This is it, my 200th post! And look! You're here! Thanks for visiting. No, really, I appreciate it. I don't know why I keep yammering on the way I do or why I keep posting pictures of odd things. I don't even know who's reading, really. Sometimes it feels like I'm typing into a cyber void. I'd like to say I don't care who's reading, that I do it just for the fun of it, but I do care. So thank you for coming here. I'm glad you stopped by.
Also, I just realized while looking back on my posts that April 22 is the day I started this blog two years ago. And if that weren't enough, it's also Earth Day. To celebrate, I'm having a contest. The winner gets this:
A reversible grocery tote. By popular demand (O.K., just two people) I'm making these again and will be offering them on my website soon. This one, however, is up for grabs. All you have to do is tell me in at least 250 words why you love me. I will choose the best essay based on proper grammar and heartfeltedness.
Just kidding! Simply leave a comment with your name in it. That's it. You don't even have to leave a witty remark if you don't want to. You can even say, "You suck KB!" and I will still count it (but please don't, because that would hurt my feelings). A week from today I'll throw all the names into a hat and choose 5 winners.
Winner #1 gets the tote plus a phone pad and sketchbook from Rock Scissor Paper (blogged here) and maybe some other stuff thrown in too. Four more winners will receive phone pads and their choice of a sketchbook as well. One week from today I'll post the winners' names and they can email me with their addresses and sketchbook selections. Don't forget to check back to see if you won!
This contest is open to all crafty-friends, not-so-crafty friends, relatives, in-laws, secretaries, Shepherdstownies, Los Angelenos, former students, former bosses and co-workers, Janegirls, childhood friends, Flickr friends, international people, lurkers, first-timers, and total strangers. In other words - everyone! One entry per person please.
Meanwhile, I'm going to take a break from blogging this week. I need to spend a little time sprucing up my poor neglected website. Lately, I've been spending too much time here and not enough over there. I want to change things up a bit - tweak the design, take old stuff down, discontinue some items and introduce new ones. Hopefully this week I can get started on that, but I'll probably just spend all my time sewing.
Don't be shy - sign up! You just might win. Good luck!
