Let Me Tell You About Some Free Stuff and Fun Stuff!!

I will not make you search for the free stuff and the fun stuff--
Let's just go ahead and give this to you right now!!

First of all--
Here is where you can get a free download of images for crafting each day.  Lisa has Tentwostudios and GoMakeSomething.  She does this free daily download countdown every year--great images from a great person!!  This began on December 1st.  You can obtain all the pages which are already given out. 

Next is another daily gift from the Creating Keepsakes Blog.  They began on December 1st.  You can go back to the start and get in on things, although the give-away which was drawn from comments needed to have been gotten in on the day of the contest. 

The third is the crown jewel of all the Cristmas countdowns and give-aways.  It is the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas.  Each day he shows step-by-step instructions for some of the most incredible tags you can imagine.  Then 12 people are selected from the comments for each day to receive some wonderful goodies to play with!!!!  The response this year is over the top!!!!!  Around 3,000 comments each day!!!!!  Don't miss out on this one-- 


Now, on to other things.  My youngest son and his sweet girl friend came to visit today.  They brought their two 4-legged children.  Hunter is a huskie mix and Boog is a teacup yorkie.  We had a nice visit and I got to show them how well the pictures from their vacation printed out.  Now I can get the pictures all into a great little scrapbook for them.

Brandon and Josie

They had a great Florida vacation!!

We have always been Gulf Shores/Perdido Key/Orange Beach folks--but, the oil spill really messed with things this year.  The kids tried going there and ended up unable to even get near the water.  The smell of the oil was bad.  That was a little weekend thing, but it was a ruined trip because of the oil.  So the big vacation was taken on the Atlantic side of Florida.  They got to enjoy themselves much more there.  There is a difference with the color and texture of the sand and the temperature and nature of the water.  But, they were able to walk freely on the beaches and get into the water and enjoy themselves completely.  We are all hopeful that the Gulf will be back in shape next year.  We really missed it this year.

Hubby and all of our puppies are sleeping already.  I need to head that way myself.  I've got to go to Cullman tomorrow to see Kathy at Scrapin Kats.  Everything there is 50% off now.  I hate that she is closing the store.  But, I do understand completely.  The good part is that she will be able to go to crops and yard sales and all kinds of things with the rest of us now!! 

So glad you could come by!!!
