Wow- another year plus gone.
The Love Visiting blog I was using became infected with a virus and has expired.
So I am now doing book reviews and giveaways on a new blog found at http://dogsmomvisits.blogspot.com/
Please come visit soon (and often) and don’t miss Ms Vanessa’s AMAZING Halloween party in October.
A Fanciful Twist
This past year has been the most unpredictable of my life. I miss blogging terribly but as we heard often on the Mad Tea Party hop, nothing is as it seems.
I have heard that WordPress has changed greatly since I have been away, so coming back will require time for a learning curve. I look forward to that.
Meanwhile, I do a few posts on Blogger at http://lovevisiting.blogspot.com
including announcements of many giveaways, contests, reading challenges, and as autumn approaches several more large themed hops, in which I hope you participate.
You can find me on pinterest at http://pinterest.com/bestlectic/
and if you leave a comment with your name/address I can follow you there.
It seems I am on facebook most of all, having joined new groups and taking a few classes online there as well. Laura DogsMom

And just this week I am slowly being convinced to join twitter so I can follow the junk girls as they take the 127 World’s Longest Yard Sale by storm, coming from all over including Canada! What should I use as a handle/twitter name?
The household has a few new babies and sadly a few of the older ones are waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. It is the cycle of life.
I want to continue the blogging relationships I value so highly.
I am not hosting a party this year but look what else we can look forward to!
It is the time of year where I am sharing computer time once again so this post will be very brief.
I shared with you the only after Christmas trip I made to Goodwill to take advantage of the 15% off Customer Appreciation coupon.
Have you heard that now Goodwill has a new savings program in place – a loyalty type program where you build points as you spend? What a time for me to cut back on my visits!
Here are a few snapshots of things I picked up after the holidays at 75% off, before the additional 15% discount was applied. Each of these items had been marked 49 cents (which is generally the lowest our GW will go – the exceptions being the $1.00 Target items sell for a quarter.) Even the Dollar Tree items which we all KNOW sold for a dollar originally are marked at least 99 cents if not higher. Preaching to the choir…..

Oh and of course now I can not get photos to work as I wish. Sorry.
These are things that I hope to use in crafty endeavors this year.
I will be back to do another post shortly.
