Show and Tell and My Giveaway!



Hello and welcome to Friday's Show and Tell put on by http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/
This is the first part of my giveaway, a little pumpkin tassel with black fringe and checked ribbon...
But I have been working on a blessing album, I got the thought and idea from Melissa @ http://theinspiredroom.net/.

I was thinking wouldn't it be wonderful to have your family and friends in the next few weeks when they visit or you see them, write out something that they are grateful for, or that they consider a blessing.

S0000.......

I created this blessing book which is also the second part of the giveaway! There are sections, so you could write about your own personal experiences, a section for friends and family, and anything else.


I think we need to remind ourselves of the goodness we experience, focus on the blessings, the moments that take our breath away...

This book is for Precious People, Precious Moments, and Precious Memories...
Little tabs separate the sections...
It really did turn out sweet...



If you would like to be a part of this giveaway, then leave a comment. If you share this on your blog and let me know I will add your name twice. This giveaway will last till Oct.30th and I will announce the winner on the 31st. If you decide to make something similar to this for your family - or family gathering let me know and I will link to your blog! Thanks for stopping by.

Oh, how adorable! Please enter me in your give away!

I enjoyed reading about things that bless you. Blessings should never be over-looked, although we all do that sometimes. Even when we don't mean to.

Have a great weekend!

What an awesome idea. If you have a large gathering in your home this season, what a lovely momento of the occasion.

Constance said...

What a fantastic idea! I like the thought of tangibly remebering our Blessings! So many times we get caught up in the day to day meat grinder of life and lose heart! Heck yeah, enter my name, I could use this!

Last week I shared about my Grandma's trunk, the "before restoration" photos. I got it back and I have posted its transformation on today's S&T.

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

I love hearing about your blessings so much and raised my coffee cup (with creamer in it) and said, "amen" when I read you consider coffee a blessing. My dad always said coffee is the preferred beverage of/in Heaven!
I sent a friend over to your blog the other day -Her name is Lori from the blog Morning Glories and Moonflowers-She just wrote me and said she has fallen in love with your blog-She is a Christian too and a wonderful lady like yourself. OH I see that she left you a comment! :)
Just wanted to know you are a blessing to us!
Robin~♥

Debbie,
Wow! I love the Blessings book, and I would love to make one to put out at Thanksgiving. I would then give it to my in-laws who are in their 80s. They would so appreciate it. Can you give us more detailed instructions on how to make it?

This is a wonderful giveaway and what a great idea. I have been so richly blessed with a wonderful family and so many precious memories, that I know I could fill this Blessing Book, but I would most likely give it as a gift to my sweet daughter as she and her husband have blessed us with precious grandson.

I just read a post this morning about a 30yr old woman with stage 4cancer at 35 wks pregnant, just two months ago she was healthy as an ox. It really hit home how blessed I am and that I should be very thankful because the future is unknown.
