The Paper Nest Dolls: Baby Owen and Blog Candy Winner

Hello everyone!  Hope everyone is having a great start of the week!

These days I find it so hard to keep up with this blog!  I have been crafting but I just find it so hard to really sit down and write up a post!  Time has a lot to do with it of course.  Each night by the time I get the kids off to bed and gotten everything ready for the next day, it's usually almost 10:00pm.  I know a lot of you guys have even crazier schedules.  How do you do it?  How do you manage it all and still are able to keep your blog so up to date?  Please do share!

Here is a card I made using Baby Owen from The Paper Nest Dolls.  I think he is super adorable and he can be used for different occasions, not just Christmas.  Speaking of Christmas, have you started working on your Holiday cards?  Before we know it, it will be just around the corner!  


Oh yes, the blog candy winner.  :)  I didn't forget.  I had a busy day.  I was at the dentist most of my morning and part of my afternoon.  I then went to lunch with my mom and twin.  It's our lunar calendar birthday.  My mom celebrates lunar calendar birthdays, not the usual one.  

My mom is doing good.  She has a good appetite.  She is current undergoing chemotherapy.  We are not sure if the therapy is helping.  The last I heard from my sister is that the doctors are getting together to evaluate her situation.  Hopefully the therapy is helping.

The winner of the candy is.................Larre-Susanne.  Please send me your contact info at kimlayu@gmail.com so I can send you your prize!

Thank you everyone for entering!  I will have more candies soon!
