Give Away!


I love the New Year.  The idea of starting fresh just sits well with me.  Ok, I know it's all in my head, but I like it anyway.  Maybe this is the year that all my resolutions will turn into lifelong habits.  Daily exercise?  Check!  Organization?  Check!  Finish up all projects before starting a new one?  Check!

A girl can dream, right??!!


So now to the fun part!  I've had a giveaway planned in my mind for weeks and here it finally is.  There will actually be two giveaways;

Giveaway #1:  Leave a comment on this post to be entered.  I'll pick one winner randomly.

Giveaway #2:  I really appreciate everyone who leaves comments on my blog, so this one is a little thank you.  I'm gonna go back through the comments on this blog, all the way to the beginning and include every comment.  I'll pick two winners randomly from all these comments.


Next:  Prizes!

I have five different prizes to be won, and each winner gets to choose two!


Set of four fat quarters


Bliss charm pack


Pin cushion


Set of four fat quarters


                                                          another pin cushion.

Now, there's only one charm pack, and one of each of the pin cushions, but there's a few of the fat quarter sets, so here's how it will be.  The first and second winners from GiveAway #2 (the one with comments from past posts) will get first choice on which prize they want, then the winner from GiveAway #1 (comments on this post)  will get what's left!

I'll leave this open till Friday, January 7.  But I'm gonna go find the winners from the previous comments right now.  (so if you were thinking of being sneaky and commenting on every past post, don't waste your time!:)

and I'll announce all three winners on Friday!!  So leave me a comment, and you may win two of these smallish prizes.  (but don't grump, cause they're free!)

  18. Here is my "random" comment for today:

    There are three potatoes sitting in a room. How do you know which one is the prostitute?

    It's wearing a sticker that reads, I-Da-Ho!

    Perhaps my New Year's Resolution should be to stick with my day job?
