Swappy Ladies UNITE!

Yesterday I received my 300th comment…and it was from my sweet girl!  Thanks for all of your comments~I love getting them.  Some days I get sad because I can see that I’ve had a considerable # of views and only 1 or 2 comments…or none at all!  😦  This is how I feel about that (weren’t you just dieing to know?). I feel that this is a community.

com·mu·ni·ty \kə-ˈmyü-nə-tē\

a: an interacting population of various kinds of individuals in a common location b: a group of people with a common characteristic or interest together within a larger society c: a group linked by a common policy

In order to be a part of a community, you have to be just that a part, a contributor…i.e. write you own blog…blog surf…leave comments…etc……! I remember when I left my first one, I was a little nervous…but, because of it I won a give-a-way. WOW!  Even before I had won anything, it felt so good to leave that comment – I felt like I was part of something.  Now I leave comments all over the place…but only if something just jumps out at me – I definitely don’t leave a comment on each one I read.  I really didn’t mean to go into all of this and I really just did it to encourage you to think about taking that step of regularly leaving comments at the blogs you visit.  It make is all more fun.

This is actually why I’m writing this post…………………………

For those of us who have signed up for the Swappy Ladies Autumn Gift Exchange, it’s getting very close to the time for sending our sweet, repurposed creations on their way.

Here is just a small glimpse of some goodness that I’m working on…

Yesterday I had a full and wonderful day.  I had my parents, aunt and uncle and their friends for dinner.  In the afternoon, just the gals came over for tea.  It’s so rewarding to share our hearts and our home with dear people…so very rewarding.  We are trying to bless others and in return we are so very, very blessed.

Ladies, please come for tea anytime…I would love to have you.
