Day 2 of the 21 Challenge


I LOVE this challenge.  Thanks so much Rhonna for your inspiration, motivation and commitment.  Commitment is a really strong word and sometimes a very feared word.  I feel if I make a commitment I don't want to let any one down or more important let myself down. Usually if I make a commitment it IS something that I want to do, but I am so afraid life will get in the way.  Something may happen I have no control of may happen and get in the way.  But, a challenge like this shows how important it is to make commitments and reap the rewards.  Most of all the feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction of committing to something and following through.  Postive thoughts and actions carry you through!  Thanks Rhonna for sharing your talent with us!!!!!
Another blogger I have to thank for a huge commitment on her part is Sandy from Sew Revived.  She was a hostess for this charm bracelet swap.  She sewed the beautiful holder.  She typed (I don't know how she did this) on fabric and sewed into the pouch when it was all finished.  Each participant also included a postcard from where they were from.  Zandra added a merbear to her postcard in the lower right side.  The participants I knew already were Jodie (made the paris charm)and Pam (made the collaged scrabble letter g).  I loved this swap.  Sandy thank you for your wonderful idea,  sewing talent and putting together a great group of women from all over the country.

I have come to have a look at your beautiful blog! Thank you for coming by my place and joining in!
We have some strong similarities. My two youngest left for University this fall as well. So, my nest is missing my chick!
