God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

My 200th Post

This is my 200th post!  I wish I had something monumental to say   : )   I began this blog just this past May.  I've noticed that some people have had their blogs for way longer than that but they aren't anywhere near 200 posts.  This tells me I talk way too much ... but then we all know that   : )  

After yesterday's continual aggravation with insurance company paperwork which literally lasted from morning till night (there is still a bit more to do but this can wait until another day as this particular stuff is beyond aggravating ... I think there is a special level in hell reserved for insurance companies) I am celebrating today by taking things easy.  I hope to include reading & stitching in the mix   : )

To celebrate my 200th post, I am going to have a different sort of giveaway.  Different for me anyway.  As some of you know, my giveaways have always been surprise giveaways.  I like to do them like that because then I can choose something to send to the winner that they will hopefully be sure to enjoy   : )   This time, however, I am posting what you will get ... at least in part ... & here it is ...

I saw this kit quite a few years ago & thought it was wonderful!  I would love to have each & every ornament shown!  However, it has sat in a pattern box in my closet since I purchased it.  I look at it every so often & then put it back in the box.  It is with a heavy heart that I know it is something I am not going to do so I may as well pass it along to someone who will actually make use of it   : )

I will also add a surprise for the winner   : )

As always, I ask that you please not post this giveaway on your blog.  This giveaway is only open to current followers of my blog.  You only need to comment on this post & tell me you want to be in the drawing.  I will then write your name on a piece of paper, toss it into some sort of container, & draw the winner.  I will draw the name on Sunday, November 13, so you have until then to comment   : )



Oh definitely include me, and no you do not talk to much. I don't often leave comments, but I do read what you post. I love that kit, I have actually almost purchased it several times. Thanks for the give-away. Cyndy

Congratulations on 200 posts!! This kit looks wonderful, and as much fun as it would be to win, please don't enter my name this time around - I just won your last giveaway (and haven't gotten photos posted yet!) - and I probably have enough projects on my dance card the way it is....I just wanted to pop in, though, and say congratulations - and good luck to everyone else! Happy Sunday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
