Acknowledgments and an Award

Hi ya'll, I sure do hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I know I did.
I am working on a special post for you all who enjoyed my bartending story that I posted awhile back. But in the mean time, I would like to thank a few people .

I recieved this most honored Christmas award from Denise of The Christmas Spirit Award. I'm going to tell you 5 things I like about Christmas, but I'm not going to pass it, because we all deserve this award. We all have the spirit. Just know from my heart this award is going out to all of you.
1.Knowing the true meaning of Christmas. I find that rather important.
2.Being with family and friends.
3.I love Christmas Music.
4.All the goodies,Food,candy,candy,food.....
5.This is a combo of two things.I enjoy putting up my tree. Christmas trees just make me so happy. Then after the tree is up.I start puting my Christmas villageThese are what make me happy.
I also want to thank Denise for practicaly giving me my beautiful pink clown,so that I could make my pink gift box decoration.It was so beautiful under my tree.
Here is a very special thanks,not that my other thanks yous arn't special...LOL...Its just I was so happy when Chris of me these two oringinal prints with Certificates of Authenticity,signed dated and numbered. What a special person, a very talented artist he is.He has really supported me and I count him Friend. Thank you Hon.Here is another talented person,and all around sweet lady. Nancy of I am so happy I bought these shoes.They were just beautiful hanging on my tree. I know it was hard to see them on the video, so here is a better picure of the shoes

I won some beautiful Christmas tags from this lovely woman Kris Hunt of've emailed eack ohter a few times and enjoyed her so much.I want to tell you how much I loved thses tags and will never put them on a prent ,because I'm greedy and want them for myself. LOL...

Hello Lili M of haven't forgotton you.The cancer survivor braclet I won from you does have a special meaning for me. My very best friend,like a sister to me had her left breast removed not to long ago .She is now growing her hair back, she was so upset about loosing her hair.I thought she looked beautiful bald.The best of all is the news that she is now cancer free.We got that most wonderful news right before Christmas. This was surely the best of Christmases.
Now I want to acknowlage Kris of puting the link on her site to my Christmas Village. That was a sweet thing to do.Thank you
Thank you all again. Love you guys XXXOOO

  2. May 2009 be happy and healthy to you and your loved ones. Thanks for mentioning the little bracelet on your blog. It was my pleasure sending it to you, though it is small, you have to think that we support the cancer association by buying them. Thanks again for your kind words!

    ooh I sort of messed up and had to create a google account to get back to my blog - not difficult - just kept getting put off!
    Thank you for the link from the pictures of my tags - well your tags!
    I agree about putting up a tree - although for some reason I put it off until a day or two before Christmas, and then didn't want to take it down!
    Hope you are doing well!
    Wishing you and your family the best for 2009!
