A Favor

When I starting blogging I was looking for a place to jot down some of my memories. I was pleasantly surprised when people actually started reading and following. It wasn't long before Google wanted to have ads on my blog and I thought sure why not? A few extra pennies never hurt anyone. And I attached their annoying little ad sense gadget.

Six months have passed where I patiently frowned at those ads everyday, and finally this morning I got rid of them. And I'm doing a little happy dance while wondering why I didn't do it sooner.  Now I can have anything in my side bar I choose to. I don't have my own etsy store yet so I can't place a link for that, but I do have a friend who makes the cutest Waldorf dolls that I thought would be a shame not to let all of you know about.

Isn't she precious?
And now I would like to ask a favor from anyone who is interested. I have an aunt that is very dear to me who has/is Downs Syndrome. She is having a birthday on November 5th and I would love to have her mailbox filled with birthday cards. If anyone would like to send a card to her, please e-mail me and I will give you her address.


  1. i would love to send her a birthday card. i have a special needs daughter and so i am blessed to hang out with the best folks on the planet thank you very much!!!!

  2. What a lovely doll! Your friend is so talented. I would be delighted to send your dear aunt a birthday card and have emailed you!

  3. A very small favor in return for some of the best blog reading around, I think.
    Sent the email. :)

  4. I would love to as well! One question. Is she Amish? I am new to this blog but have loved reading. I would love to help if I can. I have a large blog following, and have posted about some Amish Friends/pen pals that I have that live in Ethridge TN. I have shared my letters and many blog friends have been interested in having pen pals with them. Now I don't know if your aunt would write back or not but it would give them the chance to write. I was just wondering. Either way I would love to send a card.

  5. I sent an email requesting your aunt's address.
    Did you get any feedback from Google? I doubt I'd want those ads on my blog either, but I wondered how successful they are.

  6. I would love to send her a card!
    Email me her address.

  7. Adorable doll!

    I'll send her a card. I've got one on hand. dajfamily1 at yahoo dot com.

  8. I'll email you to get her address. My ex brother in law is one of the oldest Downs in Alberta. He is still my favorite relative!!!

  9. that doll is precious, and i would love to send your cousin a doll.

  10. My pleasure and I do NOT blame you for removing those annoying ads. I'm just about to do the same thing myself. I have been blogging for a year and have made exactly $27. Wow. I think I'd pay that to reclaim my blog. When I redecorate, they will go.

    Oh, and I sent you an email. We would LOVE to do this.

  11. Hi...I've been following your blog for awhile and would like to send a birthday card to your aunt. Please email me the address, I think this is a great idea!

  12. I would love to send your Aunt a birthday card!

  13. What a cute doll! I would love to send your aunt a card, I just e-mailed you! :D

    Have a great weekend!

  14. I would be thrilled to send your aunt a card. my e-mail is Send it quickly, as the date is so close, I want to make sure it gets there on time.

  15. Oh I think that's wonderful, that you eliminated adds on your blog. You tried it. You found you didn't like it. You went back to a more peaceful blogging. Good for you!

    And thank you so much, for appreciating the wooden toys, which my husband makes.

  16. Your aunt's so lucky to have you. Great idea about the google ads by the way - what's up with those useless things anyway?? LOVE the doll - she's got that crafty, homemade "feel" to her and yet looks durable enough for little hands. ♥

  17. Some how I missed this post. I'd be happy to send a card, if you would send her address to
    I often wondered if those ads do anything other than clutter the page.
    The doll is adorable.
