Hello, Friends.....

Hooray!!!!  I have so many new followers that I am devoting a post just to introducing them!!!   I would love to introduce you, too, so be sure to leave a comment and let me know you are a new follower because my grandma-brain Google misses things sometimes.  ;)

So hang on to your hats.....here we go..................
 
Donna K from @ Studio 307 and is on the design team for several challenge sites.  I see Donna mostly on Fridays at Unity's Friends with Flair linky parties where she links up her fabulous cards.  Donna's cards range from whimsical (with vicious fishes! Ha. Yes, I know there's just one fish, but vicious fishes is so much more fun to say than just vicious fish!!) to inspirational to drop-your-teeth gorgeous....like the one that is on top today for FWF.  Thanks so much, Donna, for becoming a follower.  I appreciate your support and encouragement!!  This ginormous smile is all for you!!!

:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Dorothy Burt of the Buzzy Bee Cottage has just recently started blogging again.....although she started her blog several years ago.  You will be able to understand why she's been a bit busy with other things when you read her profile.....mom of 5, grammy of 8, homeschooler (Yay!!...we homeschooled, too!!), etc.  Dorothy is looking forward to being a more active blogger and I am sure she would appreciate some new followers.  Thank you so much, Dorothy, for becoming a follower here.  This ginormous smile is what breaks out all over my face when I see a new little profile pic up on the sidebar!!! 

:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Lorraine is from Paper Venissage.  (I had to look up what "vernissage" meant--a private showing of art work before an exhibition opens.....turns out she had the definition on her sidebar already!) Lorraine is endlessly creative and has such a variety of projects on her blog.  I greatly admire her ability to use Washi tape in a gorgeous way.  (So far the only thing I can think of doing with washi is plaster it all over envelopes!)  Just for fun she also made an intriguing 3-D paper shape. (Icosohedron???!!  I had to look that one up, too--a polyhedron with 20 faces.  Who says papercrafting blogging isn't educational????  Ha.)  I am still trying to figure out what HWNSNBP means....lol...  Lorraine, I appreciate you becoming a follower here.  This ginormous smile is all yours!!!

:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Rebecca Yahrling or Becca, as I think she likes to be called, is a brand-new follower, too.  I don't know if she has a blog or not.  I didn't see one listed.....but Becca if you have a blog I didn't find, please leave me a link (or tell me more about yourself so we can get acquainted a little bit) and I will introduce you more betterly.  :)  Thanks soooo very much for becoming a new follower.  I appreciate it more than I can say.  This is the ginormous smile that lit up my face when I saw you joined up here.

:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))

And I have some new followers by email, too!!!  Email followers are very near and dear to my heart.   When I first started out visiting blogs and such, I didn't understand what the Google Friend Connect follower sidebar thingy even was or meant.....still not completely sure I understand!!!  Ha.  When I followed a blog, it was by email subscription.  A lot of bloggers didn't have the follow by email button, and so I couldn't (or didn't know how to) follow.  But I found that I LOVED getting posts delivered to my email so I wouldn't miss a thing.  I have to say that I have pared down some of my email subscriptions, but still receive dozens and dozens each day into my inbox.  I consider it a very high privilege for someone to choose to have my posts delivered to their inbox, too.  So I want especially to mention and to thank my newest email subscribers. 

Iris has not posted on her The Iris Blog for awhile, but you can see she has a delightful sense of humor from some of her sweet and punny cards. Be sure to check out her sidebar where she lists current blog candy she runs across.  Yum!!  Iris, I appreciate so much you following me by email.  This ginormous new-follower smile is especially for you!

:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Ruth is from Handmade Cards by Ruth, I believe.  She makes very lovely cards and projects......and has sold them from her Facebook site in the past....but doesn't seem to be doing that currently.  I didn't see a blog mentioned.....but if you also have a blog, please let me know where to find it!  I would love to introduce you better.  Thanks so much for becoming a follower by email!!!  Here's your ginormous smile!!!

:)))))))))))))))))))))))))))

Thank you so much........each of you......for visiting my blog.  Whether or not you are a follower, you are appreciated!!!  Your comments and visits mean the world to me!!!

Have a lovely weekend!!!  And be sure to enter my giveaways, if you haven't yet!!

Well, thank you Janis for the shout out! I was pleased to find your blog and become a follower and I thank you for following me. HWNSNBP stands for He Whose Name Shall Not Be Published or in plainer terms - my husband who goes by many variations of his given name but is least known by what I call him having known him since our high school days. It's not that I call him anything cutesy, but he answers to a different name in his professional world and since he has shared my blog address with co-workers has asked that I not use the name I call him so I gave him his title. Hope I explained that okay. Looking forward to visiting you again.
