The Big 2 - 0 - 0

So, here are 200 things you didn't know about me . . . just kidding. :)

I've been thinking long and hard about what to write in my 200th post. It's become a bit of a milestone out there in blog land and I wanted to do it justice. I won't bore you with lists and I know each and everyone one of you knows the great admiration I have for craft bloggers and all the wonderful friends I have made and cherish.

So what to talk about? My first post was on April 17th, 2006. All it said was Ta da! Here's my new blog. Very creative, no? I've enjoyed looking back over the treasures I have found and the items I have created. I've noticed many of them still in my everyday life. It's nice to actually USE what you thrift or make, isn't it? But still no inspiration struck me.

Then last night I had a dream that I was rich. This morning I was thinking how wonderful that would be. I could afford a therapist to tell all my troubles to. I could afford to spend months at a spa working on my health and weight management. I could afford to not have a job and just create. I would be able to have some crazy business where I made custom lampshades and even if they were garish, and the very well could be, my "friends" would buy them because I was rich (and thus famous) and who WOULDN'T want a peacock blue leopard print lampshade with gold fringe? Why it's a Goodness original isn't it??

Well I don't need all that monetary wealth because I am already rich. I have many good friends who's couch is always open to me to spill my guts on. And friends who will listen to my trials and tribulations of weight gain and offer recipes and to accompany me the gym. And while I can't quit my job (which would honestly be bliss) I can still create my little wonders and my REAL friends will want them regardless of how garish they are because I made them especially for them and from the heart. And of course because it's a Goodness original.

Thank you all for being my friends and letting me vent, cry and create with you and for you. I've lived, laughed, loved and wept along with many of you and I wouldn't trade that for all the wealth in the world.

In honor of my 200th post I'll be doing the traditional giveaway. I'm not sure what the prize will be but I know it will include something thrifted, something crafted and a whole lot of Goodness.

So if you're interested in receiving a little Goodness from me, please leave a comment here and I'll draw a random winner or perhaps 2. I'll send your goodies out sometime late next week.

I'm off to Charm City for my sister's wedding. Hugs my friends!

You blog is so aptly named. Everything you do is so sweet and optomistic. I was shocked when I first figured out you were a New-Yawka -- with all that country goodness, I thought for sure you were a small-town girl. Your blog is one of those that I must check every day. A thrifting and crafting inspiration!
