25 Days of Sketches Winners and More

I feel like I've spent all night on the computer - probably have. I recall snapping at my kids who were doing their homework, which is a sure fire sign that I'm trying to read and reply with kids who have too many questions. But, they're in bed now, the temperature is dropping like a rock, snow is falling and I'm semi warm and cozy - too late for coffee, maybe I need a cup of hot chocolate. mmm . . . hang on. Decided for a glass of water and a Hershey's Caramel kiss instead. Won't warm me up, but chocolate is chocolate and tomorrow I start the rounding up and putting away of the Christmas decorations. Ick. I'll need more than chocolate. So, how was your holiday? Here it was quiet, very nice and a white Christmas! Santa treated me to a new point-and-shoot digi camera; a Sony Cybershot. I have taken it out of the box and used it but have yet to read the manual to find out all about it. I also need to drop it in my purse, which is the reason I asked for one - I keep missing opportunities! DH got me the Cricut Expression and the Gypsy - other than registering and syncing the Gypsy I haven't had a chance to play - year-end wrap up stuff combined with upcoming shipping and trying to find a new car isn't giving me a lot of "me" time at the moment. So, there were an incredible amount of layouts completed during December - holy cow! Three of you completed all 25 days - amazing! Fabulous layouts and a lot of Apron Strings kits were floating in my head. I'm so happy that you were inspired. Because of that, Sketch Wednesday is added to the weekly line-up of challenges. Just a small change from last year's weekly challenges -- complete all three weekly challenges; Monday Challenge, Sketch Wednesday and 5 on Friday, link them up by Saturday evening and you'll be eligible for a Cookie Jar Treat. Speaking of winners - I have a few to catch up on from 25 Days of Sketches. Since you've hung on this long, I won't wait:
  • Week 2 winner: Rebecca K. -- I loved seeing your kids in your layouts - such cuties! You'll get your Treat in your next shipment.
  • Week 3 winner: Linda R. -- wonderful layouts all around - did you finish your Disney album? Loved seeing the non-traditional way of celebrating a WDW trip. Your treat will also be in your next shipment.
  • Week 4 winner: Nitasha -- great job on the layouts and challenging yourself on doing some new things. Please send me your address again so I can get something out to you.
  • and FINALLY the winner of the Christmas Cookie Treat . . . Nitasha!! Congrats.

Enjoy your goodies, your well-deserved goodies, ladies!

I hope your New Year's is starting off well and that the coming year brings you great joy and prosperity and many completed pages. Photobucket
