“A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg

even though he knows that you are slightly cracked”

I have hit that illustrious 100th post.  I actually hit it about 2 days ago, but noticed it today.  Wow, 100 bits of inspiration {cough}…100 bits of revelation {choke}…100 tidbits of wisdom {gasp}.  Along the way I have made lots of new friends, received encouragement, wisdom and lots of laughs!  I want to thank each and every one of you.  Whether you lurk or you post thanks for stopping by. So what illuminating bit of wisdom does the 100th post warrant?  How do I condense the first 100 into a nugget you can take with you?  I can get that down to just one sentence, but it is not original and I believe someone came up with it first:

Just DO it! 

Blog, craft, inspire, daydream, believe, wish, love, laugh…whatever you feel like doing, just do it!  It is never acceptable to say “I won’t,” but to think “how can I?” 

I believe a giveaway is in order, so here goes:

If you post a comment on this thread by the 3rd of December (eek, December already?) and tell me something new that you have either have done or want to do and you are in the drawing. 

You and I will discuss  your likes from all of the items from the vast pool of craftiness that is Cindy is Crafty and one of them will be yours.  Keep in mind that it may not be exactly the same due to fabrics, buttons, etc. 

There you go!  By the time I get to 200, I might rethink this concept.  Hey, I am new and first 100 post giddy right now…take advantage of it!

And lastly, here is a recipe that I made this morning to take to a friend today.  It is a holiday favorite of my friends and I and soon, I hope, yours too!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

1 pkg. 8oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbs. brown sugar
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans (I use walnuts, like in the cookies)
Graham Crackers or Ginger Snaps

Beat softened cream cheese, butter, & vanilla until creamy. Slowly add sugars until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Place mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap and form into a ball. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Roll ball in pecans (or walnuts). Serve with graham crackers (or ginger snaps).

It tastes like chocolate chip cookie dough!

And, Christy, here is your sneak peek of your item for our December swap.
