My First Win!

I have been having computer issues for a while now. They were so bad yesterday that I didn't post. Now anyone who ever reads my blog knows that I post everyday. And yet, with all of the issues going on...I gave up. I couldn't post. I couldn't read. I couldn't even check email. It's partially fixed. So I have to make this short, in case it starts acting up again.

BUT...WOOHOO!! I am the lucky, lucky winner of Shelbi's Giveaway!! Have you read Keeper of the Chocolates? Shelbi is such a sweet person. Her heart is as big as she is. Her creations in her Etsy shop, Dancing Hannah Designs, as well as her writing are simply a joy to witness. And I am honored to win. Get this... I get the choice of any piece in her Etsy shop. WOO HOO!! Have you seen her designs? They're gorgeous!! I knew immediately which one I would choose if I was to win. It just spoke to my heart. But believe me, they're all beautiful. Thank-You, Shelbi for my first win!! I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Please go see Shelbi. If you are looking for that certain, perfect piece of jewelry that you just can't seem to find in the stores, I can guarantee you'll find it there!

#252 ~ Let someone else have the parking space you just found. Think of it as a gift to a stranger.

hmmm - my signature isn't showing!!

Good Morning Julie,
I'm sorry you have been having computer problems. I do hope you get them all worked out soon. "CONGRATULATIONS" on your first win. I know you are very proud. I still haven't won anything here in blogland yet. Maybe someday I will win. I will have to go visit Shelbi later on. I see your signature. It is there. I didn't post any this weekend myself. It was a busy weekend around here. I did post a little bit ago tho. Well, take care my friend and have a great Monday. May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Know all about computer problems; our home computer has apparently been infected with something and now it's acting weird.

And I still don't understand what good adware and spyware can do people if it shuts down your computer. Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it?

Congrats! Couldn't have happened to a more wonderful person!

Sandi said...

That's awesome, Julie. You deserve it!

I missed you yesterday. Glad you are back.... That was a great idea Shelbi had to mention the World Vision gift magazine in our blogs. Here post was so creative too! I don't get that much traffic, but I'll think about it. I love World Vision. They do amazing work all over the world (including the States) and it is a great organization to support.
