Grow your blog!!!

2 Bags Full is hosting a party in the blog land! And if there is a party I'm in!

I have been blogging since February 2008 (wow, it will be five years soon!). I blog about everything, my hobbies, the beautiful cold North, current events if they touch my heart.

There will be no party without a 'door prize'. I will not tell you what the prize is but I can tell you that it will be a surprise from the North of 60. The winner will be announced on February 1st. Please leave a comment or two and make sure that I have your email address so I can contact you if you're the winner.  Now, let's have fun and explore the Blog Land!

So Long my friends,
Evalina

  31. Hi Evalina,

    You are an absolute GODDESS in my book! I was reading your post about quitting your 9 to 5 job. I can't applaud you enough for making such a bold move. My commute is about 2.5 hours between the morning and afternoon. I am learning transcription work so I can do that from home as my bread and butter which will leave the rest of the time for crafting.

    Thank you so much for your visit. I have become a follower so that I can read tales of your new life as a self employed crafter. Whaaa Hooo! Here's wishing you a beautiful day!

    Cheers!
    Kellie

  150. Finally I have time to come over and visit you and your lovely blog! I am loving that dog in the background, he looks exactly like my dog!

    So sorry to hear you were sick, I hope you are better now, if not please get better soon and maybe get some antibiotics? I was sick with that dreadful flu that is going around for two weeks straight and that was with taking the antibiotics! I never want to get that again!

    Your cross stitching is beautiful!

    The Surprise give-away sounds interesting!! I am having a Give-Away too if you haven't seen it yet. Thank you so much for following me for the Blog Party and I am following you now too!

  151. I'd have needed a week off to get round all the blogs in the party, it's been a huge success. I hope Vickie does it next year too.
    Get well soon!

  152. Hi Evalina, Thanks for stopping by my blog. We share a love for cross-stitching and embroidering. I see you came from Poland, My husband's grandparents came from there and he still has some relation over there. I have been catching up with my reading tonight. I needed a change of scenery with everything that I have going on in my life right now. Have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to reading more of the blogs and making new friends. Prayers are coming your way that you get to feeling better soon. Your New Missouri Friend.

  154. It is nice to meet you. I love your stitching, but can't imagine living so far north! It was 19 degrees here last night and that was way too cold for me. Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Hope to see more of your beautiful stitchery. Love, Linda

  158. Thanks for visiting my blog. I had a bit of trouble tracking down your blog but I'm here now. I'm very interested in the Quaker stitching as my grandparents generation were all Quakers. The blog party has been great hasn't it? Like you I have found so many great, new to me blogs.
