"Count Your Blessings" Giveaway!

It's "count your blessings" time again! I would like to thank YOU my visitors for stopping by my blog and for your continued words of encouragement. Thank you! To celebrate my 20,000 plus hits on my blog I am giving away this chipboard book I made especially for the occasion. Each page of the book is a different letter and it spells out the word "Love." The book is filled with all the embellishments you see. Plus there are some additional handmade embellishments I had fun designing that will also be included. The chipboard book is all ready for you to fill with your favorite photos and journaling. Leave a comment, share a life blessing and your name will be added to the giveaway drawing. I will draw a name the middle part of the month of February and mail the chipboard book & embellishments to the winner! I find that even during challenging times there is always something to be thankful for if I just take the time to think about and count my blessings. We have such an awesome heavenly Father that wants to meet every desire of our heart, how can we not stay thankful, huh? Lately I've be blessed reading these articles on Serving the Lord...especially the one on the power of prayer and the poem at the end of the article. Take a look...I'm sure it will bless you too. Chipboard Book with all embellishments: Plus more handmade embellishments: FYI, since this is the latter part of January, I will probably re-post this giveaway in February since the drawing will be that month. May God bless YOU with a most excellent day!!

WoW! Congrats on your hits! This is just beautiful. I would love to be the lucky stamper to have this amazing book. Thanks so much for a chance.

Hi. Thanks for sharing your time with us on your blog. I enjoy viewing your creations. I have had a healing touch from Jesus in my back. I slipped in the snow the beginning of this month and injured my lower back. I have suffered everyday until today. I woke up pain free. I sang praise to God for loving me and taking care of me.

Your love album is BEAUTIFUL, Mary! TFS your gorgeous work and creative ideas. You are really generous in creating and sharing your tutorials.

My favorite blessing is my family. God has blessed us (my loving husband, twin sons and myself) from the beginning with kind and caring hearts, patience, and good communication with each other. God has watched over us every day to help guide us through the good and the bad, and we are SO grateful!

Hugs,

Love this book!
God has shown me since Dec. just how faithful he is, I was laid off however He has provided for us everyday and I know know he will continue to do so. I know God will show me the job I am suppose to have and I am so blessed by the wonderful family, church family, and friends he has given me.

Thank you for doing this and may God continue blessing you and your family.

This is an adorable book!

We are praising God for Dean's job. He's survived all the layoffs thus far and even a positive drug test! God turned that situation around in amazing ways with Dean's coworkers.

May God continue to bless you and the other commentators here!

Hi Mary,

I absolutely love your book, and anyone who receives it will be blessed. God has blessed me, recently, through some books I've read and studied by Catherine Martin. Check them out at quiettime.org when you have time.

i am lucky to be blessed with good health...it has become more aware to me how important this is, more important with any material thing.

Jingle said...

We just had a recent blessing. A small bump on my husbands hand had us worried. We couldn't do the whole dr. thing right now due to finances, so we prayed and hoped for the best! Well, it seems to be almost gone now and the pain has gone with it!

I have many life blessings. My eternal life blessing is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My earthly blessings are my husband, my children, and the rest of my family.
That is a beautiful book, thank you!

So very beautiful! I am blessed with my job. I work from home so I help my family with our budget but I'm here for my kids in the summer and when they are sick and I am able to be more a part of their day.

Dandelion Momma said...

I feel very blessed right now. We recently moved into our first house (a blessing in itself) and I have found a wonderful new friend in one of my new neighbors. I feel like I've known her my whole life and she has been a true blessing in my life. Your love book looks great. I would add pictures of my hubby!

Stacie said...

My children are definitely my blessings.

Patti J said...

What an uplifting blog! I think that in finding it, I added another blessing to my never ending list!

Your book is beautiful, and whoever receives it will be blessed each time they open it.

Have a great weekend!

I'm blessed to have two healthy beautiful kids. We also found out in December that my sister's cancer is in remission. That's been a huge blessing for our family.

Pick me! Pick me! Thanks for the chance to win.

A special blessing I've come to realize in the past year is my ability and desire to papercraft. Through papercrafting I've been able to refocus my life to the more meaningful aspects as well as touch others.
