Season's Special Meaning Giveaway at Prims By Olde Lady Morgan

Marie at Primitives By Olde Lady Morgan has asked us to
share what special meaning the Christmas season holds for us.
I feel the love of Jesus and the Virgin Mary all year, but at
this time of year the love is especially strong. The beautiful meaning of Christmas is the birth of Jesus our Savior and
Mass is especially beautiful during the Christmas season.  It
gives me such an overwhelming sense of peace and happiness. I am very blessed to feel this in my heart so much more as Christmas approaches.
I think Marie came up with an incredible idea for this give-
away by asking us to look inside our hearts to search for the
meaning of Christmas. Here's the adorable little pouty girl
doll she is giving away, her original design called "Better
Not Pout, Virginia":
Thanks, Marie for asking us to share our special meaning of the season.

SOME THINGS TO SHARE WITH YOU

Hi, Primmies,
I'm so glad that I decided to TAKE MY TIME and really read the blogs that I follow. I've discovered some fun, useful and
talented sources for crafts and bloggers.
The first is a FREEBIE page for prim patterns. The link is
Sassafras Hill Primitives Freebie Prim Patterns page. They also have lots more great prim patterns for purchasing.
The next links I got from Kim at Old Road Primitives:
101 Handmade Holiday Tutorials click HERE; 101 Handmade Holiday Ornament Tutorials click HERE; 101 Days Of Christmas click HERE that contains tips, tutorials, recipes and inspirations.
Kim also linked Pinterest Christmas Craft Ideas. She says
click the graphic to be taken to that idea page.
I have tested the links and they all work, if you have a problem let me know, please. I haven't had time to actually stay and read through these so I hope there's something that
you all like.
The new blogger I'm following is Jody of Sweet Bear Creek Whims. She's a very talented painter and makes the cutest
dolls, ornies and makedos to name just a few items.
She has a great page called Tips and Hints that I found extremely informative. It's always nice to learn new ways and time savers from other crafters with lots of experience.
I also found a cute craft source site called Country Whims 
where Jody buys her German Glass Glitter and these cute
twisty carrot noses.
There's a lot of traffic coming through here right now (there
goes the clean floors again) for the Craig's list stuff that
Mr. Glen Oaks listed. Someone just hauled away our 1930's
"furnace" that was here when the house was built. It's like
a wood stove and it isn't safe anymore for home use, the ad stated that and we still got 10 calls. The lady and her sons that just took it are using it for a fire pit(?) outside. I don't see it; it was free so it's out of the cellar and they're happy and we're happy.
I'll be back later, I have to go and read all these new linkies.
Susan

I'M GETTING UP THERE...

Yeah, my age is getting up there (55) but I didn't mean that.
I got 74 followers!
Do all of you successful bloggers remember your thrill when

you got 1? I do, and then the numbers just started growing.
Every time you get another follower, it's re-affirmation and
acknowledgement that maybe you do have something actually worthwhile to contribute!
So, in honor of  'getting up there', I am naturally thinking about a giveaway to thank all of you who have been so kind and thoughtful to me in welcoming me to blogging.
I'd like to do a giveaway right after the holidays and 
I need your input. What would you like to see me give away? I'm afraid my talents are limited, I don't create any-
thing design-wise, but I love to sew.
What would it be girls? A winter doll, angel, snowman, Santa, Easter doll, like rabbits, garden/spring angel, you get the idea. Or, would you like a cross stitch item like a couple
of pinkeeps or a small sampler?
I think it will be so much fun to see what you all come up
with for a "giveaway wish list".
Talk to you soon, Primmies...

I Look Forward To Your Comments
