Hi my dear friends! Today’s PRACTICALLY SPEAKING is all about doing a little StoneGable housekeeping. Telling you a little “this and that”, making you aware of some new things you will find when you visit StoneGable and a little “heart-to-heart”. I have lots and lots going on with the blog and behind the scenes too… and I’m using today to bring you up to speed. Let’s get started!
First and foremost I want you to know that YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!! And I love each and every one of you! Thank you for being the most outstanding community of best-friends-I-have-never-met and feeling like family to me! Just know that I strive every single day to bring you the best content, the prettiest pictures, and the best written (and you know what a horrid speller and proofreader I am) posts I can.
I get up every morning and thank God for each of you! And I pinch myself because I just can’t believe that I get to do this (blogging) again today!
It’s been my dream, for awhile, to have our community be able to not just comment on each post (although I love every comment) but to also share tips and encourage one another and tell our stories in the comment section of each post. I want you to feel free to express yourself too! So if I am posting about lampshades, for example, I would love you to chime in! Tell me about your great lampshade, where we can find fabulous lampshades on sale, or how you painted one. Ask a question or a give us a great tip about how to clean them, etc! Just keep it positive and kind.
To encourage you to share and let you know how much I love you I am hosting a READER APPRECIATION GIVEAWAY each month.
When you comment in any way on StoneGable blog you will be automatically entered in the giveaway. You can enter as much as you want. The more comments you leave, the more you will be entered. I REALLY WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! This is to all those readers who think you don’t have anything to say…. YES YOU DO!
I will announce the winner on Facebook the first of each month and then on StoneGable blog the next day along with the new month’s giveaway! I have some pretty sweet giveaways lined up for you! It’s my way of saying THANK YOU!!!!
Now, let’s talk about the Newsletter! Did you know that you can receive a daily StoneGable newsletter to your inbox every morning? I create it myself! Here’s a look at what you will find if you sign up for my daily newsletter…

So far, we have talked about the StoneGable’s Reader Appreciation MONTHLY Giveaway and the StoneGable Newsletter and now I want to talk about …
Did you know that the number one question I get asked is, “WHERE DID YOU GET THAT”? So many of my readers have asked me to includes links to the products that I use in my home and have on the blog.
So… you asked and I listened! I am so thrilled to be able to link StoneGable style products now. This gives you, my amazing readers, the opportunity to view my favorite things and even purchase them if you choose.
So many of you have emailed me to thank me for this addition… you are so welcome!
And lastly, I have some new and exciting things coming to StoneGable this fall and into the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons! Fun ways to interact as a community and more ways to win some very exciting things!
As always, I work on making StoneGable your go-to source for all things HOME!!!
