I've Been As Lucky As A Leprechaun Lately

I've won not 1 but 3 giveaways over the last few months.  Can I take a minute to brag and show you my treasures?  I thought so, thanks!

#1 - I was the winner of Candy's birthday giveaway.  Lucky me won the 3 Birds on Parade cricut cartridge from Candy @  Candy's Craft Corner.  Who else but wonderful bloggers give someone else presents for their birthday.
Just look at this cute card Candy made yesterday. 
I love it!  She's so talented.  Her blog is full of creativity and she always has lots of giveaways to share.  I hope you'll stop by to visit her and tell her I said hi.  You want be disappointed.I

#2 - I won the devotional book Mornings with Jesus 2012 from Julie @ More Of HimI love devotionals and this is from Guideposts.  I now keep Mornings with Jesus next to my bed.  It's the first thing I read in the mornings.  I read and Neil listens and we pray right there in bed before we get started on whatever lies ahead for the day.
I keep another devotional on the kitchen counter that we read over lunch.  It's a great way to stay focused and jump start our conversation in a positive direction.

We have on more devotional that my cousin Bobbie gave us the day Neils mother died.  That was such a sweet gift and each day I'm reminded of her and the importance of family when we read it.  This one stays on the living room coffee table and we take a moment out in the evening to read it.  It's also from guidepost.

Julie @ More Of Him is a mother with a love for the Lord.  She enjoys reading, writing, and crafting of all kinds.  She has a kind heart and loves to make new friends so hop over to see her.  I'm sure you'll make her day and you'll be better for it too.

#3 - I won these adorable Felted Circus Lamb Ornaments from Ashley @ The Veater Family Adventures. These cute ornaments were created by Bossys Feltworks.  You can see their adorable items in there Etsy shop by clicking here.
Ashley's a self described pathological picture taker.  And she really does take beautiful photos.  I think this one of her daughter is so fun and cute.  Remember how fun and uninhibited it was to be a kid.  She captured that.  What a great picture to look back on.
Stop by Ashley's to find some fun inspiration.

Thanks to all these wonderful bloggers for hosting these giveaways and to their sponsors for realizing the power of the blog.  It's so fun to win and I feel lucky and blessed to have won each one.

Hugs Ya'll......Tracy ♥
