Naomi so happy for you and Michal. Thank You for dropping by my blog and asking how I was...I am fighting the flu--nothing serious but sniffles and dribbles are keeping me from doing my usual blogland rounds

Sarah said...

On thing I love about the craft blogging world is all the inspiration and friendships that I have made through my crafting journey. I have found that most craft bloggers are more than will to share how they made something or help with ideas.

Hi Naomi,
Bloggie world introduced me to followers who are now friends.It allowed me to share ideas and be inspired by others.But most of ALL it allowed me to become the person that I am today and everyday better.Better in the sense of my feelings,being Sensitive to others,humble,caring,loving,compassionate and I pray more than ever.During this Bloggie journey I have learned that there is a thing called Happy Tears I get that alot.If I wake up and I am not myself that morning,I know that once I go into bloggie world I will find the joy,laughter and the motivation that I need to turn my frown upside down...LOL and into a Joyful Smile!!Its that EASY!!and just when I question,lord is this where I should be,I come across bloggie friends like you,Nana,Karen,Lisa and many more with posts about a project or something personal to share and I take a moment to catch my breath and replied to the lord,"yes I know this is where you want and need me to me"...So I say THANK YOU bloggie world for allowing me to give a HUGE amount of Bloggie LOVE to every single person I have met!I am a little person but I have HUGE heart that now can love others,inspired others,and can comfort others if needed...and If I need some love I know I can count on my Bloggie Friends...
Sending a HUGE amount of bloggie love to you and Michael,
Migdalia

Hi Naomi, I am a new follower. I'm looking forward to seeing your posts come across my Blogger dashboard.

Hallo again,
I don't really do the Facebook thing, but let me tell you what I'm grateful for in blogland: the amazing network of challenges! I'm quite certain I would have fallen into a rut without them. But by entering challenges or even being inspired by old prompts, I've tried all kinds of things in just a very short time, and I'm learning more every day.

Lisa said...

You are so generous my friend!! What an awesome giveaway!! Of course I'm a happy follower :)

I am a new follower, so I was unaware that you were collecting cards, I will go back and read your posting!

Super fun giveaway! I am a follower already but don't have facebook!

I am so grateful for all my blogging friends that have now become email/text/tango friends! Carri~Abusybee

I am thrilled that you got so many responses. I was hoping to make another card. Just hoping I can do it before that baby comes. :) I will go to your fb page. You know I'm already a follower here. This is a great giveaway.

I love "blogland" b/c the friends that I have made that I wouldn't have made otherwise. I have been so blessed to meet many of them in real life. Probably way more than the average person. I don't think I would have been able to do scrapbooking or cardmaking without the computer & my online friends. I have learned so many things from them. I haven't been doing this craft for long, especially the digital stamps, which of course need a computer. I just started a little less than a year ago. If I hadn't met the people I did along the way I wouldn't have known about them, nor learned how to do them. The Internet is a well of information but talking to people who have tried certain methods & know what really works & what doesn't is much more efficient. Nothing can replace the friendships you make along the way!!! :)

Hi I have started to follow your blog after you blogged about your son Michael. This touched my heart deeply as I try to give back lots from sending my homemade cards to all different organizations. But I love it when it goes to someone in Canada. I support Sendasmile4kids.blogspot.com as they give cards to hospitalized children in B.C., Alberta and Ontario. So I thought I would share this with you and people who read your blog.
Congrats on all of your followers! I hope you get many more. Please put my name in the draw.

Hi Naomi, How is your Michael doing? Standing with you and praying for you and Michael. One thing I like about the bloggy world is meeting people like you and the inspiration you are to me. I think I am following you every way possible, LOL even a f.b. follower and a networking follower. I have your blog site on my desk top and I'm in here every day as you probably know. Thank you for a wonderful blog and your postings that keep me coming back LOL . Hugs, Cathy K

What I am most thankful for in bloggy land are the opportunities that have arisen to use this creative passion for a higher purpose. :o) While I am certainly thankful for the friendships, blessing others with cards reigns supreme. :o) Oh how thankful I am for you!

Hugs and blessings!
