Time for a Giveaway

I hope everyone's week has been great so far and if you're in the middle of a snowfall, I wish I could be there....for about 30 minutes.  I did a really stupid thing the other day.  I ordered this snow owl from 123 Stitchery not remembering that I had my LNS order it for me too so I've decided to give one away.  If you are interested in a chance to win leave a comment to this post with your email address and I'll pull a name next Monday night.

Good Luck

Baby It Was Cold Inside.....

Well we survived the 9 degree temperatures of the ICE show at the Gaylord Palms and I have some wonderful pictures to share with you.  Remember they used over 2 million pounds of ice to make these sculptures.

These were the slides you could go down and yes I did....twice.  I had the cold bum to prove it.

This angel was about 12 feet tall.
This Nativity was absolutely amazing.
Peyton acting a little crazy.

Me and my Little Buddy John.

As you can tell by the end me and hubby were pretty wiped out.  We all had hot chocolate and then went home and changed our clothes....back in to the shorts and t shirts.  LOL  

After that we went to Disney Springs to see the decorated Christmas trees and I know I took some pictures of my favorites but I'll be dang if I can find them on my phone.  When I finally do, I'll post them.

I also have a finish to share.  The first house of Glitter Village by CCN.  I'm enjoying this so far and I've just started building number 2.  I'll keep you updated.

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend like we did.  There's nothing like spending time with your love ones this time of year.  I will look back on these pictures with love and laughter as a good time in my life.

Happy new week #BloomGirl! We believe you're going to do something great with your week    #BloomPlanners #BloomPlanner #BloomDailyPlanners #Calendar #BloomGirl #Planner #Plan #Organization #Inspiration #PlannerAddict #PlannerLove #PlannerCommunity #BloomWhereYouArePlanted #PlanToBloom

An Amazing Piece of Art

Like a lot of you I have a love of Pinterest.  While on there tonite I came across a lady who does exceptional needle art.  I thought I would share this because we all have that love of a needle and thread.

Her name is Salley Mavor of Wee Folk Studio and her work just amazes me.  Above is just one of the works of art this very talented lady has accomplished.  Click of the link below to follow the trail of her design....Pocketbook of Borders.  What amazed me was her lack of fear of using unusual objects to get the illusion she wanted.  I would never of thought of using wood in this type of embroidery but she shows that it works beautifully.  Enjoy!

Christmas at Gaylord Palms 2018

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving with loved ones.  We had a blast over at Peyton's house.  John deep fried the turkey and it was just a little over done (black) but she had lots of other edibles to take your mind off of the lost turkey.  I don't know how she makes her sweet potato casserole but I must get that recipe....yummy!

We are going to the ice show next week and I had to make Zane's little hat.  The place lends you parkas to wear but you must furnish the hat and gloves and since it's a balmy 9 degrees  in there, you do need them.  This is what I mean by the ice show....

When you go thru the ice sculptures there are two story ice slides which I love.  Hubby and I went on them last year and you do have a very cold butt when you get to the end.  LOL  Everything is made of ice....even the stairs you walk up.  It's amazing.  There is over 2 million tons of ice this year and at the end they have a life size nativity made of crystal clear ice.  It's stunning!

Wanted to share a new picture of Zane with you....

.....he's getting so big and I tried to get a new picture of Little John but he's never still.  LOL

Also, Vallie went in for grooming yesterday and they gave her a birthday scarf (she'll be 8 years old next month) and a Christmas bow on her ear.  I was surprised when we got up this morning that she still had it on.  She hates bows!

Well that's all for now.  I've been doing some crocheting and I restarted the Glitter Village on a light tan 28ct. Jobelan because I just couldn't see the stitches on the 32ct. glitter Belfast linen.  It was driving my eyes crazy.  I'll post an update once I get some more of it stitched.  

How many of you went Black Friday Shopping?  The kids talked me into going out Thursday night and friday shopping and I was pleasantly surprised.  No shoving, no fighting over items, no fighting over parking spaces....it was a nice experience.  Hope the rest of you that went shopping had the same.

Thanks for stopping by...
