Feeling Loved, and blessed & Winners announced

Good Afternoon friends
Wow what a wild day of weather we had yesterday

As I know many others did also
Hope you are safe and warm

Sorry I am late in announcing the February Blog Giveaway

One set of Rabbit Bowl Fillers will go to 

and another set will go to 

congrats on winning and thank you to all who signed up

I have reopened my Etsy shop
I have to figure out how to adjust to a schedule to 
still work and I think I have it figured out !!
I am wrapping up the final orders I have now
And sending out some elves too :o)

I think Daddy is just head over heels in Love with Lilly 
this just warms my heart, he is so amazing with her

Today is the first time I have not gone in to visit with
mom, due to the ice on the roads
And I have to confess I laid back and napped this morning
in my recliner? I think I was just worn out *sigh*

Saturday was beautiful here in the 70's
My son was bringing his little family down 
but last I heard on Friday they cancelled due to the 
weather predictions for Sunday
But low and behold Saturday after I came home 
from spending the morning with mom, he called
and they were almost to her place so I turned around
What a Wonderful surprise, she was so shocked and 
thrilled to meet Little Lilly 

The visit was short but they had a special event to 
attend Saturday evening, So needless to say I spent 
Sunday pacing the floor knowing they were traveling 
on ice back home, they made it safely Thank the Lord
it was a long stressful trip for them

And now I want to brag just a little, as many of you know
a year ago I started an etsy selling team
And let me tell you these gals are amazing
knowing that I had been going through some rough times
having to cancel so many orders 
*I still apologize to all the many customersthat I had to cancel on* 
and I almost opted to 
give up my business, wondering how I would juggle it 
and caring for mom too
The team members rallied together have sent me so many
wonderful sweet cards and gifts

This is only part of them, I thank you FAAP members
for being the greatest team there is, so supportive of 
each other and always so helpful and considerate!
I am so proud to be on this team
I even got gifts for Lilly

I will be adding a new giveaway for March sometime
this evening so jump back over to see what 
I will offer next

Now I have an afternoon date with a box of chocolates
Charlotte I hope your friend found help to get to safety 
last night, thank you for helping me gain some of the 
pounds back I have been loosing *Sigh*

Thank you to all for the wonderful comments and
messages, love my followers
Have a Wonderful Day
Spring will be here soon
