Hi Sandee: I was very blessed to find your sweet blog tonight, and I had A LOT to look at. OK, now that I've seen it all, I want to comment as follows:
In learning a new word each day, how many do you actually retain to the point of being able to use them in conversation or in your written vocabulary? I'm very curious because I once knew a lady who did this and she had the most extensive and impressive vocabulary I've ever know, so this interests me quite a bit.

Second, I must say that you are icredibly creative. You have so many sweet projects, and you are able to think and craft "outside the box". Your creativity is not one-dimensional, and you have a lot of versatility in your art. I admire this skill.

Lastly, I want to tell you about a couple of challenges where I'd just LOVE to have you play along.
One is Word Art Wednesday - Always Anything Goes and many weeks are double prize weeks (new challenge starts Wednesday) and you can enter 5x week.
here is that blog addfress:

Next is V's Sweet Ideas. Their challenges are monthly, and their current theme is LOVE and the prize is a $15 Freckled Fawn gift certificate. You can enter this one 2x month.

I have chewed your ear quite a bit, but I really enjoyed your blog and it was definitely worth all the time I spent browsing. I WILL be back. I'd also like to invite you to my personal blog. Whew! I've given you A LOT of information. My personal blog is:
www.karen-mycuprunnethover.blogspot.com and if you would like, we could follow one another's blogs. I always like to ask permission first - just in case. But you are welcome to follow mine, and I'd like to follow yours if that's OK with you.

Have a blessed week and thank you for letting my ramble a bit. I know it's a lot of information to process, but I look forward to seeing more of your art, and so I told you all this in the hopes we will connect.
Hope to see LOTS more of your wonderfully creative art and talents.

I heard there was a giant adorable frog over here looking for my lips and I can see that I heard right! Mwah!!

(I also heard you were getting some nasty weather over there tonight. I hope the power stays on, Sandee, and there is no flooding.)

Channa said...

Hi Sandee, just wanted to say welcome to FD. Looking forward to work together.

Winnie said...

Tracy said...

Top of the morning to you Sandee..he is beautiful!!

Pam said...

Hi Sandee! I just love this little frog with his "big ole" web feet! You did a great job! Thanks for your comment on my scrapbook page! I wanted to keep it very simple to focus on the vintage black and white photo. Oh, I love the television too!

Claudia N. said...

:)) Sandee, we really could not have taken a more different approach on the theme... *giggle.

Love your prince...he IS a prince, isn't he? - or does HE kiss me, which brings me some good luck instead of a prince (to be honest: I would prefer the luck *lol). You see - I am not really up to date when it comes to frogs kisses...

Love the fresh green in midwinter!
