I am so sorry!

Hello sweet ladies,
Okay.........did any one notice that I had the drawing on the wrong day? Well I did........I didn't know that I did.........but I had it on the 8th of January instead of the 11th of January like I said we would! I have to tell you that I made a HUGE mistake. I realized on Sunday (a precious friend let me know......she is a sweetie!!!!) that I had had the date of 11th for the party and I did the party this last Saturday thinking it was the right day and it was the 8th. UGHHHHH!!!!!!! When I was working on the post for the party I brought up my calendar on my computer. I was looking at December instead of January. Dec. 11th is on a Saturday. I knew that I could not do the drawing of the party on a week day........ because of work (going outside my HOME is not my thing) I had it planned all along for this Saturday " in my mind"!!!!! I am horrible at knowing what the date of the day is. Ask my family. When my friend emailed me.......... I was just sick about what I had done! I knew I needed to do something so I prayed........and prayed and prayed and boohooed! The right thing I needed do was to continue the party and then when the day came I would let you all know what was going on. So here is the day.......I will be adding all the new entries from Sat. afternoon........ minus the lady that won and add the new ladies to my red rubbermade box with all the entries up to Sat. noon. Hope that makes sense. I will let you know on January the 12 on WEDNESDAY who won. I am so so so sorry! But I think this will work and everyone will get a try again and hopefully you will enjoy the party. That can't be bad right? Oh if it is don't tell me!!! Smile! I just honestly had nooooooo idea I would have so many ladies to the party........that was wonderful......but it was a little scary!

So here goes. I will draw from my red box today for another "Gift set" (101 Cupcake, Cookie & Brownie Recipe Cookbook!, Winter Thyme Notebook Keeper and recipe cards) I will draw after I get home from work and let you know who the other winner is on Wednesday or late tonight. So now you know the real Linda........haha! Please tell me that you will trust me with another party!!!!!!! I am always want to be so careful on my blog to be honest and do right. It is a big deal to me! So thank you for being GRACE giver's! I love you all bunches!

I loved having this of my favorites.........hope you did also!

So glad so many of you told Gooseberry Patch how much you love you loved them!

Hugs from my to the kitchen to do some more cooking from the 101 Cupcake, Cookie & Brownie Recipe Cookbook!

Love you all and may the Lord Bless Your Day! Linda

    We are expecting snow here in Maryland, but only a couple of inches.

  13. Hi, Linda! If you think you don't know what day it is now, wait until you retire. My daughter thinks I have lost my mind. When Christms came on the weekend this year, I was so mixed up....anyway, it keeps everyone else on their toes. I hope I win this time! Love your blog! Love, Mary S.

  18. Tressa did a great job on the pics!!! I love the snow except I didn't get to enjoy it. There is something about colleges never closing so I had to drive the 30 miles to class. they did close early yesterday and got a late start today but I still had all my classes.
    Don't worry about the party thing! Just gives you a change for another party!!

  19. Every one of you ladies are adorable~~~~~~~~~ Thank you for blessing me so! It really was hard........but now I feel better because we have a winner.........YES! Behind me!

    Thank you for being such a precious part of my life.
    Hugs, me
