Surprise!!!!

Maaaaan, how many of you are going to be ticked you didn't just keep postin'!!! Winner turns out to be Shabby Kim.


COME ON, YOU CAN KEEP GOING AS LONG AS IT HITS 20!! I CAN'T BELIEVE SOME OF YOU AREN'T READING CAREFULLY!!

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!


Now that I've captured your attention I'll let you know what I'm going to do.

A GIVEAWAY! YES, OF THOSE VERY LETTERS YOU SEE ON THE POST.
N E S T

Yep, and no waiting for me to draw a name out of a bowl. I have done this frequently in my eBay group in the past—just post a picture of something or give them a hint to do something and tell them it's a giveaway and the first one to shoutout gets it. It keeps them on their toes, I tell ya. I've a very, very creative person when it comes to giveaways. *Wink*

Anyway, it can't possibly be the first one today but here's how it works now—very simple. The 20th person to leave a post on this post right here wins them. But they have to live in the U.S. You can post all you want on here, no limit, but it's the 20th post. Ain't I a sweetheart? (In my best southern drawl voice.)

  9. Oh what a lovely giveaway. However, no one is going to leave a post now until 19 others have done so. LOL

    Well, since I don't win giveaways very often I figured what the heck, I'll help everone out by leaving a post and wishing you a wonderful weekend.

    I just adore how crafty you are.

    Hugs,
    Joanne

  33. Hey Connie. What a neat & fun idea. I think you're well past 20. I just wanted to stop by and thank you for your well wishes that you left me. Your so sweet with or without the Southern drawl.

    Hugs Sweetie, Tracy :)

  34. Oh, what a fun post and a beautiful giveaway! I wish I'd been on the ball earlier!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yes, one of the most popular blogs is getting so hard to get on, I skip it many days.
    I am going to remove my music if my blog gets slow loading...
    Also one you didn't mention is all the html buttons everyone is making. When we start adding so much java script, we are going to get bogged down. I learned that it is better to publish a photo of the button on your sidebar but copy and paste the address instead of using the html code. I am in the process of that right now.

    So, are you saying we can have too many PHOTOS on our sidebar? I am deleting all html's....well, NEARLY all. I'm testing as I go along. I don't want to take out my personality from my blog....everyone's blog is different /...just like our personalities...
    Thanks so much for your help..
    and if ever my blog starts acting up, please let me know...thanks!!

  37. Oh, shoot! Can I be the next 20th???

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. No fair, Connie... I can't see who is ahead of me, so I will post again!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. And again, and at least I "think" that might make me go up to 40. LOL! I feel like one of the computer gizmos that attaches itself to a blog. ;-)

    XO,

    Sheila

    P.S. Do you have trouble loading my blog??? BJ said it loaded fast for her, but I'm thinking of going with the bigger pics. Not sure what I'm doing, but I did take off the blingy sidebar things. I also took off my music which I miss. :-(

    ReplyDelete
  40. Okay, you... I was the 20th on the LAST post. LOL! ;-)

    XO,

    Sheila
