If this blog gets over 150 comments, I’ll add more really cool stuff :) It’s already gotten 37 in less than 24 hours, it could happen ;) Please keep checking back!!!

***********Update Tuesday, March 13th************

Whoa!!!! 155 comments?!?! I never would have thought!!! Okay… to keep the momentum going… for every 50 more comments over 150, I’ll add something new… I still have to add a few new things because of the over 150 comments thing…. I’ll add those sometime today or tomorrow!! Keep the comments coming, this is so fun! :)
***********Update Thursday, March 15th************

Okay guys… where have you been hiding all this time? ;) Here are the new items I have added for us reaching over 150 AND getting to 200!!

Item #9
A little Nicol Sayre Chick! She’s a cute little pink paper pulp chick rolled in glitter.
Item #10
A little Midwest chick ornament. He’s like the above little “peep” chick but smaller and wearing more of a top hat than a pointy hat!
Item #11
A set of 2 little foil baskets with flowers from Midwest!
Item #12
A cute little vintage-inspired basket by Bethany Lowe Designs artist, Casey Mack.

I would have liked to add more of my handmade items, but I haven’t had time to make anything! eek! But we had so much fun with this giveaway that we are already planning future ones… there might be a scavenger hunt involved next time! Details to come soon :) What’s the next big holiday anyway? 4th of July? Ahhh heck, I think I’ll just do a “Happy Unbirthday” themed one and a “Why Not” themed one ;)

Okay… here are the rules:

1. You must comment on THIS post to be entered in the giveaway. Say anything you want, it’s only your placeholder ;)
2. One comment per person, please :)
3. Please include your email in your comment in the wordpress comment field (not in your actual comment that all the world will see!). If you are the winner (and I hope you are!) I’ll need a way to contact you!
4. I’ll be announcing the winners on Sunday, March 18th in the evening sometime :). I’m going to push the date to March 21st for the announcements. I just found the “Creative Giveaway” blog and I think it would be fun to participate. Everyone finds out what they won at the same time all over the world… I thought that was kind of neat! This means that the contest will be closed on the 21st… Let’s say at 12 noon Pacific Time or after I have my lunch! hehe!
5. International requests are welcome! *But* I may send you some of the lighter stuff and not the 4 lb bath product set ;) We’ll cross that bridge when I get to it!
6. To clarify, there will be 12 different winners and I’ll be sending out 1 item per winner :)

I think that’s it… Good Luck and thanks again for reading!!!! Happy Spring! :)

    Yikes! I just looked at my lat entry and realized my dates are out of whack since it’s 2008 now. I hope you are snug and safe and loving North Carolina. I wonder where in NC you’ve landed; my arty friends lived in Ashville and loved it there. Good luck!
