Drum roll please....

Congratulations to our final four Mina, Mindy, Kathrin and Tracy. All of you did an amazing job with your cards and a further look around your blogs told me that each of you are first class crafters.

I know some of you had a problems voting, others didn't and as I only loaded the gadget
from Blogger I can not understand why. It's not within my power to fix or work out why some
could not use the voting gadget.

But as the Christmas post is nearing cut off point we would like the courier to collect this prize
asap and hopefully, if the snow is better, it may arrive in time.


and congratulations to Mina, Mindy and Kathrin, all four finalists win their choice of 12 Sugar Nellie stamps.
Email your choice and address to Mark and your sweet stamps will be sent out. info@funkykits.co.uk

We are wrapping up more than prizes here at the HOS as our year ends, thank you to all who sent in cards and gifts, it's nice to be appreciated and make me all warm and fuzzy even if its -5 out there :)
DH arrived home safe but late last night so only one Daughter to get back to home for the holidays, I hope if you are traveling anywhere that you take care and be safe.
If you still have shopping to do, good luck!

But this is our final Christmas post, I will be back with other news but not seasonal. Having been in Christmas mode from the summer I really am ready to be refreshed by something without X (mas) appeal.

We hope to get a last minuet delivery from the rubber factory so that our DT can get the new releases for the new year. Finger crossed as transport is not good within the UK due to the weather.

stay warm, take care

Congratulations to Tracy. Thank you Karen too for organizing such a different competition. Glad DH got home safely. I think you have it worse where you are but we've had no mail since the middle of last week.
Take care

Congrats to Tracy and the other 3 ladies too. I really wish postie would have some of Santa's magic an get my sassy girls set 3 to me for christmas, I get disapointed each day as they don't arrive, and have just checked the HOS policy and I have to wait for 15 working days which takes me into new year! Oh well at least I know when they do arrive they will have been worth the wait.

Have a fab christmas Karen and all at the HOS and fab new year celebrations too and look forward to all 2011 brings.
