Envelope Please...And The Winner Is...

I couldn't wait to pick a winner this morning when I got up! I want to thank everyone for entering my giveaway! I am so happy for the response it got and every ones comments on what their favorite treat is for the holidays... some I never would have thought of... but now I might have to try!!! I am still responding back to comments on my Anniversary post... I really appreciated every one of them!
But now... we need to pick a winner...

and my lovely assistant, the hubs, is here to help...
( I tried to get my dog to do it but she didn't quite understand)


and the winner is...

Your comment and post about my giveaway was so kind!
Thanks so much for entering Ariane! Now all I need is your address and I will run the goodies over to the post office and send them off to you.
I was quick enough the other day while driving to get this picture.
At Thanksgiving, a tree is always brought in and put up at the main intersection of our town.
We have 2 signals on our main street... I know, whoohoo!... and the tree becomes the focal point for the holidays. This week there will be several smaller trees put around it and the little kids from the surrounding schools come and decorate each tree for their school.
Then this Saturday evening there will be a tree lighting ceremony along with singing... and hot chocolate! This last Saturday was the tree lighting ceremony at Bass Lake which we didn't attend but our boys were there.
Over the weekend we went to my sister's... they already put up their tree!
I did manage to work a little on my Red & White challenge quilt... which you can see is
vintage pink & white.


I was working on my Schnibbles for tomorrow also... but I can't show you until then!

I love small town traditions! I live in a larger city, and while we get a whole downtown park lit up it isn't the same as the whole town coming together.
I finished my Nov Schnibble!

Congrats to the fortunate winner. I am excited to see tomorrow's Picnic Parade of Schnibbles.

Life is good.

Whew! I just barely got my Picnic Schnibbles top done. I hope {fingers crossed} that December's isn't so complicated!

Wow! I can't believe I won. Thanks so much!!! I'm so excited. I sent you an email, using my sons iPod. My computer is not working at eh moment. So I'm using my sons iPod and the kids PS3 to get online and check all the wonderfull blog goodness that is out there. I also sent a message to Sherri about finishing my Picnic quilt top. I managed to get a photo on my flickr account, but I couldn't get it on my blog. It's more complicated when you don't actually use a compluter. I'm still trying to figure it out. Thanks again for the wonderful giveaway. I'll be patiently waiting for the wonderful gifts you are sending. Hugs Ariane
