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.

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,

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
