Warm and fuzzy post...

I had already planned on the title of this post when my sister emailed me this article with the same name. It's from a freelance writing site. I thought it would be fun to share, since it's all about blogging pals. The question is asked, why do we need our blogging pals? The author answers 1.) No one understands you as well as another blogger. 2.)You’ll get more work. 3.)You get sick day help. 4.) You might find some good long-term partnerships 5.) Your friends will rally around you. 6.) Your overall workload lessens. 7.) Friendly competition. Each one of these is expanded on in the article. Good food for thought.
Thanks, Laura!
So what would you say are the major benefits for you when it comes to having blog pals?
Speaking of friends, I got some fun mail on Friday that perked me up. Ms Amy from inspireco sent me an invite to be in on some of the fabulous changes you'll be seeing from her soon. Can't wait! Also got the newest issue of Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion. It's so bright and cheery. Heather Bailey is featured.These fun goodies are from One Ripe Peach on etsy. Love the extras she included:)

This random project goes to an undisclosed recipient. Definitely warm and fuzzy...
At an estate sale today I came across this little snuggle buns for literally a pretty penny. I put her in the middle of the wreath I bought from Katie Runnels and she seems mighty happy:)
Hope you're having a good weekend!

Warm and fuzzy indeed, right down to the fuzzy bunny wreath :)

What's great about having blogging friends? Everything!!!

Amy asked for my address, but of course it'll take longer for her letter to reach me.

Thanks for all the pretty, Springy sights! LOVE Mary Engelbreit mags.

Chenille!? I remember having one of those bedspreads as a little girl! I used to love pulling one string and having it come out long enough so that my Mom would not see it, but I could make a Cats Cradle and other string games. I forgot Easter is coming soon! Gotta get busy on the decorations, too!

PS...you are never alone with blogging friends, there is always something new and exciting to talk about or exchange and the relationships almost always last longer than the comments section.

Hello-Just wondering if I made it into the vintage party swap? I tried to email you, but didn't hear back. Just didn't want to let anyone down if they were waiting to hear from me :) Always love to visit your site!! And, the best part about blogging friends; they actually "get" why I like to play with craft supplies all day!!!! hee hee!

That means my Home Companion should be here shortly! Hurray!
My blogging friends are such an encouragement!

ahh chenille....warm and fuzzy indeed!

blog friends are my greatest source of inspiration. when I've lost my mojo I can usually find it again in a couple clicks.

sometimes it blows my mind how small this crafty world can be. One Ripe Peach buys things from my etsy shop, you buy from her and I read your blog...thats less than 7 degrees my friend!
