Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year

Silent Night, Holy Night
It is Christmas Eve and it is time to wish you a Merry Christmas.  I hope that you are having a lovely holiday season.

Thanks to everyone who entered the Gingher Shears giveaway.  Some of you left some truly funny comments and I hope that you have better luck keeping your fabric shears away from your husband/boyfriend/children/siblings.  Thanks also to those who left me kind comments -- so glad that you enjoy the blog!

So here is a Christmas present for one lucky reader:
the winner of the Gingher shears is commenter number 60, 
Elizabeth Guerrero!

I will also update the Christmas Shadowbox Tutorial in the next couple of weeks to show you how I made the tiny nativity above.

I also would like to take a moment to thank those of you who reached out to me via email in the last couple of weeks.  We've had some ill family members; one of them was seriously ill but is doing well now.   Other surprises cropped up too, making this an incredibly stressful month.  So I will be taking a couple of weeks off from the blog and will be back on January 9th. 

Nevertheless, all of the beautiful moments of this season are a time for peace and love and joy.  A time for goodwill.  A time to be with family and friends.  I wish you and yours the most blessed and peaceful holiday season, and a wonderful New Year!

  6. Dear Colette, I wanted to pop by and say hello. I've been thinking of you. Wishing you and your family a magical 2012. I've been taking a bit of a break from my computer to catch up with myself and it's doing me the power of good. I've been catching up on my blog reading and commenting. Sending you love, hugs, glitter and smiles across the miles, Em xxxx
