You make me happy....


Wow, what an amazing day in the blog-o-sphere! Thank you to everyone that stopped by and supported Tara's book yesterday. I will keep the blogroll up on my sidebar for awhile, so you can all continue to visit the wonderfully passionate bloggers that are a part of this vibrant, supportive blog community. I am so honored to be a part of it all. You can also re-visit the party post below and the comments with links to hear about the inspiring stories of why people blog and the impact on their lives. Thanks for being such strong allies of living the creative life and for sharing your authentic selves with us all.

The winner of the book giveaways is....Andrea @ Andrea Creates. Congrats!

Have a blissful day!

I love visiting all the participants. For some reason my blog did not get on the party list. Maybe I didn't do something I should have when commenting? So happy that Tara's book is #1, what an accomplishment.

I have loved going to the different blogs and reading why everyone gets started blogging. I didn't get to all the blogs but I will. Thank you for hosting the party. I went and picked up Tina's book yesterday so I can get some inspiration to get my blog back up and running.

Yikes! I'm a day late! I received my copy of the book from Amazon last night and started reading it and now have just begun looking at the participants in the party! Thank you for leaving the bloglist up for a while as I would love to have a chance to read them all!Thank you for hosting this party and I can't wait to see more of your blog and meet more fellow kindred spirits....Yes, when I discovered blogging in February...I do think I found my bliss!
Take care, Laura

I am so sad to have missed the blog party. My son was just married and I have been so very busy with all of the details of that day. Summer has flown by without notice from me this year.. but the festivities are over and I am able to get back to my pasttimes. I have quite a large quantity of posts to catch up on.
