CCRAL Winners For Sept 19 and CA Winners for Sept 26

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongEach passing day gets us closer and closer to Christmas and I keep thinking how will I get the 3 wedding gifts I need to make by then done plus all of my Christmas gifts. This past weekend, I was unpacking a few of the boxes that have just been sitting in the living room for a bit. These boxes turned out were boxes that were packed in Germany for our move to Italy and then never unpacked. I found some beautiful cashmere shawls I’d purchased while we lived there and had been visiting the Czech Republic that weekend. It was a fun trip to Prague that I really fell in love with, an old city, with so much history and gorgeous buildings and statues. If you have the opportunity to go to Prague I’d recommend it highly. Anyway, about the shawls, they were originally intended for Christmas gifts, so now I’ve found part of my Christmas gifts for this year. It will be exciting to be able to finally give them away. I’m sad that I had forgotten about them, but am happy they have been found.

On The 7th Day of Christmas…the Christmas Caroling Row Along…

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongIn today’s featured hops we get to see everything from donkeys, to reindeer, to snowmen, and beautiful stars…

It’s a fun day for sure and everyone will laugh, smile, ewww and awww and then perhaps want to drink a cup of hot chocolate… I know for me, when I look at today’s rows, I want to head on down the stairs and make me a cup.. as much as I love coffee, I also love hot chocolate. It’s been quite cool here the last week or so, the fans have been turned off, I’ve even said to Frank, time to put the fans away (I’m not an air conditioning kind of gal, we never turned it on even once this summer), and while I will turn the heat on, it’s usually to just protect the pipes, I prefer to have the heat on only in the rooms I am in, so I have heaters all over my home that I turn on as I enter and turn off when I leave. My hubby likes this better also because he can do without them, and thus he gets to have the room at the temperature he wants except when I’m in the room with him. Either or, today’s rows make me want to run on down and make a cup of hot chocolate before I go to bed tonight… and soon, oh yes… Eggnog… it will be eggnog season and I will be in heaven. I love love love Eggnog… but only a glass a day, otherwise, it’s just to much. This is such a fun time of year, as we do head into the Halloween season, then Thanksgiving, and Christmas, all the smells of the season, and the fun taste treats we get to enjoy of the season all come into play. This year there is furniture in my home, all my Christmas ornaments and decorations are here with us, and it should be a fun time in the Pena home. I haven’t looked forward to decorating in over 15 years, so this year will be a treat. yes indeed… so, lets get on with today’s bloggers, and then I’ll go get some hot chocolate…

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongHard to believe it’s been two weeks since the start of the Row Along, and so many great rows have come… and are still coming… Today, four more wonderful rows for you to feast your eyes upon.

Last week, I changed things with the bloggers and designers, that is an important change, if you haven’t been reading these posts, and wondered why some of the downloads are no longer there, it is because I’ve asked the bloggers to expire there downloads after one week. The rows in which designers have decided will remain free can still be downloaded.

CCRAL Giveaway Winners For Sept 07 + Calibre Art For Sept 14

Christmas Caroling Row Along

Christmas Caroling Row AlongHello Again Everyone… it takes me quite some time to draw the names and notify all the winners, but today I did manage to get started on it early in the day. So, here are the winners for last Thursday, September 07, 2017 and Calibre Art Winners for September 14, 2017.

Let me note, the Calibre Art giveaways are a 50% off coupon. At Amazon, some of these mats are already on sale at 50% off, and you do get the additional 50% off of the current sale price, so a mat that might cost 100.00 discounted by 50% off is around 50.00, plus your additional discount of 50% off makes that mat just $25.00.

Several of you have passed on the mats, and that’s fine, Continue reading
