LMAO, I'm a winner!

Hey All You Beautiful People!
Thank you all so very, very much for all the kind and thoughtful comments you left on my last post about the embroidery of the Wynken, Blynken & Nod. You guys make me feel like I could fly, seriously. You're the best!

I wanted to reply to each and everyone of you, but I kept running into snags, many of you are "No Reply" bloggers. Have you heard of that before? When your comments come to me through my email address, I can easily respond and keep the conversation going, which is great - especially since you know me - I'm a chatty girl! Many times however, when I hit "reply" up in the address bar where your email address would normally appear, it simply says "No Reply" (insert sad face here)...  so I can't write back to you. Don't know if you're a "No Reply" blogger? I didn't know myself until I followed the steps I'm about to share with you. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I'm sharing a link to Karen's blog, Sew Many Ways. Click here to see if you're a no reply blogger, and if so, she'll tell ya how to change that if you're so inclined.

So hey! How've you been?!? Are you having a nice summer? It's been a while since I posted, and I guess that means I've been having a pretty nice summer too. I've been spending lots of time at the river with the dogs, goofing off and splashing around, and I have several cool embroidery and crafty projects in the works that I'll be able to share soon. I feel like I have so much to tell you guys! I guess I better blog more often so I don't overload you :o)

Today I want to do a little bit of braggin'! I won a little something recently from a rad, rad, rad lady! Even though I haven't met her in person, I'd consider her a friend, let me introduce you to Bex! Bex actually won a giveaway here on my blog a little while back, so you may remember her from then, but if not, go check out all the cool stuff she makes. She has an Etsy shop too, looky-looky!

Want to see what I won, hmm?

A very clever bookmark!
Watch out, you could literally LMAO too! Actually, maybe that's not such a bad idea... I've got some extra back there, maybe I need to laugh more and some of it will fall off? One can only hope! 

Oh, this "cracks" me up, harr-harr!

Thanks Bex, I love it! I'm actually using it in the book you recently recommended, The Historian. I'm only a few pages in, so far but I have a feeling this is going to be a very, very good book.

Well, ok folksies! I'm gonna let cha go, but I'll be back soon! I promise, no more 4 weeks between posts. That's far too long to be away from all you lovely people.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
