thankful

Thursday, November 22, 2012

I'd like to thank you for stopping by.  If it has been once, you're a new reader or someone that has been popping in for a long time.  It has meant so much to me.  Even through this last year.  You really are special.  I feel blessed. Heck, you are the reason for the chalkboard place mats!

I'd love to give away three sets of the chalkboard placemats.  Leave a comment between now and Tuesday, November 27, 5pm, EST and I'll have the random generator number choose a few of names.  You'll have them in plenty of time to use on your Christmas table.  And all year long for other things.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

xx,
leslie
