Swap Goodies From Amy

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to pop in and show off the swap goodies I received from Amy.

Recently we were partners in a swap hosted by Tricia.

Yesterday my goody package arrived.

Here are the wonderful goodies Amy sent me.

A Primitive Place ~Tammy

She sent me a cute framed sampler.

An Americana flag, peg hanger, pillow.

A wax George Washington bust.

Two cute stickers and some dill dip mix.

Thank you again, Amy!!

Oh Yes, and a Big Thank You and Hug to Tricia for hosting the swap.

Also be sure to keep an eye out for Tricia’s post about what is inside the Box!!

It was mailed out this past Monday, so hopefully she will receive it later in the week.

As you may have noticed….

My blog roll still isn't working!!!!

I have tried Everything.

It wont even let me add the blogs in through their URL’s.


I have emailed blogger for help.

But so far, no reply.

If I don't figure this out soon….

I am considering going in and unfollowing everyone, then clicking Follow again.

And let me say, I really don’t want to do it this way!!!

It will take FOREVER!!!

But I can not stand not having my blog roll on my sidebar.

I cant stand not knowing who has recently made a post!!

And missing out on what is going on. :(


You may be able to tell, the whole situation has me sooo mad.

So word of advice….

Don't remove your blog roll completely from your blog sidebar.

Because there is no guarantee you will ever get it back.


One gadget Blogger has added that I do like is the Follow By Email gadget.

This keeps one from missing anyone's posts.

But I don’t believe very many have it on their blog.

I have it up on mine.  It is right under what says, “Never Miss A Post”.

You simply add in your email address and blog posts are emailed to you.

The only other person I know of who has it is, Carol, which I do subscribe to.

So, if any of you have this gadget on your blog, let me know and I will come sign up my email so I wont miss any of your post.

I also want to send a big Thank you out to Lori and Dee!!!

I found out this week that I was the lucky winner of both of their giveaways!!


Thanks so much ladies.

I will be sure to show them off when the goodies arrive.


I want to remind everyone of the swap I am currently hosting.


Oh and one thing you need to know…

We aren’t swapping envelopes. LOL!!

That is just the way we are shipping our goody packages. :)

To read the rules of the swap and hopefully join in on the fun, click HERE.


And one last reminder…

Don’t forget to sign up for my current giveaway!!


So if you haven’t done so already…

Click HERE to pop right over to the actual giveaway post.

All entries must be made on that blog post.

Sorry, but it is too hard to keep track of them any other way.


As some of you may know, Brett started his 2 week vacation Saturday.

So, he has been pretty much monopolizing my time.

He is like a crazy man, trying to get all these half done projects finished.

I know I will be glad when they are done, but….

He is driving me a little NuTs right now!! LOL!!

He doesn't realize I have a system….

Work a little…. check my blogs a little…..

work a little…. sew a little… work a little…. check my blogs again…. etc.

The darn man expects me to actually finish something before starting something else!!


He’s messing up my routine and doesn't even care!! :) LOL!

So, I will be trying to sneak away as often as I can, but here lately he has been keeping us busy from the time we get up till the time we go to bed.

This vacation of his, is wearing me out! ;)


Well, I guess I better get back to it!!

Until Next Time…

Take Care and Blessing to you All!!

Talk Soon,

Your home is just exquisite.I know what you mean about hubby. My sweetheart works from home, he's just across the breezeway to the workshop. We are together almost 24/7. Be glad for vacations, they always come to an end!
Warm Regards,

Sweet little goodies from Amy - love the Americana stuff! And lucky you on the giveaway wins! You're on a roll! Sorry 'bout your blogger issues - and I hesitate to give advice to someone who is 100x more blog-saavy than me - but, if the whole issue centers around seeing new posts from blogs you follow, have you thought about just using your blog reading list on your dashboard? (I'm sure you have!!) That's what I do - and freaked out last week when it disappeared and said I wasn't following any blogs. I, too, tried to get help from Blogger Help, but nothing. What worked was going into a blog I follow (I just went to my profile, b/c they were still listed there); copied the blog url; then went back to dashboard and under "Reading List," clicked on the "Add" button and pasted the blog url in. It then asked if I wanted to follow that blog, and I said yes, etc. and it then appeared in my reading list. Then I clicked on "All Blog Updates" (which hadn't worked when they disappeared) and all my followed blogs and their new posts reappeared. I've actually had to do this a couple times since then, but I've always managed to get them back. Sorry for the length of this - especially if you already know all this, but just in case....Smiles and Best of Luck ~ Robin

Love your gifts! What a lovely swap. Blogger does take away your dashboard & followers occasionally, but they usually return within a few hours to a few days. Don't count on blogger responding to any questions ... they don't.

Have a lovely week ~

5 Day GIVEAWAY, take a peek

Hi Robin,
Thanks so much for the help.
None of them are showing up on my dashboard.
It says I'm nor following any blogs.
But when I click on manage they all come up on that page.
Here's something else crazy...
But in my google reader only 65 of them are showing up.
The same 65 that are there everytime I try to add my blog list back. But not the other 400+
I don't understand why these 65 are showing up but not the others.
I just went on a few of the ones I follow, clicked unfollow, then clicked to Follow again.
As of a few minutes ago, they still weren't showing up.
But I thought u would give google 30 minutes or so, time to reset itself, then go back and see if they are in there.
If they are, then I guess that is what I am going to have to do on all of them.
Did I mention this is making me so mad.;(
Thanks for the help though.
I do really appreciate it,

Wow! Wonderful swap!

BumbleBeeLane said...

Glad you liked everything sweetie! My blogger said 300 blogs are the limit last week and wouldn't let me add unless I deleted.Maybe since you have 400 that's the issue.Hopefully it works out.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Screaming Sardine said...

Lovely goodies you got in your swap! And you sent some lovely ones as well. :)

Good luck with surviving Brett's vacation - lol!

I have the follow by email widget under my followers widget. I've had that there for awhile, and I definitely appreciate when someone has it on their blog, as I follow so many blogs now and prefer to see something in an email so I don't miss anything.


Jessica said...

I got tired of finding no blogs in my dashboard so I switched to Google Reader. My followed blogs from Blogger were already there when I started using it! Just a suggestion, I see tons of people having the same problem with the followed blogs. I don't know why Blogger doesn't work on these terrible glitches. :(

Earlene said...

Tammy I use my reading list and it works for me.
You made me laugh talking about hubbies vacation.

What great goodies Amy sent you. I love getting packages and giving them when I can.

Men can drive you crazy. Enjoy every crazy minute. I'd do anything to be driven crazy by Ray.

Great goodies on your swaps& congrats on your winning the giveaways! Maybe you could give Brett the remote and a bowl of ice cream and it will keep him blissfully out of your schedule for a little while LOL!! If only my hubby had that kind (or any) of motivation...to get things done, did I say that out loud?? Thanks for the email about my blog, I'll be getting back to you soon...you're the best!! ~Kriss~

Love the flag pillow, really neat stuff. I have that same schedule, work a little, blog a little, etc. My husband has been messing up my routine since he left his winter job for his summer one, we have a lawn care business. I get to have him around until next september, not loving it, I like my routine, he is kinda slow in getting out in the morning and we are not getting anything accomplished around here either. Hope you get your blog roll back, I playing catch up on reading blogs since my grandson decided to come 3 months early. Take care. Vicky
