A New Design and Some WINNERS!!

Good morning EVERYONE!
I hope your weekends were restorative! I got the best sleep I've had in weeks last night! We've had Strep and nasty cold germs in our home and I'm happy to see them all leaving!
I have a 'painting' friend that comes over every-once-in-a-while on a Friday and we 'paint the day away'! Lots of laughter and good hugs make both of us feel SO much better! What would the world be like without that special Girl Friend?!! She came over last Friday and we painted something I'd designed. I ran across a similar design somewhere but am unable to give credit as I can't remember where. I drew it up with measurements on a small piece of paper.....
I cut it our of 1x6 pine and 1x12 pine. 
I used my brad nailer to go ahead and put it all together. 
And then we painted our hearts out!
This is Barb my friend!
And here's our final pieces!
Hers is on the right and mine the left and hers turned out SO MUCH better than mine! We always get tickled 'cause we'll start with the same design and it ALWAYS ends up different (I need to make my 'eyes' a bit larger)! LOVE how they turned out!
Well, on with the winners!!
Thank you ALL so much for participating in my last blog Giveaway for the year of 2011!
I'm so blessed to have good people like yourselves who come by and give me a 'pat on the shoulder' for good work done. Let's admit it.......we all need that validation, right?! chose me 2 winners and they are:


I've got your addy's girls so just shoot me an email at and tell me which item you'd like to have!
Thanks again everyone for all of your sweet comments! I appreciate the new followers, too!
I'll have a FaceBook 'mystery' again in a few days so make sure you 'LIKE' my page (FB badge is on the right sidebar) so you can see when it comes up.......I'll let you know here, too!!!!
May you all have a wonderful Holiday Season!!
God Bless

Awww...such sweet little nativities...My niece and I used to get together and do a project once and a while - and it is amazing how two people following the same pattern/directions can come up with two totally different finished projects....Congratulations to Brenda and Nancy!!! And thanks again, Vicky, for another fun and generous giveaway!! Hope your week is off to a good start! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Hi, Vicky, I left a comment yesterday and I don't see it so I'll leave another. The Nativities came out beautiful, your design is adorable and you're very talented. I saw Brenda's pick for the giveaway, Johnny was my favorite pick, also.
Warm Holiday Wishes,

Congratulations to Brenda, what a well deserved win! Thanks so much for your giveaway Vicky, you are such a generous gal! Love your new nativity design and that Barb's and your creations turned out differently; that's the beauty of handmade isn't it? Everything is OOAK even if you make the same thing over and over, every piece is unique in some way. Thanks again for the giveaway and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours! Deb
