SHOW Me #56

Merry Christmas!
Hard to believe that in just 3 days, it is going to be Christmas morning and in in another 11 days, we will be into another year.  Lordie. . . .2012!  Who would've ever thought!  Wow!  Boy, does time ever fly.  Soon, we will be putting everything together for our tax accountant and getting ready for spring cleaning.  It will be here sooner than you think.  Hate to ruin it for you.......but first I need to get all those decorations down and put away.  Can't wait.  Isn't that terrible.  I just like NORMALCY!
Ok. . . .onto something more fun.  I think I just depressed myself a little.  hee hee.

Thanks to everyone who played along this past week.  You all certainly inspire me with your posts and photos.  And some of you even make me feel a little tired.  You know who you are!  hee hee
There were 10 wonderful entries this week and the lucky winner of the free image is
Mz. Krafty Karen.
Congratulations.  I'll get that credited to your account this morning, girlie!  Hope that wind hasn't blown you away or someone hasn't accidentally packed you in one of the moving boxes.  

Since it's Christmas, and with only 10 days left in the year, I thought that I'd take the week off.  Imagine that. Not a lot of time. . . .just so that if I don't feel like doing anything then I don't have to make excuses.  I like to start the new year out fresh, so this next week and a half, I'll be dejunking, reorganizing, taking down the Christmas decorations and getting ready for a brand new year.  That's why, I'll be running the SHOW ME THURSDAY for 2 WHOLE weeks!  

Since this is a 2 week challenge. . .you may enter twice. . . .if you want to and have the time! 
there will be TWO winners announced when we get back to the normal weekly show me fun on January 5th. . . .
I haven't been doing much drawing lately.  Just haven't felt motivated. Isn't that terrible!  So I thought that I would show you some photos of my Sassy Christmas decorations. LOL
We have mostly all handmade ornaments on our tree and ones from my childhood.  I made most of the ones that you see. . . .a LONG time ago, when I used to sew and quilt.  The last two are snowmen from a few years ago from my licensing with Linda McDonald.  Thought you'd like a sneak peek since I've been getting emails about sharing my "LOVE" of Christmas decorating.

Before you say anything. . . .yes, I know I spelled 'ornament' wrong, but was in a hurry.

So show me what you have going on, Christmas or not, I'd love to see.  And if you're one of those working on projects, cards or organizing for the new year, show us what you have going on.  We'd certainly love to be a little nosey.  
You'll have until 5 PM EST, on January 4th, 2012 to enter your blog(s) and photos to be entered for one of the FREE IMAGE giveaways.  Remember.. . . you may enter twice this time.

And don't forget the Sassy Cheryl's challenge is also running for 2 weeks, so I hope you'll be able to join in the fun on that one too!
Merry Christmas everybody! 
Remember the REASON for the SEASON!  The birth of our Saviour!
See you in 2 weeks!

SHOW Me #55

Only 10 days until Christmas.  It's really coming, isn't it!  There's no stopping it now.  It's beginning to feel more like Christmas with it getting a little colder.  I like it though.  But right after Christmas, I'd like for it to get warm again. Think that will happen?  I'd say NO!  UGH!
Have you gotten everything ready for Christmas?  Is your tree all decorated?  Wreath on the door?  Lights on the house?  I only did wreaths on the windows this year with a spotlight.  I haven't been able to find a new wreath for the front door, so that may not happen this year.  Oh well.  That's life.

Well, let's get onto the winner and this weeks SHOW ME fun.  Thanks to everyone who played along.  Enjoyed seeing your Christmas projects, family photos, remodels and Sarah with her temptation of sweets.  She always does that to me.  Good thing you can't put on pounds just by looking at them.  We'd all be really huge!
This weeks lucky random winner of the FREE image was lucky #1.  
Jolanda.  That's you girl.  Congratulations!  I'll get your Free image credited to your account this morning.  Just drop me an email to make sure I have the correct email address for your account.

