Interrupting This Panic Attack To Say Thank-you.....

Ok, folks....I'm in full blown panic mode.  Eleven days until Christmas??? Really?? How, exactly, did that happen??!  Yikes....
Anywho.....Just popping in quickly to say a belated thank-you to Janice from Prims By The Water.  She had (an undisclosed numbered) birthday on December 2nd.  To celebrate, she had a giveaway and I won, I won, I won! Yippee!!!

The package arrived last week, but I've been remiss in so many things I've lost track....Janice, though, had the gift all festively wrapped and I behaved myself and reached for the camera before tearing into it:

And the gifts:  This adorable little snow fellow handmade by Janice (her original pattern):
(He's covered in German glitter glass and sparkles magically under the lights.....)

And, another of Janice's original patterns, "Santa Caw":
(And some Ummmm & Ummmmm's....)
Adorable!! Thanks so much Janice!!! Hope you enjoyed your birthday half as much as I did!!!
I also want to share a new blog with you.

Some of you may remember that back in fall, I won a wonderful giveaway from Misi at 1890 Gable House Musings. My gift was some amazing and delightful pumpkin folk made by the very talented Mary Harris.  Mary makes incredible dolls and other prim goodies, and sells them on her Picturetrail.
I recently purchased this sweet little "Frosty" pillow from Mary:

And this "Leather Britches" garland:

Sweet Mary, though, generously also sent me this wonderful Ginger (complete with his "family gene pool" recipe):

Thank you SOOO much Mary!!! I love him!!

Mary recently started her very own blog....Woo Hoo!!  You can find her HERE!
....And, best of all, she is currently having a Giveaway for one of her amazing one-of-a-kind Santas:

Become one of Mary's followers and sign up for a chance to win....But hurry - giveaway ends on December 16th!!!


Ok....Back to panic mode....
Wishing you a Merrie Tuesday!

Jean @ Prim Crafts said...

Hi Robin,
I don't know what blogger is doing to me, but I have not gotten any of your recent posts and to boot~ litterally ~ they had me not following your blog along with some others I know I was following. Well I know I was a follower and now I am again.
You've received some wonderful gifts in the mail~ just love em all.
And stopped over at Mary's and signed up~ thanks for the info.
Take a deep breath and relax~
Warm winter blessings,

Christine said...

If we were kids again we'd be moaning that there' s still 11 days to wait!!!! don't panic but enjoy! that's what I've been reciting over and over to myself!

Best wishes

Some how I don't see a lucky crow like yourself in a panic. Oh and have I ever told you how pretty your blog is and sounds nice too! I bet if there was a scratch and sniff it would smell like pumpkin spice!

Linda ★ Parker's Paradise said...

It can be overwhelming. I never know what to get for even the grand kids. They are growing up too fast for me!
I did get some almond bark today to use to make dipped pretzels. They are my favorite.
Sounds kind of selfish, doesn't it?
Oh well, it is what it is.....
Looking forward to it all being over so life can get back to 'normal'....
