Contest is over now...

(A picture of myself and my best buddy Brittney this year at Thanksgiving. She's one of the most emotionally intelligent people I've ever met. She also happens to be my daughter.)

Hi there blogworld friends!
Just want to thank all of you who entered my little giveaway! It is always so nice to hear from you, see your blogs, read your comments!

I know, I know...you want to know who won.
Well...I can't tell you yet. I will,but not yet.
Did I tell you that I have been on a little break? It's not a real break, only a break from my usual routine. I have been working the whole time. But let me just say that I have truly found the method that works for me, if I want to really accomplish something.

Here it is:(the method) Check myself into a (cheap) hotel right here in my own town, and stay for at least 3 days and 3 nights, ALL BY MYSELF.
It's weird, I know. What's weirder is what I bring with me: My sewing machine and serger, all my sewing supplies, a boatload of fabric, my computer, printer, scanner, design tools, and some comfortable clothes. (Imagine what the hotel management thinks when they see me traipsing in with all that strange gear (hehe).
The other thing is...
NO husband, no kids, no laundry, no cooking, no cleaning, no homework, no dropping people off, picking people up, no distractions at all. I even put my phone on silent.
I have found that it's the most therapeutic thing for me, and I can whip out all kinds of stuff in record time. I only do this twice a year, about 3 or 4 months before each quilt market, cause that's when I start to panic:)
So when people ask how I do it with 7 kids, that's how.

BUT... tomorrow morning it all comes to an end:(
It's OK. I'm ready now. It's time to enter back into the real world, and be the real Mom again.
(I did cheat and let my kids come swimming in the pool a couple of times...that way they don't complain so much about me doing this.)

When I get home, the first thing on my agenda is to go to church with my family (and thank the Lord for giving me a husband who allows me to do everything that I do without complaining), and then come home and use the "online contest randomizer" to pick the PRIZE WINNERS!

Check back tomorrow...thanks for playing!
Love you all,
Lila
