I started this blog last August before Mr. Romance and I were heading off to France for a few weeks vacation in Brittany. I called it "on vacation with Doc and di". The original idea of the blog was so our children and a few friends and relatives could follow along on our trip through France. You can check out some of the posts here, here and here.
After we returned home from vacation, I would write random things on the blog. After a few months I realized the title did not fit. I changed the name of the blog to Random Thoughts do or "di" since I write about so many different things. I started posting family things and then I started searching and discovered quilting blogs and photography blogs and cooking blogs...all things that I enjoy. I incorporated these things into my blog and I have become an avid blog follower and blogger!
In February, I got involved with the One World One Heart blog tour and gained a few followers. Now this was fun. I am going to do it again next year. It is renamed to be Our World Our Art.
I have learned so much from other's blogs and that started a real desire to quilt and sew more. I really enjoy the blogging world and the friends I have met along the way. I even got to meet one follower in person last Friday. Cindy was coming to California with her husband, for business, and asked if I would want to meet her at the Long Beach quilt show last week. We met and it was great fun. We'll be seeing each other again when we both attend the Sewing Summit in Utah this October.
The majority of my followers are quilters, so in honor of you I am celebrating with a few give aways all month long. Now if you notice on my side bar I am NOT sponsored. So, I have made a bunch of little gifts and will be having a drawing each week for a small prize. They will get a little bigger as the month goes on.
This week's prize is a mug rug.
So to enter this week's drawing leave me a comment. I will pick the winner on Friday. All entries must be in by Midnight, Pacific time, on Thursday, August 4, 2011. All are welcome, I will ship internationally.
1. Tell me how you found my blog...for one chance to win.
2. Become a follower for another chance. Be sure to leave a comment to tell me you are a follower. If you follow by RSS feed, you can leave a second comment for that, too.
I will be having a drawing at the end of the month for followers only.
Please make sure I have a way to contact you if you win. If you are a no-reply commenter and I am not able to contact you, I will draw another winner.
Thanks for stopping by,
