Mo, Congratulations on having over 200 Followers! And you are so sweet to have this give away. I did sign up as a follower but, more than that, I have you posted on my sidebar so I can keep up with your posting. You wanted us to tell you something that inspires us here... your talent at creating the buttons amazes me (I soooooooooo want to learn to do that & use photoshop elements) but, what inspires me is your generosity. You make something & SHARE! Sooooooooo many people create & post but guard their creations with a force to be reckoned with. You... create, show, share & move on to make more magic. THAT GENEROSITY INSPIRES ME! Thank you. And of course I'll post your button. HUGS!

BECKY said...

Hi Mo! I'm so happy I stopped by in time for your contest! But, gosh, I don't think I can possibly come up with just one inspiring thing from your blog!! I always love all your posts and pictures and designs, but you know....I think most of all, I've been inspired by your comments and e-mails to me! OH, and I LOVED the quotes from When Harry Met Sally on your New Year's post!! Love that movie!! :)

Beckey said...

What first attracted me to your blog was "rose petals". I truly love roses. My Grandma Rose was my hero, and I love anything with roses. They always remind me of her. My husband and I planted a rose bush on our wedding day, and did for many years afterward. Unfortunately we moved to a very cold climate, so my love affair cannot be with fresh roses anymore. That does not stop me though!

Thank you.
