This Saturday morning I tore off my little Mary Engelbreit calendar and saw an illustration that I had not seen before.
I loved it so much and love the sentiment behind it. I do believe that this blogging outlet gives us the opportunity to do just that. We, as women, can share with each other our life experiences and help one another who might be going through similar situations. Even it’s just a crafting tip or helping someone cope with tragedy. What a huge light we can shine on someone else’s life.
I have found friends that I would have never known existed if it had not been for starting our blog. It overwhelms me that other people care about what we are doing and take time out of their busy (I know you are) lives to read what we have to say and to leave a comment. I consider you some of my dearest friends even though we are not near. Our connection is so real.
We received an award last week from Lindsay at The Cross Stitch House. It is for Blog Friends Forever. How could we possibly pick just five? We are very honored to be given this award, but it is too hard to choose amongst our friends.
One of those friends is Kathy of Kat Collects. She is doing a gorgeous give away this week. To look at that beautiful pile of pink makes me weak in the knees! Be sure to go take a look.
As I mentioned a few posts back, I have a huge collection of magazines. It is my belief that whoever dies with the most, wins. Heidi Ann from Gold Country Girls has convinced me that I don’t stand a chance. Anyway, I have a cupboard that was full of magazines.
I didn’t think I would ever show that picture, but this is a before and after. It gets better.
I was running out of room to display all my pretty planters and figurines so one day Lindsey said, ‘Why don’t you take all those magazines out and show off your planters there?’ Wow, I’m glad I have a creative thinker in the family. I have started clearing the shelves, but it is going slowly because I enjoy these magazines and can’t help scanning them as I pack them up (you didn’t think I was getting Rid of them, did you!).
Here are some pictures of a couple of shelves as they are now.
This week I met a wonderful new lady named Stacey. She has a blog called Poofing the Pillows. If you haven’t met Stacey yet, pop on over and introduce yourself. She’s very friendly and you’ll enjoy your visit.
