Celebrating A Milestone and a Giveaway!

 I recently hit the 100+ follower mark and I am humbled beyond anything!

After all, when I started this blog, I never in a million years thought anyone beyond a few friends and family members would want to read along. It was just a way to document our progress as we turned our neglected little farm into our someday home.

Back of house when we first bought it

The front 
But along the way, I learned a lot about blogging and made some incredible new friends.




Y'all encouraged me when things were not going well and cheered me on when they were good.
I was and am extremely blessed by each of you!

So I just want to say "Thank you!!"

 To celebrate I'd like to give one lucky reader a set of my Christmas cards (4 of each design).


The new design will be a Texas Santa to go with the cowboy snowman.

Just leave a comment below by November 9th to be included in the drawing. Then I'll announce the winner the following Monday. Good luck and thank you for following along!

Hugs,
Cecilia

  4. Congratulations! Your cards are so sweet! I still have one on display in my craft room...:) You are a dear blogging friend and I always look forward to reading about what you've been up to on the farm. I enjoy reading your comments you leave for me on my blog too. Blogging friends are very special. I think because we all have so much in common. I can't wait to see your Texas Santa!

    Hugs, Vicky

    1. I agree Vicky! It's like a room full of people with the same interests. You are dear to me too and I look forward to reading your comments and your blog. My biggest challenge on the cards will be finding a new printer...my other one closed down. Fortunately there are several to check out. :)
      Hugs!

    1. Aw, thanks Cecilia. The photo was taken a couple of years ago so I could give my husband an updated photo of me. I do like the way this one turned out. :-)
      I'm excited to do a new card design - what with my knee last year and my brother's illness the year before, I haven't made one in a couple of years. It will be good to create again.

  7. I've enjoyed seeing the cute stuff you make out of junk! Your repurposing is so fun and creative to watch. The seasons on the mantle has been the funnest to watch. :)
