Sisterhood Sorority Rush!

I'm joining my good friend Karen, from Some Days are Diamonds for the first ever Sorority Rush Party.
I've had the pleasure of meeting Karen in real life and she is just the neatest lady.  So when your finished here, go visit her blog and check out the other links.

I am not a real paper crafty person but I did manage to make a little hangy thing. And that's what it will be called, the little hangy Sisterhood thing.

 This picture of me is from another blog party that I was recently part of it.  Sheila, from Note Songs, who also has a Sorority Rush post had us take pictures of ourselves looking into a mirror.   I live way up North, in the State of Wisconsin and I am anxious to meet my other blog sorority sisters.

And today, I was lucky enough to meet one of my sorority blogger sisters!   Keetha, whose blog is called
The Eclectic Company and her sister Pam came to visit. Keetha has long been a blogger buddy of mine.  She was born and raised in Wisconsin and now resides in Indiana.  But her heart belongs to the Badger State!
We met for lunch and then Keetha and Pam followed me out to my house.  I so hope they didn't get lost on their way back to Eau Claire, I kind of live in the boonies.   We had such a lovely time visiting.  Keetha and her sister Pam are both warm and sweet and a lot of fun!   I am pretty sure Keetha will have more to share on her blog. 
So as you can see, blogger sisterhood is real!  And this Sorority Party of Karen's is such a lovely idea.
Go Karen!!!
I hope to get to visit you all over the next several days.
Thanks for coming by,


  1. Cindy...your sisterhood hangy thingy is great! You did a wonderful job! Have a great weekend...

  2. Hey CINDY!!! How adorable and precious Karen's idea was to have this get together! I LOVE IT! I just told her I can't believe how popular she's become since the day I met her when she won my drawing ~ which had to be more than a year ago. She is a rockin! I have missed my visits at your place and all my other lovely blogging friends. Since last June, there were some pretty serious family situations going on., and my work was in a huge adjustment phase. I had little time to devote to anything but family and work during those months. My prayer is that I get to come by more often and visit with you all. And hopefully I can post a few times a month just to stay more active in the community of lovely folks! Meeting blog friends are just the BEST! And, hey, I love your little hangy Sisterhood thingie! I think you did GREAT! I'm hoping you get back to GA this year - and if you do...I'm hosting a teaparty in honor of YOU! :) Hugs friend... ~CC Catherine

  3. Hi Cindy,
    I love your bloggerette sorority creation. So sweet. It's great to see your picture too. You are so pretty.
    I'm also glad that you got to meet another blogging sister, what fun.


  4. Hi Cindy, love what you did with the picture. You are as cute as a button!

    Your sister.....
    Hugs, Barb ♥

  5. Aren't you lucky to have bloggy friends nearby!! Good Job on your Rush project!!

  6. Hey, if you live near Eau Claire, like my sister does, you have a wonderful author living in the area, Michael Perry, author of "Truck: A love story." That is a beautiful area. I live in California.

  7. I love your little hangy thing!! I had no idea what to make so I hesitated joining the party...and then I learned I would have to include a picture and it was final that I wasn't joining! BUT, I'm having a blast seeing everything everyone has made!

    I know Keetha slightly. You both look great together! I bet you had a great time!

    You look beautiful in your pictures.


  8. Hi Cindy
    It very nice to meet you and love you cute hanger. pop over , the kettle is boiling tea or coffee??? hugs ~wendy @blissangels

  9. Cindy,

    We drove STRAIGHT back to our hotel with nary one wrong turn!!! We THOUGHT about giving you a little call and saying, "Cindy, we're in California, do you think we took a wrong turn???"

    Thanks so much for a very lovely afternoon.

    I've got my "rush" post set to run just after midnight - - - wanted to give "our" post time to be seen first. I've noticed if you post two things at about the same time, most people only look at the first one.

  10. I love the gems around the photo Great job on your rush photo

  11. That is wonderful that you got to meet a bloggy friend. I have met a few over the years that are now really close friends, albeit we have only met once or twice. Congrats on your upcoming grandbaby - October is a wonderful month to be born ;-) (I should know).
    Have a great day

  12. Love your Bloggerette hangy thing! LOL! Good job Sister!

  13. Glad to meet you sister! And your thingy is cute!

  14. Your little hangy thing is very cute! Fun to meet with Keetha, I like her too! I cannot imagine ever meeting a blogging friend...you think you live in the boonies! Well I do for sure! :D

  15. What a sweet little hanger. How wonderful to get to meet some blogger friends. They are some of the most wonderful ladies ever! Your pictures look stunning!

