Today there was a ring at my door I was not expecting anyone we are having bad weather freezing rain and just a big mess out there right now.  Everything that I can remember that I had ordered as been delivered as far as I can remember lol you know I just had a birthday so umm I am entitled to have short spurts of memory lost.  Any who I went to see who was at the door no one there that only meant that the mail carrier has left a package outside.  Sure enough there it was a box not just any box but a box just for me all the way from Austrailia from one of my best blogging buddies Sandi http://bearlysaneaust.blogspot.com/  Sandi had a giveaway and I was the Winner!  Look at my goodies eat your hearts out ladies lol

 Beautiful Hat I just love it!
 Who in this world doesn't love BUTTONS!

 Now if you could ever describe me in fabric this would be it!  I love this fabric it has my style and all of my favorite colors!  Hmmm I might be making a pillow for my bed from this. 
 Now this is what is really surprising also this is not only my favorite flower but my favorite scents Peonie and Rose gosh I'm such a Lucky Woman
 Anyone who knows me knows how much I love love note cards.  I feel as though people have become so impersonal these days no one hardly ever writes a letter or even send out cards but I do lol

 A Bear Pattern yes a Bear Pattern I have made only two bears in my life  and they both were large jointed bears, we made in doll class about 12 years ago lol.  Sandi I am up for the challenge.  I am going to do my best in making this bear.  I love bears and rabbits and have been wanting for so long to make a rabbit doll.  I have rabbits here and there throughout my house but not one rabbit have I ever made.  My muse has awakened lol
Have a great day all
Peace and Blessings

I know I know it's been a few since I last posted.  I have been busy with this and that and a lot of Blog surfing.  It is bad of me I know please forgive me.  A brand new year and soon my birthday will be here, I am a little excited about it for some reason *shrugs* So much has happened over the past year I truly look forward to a new and better year.

I don't bother making new year promises I don't feel like beating myself up if I don't live up to them.  I just strive to make each day better than the one before.  I had a wonderful holiday how about you?  Well I have been trying for a few months to have a giveaway for my 100th follower and so far that hasn't happened but my plans are still there to have one when it does happen.  Sewwwww as Madame Samm would say this month is my Blog anniversary  along with my Birthday so for that I am going to have a Celebration on my blog.  Sew I guess your sitting there saying okay now what is Cheryl up to.  Well to answer your question I am going to Celebrate by giving away some of my favorite things   wow I just had a Oprah moment lol.  No I am not going to give away a car, trip, furs, or send a decorator to your house for a makeover but instead I am going to give away some of things that make me smile you know like I always say "Snatch Joy".  So on my Birthday January 15th I will be drawing a name from my list of followers as of right now I have 89 it will only be those 89 people who have been following me for sometime now. 

Okay some might be saying well that is not fair but hey all the new followers can join in on my 100th giveaway.  I have become blogging friends with some really cool Ladies over the past year I want each of you to know how much I appreciate having you there for me.  Also, I am thinking about having a selling blog and trying my hand at selling a doll on Ebay "which I said I would never do again" but oh well never say never lol.

Anyway what are some of your favorite things?  Come on share them with me.  Have a wonderful day all

Peace and Blessings
