3rd Blogiversary and Giveaway

 I am celebrating my blogiversary.
 3 years ago I started this blog.


It has been a real journey so far and I have been glad to be blogging all along the way. I have been very thankful for the followers and commenter's on my blog... for all of you that read my blog regularly. I also like new followers and readers.

I have enjoyed the meme's and the carnivals, sharing information and pictures of my family, info and pictures of me and my hubby, TOS Crew reviews, reviews of books and materials we like and use/read, spiritual posts and music, health and fitness, homeschooling, lapbooking, workboxes and Winterthur. It has been grand and I pray it will continue to be so. I pray along the way I lifted you spirits, helped you gain knowledge or understanding, and helped you laugh. I thank you for sharing yourselves with me on your blogs and in your comments. I also want to thank you for your encouragement and for your prayers for myself and my family. Please continue praying especially about my husband needing a job after more than a year of unemployment.
In honor of my 3rd blogiversary I am going to be giving away  
3 homemade items

to one winner

Here is what you could win


First we have 2 hot pads.
My daughter Rachel made these especially for this giveaway.

They are machine washable and filled with 100% cotton batting.


The 3rd item is a journal.
It is a composition notebook that I covered and decorated with scraps of wallpaper.
I love doing this.
I also used cardstock for the the verse on the front.
The back has the same wallpaper without the ladybug or verse.

 and inside the journal, to cover the wallpaper that wraps over from the outside,
I continued the lady bug theme from the front
using a different wallpaper scrap.
