555th GIVE-A-WAY

Here it is guys - as promised. The give-a-way for AGD's 555th post. This is a chocolate brown colored cross on top of a cream and chocolate brown canvas. It is 12 x 12 in size. What a beautimous home decor item. It would make the perfect give for someone at Christmas as well. This was an item I purchased off of etsy for this give-a-way specifically. I wanted to give away something that was a refection of AGD's style. I figured that crosses and zebra print pretty much sum us up here at AGD.
So how do you play to win?
Well friends, you do the same thing you are doing with the give-a-way in the post below this one...you leave a comment here on the blog with your name and why you love the AGD blog. Should you want to earn extra chances at winning, then feel free to post this give-a-way on your own blog and link back to us. If you do, we'll give you another 5 chances on top of the one you earn for commenting in the first place. That totals 6 opportunities to win this beauty. Please make sure to comment and let me know that you added the give-a-way to your own blog as well. Also, you DO NOT need a blog to participate. You can play if you are a AGD blog reader/AGD blog visitor, or an actual blogger. Any of those qualify for participation.
In the meantime, please know how much I appreciate you and your friendships. It is because of each of you that I've been able to reach the 555th post. What do you say we shoot for another 555? Sound like a plan? Hope so!
Much love, gratitude, & appreciation...
Angie
PS...It has been brought to my attention that I am STILL having email issues as late as this morning. I am not getting emails from people as normal. I've also had emails show up in my inbox that were back all the way from before Thanksgiving. If you have sent me an email and I haven't replied within 3-4 days of you sending it, then I probably have not received it. I apologize. Talk about complete and utter frustration at this point. Some have forwarded me emails showing emails that were kicked back in error for no reason. I'm clueless and have no idea why it is happening. I'm praying that the problem gets fixed soon. My sanity is dwindling. Ha ha!

Angie, I'm not posting because the "giveaway", but just to tell you how much I've enjoyed your blogs. I've laughed so many times I've lost count. Thanks for allowing "strangers" into your blogging life. What a fun ride!

Angie is always SO positive...we all can learn a lot from her... whether it's rallying together for Bailey or dodging traffic tickets...I'm always laughing when this blog ends!
Thanks!!!
Happy 555th!

Anyway,your blog is one of the first I check daily. I look to your blog to make me laugh. Inspire me. Push me in my faith, and so much more. You are such an inspiration to mothers and wives Angie. I have told you before how much of an impact you have had on my walk with Christ. Every day you continue to touch people with your word. Keep it up Angie.

Hey Angie!

Why I read the AGD blog . . . .

It all started in March of this year . . . when thru the grapevine you heard about Paytons pending surgery. From hundreds of miles away, you offered support and prayer not only personally but via your AGD readers.

Through other chains of events, you have offered personal advise to me and my family. I could have searched the world over and not found such parrells! You were completely honest and unguarded-which I really, really appreciate.

I read for the christian inspiration, the laughs and the true sense of love for all. (even the haters!!)

Keep on writing and we will keep on reading and being inspired to be better wives, mothers and friends!

Much love to you and your family this holiday season,

Kathy in TN (soon to be a fellow Hoosier!)

I read your blog because it lifts me to a level that is beyond words. you know my story and my heartache that I live with daily...some days you really just help me make it through and I am thankful for that. I love you girl and I wish you nothing but the best in all of your endeavors. Happy Holidays!

I get to see how you have grown into such a beautiful christian woman. I get to see you going through all the motherly situations that I did, and the joy that children bring. I see kenidi growing up to look like her mommy and brennen growing to look just like his daddy. I love to hear others telling you how much they love you and how much you inspire them. Most of all I love how you tell everyone about your faith in God! You are truly awesome sweetie, Mommy loves you!

I used to check your ebay stuff all the time about two or three or maybe even four years ago. I loved your style and always dreamed of purchasing one of your amazing designs. I quit ebaying as much and had not thought about you in a long time when one day I ran across your blog on Carissa's blog. It was such a small world. So now I check you blog regularly and love your style, humor, playfulness, pictures, clothes, home.... well you get the picture. You are such a great person. You do a great job of uplifting. You are so talented. I am usually not one to post a comment on a complete strangers blog but, the chocolate zebra print was too much for me to pass up! :)Plus it was a great opportunity to let you know how truely great I think you are! Hope you have a great evening!

Hi Angie, okay so i am not going to tell a lie, of course i would absolutely LOVE to win this beautiful cross. Hee hee. Who wouldn't? But i also wanted to tell you that you are a fabulous inspiration to me. My husband and kids even know you:) Okay so i am kinda a blog stalker:) When i have had bad days, which we all do, i read your blog, somehow the mishaps (like when you got caught by the lady at her house) and your christianity always bring a smile to my face and to my heart. You are such a giving person and you never let anyone get you down. You handle all things in such a professional yet fun way. I hope to be like that one day. I have my moments. I love that you love God with your whole heart and are not afraid to share that! Thanks so much for just being you and letting everyone in on your life! If you want to fold my "comment" a certain way, i will not tell anyone:)

I don’t know for sure if this is the place I leave a comment, but here goes. I have been reading only and I am not a blogger, but I just love keeping up with everything you do so interesting and love when you give us other sites to look at with some of the things you have purchased.

Just recently I got the hinged letters for all my granddaughters because they were so cute. I have done a room just for my granddaughters and I got them for my room. I look forward everyday to your blog, but when you changed your format recently the pictures are blocked at my work so I have to look at the pictures when I get home. You have made me very inquisitive about photography lately and would like to get a new camera (I don’t want to go as far as you have) but I want to be able to take pictures of all my grandkids which is 8 at this time. 4 boys and 4 girls.

