Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

Hello, everyone!!!

Thank you all for visiting with me for the "It's A Basket Case" blog hop -- it was a blast!!!  I enjoyed all the comments, meeting/making new friends and the opportunity to play along with all the other wonderful and talented participants!!!

I do also want to extend a big WELCOME to my new followers!!!  I'm so glad you found your way to joining the wonderful family of friends you'll find here!  Come often and always make yourselves at home.  I'm so very happy to have you!!!

At this time, I'd like to announce the winner selected by Random.org  for the blog hop candy package:

THE WINNER IS:  Minta's Creations Blogspot!!!  Congratulations!!!

You have until Friday, April 22, to claim your package.  If the package is not claimed by then, Random.org will select another winner.  To receive your package, please email your address to me at:  audreyfrel@sbcglobal.net

As a note, on my sidebar you will notice I am participating in another blog hop on this Friday, April 22, hosted by Gaby of Gaby Creates.  I will provide more information as it is provided to me but I wanted to forewarn you and let you know I'll be looking forward to you again joining me for more fun and excitement.

As I've mentioned to you, I have been involved in a circumstance which has not allowed me to craft or visit as much as I'd like right now.  I'm hoping things will calm down very soon now.  Part of the reason I can't communicate with you as often is because I'm spending a considerable amount of time with a family member and they do not have internet service; therefore, I'm trying to keep in touch as much as possible on my "between" visits home.  Please bear with me, I haven't forgotten you and you're always in my thoughts and prayers!

Love you all!  Miss you all!  And, as always...

I'll be seeing you!

Congratulations, Minta!
Audrey - it sounds as though your family needs you more than we do. (That's not to say we don't miss you though!) Please do what you need to do without feeling guilty. Meanwhile, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Audrey, thanks for taking the time to visit my blog today. I was at a Silhouette class this evening...my husband signed me up (haha). I haven't made anything in a while. We had out of town company on Friday and Saturday we went to Nashville for a concert. I am working on a project now though. It is for our office administrator. It may take me a few days to get this completed though.

I hope everything calms down soon for you. I will be praying for you and your family.


Sandy from Ukiah said...
