WOW ~ y'all amaze me!!

I am just floored by the response to my giveaway! Y'all are making my head swell with all the nice compliments on my afghan and hearts! Thank you so much ~ you have no idea what these nice words mean to me. When I started my giveaway, I only had 30 something followers. When I logged on here this morning, I now have 95 followers! That is amazing to me! Now I realize that in order to win, one of the rules was that you have to be a follower and I know that some people only follow to see if they win and then you never hear from them again. And that's o.k. because the way I see it, if you sign on to follow just in hopes of winning and then you never check back again, you don't know what you may be missing out on! Because my next giveaway may be a "quiet" one and only my true followers will know!

Anyway, I have decided that if I reach 100 followers, I will give away two prizes! No, I don't have another afghan finished to put in the second prize package, but it will have some heart bowl fillers and some other good stuff as well. So if you know anybody that hasn't signed up, get'em over here! That way you will have two chances to win something.

Well, that's about all I have for now. My washing machine is broken (again!) so hubby is in there trying to fix that for me so I can get my laundry finished up. We slept in this morning so I fixed breakfast for brunch and I've got to get in there and get that mess cleaned up. Later we are going to run out to Lowe's and check on some prices for some home improvement projects we hope to get started on soon! All in all, just a lazy Sunday on the books for us and that's just the way I like it!

Until next time. . .



  1. Donna, congrats on so many new followers, I have found that yes, you will get some that sign on just to be able to enter and never to be heard from again ( I have some of those:) but also some of the new followers will stick around and become regulars, and maybe they just didn't know about your blog before too. I hope your enjoying your weekend and hope the washer gets fixed soon...that's no fun:(

  2. I love to see what everyone is up to....I will be around long past the giveaway :) Have a good day!

  3. Donna that's exactly what I should be doing instead of checking in on my fav blogs lol ....ugggghhhhhh laundry =0( I hope that all the peeps who signed up to follow you continue, cause they sure will miss out on some GREAT posts
    if they don't ! Enjoy your day.

  7. Hi Donna, that is what happened to me for
    the sifter, I went from 32 to 82 in a short
    time have gained some since. I will check
    out your give away and sign up! Too bad I
    won't make you hit 100! I thought I had
    signed on before, I guess I haven't signed
    all that signed on mine, yet, but I am
    getting there! Isn't blogging a lot of fun?

  11. Yah Donna,
    I hope my writing about it added a few. And a 2nd give-away? Oh, how cool! I have your package ready to mail but now it may have to wait until Tuesday because I think the post office is closed today for Martin Luther King Day. It will be in the mail bright and early Tuesday though. Hugs, Cindy
