Happy Monday!

Happy Monday Dear Blogging Friends! I was a little dissapointed in the PIF that went around a few weeks ago.Mind you I was not quick enough to be on all of them.But I was quick enough for two in particular and they just skipped over or picked the people they wanted to send something too.Not my idea of what it was ment to be.I have been doing Random Acts of Kindness and will continue to do it.You can go here http://bumblebeelanecottage.blogspot.com/2011/02/because-kindness-matters.html to see my post and if it moves you sign up.. So anyway the real reason for this post is a surprise for one of my dear followers.Yes a little giveaway but Shhhh... don't want you to spread the word on this one.I want it to go to one of my wonderful friends who take the time to visit me.The giveaway will be a surprise till saturday april 9th when I choose the winner..Easy entry on this one just comment that you visited and want to enter and be a follower in the US or Canada..Yes you can sign up as a new follower and enter as well like I said it's for anyone who visits.If you do not have a blog please leave a email address.Winner will need to contact me with 48 hours with shipping info or another name will be drawn.Thanks to all the wonderful people who take time to visit and all the wonderful people who have become dear friends.Warm Blessings!~Amy

I love surprises, please sign me up. I have met the kindness people through blogging, everyone seems to be so supportive of each other, we all need that in dealing with pressures each day. You are very kind to reach out to others. Vicky

What a great idea! will head over to the post.
Thanks Amy!

Tam said...

Beautiful idea, your blog is wonderful,the PIF was a little confusing some thought you were suppose to send 5 and recieve one the directions got revised after the confusion. I send out my 3 (thats all that commented) and I recieved 2 it was more like a swap I think.

rachel said...

Such a sweet idea - please sign me up for your giveaway. Sorry your PIF was disappointing :(

Sheila said...

Hello Amy~I'm a relatively new follower and I've so enjoyed your blog. I signed up to join the PIF and have been blessed to receive a few wonderful surprises, though I was hoping someone would sign up on my blog so I could PIF to others. Anyway, only two gals did and that is fine. I, like yourself love to give and do RAK's and will continue to regardless. Your surprise giveaway sounds like a wonderful idea, I hope it goes well for you.
Blessings to you~

It was a messed up deal. Sorry it was so confusing to everyone. I had no one sign up so I did just send out gifts randomly. And I love that feeling. I really like the swap idea.
I got your package today and it was everything I had envisioned. I do love surprises. I am an avid follower.
How did the craft show/flea market go?

Hi Amy, I am sorry PIF was so dissapointing and became so messed up. I took part, only had one sign up on my blog, but I was thinking for me that maybe it was because I am a new kid on the block,only been blogging sice Nov.??

Please enter me into you giveaway, I love surprises...

Hi Amy...what a sweet idea for a giveaway. Please enter me for sure. I really wanted to do the PIF, but since I am still new it was a little overwhelming. But, now that my first swap is behind me I am ready to go....and speaking of swaps...I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my bird plaque you sent me and those candle tarts smelled so good I could smell them before I even opened the mail box...I big THANK YOU for swapping with me and being so kind and helping out a newbie blogger.

Many hugs,

Good morning Amy,
I didn't do the PIF? because I was also confused and didn't understand the details.
I love to visit your blog, I try to comment for most everyone, not always easy at times, but I appreciate those that visit.
I have met so many wonderful ladies here, I am thankful!
I would like to be considered for the giveaway, although I am a follower no matter what you are doing!
Have a good week.

At Home With Amy said...

Hey Amy, I would love to be entered in your Giveaway. You design the nicest things for your friends and followers.
Have a blessed day!
Hugs ~amy~

I agree, PIF did get confusing, just like any chain idea, things get misread but overall the thought behind it was good. I had 3 sign up and that was special to put a smile on their face with my hand made gifts.
A sweet generous give away, truly from the heart, how special is that....
Enter me to win, I am a follower and enjoy spending time with you on your blog.
