Another Thank You

It's that time again. I've been delaying, and now I have a bunch of people to thank for items that I've won in giveaways.

First, from Zooguu, I have this adorable stuffed penguin I call Nermal. Nermal became my "mascot" during the recent 24-hour read-a-thon that I was a part of.

Nermal

So cute! This was won through a giveaway on New To This Whole Mommy Thing.

Then, just a week or so later, I won on this same website again. This time I won this lovely little personalized notepad.

Sweet Paper

You'll note that I have censored the pad for my privacy, but isn't it adorable? This notepad comes from Sweet Life Paper. I will definitely use them again for personalized stationery.

I got this awesome cookbook from Olga of Mango & Tomato.

Olga does cooking and beautiful food photography.

From So Many Precious Books, So Little Time I won this intriguing diet book Engine 2.
Engine 2

Evidently it was written by a firefighter, and includes recipes from the firehouse and exercises.

I also won the book Galway Bay, which I was very excited about.I really wanted the opportunity to read this book. However I am for some reason missing the picture that I took of the book. Suffice to say, it looks the same as the image from Barnes and Noble...


It's a long read, so it may be a little while before I get to it, but I look forward to it! This book was on behalf of Bookin' with Bingo.

And, last but by no means least, there was this little lovely gift.
Earring Package

This little lovely came from Beads by Evelyn.

Aren't they cute little earrings? I immediately put them on, and my boyfriend loved them. He thought they were very feminine, which is always a plus for me. I get so little chance these days to express my femininity.

So many great gifts! Thank you so much to Zooguu , Olga of Mango & Tomato, So Many Precious Books, So Little Time, Bookin' With Bingo, Hatchette Books, Sweet Life Paper, New To This Whole Mommy Thing, and Beads by Evelyn.

Thanks so much! You guys are awesome!

Way to go - you've got some great prizes! Thanks for the "thank you", it was a pleasure to make that penguin for you. I love his name, too!

Oh, Nermal has found a happy home indeed.
Your last two gifts are so romantic! The earrings are lovely and the cover art on Galaway Bay makes me want to read it, too!
