Holly Jolly Blog Bingo … Day Fifteen

Holly Jolly Blog Bingo ... Day 15

NEWSFLASH:  I’m the Queen of Procrastination.  I am … really.  I never used to be, though.  I used to be the queen of schedules, lists, perfection, planning, everything done with days of time to spare … silver polished, linens washed and ironed, table set, etc..  What happened?  Where did that person go?  I’d really like for her to come back right now.  Maybe she’ll be wrapped nicely under my tree and return to me next year.

But as life would have it, my list today would probably rival Santa’s.

Grocery shopping …
Christmas shopping …
House decorating …
House cleaning …
Wrap presents …
Go to daughter’s for Christmas Eve dinner & a movie …
Back home to wrap more presents …
Go to bed for an hour …
Yada, yada, yada …

Does your list look like this too?  I sure hope not!  I’ve officially lost my mind !!!!

But first, without a doubt the highest priority of the day, is my visit with my Holly Jolly Blog BIngo friends! 

Okay … I can feel it in my bones … someone is really, really, close.  They have to be, you see, because I’m running out of words!  Either that, or you’ve all picked words from someone else’s list.

Are you ready?  Here goes!

THURSDAY’S WINNER …

Congratulations to

Karen in Ojai, CA

You’ve won the Paper Dollies. 

Send us an email with your address (hollyjollyblogbingo@thequiltshoppe.net) and we’ll get your prize right to you.

FRIDAY’S GIVEAWAY …

Today’s another double giveaway!  We have two more French General Pin Cushions. 

FRIDAY’S BINGO WORDS …

WASSAIL

POINSETTIA

SLEIGH BELLS

ICE SKATING

RIBBON

WHITE CHRISTMAS

LINENS

if you have a BINGO, leave a comment on today’s blog post shouting BINGO! … AND … send us an email (hollyjollyblogbingo@thequiltshoppe.net) telling us you have BINGO.  If someone calls it and another has it too, send in your info also.  Just as a double, triple, check … make sure you send your name and address in your email (don’t post it on the blogpost.)
