Wonderful BLENDS [meaning Blogger Friends]

BLENDS means Blogger Friends. I have been extremely lucky to have so many BLENDS ! I am borrowing this wonderful term from my dearest BLEND Jessica who is having a grand blogversary celebration with lots and lots of prizes to win! I am part of her blogversary blog hop which is tomorrow Jan 22nd.
In this BLENDS post I am sharing some of the amazing things my Blends have sent me recently. It never ceases to amaze me how generous blogger pals are with their time, words and gifts!
I became friends with Lisa Jane through MIM and just for fun participated in her Blog Candy-- Most people give away a prize to one or two winners-- Lisa sent gifts to all her friends who participated!! How utterly crazy and sweet is that!
Gifts from Lisa
One day imagine my utter amazement when I opened a parcel and saw a Fiskars border punch from Priya Sivaraj -- I thought she must be really crazy!!! Thank You Priya you are one crazily generous BLEND!

Gift from Priya Sivaraj
I got this beautiful elegant card from Lucy-- it was such a pleasant surprise..Thank You Lucy.

All the goodies below are from Romina who never ceases to amaze me with her generosity...the card in white is a stunner!! 
Gifts from Romina
This gorgeous card and super cute bookmark are from a BLEND who has a very special place in my heart because she flatters me so much!! And literally links to me in most of her blog posts!Thank You so much Bhawana you are a darling!

Blogger pals are generous in so many other  ways too.

I want to thank Jani of  http://papercompulsions.blogspot.com/ where she shares so many gorgeous  flower tutorials. Jani has helped me on so many occasions.. she has mailed me templates of her 3 D papercraft projects, and helped me with software to make templates..Thank You so much Jani.

Deepthi is an extremely multi-talented crafter who quills paints and dabbles in so many crafts and I was so touched when she included this blog in her 2011 inspirational blogs list.. I am so honored Thank You Deepthi.

Little things touch our hearts too.. My BLEND Pritesh makes awesome quilling tutorials but I think I must have cribbed about videos [I cant sit through a You tube video!] and can you imagine she posted photos of her quilling box tutorial just for me!! How crazily sweet is that!

Also I want to thank Kalindi for being so sweet and thoughtful! Kalindi had a blog candy contest and my  little one 's snowman couple won.Kalindi had already a big list of candy and  I was so touched when Kalindi wrote to me asking what my 5 year old liked as she wanted to make my daughters win special !! I was so touched I could cry--Love you Kalindi

When I started blogging I never imagined I would interact with and make so many Blogger Friends [BLENDs]!Thank You so much dear friends Thank You so much for always dropping by and taking the time to leave so many encouraging and sweet words .

My 14 year old daughter and I have curled up together on the sofa a few times lately, looking at your instructions for recycled projects. Here's a toast to 'Blends!'... I raised my cup of tea up high just then, I really did! Anna xx
