We've closed on our new home & a little blog candy...

Believe it or not, I'm still around. :o) We are in Alabama at the moment...we closed on our house Friday and we've been running around here for the last few days getting utilities and other things done before we head back to Illinois tomorrow. Can't wait to be down here for good..we are looking at the end of June for the final move. I hate to leave. :o( Hope all my blog friends are doing well...I promise I will visit as soon as I get a free minute to blog hop. :o)

I had planned to post some blog candy when I had my 5000th visitor, but the days just seem to slip away & I missed it. Finally took the photo tonight and got it uploaded. Here's what you get if the random generator picks your number! :o) A pint sized clear pail, 2 hinged nugget tins, a package of Petaloo flowers, 3 Inque Boutique clear stamp sets (Bella Flora, hearts, & paisley), a small acrylic stamp block, & a Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser. All you have to do to win is post something about yourself here on the blog. I will use the random generator to pick the winner next Tuesday night..the 20th (my son's birthday.) :o)




Time for me to call it a night. We have a long drive ahead of us tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!

Blessings,

Good luck on your move, Deb! We moved last summer to the next city & it was quite an undertaking! I can't even imagine moving out of state!

Happy Birthday to your son!

Good to see you back Deb...God bless on the new chapter in your life. I have moved over 23 times, so I know what a pain it is to pack & unpack - good time to purge though LOL

Hi, I am from Canada and I am following links as I try to find inspiration to do with my new stamps I've ordered from Papertrey Ink! I find when I discover new people and places that it helps me to grow as a crafter and as a person because of the wonderful things I read about and learn. I especially enjoy seeing your craft projects as I do on most blogs I visit. Happy crafting everyone out there! :)

WOO HOO there is light at the end of the tunnel! lol

I am wishing for you a smooth transition from one place to the other.

Many birthday blessings for your son too!

So on top of a move you get to do a birthday party too! To bad I can't do the 'Samantha thing on Bewitched' and twitch my nose so I could hop over and help!

Things will calm down soon, or at least that as been my mantra! lol
