Which is sadder — the fact that this was my Christmas present or the fact that I was EXCITED about it?

Win a Set of Eco-friendly Gift Bags! CLOSED


This year I have to say my Christmas gifts were probably the most beautiful ever because I wrapped the ones I could with eco-friendly handmade gift bags I found on Etsy.  They are very affordable and not to mention you are saving the environment by not using paper bags!  Everyone I gave a gift in one of these bags had a fit and they wanted to know where they came from.  Marilyn Mac Originals is the Etsy seller who creates these beautiful bags.  She also makes purses, shawls, and other accessories.  You definitely need to order right now because they are 20% off!

I am so excited because Marilyn is giving away a set of her bags to one lucky Write Gal reader.  Simply go to her shop and tell me in a comment the Group # of the set you would like if you win.  You can choose one of her Christmas designs to use for next year or an everyday set for cute birthday gifts.  For an extra three (3) entries, you can blog about this post but please let me know in three (3) separate comments that you did so because the winner will be selected randomly.  The contest is open to U.S./APO addresses only please.   Contest ends at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, January 5th.

Good Luck!

Merry Christmas Baby!


Our family was so excited at the birth of Jackson, our new little cousin who was born on Christmas Day!  Proud parents are Keith & Cathy.  Baby Jackson joins big brother Scott and big sister Jessi.  You can read Cathy’s blog here or there is a link to her on my blogroll.  We can’t wait to see baby Jackson in person!  What a cutie!

I hope I have some readers left….

The good news is I survived teaching my first semester of college. The bad news is I got sick shortly thereafter. I am not talking about just a little sick but the I am in the bed with a wretched stomach virus unable to move sick.  Then with doing ALL of my Christmas shopping at the last minute combined with the holidays, unfortunately my blog has been the one to suffer. So I hope I still have some readers left.  Maybe at least one?  Does my Mom count?  From here on I pledge to post at least twice per week.  I have got to get on over to MomDot.  I bet they have surely fired me as a contributing writer by now.

Here’s to me being a better blogger in 2009!  If you are still one of my few readers, THANK YOU!  🙂
