I thought I'd give you all the official list of ladies who will be joining me this year. Most have blogs/websites and some don't, so I'll give links where I can.
My house is an official "MESS" right now.........understatement! With cleaning out comes the adventure of finding things you forgot you had. I'm slightly worried at the moment because I lost one of the gifts for my giveaway and it's worth $25..........yikes! I'm hopeful I'll find it, but if not, I still have everyone covered. I love doing this event......I wrap all the presents up way before and then I forget what they are, so it's like a real Christmas for me watching what everyone opens. I've created a "garage sale" room out of my guest room so that the ladies can feel like they get two adventures in one. They can play with the crafts and then do a little garage sale all in the same place.
Okay, enough about that, here's the list of fabulous attendees:
I can't do anything without my best bud Sandy of "521 Lakestreet"
My wondrously talented sister Jen of "Dog-Ma-Jen" I adore her!
Another adored friend Laura of "Decor to Adore"
Laura's extremely creative daughter Alyssa of "BlackSabeth" will be here, too.
One of my talented idols, Joanne of "Desert Mountain Bears".....egad she's amazing!
A new friend, and first time meeting, the talented Janice of "Wish you were here Mom" and "Booh Bears"
Another wonderful friend, Sharon of "Katydidit" and "Eclectic Junktion", sorry no blogs
My dear friend Loretta of "Short and Sweet" who is one of my most faithful attendees
I'm blessed to have CeeKay of "Thinkin' of Home" attending another one of my events
My dear friend Gail of "Gail Friend Designs" will be here
My neighbor from across the street, Sandi, will also be in attendance, sorry no blog
My lovely daughter, Abby, will once again be the official photographer and yes, she gets paid for this!
My ever loving, ever tolerant, and completely amazing husband will be here
And Moi, the official hostess who does the mostest!
We'll be noshing on lots of food and goodies. I make the entrees (Turkey and Ham) and everyone else brings either a side dish, dessert or beverages.
Lot's of fun to be had here, I do wish all my blogland friends could be here, too. Hopefully someday I'll get to meet you all........how fun would that be?
I want to give a huge thank-you, hug and shout out to those of you that helped me with the supplies for this event.
