I had a couple of family members that would blog about their families so they could share with friends and family that lived away. Great idea, but all my family and friends live in the same town I live in.
Then I had a close sister-in-law announce that they were moving several states away and my parents accepted a church mission call to Argentina. YAY! Now I had a reason to begin a blog! (Yes, of course I would rather them stay in town!)
So my little family blog began. Pretty soon I was posting more about my passions (quilting, diet coke, etc.) and great online finds than about my family so I though I would get my own place and keep my family blog just for family info.
Thus Mel's Own Place came to be.
WOW! Who knew that in just ONE YEAR I would find such great friends from all over the world, inspiration everywhere, and creative sharing from all over! Many swaps, giveaways, wins, challenges, quilt-alongs, tutorials, and photo groups later I'm still surprised as ever at the generosity and friendship my little computer has found for me!
I'm not sure what the next couple of days will bring as far as what's to be given and such, but there will be several posts, each of which will have an item(s) you can win. I have at least 8 sets of gifties, so there will be at least 8 posts between now and Saturday at 10:00pm (US Mountain Standard Time)
I love to share great things I find while wandering around this great Land of Blog so there will be links to you to check out too! Hey, if you have a link you'd like mentioned during my little party, email it to me!
