67 days....and WINNERS!

Hello and welcome to all my current and new followers!! Glad to have you all share my journey with me.

There has been so much going on these past couple of weeks, which I will share a brief summary off tonight, but will post pictures of everything hopefully tomorrow! I have missed blogging!!

So this is what I have been up to: Planned my twins 3rd birthday party (28 people came over), baked and decorated 2 cakes, one being Tinkerbell and the other a Disney Cars cake. Then I had an intense week of sewing. Managed to get several projects completed and hope that I will be able to share them soon, but right now its still a secret :) So that has been my last 2 weeks, and this week looks busy but not as bad...phew!

Did you know that there is only 67 days left until Christmas time!!! WOW when you think about it, that is not a lot of time to get all that Christmas crafting, sewing and baking done. Then add in the family time, parties and decorating for the festive season....eeeeks....I better sit down, make a detailed list with timelines for each project and stick too it!!

What projects are you working on for this holiday season? Have you started, or are you done? And what are you working on?? I would love to hear!!

Now on to the good stuff, the winners!! I put all entries in to a container and had my husband pick out 2 slips of paper...
