It's a Blog Makeover!!!!

I'm sure you have all noticed by now my fabulous new blog!! I LOVE it!!! Did you see the little kitty peeking over on the header?? Well did you??? This was all the doing of the amazing Madame Samm.

It went down a little something like this. I got an email from Samm asking for my phone number. Oh no I thought, I had just put my post for Stash Manicure into the que and I thought maybe I did something wrong. YIKES!! Then I received "the call" from Samm. I have always loved all the blog make overs she had done for others but number one, I would not dare to presume to ask for one and two, how on Earth would she take note of little old me? She has stated on numerous occasions that she has visions for people's blogs and then asks them if they would like a make over. She does it all, new header, background, button and siggy. (I'm probably leaving something out not being a techy and all). Well, she was calling to say she wanted to re-do my blog and my friend PTM's blog too. Now don't get me wrong but I think I was more excited for PTM than for myself!!!

I had convinced PTM to begin blogging in the first place. I was so excited that she was blogging and I know her DH set her all up. PTM just adores Madame Samm (me too) so I knew she would be so excited when Samm told her. BUT...I was not allowed to tell her!! Do you know how difficult it was to keep something like this from my BFF?? It was sheer agony I tell ya!! But oh so worth every second of it.

I can't stop looking at it. When Samm called me yesterday she asked me what color I was, green? I said I could be, and she asked me to tell her my color and I told her aqua or turquoise. She laughed and said that explained why she couldn't decide between blue or green for me. I think the color is absolutely perfect don't you?? Then she called me to preview it. What no cats?? She laughed again and just look at that little darling peeking over the top at you? Is she not just the cutest thing you ever saw???

I have no idea how I can thank you Madame Samm for all the time and effort you put in on a blog for someone you don't even know. You have made my month. Also I am so thankful for what you did for Pauline too. You have encouraged someone by being so generous with your time and talents! It is true, you never know how much you may effect someone's life by a little kindness. So from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!! You have 2 devoted friends here in Michigan!!

Your Blog is Awesome!! Madame Samm is going to makeover the entire Quilting world with her creative kindness!! I have loved my makeover and I am such a small blogger, I could not believe she helped ME!! I love your blog even before the makeover. I'm excited for you and your BFF!! As for your DD2 who broke up with her BF of 5 yrs,. been there and done that. All you can do is be there when and if she wants to talk. It only means someone better is around the corner. God's timing is always perfect.
Blessings
