Giveaway Updates

As much as I love giveaways, I'm the slowest and most distracted person when it comes to actually mailing the prizes out.  

I actually have 3 prizes in mailing envelopes, with the winners' addresses printed on them and everything...just riding around in my car. 
Oy.

Then, I have 3 others on my desk that need to be packaged.



I had 10 responses to the Historical Holiday Blog Hop



And, I offered 10 books as choices for the Gratitude Giveaway in November.

As I typed this post, I realized that the total number of books in this post is 26.
26.

If that's not a sign, I don't know what is.

The 6 people who've already won will, of course, receive their books shortly...I will take them to the post office on Dec. 26 to keep them from getting mixed up in holiday mail.

But, each of the 10 people who entered the Historical Holiday Blog Hop will also win the books they chose instead of the two chances I originally offered in this giveaway.

And, I will choose a winner for each of the 10 books offered as choices in the Gratitude Giveaway instead of the 1 chance offered originally.

26 books...26 book lovers...1 book blogger who is thankful and grateful and wishing to spread as much joy and peace as possible this Christmas season and on throughout the year.

Joy.
Peace.
Love.

I think we could all use some.

I'll be emailing winners tonight!!

Quiet Time - I still believe.

I've been quiet for the last few days...on purpose. 
I'm still not sure I'm ready to talk about it. 
 
My heart is in Newtown, CT...and the only thing...the only thing that makes sense to me right now is my faith.
 
The. Only. Thing.
 
A friend of mine shared a post from another blogger (new to me) that helps me with my words.
 
I still believe.
