Beaten to the punch

sarah Mazzone

I swear to you, I have been working diligently on my All American holiday gift giving guide that will feature wonderful gifts made by members of our extended American family.  I was planning on posting it before the end of the weekend.  And then what does the lady pictured above, Sarah Mazzone, go and do?  She posts her own American Made Holiday Gift Guide and Holiday Challenge 2013 and edges me out.  Oh wait, Sarah published hers on November 5th.  So actually I had no hope of besting Sarah, even if I had not procrastinated.  And while my gift giving guide will have around ten products on it, Sarah’s has quite a few products more than ten.  So again, I guess hers is better than mine.  Still, I am going to publish my All American holiday gift giving guide.  It will just be smaller than Sarah’s guide and published about six weeks after Sarah published her list.  Please look at my gift giving guide when it comes out!  Please!
