kntkly said... 41 I'm new to the 'blog world'... Didn't even know what a blog was till about a month ago... I have two followers (one including my husnad) Lol.... I'm hoping to make some friends and maybe even inspire someone as I've been.... Can't wait till I have a follower that's not actually a family member or co-worker and to win a Prize--how cool would that be?? :) 
Well it has happened!  I became Kelly's first 'real follower' she told me and now she has won my giveaway.  It feels so good to have this go to a new blogger.  Somehow it feels like Kismet! 
I hope you will stop by and visit her blog and give her some encouragement!  We all remember those early days and how just a few comments made our day!!  
Kelly please email me your address so I can get your gift sent to you!  Also another big thank you to Jane for sponsoring my giveaway!  She has been busy sewing and there are so many new Flora Doora's in her shop you should check them out.
Don't forget to join in my Junkin Finds Friday
the link will be up Thur evening! 

Happy Junkin!

A huge welcome to the blog world to Kelly. I love to find new bloggers and to reach out to them...unfortunately, I am unable to get onto Kelly's blog. For some reason, by computer doesn't like blogs with The Cutest Blog on the Block templates, and it always aborts them. The page will pop up for like three seconds (long enough for me to see where the blog template is from), and then it sends an "operation aborted" message. I've had this problem with several blogs lately, so it's not just Kelly.

So, Kelly, welcome to this wonderful world of blogging!!! You will love it. And I have no doubt you will make some wonderful friends by being here.

That's a very fitting conclusion to your birthday party-----that a new blogger should be encouraged by your giveaway.

Nice prize and a nice idea. I'll check out Kelly's blog too.

Happy b-day again!

Oh, that is neat, Linda! I think that is just perfect. Congratulations to Kelly! I'm so proud of her!

Do you know I won a rag doll when I first started blogging, and I had more fun with that and made lots of friends from the stories I wrote about her. I was a newbie, and I had no idea what I was doing and was lucky to get a post up. LOL! It was so good, and I think this is, too.
