A fun day and my Christmas gift

Hi everyone,

Finally I am getting time to update my blog.Things have been crazy since Christmas but finally I am getting things back to normal or as normal as they can be for me...LOL.Today was a very fun day for me.I got to meet one of my Facebook friends Susie Hamill from Yankee Lane Primitives.We met at Diana Gaines' shop Splinters and Rags.I have known Diana for years and Susie had an order for Diana and she told her she would deliver it in person.We had a good time talking and laughing and Susie and I did some shopping.Susie is so sweet and fun.She is just as sweet and nice in person as she is online!In the picture Diana is in the brown jacket,I am in the middle in blue(but just don't look at me and my fat) and Susie is standing,she is in the black shirt.It was a fun day and I hope she will be able to come back to my area sometime so we can do some more talking,laughing and prim shopping.

I also wanted to post a picture of my Christmas gift from my sweet hubby.He went to Diana's shop and told her that I had been going on about wanting a make-do chair and that he had no idea what it was but if she would make one he would buy it so Diana and her husband Gary made one for Mark.They all kept this secret from me and Mark had even picked it up a few days before Christmas and had put it in his storage building.We exchange Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve and I thought he was crazy when he handed me the building keys and told me to go open the building and he was following me with the camera.I knew it wasn't a new car because it would have to be a tiny car to be out in the building.I was so surprised when I pulled that big lawn bag off and saw a make-do chair.I let out a scream!He really had been listening to me when I go on about things that I want...LOL.It is just perfect!The perfect size and color.I put it in my family room but I am still in the process of decorating it.I am going to put a doll in it and with all the dolls I have nothing looks right so I am going to make a doll just for my make-do chair.I had a great Christmas and was very pleased with my gift!If you want a really nice make-do chair then get in touch with Diana and Gary Gaines Splinters and Rags.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and a Happy New Year!I am hoping that 2011 will be a great year for us all!

Prim hugs,
