We have a winner & a new HUGE contest is coming…

Did I say morning? Technically it is still morning right? I mean it’s not like it’s noon yet so I’d say I’m still good. Sessions are winding down and it’s time to start enjoying the holidays… I’m so excited, I feel like a little kid with this most wonderful anticipation of a novel idea called ‘rest’. I know, that word is probably as foreign to you as it is to me!  I can’t wait to have my plate cleared. Okay, so it probably won’t be cleared but it will only have crumbs and gravy left…. Not the kind where it’s piled so high you’re hoping you don’t loose your stuffing off the edge.

Of course the reality of me is that I probably won’t be able to walk entirely away. Although the last couple weeks I’ve done surprisingly well at just not worrying about “it”, whatever “it” might be. I’m of course planning to bring my Macbook Pro to Seattle and you can bet I have a few projects that I’m looking forward to completing finally! I told myself I wasn’t going to do any session in December. A couple snuck in but what can you do? December babies can’t help when they come and since I spent my first Christmas as a brand new mommy in the NICU, I completely understand!! I hope you’re trying to start wrapping up all the holiday late night edits (I’m so glad I don’t have to do that part) and getting ready to just enjoy the people who truly make you happy and are the best reasons for counting blessings this week.

The winner of the This ‘n’ That Designs Sweet Baby Collection is #18 (thanks  LAURA CRAIG you just won the collection, what a great way to start off your Thanksgiving week!


I will be announcing a huge contest on Wednesday! I’ll give you a hint… Start thinking about your profile picture! With this contest is coming a huge prize worth at least $500! Oh yes, that’s right. It’s going to be big and to get us going toward this new topic I thought I’d let you turn the spotlight on me…. In the comments of this post you are welcome to ask me questions! Hopefully you can think of something you’d like to know about me! This is my chance to help you to get to know who I really am just a little better. So ask away, whatever you’d like to know.
