~Monday Dreary Monday...let's Make it a RAK MONDAY!~

I have a special RAK today!
It is direct form Bella BLVD!
Now for those of you who have not been able to get Bella or want some more, this is the RAK for you!
They have sent me a special set of papers...
PLUS The great Family Journaling and accent stickers on a 12X12 sheet!
What I need you to do is once again visit the Bella BLVD blog, we need to show them
that I am indeed getting the word out about their products! So I need as many comments as possible...and if you refer a friend to BELLA and they comment on Bela's Blog you will receive
Not one but TWO entries! And one lucky winner will take home this great Package!
Thanks YOU Bella BLVD!
http://www.bellablvd.typepad.com/
Since this is an extra special RAK it will be open until TUESDAY NIGHT at 8PM!

And in other news LOL
One of the girls on Treasured Scrapbooking is hosting a Perpetual Calendar Kit Class
so if you are interested here is a link.

It is 23.95


And I wanted to share a special ornament with my friends (you all) this morning.
When I was a child I never had any ornaments of my own, nor any traditions.
My husband knows this and he knows how important it is to me
to create those for my children now.
But he also knows how much it would mean to have something of my own.
So he went out the last couple years and bought me my own
special Hello Kitty (my favorite) ornaments.
He has always done so much for me especially to help me gain full control of my life
and bring back what he could for me.
This is one of my favorite ornaments.
No it is not expensive and it is not super fancy, but it holds the meaning of Christmas to me.
LOVE, Compassion, RESPECT and endearment.

So Merry Christmas to you and your family, wherever they may be and however you may celebrate!
~Pinky~

Cristal,

You have a keeper of a husband! I love to hear stories like this. It reminds me that there are great people out there that are kind hearted, loving and thoughtful!

I also went to Bella's blog and left some love.

Merry Christmas to you too!

OH, Pinky, I have been trying to find Bella Blvd in town and online. I found one internet site but the cost of shipping was ridiculous. I was hoping they would have some kind of sale over the holidays. Anyway, thanks for the chance to win some. You're blog is fun, thanks because I know it's a lot of work.

Carla said...

LOVE that little ornament! Left a couple of comment on the Bella blog :-)

Katie said...

What a sweetie your dh is! :) Love the Hello Kitty ornament! I went over to check out Bella and left some love on their blog - they have great products! Thanks for the RAK on a dreary Monday!

You have totally inspired me to buy ornaments for my children. I always think...na...they'll just want to use their own anyway. But you're right, it's so much more than that.

I absolutely love the Bella Blvd. papers and embellies. I left a comment and passed on the info.

Hugs!
Julie

Misvish / Karin D said...

So sweet ;0)

I've stopped by the Bella Blog and left some love. I would love to win some Bella stuff they haven't even heard of the line at my LSS.

Pepper Potts said...

What a sweet way for your husband to help you take back your life! My daughter has recently "met" Hello Kitty...and it is now her life!!! I'll have to see if I can find a HK ornament for her (her favorite t is a hello kitty light up guitar rock shirt! :) hehe) I get my kids an ornament each year, too! :)

Went to the Bella Site, left a comment and will be passing along the info!

Coco said...

I went over to Bella's blog and checked out their stuff, its great, they have some beautiful LO's too.
I love your ornament, its important to have traditions, you have a very toughtful husband.

Maxine Hodges said...

Pinky, you have a keeper for a husband!!! I bought my kids an ornament each year. Brian took his when he married and Robin took hers this year (she bought a house, she hasn't found Mr. right) I look at my tree and wish I had bought them one and me one just like it. I remember all the ornaments that aren't there now. You try to raise independent, nice adults, and what do they do? They are independent. In case you can't tell I'm going through a little empty nest thing. I am hopping over to Bella. Have to check them out.
Merry Christmas to your whole family. Hope you find Santa before then.
