Things Are A Changin' (and Blog Candy Awarded)

Did you notice? 

You, dear bloggers, were given a reprieve from visiting for a while. Big changes occurred since I last wrote.

Mind if I share? Of course you do. (smile)

But you'll indulge because, after all...
      you are you.

First of all,

an offer to resume the Sparkle N Sprinkle Design Team Captainship was extended by my sweet friend Margaret, who is the owner. The current DTC, Miss Brenda, will be spending more time traveling and being with family.

        that being said, 
                     I've switched hats a bit. 

SNS has a design team call through August 22 for scrapbookers and cardmakers (desperate for scrapbookers!)  If you'd care to take a peek at the Call, just click here (or e-mail me for a PDF).

At the Sparkle Team, we have lots of fun because... 
        well, because... 
                let's face it... 
                        We're all glittery and sparkly. 

And now on to the July Blog Candy.

The Christmas stamps and goodies in the U.S. go to Danielle Vincent of D's Crafty Connection. I've contacted Danielle to let her know. (hope you have fun with these Christmas goodies since the winter holidays are right around the corner!)

The acrylic My Mind's Eye Christmas set with snowflakes, snowman, trees, flourish, to-from for tags, and pretty sentiments goes to Karen Petitt in Northamptonshire U.K. I left a message on her Google Plus Account (hope you saw it, Karen!) (enjoy for Christmas cards this year!)

An August blog candy will be posted soon with my next card.

Almost the end...

In the meantime, (that's the same thing as "back on the ranch...")

         Each one of you contributes beautifully to my life.

                         Thank you for bringing such joy to me with your messages and encouragement.

Many of the visitors to this little blog read one another's Comments. Apparently you all enjoy and encourage each other as well.    It's wonderful being part of the on-line Community, isn't it?


One Last Thing to those who have asked - I'm still using a walker, but have improved substantially. Thank you for your healing thoughts and prayers.

Always warm sparkly hugs from Florida,

You'll make a great team leader! I think it would be wonderful to be on your team, and I even went and read the DT requirements. Still dragging my feet about getting on a team, though. I need something easy peasy and not too time consuming. Congrats to your winners! I'm happy for any small improvement in your health and hope you'll soon be fully recovered.
