Award and Some Candy

Being a slave driver today, since I seem to have some more energy today...Doing house cleaning and dragging my son and niece down with me. :) My daughter comes in from college this evening and will be here for a week. CAN'T WAIT!! Have some things I meant to post a couple days ago, but the Post It note fell of my monitor and I forgot. Plus, I've slept since then and brain function sometimes seems to get wiped clean just by doing that. HAHAHA! Will hopefully get a card posted today.

Karen over at 6 Wacky Women left me this award a couple days ago. Thank you so much Karen! That's very sweet. I check out her (their) blog everyday; some gorgeous stuff there! We're supposed to pass it on to five people. This is the hard part.
Finally, Debbie is giving away some great candy on her blog Passion for Crafts to celebrate 12K visits. Nice candy Debbie!
EDITED TO ADD: FOR ANYONE WANTING TO SEND CHRISTMAS CARDS TO RECOVERING SOLDIERS
I knew I was forgetting something. Must not have turned brain completely on this morning.
There was an e-mail circulating around with an address to send Christmas cards to recovering wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital. I wanted to make sure it wasn't a fake, so called, and sure enough the address is incorrect and the lady gave me the correct addie.
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
Try to have all mail there by December 10. The cards will then be taken to Walter Reed Hospital and distributed. I think this is a very small thing we can do to let those soldiers know we appreciate what they have gone through.

Thank you so much! I am so honored... And I see we are in the same neck of the woods - we probably even shop the same craft stores!

Thanks for posting this and the address. I will be sending some cards. I agree this is just a little something that we can do for our troops. :0)
