Getting so much back from giving!

As you may know, I love to give and share and am a bit shy about receiving, but that doesn't stop me from joining in giveaways like the current one hosted by Lisa, "One World, One Heart".

The past two days I have received so many wonderful notes from participants, and am enjoying their blogs immensely. This is why I encourage you to join in giveaways, challenges, get to meet people who you possibly would have never met otherwise. As I was reading emails and putting giveaway entries in a special folder this morning, I ran across a gal named Beth Bricker who lives in MI. Her son lives near me in Valpo, where I taught the Inner Child doll class last Saturday. Why does this excite me? Well, take a look at her blog and you will see. She loves tag sales, junk, jewelry making, soldering, I saw some CQ,...etc. OMG!I have no idea where in MI she lives, but we must get together someday. She wants to make an Inner Child doll, so perhaps that will be the "key",LOL. Perhaps a private class in my studio in exchange for showing me how she created petals shaped glass for soldering a flower????????
Did I mention she met and attended a class by Sally Jean? Oh man! I would give all my silk ribbon to have a class with Sally Jean.( I could always order more :-))

I am not much of a traveller, but I will have to start buying maps I think.
I hope I didn't scare her away...I may sound like a stalker..oh dear! Beth, if you are out there and by chance reading this, I am not a crazy lady...well I kind of am but not in the "phsyco" way.


  1. If I get nothing else from these blog giveaways I will be happy just in finding your blog! If you only knew how obsessed I became about your beach CQ book in Quilting Arts. You are awesome!!!

  2. Pat, you are just too cute. If I ever get into your neck of the woods, I'll have to look you up!
