My First Give-A-Way

I have enjoyed blogging so much since I started in March.  I have met some beautiful people inside and out through this experience.  I feel like you are all a part of my extended family.  We share our homes, lives, comments.  We don't do this for personal gain but for the love of others.  I get excited every time I see there is a new follower.  I feel that I have a new friend.  I know that I spend way too much time doing this but I gain so much.  I actually think blogging makes me feel better about myself.  I care about all of you, say prayers for you and wish nothing but the best.  Okay,  I need to stop this as I have no idea where I am headed.  I have decided it is time for me to give back to all of you.  So, I am going to give-a-way one of my altered boxes.  Nothing spectacular but something from my heart.  There a little something special inside.  So here is how you can win this.  If you are a follower you are automatically entered.  If you leave a comment and are a follower, I will enter you twice.  If you leave a comment but don't choose to follow (sob) you will also have one chance.    Make sure I have some way of getting in touch with you.  GOOD LUCK and thanks for all the fun I am having.

That box is beautiful Debby! You're really creative and talented like my sister. She makes really beautiful quilts and ornaments. I missed out on that gene darn it! :)

And I may have already said this in another comment but I really like following your blog. I hope you know that you give back too just by being how you are. I completely understand what you meant in your post here. I just hope you realize that you do the same for all of us. You've made so many of my days better by the comments you leave. You make a difference in this broken hearted girl's life. Your kind words, thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated.

Happy Wednesday night.....I came over from Vicki’s Cherry Chick blog...that is the way we all get to meet each other and make such special friends...blog hopping is such fun! Love yours, and am a follower. Your box is lovely, and I will keep my fingers and toes crossed...and my tongue curled...in hopes that I turn out to be the lucky winner. The idea of a give away is such a great way to say thank you back to the girls who have been following us and sharing their comments with us so I am trying to put one together as we speak. Hugs from Virginia....Genie
