Goodbye Blogtoberfest, Hello Giveaway Winner!

Hello everyone! Thank you all for your comments on my last post! I've been working on keeping up the positive outlook and your comments have been so helpful in keeping my spirits up - with so many wonderful folks in my corner, things have just got to change for the better soon =-)!

***   ***   ***

I can't believe it's November and Blogtoberfest has come to an end. It was great to find a few new bloggers and it was a challenge to post everyday but I did it!

Many, many thanks to Tinniegirl, our "Hostess with the Mostest", for hosting this wonderful event for another year, and many thanks to Curly Pops, for coordinating all the fabulous giveaways at her site.

Many thanks to those of you who stopped by to participate in my giveaways this past month! I'll be having a few more giveaways in the upcoming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for them...

In the meantime, here is the winner of last week's knitting themed giveaway, with help from my dear boyfriend who pulled the name out of a hat:

Congratulations! Be sure to contact me with your mailing address so I can send off the goodies by the end of the week...

books, yarn, needles and some lovely mitts for Faith Hope & Cherrytea...

October has been quite a month of blogging so I'll be taking a break this week, but my next post is my 200th blog post and I've got a little surprise for you all to celebrate. I hope you'll stop by to celebrate this momentous occasion!!

This month is going to be full of activity for me because I've signed up for a few great projects:

  • I signed on for round two of the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap - I can't wait to see what everyone creates this time around!
  • I'm joining in the Sketchbook Project!! I'll be sharing my progress on it until I mail it off to be postmarked by January 15, 2011
  • I'm doing the "Journal Your Dreams" online workshop offered by Amelia at 101 Bird Tales - I'm very excited about this project because it comes the week of my 45th birthday! I mentioned doing a big vision board for my "personal new year" and Amelia's online workshop will be perfect! If you want to join the workshop, check out her site HERE...

I'll be joined by Louise Gale who is planning an e-course on making vision boards at her site soon. She's also starting the Creative Color Challenge Ornament Swap this week and I'm planning on joining in the fun...

Yes, November is going to be a busy month!

I hope you have a great week of fun and creativity!!
