A 100th post THANK YOU!!

After a whole lot of waiting... IT has finally arrived!!!

What is "IT" you ask???

Well "It" is my 100th blog post of course.

"IT" took me forever to decide what I would do for my big 100. Let’s face it… I had some tough acts to follow with Meri’s ellipsis and Tracy’s BIG WORDS!

I decided to change gears a bit and do a simple random giveaway, but with a bonus for those who have supported me most during the last 99 crazy posts.

The loot:
this crafty decorated paint bucket (that I picked up at Home Depot) filled with a few fun or maybe even some crafty surprises(I do love a good mystery).

Here’s how it works:.
ANYONE CAN WIN!!! If you would like to be entered in the random drawing… please leave a comment (you MUST do this in order to be entered... that's the only way I know your interested).

Bonus entries:

Bonus #1 I currently have 441 comments on my blog. (Sorry Mr. Chinese person, you annoy me and I have removed all of your comments. Therefore, you do not have a chance to win).
To thank those who have lifted my spirits when I was down, laughed with me, got mad at “that damn art teacher” with me or answered my questions… you get an extra entry for every comment you have left on my blog. (Don’t forget to leave a comment on this post so that I know you are interested and want to be entered).

Bonus #2 If you are a follower… you will get an additional entry (This is one of the only times it might pay to be a follower... you still have time to be a follower but, you will still need to leave a comment on this post to enter).


Sooo ~ for example: If Betty Lou wants the bucket of surprise… she leaves me a comment on this post.
(She is now entered to win)

Then ~ Betty Lou decides to become a follower to better her chances.
(BONUS... 2nd entry)

Then ~ Betty Lou has left 7 comments on the last 99 posts.
(Bonus... 7 more entries)

In all, Betty Lou has earned a total of 10 entries into the random drawing. The comments will be numbered in order received followed by the order of followers.

Please do not go back and makes comments now… I already have them written down in order.

I will use to make it fair.

You have all weekend to enter... I will choose the winner on Monday.

Good Luck Everyone!!!!!

Hi Lora! That's funny that you found me right when I was looking at your blog! Not sure what happened, but your post didn't go through today.

Anyway, thanks for your comment. Grace was diagnosed 1/23/09. Boy, what a year and a half, huh? I've added you to my blog roll, and look forward to reading your posts!

Meri said...

Hip Hip Hooray!! Hip Hip Hooray!! I am so excited!!!! For you...totally for you and your 100 posts, (and a little for me, because I have commented on your awesome blog and that means MORE ENTRIES!!) Great idea! Hehehehehe.

I'm so lucky to know you friend. And now that you have gotten this pesky 100 out of the way, I hope it means more frequent blogging. :)

I am interested and I love this idea! Great 100th post!

Joanne said...

Yay... a mystery! How fun. Count me in!

Wendy said...


This sounds like so much fun :)

It's been such a joy getting to know you...will you post who left how many comments? THAT would be kinda cool!

(FYI -- When I try to follow blogs, I don't get updated that there are new posts until WAY after the fact. The easiest way for me to get real time info is to just check my sidebar.)

oooooh! Ooooooooh! I want to win!!! I LOVE that can and your crafty ways! What a super creative idea! I can't wait to see what's in the can! Super cute!!! Btw- did you buy an empty can at Home Depot? I can think of all kinds of things i could do with one! Great gift idea!!

Heidi / Jack's Pack said...

How fun! You are so creative and talented!

Tammy said...

Funny about the Chinese guy leaving comments. LOL The bucket is super cute. :0)

Heidi =) said...

What a great idea! Super cute bucket too! I just became a follower but before I read about the contest. I'm fairly new to the D world and tonight I have been poking around to find more blogs from D moms and dads to add to my reading list.

I agree with everything Wendy said - it would be interesting to see who left how many comments. Did that sentence make sense?
