Thank You

I did have a new project to post today, however, Blogger keeps giving me a "server rejected" message when I try to upload my new photos.  I've tried on different browsers and different computers with no luck.  So - since most of you (at least the US readers) will be getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday - here is a picture from last year of the mini turkey dinner pop up punch from Martha Stewart.  I know it's silly but I don't like to make a post without at least one photo - I don't think I ever have...

Voting on the Creative Memories Cruisin' with Cricut contest was to end Tuesday night.  I am up past midnight because of the photo uploading problem and the site still is in the voting phase so I don't know which time zone was used - I am guessing Central since Creative Memories is located in Minnesota.  I also am not sure whether the results will be available tomorrow - the original information given to the finalists was that the winner would be notified on the 29th but the contest site says winners announced on the 24th.  So I will have to look in the morning (or maybe wait until next week).

I do want to say thanks again to everyone who voted and sent me encouraging messages.  It was an interesting and somewhat stressful experience to be in a contest like this.  I don't think I will enter another contest that is judged by a vote instead of by judges anytime soon.  I didn't like to have to keep asking for votes and reminding everyone to vote.  I tried to make a good page and I was very happy with my entry and I plan to continue with this album about the women in my family so that is one very good result of the contest!

I want to let you know that the Creative Charms sale has actually started already and will continue until Sunday night - so have fun shopping!  Since I can grab photos by their URLs, here is the revised "poster" with all of the details.

Many of you know that I have been having pretty severe leg and back pain for quite a few months.  Tomorrow (Wednesday) I will be having a procedure done to try to help relieve the pain.  It is a quick outpatient process and I should be fine - maybe it will even help.  I just wanted you to know that if the contest results do go up in the morning I won't be here to see them - I'll be at the hospital.  If Blogger and my back cooperate I'll have a couple of things to post later on Wednesday.  Good luck with all your holiday preparations!
