Surprise! Vacation!!

Surprise! Hubby and I are going on vacation tomorrow through Sunday! We are going to nail down a plan (which means decide where to go) and pack tonight and take off in the morning.

It seems so strange to be going just the two of us. This is our first vacation as "empty nesters." Plus we have rarely taken vacations all our lives. So we are excited to be getting to go somewhere!

I'll be blogging all about it next week!
And announcing the winner of my giveaway!

Yippee, I am following my followers!

Somehow I managed to add the 2 people I wanted to follow to my list. Yay! Whew!

There is the "lost" entry!

Ok, I see my lost entry about RetroReesa.

But I still don't remember how to follow someone...

UH OH, I need help again, please, friends!

I wrote a blog entry and I guess it disappeared into cyberspace!

Now I can't remember how to follow someone and I have 2 people I want to follow...

Anybody reading this, would you help me?

My second Etsy shop is reopened!

I now have one item listed in RetroReesa my Etsy shop for Retro-style jewelry and more. I plan to add more items every day, so check in and see what is there!

I'm having a giveaway in my Etsy shop, ReesasFavorites! I blogged about it below, be sure and read it and participate--you could win your the item of your choice currently listed in my doll specialty shop.

I am happy that this afternoon I am going to the fabric store with Maria (my daughter-in-law) and Kylie Jade (my baby granddaughter) ! Hancock Fabrics is having patterns on sale and we are going to pick out something for me to sew for Maria. I have recently made several things for Kylie Jade. It is so fun to be sewing for my girls! Sweet! ♥

Blog on!

Ok, here I go---

Today I will talk about,, uh,,,, what??? Right now I really can't think about anything other than the CPSIA, and I sure don't want to talk about that!

Think I'll put on some really LOUD music and sew something for my grandbaby. That always makes me feel better.

SN-R-G is having an awesome giveaway!

I'm having a giveaway in ReesasFavorites, my Etsy shop for doll clothes. And I'm of course interested in other people's giveaways too!

I found out about a wonderful giveaway by SN-R-G! I entered it myself so although I am hoping to be the winner, I will still generously share the information with you. LOL That's just the kind of person I am. And besides, I get an extra entry for blogging about it! ☺

Go to http://greenearthjourney.blogspot.com/2009/02/giveaway-from-sn-r-g.html to find out how to enter the drawing. You can win a child's shirt or onesie. The contest ends on February 15 at midnight and is open in the U.S.

I wonder which design and color will be your favorite? I picked the music design in a pink onesie. My baby granddaughter would look smashing in that, and it would be especially appropriate since both her parents play guitar. She loves for her dad to play for her, and she is allowed to strum the strings. She is 8 months old and will already "dance" and "sing."

Anyway, there are several different ways for you to enter SN-R-G's giveaway so go on over and find out how. http://greenearthjourney.blogspot.com/2009/02/giveaway-from-sn-r-g.html


Win YOUR Favorite Item in ReesasFavorites!

I am having a giveaway in my shop! You can easily enter and get a chance to win one item of your choice currently listed in ReesasFavorites. My shop contains doll clothes and accessories. The prize will be worth $10 - $15.

Visit my Etsy shop and pick your favorite item, then come back here to my blog and leave your comment in this post about which item it is and why you like it. Be sure to leave a way to get in touch with you if you are the winner of the drawing.

Contest ends on February 28.

Here I go blogging again!

All right, let's see if I can make this blog post without having to run crying "help me" to Amanda.

What should I talk about? Well, have I told you that I am on twitter now? Come tweet at me here.

I'm still not sure what all happened, but who cares???!! because it is fixed now. Thanks to the wonderful knowledgeable Amanda! ♥ She gave me step-by-step instructions which I followed and now the mysterious accidental blog is GONE. Whew!

Ok, look for me to be posting every day so I don't forget how...


EEEKKKK I'm having trouble here remembering how to post on my blog. Somehow I created a new account or blogspot or something. Sometimes I can go to it and sometimes I can't. Sometimes when I log in I see the post I wrote on ReesasFavorites@bellsouth.net (which it is supposed to be) and sometimes I don't. Sometimes I see three names to choose from when I'm signing in: ReesasFavorites@bellsouth.net (which is what I want for blogging) , Reesa, and ReesasFavorites--Reesa@bellsouth.net (there is no such email address!) I'm throughly confused and don't know what to do. When I figure this out I am going to blog every day so I don't forget how to do it!

I can't do this by myself so my good friend Amanda of sygnetcreations.etsy.com is helping me. She is the most patient person you will ever meet! I'm so grateful to have her as my friend. Thanks, Amanda! ♥
