    Oh, neat! I loooove office supplies! I think I may have mentioned in one of my posts that one of our Sunday traditions is wandering around Staples. Yes, we have issues, but it's nothing that can't be fixed with lots of Post-It notes!! =)

  34. Staci Says:

    I also think your blog is attractive. You have inspired me to work on mine better. I just blogged about my goals for the week. Good luck with your kitchen.
    I have followed flylady for a year now, and her first advice is a shiny sink before bed, and how it can transform your house. I for one have found it to be quite true.

  35. Ruby Says:

    Loving your blog - I'm here for the party!
    Hope to get back and read lots at a later stage.

  36. I'm so glad you're encouraging women to be wise women and build up their homes! THank you for sharing that message. :) Just stopping in from the UBP to visit other Christian moms and homeschool Moms.

    I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
    I own a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.
    From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use.
    I have been so touched by the comments that I have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size.

    I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others. I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
