Hoot yourself a Merry little Chrismas.

Can you believe only 20 more day until Christmas! I have done NO shopping and have no idea when I am going or what I am getting. I starting to panic a little. I do not want to be at the mall the days before Christmas. My tree is up and lights on it(1200 lights) and on Tuesday one strand of lights went out and the whole tree went dark.....GRRRRR! Some time this week I also want to finish decorating the house.  SO much to do and so little time.

Happy Wednesday to you all. This week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we have a great sponsor for you, Meljen. Here is a little something about Melissa the owner of Meljen's.

At a Snails pace..,.

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you.  I am a happy mommy...Marching Band season is OVER! Hoot- Hoot! ((((Jumping Up and down))). Our last performance was on Saturday downtown at Ford Field (where the Detroit Lions play football). Our school placed 9th. The kids did the best performance they have ever done and we are super proud of them. I am exhausted and took a long nap on Monday after work.  Now we start to get to get ready for winter drum line. It is never ending!  I know some day I am going to miss all this  craziness. 
On to my post....This is the sketch for Sweet Sketch Wednesdays. Our Fabulous sponsor is Stamp Fairy.  Gerda the wonderful owner and artist for Stamp Fairy is giving the winner of this weeks challenge a $10 gift certificate.

Peace and Love.

 Happy Halloween to all my American friends and Happy Wednesday to all my friends from across the pond. I hope you all are well. We are doing good, even if we are not on the front line of this big massive storm we have had so very windy days and lots of rain. Knock on wood we still have power. 

Today for Sweet sketch Wednesday we have a great new sponsor for you The Doodle Garden. Jenn is the owner and artist. Here is a little something about her.
HI all!
Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little bit about the gal behind The Doodle Garden digis!

I'm Jennifer L Nilsson (but please, call me Jenn or Jenna!). And I am blessed to be able to work full-time from home as a licensed artist.

I enjoy creating bright whimsical pieces for manufacturers, but also wanted to be able to offer something to those who like to craft. So I have begun my journey with digistamp designs with my Etsy shop: The Doodle Garden.

It's fairly new, but is growing pretty fast and I am SOOO enjoying creating these little whimsies for YOU!

You are able to find more of Jenn's sweet and  whimsical images at her shop or on her blog.

This weeks winner will receive 5 free images of their choice.

Below is this weeks sketch, it is a fun one.
