Right before the challenge started I was commenting as usual, minding my own business and not paying attention. Most of the time when you guys are giving away something or having a contest I just am stopping by because I want to be there nothing more. I did not know I had to tell you that!
(I’m going to say this in advance) I suffer from the same disease my grandmother has CRS (Can’t Remember Sh*t), it has been a month so forgive me if I don’t recall all the details.
In step Ella from Ella’s Edge, apparently I won her give away. After the notifying email, I received a lovely box of goodies; books, a magazine, gloves, candy, plant seeds and a hat pin. Ella and I go way back, I have thanked her via email but you guys need to know she is one crafty chick. Besides we have a swamp in common, a place we both want to visit. Check her out and thanks again Ella.
Next up was Ann at Inkpots and Quills. I was just visiting Ann on my regular routine and saw my name, again, I had won. What did I enter? For the life of me I cannot remember but I received a $20 Amazon gift card. WOW! Ann has had some amazing travel posts throughout the challenge and I encourage you all to visit her. Thank you, Ann.
Then came Vicki at Rambles & Randomness and I’m sorry to say I don’t know what I entered but I won the loveliest silver and diamond bookmark accompanied by survival chocolate. The chocolate accompanied me to the basement during the storms, priorities people! Thank you Vicki, and if you have not checked her out please do, her sense of humor is priceless.
Now the awards, and I have no idea what order they came in, sorry.
Tiger over at Tiger on my bookshelf gave me this one. Thank you. If you have not met Ms. Tiger please do go check her out, she is a freshman in the blogging community and needs some peeps to add to her posse. Also, she has services to offer the community,
so go have a look see.
Tammy @ Message in a Bloggle: the Art of Being Broken handed out this one. Again, another lady you do not want to miss. Her writing is wonderful, funny and well… I just love her style. Thanks Tammy.
Flore @ Day by Day gave me another Stylish award. Yes, it comes with rules and links but I’m breaking the rules have done this already. Thank you, Flore.
Then yes, like many of you I received this one from Deirdra @ A Storybook World. Thank you, I am honored you found me and thought me award worthy.
Now as you can see there is a great deal of work that went into this post, see all those links? While I am honored with the acknowledgement you were thinking of me, it is work. Please I’m asking you to just leave me a simple comment and hold on the awards until I get my new layout done. I’m creating a special place for these.
On Alabama, I’m bummed. Gas just went to $4/gallon here which would cost me half my unemployment check just to get a tank full. Not in my budget. HOWEVER, please go check out this site, ALL 4 ALABAMA, there is an upcoming auction to benefit the victims. Or just clean out your closet and take to the Salvation Army.
I hope everyone is having a happy hump day and the weather where you are is cooperating.
