My 1000th Post and a GIVEAWAY

Comments are now closed, I will draw the winners today.  Thanks to everyone that commented!

That's right!! This is my 1000th post.  Who knew I had so much to say?  I was trying to figure out what to giveaway when it hit me.  I emailed a good friend of mine, Barb, from Me and My Sister Designs.  She generously offered up a honeybun of Happy and a charm pack of  Ready Set Snow.  So there you go.  That's what's up for grabs.


Let's split it into 2 winners.  One person will win either the honey bun or the charm pack.  The first name I draw will get their first choice.  Here's what you need to do.

1-Become my follower via Google friend connect (or let me know you are already a follower) and leave a comment telling me you did. 

2-Let me know how you found my blog and which prize is your first choice.
I've always wanted to know how people found my blog for the first time!

3-Blog about the giveaway, leave me a comment telling me you shared the giveaway
for an extra chance to win.

That's it.
 Three things, three comments and three chances to win.
 In addition, it would be nice if you took a minute and hopped over to Me and My Sister Designs
 and thank them for their generosity!!
They are going to be involved in a couple of blog hops soon so it would be good to find their blog! 

I first met Barb and Mary at spring market last year.
 They are 2 of the sweetest women I have ever met and sooooo much fun!!  Thanks ladies for your generosity!

Me and My Sister

Oh, and if I happen to get over 500 followers,
 I have another little prize to giveaway,
 so please spread the word.


Birdie Panel

~XOP~
I will draw for the prizes on Sunday night EST, February  19th.

I landed here via links elsewhere. For the life of me, I cannot remember from where. Sometimes, I follow links and then hop and skip from links within that one. Confusing huh? LOL. But, it's an awesome way to find blogs. Anyway, I've been following you for a bit now. :-D

Karen said...

I got to your blog from Me and My Sisters !! They are great girls aren't they ? Love the honey bun but can work wonders with either ! Happy Valentines day and happy 1000th post !

Cheers !
Karen

tpott said...

I came by way of Stray Stitches tonite, but you're on my favorites list. If I were lucky enought to win I'd pick the Happy hunny bun. Thanks for the great giveaway. Happy Valentine's Day!

VK said...

I found you through "Me and My Sister." Now I have a new blog to follow. I think the happy would be my choice, just because I've got a Christmas quilt and not a Happy one. :)

Diane said...

I've been following your blog for a whiles ... cant even remember where / how I found you :) But I'm subscribed through my Google Reader so I dont miss any posts!

I'm thinking I like the Ready Set Snow ... never too early to get a jump on Holiday gifts!

thanks for the chance.

Jeanne said...

I've been following you on Bloglines for some time. Not sure exactly how I found your blog. Could be from another blogger's comment page. I would love to have the honey bun of Happy! Happy Valentine's Day, Pam!

Thanks.

sophie said...

I discovered you when we were both participating in a doll quilt swap quite a few years ago--coincidentally, I just took the quilt I received in that swap into my new job ... in a sea of beige cubicles and no window in sight, I really needed something interesting and colorful in my environment.

Congratulations on your big milestone. 1000 posts is a biggie. Hope you keep going for 1000's more. It's been a while since I first discovered your blog, but I think it was from a link on the sidebar of someone else's blog.

Mary said...

I forgot to say that both prizes are awesome, but I think I would pick the honeybun.

Whitney M said...

I found your blog through Barb and Mary! And since I already have 4 charms or ready set snoe...I'd take the happy honey bun!

Shari said...

Congratulations on 1,000 posts! A great achievement. I'm a long-time follower and to be honest I don't remember how I found you. You were probably being followed by one of my friends' blogs (Julia or Lurline in Oz) as I started from there when I started my blog in late 2008. I don't comment often, but I do pass by now and again.

I don't remember where I first learned about your blog. From some other blog, no doubt. Once I start going from blog to blog my mind gets all tangled up and it's hard to remember where I've been! If I should be lucky enough to win the Happy roll would be my first choice.
