The most wonderful time of the year!

Getting ready, so much to do, places to go & people to see! The winner for the 1st giveaway will be announced Saturday, YAY! Thank- you for all the great comments feed back and kind words! I apologize for not responding to each and everyone of you as I hoped but, the results have been wonderful &  overwhelming!

In the middle of all his madness I homeschool my children and 6th & 7th grade oh pre-algebra what fun! Also been doing all my orientation, paperwork & tests to volunteer at the hospital gift shop where I was born & my grandma has been volunteering for 36 years(and going strong)!  I actually got to spend a few wonderful days Christmas shopping with my daughter. mom & grandma this weekend it has been wonderful to spend time together. I can only imagine what people in the stores think of us, we like to have a good time :) 4 generations of loud laughing Italian women! This makes the horrible cross country move worth every minute of sweat & tears.

I apologize for not having much up for sale the past week had to take a breather and not neglect my family. But this weekend I will be loading up the new etsy shop so get  ready :) I will only be listing a few things now & then on eBay it has been good to me in the past but the fees, policy changes and sporadic at best sales are not working out, I at least need to break even, & you busy bees know what I'm talking about :) So etsy has been a wonderful change and I am happy to be there.
