Puppy News, Winners and Questions answered

Hi everyone!  It's been crazy busy here at my house.  We're all off school and work right now so you think things would be quiet.  But, we got a new puppy on Saturday!  She'll be 12 weeks old on Thursday and life is just crazy now!  But she's so adorable :)  She's a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel mixed with Bijon Frise.  Here's a picture:

I was going to draw a winner tomorrow from the Cricut Crawl, but decided to do it today!  Plus, I hit over 400 followers--thank you!--and decided to draw a second winner!  I picked up a 12x12 Nana's Kitchen Stack for my second winner.  I'll probably do another giveaway after the 1st of the year--my life is just crazy now to do shopping for a big giveway.

Now--on to the winners!

The winner of the Gingerbread Cartridge is:

Love it! I really like the frosted look on the glass block. It set the tone for your whole project. TFS!

I'll try to contact you both, but try to email me at the contact on the right.

I did have a few questions about the blocks.  Someone asked how the lights went in.  Well, I buy the blocks with a hole already in them from Hobby Lobby and it has a cap on one side which I make the bottom.  My husband cuts a slit in so the light cord sticks out o.k.  Here's a picture:
And I was also asked what I used for the cuts.  It's vinyl.  I had purchased this vinyl a few years ago and just now got around to using it.  But Cricut has vinyl and at Hobby Lobby, there was another brand of vinyl near the cricut set up.  There's ton to choose from!

I have a DT post tomorrow and then I probably won't blog the rest of the week.  I'm getting a Cake Mini tomorrow, but then Thursday I'm taking my daughter to a Justin Bieber concert--please pray that I can hear on Friday after being around the screaming girls--LOL!

Have a very Merry Christmas!

  2. Congrats to the winners!

    Nothing like a new puppy to remind you what it's like to have a newborn! lol Our boys got their puppy last year at about the same age (12 weeks) for Christmas! It's amazing how much he's grown and become a part of our family in just one short year! Enjoy!

  3. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I'm so excited!!!

    I just wanted to say your puppy is SO CUTE!!! I have ALWAYS wanted a king charles cavalair spaniel. I worked at a vet for years and that was always my favorite bread. They have the BEST personalities ever. I'm sure this is going to make you such a WONDERFUL companion. And PLEASE make sure to post lots of puppy pic's for us to get to see :-)
