As you know, I have been really sick (& still am) this week. All of the fabulous Christmas crafts & cooking blogs that I had planned to do, have not been able to make it to the blog. Now I am running so far behind in Christmas preparations for the big day that I am getting a little nervous. I am going to have to drag myself into the kitchen & cook until I drop today or at least tell the chickadees what to cook while I supervise! It is a little scary to think that Santa is having his last surf before he puts on the red suit & checks his list.
I wanted to take this time to say a big thank you to all of you who have followed me on this amazing journey at Sew, cook, laugh & live over this past year. Without all of your fantastic comments & ideas, the blog wouldn’t work. It would just be some crazy woman posting photo’s & talking to herself.
I have to say a big thank you to my blog sponsors
The fantastic Sandy from
& the wonderful Donna from
To both of you lovely ladies, thank you for the amazing support & for taking a chance on me!
I can not say thankyou without also including the lovely ladies who are part of the
You know who you are & some days I wonder what I did without you lovely ladies to chat to on those long nights when my hubby is away. I do take this opportunity to say sorry to your husbands/partners/kids for keeping you on the computer so much! You are all such a talented bunch of women & I want to offer the fantastic ladies who have Facebook/market businesses to be a guest on the blog next year to show off your fantastic handmade products. Thank you to all of you who have participated in the giveaways & ornament swaps. I like the idea of the swaps so much that I think we may do another craft swap once we are all over the festive season & the kids are back to school.
I am going to be taking a little time off from the blog between now & the new year. My wonderful, hardworking husband will be arriving home tonight in the big red rig (his version of Santa;s sleigh!) & will not be getting back in the big rig until the new year. We have a lot of family adventures planned & have so many things to see & do. I may drop by from time to time with pictures of what we have been up to.
Well, I have it on good authority that Santa has finished his last surf & is packing up the boards to head back to the village for final preparations.
Did you know that there is a Santa tracker online? Head HERE to follow Santa as he gets ready for the big day.
From my family to yours, Have a truly magical Christmas & a wonderful New Year!
