I have the Christmas spirit today! No sales this year, Mister is still officially laid off (it's been a little over a year!) I spent another day cooking another Thanksgiving meal. We spend Thanksgiving with my family at my aunt's house so, of course, we don't come home with any leftovers. So then a day or two after, I cook a turkey breast, potato, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, and a pie for the two of us. My Aspy kids won't touch any of it. So Mister invited his brother over to eat with us (he lives down the street), and tomorrow one of my brothers will get a plate full!

Now for the giveaway! When I saw this holiday survival kit I knew I had to save it for a giveaway, so for the past two or three weeks when I was at thrift and dollar stores, I kept my eyes open for items to add. So here we have it:

1.) The Holiday Survival Kit - includes a funny little book, ear plugs, a flask, and ten cards printed with great excuses to leave the party early!

2.) Mini File Folders - if you don't like red, I also have blue and black dotty - winner will be asked. (I bought a pack of red for myself to use for crafts!) They hold 4" x 6"/10 x 15cm recipe cards.

3.) Two pretty porcelain "plate" ornaments with angelic cherubs! These are 3"/7.5cm round.

4. A pretty shopping pad with roses and glitter!

I will draw the winner next Friday, Dec. 4th. So, the deadline to enter is midnight, Thursday, Eastern Standard Time. All you have to do is leave a comment, but only one per post between now and then! Good luck!
