Fun Friday Linky Party

A lot has been going on in my world since the beginning of December 
some good some bad but this post focusing on one of the "Good"
with the holidays over I am hoping to get into my craftroom 
because there is a new addition in there
I won a silhouette cameo from svgcuts day one 
on the 12 days of Christmas Giveaway
the funny thing was I saw the post Monday morning about 5 am 
and thought oh that would be so awesome to win and I hesitated 
oh  I probably would forget about going back to check to see if I won 
and thought what the heck just leave a comment so I did 
Tuesday night dishwasher had died stopped by Lowe's to look 
for a new one  grabbed and pizza 
came home hubby and I were just watching some tv 
and the phone ran and on the screen I see the 
name Leo Kowal and I was totally confused
 Leo from SVGcuts????
what had I done why would he be calling ME.......
 to tell me I had won the cameo
Honestly called me! Not an email not a post on facebook 
an old fashion phone call said he had check saw I
 was a long time customer  had my number 
so he want to personally tell me the good news
we talked for 30 minutes  
omg was so thrilling made winning even sweeter
Did make some last minute Christmas projects 
of course no time to photo them 
next good thing Christmas present book of photos of Miss Emma 
the smile of joy oh her face 
just how I felt getting the cameo in the mail 
Thank's Mary and Leo 
I love svgcuts

  6. Congrats on Cameo win. I also got a personal phone call from Ribbon Carousel after ordering one of their ribbon carousels to let me know that they were waiting on the top piece before mailing out. They could have emailed but phoned and yes it is nicer to get a personal phone call nowadays. Also, have hjad my share of disasters for 2013. A/C leak that brought the ceiling crashing down in my daughter's bathroom. Luckily daughter was at college. Then right after Christmas we had toilet & tub clog up. Plumber unclogged. Then it clogged 2nd time few days later after 1st time. Plumber came back out & unclogged. I'm so wanting no plumbing problems anymore!!!
    Happy New Year!

  17. Congratulations my sweet friend!!! Nothing better to make you forget about the dishwasher right? I am so happy for you!!! And what a gentleman he is, I have admired their designs for so long, but I can't use them with my E2 :? We also ended 2013 with our fair share of appliance disasters we had a major dishwasher mess that damage not only the kitchen wood floor but the bsmnt ceiling and plenty more mishaps :?.. I am so happy 2014 is here I got the feeling it will be a fabulous year!!. Thank you for sharing the joy of this beautiful baby girl!!! She sure is precious!!!
    Have a happy and prosperous 2014!
