My 1000th post! I did it!

On March 20, 2008, I began a journey to blog about my family, my creative projects, my life as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and the many other things that are going on in my life.   Some weeks I posted alot, and sometimes not at all, but I did it…….and I kept on doing it!  Here is what we looked like in 2008 (posted on my first entry).  That’s Malachi — for those who have been around through all the foster babies….

And here we are during Spring Break of 2013, with another little one who is still in our care.  I don’t particularly care for this photo of me…but it is the most recent photo of all 5 of us — 7 months ago!  I have great pictures of the kids, but none of ALL of us.  Kinda sad!



Oh, my, how times have changed.  Two gone away to college, one a junior in high school, and 17 foster babies later…..God has been so good.

And now for the GIVEAWAY!!!!  Here is a photo of the items I have decided to give away!!!  To enter, you must leave a comment.  I will draw on Thursday night approximately 10 p.m.  I will have the winner posted no later than Friday morning at 8 a.m. and I will also send you an email so we can arrange deliver of your goodies!


Giveaway includes:  Starter package of cardstock, kit to create Heart Shaped Sampler, Glue Dots, Snowflake Soiree Stamp Set, Just for You  single stamp, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Desktop Post it note holder, variety of felt accents for gift tags or cards, 2 stampin’ spots.  And as I mentioned previously, I will add something special for YOU if you win, so that it is extra special and “just for you”.  That’s just the way I like to do things 🙂

Thanks to all of you that have kept up with me and loved me all these years.  Some of you have been through some huge mountains and deep valleys with me.  God bless each of you!
