Project Inspire{d} Week #43 ~ Christmas is a Comin’

Hello friends and welcome to this week’s Project Inspire{d} ~ can you believe we only have a little over 3 weeks until Christmas? I am shakin’ in my boots thinking about all I have to get done yet.  

I sort of fell off the blogger wagon this week and I only did two posts ~ a Repurposed Sweater Wreath adorned with some vintage ice skates……

Make It- Fun® Foam Sweater Wreath

and I have a BIG Giveaway going on right now that I would love for you to enter!

Now, I have a silly question.  Do any of you ‘mind answer’?  I am hoping I’m not the only one.  I was looking over last week’s party post and realized that I didn’t actually respond to any of you wonderful gals who commented on the post….I did in my mind but not for reals.  Yep….I am officially a lousy hostess…unless of course you can read minds then you’ll know I did respond and I do appreciate you.  This week I promise to be better about answering you all because I truly appreciate the time you take to let me know you’re here!
