Oh, Happy Day! I Won Another Giveaway!!!

Giveaways are fun! I enter a lot of giveaways and I mean A LOT!!! No, I do not always win them. I do not win giveaways MORE than I win them! This last one had a little bit of a twist. The generous giveaway-ER decided to give the prize away to each person who commented! In that way I am very lucky, because I just so happened to be one of the 5 people who happened to comment on Fairiebees' blog the day she happened to post a giveaway.

~*~

Wanna see what I won???
It was this pretty little tatted confection, here!
This isn't just any snowflake giveaway.
The winners get a new snowflake EACH month!
So by next Christmas I will have a
DOZEN tatted snowflakes!!!
She is a very crafty blogger with a green thumb.
I hope you find the time to visit her someday soon!
She says that her first snowflakes are on their way
to the winners right now!
Yippeeeeee!!!!
I'm so excited.
I may have to start myself a little
Go see!
But before you do,
I've one more thing to share with you.


~*~


To make the day even sweeter
I received an award from this sweet blogger,
LaurieAnna
from

It's the PINK version of the
Kreativ Blogger Award!
Yippeeeee! Yippers!
Wow, I've got one in every color now
and I didn't even have to spend any money, LOL!
I haven't been shopping in a while,
so that sort of thing is pretty exciting
to me right now, LOL!
To quote LaurieAnna...
"So, here's what I'm supposed to do.
Tell you 6 things that make me happy…
and nominate 6 other blogs. So, here goes...."
***
6 Things That Make Me Happy
***
1) My relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ.
He really is my best friend and I'm grateful for that.
2) TATTING!
Of course!
3) Doing something fun with a friend.
4) Doing something for someone else
that TRULY helps them.
5) Winning blog giveaways!
LOL!
6) Blogging
~and meeting fabulous blogging buddies,
like YOU!
***
Now for the winners...

2) Tattycat from
Laura's Tatting Muse
3) Nita from
4) Kathy from
5) Gina from
6) Carol from
Congrats winners!
These are in no particular order.
Just wanted to share with a few members
of my online tatting community!
Wanted to give love and encouragement
to just a few tatters who have
encouraged me.
:)

Thank you for stopping by to see my giveaway giftee and new award. I'd love to hear from you! I read each and every comment and they mean a lot! I cannot tell you how much blogging has blessed my life! When I started this blog last March I thought I would be lucky to have 10 people look at my blog...and yes, I still think that's lucky, but I have been MORE than lucky! I have been blessed with meeting so many fabulous bloggers who have brightened my days! 2008 has been a year of struggle and trial for me and I won't go into details about it, but I do want to thank you for being my "friends" during a very difficult year!
BIG (((HUGS))) to all of you!!!
Sincerely,
~TattingChic
