I've Been Blessed Twice!

First let me say, I have been blessed TWICE as I won 2 different giveaways!
Saturday I logged on to my Google reader clicked on Gina's "The Shabby Chic Cottage" and found the great news!  I had won  the book "The Artistic Mother" by Shona Cole.  Thank you, Gina!
 Shona  has a beautiful blog with some very thought provoking photographs.  In the book "The Artistic Mother" Shona has a 12 week course that helps you make the most of your time and space,  for your artistic passion.  So be watching for a more artistic me in the near future.

On Sunday Morning, this surprise was waiting.  The Second Giveaway I won was from Marie,
 Do you have subscriptions in your Google reader, that when you see the name in bold print you know, you are in for something good?  That's how it is with Marie's Lost Bird Studio blog.  You can always find inspiration there.  Thank you, Marie,  I will post the pictures as soon as the box arrives! 

Really, I must say I have been blessed in other ways as well. Since participating in Karen's Bloggerette Sorority and Where Bloggers Create hosted by Karen Valentine, I have made so many new blogging friends and Sisters!  Thank you, to both of you, not an easy undertaking to organize and host these events.  The Sorority  with over 200 members, is ongoing, so join us if you can. Due to all these new friends and Sisters I am thinking about a giveaway of my own.  I am thinking the number 75 may come into play.  I will see what kind of goodies I can come up with and make the announcement soon!

I have been ill this past week with Bronchitis and double ear infections.  I always think of the "I Love Lucy" episode where she says, "I've been sick" when I am feeling bad and it always brings a smile.  Pray for the antibiotics and steroids to help, so I can look for those goodies!

Congratulations, and I hope you feel better soon. Wait, that should be two separate sentences...they just do not sound right together, unless of course, I am congratulating you on feeling better, and I hope I am soon.

Congratulations! That is very exciting news. And maybe Lucy has some extra vita-meata-vegamin to help you get better. I absolutely adore "I Love Lucy". Feel better soon.
