My Holiday Collection and I have a GIVE AWAY!

It's been a while since I've had a GIVE AWAY on my blog, and since I have some great goodies that I'd love to share with YOU, I thought I would do a give away with this post! Guess how many buttons are in my jar, and the winner will receive a set of buttons of YOUR choice in my Etsy shop!
Yeah, these buttons took hours to count..haha. Steve took half and I took the rest and sorted and counted. They are now sorted by color and so much easier to access.

So leave your guess in the comments section and Friday I will post the actual number of buttons and who the winner is! Please leave your email address as well, so I can get in contact with you.

I have been adding quite a few holiday items to my Etsy shop that I just love :) Today I finished a set of felt hand stitched flowers that I have available in my shop. These were SO fun to create. I have to admit my fingers are quite sore as I type this..haha. I think these would be gorgeous on holiday layouts, cards, gift bags, your presents or even as a Christmas time pin. Pretty much anything!

Another new additon to my little Etsy shop is these "ity bity" buttons. My buttons are usually about 1 inch and these are about 1/2 inch and so CUTE :)

This set of embellishments I really enjoyed making. All the tiny details were fun to create and are going to be perfect for cards, layouts and mini books.

Here are a couple more sets I created as well.....

Well, I better get back to work. I have 150 of these to make :)

I hope you have a great week!! And...I look forward to seeing your guesses ;)

Dear family and in-laws....

I am creating this post to address some concern regarding my September 30th post about the stock market.

It made me sad to hear today that some of our family members who I didn't know read this blog thought we were having financial difficulties.......

That's so far from what I was trying to say. Steve and I have been really smart about our financial decisions and thank god we have..... We are doing better than well and have everything we need. No credit card debit, we own our cars, we have a beautiful home and lifestyle......we are doing just fine :)

In lieu of this topic I thought I'd write OUR top 10 things that WE'RE grateful for in no particular order:
1.) Good Health
2.) No Debt
3.) Loving family
4.) Warm stable home
5.) Secure jobs
6.) Ability to work from home
7.) A strong marriage
8.) Enjoying life each day in our new town.... LIFE *is* good.
9.) Jamba Juice..haha...we had to say that *wink*
10.) Our fur babies :)

Have a wonderful Sunday....we are!
Steve and Tessa
