A Couple Gifts and Prizes to Share

Morning!!! We sure had a snowy weekend! 7 inches fell on Saturday and now tonight we are suppose to get up to 5 more and I just heard up to 6 more on Wednesday. This Alberta Clipper isn't only bring snow but frigid temps! Friday morning it is suppose to be around -5 with a high of only 5-7. Yikes! Well the snow is good because my daughter and her boyfried decided to try a new hobby...snowshoeing. So, they ordered snowshoes from REI and are hoping the snow stays until the 22nd of January when they can pick up those snowshoes. I have always wanted to try snowshoeing...maybe a good Christmas gift for me and hubby this coming Christmas.

During the craziness of December I did a Christmas swap and won a blog giveaway. I want to share some pics with you today. (They didn't load in the order I thought but it will have to do today).

First the Christmas swap...I swapped with Angie from Sandals and Daisies. Angie is such a sweet friend. I am so sorry I couldn't get more pics...I was in such a hurry with everything going on!


I love elves!!! This cute little elf she made for me! Thank you Angie!!! I'm sorry for the blurry pic, I really do need a new camera!

This how pretty the box she sent me looked like.
Next, I won a giveaway from Heather at Hopscotch & Hydrangeas. This snowman is sooo cute and you can find earrings like these in her Etsy shop!

I love these earrings!!! So pretty! Thanks so much Heather!!!

Isn't he cute!?!

I hope you all keep warm and have a wonderful day! I am trying my bestest to work on some winter and Valentine's to share with you all! My upstairs is in desperate need of cleaning! If anyone had a medical emergency upstairs, I'd have to drag them by their feet downstairs so the emergency crew didn't have to see the mess! (Bad I know and of course I am joking...a little!)
Hugs!
Kim

Hi Kim! I'm chilled just thinking of those temps!brrr Hope you are staying warm. I am laughing because one day our alarm company called and said there was a signal at our house and my first thought was don't send the cops in before I get there to close my daughter's bathroom and bedroom door!!! I can relate to what you said! I wasn't worried about anything else!lol Thank you my daughter was ok on the roads the other night and I hope your hubby was too! Love that elf with your initial; so cute. The earrings inspired me to get my beading stuff out! I'm supposed to be doing laundry right now so off I go! Have a warm evening; sounds like a good night for hot choc and a book!!! Take care, Jeannette

Very cute swap items... especially love prize won those earrings! Hope it stays cold for the snowshoeing, it's 81 degrees here and I'm having a little Spring fever. So understand about the upstairs situation, it's like that in my office... keep repeating, a work in progress ;)

Hi Kim, Happy New Year! I just read you Disney post, what a airport horror story. But you got there all in one piece.
Our lawn is covered with snow, but not as much as what you have.

Hi Kim!! What a sweet elf and snowman! I have a prize and some awards I hope to post about soon..like you, they happened when it was a crazy Christmasy time!

Whoa--you guys will have snow to your rooftops before long! We've got very cold temps (not as cold as yours!)--it was 4 this a.m. and will be colder in the next few days. I really, really hate the cold! I guess it just makes the Spring warmth seem so much better when it gets here!

I loved your list of things done on your previous post. My life is purdy boring when I see what I HAVEN'T done on that list--it was fun to see what YOU have experienced!

Stay warm and healthy! L, Dana

Heather said...

You are so sweet! I am so glad you liked the snowman and the earrings!!
It sounds like you are getting the same weather we are!! Not fun at all! The snow is pretty but I am over this cold- and it hasn't even reached the lowest yet. My poor husband has to work out in it! Oh April! April, where are you??? LOL!!
Heather:)
