Thank you to all of you who participated in the Gift Box Punch Board Sweepstakes.  We will be announcing the winner very soon.  It WILL be this week, but may only be announced to those of you on the newsletter list.

We’re just trying to figure out how we’ll do it! Video on Facebook?  Newsletter?

I should remind you that you’re not in the drawing if you didn’t receive a confirmation notice from us.  It has a link you use to confirm that you’re in.  There are 7 of you who haven’t.  So if you didn’t see a couple videos from Ann after you entered, you should look in your junk mail box.

YOU can join our mailing list here.  (but this is not related to the contest.)

Ann’s up to her elbows in swaps she has to get done.  And she’s still got 10 good nails!  (knock on wood!)

Christmas Card Swap

60 done.  55 to go.

Now when I bark that 60 are done, they still need the bow attached, our stamp on the back & put into clear envelopes.  But they’re stamped, layered and done!

I’ve heard that sometimes Ann will work on them on the plane.  Or sometimes her favorite friends help her once she gets here.  But the times we like best is when we have friends over and they’re all finished before she goes.

If you haven’t seen the finished card, you can see it in this post.

Weekly Deal

Here’s what was just released this morning for those of you who like our Weekly Deals.  Remember that you get an extra little something with your thank you card when you use the Hostess Code QYV664RU.
