CANDY CANE SANTA

As with most of you.... finding the time to blog and do a days work is becoming most difficult.... especially since the Christmas holiday is just around the corner. Now.... I am not sure what proper blogger edict is....I do read my follower's blogs faithfully....and comment regularly....however.... lately it hasn't been everyday....Oh the guilt one feels....I know some of you feel as I do. Please know I truly appreciate each and everyone of you and eventually I will catch up with all of you....my dear sweet blogging friends. This photo is of a canvas painting.... titled "Candy Cane Santa" by Lori Brechlin of Not Forgotten Farm. I entered Lori's giveaway and unbeknown to me I won! A week had gone past since I had last visited Lori's blog and the winner announced ...ME! See....I was playing blog catch up.... Lori's blog is one of the first primitive blogs I discovered and a favorite. I am in awe of her art and creativity and someday hope to visit Not Forgotten Farm and meet Lori in person. So....Lori thank you for my wonderful prize.... it will hold a place of honor in our humble home. Now.... off to begin the Christmas shopping....oh and Winslow Homers weekly date with Dr. Rust....

What a wonderful give-away win! Lori has more talent in her little finger than I have in my entire body...LOL!
I was lucky to win a give-away today, too. What a great way to start the week.

You win so much stuff! You must be the luckiest person ever! I read her blog and I thought I read it every day so how did I miss that. That is so awesome. Good for you. Julie, I think everyone understands holidays and being busy. I know I do, :)
So enjoy your holidays! No guilt from me.

What a beautiful prize! And I know exactly how you feel. It's a busy time at work for me and at home, trying to get everything organized and ready for Christmas; I barely have any time to sit at the computer. Part of me can't wait for the quietness of January!

Be well ~Andrea~

Enjoy yours!

Lucky girl! I love Lori's blog too and have you ever visited Robin's Millstone Mercantile blog - she is Lori's "partner" at her shop. Looks like you are getting in the holiday spirit. Happy days, Dawn

Don't feel bad about anything. It truly does get hard with working, cleaning, shopping. Relax and take care of Winslow and all your Christmas errands. That's what is most important. Have a wonderful week!!

This is such a beautiful piece, truly lovely. I know what you mean about the time, working, taking care of young boys and running the household are ALL full time jobs, so I feel your pain on my end. BUT, I wanted to take this chance to wish you a peace filled and wonderful holiday season and a new year filled with blessings. Stop by my blog when things slow down and catch up, I don't get to post as much as I'd like either, so it works both ways :^)...Happy and Merry Holidays to you and your family. ~Vonnie (aka peacemom)

Good Morning Julie! Congratulations on your win! I get the guilts all the time over blogging but I just keep finding out that blogging pals are the ones that are the most understanding. We all just have some busy going on! Thinking about you Julie and Winslow too!

You're a lucky gal, winning one of Betty's door prizes from Lizzie's Ragg's too!
Maybe you should buy a lottery ticket. ;)

Hello Julie!
Congratulations on your win..what a wonderful prize and now I'm going to have to pop over and check out this creative lady's blog :) Oh boy do I know how you feel...I don't work out of the home and yet I can't seem to keep up with housework, baking, outdoor chores and blogging. I'm only now doing a little 'catch-up' and like you I feel really guilty! After reading your post I'm happy to learn that I'm not the only one going through this right now. I hope you're enjoying your weekend and managing to get a little 'you' time. Take care.
Maura :)
