  36. Appreciated your post Blessed. I was on my school board for 20 years. I truly felt it wasn't a job, it wasn't an elected position (although it was), it was a calling and I hope I was able to affect students like you have. I have felt so many of the same feelings you express. And I have felt blessed for being able to serve these past 20 years.

  65. wow! what an amazing giveaway! i've gotten away from mixed media because i don't have enough space for it and fibre work in my studio, but this would send me right back to it!

    the first thing i saw when i popped in was your post about body image, and it made me super happy. i've posted about that on my blog as well (under the tag "fat", i think) and fat acceptance is a huge part of my politics.

    it also made me happy (and sad) to see that you have fibro as well. it sucks that you do, but it's always nice to run into someone else!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm new to your blog and I love your writing style. It's like I'm listening to you talk!

  76. WOO! That's a fantastic haul!
    I just visited for the first time and read your blog entry about body image. That post is my favorite part of your blog. I have been having problems lately with the way I look, especially since becoming a mother myself and coming to terms with the fact that I no longer have the body I used to and I'm really struggling with it, but your story made me smile and brought me a little hope that while I may never look the same, I can still be happy with who I am now.

    Thanks for posting your story, and Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

  102. I read your post about body image. I love that you said this... What I am saying is don't be ashamed of yourself right now, don't put your life on hold "until I lose [x number of] pounds".

    I wrote a post very similar to that a while back. As a (very amateur) photographer I am always looking for friends to practice photoshoots with and many of them have been telling me for over a year now "weight until I lose some weight." So sad. This is them right now... they are going to be missing chunks of memory someday because they refused to get in front of the camera.
