I Won!!!

A few weeks ago, I entered my first ever giveaways. I never thought anything would come from it, but it seemed like the “popular” thing to do in this new blogosphere that I’ve discovered. :)  I couldn’t believe when I found out that I had won two of the giveaways (the others haven’t closed yet, so my fingers are still crossed)! My first win came from Marenda Stiles at ButterFly Flutter. I won a beautiful cross to hang in my house. Thanks Marenda! It is more beautiful in person than in its picture.




My second win was thanks to Christy Klein at Wired Whismy. Christy designs beautiful jewelry and sells them in her Etsy shop. The giveaway was for mommy and daughter matching necklaces. Christy went way beyond the call of duty when she saw that I had two daughters and made an extra one so we could all match. Thanks Christy! My girls will love getting these in their Easter Baskets!

Wendy said...

Wow! Congratulation, Kel, on winning these beautiful things! (Do you always win things? I know at times that has been the case for me, where I would win every time there was a drawing--it was almost weird; but now I rarely win anything! That's ok, though:)
It's really sweet that you and your daughters will be able to wear matching necklaces--I'm sure they will love that!
Blessings,
Wendy
P.S. Thanks for your comment back on the public school safety post; I will come back and read your post from earlier about the sexting thing. I find comfort in knowing that my Heavenly Father is in control of all things, and that nothing will happen to me, or my children, without His allowing it, or sending it.

Than you for mentioning my shop, Kel! If you get your camera to behave long enough, I'd love a pic of the three of you wearing your necklaces!

I see that all the comments above are mentioning a Follow Friday deal. I'm only aware of the one on twitter. What's this blog one.... must know!!

And since I'm here, I can totally replace the blue with purple. Let me know what shade of purple you're looking for.

Kel said...

Christy - Look at my side bar for the Friday Follow button. That will send you the McLinky that you can join. It is such a great way to meat new bloggers. Let me think on the purple. Thanks!!!

I never enter giveaways, because I always think that I don't qualify because I live in Australia, but recently I have won two, without even knowing I had entered!

Gotta love a freebie!

Anyway, came over from Friday Follow and now I am following you.
