My mailman had a couple surprises for me the last couple weeks. But between a vacation, trying to get 3 teens organized to take a look at what they have for back to school and what they need, and being sick, my brain, I think, has turned to mush. So I am just getting around to showing you.
Remember the great big giveaway hosted by Shannon back in July? Well, I won a few of the wonderful prizes. I'm still awed at how huge that giveaway became.
The first was from Ann at It's Always A Production . She gave away three prizes that day and I won the her lovely pysanky egg! I love those lovely Russian painted eggshells. And this one is ultra special to me because Ann made it herself and it's just beautiful. And she sent me a postcard with one of my all time favoritest things on it which is a hot air balloon! Thank you, Ann! I treasure both!
The other was the Glory Revealed CD from Jenny over at Home is Where You Start From. I was excited to listen to this CD because so many of you have raved about it. And it's wonderful. Thank you Jenny, it really ministers to me.
Both of these are quite special to me because they were from ladies who started blogging about the same time I did and we've sort of gone on this blogging journey together. Thanks ladies! Now there is one more thing but I'll save that for later. And I hear rumor hath it that there just might be another giveaway this fall.
Updated: Speaking of getting something in your mailbox, how would you like the postman delivering a brand new HP PhotoSmart Printer to your door? Ya? You like? Well, if you'd like a chance at that, head over to Janice and Susan's 5 Minutes for Mom where they are giving one away. Yup, you read that right!
