Some News and Linky Party Info


I hope everyone is off to a good start this week. I know many are still visiting with their families for the holidays. My guests went home this morning and they will be missed. I am going to miss hearing Rachele say G Dad and Gwammy.

I can't believe I won a very big blog giveaway on December 23rd, a $150.00 Amazon gift card from A Beach Cottage. I already ordered a few things and will share them in the future. Now that is a great Christmas present. I want to thank Anita at Going a Little Coastal for telling me that I had won that.
I might have missed out if she hadn't told me. Thanks again, Anita.

I made the top ten in the Christmas decor contest at The CSI Project. Very surprised at that. There were so many beautiful homes. Be sure and go visit the other participants.

This week for the "Boring to Better" linky party I would like everyone to pick your favorite project or a review of projects or before and afters you worked on this past year. Show me your best stuff! I would love for you to combine several projects into one post if you like or just show me one. I just may need to keep it to one link up per person.

I will have the link up on Tuesday evening.
Can't wait to see your best!!

Have an awesome day,
