I Copied This From Beatrice Banks!

I just cut and pasted this entire post from Beatrice Banks because I wanted you to see just how pretty her blog is! I was lucky enough to be chosen to participate in her big giveaway, and it has been such a pleasure working with her and the other featured merchants. Please do yourself a favor and stop by and see her and the other participants. You'll see some gorgeous stuff and hopefully make some new friends along the way! BIG HUGS! Carla




I'm celebrating 600+ following friends!  Sometimes blogging can be a love/hate relationship.  Can't live with it and cant' live without it.  Either time or inspiration lacks momentarily and we all think of quitting, or at least a lot of us do.  But we keep blogging because it's fun. 
I am so very grateful for all the wonderful friends I've met.  Your words of encouragement, creativity and ingenious posts are such a great source of inspiration.

So with gratitude...

It's a $125 shopping spree provided by me and 5 other awesome and kind sponsors!

1.  $25 Ebay gift certificate from Beatrice Banks
2.  $20 gift certificate from Burlap and Blue
3.  $20 gift certificate from Cards by Carla
4.  $20 gift certificate from Raggy Girl Vintage
5.  $20 gift certificate from Cotton Breeze
6.  $20 gift certificate from Bella Rosa Antiques 

These shops have fabulous stuff!  Check them out by clicking on the above highlighted names.

It has become increasingly difficult to keep up with everyone. At one point, I kept all of my followers on the sidebar and would visit daily. Now I randomly choose a few to visit each day along with those who visit me.  I don't like it but, it's a time factor.  I've learned, "The lack of commenting is not the lack of interest."  I'd like to hear your ideas on this or another great blogging tip.
