Prize Drawing Winner Announced

Hi friends. Sorry for the delay on the prize winner announcement. The girls each had a BIG Science test to study for last night....I was scurrying to finish up the 12 girly gifts.....and then this happened:
A little scary looking right? It's our beloved Boots. He wanders between our house and the neighbor's house about a half mile down the road. He eats there and sleeps in her nice warm barn. Then he comes homes and eats here and likes to get lots of pets and a piece of bologna once in a while.

Last night Boots came home all a mess. He looked like he had been frosted in mud and then baked in an oven. He was covered with dried on, packed mud. We don't know if he fell through some ice or tangled with a coyote. But I'm sure he might have used one of his nine lives yesterday. Whatever it was, he was a pitiful sight. So. We had to give him a bath. Not fun for Boots. Not fun for us. We sat him over the drain in the garage and poured about 20 pitchers of warm water over him. He shook water all over and ran away.
But we finally got him somewhat cleaned up. Still not looking very happy after his bath. We gave him a nice warm pillow to lay on and this morning he was all dry and fluffy again. But he peed on Eric's hunting coveralls. Eric won't be one bit happy about that.
Soooooo. Today is back to normal. I'm wrapping up the last of the gifts, tidying up the house and am just waiting for little, excited red heads to make it through their half day of school. Then the FUN begins! WooHoo!!!

And here's some fun....the announcement of my prize drawing winner. It's Maureen!!! Congratulations. Maureen, I found your email address and sent you a message. :) Thanks to everyone for your nice comments. I'll be absent more with the holidays but I'll pop in here and there with some fun stuff!

Hi, Michelle. Thanks for all these great days of inspiration. I loved it all, but especially the "Be Mine" heart tags - great colors and too cute. THanks again and have a blessed Christmas.

Now there is a well loved fur ball! Poor guy though..I truly wonder what adventures he has had this week! If only they could talk. He needs to go and curl up in front of that wonderful cozy fireplace and just chill.
Hope the girls did well on their science test! Have a wonderful Christmas!

Poor Boots! A winter evening bath couldn't be fun for a kitty but he is lucky to have all of you to care for him! Have a very Merry Christmas!

Poor Boots! I laughed out loud when I saw his pix. Too funny peeing on the overalls. He got blamed for all the drowning and scrubbing he put poor Boots through! My cat Hamish peed in my husbands' shoe as he scolded Hamish. I think that means screw you in cat! Hee hee
Merry Christma!
