Holly Jolly Blog Bingo … Day Nine

Holly Jolly Blog Bingo ... Day Nine

Good morning!
It’s Saturday …
It’s pouring …
and it’s a special, special day at the Padilla house.

Our “little guy” turns 11 today :)  I asked him this morning if he could just stop … growing, that is.  He was so sweet … he told me he would if he could. 

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANDREW!

SATURDAY’S BINGO WORDS …

PUMPKIN PIE

MENORAH

CANDY CANE

WHITE ELEPHANT

JOY

ANGEL

YULE

And in honor of Andrew’s 11th Birthday, here’s 4 more words :)

love

celebration

party

snowball

friday’s winners …

Congratulations to

Sara in Claremont, NH

and

Diane in Mt. Juliet, TN

You are the winners of the Califon fat quarter bundles.  Send us an email with your address (hollyjollyblogbingo@thequiltshoppe.net) and we’ll get your bundles right out.

 

saturday’s giveaway …

We have another double giveaway today …

21 assorted strands of Cosmo Embroidery Floss

Two lucky players will win this assortment!  I absolutely love this floss and these colors are perfect for you Fall and Christmas projects.

 

project parade …

At the end of the Bingo Game, I’d love to do a couple of posts of special Christmas projects you’ve been working on.  They don’t have to be quilty … they can be crafty … or maybe a special recipe … or a tablescape … or a decorating idea … a special tradition … etc. 

So, here’s what to do …

Send us pics of any of the above, which is really just about anything you’ve been doing, and we’ll begin to put together a blog parade to post after our Bingo game is over.  If you want to include instructions or recipes, that would be great.  Include your name, where you are from, a description, and pictures.  You can send them to hollyjollyblogbingo@thequiltshoppe.net.  In the subject line please put:  PARADE.

I wanted to say “thank you” to everyone for your kind comments about my hand.  It feels a bit better and I’m starting to use it a bit more.  And, yes, everyone please be careful in the kitchen this next week!

Only one word for me today: white elephant. Which is absolutely fitting because I went to a cookie exchange where we also had a white elephant gift exchange! (I got an unlit, side-melted candle and a fancied up roll of toilet paper...I took a gift set of Axe body sprays that my hubby recieved as a gift and we both agreed smells like the Palmolive with Oxy dishwashing soap next to my kitchen sink!)
