Its a new DAY ~~~ also my 100th post

Today is a historic day in this country. I love the feeling of hope in the air. President Obama has said we will all have to do our part. There is a huge grass roots movement towards service. This is so incredibly awesome. Can you imagine what can be done in this country if we the people jumped in and helped. I am seeing my friends already jumping in. Some were cleaning up trash on a neighborhood street. I have a friend who volunteers at hospitals and nursing homes with her therapy dogs every single week. If there could just be a shift in thought, and we can think about how we can help? Thats what I intend on doing. :) Dont underestimate the power of "paying it forward". Its a universal law, and I have seen what amazing things happen when you adopt this philosophy in life.

AND today is my 100th blog post. This is so much fun, so to celebrate I wanted to have a contest. Just leave me a message here by 5pm pacific time Sunday, January 25th and I will anounce the winner on Show and Tell Monday. The prize will be my brand new design,,, this pink cupcake throw pillow. I will be adding another catagory to my website called "Sweet Dreams Bakery" I have a line of sweet treat throw pillows with lots of trims and fun colors. It literally was an idea that popped in my head while walking through Joanns and its just taken hold. I am really excited about it. I will of course still be doing my jewelry and other designs. Its just a little extra:) Have a wonderful day and celebrate!!!! hugs, gail

Gail...you are so right about the opportunity our wonderful country is being given. If everyone would "pay it forward" can you just imagine how great that would be!

I am all over your blog giveaway...I fell in love with that cupcake pillow the first time you showed us on the forum....it is just scrump-dilly-icious! And your new blog theme matches it perfectly. :)

Pink cupcake hugs to you my friend!
