Mother’s Day Giveaway!

Red Sparkle Evening Clutch and Drawstring  bagMother’s Day is just around the corner and I wanted to do something nice for all of my readers.  You probably all know that  crochet a little bit and that  I also have an Etsy shop.  Lately I have been really into bags- clutches, backpacks, drawstring bags, hobo bags – you name it.

Well what woman doesn’t like a cute bag? So to save one lucky reader the trouble of purchasing too many Mother’s Day gifts, I have decided to give away one or more bags within the next two weeks. Here’s all that you have to do:

1. Visit my Etsy site and use the Share link on the right to Tweet about one of my items – make sure that you include #Niseylee in tweet so that I can search for it

2. If you don’t have a Twitter account, become a fan of my Crochet From The Heart page on Facebook, share one of my pics or items  and leave a comment on this post to let me know that you did.

3. Read and comment on at least one of my blog posts

4. Add a link to this post on your blog (if u have a blog that is)

5. On Saturday April 24th I will choose  someone to send a bag to, I will rinse and repeat on May 1 st, so be sure to participate both weeks!

I haven’t decided which bags to give away yet, but here are pictures of likely candidates (the two red sparkly bags on the top left are included). If you have trouble with any of the tasks please let me know!

Which Michael Jackson are you mourning?

I am a pretty emotional person who feels things deeply. Back in 97, I got up at 2 am to watch Princess Di’s funeral- and cried through the entire thing (she died on the day I finally received my bachelors degree and they buried her onmy birthday, should have been a great week for me, I know). When my dog Storm passed last month, I cried for days afterwards. And let’s not even talk about Tupac.

Of course I am mourning MJ and my husband knows this, so last night he asked me to pose a question to my friends and readers. The question is “Which Michael Jackson died for you on Thursday?”

Is it the little guy in the suede vest singing “I Want You Back”?

Or is it the gawky adolescent who sang “Ben”?

Maybe for you it’s the dude who brought us “Thriller”, “Beat It”, and “Billie Jean”

Did Michael Jackson the MoonWalker and “Smooth Criminal” pass away?

Or was it just Wacko Jacko? That overexposed and strange looking dude?

Is it the end of the month already? Well let’s wrap it up shall we?
Couple of months ago I invited some of youse (that’s how we say y’all in Brooklyn) to join me in taking that excess weight off.  I am happy to report that I did manage to take off about 10lbs and am now working on the other 50 or so-:) I was reading a post over at Building Bigger Barns about the Hackers Diet and I got so excited I read the whole thing in a couple of hours. You can go read it for yourself or wait for me to find  time to tell you about it.

I read my last post and realized that I may have given the impression that all you have to do is say your affirmations over a steaming cauldron and anything you wish for will come true.  Well, not exactly, you see affirmations are just a way to reprogram your brain and remind yourself that you have the power to manifest your heart’s desire in your experience in reality. But…as with anything else, there  will probably always be some action required on your part.

For example, let’s say you need an income – you can ‘t just say “Infinite Spirit I give thanks that the 100k income which is mine by Divine Right has now been released and comes to me quickly under grace and in a perfect way” and spend the rest of the month watching M*A*S*H reruns on TVLand! You have to be the catalyst for change in your life. Nuff said, leave me a comment if you’re confused.

I am grateful for:

  • The awesome Freedom At Home Team & Ameriplan in general where you get love and advice and assistance  from people who don’t benefit financially from your success!
  • My wonderful team – I like to call them my Success Line
  • My family – I appreciate ya even if I don’t have time for you-:)

I haven’t been able to read much this month but Politicus and my girl RE  at Bad Gals Radio are shaking things up   – hop over and see what all the fuss about,  if you have an opinion make sure to leave it with one of them.  My boy Sheen did a hilarious piece on whether or not you should boost your number of Twitter followers artificially.  You should also check out my top commenter Steve who writes some seriously on point stuff for anyone looking to improve themselves on the journey to financial freedom.

Regardless of your political affiliation you need to read this article and learn what really happened with AIG, careful some profanity.

As always thanks to my Entrecard  top droppers for this month, the links are to the right, please visit their sites.