The fun little snowman and this little Sassy Sally cutie, will be available later on today.  So look for them in the store soon.
I started working on this sweet little gal a couple of weeks ago.  I figured it was time for something to celebrate the new year.  Can you believe that it will soon be 2012! WOW!  It's quickly approaching.  Can't do anything to stop it either. 

So, what are you doing this week.  You know I want to see.  Crafting, cleaning, baking, decorating?  It doesn't matter, just show me.  We love being nosey!  And I know you all do too.  LOL  We're bad, aren't we.
You'll have until 5PM EST, Wednesday, December 21st to link your blog or photo to be entered in the drawing for the FREE Sassy Cheryl's image.  It's really very simple.  So come and play along. . . .you know you want to.  Just show us already!  hee hee
Oh and don't forget about the WHITE ON WHITE, Blizzard challenge.  This is one of my favorite themes and I'd love to see what you do with it!
Have a great week.

Show Me #54

Only 17 more days until Christmas.  My, oh my, where did 2011 go?  Sorry the post is a little late.  We were out of town and I wasn't able to finish the post and the random winner until I got home this morning.
Thanks to everyone who played along last week.  I had some serious fun being nosey.  All the wonderful peeks, posts and photos.  They were great! Hope to see you again this week.
TRG chose #2 ask the lucky winner of the FREE image this week.  My sassy Shirley. . . .That's you!  I'll get the image credited to your account this morning.  No need for you to send me your email.  I know you only too well.  LOL!
Well, here's a little something that I've been working on.  I started him a couple of weeks ago.  You all know, I LOVE me some snowmen, but I have been SO busy since Thanksgiving that I haven't had much time to do any drawing.  I miss it!
He's still in the sketching phase, as I haven't quite gotten him the way I want him/her.  Pants?  No pants?  Jacket?  No jacket?  I just keep going back and forth.  Oh the joys of being an artist.  But, Oh how I love it!!!!!!!!!  Creating images for you to use gives me such pleasure.
So what are you doing this week?  Decorating?  Creating cards for Christmas or a special occasion?  Perhaps you're baking with the holidays coming up!  It doesn't matter. . . .we want to see.  It doesn't matter what it is.  We love being nosey, so come and play along.  It's for a FREE image, you know.
You'll have until 5 PM EST, Wednesday, December 14th to link your post or photo to be eligible for the random drawing.  It only takes a minute. . .and we'd LOVE to see.
See you there!

SHOW me #53

Well, we are officially in to the first week of December with only 24 days remaining until Christmas.  Can you believe it?  Soon Christmas will be over and we'll be moving on to 2012.  Where oh where did the time go?  Can someone please tell me?!?!?!?
I hope that those of you who were celebrating Thanksgiving had a wonderful time with friends and/or family and that you didn't eat too much turkey and pumpkin pie.  I did!  I'll be the first to admit it.  Christmas is the worst for me as far as snacking.  Better get out those 'elastic' pants.  LOL!

So, on to this weeks Show Me fun.

Thanks to everyone who played along last week. It was a BLAST!  Loved seeing what you were doing.  The Thanksgiving photos and the Christmas trees and your amazing cards and creations.  They were ALL fun!  Thanks also for the lovely comments you left about my family.  They were really sweet.  Thank you!

TRG chose #12 as the lucky winner for last weeks drawing.  And that lucky person was . . .
Congratulations!  Just drop me an email to ensure that I have the correct email address and I'll get the $10  Gift Certificate credit to your account.

I'm working on several images right now and didn't know which one to show you, so I've left it 'open'.  Do ya hate me? LOL

So, what do you think I'm working on this week?  Only time will tell.  Show me what you're doing though. I'd love to see.
You'll have until 5 PM EST on Wednesday, December 7th to show us what you have up your sleeve.
Link your blog or photo using Inlinkz to be entered in the drawing for the FREE image drawing.
Can't wait to see!