Thanks for putting sunshine in sometimes a very boring day at work.

I love the AGD blog b/c I love looking at all the "fabulous finds" you come across. And...our children are the exact same ages, so things you are doing in your life parallel ours. And....my dear husband was diagnosed with epilepsy 3 yrs. ago and you were understanding/posting about those types of things. etc.,etc., etc. And...your faith and standing up for the right (sometimes unpopular) thing is admirable. All of these things and more make this blog one of my favorites!!!!

Anyways, I am new to blogging, but I check yours daily. It's so fun, uplifting, and positive.

Why do I love AGD? Well, that's hard- I have almost all of your necklaces and can't walk 5 feet without getting a compliment. I love how you love your family, flaws and all. I love how you fight for your child and never want her to know that she is any different than any other precious child on the school bus. Most of all- I respect the woman behind AGD- how you run your business, take time for your family, the causes you choose to support and your morals. Early on in our friendship, we had a slight misunderstanding. We worked it out and you have never said another word about it- you continue to help me out when I need a special gift, or a rush favor, or need someone to listen to how frustrated I am with my own medical situation. That is the definition of integrity- and that's AGD! Love ya' girlie! Congrats on 555!

The reason i love the blog and you as a person is because your are truly One-of-a-Kind!!!!!When you were given the name "Angela,ie,you were given it for a reason.You are truly an Angel.An angelic person from up above....
When I bought sets from you from ebay for my daughters a few years back I never thought i would still be in touch with you, but you are such a pleasing person to deal with anyone would be out of there mind not too! You go outta your way to make sure that everyone and I mean everyone especially children whether your special needs,or have black hair for instance we are all "ONE" no one is better or different than the other...And what you did for little sweet Bailee was amazing ..You are such an inspiration. I don't drink coffee i know call me crazy but it's true, but you are my caffeine in the morning.I respect you with all my heart for what you did....You always step up to the plate and for that my friend whenever you need anything i will be here for you even though i never personally met you.Even though we have spoken through phone it would of been nice to meet one day....

Hi Angie,

Let me see, I have never introduced myself before. I think now is a good time. I have been a lurker since we both were posters on the June 2003 Baby Center. There is where you posted a link to your family website. I can't believe it has been over 5 years!

Why I have been a faithful follower for so long? I love your passion for life, your humor and honesty. You remind me what is important and have helped me deal with and help me through some tough times, I have seen you do the same. My middle daughter has sensory integration issues, which has challenged me as a parent!

You are an incredibly strong caring woman, and I also love your style! It is very similar to mine.

Anyway, I am out finally!
Thank you for allowing me to peak into your life!

Merry Christmas!

Jennifer

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit! I love meeting new readers...and loved looking through both of your blogs! I have to admit, I'm a bit jealous of the photography!!! I loooooove photography and just recently decided to make it a little hobby (nothing professional...just want to take really good shots of my kiddies)! Needless to say, I still have a lot of work to do!

Thanks again for stopping in...I'll be back to visit!

I love your blog because it's uplifting and positive and filled with great stories and awesome pictures. Brennen and Kenidi also remind me of my youngest son and my daughter.....and my daughter (she's 3) loves to see pictures of Kenidi.

Wow 555 blogs ? That's a part-time job keeping up with it.

What's Santa bringing Brennen and Kenidi for Christmas? o.k. more like what are they asking Santa for ? Kenidi is really turning into a lovely little lady and Brennen the handsome big brother. Hopefully, I'll get to see them/you soon maybe we can plan something for after you return from your trip. LYFA

Angie~ Lovin me some of the precious zebra with the cross!!! I love the AGD blog for so many reasons as does everyone else! To be really honest I love seeing the cute gifts and summer trips you take with your family and friends, the sports clothing designs, gorgous new house and stuff AGD has to show. It is like pure eye candy for me when I read your blog. I love to drool over Kendies clothes and precious smile. You have a beautiful family and I love how you love our Lord. Congrats on the 555th and what a great idea.

Im off to add this to my blog!

Angie your blog is awesome!!! I love that I have found another person who has a special needs child as well and knows the struggles that we go through. I love that you are not afraid to confess your faith. I love that you have inspired me to go plundering through my old high school box and get my camera out and just start shooting pics again. Thank you for always uplifting my days and making me laugh on my worst days and for always being TRUE to yourself.

First of all, thanks for the comment the other day! Do you think the cross would go with the zebra in my christmas tree?? What Etsy shop did you buy it from?

Oh...& I love the pic of the family with the reindeer! Made me laugh! Hope you have a great day & weekend with the families!!

Hey there Girlie
Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in...

Love your spin on things, i think you have a way of wording things, that truly crack people up!! I will never forget the "update on Sydnee" i was rolling over in hysterics!! I saw myself in you, in the same position!! So i would have to say your spin, really puts a smile on my face, and i have definately learned to make the best of it!!

MOST OF ALL....i twas my first real contact to you in regards to god. I have always said i belaieved in God, but after following your blog, learning how much you love God and follow in your faith, really made me take a close look at myself and my life and my wants for my children to really KNOW God, unlike i did as a kid. When i asked you all the questions, you were Awesome, so true, so inspiring, and really a friend to me, when i reached out for you.

You are an amazing woman, i am still learning, daily i make mistakes, but i try to live a more Christ like life, and you set a great example for all women.

Meeting you was great, and you are a Real, Normal, Regular woman, no painted pictures, just real, that is what i admire most about you.

Chase those penguins, it is definately cold enough there for that!! haha

HUGS XO
