A Thank You Gift to my Sweet Readers

WINNER!  Congratulations Charlotte.  I hope your grandaughter enjoys the gift.  Thanks for being such a sweet reader.

I can't believe this blog has been going for just a little over a year!  Thank you to all my wonderful readers for sticking with me, leaving such sweet comments, and encouraging me to keep on.

In thinking about how thankful I am for all of you, I decided it was time to do my first giveaway!  

So, here it is:  I am giving away the jean messenger bag to one of my readers.  

What do you have to do to win?  Just leave a comment either on this blog post or on my facebook page about who you would give this bag to, and why they are special to you.  

The giveaway winner will be announced on Friday, Sept. 28th.  Good luck!  Thank you again for being such an encouragement to me!!!


  1. Congratulations! This is a cute bag and I think my grand daughter would love it.

    1. Congratulations!!! Your name was the one picked out of the hat! If you go to my contact button, it will link to my email, and you can send me the mailing address you would like to have the messenger bag sent to.

      Thanks again for being a sweet reader!


  2. This bag is adorable. My niece would love it...and I'd borrow it, too :D

  3. I would give it to my sweet grand daughter who travels a lot and tries to carry as much as she can on every trip.

  4. I so appreciate you taking the time to share all of your ideas with us! I love this bag. I have a crate FULL of old jeans just waiting to be used for crafty ideas like yours. Hope to make a quilt/picnic blanket for each of my children out of them. If I were to win the bag, I would give it to my daughter Mindy. She loves purses and reading. Everywhere she goes, she takes her book(s) with her. Even if it's just to shop...never know when she might have a free minute to read. She is special to me because she is my youngest daughter (she's 20) and Mindy has endured a lot in her short life and keeps on keeping on. She's a blessing and an example of God's grace!

  5. I am new to your blog. Made your peach crisp and loved it. I would give this bag to my girls for carring their music to piano lessons. They are usually stuffing it into a grocery sack or oversized beach bag.


  6. Melissa,
    Even though I don't always comment, I read your posts quite often! :-) You are an encouragement to me, and I am so thankful for how God continues to use you guys!
    This bag would go to one of my dear friends from church. She is a blessing in my life in so many ways, and her encouragement to me means so much!
    PS: My ice cream is on the counter softening even as I type; getting ready to make that ice cream cake!

  7. I would give it to my daughter

  8. i would give it to my nephew who has A.D.D. and has to keep repeating the 4th grade b/c he can't get tested very sad i think this would be big enough and he would't loose his homework or books on the way home from school thanks and u tooo r a great inspiration for us.....remember that!!!!! susan

  9. You are such a talented lady and I'm so thankful you share your talents with others!!
    I would like to give this bag to my mother. She has had a summer of testing: Knee replacement, infection, shredded tendons in her foot, basal skin cancer on her face. I think she would love it to hang on her walker(she now has braces on both feet due to shredded tendons) to securely carry items with her. Right now she sets them on the seat of her walker and sometimes things slide off and she's tries to retrieve them without falling herself!! She always, as far back as I can remember, always helped & put others first - just love giving back to her now!'

  10. I would give this to my best friend! She is special to me because she is always there for me and will do anything for me just like I would do for her!
