“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder


This is the first day for the twelve days of Christmas. I chose to give away a few small collectibles and as we go a few days in... even more surprises!  Stay with me as I will be selecting names from people signed up to receive my newsletter. It is a once a month letter (and I missed Sept and Oct this year... ) and it is short and sweet.  If you are not signed up... you need to do it. Never know as I grab a new name every day.

Today's winner is:

Romi Maegli Bauer from Guatemala.   I am so excited because Romi actually flew to Texas to spend five days painting with me back in 2012.  She is so talented with color and composition... and I hope one day to spend time again painting with her!  BUT... I get to send her Survival this next week.  Love you Romi!

Tomorrow is Day Two in the 12 Days of Christmas Gift- Away.

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.  Luke 2:6

Blessings and be safe!  Laurie
