Gifts for me and a gift for You!

I am so very blessed! and it feels like Christmas came EARLY!

Here's the bad part of today - my right foot is giving me FITS.  I have a hard spot on the ball of my foot and it hurts to walk.  So I wore flats to work and still limped.  I am hoping some inserts and no heels for a few days works it all out.  Currently it feels as if there is a knife sticking through it every time I step.

Now for the GOOD news!  
There is a LOT of it to share.
First, check out my NEW blog button!

Design to Shine

Can you guess my favorite flower? ;-)
You can grab it over there --->>>>>
I can not tell you how grateful I am to Sharon at Good, True and Beautiful
who made my blog button and sent directions to me to get it all set up!
She did it as part of this...

THEN imagine my surprise when Lakeitha from Home to Three Duncan Boys left me a comment stating my mailbox would be getting lots of love soon.  I WON her magazine subscription give-away and guess what is coming to my mailbox?????!!!!!

I have ZERO magazine subscriptions.  So this is SUCH a TREAT for me!
I promise to share any ideas, recipes and such I use from the magazine with all of you.

So while I'm checking my email to make sure I have Sharon's blog name right ...I read where I have today in fact won another SWEET giveaway from Abbi at Proverbs 31 Living for linking in my recycled candle jar votive to her Homemade Christmas Link Party!  She made these beautiful Christmas tags which will be PERFECT on gifts under my country Christmas tree theme I am planning FRUGAL style (more on that to come *wink*).  Aren't they pretty?  Be sure to drop by her blog as she has more Homemade ideas in the coming weeks.

To top it ALL off, my blog has now surpassed 100 followers!  I am sending off a little surprise to my 100th follower, Sarah of The Fifth Street Academy. She is a crafty Mom of 2 little ones and I can't wait to put a small token of appreciation in the mail to her.  SOON I will hit my 100th post and I'm going to toss a Party with another give-away. 

You ALL have warmed my heart more than you could ever imagine.  EACH one of you that stops by, reads, leaves a sweet comment, follows or just shares your creativity with us all.  So I found this today and wanted to share it.  Even if you are not a coffee drinker it's a free sample paired with a cute Dollar Tree coffee mug would make a sweet little gift.

Bloggers are really a SPECIAL community of wonderful women and some men.  I felt that spirit as many prayed for little Stellan, who had heart surgery today.  I had tears in my eyes to know he pulled through and read the story from his mom's blog.  If you've not met MckMama then let me say, if you visit her blog take a box of tissues and enjoy their miracle story.
Give and Take
Whatever you give comes back to you. Whatever you take will not stay with you.
