Bloggers Luncheon

Kelly from I Have A Notion held a giveaway last week where she asked her readers to identify the owner of the sweatshirts that her two adorable boys were wearing in a photo that she had posted. I correctly guessed that they were wearing the shirts of a mutual friend of ours, Mary Jane. When Kelly emailed me to let me know that I had won the giveaway she asked for my mailing address, but also mentioned that she may deliver my prize in person as she and her family would be in Pennsylvania on vacation this week. Yesterday Kelly, Anya, Mary Jane (blogless), Eleanor (also blogless) and I all had lunch together. What a treat it was to meet a blogging friend from far away in person. I must say that Kelly is every bit as delightful in person as she is in blogland and look at my prize of wonderful bag tags that she brought along! (If you would like to make bag tags of your own you can find Kelly's tutorial HERE.) Kelly also passed these gently used pattern books on to me...thanks so much for everything, Kelly! Also many thanks to Mary Jane for organizing our lunch date and picking up the tab besides. It was a wonderful afternoon...it just didn't last long enough!

I also want to remind everyone that Kelly's week long vacation giveaway is continuing through the week, so be sure to stop by I Have A Notion and enter for a chance to win some great prizes!
