Dear Vicki
again for hosting
your wonderful

A bringing together of like-minded souls!

Over these two weeks
I’ve met some wonderful women,
heard their stories and
joined their amazing blogs.

In return I’ve received comments
from 119 interesting bloggers
and I’ve gained
71 new followers!!!

I'm so glad I joined your party
A big thankyou to you from me.

Can I just say again how grateful
I am that there are people
like Vicki in this world
so giving of themselves
for others.

Purely by chance another blogger told me
that Vicki works full time as a
registered nurse
as well as running such projects like
“Grow Your Blog Party”.

Plus she knits these
exquisite birds nests
that benefitted a children's hospital!
Read her story here

Anyone taking part in GYB could tell
what a massive job it must have been
co-ordinating those lists of bloggers
for us to contact.
A very professionally run affair
Merci beacoup mon ami!!!

Vicki can I just ask a
‘tongue in cheek’ question please?
Did “the Gardener” get his dinner
during all this preparation?!!!

The winner of my GYB Giveaway
is #58

Kimberly of Kimberly’s Korner

Congratulations Kimberly 
please email me with your
postal address!

Thank you to everyone who took the
time to visit me during the party!
to my new followers!!!

Until next time we meet
Be kind to one another

hugs and love




Congratulation to Kimberly. I am sure you will enjoy reading your new magazine. I also agree Vicki has done a lovely job of organizing this wonderful GYBP. Hugs judy

Shane - You are so sweet -- I do not deserve all that my friend -- but you do make me gush with pride and gratitude for folks who appreciate that it WAS a lot of work to put the GYB event together! You gained 71 followers - that is amazing -- the very essence of what I was hoping for!! Bless your heart -- I love you for doing this!

ps ---
ah-- NO - the poor Gardener did NOT get his dinner while that was going on -- in fact it was as though we were in the same house but he never saw me because I spent hours and hours and hours at the computer!!
