50 Follower Give Away (we're at 46!)

Scroll down for the updates

OK so right after my last post, which was totally depressing sorry, I decided I would set up my next give away to cheer everyone up! I had said I would have one in February after the cruise and I'm still planning on it unless this takes that long. So...I went shopping. I found a bunch of cute random things so there is no theme but here's how it's going to work.

I currently have 30 followers, although right before I sat down to write this I noticed a new one. Yeah! Welcome Carol from The Answer is Chocolate (totally love that name don't you?).  Anyway...I will add one new goodie to the give away pile for each new follower. So when I get to 50 that will be 21 items in the package. Now I'm not talking a sheet of paper either. So come on! Join in the fun and be a follower. If you already are, blog about this and maybe we'll get there faster. It's not a requirement but I'd love it if you did. This drawing will only be open to actual followers so there's no sign up to do, I'll just have the random tool give me a number between 1 & 50 and then go down the list to that member. Easy peasy. I do love comments though (in case you couldn't tell by the big beating heart at the top of the page) and like to visit the blogs of those who follow me so don't just become a follower and then never come back. That's not fair to those who really do participate.

Here's the first 2 goodies since I'm at 31 now (one to begin and one for the first new follower).


Yeah! We have another new follower! Shirl from CreationsbyShirl, Welcome! I've had her candy in my side bar, she's trying to get to 400 and I know she will! She has some fantastic projects.

I'm adding a bag of 40 pink ribbon roses to the pile! Here's a pic...

Yippie! Two new followers!
