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, all my wonderful friends!!!  As always, I hope all's well and that you're all having a crafting good time!

Thank you all for the wonderful comments on my DT project earlier!  It was more than a notion to do and I was up til 4 a.m. trying to complete it and get it posted!  As easy as it turned out and is, it took me forever to figure it out  - I even made a mistake on the tutorial.. lol!!!  Unfortunately, I thought I'd have the matching cards to go inside the box but that'll have to come later now, time just wasn't on my side.

Right now, I want to share this wonderful idea I ran across on several blogs and I just loved the sentiment behind doing this.  It's called "Pay It Forward" and how it works is that you bless someone with a random act of kindness (RAK) without expecting anything in return; but, with a hope that someone else will follow the example to do the same.  As I understand it, you also hope to establish a never-ending chain of goodwill and connecting/sharing relationships -- doesn't that sound awesome!!!  I love reaching out in any way possible and what a wonderful way of doing it than this way!!!

Now part of what I have to do is promise to send one of my handmade original creations to the first five (5) of you who leave me a comment on this post.  In return, you must post th picture and this same information on your blog, and also promise to send an original creation to the first five people commenting to you... and so on to your 5 commenters.

Got it?!!!  Okay, let's detail it all to make certain you understand:

1. Leave a comment on this post and I will send a handmade project to the first 5 commenters.

2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.

3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.

4. It must be sent to your 5 people by the end of the year.

5. Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

AND, you do have until before the end of the year to have your gifts to your commenters - we can all do that, right?!  I'd say networking this way to reach out and show love is not only kind, but a way of giving in return for the kindness received.

So..., what are you waiting for?!!!  All I'm looking for is the first five (5) commenters who are interested!  Now, post those comments right here!

While I'm waiting I'll be showing my love by dropping in on you and just saying hello while admiring your wonderful craft creations; letting you know you're always with me in my thoughts and prayers (even if I don't say THAT...lol!).  Now it's going to take me some time but I'm working at getting to you!

Love ya, and see ya!!!

Well, isn't this grand? I did something like this on fb and it was so much fun. I am probably not even close to the first 5, but if I am I would so LOVE to get something from you. I will, however, start my own chain next week.
