~~~This is staying on top until May 22nd. To see my newest post, please scroll down~~~

Welcome to my new blog!!! YEAH!
I am soooooo very excited to open my new blog to the public. Two weeks ago I had no idea that I would be changing my blog host, but here I am. Why the change? The wonderfully talented Michelle Laylock was designing a blog for me. The only problem was that the layout I wanted could not be added to Typepad. Sooo I decided to switch because I really wanted the layout and to my husbands delight, saving money at the same time since blogger is free.

I am also thrilled that the "Friend Me" button is now so much simpler for everyone as well as much more recognisable. If you became a follower on my Typepad blog, please just click the button on the RIGHT at the very top. On the next page hit confirm. That is it. SIMPLE!!! Not only that, when you do, I will add your name again to the drawing for the blog candy. WhooooHoooo!!!!! I really hope this is not to inconvenient for you. I love sharing with you all and hope you will continue to follow me.
I am adding some candy as a thank you to my first few followers. As soon as I have 10 followers, I am going to add more to the booty! Then every 5 there after, which means there is a potential for a very large prize. If there are enough followers, I will add a second candy! To celebrate, I added extra blog candy. Some for the 10+ followers and some to celebrate my new blog!!!! YES...Lot's of explanation points, that is how excited I am, LOL

The way to enter the blog candy is the same. Here they are for those who have just happened by today: What you need to do.
1. Become a follower
2. Post my candy on your blog with a link back to this post 3.
 Leave me a comment with a link to your blog
4. Tell your friends. If you refer a friend to my blog, make sure they leave a comment telling me who referred them and you both will get an additional entry for the candy. That is it!!!

ADD-ONS
10 Follower Add-on (from blogger) Sampling of Paper Temptress Paper

New Blog Add-on

Add for the 15 follower mark

Added for 20 followers
Added for 25 followers

30+ follower add-on


The winner will be drawn by Random.org on May 22nd. That gives you a whole month to tell all your friends and receive extra entries.

The fine print: To be fair to everyone, I am asking that only those who are planning on remaining a follower become one. My hope is that you all will like my blog enough to follow. If not, though, please let those who do get a fair chance at winning the candy.
