One Week Down and the Winner is........

I can't believe it has been a whole week. I also can't believe how many people have responded and joined the party. So many new friends!! There is another person that joined today, Yvonne, from Country Bliss and Vivlyn from Vivlyn Designs, so be sure and stop by and say Hello to them when you get a chance!

I love the Barbie Fairytopia movies and the other night I got to thinking about something that the Fairy Guardian Azura says. In the movie Elina (Barbie) goes to see Azura and Azura offers Elina some tea. The table is set for several people and when Elina asked if they are going to wait for the other guests, Azura replies with, “Those are for the friends that I never met”. I have always liked that saying. We should always be ready for the friends that we are going to meet because we never know where or how we are going to meet them. I have met so many wonderful friends through blogging. Friends that I would of never met otherwise!

Now for the winner.....................

Well, my stupid printer isn't working right so I am going to hand write all the names out and wait for Mallory to get home to draw a name. She gets home at 3:30 so I will put the winners name down her after she gets home. Sorry about that!!

Okay, the first giveaway winner is

Dianne from Dianne's Ramblings On

and Ezie wanted to draw a name too, so we went on and drew for a second giveaway, and

Susan from Suzie Buttons won that.
Congratulations both of you!!

I will get the giveaways out sometime this week. I have both of your address already from the Wizard of Oz Swap, that is unless they've changed.

Oh I just love that saying!!

How fun that the internet has allowed us to meet people from all over the world that we may otherwise and most likely never have had the opportunity to meet.

Enjoy your Monday :)

That's really sweet. My daughter's name is Azura and I can't wait til she is old enough to watch that movie...

I can't believe a few months ago I had no blogging friends and now I have so many wonderful people out there I know and cherish getting to know.

That's my favorite saying too.
I am so grateful that computers have made it possible to make friends with so many wonderful people. I think it's so exciting to see where in the world all my new friends are from!

I love those Barbie movies! It's so nice to have lessons taught to our children, and us moms as well, through something as simple as a cartoon. I'm going to have to work that phrase into my vocab this week.

Have fun, Beth
