Check out Craftin Desert Diva's blog at for this great giveaway

2 Christmas Giveaways!!

                          Christmas Giveaway #1

                     Christmas Giveaway #2


First of I want to say that I feel that I have been MIA lately. So, I wanted to give you a couple of updates on my life. We have just started to look for a new home. We will be staying in the same area and hope to be moved by February(might be wishful thinking on my part).With this in mind I have been working on getting my design teams and hop projects done. Also my oldest daughter Alivia's birthday is on December 25th, so we are going to be celebrating her birthday this Saturday. I did make all her invitations and will share them shortly. This week I'm going to make some goody bags for all the guest that will attend her party. Along with all of this I can't believe Christmas is just a few weeks away!! I hope to return to my normal posting after the holidays
