Bye Bye 2013

It is so weird to me.

I was born in the 70's and anything that started with 2000 was so unreal to me.

Yet here we are saying bye to 2013.

I have so many ideas for 2014,
so many things floating around in my head 
that I have actually put on paper.

I hope I get to do each and every one of them.

2013 was by far an interesting year for me,
so many changes, and although they didnt always feel good to me
I know they are necessary.

Bloggers are you ready????

Well after all the Christmas hoopla that is how I feel

Just sigh....

I use to hear my Grandma talk about how it would come and go so quickly.
As a kid I didn't believe her LOL
as an is so true!

My FAAP team had a secret Santa gift swap.

My secret santa was Karen from Red Dirt Primitives.

This is what I got...

Photo: My FAAP team members are the BEST!!! Karen Riggs is the BEST secret santa ever!! Thank you Karen I LOVE it!!!! Such talent!!!! 
That sunflower is so amazing!!!! And look at that little snowman santa.
Do you see the angel stitchery in the middle.
One of my favorite scriptures. My grandma had that hanging in the house I grew up in..the Lord just put it on karen's heart for me.  Oh He is so good.
I also was so blessed in winning a snowman from Brenda at The Rusty Thimble 
 isnt he just the best!!!

Both of these people are FAAP team members and do excellent work!!! 

I am working on an upcoming giveaway for Valentines day!!

Enjoy your family, friends, and Most of all the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
 and the government shall be upon his shoulder
, and his name shall be called
 Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 
~Isaiah 9:6
He is the Greatest gift that has ever been given!!
The most wonderful gift to receive.
