First and foremost I must say thank you to April at for all her hard work at making my blog BEAUTIFUL!!!

I was having so many problems with my other blog layout. It was just one of those fill in the blank blogs with nothing thrilling about it. But, I am one of those women who really doesn't have a clue when it comes to most things on the computer. So I was at a loss at how to fix my problems and I was never going to be able to design my own dream blog.

But, then a little gift from Heaven came to me. April was having a giveaway for a free blog design. I got my name in just under the wire and guess what! Oh, I guess you guessed it because you can see my lovely new blog design. I WON!

April emailed me with news and I was thrilled. I actually danced around with joy!

Let me tell you ladies, if you ever want or need a new blog layout you must go see April! She can do magic on the computer and design anything your heart desires.

She is so friendly and helpful, I can't even tell you how many times I asked her to change a color or font or design and she did it without blinking an eye.

I have never met anyone who has such talent on a computer as she does. Plus she NEVER sleeps. I have been chatting with her until well after midnight my time, which is even later her time. Oh and she works a full time job and has to get up early. I'm telling you she is amazing! I don't know how she does it but she does!

I can honestly say I now LOVE the look of my blog! I can hold my head up high and be proud of how lovely it is. All thanks to April!

April not only did my super design but she did several other blogs too. She also ran a contest for a free blog banner. All you had to do was click on to follow her blog and she would make you a banner.

I know she is going to post the list of the blogs she worked on so you must run over to her blog and check them out.

Besides all the wonderful designs she does she is funny, witty and downright fun. Her blog is full of her personality and a joy to read daily. So I hope you all make her a favorite too.

Thank you again April! I love the blog and I love you! You are one special lady!

Love your new blog design, it's perfect! What a wonderful thing to win.

And thanks for the heads up on your last post about Big Lots. I always check there for Halloween, but not Christmas. I'm mad for bottle brush wreaths and trees so I'll be checking it out later today.

If you like sparkly, glittered Christmas, have a look at Target. I found some great stuff there yesterday (my theme this year is glitz and glam) at very good prices (wonderful glittered deer @ less than $5 each as well as some terrific mercury glass pieces that are very reasonably priced).

Have a great weekend!
