I'm so excited to be a part of this! Vicki over at '2 Bags Full...' is generously hosting this event, and I'm sure it's an understatement to say it has been no small amount of work on her part to make this event happen. So first and foremost, a big thank-you goes out to Vicki for making this fun, (not so little) event possible.
The reason I'm bothering to enter my blog in at all is because it is so much fun discovering other thought-provoking and creative blogs and to have others find my blog interesting as well. I enjoy visiting the blogs I follow, especially the 'daily-life' blogs and gradually but surely building pen-pal type relationships around the world.
I like writing and hearing about all the different weather we are experiencing, the projects people are working on, the various things we are going through, from sad to happy and everything in between. Life is so much more interesting when we get to share our experiences, and there is such a wide variety of experience from day to day, that when I walk away from reading all the different posts, I feel very balanced.
Another little tidbit about me is I enjoy working with wire and beads. I make jewelry mostly, but I also have fun making these whimsical, little bookmarks. They are often personalized, as I sell a lot of them locally, but many of them are general, like the one in the photo. As part of the party, and as a thank-you to all who stop by and leave a comment on this post, I will enter your name into a draw for the bookmark you see here. It is made from copper wire which is stamped, "so many books so little time". It is embellished with a chip of polished onyx in a little, copper cage. I will make the draw and announce the winner in a separate post on February 15. But, just in case you miss that post, please make sure I can easily get in touch with you from your comment, so if you win, I can get a mailing address from you.
Have fun with this party, and I hope you find plenty of blogs that interest you and make some friends along the way. And again, thanks for visiting!
