Bushel of Fun from Keli Gwyn

Here's a little peek into the Bushel of Fun I received from Author Keli Gwyn this week! I've already started using the lavender soap and the lovely aroma greets me every time I walk into my bathroom. My six year old said: "Mmmm, what is that pretty smell?" Keli, your gift keeps on giving! Thank you.

I shared this on Facebook, but I'll share it again: I'm now registered for the ACFW Conference in Dallas! I'm so thrilled to have this opportunity and I'm counting down the days until I can meet all of you face to face. I'm praying for the conference and our time together!

What about you? Have you won anything lately? What are you praying for?

  1. Gabrielle, I was so excited when I went to Rafflecopter to get the winner's name and saw that they chose you. I'm glad you like the goodies.

  2. Thanks, again, Keli! It was a fun treat and another way to share my writing blessings with my family. The girls have been begging me to open the lemon drops and peppermint sticks and my six year old loves the lavender soap! I almost had to wrestle your book out of my mom's hands - I promised her I'd pass it along when I'm done reading it. :)

  3. I won the final Bushel of Fun from Keli :) Can't wait to try that lavendar soap you're talking about!
    I'm a new follower of your blog and I "liked" your FB page.

  4. Ooh, yay for winning things. Just this week I won a book from a blog. And last week, I had a major personal "win." Still celebrating.

    I'm sooo excited you'll be at ACFW!!!

  5. Ooooo, I am going to the awards ceremony, so I will seek you out! Yay! And don't look at me weird if I sniff you to see if you are smelling really nice!!!!! lol

  6. Yay that you'll be at ACFW, roomie! ;) We're gonna have a blast and take the conference by storm. Ye-ah!

    I'm praying the conference goes well, especially pitch sessions, but more importantly, that that would not be my only measure of whether it's successful or not.

  7. Anne, welcome to my blog and congrats on the final Bushel of Fun! You'll love it.

    Melissa, I'm anxiously awaiting to hear what your personal "win" is!! Can't wait to see you in person in Dallas!

    Sherrinda! I'll be looking for you, too! And now I'll know why you're sniffing me. You could disguise it with a welcomed hug. :)

    Lindsay, a.k.a. roomie! I'm so happy we'll be experiencing our first conference together! I'll be praying for your pitching sessions. Ahh!

  8. Gabrielle, how fun! How wonderful to finally put a voice to your beautiful face. I hear the Minnesota coming out, and it's delightful. How nice of you to share what you won from Keli. I can't wait to see you in September in Dallas!

  9. Hey Gabe, I am so happy for you! Hope you have a blast!

  10. oh love-ly!
    Gabrielle AND the gift!
