it’s always better with candy

i ♥ the handmade/blogging community.  the group of people putting creativity to work.  the belief in themselves that they can accomplish a goal, a dream, a handmade something.

a lovely, industrious place on this scary, complicated interwebs thing.

sometimes i even comment on their lovely, inspiring blogs.

&,  i LOVE giveaways.  LOVE THEM.  although, frankly, throughout my life, i’ve yet to be very lucky at winning much that i didn’t work for or put in a lot of effort first.

enter:  I BLOG 4 ME.  coolest lady ever that just loves blogs, and made a site where fellow bloggers could come and meet, share stories, and encourage each other, for no other reason, than she is nice, & she likes blogs.

she gives away stuff sometimes:  drumroll please…..i WON!

a nifty, neat-o, colorful, really well made GUMBALL MACHINE.

you know alex reese and rl are overtheMOON about this one!  🙂

(and let’s pretend like i’m all sophisticated and didn’t jump for joy when i found out and didn’t squeal…..)

it came with two bags of 2 lbs of gumballs, so we should be set for at least a few months weeks.  🙂

so this is my official thank you to Vic  check her out here  & BJ here.

& if you have the time, check out some of the blogs featured, fantastic time, i tell ya!

i really appreciate it, and in some strange way, it seems like i finally belong to this community that i read/stalk/drool over daily.  you really have helped encourage me to keep blogging!

ps.  this winning thing just happened again, & is just another hint, that i need to get my shop up and running.  what do you want me to make, or better yet, what is your favorite handmade thing to buy?
