100th post.....


.....wow.....can't believe it. And lately I've been terribly lax about posting. But I appreciate any who stop by and read my blog. Rest assured I have more big plans for the next 100!! So, I tried to decide how best to celebrate and I came up with 2 ideas.



First I wanted to share this amazing video that came my way this week from a very dear friend. I don't forward many emails, especially not to everyone on my list, but this was the exception. Watch and I think you will agree. My response was two words: Amen and Wow!! Enjoy!!

Second I wanted to have a giveaway to celebrate my 100th post. I am planning to send to a loving home, one of the latest bags I have crocheted. You can find more in my Etsy store: http://www.shellyraewood.etsy.com/ This bag is fun and flirty and pink!! It is made from a variegated pinks yarn and a luscious pink homespun yarn. It features 2 fun vintage buttons for the closure.



















So, now you're wondering how do I enter to win this goodie?? All you need do is reply to THIS post only, making sure I can contact you via email. You must also give me your best caption for the following picture. We'll have a family vote and choose the winners. Don't stress....just have fun, ok?? All entries must be in by Wednesday, February 3rd, midnight Eastern time. The picture is of 2 of our girls: Jinx and Smudgey.
Apparently I left my studio desk drawer open a bit.......

Oh my gosh, pink is my daughter's favorite color! I would love to fill this with other Valentine Day goodies and surprise her! Congrats on your milestone post as well-blogging is such fun! I also love the pics of the cats in the drawer. Mine do the same thing, they seem to like to get into things and snuggle-they look like twins, for a moment I thought I was seeing double! Are they from the same litter?

The bag is awesome, and I would so love to win it since pink is also my favorite color. I started on a bag one time....now where did I put that.

Hi Shell, great web site. I agree with karlasue,when someone hands you the ball,you run with it. Keep up the good work. We're all real proud of you. Here's my caption. "Gosh Jinxy,a couple of gals like us can't go anywhere to get away from the Poperatzy." Hope to see you soon. Love Uncle K.
