1500 Posts - Giveaway!!

Yesterday I shared my 1500th post on this blog!!  I've enjoyed writing my blog for almost 5 1/2's an awesome way to keep track of some of what's going on in my life.  Goodness knows I wouldn't remember most of it on my own!!
It's also been a wonderful way to meet women I wouldn't have met otherwise. Women like Joyce, Shelley, AnnBecky, Lorraine, Linda, Sue & Dawn.  I've emailed, snail mailed, or swapped with them, we've commented on each other's blogs.  I've even talked with one of them on the phone! 
(Hi Joyce!! We will meet someday soon!)
Plus I have a whole long list posted on my blog, of all the other blogs I like to visit. 
So many neat women, so may fun ideas.
I really love having this blog and I really appreciate those of you who visit it.  Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making time in your busy day to stop by and see what's going on in my life! 

As a small gesture of gratefulness, I'd love to have a GIVEAWAY.  Everything in the above photo will go to the winner. The goodies include several things I made and a couple cute items from Target's dollar section. 

I love the little pick-up truck that's 'bringing home the tree'! 
The little tree on the spool is fun...I love making these!

A candy cane in a mitten ornament, and paper candy cane striped straws!  A matchbox with a little surprise inside, and a wooly sheep to hang on your tree. Plus a little snowman bottle!

How about a gingerbread man wound up in baker's twine...I had to buy one of these for me too!

Actually, I think there'll be two winners....because I put together two groups of goodies.  Nine items in each group!!  Two winners!!
All you have to do is comment on this blog post...maybe you could share what you put on top of your Christmas tree!!!
I'll be announcing the winners on Monday, December 9th!!
PS. I have a little star on top of my tree.

Update ~ Giveaway has ended.

Congratulations Marie, that sure is a wonderful milestone!
When Tom was in Grade 1 he made an angel out of gold cardboard and decorated it in glitter and it takes prime possie at the top of our tree! (that was 6 years ago now) Good luck everyone! Well done Marie!

I'm almost finished decorating and your little gems could certainly work into my scheme...everything is so cute! You are a very faithful poster and I have enjoyed getting to know and love you through your blog. I'll never catch up but I will try to be more consistent in the New Year. Good luck this must be tired!
