Giveaway and a little bit more……

Ok….today is the day to pick the giveaway for the handy dandy spray paint nozzle thingy!!!

Whoop whoop!

So, I pulled out the “Random Number Selector of Comments generator”…..

I know….fancy.


Congratulations Stacey!!!!

Why do I always get excited for the winner but want to give something to everyone that entered?

Well, let me tell you why.

I won’t have a ton of giveaways and if I do……it will be on days I post regular stuff.

That was one of my comments about giveaways before….they would rather enjoy the regular posts.

Thank you……

But….. you guys really mean alot to me. I wish I could give each one of you something…….but the majority of my stuff in excess in my house is food…..potatoes anyone? I buy in bulk. Seven child syndrome is what I call it.

But….to try to say thanks…I have to do a few giveaways….just to say “XOXO”….every once in awhile.

You can’t know how much I love every reader and comment and every time I read that, “so and so..came here because a friend shared my blog with them”…..

It is so dang humbling.

This blog is not just a place of creativity for me…..

But a place of  healing.

I – AM – HUMBLED……that you even read it.

And I LOVE to hear you laugh…..

To hear you say….I haven’t had that kind of laugh in a LONG time….

Well, when I read that…. I hope….

Maybe, just maybe….it heals you a bit too.

For real.

So stay around…..please spread the word about the blog…….

And laugh with me.

It is growing…and I am still trying to grasp where it is going….but I promise…I will stay the same.

I would name you by name….everyone of you but am so afraid I would leave someone out….but every comment….reader.

You have healed me….made me laugh….sometimes cry and taken this blog to a different place.

We were here first! You and me!!!!

And I can’t wait to see where this takes us.

Congratulations Stacey!



PS. I am coming up with a way to make the “Because it is true” place it’s own…..all comments were deleted somehow by blogger, which broke my heart………but when it is posted……new post will be placed there periodically. There is more to me than a paintbrush…..and maybe some of that restoration needs to be shared as well. Love, Me again…………

    Congratulations, Stacey.  I guess I’ll get off my butt and go buy my own spray paint nozzle thingy. 

    Thanks for entertaining and teaching us, Rebecca.  You are my only “must stop daily spot” these days.

    Hi Me!
    My family and I have been vacationing and I was without wi-fi most days. Our camera battery died while we were at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. So I thought I would use my cell phone. I took some pictures and then wanted to see how they turned out so I scrolled through the pics and came across a picture of two beautiful ladies. I wasn’t sure who they were until I looked real closely. It was a pic of you and your daughter! I have no idea how that pic got there, maybe something to do with my phone and e-mails. Anyway, I interpreted it as a sign to pray for you and your family. So, know that on Friday morning I was playing with my family and praying for yours! Love ya! Laurie

    I am a little bit lost here(this is not unusual).
    Do you have two blogs?

    @9ce4a9c212f0f036d0f3024632722aa3:disqus  Thank goodness I am NOT the only one that gets lost….the “because it’s true” thingy….is across the top of my blog. I have had some “real life” situations that were inspirational or heartfelt for people and I have given it, it’s own name….”because it’s true”….I’m setting that part of THIS blog up. Hopefully it will make sense soon. Love, Me

    @0225635aba582754256db8d90fd9a26c  That is probably the sweetest comment / creepiest comment ; ) No…I am teasing….I honestly believe we were on your heart for a reason! I believe in the power of prayer…and covet yours. Thanks! Love, Me

    I thought it was a little creepy too at first. But I have been intentionally trying to find the positive in every situation. Prayer is the most positive thing I could think of 🙂
