"Real" Mail & Winners

I absolutely love getting "real" mail, not bills or advertisements, but something that was sent especially for me - like the wonderful package that arrived from Rebekah last week with three bars of homemade soap (lavender soap, purple flybaby soap, carrot facial soap) AND a soap dish! Thanks Rebekah!


And now I'm ready to send out some "real" mail. The first package contains A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg, February's Pass the Book (the fun book chain started by Sian). Fourteen of you signed up for a chance to be the next one to enjoy this book. I consulted my Resident Random Number Generator (also known as Robbie), and the winner is . . .

Beverly who said ... Oh, this is my knid of recipe book! LOVE the idea of a clipon timer, hasn't never crossed my mind, genius ;) April 11, 2011 1:11 PM

I hope y'all enjoyed Mel's Alphanumeric Blog Hop yesterday - I had so much fun hopping around. I also have to say that I learned some things along the way (who knew 5 was a Fibonacci number!) and gained some inspiration (must try the inking technique with chipboard negatives) and am in the draw for a ton of goodies (washi tape, scrappy goodness, art cards, TimTams). A wonderful way to spend some time in blogland on a relaxing Sunday. I enjoyed visiting some of my favorite blogs as well as many new-to-me blogs. Many thanks to Mel for organizing such a fabulous hop!

Which leads to the second package I have prepared to send out - a packet of yellow scrappy goodness. The random winner of this prize is . . .

Carrie Rosalind who said ...Yellow is one of my favorite colors too, and I would love to win a yellow giveaway! Super cute post! :)  April 17, 2011 1:24 PM

Beverly & Carrie Rosalind please email me at robbieandmelissa(at)sbcglobal(dot)net with your mailing addresses.

Today is the first day of Shimelle's new class, Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers, and prompt one encourages us to find out what it is our readers most enjoy about our blogs. I've added a quick survey below - please take a moment to click on the things that you enjoy reading about on my blog. You can choose as many as apply. If I missed something, please be sure to let me know in the comments. I'll share the results later this week as I progress through this new class.

How fun! I need to dig into this new class! I'm afraid I didn't keep up very well the last one. Pro'ly should finish that first. Hmm, what to do!! Thanks for the shout out on your RAK! :)

I love getting snail mail too. That's a fun package! :) I signed up for the next blog class too but haven't had time to look at the prompts. I need to do that!

Hey, thank YOU! Congrats to your winners, and I'm so pleased you received something yourself - hey, who knows, maybe you'll be receiving another little something very soon...? ;-)

Hi, just popped over from BBFS, I voted :)

Sue, a.k.a. midwestgirl said...

Wow, so many choices on your poll and all good ones! I voted for online classes, because we end up in many of the same ones and I like to hear how someone else is using and enjoying the class. But I really enjoy everything you post!

Hi Melissa. I'm a fellow BB4S student, and that's where I found your blog. I voted in your poll and chose several choices. I most like blogs that are a mixture.