  16. Hey Cindy! Your "hangy SIsterhood thingy" is so cute! You did good.
    WHOO HOOO!!!! (Has Dan seen you in that outfit?) You go Girl!
    Very fun! And you got to meet Keetha! How fun is that?
    I'm late - gotta keep going!
    Big hugs! Love you! Karen

  17. Hi Cindy! You did a marvelous job on you little hanging. I love your snap - you really are just so pretty! How nice to get to meet a blog friend! She has a gorgeous smile, doesn't she?
    Glad you like my little pillow! Would it be okay if I tell you what I used tomorrow? I'm downstairs in my easy chair all snug and full from dinner! :)
    I promise, I won't forget.
    Be a sweetie Sistah!

  18. Hello there Sista. So glad to meet you! You did a fabulous job on your R*U*S*H project!! I am so excited about our sorority and all the F*U*N we will have!

  19. Hi, what a great take on the photo...love the bling. Can't wait for the other upcoming events! This is really fun. Enjoy the rest of the party.

  20. I also love your little hangy thing, but at first glance I actually thought it was a purse. I thought, omg, these people are going all out, what the heck am I doing in this sorority? They'll kick me out and banish me for sure.

    Very creative and your photos are great, you look so chic in the first one! Wasn't if fun meeting another blogger friends. Seems we were both lucky this week, I did have a great time with Sheila.

    Happy "RUSHing."

  21. Wanted to congratulate you on the upcoming birth of your first grandchild! I am grandmother twice over (boy, 7 and girl, 4)...it's wonderful, even better than being a parent in many ways! Your pictures on your previous post were beautiful! Thanks so much for being a follower on my blog. Hope you will come visit whenever you have time. I'm still learning!

  22. I love it Cindy! The picture of you and your blog sister is too cute! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comment! HUGS!

  23. LOVE your Blogger Sisterhood hangy thingy is darling! :)


  24. Hi Cindy,
    So nice to meet a new sister. Great job on your rush project!

  25. Cindy, your little hangy thing is adorable, and so are you! How fun to meet another blogger. You seem to get to meet bloggers frequently. (I guess that's cause everybody wants to meet you). laurie

  65. Hi Cindy Sweetie...
    So happy to be out and about blogging again. I wanted to pop over and say hi. I did not see Karen's post about the sorority rush so I was not able to make a thingy in time. I did comment on her post though so I can at least be part of the future sisterhood fun. I love the idea.

    Your hangy thingy is just so cute. You keep saying you are not creative but look at the thingys that you come up with. Love it.

    I am so tickled you were able to meet additional bloggers and from your area, how fun. It looks like you all had a fun time. I will go to Keetha's blog and stop by to say hi. I can't wait to see what she posted about the event. How fun.

    When are you making a trip back to Phoenix? Isn't it about time for you to come and see your son again? We need to do a lunch. Hopefully by then the doc will have me released and I can be out and about. It has been so lonely locked indoors. I am not a very good patient, but after spending 8 days in the hospital, I have done everything they have said to do so that I do not have to go back there again. Yuck!!!

    Hope you had a beautiful weekend sweetie. I think of you and smile everytime I look at my pink flamingos sitting on my center island. I love them. Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

  66. How wonderful for you to meet Keetha and her sister, Cindy. Keetha is a lot of fun on her blog and I bet she is even more fun in person...Christine

  67. Good grief are you sure you are old enough to have a grown daughter? I love the outfit you have on in the full length mirror picture, and the paper craft. As for the sorority party what a great idea! Sounds like you are headed for a great deal of fun!

  68. I love your hangy thingy you made with the bling! It is wonderul that you met your blogging friend.

  69. LOL, now we are sisters in blogland! Love your thingy!

  70. Love the thing you did with the picture!! I just joined the Sorority today!

  71. What a sweet little hanging! and yes blogger sisterhood is real. I have met so many wonderful ladies and made real friends who get together now and again.
    Don't you just Love it!

  72. Fun!
    Glad to have the opportunity to stop by and say hello. xx

  73. Hi!
    So glad to stop by and visit another sister! I think you did a lovely job on your picture!

    Can't wait to see what other fun things we will be doing!


I would love to hear from you. Come back and visit anytime. Warmest Wishes, Cindy
