100th Post Giveaway

This is my 100th blog post! My very first post was on February 8, 2009, so I'm going on three years of blogging. This year I have blogged twice as much as in 2009 and 2010 put together. Since my blogging has been so sporadic, I haven't done anything for my ”blogiversaries,” but I thought it would be fun to mark the 100 post milestone with a little giveaway. Thank you  for stopping by here to see what I have to say, and thanks especially for taking the time to comment. I have really enjoyed getting to know people via their blogs, and have found blogging to be a great learning experience and creative outlet.

I'm giving away one knitted to order (meaning you can choose the color and texture) wash/dishcloth and a bar of Monastery soap. I have a few kinds on hand, so I'll let you choose your scent (or lack thereof). The monks aren't paying me or bribing me to promote their soap. :) I just like it.

To enter, just  leave a comment here by Monday, December 5 at 8:00 am Eastern Time. I'll randomly generate a winner and announce the results Monday evening. Since the prize is small and lightweight, I'll ship anywhere. Because I tend to write about a variety of topics, I'd welcome comments about the type of content on my blog that most interests you (but that's not required to enter). Thanks for reading!


  1. fun! would love to be entered! :) I like your blog for many reasons, including that we share the same profession and I enjoy hearing about your life. :) Best wishes to you this Nativity fast! :)

  2. The reasons I love your blog are so many. Besides everything else, I enjoy the crafty things you do (headboard, stencilled wall, etc.) because it gives us all such good ideas and tips.

  3. I really enjoy watching you renovate - the floors and the painting. We already have hardwood through out the house. I sure wish cork had been around when this house was built in the 60's.

    I have been slowly doing this to bedrooms as the last two married and moved away and left us with "free" bedrooms for guests. When we finish the second bedroom, it will be time to begin the repaint of other rooms in the house that haven't had attention for 10 years.

  4. I love monastery soap! I really enjoy reading about how you have been upgrading your house.

  5. I love your calm voice and your beautiful words.
    Happy 100th post!

  6. Congratulations on making it to 100!

    I've loved watching your renovations. Your master bedroom looks incredible. I don't live too far away; maybe you can come and fix my boring, white bedroom sometime ;).

    I love monastery soap as well. Our parish has a close relationship with the monastery, and we love going to visit. Thanks!

  7. I didn't know you knit too! Your writing is much more cohesive than mine... I like your style.
