To my family and friends who were my very first readers, I thank you for humoring me and telling me that you enjoyed what I had to say. To those how came along later and aren’t related to me, I thank you for not running away screaming. To those who leave me comments, thank for making me not to feel like I’m talking to a wall. I talk to myself enough already so I really don’t need any more of that in my life.
And so, as promised, I’m doing a giveaway to celebrate this somewhat momentous occasion. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment (one per person!) on this post, no later than midnight Pacific Time, and you’re entered. The comment can be as simple as “I’d like to be entered in the drawing” or as lengthy as a 3 page essay on why my blog is so important to you. The comments that fall in the latter category will be remembered when I win the lottery. And I’m leaving this giveaway open to my family members, because that’s who I started this blog for, and I also get to make all the rules. There will be only one winner (sorry!) but if this contest goes smoothly I anticipate doing it again someday, so don’t leave me in disgust if you don’t win.
Just what are you entering to win? A few little things that I have picked up here and there for just such an occasion! Let’s start out with the two adorable pink bowls from Pier 1 Imports, perfect for candy or ice cream, or even as a trash can on your craft table. Next up is a handy gift wrap cutter which makes wrapping presents a bit easier. Don’t forget the cute little flower clothes pins, also from Pier 1. If you’re feeling really crafty, you could glue a magnet to the back and use them on the fridge to hold pictures. And the icing on the cake: a fabric fortune cookie handmade by me! It is completely useless, but so cute. I’d like to say this will all arrive beautifully gift wrapped, but I’m not very good at that, so please keep your expectations to everything arriving in one piece. I will announce the winner tomorrow after I use the handy website http://www.random.org/ to pick the winner!
