Today was a marvelous working day. It is wonderful when one can really enjoy their "work" like Lynn does and I enjoyed watching her work. Lynn from Lynns Lovelies was so gracious to come to my home and help me with setting up my blog. It just needed so much help that it was hard to know where to begin. But Lynn plugged away on one thing at a time. We added some of my favorite music...fixed the header...and set up the link so that you can just click on any of my favorite blogs to see what all the fuss is about. The blogs I love best are now listed on my sidebar thanks to Lynn's work. I now "enjoy" all of her hard work and can not tell you how precious it is to have her for a dear friend. We even got to chat and do a swap while at my kitchen table. Lynn is going to make a new creation for a precious china doll that I have had for 36 years! My baby doll was given to me 36years ago when I had to have a hysterectomy therefore all hope of having another baby was gone. I was feeling so down when a dear friend made this baby and brought her to me to help me through the bad times. She is so sad looking with the doily head piece and the yellowed handmade shabby dress. It is all covered with spots and stains. I do not even have a name for her. I just call her "baby". She should get a name so maybe you could help me in naming her once she gets her precious new things. I have just decided what to do. I will have my first "giveaway" and she will finally have a name!!! Once Lynn is done redesigning her I will feature her and you can see the difference plus will get to be in the drawing to name her and I will make something very special for the winner! I am going to make Lynn a custom piece of jewelry from bead colors she choose. (How does one ever make an even exchange when there is so much love behind each hour we put into our creations?) It is like a Christmas surprise waiting and anticipating what will be coming my way.
Monica from The White Bench and Marcia from The Rustic Victorian wrote lovely comments that are so appreciated. (The pic of the Blarney Castle is courtesy of The White Bench) I had asked in my last post questions about giveaways and swaps. I knew from speaking with Kimberly Serendipit-Us that I should take their words as gospel. So it was exhilarating that they were the first two to respond! Plus I got to hear from Kimberly too. I feel like the new girl on the block and need all the help I can get. (Considering my son-in-love thinks I am a complete idiot when it comes to computer anything. But I am working on figuring out this blog stuff and my daughter hasn't set hers up so I am not too computer illiterate)
I would love to hear from anyone else about their responses to my questions. But most of all I appreciate your stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend, Sharon
