BLOG CANDY TIME

I know I haven't really posted lately with being sick and the holidays and of course my birthday. I am almost 100% better and much to my surprise when I signed on tonight I see I have over 10 thousand hits which really excites me because I never thought that would happen. I know I am not big time like some of you but I am so excited and feel so blessed over my hits that I am going to offer blog candy. I am not sure what it will be but I am going to make it something really good because You guys have been good to me. Lets see what I want you to do......Sogn my guest book if you haven't already and then tell me something good you did for someone else this holiday season. what I did was win a contest at work for the most improved store in raising money for childrens miracle network, My prize was $200.00 and instead of keeping it for myself I put on a in store holiday party for the employee's at my store complete with a secret santa. They couldn't thank me enough and as far as I am concerned they deserved it and it raised moral so much it was incredible. Thanks for stopping in and thanks for all the kind comments while I was sick. Happy New Year Everyone

I apologize

I haven't been around much in the last week. I was so sick with a sinus infection that I couldn't stand being on the computer. I couldn't even think straight. I think I am on the mend now and as soon as I take the pictures I will post a couple of Birthday cards I received this week. Thanks for stopping in.

Its fun visiting different blogs and seeing how creative people are. If you like meeting different people who are creative then this is for you. I found a lot of your blogs on splitcoast or people recommended your blogs and I was amazed at what all of you can do. These people in the sbs are very talented to and the hopes is to gain stamping friends. Go check it out and see what you think. they are on the 3rd group so I know I am not the only one looking for fellow stampers. Thanks for stopping in.
