Long post ahead.  
Keep reading.  
This post is full of crafts, 
and a special surprise!
and HERE we go...

Hey everyone!  Oh my goodness, it's been so long since my last post.  Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas!  I am sure everyone got everything they needed. =)  I was definitely spoiled this Christmas from my honey.  He knew my old laptop (a gift from him) was getting restless and rusty.  So what did he do?  Get me a Mac Pro!  Ahhh this laptop is just like heaven.  So smooth and quick, I love it!  I am still getting used to it and still installing and transferring files but it's great. He's Just Perfect!

This last week or so I took a break from blogging/crafting/pinning.   I wanted to take a long break from everything and just spend time with my family and my fiance!  Trust me I missed it.  Whenever I got a vision of a craft or an idea I had to quickly draw a picture so I wouldn't forget it.  But anywho I am back and with a new craft and a giveaway to start the New Year.         Woo Hoo!

I'll start with the craft.  The craft is.. (drum roll please)

I love to hear from you. =)  Okay Okay don't twist my arm!  For starting the New Year and as a peace offering for missing a week of not posting I will post this up for FREE.  Yes for FREE..( that's my surprise) but only until 5pm today EST.  So make sure you grab it before it's too late.  I do ask if you download, please be my newest follow of my store and my blog.  That's my "catch". =)  Not too bad.

A Fabulous bloggy gal of mine over at  Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher just reached 1000 followers and is having an awesome giveaway.  I am participating and donating my New Year's Craftivity.  Stop on over and check out her blog.  It's adorable with some very awesome ideas!

Okay so now moving on to my very OWN fabulous giveaway.  I have been wanting to do this forever.  I reached 600 followers and wanted to have a bunch of my fellow bloggers participate.  Since I have been so busy with the holidays I never got around to planning it.  So I am going to keep it simple.  This giveaway I will be giving away a 20$ Giftcard to Amazon.  And I will also be donating my New Year's Craftivity Packet along with my Dental Health Packet.  My way of celebrating the New Year is by giving!  Sounds like Christmas huh?
