Sharing the Love - A Button Giveaway!

~A Day to Feel and Share the Love~

Ever have one of those days, that is perfect in every way? It's so perfect, in fact, that you remember it for as long as possible, and every time you think of it, you can't help but smile like a wee little kid in a candy wonderland...? 

I had that day. Today. :) 

If you asked me to explain just what made it so wonderful...I don't think I could tell you. Maybe it was the sun this morning, or waking up to chirping birds...Or the wonderful phone conversation with a dear friend...Maybe it was the lovely service I received - perhaps one of the best I've ever had from a call center - while trying to resolve an issue with our espresso machine...Or maybe, the warm feeling that I got as I read a few of the loveliest and most kind-hearted comments from my dear readers.

Thank you, (Fi, Fran, Cayla, Evgenia, Asia, Zokie, Ros, Jinny, Tanya, DonnaGrace, Becky, Romy, RebekahLisa) and EVERYONE who takes time to leave a warm thought about my posts, and thank you, Karen for your continued sweet words - your kindness always brings a smile to face! Melissa, reading your comment gave me a feeling which I can only describe with a huge, childish :) ! It's not that often that someone you idolize, takes time to visit your tiny little blog and leave such kind words of support and love. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. 

You see, I don't often read my own blog comments as I publish them...I let a few pile up, and then I sit down when I have time to fully read each kind word, to process and feel all the love that you all so kindly leave for me each day. 

It is my way of taking time to appreciate each and every one who takes the time to visit my little blog and leave such heartwarming comments.  Today, all of your love has inspired my soul and warmed my heart.

Comments are not the only thing I am grateful for - I am absolutely thrilled by the fact that there are a growing number of people interested in this blog. I find it terribly exciting to have visitors from all over the world. 
Thank you for visiting and commenting, whoever you may be, wherever you may be. 

It is appreciated. A LOT!

Just as a wee little thanks, I am giving away a little prize pack, to one randomly drawn person who comments on this post, or has commented on any of my posts this past month.




For the lucky winner - a mixed collection of my handmade buttons. They remind me of scumptious candy, so I am sending an assorted pack, decorated up prettily to one of you! With maybe another little surprise thrown in!

I will leave the draw open until the end of this month, and announce the lucky winner May 1st ish...
Just leave a comment on this post, or any other post this month, up to April 30th.

No need to follow my blog - I'd much rather everyone follow what they are interested in :)
But if you choose to, your support really means the world!

Thank you all so very much.

Hi, Ivana - how surprised (and humbled) I was to find my name with a link back to my blog on your dear post! Thank you so much for taking the time to do that. I enjoyed visiting each of the blogs you featured. Secondly, I am in awe that these beyond-beautiful buttons are your personal creations! Gorgeous AND delightful! Ivana, I really need to thank you for mentioning something at the bottom of this post. It is regarding "No need to follow my blog". That is how I do my blog candy, too. It is treat enough to know that people occasionally take the time to drop by. While others have encouraged me to do otherwise, I'm grateful to see another soul with the same thought - just to have fun, be grateful to those who can come by, and not demand they become a follower. Especially when so many follow via different means and simply don't have time to always leave a comment. The sweetness of your writing, and your style-techniques, just reveals so much of your warmheartedness. Thanks again, hugs, de
