Wouldn’t it be wonderful if each and every day we exchanged peace?

If no one was every lonely,

If growing older others knew how to forgive as well as they forget,

If the feeling of Christmas would last all year long,

I’d have just one wish.


Today I’d like to share some joy that I get from a dear friend in blog land.  Her name is Pam, she blogs “Playing with my Camera” and she always has the most beautiful pictures that brings a smile to my face each time I see them.  This is one of her pictures above and I thought it a perfect fit with my blog post on “A Christmas Wish” 

I’m feeling that blogging is a lot like Christmas and it is a lot of sharing and caring

I would like to share

not cookies, not recipes, or tea cups, just a wish.

 After all we blog with a purpose.  A voice to be heard, sung like a bird.

  Bulbs and blogs are a lot alike, don’t you think?


I got a bulb (blog)



and it started to grow (wrote posts)



I watered that bulb (posted to my blog)



So I could watch it grow (build an audience)



it started to bud (blogging more often)


being kept in the dark (no one finds your posts)



why bother to show (stop blogging)


I want to thank the few people who continue to come and visit me regularly. I read and comment on about 37 other posts per week hoping to increase the traffic to my little bulb (blog).   I have joined in many parties, and feel like someone could greatly host my post.  


I’m usually in the crafting spirit, but these days I’m in the spirit of Christmas.  Or I should say in the spirit of snow as we look around us.  Today I’d like to have you join me over at Sandi’s blog post HOME where we share Home for the Holidays.

Have a very Merry Christmas  and I hope all your Wishes come true.

A Stylish Blog award was given to me from Faith and her blog is “Gold in the Clouds.”
This is exciting and I’m going to play along. As promised I’d be adding a few other bloggers.

Part 2 of 2 Read part 1 of 2
The Rules.

Without delay here are the rules for the Stylish Award.
Here are the Rules
• First, thank and link back to the person who gave you this award
• Second, share 7 things about yourself
• Third, award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
• Then, contact these bloggers and tell them they’ve won this award

My list of seven.
1. I am a coffee drinker and I opened a tea room and I’m working on a gluten free menu.
2. I turned my scrapbooking hobby into a business so I could have an excuse to do it more often.
3. Yesterday was the first time I cried in years, many years!
4. I print and write at the same time and think it is part of my character.
5. I prefer well water to any other and will go out of my way to get it and bring it with me.
6. At age 48 my bucket list is empty. The new one I’m starting only has one thing on it… to lose weight.
7. I enjoy riding in a truck for some reason, and love it when my son-in-law has me in his truck as a tag along, maybe because my dad and brother both had trucks, hum.

Blogs I want to award.
1. Karen over at Fabgrandma
2. Stephanie over at Hookin’, Knittin’ & Livin’
3. BetteJo over at A Bead a Day
4. Dee over at Hot-Flashed Funk
5. Melissa over at empress of dirt
6. Jeanne over at Seven Oaks
7. Laura Lee over at Outnumbered Mom
8. Jerralea over at Jerralea’s Journey

So I bent the rules a little.
The world is made up of so much and these 8 above are a few of the 156 bloggers I read and follow. All the above bring a wonderful mixer to the blog world and so I award them the Stylish Award. If you didn’t make it to the list and want to be added, let me know. Now, I should go tell them the above 8.
Thank you for playing along, xo~cindy
