(that’s “I Love a Cool Giveaway”) get it??
Okay so here it is the BIG 200th post!! I think it took me awhile to get here…longer than 2 years I know…Is there a standard for this sort of thing? I dunno about that, but I do know that in Blogland, the 200th post signifies a big party and giveaway!!
First the “party”…I thought I would just share some quick pix of our home at Christmas time…this year without an indoor cat…which to us is a very good thing. There are a lot of pictures, so I am posting them in a smaller format…if you want a closer look you can just click on the photo for a better look…
Here’s a quick gift wrapping or giving idea that is sorta “green” I have had some projects where I took the quilting out past where it needed to be, and I had some scraps that were just too big for me to throw away… And I had some extra craft bags that I over bought for gifts for my staff at work….so a little clipping here, a little glue there and….. five little gift bags….(which, actually I am passing on to you in the prize packs listed below)…
And here are the prizes…. I have started (again) to clean up the studio, and I have been saving up a bunch of stuff to giveaway..
And here it is just in time for Christmas…well the New Year really….. I will leave the drawing open until Midnight December 24th Pacific Standard time, and then sometime on Christmas day I will choose the winners. But I want to do something a little different for this giveaway…a little word association please…so here is your task…you have to answer the following questions to be eligible to win:
1.) when you think of the word “bungalow” what comes to mind? words, colors, textures, images, thoughts, things along those lines.
2.)same concept for the word “cottage”..what comes to your mind with that word?
and 3.) would you rather spend a holiday weekend at the bungalow or the cottage?
These questions aren’t too tough, I hope. I am gonna tweet this post too, cause I want to hear what everyone has to say. Winners will be handpicked by me, and I will be looking for the most descriptive responses to my questions…(I don’t sound too much like a high school teacher do I?) So let the comments and answers begin…and before I sign off, I want to thank you so much for stopping by the Blue Nickel…sometimes I don’t get in here too often myself, but I always enjoy my time in Blogland with you all..I will be more active again once my day job winds down in the next few weeks. As my friend Jona mentioned recently, having a job, no matter how stressful, is a very good thing these days…a very good thing indeed.
——Aha!! And you thought you were leaving!! One last photo to share progress on the Sis Boom So St. Croix project for Free Spirit… here part of it is on the design wall… Now, now I am signing off, and YOU can start leaving comments and telling all your bloggin’ buds about the Big Giveaway!! I will likely be adding little bits to the prize packs this week so there will be surprizes too!
