MIA for a while... plus WIN MY STORE and new wordart freebies!

Well... It's been a while! So much has happened the past few weeks... where to start. First, we were all sick in the Sweeney household for about 3 weeks. Just when it seemed that we were getting better, we would get hit with the flu again!

Then 2 weeks ago, my Hubby got laid off from his job that he's had for the last 5 years! THAT SUCKS!!! He's been looking for a new job but hasn't been able to find anything here. We've weighed all of our options and have come to the conclusion that we would pack everything up and head back home to Newfoundland. For those of you who arent familliar with Canadian geographical locations, Newfoundland is an Island on the East Coast of Canada. The population is about 508,000 people and it's one of the most beautiful places in the whole world. Newfoundland has the oldest city in North America, St. John's at over 500 years old. We were both born there and grew up there until we were in our early 20's when we both travelled the country. After being here in Calgary for 5 years, it's time to take the kids and bring them home to their families! I am so excited but nervous at the same time. It's gonna be great being home for Christmas!

We are scheduled to fly out of Calgary on Tuesday, December 8th. So, the past few days we've been trying to pack everything up and get things organized to put in storage. It's been so busy and so hard trying to pack 5 years of your life in a few suitcases to take home. Slowly but surely, i'll get it all done on time. LOL. I decided to have a last minute moving sale and was contacted by a single mom who is very low income. She wanted to take the things I had for free and wanted to buy somethings too. I was so moved by her story that I decided that I would give her everything! Sometimes it's better to give than to receive. At least now she'll have some things to help furnish her apartment and to give her kids a great Christmas.

So... due to the move, my internet access is going to be limited for the next few weeks at least. As soon as we get things straightened away and get moved into our own place I should be back up and running! In the meanwhile, here is a whole bunch of wordart freebies for you. This should help tie you over until my return. Enjoy!

Dream a little dream of me:
Dream until all your dreams come true:
The Earth laughs in flowers:
To sleep perchance to dream:

And... if you want to win a chance to WIN MY STORE, create a layout using any of todays freebie wordarts, post them in my gallery at Pretty Scrappy, and post the link to the layout in this post. When I get back on here in a few weeks, i'll choose one layout and the lucky scrapper will WIN MY STORE!!! I hope to see lots of entries when I come back.

I would also like to take this chance to thank you all for following Inspired Mommie Designs and for buying my products this past year. Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!
