Winter Contest

I found an old, old project that had not been finished. It needed only one final step to complete. I believe it's been waiting on this final step for at least 5 years, and has been through at least one move.

Anyhow, I have completed this project. Leave a comment for me (even just saying "hi") and on, oh, let's say Wednesday morning... 8 a.m. Central Time, I'll randomly pick 5 people. If your name is chosen, I'll tell you where to email me your address, and I will send you an early Christmas gift.

I'm warning you, it is not a big deal, so don't be all "Pfffft" when you get it. It is, however, hand made by me. :) I won't tell you what they are, but I will tell you that no 2 are exactly alike.

Happy Contesting, and thanks for reading!

Wow! A blog give-away! You must be getting serious! I always enter SouleMama's give-aways, but don't win! She is having one right now, actually. Have you ever checked out her blog...she is inhuman I think. No Mama can do all she seems to do! :)

Oh, what fun. I did a music survey today and if you were there 15 minutes early your name was entered in a drawing for 50 dollars. I didn't win, but I was on time! Maybe I'll get lucky this week.
Thanks for sharing your life with voyeurs like myself.

Well I admit that I have NO problem resorting to begging! I know you said it would be random, but please, please, please, I want it, I want it. I LOVE things that are individual, original, and 'no two alike'. I consider myself an individual, an original~~so it would be a perfect match! Please please please . . . . . .
okay I'll stop now, I'm probably starting to sound like your children; I know I sound like MY children. I apologize for making a fool of myself, but hey dude, it sounds so cool! :)

Hi There,
I'm a 1st time commenter, but a long-time faithful blog reader. Must admit I was lured in by the prospect of being a "winner". Really enjoyed meeting the kids at the church shower. It's obvious that all 4 of you have "come a long way!" Keep up the good work. I check your website almost every day and am always disappointed when you haven't had time to journal. It makes my day complete to read about your day.

I for one would very much cherish a Garnder original!! :-) pick me!

I have a quilt that been sitting around for...um...like four years. I'll finish it...someday.

Take care!

Christine said...

Chris M (Apryl's friend) again. I have cut down on the number of times of day that I check your blog for updates since Lee started counting hits - aiming for 'interested' instead of 'stalkerish'. :o) I would LOVE an example of your handywork since my craft skills consist of poorly drawn stick figures. And I LOVE the plaster Ethiopian warrier pic! Maybe I should start to tackle home repair that way! LOL

Sue said...

Does anyone think Chris will notice if I make two entries, and vastly increase my chances of winning a fabulous prize??!!

Good day Gardners. . . sorry, I had to read all the comments before I entered my own wish to earn your "prize". . .I'm hoping it's one of those potholders you mentioned a couple of blogs ago, but I don't think those are 4 years old. :o) Sounds like things continue to be interesting around your place. Know I think of y'all often, and check your blog at least once a day! Love Ya's!
