200,000 Hits

I'm so amazed!  As of today, I have 250 followers and am just under 1000 hits away from 200,000!!!!

Thank you all for your continued support and love.  You have no idea how much it means to me to have all of you "cyber" friends out there.

Sometimes I feel like I'm just jabbering away into the proverbial wind.  But to know that there are people who faithfully read what I have to say, enjoy seeing my latest crafting projects, and genuinely care about my family means the world to me.  It's humbling, and inspiring at the same time!

So, to say thank you, I'm going to do a little giveaway!  Post a comment here, and once my hit counter reaches 200,000, I will randomly select 1 person to win 30 handmade cards!  (That's a $90 value!)  The winner can select either general themed cards (an assortment of birthday, thank you, thinking of you) or they can select Christmas cards!

Please just one entry per person!  But feel free to tell your friends.  :)

Whoo Hoo, Nona! I have enjoyed following your craft ideas, but mostly your life. (Not to sound like a stalker) But, I first started reading when Sammy was around 2 (is that right?) and have followed your story through Evan, then the un-named baby, then precious Ruby and now this sweet miracle you are carrying. Your faith has never ceased to amaze me. We serve a mighty God and your reminders of that are so refreshing. So, I will continue to read and follow and mostly continue to pray for you and your precious family.

I was a CTMH consultant for two years and somehow came across your blog, I think using the consultant bulletin boards. I have always loved to visit your blog to see your creations, your knitting (I love to knit too) and your family which is so sweet.

Melissa Kosena said...

Hi! I love your blog and your artwork. It's always clean and fabulous!

Emily said...

I've stayed up too late now catching up on your life backwards - I'm only to June of this year but I'm soaking it in and enjoying how much you're living out a life of abundance! I think I'll need to order a knitted hat for Naomi from you for Christmas since her head is so big. It's hard to find things in stores, and homemade is so much cuter! It blesses me to see your family is still walking closely with Jesus.

Jessica said...
