WE HAVE A WINNER! 2017-2018 SoCS Badge Contest

Thank you all for voting. Of course you know this means I’ll be impossible to live with now that I’m an award winning badge maker😂 Channeling my inner Sally Field. You like me, you really really like me. Hehe 🌺🌺🌺

First, I’d like to give a special mention to our out-going Stream of Consciousness Saturday badge by Mr. John Holton. As it turned out, he has the distinct honour of coming in last-place this year, perfectly balancing out his spectacular win for the 2016-2017 badge. Thank you John, for providing us with a lovely design. Let’s everyone applaud John!

Almost tied for fourth place were Ruth’s “Zoomburst Flower” and Scott’s “Rushing Stream.”

In third, we had Judy with her last-minute entry, “Sunrise.”

In second …

was JoAnna’s “Sparkly Stream,” which means our winner with 38% of the votes goes to J-Dubs with “A River with Red Flowers”!!

Congratulations to all the contestants on your amazing efforts. Thank you for…

Quotes of the Day ~ 8/18/17 ~

Taken from Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate

  • Love needs no words.  It does not depend on memories, or mementos or proof.  It runs deep as a heartbeat.  It is ever present as a pulse.
  • People don’t come into our lives by accident.  

Jill aka J-Dub or Jilly Willy or Chili or Spoonie adds:

I believe this with all MY heart ❤  to my family by fate, removing any steps and to my friends who are like family (you know who you are) much love today and always.  Keep on Smiling! 🙂


As always more to come.
