Bits of Peace

Little by little I am learning how to blog. I love my new background from hotbiggityblog. There are several nifty choices.

All Sunday afternoons should be as lazy as the one I've just spent. Visiting, reading, walking puppies, listening to lovely piano music, and eating chocolate cake (warm) with gooey cream cheese frosting.

I ought to have some great insights, but not tonight. Just gratitude for peace.

Peace to all.

With thanks to a wonderful tutorial (Chocolate on my Cranium), I now have a snazzy signature. I may get the hang of blogging yet!

I follow a few blogs here and there. One of my very favorites is Chocolate on my Cranium. Cocoa's insights are always wise and wonderful. I know I'd like this lady in person!

This week she posted an "offer" of sorts and challenged others to do the same. I think it's a good idea so I'll do it too. I know I'm not followed much and I don't know quite what you might get. Since I really like to cook, it may be something to eat. Every now and then I'm hit by a burst of craftiness so it may be home decor. I guess you'll just have to take your chances if you want to find out. 

The "rules" of this game are to commit to do the same. Post it to your blog and see what happens;) Good Luck! --

 For the first five bloggers to leave a comment on this post and commit to do the same pay-it-forward on their blogs I will do the following and if you are one of the five this is what you will paste in your pay-it-forward post too :

I am willing to post overseas (I am in the U.S.), but remember you must commit on your blog to do the same for others.

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I send you. But you may be pleasantly surprised. It will definitely be made by me.
2. What I send will be made just for you, with love, by my own hands. You'd be surprised how much of our personalities does come through online.
3. I will complete all 5 gifts this year - 2009. (So I guess the offer expires at the end of this year.)
4. I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It will be something made in the real world, that you can touch,taste,  or feel, and not something cyber.
5. I reserve the right to do something strange. It may be weird or beautiful. Or it may be monstrous and annoying. If you find it truly horrendous, just let me know. Perhaps you'll send it forward to someone who will absolutely love it.
6. In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post (one for each).
7. Send your mailing address - after I contact you to confirm.
