I hope you won't mind me making an exception today, as it's a willy-nilly-lots-of-tidbits kinda day. :)
First up, I forgot about the October TUSAL yesterday. Eeek! So, here is my ORT jar, a day late, with lots of red rayon from October's Chinese Garden part.
A huge WELCOME to all my new followers, and a similar huge HELLO to all my existing followers and blogging friends. I try to return the favor and stalk your blogs, but sometimes I'm flummoxed as your blogs aren't listed on your profiles. Imagine this scene....
Me.... all excited.... "NEW BLOG TO STALK!! NEW BLOG TO STALK!!"Here's how to make sure your blogs are displayed on your Profile page. :D
Eager little finger goes "CLICK CLICK CLICK"
Anticipation builds, then a furrow on the brow (which incidentally is bad for me as it makes lines on my forehead which then makes me look old!!)... "WHERE'S THE BLOG LINK??!!!"
Looks around all bewildered, and trust me, me bewildered is not a good thing. For some weird reason, inanimate objects choose these exact moments to run into me! ;)
I try to reply to all your comments via email. It always makes my day to read what you have to say and I'm blessed to have gotten to know some of you really well. :D Sometimes, your contact emails aren't listed with blogger and as a result I get a "no-reply" address to blogger.
I'd recommend not using your main email address but instead use another address set aside for your blogging demands and needs. :)
A while ago, I had a poll about changing the look of this blog. The votes were pretty unanimous on the option to keep it the same. There were two votes for change... I wonder who you are. ;)
FINISHES BLOG. (This link is located on the tab bar at the top of this page.) After playing with different options, I decided to go with Blogger's new dynamic view option, but keep my linen background. What I love about it is while I've set the page to a SNAPSHOT default, you as a user can select different viewing options. :) The MOSAIC option is quite cool. :D
Sara challenged me to a Mermaids of the Deep Blue finish this weekend if she finishes her Mystery Project by today. Well, her end is met. She sent me a picture of her Happy Dance and it's STUNNING!!! Since it's a gift for her mom, she won't be posting a pic till after November, but check out her blog anyways. :D My end of the challenge... hrmm... maybe I should take tomorrow off? LOL!!!
My friend, Jen, started blogging again after a long hiatus. I think she got sick of me bugging her about it all the time. ;) Stop over and say hi... she's an amazing stitcher and has the most hilarious dog.
