My 1st blog give-away of 2009!

I've had a successful month of blogging in 2009; 40 posts! I even surprised myself. Secretly I planned to give a prize to the one who commented the most, (meaning that you are really taking the time to read what I write). I counted up the times you've commented, and I picked out a prize for the winner of the person who commented the most on my blog in January.

The winner is....Betty at DayDreamnWorld! Betty commented a total of 27 times! She is a fantastic doll collecting friend, whom I met years ago in a Chatty Cathy doll group. Congratulations, Betty! Would you like me to post a picture of your prize here, or would you like it to be a surprize? It's something for your dolly.

I'm addicted to blogging now. It's an online journal of my life in 2009, and I love journaling. I have a new plan for February. I have a theme for each day of the week, and I will be posting bits and pieces from past journals. I began journaling at the tender age of 10 years. I tried to write each day, just a few lines, and it's intriguing to see what interested me as a child.

Here is an outline of my new theme for February:

Memory Monday (I'll show a picture or two from my past)

Tasty Tuesday (I'll post a favourite family recipe)

Writing Wednesday (I'll talk about my current writing project)

Thrifty Thursday (I'm trying to "shop" in my home, using what I've got stashed in drawers; I'll post a picture of a current scrapbooking/sewing project)

Fun Friday (I'll post about something in my various collections; dolls, linen, children's books, china, miniatures)

Shopping Saturday or Pink Saturday (I'll vary this every other week, as I can't keep up with Pink Saturday each week!)

Simple Sunday (I'll post about whatever strikes my fancy)

OH BOY!! Thank you Loretta. I'll leave it up to you...I'll be surprised either way. :)

It's 70 here today. I don't know what that is in Celsius but it's a far cry from snow. I know you probably get tired of hearing me say that I'd love to see snow. It did snow here once this winter but it was at night and by morning it was all gone. I should have gone out and taken a picture.

Your weekly plan sounds ambitious! Have fun with it, I will stop by now and then to see what you have come up with. Congrats to Betty!

Hi Loretta, Love your plan for theme days. Your blog is looking better and better. I especially look forward to those pictures from your past.
