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?
