100th Blog-Day Bash Giveaway

PHOTO OF THE "100TH BLOG-DAY BASH" GIVEAWAY!
(Click on photo to enlarge.)

With just over 3 months of blogging behind me, I have now arrived at my 100TH POST! I marvel that I reached this pinnacle in such a short period of time! I honestly didn't see this coming. I basically birthed eye-dyllic and began to type– blazing a trail, naming landmark moments, and welcoming old and new friends. I didn't utilize Neo Counter from the beginning, but since introducing it to my blog, I have had 2771 visitors from 37 countries! I am overwhelmed by this warm and wondrous blogging community! I feel so at home!

I love to give and I can't think of a better occasion to celebrate! The above photo showcases the items included in the Giveaway...

  • A floral, Fine Bone China teacup and saucer by Stechcol.
  • A package of the Iveta Gourmet Pumpkin Scones featured in my September 27th, 2007 "Meanderings" post.
  • Judith Wibberley's book, "Just the Right Words," which includes "over 400 messages and motifs for cardmakers and crafters."
HERE IS HOW THE GIVEAWAY WORKS...As a challenge to myself, I am aiming for 100 names to be included in this GIVEAWAY. I need your help to achieve this. All you have to do is alert your friends and provide them with a link to this post. Be sure that they MENTION YOUR NAME when they publish their comment. You will receive an additional entry for every person who mentions your name!

  1. To avoid confusion, it is IMPORTANT that you read these directions.
  2. To enter this GIVEAWAY, all you need to do is click on "COMMENTS" at the end of this post and type in a message that includes your name. Be sure to click on "PUBLISH" when you are finished.
  3. You may post ONLY ONE COMMENT. All duplicate entries will be deleted.
  4. Entries must be posted under this "100TH BLOG-DAY BASH GIVEAWAY" heading.
  5. YOU WILL RECEIVE AN ADDITIONAL ENTRY FOR EACH PERSON THAT YOU REFER TO THIS GIVEAWAY! THEY MUST MENTION YOUR NAME IN THE COMMENTS. I will calculate these additional entries before the drawing.
  6. This GIVEAWAY is open to all of my blogging friends, regardless of what country you are from.
  7. The DEADLINE for posting comments is: 11:59 PM PST, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11TH, 2007.
OCTOBER 12TH,2007 – THE THRESHOLD FOR ENTERING THE "GIVEAWAY" IS OVER. THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON THIS BLOG BEFORE 3:00 PM PST TODAY...

I miss our secret sister fun. I miss Fran :(
Thanks for including me in your emails. I had my 50th birthday a few weeks ago and this year has been a "Year of change" for me. I got elected to the school board in May and July 1st I started going to school full time (finally decided what I wanted to be when I grew up) along with working part time SO life is busy (not much stamping).
I have started Recipe scrapbooks for my daughter and nieces for Christmas....incorporating family recipes and pics. I am excited about this project.
Love you dear friend.

JEANNIE MASELLA tried to post from her workplace today only to discover that they BLOCK BLOGS! She has no computer at home, so she resigned herself to not being able to enter the Giveaway...

So, on Jeannie's behalf, I am posting for her. The audacity that someone would block something as wondrous as a blog??? I think I'm going to take it personally... {{GRIN}}
