a shout out, a reminder and a winner

I'm in a time crunch so here are three things I've wanted/needed to post.  Read to the end for a surprise!  Oh, I'm such a tease.  I know that most of you are going to skip to the end now.  I probably would too!  :) 

A Thank You!
The past couple of weeks I've been tickled pink to find this fledgling blog featured by a few bloggy friends on their blogs.  I wanted to give them each a shout out.  Hop on over and see . .  . 

Sandi over at A Legacy of Stitches.  She just reached a milestone with her 500th post.  Wow!  That's some serious blogging.  She found twelve crafts till Christmas through her sister, and I'm so glad she did.   

Lorene over at Just Lu.  (I like to pretend we're best bloggy friends so I call her Lorene.)  She wrote such a kind feature post about twelve crafts till Christmas that I'm still blushing over it.  She not only has her own blog but she is a feature writer over at Housewife Eclectic every week. 

Mary Elizabeth over at Ten Thousand Hugs.  First, I already knew that I like Mary Elizabeth because she has a really great name.  Second, she has a great blog too.  Go check out her new blog makeover. 

A Reminder
I love comments!  I love REPLYING to comments!  But many of you are no-reply bloggers which means that when you leave a comment and I get an e-mail telling me that you left a comment, I can't hit reply to send you a quick response.  I respond to ALMOST EVERY comment except those left by no-reply bloggers.  If you have left me comments and have not received a reply from me at least once, you are probably a no-reply blogger.  Maybe you want it this way.  Maybe you don't have a clue what I'm talking about.  Either way, considering changing this by going to EDIT PROFILE on your dashboard and then click the box that says "SHOW E-MAIL".  Pretty please!  I would love to respond to you!

A Winner
First, thanks to all who follow and all who entered!  I'm so encouraged to keep up with my crafting for Christmas goal because you read, comment and e-mail me.  I'm one of those people that wishes that everyone could win something.  I drive my husband nuts when we watch the Super Bowl every year because I go on and on about how I think both teams should win.  But I'm pretty sure CSN wouldn't be too crazy about giving away 60 plus gift codes, so the one recipient of the $30.00 gift code form CSN stores is . . .

Jennifer at The Toy Box Years!

Congrats Jennifer!  I'll be in touch on Monday. 

Okay, that's everything I had to cover today.  I'm working on my second stuffed animal/pillow hybrid tonight.  (I need a better name for it.  Any ideas?)

Craft on!

Thanks for the "shout-out". I'm a little behind in my blog reading but trying to catch up this week. :-)
