12 Days of Christmas in Blogland - Day Two

On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me.................

Nope, I am not sending out any turtle doves either but I do have this chart from The Sweetheart Tree that I would like to give away. It is called the "The Golfer" Chubby Nutcracker. It includes the crystal Golf Ball bead.

You have until January 7th midnight (CST) to enter by commenting on this post only.

I will announce the winner on January 8th.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love Boxing Day. After all the activity on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day it is nice to have a day at home to do whatever I wanted to do. I don't particularly care for shopping so I am not one to take part in the numerous Boxing Day sales. We did go first thing this morning to Michaels however. My DH paints and Michaels have their canvases 60% off and with an additional 25% off on the total purchase he was able to buy 3 good size canvases for under $35.00. (That was too good of a deal to pass up). I bought some yarn for stitching dishcloths and few little items for giveaways and exchanges. After that we out for breakfast at Smitty's and then back home. I spent the rest of day stitching.

I finishing the stitching on the "Believe Tree" ornament and just need to add the beads and the star. I then pulled another M Design word tree ornament to work on - Imagine. One of my neices really loves these trees. Everytime I stitch one these she grabs it. She already announce to her siblings that she has dibs on the Believe Tree.

(By the way, for those that are curious, the thread I used for this is Weeks Dyeworks - Noel.)

All the best of the season to you all!!!!
