Blessed By Blogging


Wow! To say blogging has been a blessing would be an understatement. I want to start off the week sharing some very thoughtful gifts and goodies I've received from blog friends in the past few weeks.

This adorable bag was delivered to me from Angie at Workin' That Preppy. She also made the Jill's Book Bag Leah won this summer. I've already carried this many times (yes, I do change my purse to match my outfit) and have literally been stopped on the street. Thanks, Angie!

Many of you know, I collect pumpkins, and went ga-ga over this sign hand-painted by Sandy. And just like that, out of the goodness of her pumpkin' lovin' heart, she sent it to me. I got it in the mail the day I got locked in the bathroom at the fall fest and had a back problem that took nearly two weeks to fix. I opened her package as I was reclining on an ice pack. A unique pick-me-up, indeed. This will hang in a very special place in our keeping room. Thank you so very much, Sandy!

And yesterday, the book I won over at Melissa's arrived in the mail...

...along with these beautiful biblical passage cards, AND personalized notecards, all hand-made by Melissa. Thank you! Thank you!

Next, I've been honored with some awards...

from Baba/aka The Night Owl

from Tammy, VAIL, Nadine and Jenn

and from Dianne.

I've truly been blessed beyond measure! Thank you all once again.

Congratulations on being given these awards, especially the Change Begins at Home award, which is how I found your delightful blog. Aren't you going to nominate other people and pass the awards along, so I can find more great blogs and bloggers?

Shawna :

Those are a blessing. I don't carry purses often, but I'd "borrow" that one if I had the chance! And I think homemade gifts are the best!! Love the bookmarks!

melissa :

Wow Jill, congrats on all your winnings!! You are very deserving of them all.


BlondeMomBlog (Jamie) :

What a great week. I love the bag!!! And that sign is really cute.

I got two beautiful pairs of earrings in the mail yesterday from a bloggy friend (Fabulous Mrs. Fussypants...she is a hoot...ya'll should check her out!) I need to post a picture of them.

Blogging buddies are a great bonus!
