All that being said, it is time to celebrate all of your accomplishments for the majority of July--well as many of you as I can and whose achievements I have come across anyways! If you are new to my blog, this post is based on an idea I had in order to celebrate the successes of all the new people in my life. On the last day of each month (or close to it), I will create a post congratulating all my bloggy friends and acquaintances on their successes, anniversaries, milestones, achievements, etc. Of course, these will be strictly the items that I have come across during the month in my travels to the challenge blogs I have personally entered or are a team member of, or on my visits to personal blogs. There will be many things I'll miss so please don't take offense if you have achieved a success and you don't find your name listed here. I wish I had the time to check everyone and everywhere but I'd need a cloning machine to pull it off and I believe human cloning is still illegal. So for now, if you or someone you know has an achievement and you would like to have it included here, contact me by email before the end of the month or just include the information in the comment section of each 'Congratulatory Considerations' post.
I am aware of the following reasons for sending out congratulations to members within our community. So ladies, bask in the glow of the congratulatory candle. You all deserve the successes you have achieved! These are listed strictly in the order of when I came across them, not necessarily in any chronological order.

As far as my accomplishments for this month...
- I actually managed to win over at Lady Anne's Progressive Christmas Challenge. Some of the sponsors are now offering additional prizes for people who enter both cards and I managed to get chosen. It has been so long since I won anything, I forgot what it felt like.
So the candle burns brightly for all these wonderful ladies along with those of you who have had accomplishments I'm unfamiliar with. Don't forget, if you'd like to see an achievement celebrated here next month, contact me before the 30th of September or just include the details in the comment section of the next 'Congratulatory Considerations' post when it comes out.
Until next time,
P.S. It is possible that I have made mistakes as I gather these throughout the month and unfortunately, I just don't have the time to go back and verify. If you noticed a specific mistake, let me know and I'll fix it up as soon as I can.
