Christmas Giveaway

Good Morning!! Here comes my favorite part of blogging...hosting a giveaway. I love entering them (although I never ever win) but I think I enjoy hosting them more. The deadline to leave a comment (on this entry only) will be Saturday, November 9th. We'll draw a number (if we can figure out how to work that generate-a-number thing) or a name (if we have to resort to slips of paper) on Sunday morning. Be sure to tell your friends. And for everyone you refer to our webstore, Nunnie's Attic, we'll enter your name again into the drawing. So be sure they know to give you the credit for the referral. And be sure they enter on the right post. Good Luck everyone!

Blessing for the day: I am blessed to have met you all through this venue. You each bring something special to my life. May that be a renewed sense of spirituality, great crafting ideas, friendship and fellowship or humor. I know my life is blessed to have you in it.
