ANNOUNCING

Earlier this week sweet Kat at Heart 2 Heart interviewed me.....hop over to her blog and read a little more about the Holdiday Decorating Business.

ANNOUNCING....THE HOLIDAY BLOG
Be sure and read the story behind the Blog Name

I still have some pictures to add, but I wanted to give you a preview of where I will be posting most days BEGINNING in early September.
Leave a comment and become a follower and you will not miss a post! The first 100 followers and commenter's, will be eligible for a drawing on October 1. There will be 4 winners!!! The winners will have some Christmas ornaments coming their way.

Grab my button and give others a chance to get some tips, or hear Faith Hill sing, or just because you are my friend. Also stop by and tell Leslie that you love the design. Her button is on the blog and she has been so great to work with. I literally shared my vision of the blog, telling her about the name and its "family history" and she made it work. Thank you Leslie!!!

Blogging is a totally new venture for me. It is my heart to HELP and to GIVE and in the process make some wonderful friends.
When I look at the number of followers I have, I am truly amazed and humbled. I really have no idea how that happened. I am not an especially good writer. I write just like I talk and sometimes that does not make for the best grammar or punctuation. For whatever reason, I love you for reading my blog and I love reading yours.

Everyone does have a STORY! And if you are new here,I would love to hear yours. And do not think for a minute that you have heard the last family/grammy story! That is my passion!!!!!




***REMEMBER if you write about my blog or link to my blog, you will go in a drawing for the personal consultation. Then for everyone that comments this week,..and you can comment as many times as you want,ask questions,etc..... YOU will be entered in another drawing for a SPECIAL HOLIDAY TREAT. Parker will draw for both of these this Friday,August 28th.

Nice to "meet" you..what a wonderful profile.
You, too, are a blessing!
Have a great week ...

Jess said...

You are such a busy woman and always giving! I love it.

I do have a question. When you said to put the balls on the tree in the middle, do you mean to push the ball onto the limb all the way back to the back?

Lots of love
Jess
