"It is reasonable to expect perfection,
although I am well aware it will never be
reached." (but will be content with
everything running smoother)
May I sweep a few things by you ?
Sometimes we just need reminders…..
I recently had some inquiries anonymously, about a lot of things..
SEEMS they are concerned that they never win…
BLESS THEIR HEARTS!
But before I shed some light on this…( we turned back our clocks, so it
is still dark here)
It's time for some FALL cleaning...
a) If you commit to a hop, COMMIT, simple as that!
b) Cheerleaders will send out the schedule- two weeks prior to hop,
if you cannot commit, DROP OUT right there and then.
And please no pages upon pages of excuses....just drop out AND tell us!
( no penalty)
c) If you drop out or don't show up- once the schedule is up,
for whatever reason, unless a family emergency.
( we are accommodating to a point)
YOU will be placed on THE LIST.
( you do not want to be on that list)
YOU have 2 months to get your project ready!
d) If drop outs occur again , we will reduce the hops
to only 50 members and we will choose
those members we can count on...
NO more discussion ! Shake your head please,
altogether...." I understand Mdm Samm" lol
Humour me !
Some facts about me!
I am in rolling into my 4th year of managing this blog.
I go to school full time, I am in my 3rd year
of a 4 year program!
I am the chairman of a board for a
I manage delightful cheerleaders,
and work very closely with all of them...
I seek out every sponsor!
I negotiate giveaways for YOU!
( if I want something I CAN afford to buy it)
I plan 6-9 months ahead for our blog hops.
I am very organized! DUH lol
I sleep on average 8-9 hours every night!
I do not get paid one dime from anyone!
I send out every sponsored giveaways to winners
with many extras stuffed into their red packages
much more than anyone would ever expect to receive.
I pay for all the packaging out of my own pocket..
and they are costly!
I pay for extra bandwidth, extra storage, extra
software to protect this blog…
thousands of dollars per year to keep this blog going!
Yes everyone pays for shipping, again
the extras I add are often double what their cost
of shipping is! Sponsors do not pay for shipping!
Although they do send me extra that I share with
the winners time and time again!
I do not add the winners blog link, because in the past,
some actually found they did not win from other blogs
when someone saw they won from us.
I do not have favourites. Ask around, everyone
from every country can win from us and do!
I choose by your ISP's this way, if we have duplicates
our software counts you only once!
NEVER EVER has anyone NOT received their winnings,
which means we have never ever lost a prize.
My goal is simple... I am thrilled when the
LIGHT is shining on others!
I have had my fame....IHCP!
I love that we come together GLOBALLY,
language is not even our barrier.
"I will always be behind you, gently moving you forward…"
We come together to share...
We are women, quilters, sewers, embroiders...
We need each other!
That is why we are ALL HERE!
I work on this blog around the clock!
anywhere from minimum 6 hours to 16 hours every day
7 days a week!
My family, husband, friends miss me!
I have made a commitment, and I am not known to quit anything!
I am thrilled when things run smoothly.
I adore all those who have been cheering everyone since
I began this journey.
I have an AMAZING, LOVING husband
who knows YOU make me HAPPY!
So he is happy! He is really YOUR cheerleader...
He tells me " I share YOU with THEM"
You have to cheer him for that!
That is it for my fall cleaning!
YOU are kind, smart and important to me.
