**CLOSED**Monday, April 19th and a Giveaway!


Title and background of my first blog

A year ago 04/19/2009, with a little help from Blogger and
 Dawn, from The Feathered Nest,, I put together my
first blog and posted the same day. 212 posts, 562 followers, giveaways,
projects, photos, and more photos are journaled here. Hundreds of thoughtful
comments from bloggers and readers are penned here. Snippets of my
life with family and friends are between photos and carefully typed web pages.
There is something medicinal about journaling your life.
My Wisconsin
Two years ago, June 30th, my husband and I picked up lock stock and barrel,
and moved to the southwest. (Our son, daughter-in-law and 5 grandchildren live here.)
After living in Wisconsin for over 43 years,
this was not an easy task. We left behind extended family and friends. :-(
My heart is with my husband, so as a wife that made it a tiny bit easier. :-)
And the thought of going back a couple times a year!
Blogging has been a way of taking some of that long distance
lonesomeness and turning it into something good by keeping in close contact with
people that we love. Blogging is a blessing and an outlet. For me, I can type out as little
or as much as I like. ALL of the comments left here
have been a huge blessing. I read all of them and look forward to
more as I share my life here in the southwest.
Believe me when I say, I have been blessed in so many ways.
As a little token of appreciation I'm giving a little something away.

To enter:
Leave a comment here.
For U.S. residents only.
Thank you!
I'm taking a little from each giveaway I've had in the past and
will pack a sweet little box for one winner.
A little from here:
A couple of these:
How about some of these?
Perhaps a few charms?

A couple more charms to put you in a royal mood...

You'll love it!
Remember to enter in this post just once,

  7. What a lovely thing to say to all of us. I can so relate to what you have said. My husband and I moved to North Carolina from WV, where I was born and raised and lived all my life. We have been in NC for six years now and when I started blogging almost one year ago, my life changed for the better.
    Congratulations on your first year anniversary
    and thanks for the opportunity to win such a nice giveaway.

    Thanks for being one of my blogging friends.
    You are adored.

  11. Congratulations on your blogiversary! I've moved around so much I have never really called any one place "home" but after 43 years in one place I can imagine how difficult that must have been for you.

    Your giveaways are always so fabulous!!

  16. I so enjoy your blog since I've stumbled onto it. Where in Wisconsin did you live? I have always lived here. Several diferent cities and now pretty much central Wisc. Black River Falls. Are you familiar with that area? Would love to win one of your great giveaways.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm so glad you moved and felt the need to blog to reach old and new friends. We readers have sure benefited from it! You are such a sweetie to share your thoughts, your talents, your creativity and now a great giveaway! Thanks for all of it!

  18. What wonderful things in your give-away... I'm imagining collages and other art pieces to use them on... How generous and sweet you are. I enjoy your blog and all the pretty and creative images. Keep up the good work and look forward to more.

  19. Congratulations on your Blogversary! Thank you for a chance to win this very fun and generous give away!:)

  20. What a lovely post to celebrate a lovely occasion : ) It was nice to read your thoughts on picking up and moving. Being married to a Brit, we often think about moving over there so he can be close to his mum...for us, that would mean leaving 2 adult children and 3 grandsons....really makes it difficult, but I also know that God blessed me with a husband who I would follow anywhere : )

    Here's fingers crossed that I may have an opportunity to finally win a piece of Robin's Egg Blues!

  21. Congratulations! Wow you have had one really terrific year!! Blogging is the best, don't ya love it. I moved away from family and friends 4 yrs ago and went to AZ so I understand how you feel. Hoping that life is settling there and you are enjoying your new home.

  26. I could not imagine living without the loving support of my family close by. Consider yourself a brave pioneer. I do, however, understand the friendship of like-minded soul bloggers.
    **PEACE**

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, I can so empathize with you! My hubby and I moved from Idaho to N. Calif to be closer to the majority of our grandchildren because I was missing the grandkids' growing-up years and there were too many tears (from them and me) after visits ended. We left relatives and friends behind; one was my youngest son, who promptly ended up getting married and having 2 children! So now I'm missing those little ones. I started my blog shortly after we moved here--same reason as you started yours. I've met so many wonderful friends through blogging! Wouldn't it be great if we could be in 2 places at the same time?!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh my goodness I didn't know you were from WI, a fellow cheese head? I was born and raised here but have moved several times only to come back. I am waiting till grandchildren come and I will need to go.
    Congratulations on all the accomplishments in a year with blogging, I see why because you are such a warm and inviting person and we flock to you!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi Linda K, I certainly think that blogging has been a great therapy for me. It gives me an outlet, but it also helps me meet and talk to women who just get me. I stay at home everyday and am not typically around many people in my day to day life, so this has been a joy filled experience. The best part about it are the connections we make. I just love it so much!

    I don't always write, because it's even hard to keep up my own blog, but I always stop by. And even read your posts from year ago.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and your life, it's inspiring.

  51. Happy 1 year anniversary! I found you via Dawn at Feathered Nest and am so looking forward to exploring your blog. It takes a certain kind of courage to pick up and move like that - but I am sure being so much closer to your family made it worth while.

    Blessings,

  54. We are from the midwest too and have a vacation home in Wisconsin. It is a brave thing to do - packing up and moving so far from where you were living. But moving nearer to family makes it all worthwhile!

  67. I know how hard it is to leave friends and family behind and move. It must be wonderful to be closer to your grandchildren. I have 19 grandkids all over the place. One in Texas, 6 in Alaska and 3 in Washington. I have them visit when they can, and I visit when I can. Not easy.
    Thank you for having your blog, your one of my favorites. I love what you make and show. I always try to copy some of the things and make them up for one of the grandkids.
    Please put my name in the hat. Thanks again.

  93. Robin, I know exactly what you mean about how much a blog can fill some empty places in your life. I was thinking the same thing this morning and wish all of my blogging friends lived in my neighborhood instead of all over the world. Yet...meeting with you and all of my other blog girlfriends here - oh - what a joy to look forward to every day and when I can't, I miss you all so much. It's been that kind of a week for me and I now have time to catch up.

    Thank you for offering the giveaway. Please count me in.
