Blog "Stalking" Winner!

All I have to say is WOW!! I guess I've been "Blog Stalking" more frequently lately, and as a result I have found several cool Swap sites, as well as some GREAT GIVEAWAYS!! I have even run into some old crop buddies along the way. You never know who belongs to a group or who is lurking behind that computer screen - such a small world!

I found this site Gypsy Rose Paperie. They are a new site who is going to offer kits which will include vintage pieces, new pieces, just neat stuff. The next few weeks, on Mondays, they will be offering a "tease" kit giveaway. Check out their site and follow their directions - drawing is on Wednesdays until their release. I won this from them last week...

Thanks girls - I can't wait to see what you have in the future!!

And here I found a couple of Autumn/Halloween Swaps: A Swap for all Seasons (I joined this one today) and Gypsy Mermaid Life Swap (cool music on their site). This swap signup ended today, but if you like Halloween, check it out!

I guess all in all, I'm trying to find my "niche" - where do I belong? Do I belong in the contemporary, new stamp company scene, Stampin' Up! stuff, or the vintage, whimsical set?? I guess I'm trying both at the moment, and maybe I might find that I am truely best in the middle of the road. I have a hard time deciding because I like doing a variety. Hmmm, I guess for only being in the "Blog World" for almost a year, I've got to give myself a little more time. Stay tuned to see what I come up with next!

5,000 hits and my blogaversary is right around the corner so I think I'll have to give some candy away.

In closing (FIN-AL-LEEEE! I think I'm taking after Joyce here! *wink*)I wanted to share this photo I took today when I was cleaning out our sunroom....I looked up that here it was....a baby deer in the Suburbs! I always treasure these moments....

Until tomorrow friends....

Hi Bev~
I just signed up for the swap-sounds like fun! Your winnings are great and I'm sure you'll create some lovely things with them. I'm working on something for Michele M's birthday which was yesterday. I'll post it after I give it to her tomorrow.
I loved the deer pic-don't you feel like it's a little gift from God when we get to see something like that? Have a great day....enjoy this beautiful weather we're having. See, even my comments are long-winded!!!!

Congrats on the goodies from Gypsy Rose!! And sorry that store owner was a weiner. I don't know why some store owners act so lame but I guess the only thing to do is shop somewhere else...enjoy your goodies!!

Hi Bev! Glad you enjoyed your goodies! Your vintage stuff is beautiful... but I agree, middle-of-the-road is sometimes just a good place to be. ;) Can't wait to see what you create with your new kit!
