~ Give-Away winner ~

Well first you'll have to bare with me for a minute :)...I was completely overwhelmed by all your kind and wonderful words!! I enjoy these give-aways so much because it gives me a chance to show you all how much you mean to me. But with that, I ended up wanting to give away something to each and every one of you! I mean that! It seems that even though I'm hosting a give-away, it's really me who is getting the best gift of all! I got to peek into so many blogs that I haven't seen before and that was such a treat! You are all such inspiring and wonderful women! I want to Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of this wonderful world of blogging! And my answer to my own question is, like many of yours," blogging is simply the neatest thing since sliced bread :)"! Homemade of course :) Each blog is so unique and that homemade comment I just made isn't far from the truth, every blog is "home made" and the stories and people in them , are works of art! So before I type who won the draw, I want to say a Big THANK YOU to all who entered, I am so lucky to have such wonderful bloggettes as friends, both old and new!!

I used the random generator to pick the winner, and for everyone that did a post about it, I assigned another number to. It was a lot of work assigning the additional numbers , but the best kind of work ever! I got to visit your blogs all week and see such wonderful new ones! I can't wait visit again and stop in and say HI!

soooooo, drum roll please :)...... Congratulations to:

Kathleen Grace , From Kathy's Cottage!!

If you all haven't seen Kathy's Cottage yet, head on over now and say HI, she is such a sweetie and her blog is gorgeous too!! Congrats Kathy!!

Thank you all so much , for all your support , and for making my first year filled with so many wonderful and inspiring experiences! I wish you all a wonderful weekend ahead and many blessings!

Hugs and Gratitude,

~ Cynthia ~

Just a little something from Judy said...

Kathy is one lucky gal!! I agree with you, she does have a beautiful blog. As for your sentiments about blogging, I could not agree more. When I stepped into this blogging world, I had absolutely no idea what special people and things would be in store for me. I've been so blessed by so many. Cynthia, your kind, caring heart seeps out through every one of your posts. No wonder you have such a following.
