Winner and a Bit of a Break

I want to thank everyone who entered the Shabby Apple Giveaway!
The winner of the Da Vinci dress is





I will email you today and let you know what you have to do!


Thank you again!!

And remember you can still use the code EMERALDCOVE10OFF at checkout and save 10% until Dec 14.


I am also going to be signing off for a while, not sure how long, for sure through Thanksgiving.
We have run into a small crisis this week, which we are hopefully almost over, and that has set me back a bit.
I have 17 people coming over for Thanksgiving so I will be getting ready for that and it is my birthday on Wednesday and I will be preparing for that!  hahah!!

I have also run out of steam on projects and such and right now my heart just isn't into it. 
I need to focus my attention, at least for a bit, on me and my family and getting to things that I haven't in a while that I need.  I know we all go through this and I will be back but just need to recharge and regroup for a bit.



I will always have my email open so if you need anything or just want to talk please email me. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you.  
Have a safe and wonderful holiday and thank you again for everything you do and are!!

Hugs!!!

I hope everything is ok! You are wise to take a break and focus on what you need to do. I haven't blogged much this month either. I am busy and don't have much to blog about. Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Michelle, just relax and dont work too hard at it, remember that what really matters is you're together with your loved ones... you've been really busy this last year, from the sound of it, and its time to kick back, read a good book, let others take care of you a bit! xxoo Anne

Happy Birthday Michelle. It sounds like you'll be cooking and prepping on you birthday. I hope you find time to enjoy your day :) Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

I've cut back on my blogging over the past few months, only posting a few times a month instead of a few times a week. It's worked out well for me and for my family too :) I hope your crisis is over too. They always seem to hit our lives when we're busiest, don't they?

Blessings,
Marcia

I know how you feel. I haven't had a chance to blog much do to all kinds of commitments and lack of clear creative focus.

I hope all gets resolved with the crisis. And I hope you had a joyous Thanksgiving.

Kristin said...

Hi Michelle! Don't know how I missed this post, but I was just thinking how I haven't heard from you in a while, and here's my answer...I hope that things have been resolved, or at least gotten better for you. Prayers and hugs your way my friend! Miss you!!

Oh Michelle...I hope everything is all right? Well, we do need to take sometime off at times...I can completely relate to it. Run a mile, chase a cat, do whatever...enjoy your days :)It's necessary.

I will keep you in my prayers and I'll wait for you to return with the same energy you always radiate.
