I have connected with so many in ways that I might not have otherwise. It has broadened my universe. I am embarrassed to admit that I am a girl who has never physically travelled outside of the North American continent. But in my research, my conversations, my readings, and finally in my mind and heart, I have travelled far. This blog has helped me to communicate with so many I might have not otherwise met. My life is deeper and more rich.
So... as a sort of thank you, I want to offer up a giveaway. (Sorry for the terrible lighting of these photos. I need a professional, people!) These are a set of patchwork potholders that I've made. If I were a wealthy woman, I would give everyone a gift. Really. I would. Instead, I will make it a bit of a game. Nothing new in the blogging world, but not too complex either. Just leave a comment! I will close the comments to this post on July 31 at 8 pm eastern standard. (That's the time of night when my brain is mush and I'm sooo done for the day.) I'll announce the winner on Aug.1, Saturday. I know blogger can be tricky for some to log into, so feel free to log on "anonymous"; just be sure to sign an identifying name and email on your post. If you haven't left me an email, no biggy, but you'd better check back in. International shipping? Bring it on! (I just hope you don't cost me a small fortune. Honestly, though, I can't bear to leave out my Australian friends.) One last request, but no obligation... spread the word about my blog/giveaway/shop, if you will. I would love to connect with even more people in the next year. Life is simply an amazing adventure. Thank you for being a part of mine.
