Awhile back I wrote a very brief post about commenting on people's blogs.
It read like this ---

I have a new acronym...LACE
It stands for Leave A Comment Everytime. 

I know people visit my blog...I see it in the tracker-thingamijig. 
But there's rarely any comments left.  :(

Now we all know how bloggers just love to read
comments left by visitors on their blogs - right? 
But then I got to thinking - that can be dangerous! 
And I have to admit...I hardly ever leave a comment on the blogs I visit. 
Guilty as charged!

So now I will LACE on every blog I visit.  How about you?  :)

Blessings to you, denise  :D

I have to admit that I have not been "practicing what I preach"!
I promise to do better.

It's so much easier on Facebook...
You just have to hit the Like button.
No comment needed.
The person knows you like what they  posted.
That you acknowledge them in some way.

That's what commenting on a person's blog does -
Acknowledges and affirms.
Sends a virtually hug.
Says I like what you created.
Thanks for sharing your life, your love,
your fears, your doubts,
your creative endeavors and your makes,
your thoughts and your ideas.

Simple as that!
You don't have to write anything
a smiley face will do.

Try it!

Made With Love 4 My Sister

I just love making bracelets.
All kinds of bracelets.

Here is a bracelet I made for my sister, Sherri.

This "Sister Love" bracelet incorporates a variety of
turquoise and silver beads with silver findings
that represent the special relationship that we have.

The turquoise cross represents our faith in 
our heavenly Father as well as in each other. 

The silver heart (kinda turned on its side in the photo)
represents the love we have shared for a lifetime.

The turquoise bird represents on times together
at our little cabins in the woods.
My place is called "Niecey's Nest".  :)

The turquoise heart represents our love of our families -
brothers, mother, father, our own children, nieces, nephews,
in-laws, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Whew!  That's a lot of lovin' there!

May God bless my precious sister always and in all ways.
I love you, Sherbs!  xoxo

"God Bless America" Bracelet

I recently posted a request for ideas and suggestions
for my new bracelet-making adventure on 

One of my quilting friends, Cheryl, suggested
a patriotic "For God and Country" memory wire bracelet.

Here is what I Made With Love especially for her:

The single yellow bead is in honor of all of our military personnel
who are deployed and away from family and friends.
May God protect them and bring them safely home.

I used a variety of patriotic beads and charms with silver findings

Proud to be an American!

Boxed and ready to go to its new home!
Congratulations, Cheryl, for your great idea.

Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
Maybe you could be the lucky winner of a bracelet
designed just for you using your idea(s).

Thanks for stopping by.
Wishing you a blessed day from the USA!
