Honoring My Readers

I am so excited about this new format and ongoing dialog that I am writing! It's helping me with my creative process! I have come up with several new ideas--not to be shared yet--but you will love them, I am sure!!!! First . . .


I'm doing a giveaway.

WHO is it for?

It's for those of you who follow and comment.


Winner will be picked from a bag full of entries, by my little grandson, Padraic, on February 1st (his 7th birthday!)

HOW to participate:

1) If you have ever commented on my blog, you automatically have one entry! That's for the whole of last year!

2) Each comment to my blog from January 1st to the 31st will be entered into the drawing!

3) Each new blog follower will get another chance just for being a new participant!

4) If you recommend my blog to someone who becomes a new follower, I will give you two new chances to win. Please make sure your friend lists your name in the comment so I can give you credit.

All these entries will be put in a hat (actually a paper gift bag) and a winner will be drawn!

Winner will receive a 25$ gift certificate good in either of my shops! I will pay for the shipping of the item or items!

BONUS WINNER will be for the best 2010 comment of my choosing. Bonus winner will win a zipper pull of your choice or $8 toward any purchase in my Design shop.


Why? Because I love you! I love to get comments, most bloggers love feedback! And because I have had a blog for over a year now and haven't thanked my supporters, my readers! This one is for you!

Bye for now,
Abby . . . er . . . Linda!

Looking out my window, I see snow-covered hills, billowing fields of white, and squirrels sliding across the snow. Sipping orange tea, peaceful in my room, all is well with the world.
