AND the WINNER is...... ANGELA of always B designs !!

Hello! Here is a "Heartfelt Welcome" for stopping by my blog during this WONDERFUL 2010 Summer Blog Tour!!  Let me give a quick THANK YOU to Holly of The Work at Home Woman and Abbey of Living My MoMent for featuring my blog during this really FUN event!!

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Vanessa Walker and I LOVE being a work-at-home-Mom (WAHM)!! I live in the small town of Berwick, Pennsylvania, where I am an Independent Senior Mary Kay Beauty Consultant, and also the Independent Event Coordinator for Pennsylvania Mommy Bag Marketing

I developed my Heartfelt Home Creations blog so that I may share my hobbies and interests with family, friends and fellow bloggers! With everything from my "Recipe of the Week" posts on Mondays to my "Garden Gumption" posts on Fridays; I hope that you may find something fun and interesting to read!

When I'm not being Wife to my wonderful husband, or "Momma" to my awesome son, or helping women fulfill their cosmetic and skin care needs with my Mary Kay business (let me know if you need anything!), you can find me working on one of my many hobbies (cooking, gardening, crafting, and blogging!!).

Also, if you are a Christian Mom with your own business and want to share information about your business with Christian Moms and Christian Families -- OR if you have an upcoming Christian Concert, Mom Group, Retreats, or Church functions, let me know and learn about my Mommy Resource Bags at  !! I'm currently setting up event dates and filling Mommy Resource Bags with fliers, coupons, and business info from fellow Christian Moms and would love to have you included!

Thank You for stopping by my blog! And don't forget to follow the 2010 Summer Blog Tour every day so you can connect with other great blogs and fun giveaways!!
