I better correct that right now!~ LOL.
Ya all know what day it is, right?? It's the 15th of the month, the usual 'blog-get-together'
of the triple *D*'s (Dueling Darling Dazzlers/or Divas)
See here for details, if you are a new follower and have no idea what I am talking about...LOL *wink* http://paola-sama.blogspot.com/2010/10/its-duelling-darlings-timeo.html
The darling,wonderful gals who hosted the awesome theme for this month are : Debbie (for the Dazzlers)
and Carol (for the Divas) Putting their heads together they came up with a super idea that incorporates the love of Starbucks coffees that both our Dueling Darlings head leaders *Jeanette and Kelly* love so much...(I would even venture to say that one of them is absolutly addicted to SB...but I will never utter a word WHO that gal is!!....LOL)..truth be known many of us 'Darlings' love SB probably just as much...
and will seek any opportunity to enjoy a wonderful cup-o-java treat :o)
The theme is : "The Perfect Blend".....very appropriate in so, so many ways, not just about coffee addictions or preferences...in fact,part of
the theme is to give a *shout out* to our wonderful group leaders. For us dazzlers, the amazing person at the helm is Jeanette, who is ALWAYS,and I mean ALWAYS, ready and willing to help out in any which way pssible...weather we need a kind ,soothing word of encouragment or a crafting tip. I cannot count how many times she aided me and guided me throughout some challenging 'technical' times,especially when I started my blog...
♥ Jeanette ♥
What to say in just a few words,about
this wonderful, gifted, compassionate on line friend of mine?
Perhaps by trying to describe a small part of the big character that she truly is, by making a
♥ J - jovial
♥ E - enthusiastic
♥ A - altruistic
♥ N- nurturing
♥ E - efficient
♥ T - talented
♥ T - trustworthy
♥ E - eloquent
Aptly, the meaning of her name is :"GOD IS GRACIOUS "!
Last but certainly not least,
THANK YOU so much Debbie for the fantastic kit sent.
