and I so enjoyed it the whole year long.  I won it from Toni Sacrison from her 5InkyFingers blog, and the prize was a card a month from her for all of 2012!

What a great surprise awaited me this year.  Every month I received a surprise card - suitable for me to use if I chose, but never knowing exactly when it would come, if it would be just a general card or a theme for a holiday occurring during that month.  And I have to say, so far at least, I've kept them ALL for great inspiration!

      So, starting tonight, my blog candy to one winner will be this same idea:
a new card made by me and mailed to the winner every month in 2013.
If you would like to have candy like this, please just leave a comment and a clear way for me to contact you later if you should win so I can get your mailing address.  That's it.  No more hoops and no conditions for this one.  Will mail anywhere.  
I'll have one of my sons choose a winner when our family gathers on Christmas Eve.

Good Luck everyone!   I hope many of you would like to get this type of yearlong gift. 
I can assure you that I at least thoroughly enjoyed the surprises in the mail!  Special Thanks Toni!!

trying to get back into the routine....

Here are a few cards I've made recently.

I am entering them into the Oozak blog contest this month for their Winter Vibes.

 I've not been doing much, as I haven't been in the best of health for a while, and awaiting testing results.  Today my doc said I'm doing as well as expected, and in some ways even better, so I'm trying to get back into normal routines.  So maybe you'll be seeing a few more cards in the coming weeks!
