So many comments to choose from last night for the kit drawing! I put them into the random number selector and voila- 2 emerged. Jen and Jeanne. Somehow, that seemed to be too few so I chose one more and am sending a third kit to Olivia.
I loved reading those comments regarding favorite posts; they were amazingly thoughtful and kind. It looks as though my family posts are the ones that you remember most. I do, indeed, enjoy writing about that, so I'll keep at it without overdoing I hope. Those posts are the hardest to write though, to make sense of the feelings and emotion without being too sentimental. But surely they are my favorites too- and the crafts. Have to have those. I wish I could send a personal thank you out to each of you. I guess this is it, but really, truly, thanks so much for reading and staying with me here.
We had a perfect day yesterday, Mo surprising her sisters with an early homecoming, the girls and their sweet boyfriends here for the afternoon, Andy cooking up a feast, football and tunes in the background, good stories, constant laughter, hugs and hugs and hugs.
So on now to the holidays, to time with Mo and family, then baking, crafting and building more kits because you asked for them (added the tree kit now). And if you are in the city, I'll be teaching at Tinsel Trading again on Saturday, the 8th. We're making felt ornaments (sneak peek there on the site). I promise you they are very cute and the class is wonderful fun.
When it gets cold this winter, I'll go back to that woodstack of comments and kindness and burn through it again. You all make it very, very cozy in here. Thank you! I hope you too have lots of love this week to stoke your homefires for the holiday. Stay warm. xoC
