I love my sweet friend Jenneke!!!!

One day I opened up my email and was so excited to find a comment from a woman named Jenneke from Holland. Holy WOW...I was so surprised...She commented on my blog for a giveaway I had around last Christmas. I found out she was up late with the can't sleeps and just ended up on my blog. Little ol' me. Well I have to say I am so happy she visited me that day, because my scrapbooking life has forever changed.... I was in a creative rut...trying to figure out where to go next. Had lots of ideas no place to really share them and get positive or any feedback. I really scrapbooked what everyone else want me to scrapbook I had no true style, I knew I loved scrapbooking and loved to teach and show people where they could be creative. Don't get me wrong I was working at a scrapbook store and had inspiration all around me... Jenneke opened a whole new world for me. When I went to Sicily and could not find one scrapbooking store I guess I just figured it was mostly in the states....I was so wrong. Just visiting Jenneke's blog was so new and refreshing to me. Then I slowly figured out you could click on links from her blog and from there I now have many blog friends. Special women who are the most gifted, kind and Super hero style creative women I know...I am so Thankful to know you all, but most of all Thankful to Jenneke....You may not know it but you in a way made me realize why I love to be creative....why I started scrapbooking in the first place. FOR FUN....Because there are no rules....Because I can create whatever I want and it is great just because I love it. Thank you all for encouraging me. It would be so awesome to spend time with you in this house. Just the girls. WOW...Like a dream!!!

Why am I saying all of this....Jenneke just posted her 100th blog post. She is giving away an amazing prize....All we had to do was post on her blog and put something on our blog about her giveaway. I do not go into details above because I want to win....I tell this story because I talk of Jenneke and My blog friends often...This gives a little more of my heart on the subject....All I have said is straight from my heart and this giveaway just shows you how kind, absolutely amazing and wonderful Jenneke is. I love you my sweet friend!!! You must check out her blog here. She has some wonderful pages. I promise you will love her as much as I do!!!

She is giving away a stay at this beautiful house in Holland and you can bring friends. I would love to see all the ladies who Jenneke has introduced me to thru her blog....Win so we could have the best time ever...Together in person... Here is a photo of the house. Oh my goodness. Beautiful.
