BLOG Candy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Candy is Now closed thank you all of the 272 of you who entered, I will be back later today to announce the winner!!
Thank you so much for all of the kind words and encouragment, I enjoyed reading every comment!
I have decided to do some blog candy. I do not normally share a lot of personal things here on my blog, but I'm am just so excited I HAVE to share. So today you are all going to be "let in" on a VERY personal aspect of my life! About 4 months ago I decided to go back to school, I never did graduate high school, I started having babies way too young. I have been a stay at home mom since I had my son 11 years ago and I've always said I will go back. So 12 years and 3 kids later I FINALLY did it I took my GED test on Dec. 16 and 17, I got the final results today and I PASSED! This is such a HUGE accomplishment for me and it's only the begining of my new adventure.


So I'd like to offer some Blog Candy, some Valentines goodies. I will draw a winner on Feb. 1st so the winner can have these in time to make some Valentines stuff.


I will ship worldwide!


To Enter all you need to do is Post my candy on your blog and become a follower. I love to read comments but one is not necessary to be entered. Put your name on the Mr. Linky if I can get it to work. :P

Leanne said...

I am so proud for you I know that has to be an awesome feeling. I so enjoy checking your blog out daily. I am new to the crafting world and I am so jealous of your talents. I got started doing scrapbooking When my son passed away 2 years ago. He was my only child and my whole world came crashing down. My Aunt called me one day and invited me to a crop. I had no clue what was in store for me. I never dreamed that this would lead to a world of so many wonderful people. I have met so many people that have helped me through this journey of grief. And have been so open with theirs ideas and talents. I know making any step forward in life is a huge accomplishment and I am so excited for you. May your day be filled with blessing.

There are a few accomplishments that can change ones course of ones life: getting married, having children, graduating high school are among them. These are things that another person can never take from you. The love of another, loving and caring for a child, self esteem, and an education.

Congratulations to you! You have much to be proud of!
