Well posts have been a bit slow around here, I cut off the tip off my index finger - not all off it but enofe to seriously hamper my ability to type - try it some time, typing without your index finger, it sucks LOL. I am still typing without it but at least it does not hurt as badly now.
Our Christmas was great, my family was trilled with all my winnings, my mom loved her two book Cd's. My young's just loved her piggy key chain, her papoose for her baby in bright pink,  her ballet puppet, and her bag with amazingly sweet faces on it. My oldest loved her Cat book. My husband got some all to yummy hot sauce. Considering I did not start entering contests until the summer I got allot off my Christmas gifts this way. I intend to start right away with putting allot of my winnings aside for birthday and Christmas gifts this year - see if I can have a very cheep year next year, would be so nice! I am going to make a chart and mark off who I have got something for so as I win things I know who is left, should work well, and be very efficient/effective - what I did learn is to not have my list on a loose piece of paper. I am going to put it in my Mom's diary that I won just last week (have not posted about it yet). It will be my own little contest with myself to see if I can will all my Christmas stuff, with the exception off a couple for my kids of course. Do any of you do this?

My Secret Santa arrived!

Well on Friday my package from my Secret Santa present arrived, first of all my buddy ended up being Katie from concertkatie.blogspot.com she has a great blog all about her concerts that she goes to (she goes to a lot of them!) and photo taking, scrap booking ect. Go check her out. So my gift was one of my favorite things, bath goodies, two Christmas tree bath bombs, three tiny wash cloths that looked like candy! and a soap that also looks like a candy, very unique, and not anything that I had ever seen before. I can not wait to use the bath bombs, I am just finishing a three day work week, and then I will be soaking in a nice bath tonight :)  Thanks so much Katie - so appreciated, believe me, I do not get a lot of bath stuff and I just love it!

Dewey's Nine Lives

A book came in the mail the other day, that I was hoping would come in time for Christmas. I wanted to win this so badly for my animal loving daughter. She will just love this book, then I will sneak it out of her hoard of books and read it to :) It looks amazing, and uplifting. I won it from Nolie at  http://www.noliesplace.com/ she made my day with that e-mail! This cat was a rescue, and and lives in the town library who goes on to inspire the entire town and beyond. My daughter often looks on the darker side, and I think that this book might help her to look at things a little lighter. I look forward to her putting a review on her hopefully after Christmas. But for now I just wanted to post that this great book is here and you can get it on Amazon or at your book store, a great Christmas gift for sure!
