Dance and Dream 4 Ever, featured ocean dreamer of Jan!

Happy Sunday Ocean Dreamers!

A few posts ago I mentioned that I decided
to feature an Ocean Dreamer per month by hosting
a button on the left side of my blog as a free
sponsorship for causes, organizations, your blog,
Etsy business, etc.

Well, I also decided to do an interview
on my featured Ocean Dreamer each month as well
to get the word out on their cause!

I am excited to introduce to you Joanna 
Tell me about your blog, Dance and Dream 4 Ever. What can readers expect to read about on your blog? What are some of your interests and joys in life?

Let me first start with this, a lot of bloggers start with a blog that has a topic, like cooking, crafts, whatever! Me, well, I've  been blogging for a year and my blog is NOT one that has a topic. :) When you stop by you can mostly find the ramblings of a small town Oklahoma girl! I love to talk about my life, its joys and sorrows. My friends, family, and random people (I write letters to famous people telling them how I feel!) I also like to post about my animals, random topics, do link ups, and LOVE giveaways! I am a BIG fan of new followers and I always follow back! Feel free to stop by and stay :)

You are currently running a fundraiser called Secret's Gift Fundraiser. Please tell us about it and how we can become involved!
 A friend in Washington State rescued a dear horse named Secret from a very bad situation! She had major injuries on her legs because of not being cared for. She lived with my friend for about 4 weeks and was starting to look a lot better! She was putting on weight and everything. Sadly in November her injures to her leg got so bad that she had to be put down. She had 4 weeks of rest and peace. 
This fundraiser is in memory of her! I have several amazing people that have donated some fun stuff! Everything from gift tags, to earrings, to hair bows! 
I am asking $10 per entry (you can enter as many times as you want) and all the money will go to The Apache Horse Junction in Arizona! They help abused and neglected horses! Since that's what Secrets is; I feel that's where the gifts should go!
{Side note from me: I asked Joanna if she could prolong the entries beyond the 24th and she said she would be happy to do so if you need more time to hop on over to donate!}

There are several ways you can get involved! At this time, we have had $15 donated! I am so very thankful for that! I would love to be able to write a nice check to this amazing place that is doing such a great thing! So I need people to donate.

Also, I am a small blog! I really need to get the word out there! I have a blog button over on my blog, and you are welcome to copy my post and do a blog post yourself on it!
Anything would be most amazing!

If you had one Ocean Dream {aka a dream in general} that you wish could come true right now, what would it be? How can you effectively put into action a goal from your ocean dream so it will come true?

Ohh...that's a tricky one. 
1. Let's see...As of right now I am single, and I would love to be married, that is my dream. I think the ways I can make that happen are getting better at working in my own home with my family. Also, learning how to clean and so much more!
2. learn how to communicate so I can have some foundation for when I am married and in addition;
3. change my attitude. I'm a little me centered, I need to be others centered!
Thanks so much for your openness Joanna
She's such a sweetheart, please stop by
her blog and say hello or give to 
her cause if you are able to!
I'm looking forward to featuring the lovely 
Shelbi, aka Marigold in Feb.
If you are interested in being the next Ocean Dreamer
for the month of March or a month after please
contact me at oceandreams4sierra@gmail.com!
 Thank you. :)

I'll be back on Monday or Tuesday 
with my Disneyland post.


  1. What an awesome feature! Joanna sounds like an awesome lady! As an animal lover, my heart goes out to her efforts to raise money for the horse foundation. Off to check her and that out now :)

  2. Loved the feature! Best of luck to Joanna! :0)

  3. Sounds like a good one! I'm off to pay her a visit.

  4. Thanks for the great write up! You make me sound amazing! HAHA!

  5. This is such an awesome feature! I love reading about people stepping up and doing something for a great cause! Heading to visit her now!

  6. Very cool... I love that you are having a different Ocean Dreamer every month! You are so clever. Hope you are doing well, girl!!

  7. I am ashamed to say that I cannot dance and dream forever because I get too tired and have to stop and sit down to catch my breath. We have a number of people living near us who rescue horses and with the economy in the toilet there have been more starving horses than usual. It's a sad thing to see when they bring them in, the horrible shape they're in, but it's good to know that there are people who are willing to take them in and help them recover.

  8. I am such an animal lover, so I'm thrilled to see this lovely post by the darling Joanna! What a sweetheart :)
    Can't wait to hear your Disneyland post, girl! I hope you had an absolutely amazing time.

  9. She is adorable and sounds so fabulous! Great feature. :)


Thanks for the comment love! Candy sends you and puppy hello (aka barky bark)!
