YAY!!! Here we go. What a cool contest you guys are doing. I'm checking my words . . .

Oh, and I'd love to be the lucky winner of today's giveaway. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Laurie Grant said...

Yippee! I got one checked off my list. That's not a bad start!

Crafty Maine Mom said...

My tree has an angel on top and a grinch underneath.

Grandma Nell said...

Here we go!! I got two (2) words crossed off today - which isn't very good odds, since there were seven (7) I could have gotten...

Hopefully, I'll get more tomorrow! Can't wait!

My 'angel' and 'Little Drummer Boy' are trying to work together to make that old 'Grinch' feel the holiday spirit this year.

Woohooo, nice start for me with three words today.

Dyed Grey said...

This is working out well -- wake up, grab a cuppa, check my words, peek at the goodies, get dressed, go to work. Score! (Welll .. all except that last part ....) :)

Cindi said...

What a fun idea! Great thinking, it never ceases to amaze me the clever things bloggers come up with. Love it. I got 1 word today.

LyndaG said...

Since I finally put some trees around the house, I suppose 'grinch' as a match is appropriate.

Nate & Millie said...

No matches today...how sad! Hopefully tomorrow I'll get all 7!!!

Jan in TN said...

I got two words today! I don't think Grinch went to church until he went skiing down to Whoville and met that angel Cindyloo Who. There they decorate the town Christmas tree and sang songs while the Little Drummer Boy Who par rum pa pa pummed. The End. (I am already having fun with this!)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

How can I possibly NOT HAVE any of the words? Oh well, I'll have all seven tomorrow!!

Yippee - I got some words today!!

What a cool pattern for Day One's giveaway from Quilted Quickies.

There is more than one angel on my tree, standing tall by the fireplace - and a Cindy Lou Who ornament from The Grinch adorns it..

A homemade stuffed church from my daughter from many years ago also decorates our tree but no Little Drummer Boy and no one skiing on my tree. LOL
