Meeting a blog friend...

Via phone! AND she is an Oregonian to boot. I got to talk to Rachel of http://eoberrys.blogspot.com/ . I had mentioned to her that I did not like the black background (hard to read) and the fact that my pictures were cut off. Well she takes it upon herself to call me and we ended up chatting over an hour...laughing like we were old friends. In the process she made up a new improved blog look that I absolutely adore. It is more me. I am constantly amazed by this growing group of women from all over...sharing and caring about one another. I don't care if that sounds corny...I think it is pretty cool. So thanks Rachel, you rock! I know many of you know her by now but if you don't you need to pay her a visit...she is one crafty gal! I will be popping in later today to announce the winner of the pumpkin man and raven! Cherry

Hi Miz Cherry's jubilee! You're invited to "My Favorite Things Monday" inspired by the Sound of Music! You sharing a picture and story of your current 'favorite thing' that cheered you up when life got you down, would be a blessing! I hope you can come! www.sarahlcc.blogspot.com

I really like the new look. The old look was very nifty, but there were parts of it that were a bit hard on the eyes. This one makes me say "ahhh." Thank you for sharing!

Well, now you're just rubbing it in! Two of my favorite bloggers not only live thousands of miles from me, but they live close to each other! It's torture! The blog looks fantastic!
