Giveaway Thank You's

I've been blessed to win a few giveaways in the last several months, and I'm rather overdue in sending my thanks. Renee had a giveaway awhile back for this intriguing book (top photo), which is now patiently abiding in my 'to-read' pile. And Snapdragon's Garden kindly sent these lovely fabric, stitched butons all the way from the U.K. some time ago. Wayfaring Wanderer hosted an interesting green challenge last month and my name was drawn for Living Green, another book that looks fascinating. Finally, yesterday the sweet gals at Shutter Sisters held a contest for artwork by Amy Ruppel, and I was very delighted to find out I was the lucky winner. My warmest thanks to all of you for your generosity. I don't usually think of myself as a 'lucky person' when it comes to contests, but I feel I have been this autumn. And while I'm making my Christmas presents, I'm also planning a giveaway of my own to host, most likely very soon!
I should also mention that the wonderful Crafty Crow is holding giveaways this week for some delightful children's items. http://belladia.typepad.com/crafty_crow/. Also, my pen friend Cindy has a link to a good reminder about the importance of writing thank-you's.
Edited 12/09/08 I also need to thank the lovely Martha for the sweet giveaway package - some of her adorable cards, a Trader Joe's chocolate bar (very much appreciated since the great state of Texas does not have any TJ's!), tea, and a sweet Christmas card she made. And Renee has once again shared something from her home - a handmade bar of soap, which I cannot wait to put to use! Thanks, everyone! I appreciate the sweetness you've added to my days.

you did already thank me with the lovely card and book marks - that I use all the time! And I think of you, essentially a stranger in my life, each time I place one in one of my many books I'm reading. Maybe I should start saying a little prayer for you each time, you'd receive a lot of prayers!

Isn't it amazing how a personal gift connects you to someone vs. a storebought something. Interesting...

I'm happy you've been the recipient of so many blessing.

Take care, Renee

Thanks for your kind words, everyone! Renee, I smile to think of you saying a prayer for me when you use the bookmarks. You're right; handmade gifts really do connect us with people.

I'd like to know what you think of the book about food and faith. It sound interesting.
