12 Days of Christmas Shop Hop

Well it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I have mixed emotions about Christmas this year. Frankly it's been a really, really crappy year for myself and everyone around me. Yet we all still have so many things to be grateful for including the fact that we were by each other's sides, holding each other's hands and giving big giant hugs when needed. I use to get excited about all the Christmas decorations in the stores, but now it all looks like plastic "happy crappy" made in China. It's just junk. It's not special or meaningful or magical.
With that being the sentiment of many of my friends, I would like to invite you to a place where things are still magical and meaningful and beautiful. Please join me and my fellow pink sisters at Make Mine Pink for the 12 days of Christmas Shop Hop. There's prizes, lot's of fun and most of all meaningful, beautiful gifts by women in business that followed their bliss, their dreams and their hearts.
Starting the day after Thanksgiving, please visit my website each and every day for a new FREE stitchery pattern. The pattern will only be available for one day. Collect all 12 and then I'll show you the finished project that you can make from the 12 designs. Of course there will be prizes from me too as I'm grateful for antibiotics making Mr. Fuzzy Pants better. Thanks to all of you for your well wishes. They always help.
12 days of something to look forward to that is fun and festive. Something meaningful to be shared with you, my friends.
This week IGF Razzy still being with me.

Oh, you've really got me interested in the 12 Days, Shell! Can't wait to see what you're up to.

I'm so glad Razzy is feeling better. Poor guy! Give him a hug from Kessie and me.

Hope you'll stop by tomorrow. I'm launching my 200th Post Giveaway.

I am happy to hear you are going to do another stitching mystery! Yeah, hopefully this time I can do a little better on the stitching part.
Just so you know, the outfit and you looked beautiful!!! You are not even remotely looking fat in that picture, just happy!!!

Hurray for healthy bunn,bunn:)I am so glad he is well!!!

I feel the same way about the Christmas stuff at the stores, there is something missing. Plastic, not so fantastic. I am making gifts and buying from other artists for my gift giving too.

Love the trees Shell, now those are truly special and beautiful:)

I was saying to someone earlier today that I just can't get in the "holiday mood." It depresses me really, buying groceries and seeing all manner of plastic crap lining the aisles trying to prod us into the buying mode. Maybe a little homemade fun will cheer me up and into more of a holiday spirit. So glad your baby is better!

Hi Shell,

That's an amazing idea to have patterns up each day! I'm sure that would be hugely popular! And glad to know Razzy is better!

Have a great week!
