List of Fours and another giveaway

Good morning and happy Monday. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I had a great weekend. It was quiet and relaxing but I am happy for it to be over. I was so not prepared for it.

Anywho, I don't have a project to share since I was spending time with my family but I did notice when I was blog hopping over the weekend that my bloggy buddy Karen over at The Bald Dragonfly tagged me for the List of Fours so here it goes:

1. Four shows that you watch?
-The Closer
(We don't have cable so we watch all our shows on Netflix)

2. Four things you are passionate about?
-my children
-finishing college
-getting good grades in college

3. Four words/phrases you say a lot?
-get off the cat
-get your finger out of your nose
-I said no
-leave your sister alone

4. Four things you have learned in the past?
-things happen for a reason
-treat others as you want to be treated
-Communication is key to a relationship (Karen had this one too. I have learned that from some bad past relationships)
-Save your pennies (my dad chanted that since I was old enough to work and save money, I wish I would have listened, lol)

5. Four places you would like to go?
-back to Vegas

6. Four things you did yesterday?
-played Mario Bros on the Wii for 2 hours with Tony after the kids went to bed
-watched hours of Backyardigans
-changed several poopie diapers
-laundry and dishes

7. Four things you are looking forward to?
-Fall of 2012 when I get my certificate in Accounting
-my children to get just old enough to go to school and start playing sports (so ages 5,6 and 7)
-my oldest daughter to have children (I can't wait to spoil my grandbabies)
-moving out of the house I currently live in and buying a place of our own

8. Four things you love about winter?
-the smell of a burning fireplace
-the view of falling snow
-all the hot chocolate and mocha lattes I can drink
-seeing my kids play in the snow

Tag four people to play along:

April: Scrapper Forever

Courtney: Courts Crafts

Debbie: Love Lifes Little Pleasures

Catherine: Scraps of Grace

Ok, now on to the giveaway! WAHOOOO!!! First I would like to say that I have only heard back from 4 of the 6 winners from the last giveaway. If I don't hear from Darlene S and Karen aka soccerboyzmom by midnight tonight, then I will pick 2 new winners. I will also be using to chose the winner of December's sketch challenge that ends tonight at midnight EST. I have not mailed any prizes yet because I have a lot to get out and want to do it all at once.

Today's giveaway is an American Crafts Zap! Heat Gun.

That's right I will be giving at least one of these away(maybe 2). All you have to do is make sure you are a follower and make a quick blog post about it so we can spread the word. Please leave me a comment with the link to your post and/or letting me know you are or became a follower. This giveaway will end Jan 6 at midnight EST.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow for an awesome project from DT member April. Oh and the January kit reveal will hopfully be on Wednesday.

Happy Crafting!!
