The winners and me speaking on video (last post!!!)

Good day all, 
Thank you to everyone that participated and left feedback. I absolutely appreciate it. 
So the winners are:
Runner up winner: Honeydame
and the first place winner is:.....Destiny - Yankeenaijachick + Success(yep you defiantly keep adding to your name...lol)
Please email me Destiny - Yankeenaijachick + Success and  honeydame. My email address is earthichick@gmail.com


I've come to realize that just like TV, I was wasting alot of my time online, sooo i have come to the conclusion that i need to LIVE life, life is too short for me to devote even a quarter of it to being online. If i ever return, it will probably be in terms of audio or video. 
So i leave you all with three vids, the first is a spoken word poem that i wrote myself. The second is a vid i watched today that touched me dearly. The third is a song that i heard in october in a funeral.  


First vid: Chizzy D last words on chizzyd.com plus spoken word
video


Second vid: This brought me to tears


The third vid: In Christ Alone(All other ground is sinking Sand!!!!)




My favorite part was:
In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.
In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.
May we be his and he me ours, Amen!
Love, Chizzy ;D

The time has come to say Goodbye PLUS Giveaways

Good day all, 
For awhile now, i have come to this realization but did not want to accept it. This blog will be ending before the year runs out. As many of you know, my life has changed drastically and because of that I no longer have the time, energy, or even passion for blogging that i used to. I am such a different person since starting this blog. I have grown so much from blogging and reading other people's blog and  I am extremely grateful that God allowed me to connect with some very special people on here. I have never been much of a writer(still hate writing), but i truly love the community and that is what kept me blogging now for over 3 years. I will absolutely miss this community. Once in awhile, i will defiantly check out what is going on in the lives of my favorite bloggers.


3 last things i plan on doing with this blog:
1. Have a giveaway(i promised awhile ago, and i'm sorta kinda a woman of my word).
2. Meet and hang out with the blogger that lives close to me(you know who you are lol.)
3. Blog one last time.


So about the giveaway:  There will be two prices for two different winners.


Prize #1: Brand new red vintage looking dress, size: Medium from lulu.com. Price: $43.00.

Prize #2: $10 gift certificate to Target (why target you say, because i like target better that i like walmart and those two store are everywhere including online.)
I like this gift card cause of the gal's hair...lol.


Warning, this part is a bit selfish, but i'm doing it because i would really like feedback on my blog. Basically i would really appreciate it if you left a comment telling me: "what attracted you to my blog, what kept you coming back to my blog and what you would have liked for me to blog about, why do you think i only have 56 subscribers?" Basically serious feedback of any sort.
So the person that provides the most detailed response to my question(in my opinion) will be the winner and will choose which gift they would like. The person with the second most detailed answer wins the second prize. Please be honest, don't feel like you have to say nice things, just be honest.

If you do not want any of these prizes, i would still appreciate feedback.  I'm doing this because i believe in learning something from every experience.

The contest ends on friday 12/9/2011 at 11:59pm mountain time.



Have a blessed day. Chizzy ;D

A post that I couldn't write without shedding joyful tears!

Hi blogger fam,


I started this blog last november. To read my first real post(clickhere) and see where i am today, all i can do is shout in amazement of my God and how all along he had a VERY PERFECT plan for me, all i had to do was trust in him.
So, last i posted i was planning on moving to Colorado and i had a interview there before my planned moved.  Fast foward to today. I AM in Colorado(it took me three day of travel by car to get here), i have a very cute apartment, a 70 year old lady that I had never met before took me under her wings, hosted me in her home till i found my own place, cooked for me, showed me around, and helped me move into my apartment buying me some food, cleaning and kitchen supplies, and invited me to her church and yoga exercise classes. Oh and let me me not forget the biggest blessing, the EXACT day i planned on moving, the company i interviewed with called me to offer me the job!!!!!!!!


This is something that i have been praying about for over a year now. And blogger fam, out of all the positions i applied or interviewed for, this one IS the best. This position is something that entry level people in my field NEVER get until about ten years of working. Not just that, it's in a state and city that i absolutely desired to live in. HOW AMAZING IS MY GOD!!!!!!!!


I have been reflecting on this last year and how it was soo uncertain and how at times it made me really sad, mad, angry, depressed, grateful, emotional. I feel that God was trying to teach me MANY different things during that period and he was very successful. I, Chizzy D, have no power,  my WORKS have no power. All power belongs to GOD, he is the only one in control, so it only makes sense to surrender to him. 
If you are going through a similar period in life, use the time to seek what God is trying to teach you.  Regardless of the outcome, God is in control and he knows the plans he has for you even if you don't.


Thank you soo much blogger fam for your prayers and encouragement. Please pray that God continues to bring amazing ppl in my life, that i find a great church family, that i'm protected by him at all times, and that i transition properly to a professional job. 

Have a blessed day. Chizzy D

I'm going to Colorado In October

I'll be rocking a similar look for my interview
(locks and all, but no jean jacket)
Good day all,
I wanted to drop by to say that i am planning on moving to Colorado in October sometime. Next month is sooo uncertain. First i am flying to Colorado for a face-to-face interview(i'm not paying a penny for the trip). As much as i hope i get the job, even if i don't, i still plan on moving in October. By the time i quit my current job, i would have raised the certain larger amount of money i truly need to move to Colorado. If i don't move next month, i wouldn't be able to move until spring 2012 because of weather concerns(i'm basically moving to the other part of the country), so ya. As i said so much is uncertain. I have no idea where i will live, if i will be able to find work, and i don't know a single soul in that state, but since Christ is on my side, i'm pushing all my fears unto him. 


Please pray for me blogger fam, this is the biggest decision(besides giving my life to Christ) that i have ever made.  


Have a blessed day. Chizzy D

Update: Exciting things are happening!!

Good day all,
My personal style has drastically changed from SUPER earthy boho to this lol!!
I know its been a looooong while. Thank you to everyone that wrote to me concerned, it made me feel really special :) Alot is basically happening in my life and i have also spent the last two months planning for my next life move.  So i posted awhile ago about wanting to move to Colorado. Well when i posted that i think i had about $25 to my name and no real job, so i got to work planning. I continued to apply for work(online) in that location and have been interviewing with no success since. I created a plan A, plan B, and a plan C and i am totally determined. Basically i need to raise a certain(large) amount of money if i want to move there without a job first. 


What i am currently doing

  • I work around 55 hours doing the week at a job that i absolutely dislike, but i am grateful for it because it is helping me raise the certain(large) amount of money i need in order to move.
  • I started taking my online accessories shop seriously and sales are finally coming in(yay). I have some pretty awesome ideas for things to make and sell on my online store, i just need to create the time to invest in it.
