1 year Blog-a-versary!

I turned the page today on my daily inspirational calendar and bingo..it is my blog-a-versary!!  That means that Ya'll have been watching my life scroll by for an entire year.  lol 

Instead of preparing for this momentus occassion...

I've been watching 2 teams of All-Stars doing their thing!  I'm so grateful that both my boys got to be on a team this season but I'm pooped out.

I've been inspired by a special friend who sent the most personal package ever on her blog-a-versary give-away.  She sent me this:
Serious Loot!  from a fabulous friend.  There was fabric, scrapbooking papers for sports, the cutest little scrapbook ever with a beagle on the front, 2 lil beagle statues and scrapbook embellishements, a home journal ME style and even the notecard was amazingly personal.

I love the ME fabric that has my favorite saying...
Bloom where you're planted.  She doesn't even know that I love fabric and have a stash going.  :0)
I sure hope you've all met Dawn at A Cottage State of Mind, otherwise, you are missing out.

Leave me a comment and I'll have my baseball boys help me figure out which blog gets the give-away and I'll come look around your place and send a xox package that suits you!

    Because I have won several drawings recently, I feel it is only fair that I give my chance to someone else. Maybe not fun for a magpie, but fair. LOL! I'll just take pleasure in wishing you all the best.
