BLOG CANDY(s) and an Announcement

First, Alex (California Stampin') is offering some yummy "wrapped" blog candy for 7500 hits ("wrapped" as in we'll find out what it is later - but she promises it will be good, and I know it will be!) Check it out here. Congratulations, Alex!

Second, I noticed that my counter turned over 15 000 hits today! Thank you all so much for visiting! I will be putting up some blog candy this weekend, so please come back to enter for your chance to win!

Third, I've been feeling like I'm burning the candle at both ends, so to speak, and I've had to do a lot of thinking and praying about how to spend my time so I don't burn out and drive my family insane! So with that in mind, I have decided that I need to cut back a bit on my blogging (*sob*). I've been trying to post every day and check out others' blogs every day, but it's just taking up too much time (I am a SAHM, so I should probably spend some time with my kids! LOL!). Anyway, I'll only be posting a couple of times a week and blog surfing on weekends. So I do hope you'll continue to check in with me. I appreciate all the encouragement I receive from all of you in Blogland! And if you don't hear from me on your blogs during the week, I haven't forgotten about you, and I will be visiting on weekends! Thanks again for your support and understanding!

Hi Shannon! Thanks for your comments on my blog. I totally agree with you that blogging takes a lot of time away from your family. I've also had to cut back on blogging and crafting because of this. So of course we all understand and will keep visiting you!!

I think we're all in the same boat and my blogging will definitely slow down the closer it gets to Christmas! Hope you enjoy the holiday season with your family! ;)

As you can probably tell from my few and far between posts lately, I've been experiencing the same feeling of being 'stretched too thin'. I'm slowing down for at least the next month and then it will be the Valentine whirlwind! I'm amazed at how well you do manage it all... I'm not sure I'm doing as well, but I'm certainly trying!!

Happy happy Christmas,
so glad to have you to chat with
