Pictures and a Winner ...

Happy Sunday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was really good ... I spend Saturday with Lisa, Cheryl and Pat playing with beads. Cheryl taught us how to make earrings. Wrapping the wires was the hardest part, but after a few pairs of earrings I think I'm ready to try making some on my own. Today we watched a lot of tv and had a yummy Thanksgiving dinner. Chris and Monica came over for the day and we watched the Seahawks, they lost *sad pouty face* and then we watched the last Nascar race of the season ... Jimmie Johnson won the Championship, another *sad pouty face* ... but we had a great day together ... Chris and Monica are going to her parents house for Thanksgiving this year, so it was nice to fix a holiday meal and spend it with them. And since we are going out to dinner with my father in law this year, it'll be nice to have some turkey leftovers this week!

Last week I received 2 ornaments from 2 dear friends that are in a private exchange with me. The first is from Karen. She knows I love reindeer .. look at this adorable ornament! I love all the beads :) and the other goodies she sent were great ...

The next ornament is from Nicole. I've always loved this design from LHN and I love way it's finished too :) Nicole also sent along some goodies ... They both spoiled me really good!


Next up is the winner of my 3rd Blogiversary ... Kathy A ...
