Spend the first 14 days of December with me right here!

I have so so so much to share with all of you!! 
I have some very exciting news...
I'll be blogging everyday right here with a contest or giveaway everyday! AND... on December 14th I'll pick one winner to win an $100.00 "Santa Bag" of Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker products! To win the "Santa Bag" of goodies all you need to do is sign up for my FREE newsletter! The sign up for the newsletter is on the left side column right here on my blog!  I'll pick one of the email address to win the Santa Bag of products! (Please only one entry per person.) 
Everyday there will be a giveaway or contest of some sort, also I'm going to share other companies products along with my products and a few of my "favorite things"! You'll get to see how my friends, design team girls and I spend the holidays along with some of our Christmas traditions!  This is going to be so fun!! 

Within the next 14 days I'll be showing my first CHA Sneak Peek and you might be one of the lucky ladies that will win a new Spring 2011 paper line before it even hits the stores or is shown at CHA!! How fun will that be!! 

Don't forget to also check my company Facebook page for more chances to win some Christmas presents from me!  If you see this logo on Facebook then you are in the right place! 
                                            

So I'm sure most of you saw my Dear Hubby's blog post about me being sick and sending me to bed... okay so wow... I was really sick! More than I even knew... but thankfully I'm feeling so much better! I have asthma so I always end up with a bad cough that lingers for weeks after my cold or flu, and it always sounds so much worse than I feel. When I start coughing I can clear a room pretty quickly and yet feel fine! Thanks for all your "get well soon" wishes to me and I guess I should thank my hubby too (even though I fought him every single step of the way to our bedroom)! 

I just have to share with you these sweet pictures of Bella-Blue at her pet therapy visit at our local cancer center, she was an Indian for her Thanksgiving visit! My sister Emily made this adorable Indian outfit for her...

 Bella and I together getting ready to start our visit!

 Bella-Blue was a bit upset with the beads and straps that hung off her outfit as you can see below...


 I can't leave here without sharing a few of my favorite Christmas 2 page layouts using my Happy Holly-Day's paper line! I've never been a 2 page layout scrapbooker but since I started using Allison Davis's Sketch Books I can knock out a 2 pager like no ones business! 
Here are a few that my Design Team girls created using Allison's Sketches:
                                          DT Diva:  Katrina Hunt

DT Diva: Ria Mojica
                                           DT Diva: Christine Ousley
DT Diva: Jennifer Yates
 I just had to share a couple of these close ups of Jennifer's layout, love how she popped up the Nutcracker in my Happy Holly-Day's paper line!

One last thing, today is my dad's birthday! We've had a strained relationship in the past (just the stuff that goes along with having divorced parents) but we've totally reconnected and have a beautiful relationship now! So I want to say a big Happy Birthday Day to my daddy, Ron!
This is my dad with his grandson, Max...  (love Max in this picture)

Tomorrow's December 1st so don't forget to stop by to enter the "Santa Bag" of Nikki Sivils products and maybe another little something special too!  Have a great Tuesday! -Nikki

I am so sorry to hear that you were sick but very happy that you're feelin' much better now! My son, Daniel struggles with his Asthma during the Winter because so many times, the least little cold has ended up with him in the ER needing a breathing treatment. Very excited about the fun things to come on your blog and that you'll be revealing your newest collection... You always know how to make the holidays brighter with your generous giveaways and I know that I'll be following daily!

Signed up for your newsletter! Love Miss Bella's costume, wish the therapy dogs around here were half as cute as her! Happy Birthday to your Dad. Love the layouts, thanks for the links to the sketch books, I so want them. Love that she tells what size to cut the paper, would be great for my 16 yo, lol. Can't want to see the spring stuff!
