NEW BBEST BLOG RING.

www.ringsurf.com/ring/nr7085/ is the link. click on add your site, and follow the instructions; note that you have to have a 1000 character description of your blog before you can sign up!

I thought it was probably easier to just delete the existing blog ring, and start again. I tried using another provider, but really didn't get the instructions at all, so have gone back to blogring.

Any problems, give me a shout. Convo, for preference, please.
good luck!

I'm first! I'm first! I'm first! That hasn't happened in years, if ever. Memory not that long! Copying below the post I just put on the May thread, right before this one popped up! Hope everyone has a good day.

Other post:
Confessing I haven't been here forever, don't know what is happening! Did participate in the swap, and received the loveliest pendant from Cindy at ccvalenzo! Just love it. But haven't photographed it yet to put on the flickr site. Glad I checked in today to see about the promote each other's shops reminder. Didn't know about that either, but think it is a wonderful idea. Can't catch up on this thread. Have to get ready to go work in Indy for two days with my Mom. Thoughts and prayers for anyone in need. Wishes for lots of sales for everyone. Hope for me is to get here more often.

Good morning everybody.....Happy Wednesday!!

did somebody say ICE CREAM????? yummmmmmmmmmm... just in time for breakfast!!

After hubby left for work this morning, I started cleaning and puttering around... kept hearing noise outside - I thought somebody was messing around the house or deck or something.. took me a few minutes to realize it was Thunder!! We haven't had any in so long, I forgot what it sounded like, hehe.. then a few minutes later, here came the rain - Heavy, downpours - YAY!!! It just stopped tho, so only about half an hour of it, not nearly enough but we'll take it!!

When I first signed on Etsy this morning - I renewed my Purple matchbooks cos they had expired.... when I checked Heartomatic (craft cult) about 25 minutes later, there were 845 views for my lst page of my shop and 45 for my 2nd page!!! What the heck??? I'd like to think that was for real, but I'm sure it's a fluke...

Jill - take a pic of the card and put it on flickr... or will that not show what you are wanting us to see??

yankee - awwww, sorry your fundraiser was cancelled.... but you'll be all prepared for next week. Stay safe with your storms!

ceci - I don't think I mentioned yesterday... I was on flickr looking at all your beauties - awesome work!!!

***waves***.. gotta run. time is getting away from me....

Hope all of you have a wonderful day!!

see ya
duckie

Thanks, Jill, for recopying the message I put on the old thread. You are on the ball, girl! Is there a listing thread for June or should I use the May one?

Posted at 6:30 am Jun 1, 2011 EDT

I deleted the post I had for Pam's post on the May Thread.
Pam, I'll make a new listing thread in a minute. Should have done that first. Oh well!
