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)
