New Blogs, New Ideas, New Followers!

Oh my! There were so many entries to my contest--I never get that many visitors in a year (or two, or three)! Love it! This whole blog hopping giveaway with SMS was so fun. I've found new amazing blogs to get ideas from, picked up a few followers  (thanks!), started following LOTS of blogs, and entered so many contests. Whew!

Because I am so excited that
some of you were kind enough to follow me
(I'm easily excited about these types of things),
I'm adding just a little extra giveaway on my simple little blog
 as a way of saying "Thank You!" for following me.

This giveaway is only open for a few days--winner will be chosen on Monday, May 28th, 6 p.m. PST, and announced soon after.

Rules for entry:
1. Must be a Follower (which is why I'm doing this in the first place), new or not-so-new, and leave a comment (I like short and sweet ones, like "chocolate truffles"--that one came from the other giveaway and made me laugh)
2. Make sure I can contact you if you're a noreply blogger. Typing out your email address like this helps avoid spammers: iblog at aol dot com.
3. I'll mail the giveaway item anywhere if you win.
4. Only one entry per person.

What am I giving away you ask? will be a little Ghastlie surprise package similar to the
one I gave away in that other contest, but not the same.
You'll just have to win to see what you get.


  1. That's very generous of you!!! Following from Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day. Hi from Australia...

  2. BOO! ( I also love those Ghastlies!)

    I am glad I found your blog!

  3. How nice of you to give away two Prizes. I am a new follower and will return again to see what is new with you. I appreciated that you came back and left a response to my comment. It is always nice to get some dialogue going.
    Regards from Western Canada,

  4. That's me on the right! Thought I started following you the other day but since I didn't I am now correcting that mistake. Sometimes I'm just brain dead. Rina

  5. Crickets corner isn't the only brain dead person. I also thought I started following you the other day, I'm also correcting that mistake. ;-> Toni Anne
