So many visits...must be time to give something away!

I recently noticed that my blog had reached 100,000 views - think about that...100,000.  My blog has been looked at 100,000 times!?  Crazy!  So...in honor of that, I'm going to have a giveaway.  To enter to win, here is what you have to do...go to my website and choose your favorite thing on there.  It can be jewelry or quilt patterns - anything that is on the website.  Come back here and in your comment, tell me what is your favorite...and if you are chosen...that will be your prize!  Also...if you are a "No Reply" commenter - I really wish you would change your settings!  I hate it when someone leaves me a comment and I can't respond to them - just seems rude to me - and I don't want to be rude!  So...if you are "No Reply" or "Anonymous", you have to leave your e-mail address in your comment, or you won't be eligible to win.  I would appreciate it if you sign up to be a "Follower" of my blog, but it's not required for the giveaway.  I will draw a name on Friday, February 13th.  (Eek...Friday, the 13th?!)

Hopefully some of you will read the rest of this post!  I will keep it short.  Here is the 3rd little charm for Charming 3.  Can't believe we are halfway done already!

Remember this blanket?  I bought this at my least favorite store in the world...Wal-Mart!  I may not love the store, but I do love this blanket...it is soooo soft and I love the color and design.  It's funny because Callie lays on this all the time and just kneads, and kneads it.

 But Ozzie hates it!  Yes, he is laying on it here, but it doesn't happen often.  He likes to sit on my lap, but if that blanket is on me...he won't lay on it! Silly cat!


This coming week is my birthday week (you know...I claim the whole month) and a good friend and I are going to celebrate by going to a Fleetwood Mac concert!  When I was in high school, I was invited to go see Fleetwood Mac and I begged, and begged (it was on a school night!) until my Mom finally said I could go.  We were soooo excited, and could not wait for that concert.  And when the day came...Stevie Nicks lost her voice and they cancelled!  So when my friend called and asked if I wanted to go, I could not pass it up!  And even better, her birthday is the 10th, mine is the 12th, and the concert is the 11th. . Happy birthday to us!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

  10. Happy Birthday and have a great time at the Fleetwood Mac concert!!! I have one of your pendants (love it) and gave one as a gift to a quilter friend (she loves it). It's so hard to choose but I'd have to say the 1 1/2" Pineapple with a Flower Pendant (yellow, pink and green flower, surrounded by scrappy logs) would be my choice. Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

  23. Picking a favorite was hard. I loved everything. The one that caught my eye was the square in a square pendant in blue, tan and brown with the kitty in the middle.

    Cats are the funniest fun creatures. Mine, who has a shoe fetish, is literally petrified of a pair of purple slippers I own.

  24. I would love a pineapple pendant PD1049, black and tan. I have one of your log cabin pins. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh my gosh, it is so hard to choose. I love all the pendants and can't tell you how many times in the last couple of years I have looked thru them all and picked favorites. I did order a bunch once but they were for prizes for our guild Quilto and I did not win. I think right now if I won I would like the bright pineapple block. PD053
    Thank-you for this opportunity to win and have a wonderful bday month. I just celebrated my bday month in January.

  28. Oh my - what a fun and challenging question as there are so many things I love (in addition to the ones I've already purchased.) Because I don't have one of these yet, I'll choose the Scissor Fob - Pumpkin (FB 005) because my birthday is in October. Have a wonderful time at the concert and Happy, Happy Birthday!

  30. You sure do make it hard on us, don't you? LOL!!! I picked out about 10 of my favorites, but I think the one I would wear the most - with just about everything in fact! - would be PD017, the pink & teal pineapple on black. Love it!!! Thanks for sharing with us - your jewelry is such beautiful art!

  46. Happy Birthday! Enjoy Fleetwood Mac, they are great!!!! Thanks for the giveaway. If I were to win, although it's a very difficult choice, I would like the 1 1/2" crazy block pendant.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes, Happy Birthday to you both. Fleetwood Mac - one of my all time favs, too.
    OMG, you sent us on Mission Impossible. There are so many of your luscious little gems that I would love to own. I narrowed it down to PD045 the pink pineapple with light shirting. (You have a wonderfully stocked shop! Do you have as many multiples of each as the heart pins on this post?) I loved the pumpkins, log cabins and the houses, and, of course, all the pineapples and the flowers, too. You are amazing. (I am a follower, for a while now, and enjoy every post.)
    Hugs
