It is a nice, cool morning here in the Shenandoah. Ahhhh...a little relief from the heatwave that has been Summer 2011. Perfect weather for my....birthday! Yes, it is my birthday today and I am another year older but I try to look at it as just being another year wiser!
So, to celebrate my birthday, I am holding my first ever GIVEAWAY! I love parties and since I cannot gather everyone at my home, this is one way I can celebrate with you, my blogging buddies! I am keeping the gifties under wraps (hehehehe) but it will include some fun stuff and maybe even a gift certificate! So, here are the rules...
1. You must be a follower...leave me a comment on this post with your email address or some other way to contact you. If you don't want your email out there for everyone to see just pop me a private email at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Score an extra entry if you post this giveaway on your blog; please mention in your comment if you have/or promise to post the giveaway somewhere on your blog.
That's it! I understand this is a busy time of year for many of us due to vacations, parties, family gatherings, and just plain summer fun! So, the giveaway will close on Monday, July 25 to give people plenty of time to enter. I will choose a winner the next day. Good Luck!
Now, on to the stitchy stuff! I mentioned in my July stitching goals post that I started the Rebecah French class from The Essamplaire. I was in love with this sampler the minute I saw her...so pretty! I contacted Margriet, owner and designer of The Essamplaire, and she gladly gave me permission to use the photo of Rebecah French from The Essamplaire site. So, thanks to Margriet, here is Rebecah in all her stunning beauty...
The Essamplaire website, you must go and have a look! There is some serious eye candy...it is calorie free, but maybe not for your wallet!
Hubby and I will be taking a trip to Williamsburg for a few days to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary (they are only four days apart!) and I cannot wait! I promise to take lots of pics...so get ready for a few more history lessons!
Also, I would like to mention that I have tried to comment on several blogs but have been unsuccessful. For some reason, on a select few blogs, have been unable to leave comments because Blogger keeps asking me for my log in info over and over and over again...and then I still cannot actually leave the comment! It has been quite frustrating. I have tried emailing these individual bloggers but several of them do not have their email available publicly. So, if you have been leaving me comments, but have not heard from me...believe me, I have been trying! I hope this Blogger comment issue gets resolved soon!
Before I go, I would like to thank you, dear readers, for all of the kind comments regarding my ABC Lessons finish and our trip to Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest. I am very blessed to have such great stitchy friends!
Take care dear friends, and good luck in the Birthday Celebration Giveaway!
