To All My Friends!

Well..... It's time time of year...... Today is my Birthday! And that means it's time for a giveaway:) It's time to celebrate! Let's see?!

*I've been blogging since Febuary 2008... A little over 3 years now. I started this blog to share my polymer clay creations, and along the way stumbled across miniatures. Blogging has been my way to the outside world, I'm homebound most days, And it so awesome to know that I have so many wonderful friends a finger type away!

*I'm doing really good with Etsy! I've had over 100 sales:) Thanks to all my 'friends'! Who knew I would have to change my life like I did, and in the end, end up doing something I love everyday!

*And..... the best part! I've haven't had to deal with 'surgeries' for almost 2 years now..... And I've manazged to gain the weight back that I lost when I first got sick. My heart surgeon the other day was picking with me the other day about it.... Told me he normally has to get on people about losing the weight...But now that I had gained it back that he could see why I was trying so hard. And believe me, when you don't even want to eat, it is hard to gain weight. I think it's the medicine I'm on now, but whatever! I'm doing a lot better than I was! That's for sure:) I will have ups and downs, but I think the worst is over?! ...knock on wood...

So.... with so many good things happening~ I want to do a giveaway! First we have a Shabby Chic sign that reads friends! Thought it fit perfectly!

And then there's this:
We'll call it a sampler from my Etsy store..... There's 2 birdhouses, 1 little worn down white house... A painted chess piece to use as a decoration.... a tiny shelf.... 3 small signs.... And one pink 'nesting doll'!

So.... What do you have to do to enter?

It's really easy:) Just leave me a comment on this post and tell me what your favorite color is! Easy enough, huh?! So you have until Easter Sunday (April 24) to enter, I will do the drawing in the Morning that day:) Sound Good??

OK.... I promised myself I would stay away from the computer today... I will be back soon with what I got for my Birthday:)

Until Next Time

My dear Katie, heartiest birthday wishes from me, my friend :):). It feels like forever since we have started communicating :). I am not sure if you remember but a long time ago, I nudged you to sell your minis :) because I knew you would do very well ;p. hehe! It really doesn't take a prophet to know that. Your work is wonderful. The work on the little saint is the latest testament.

Thank you for organising this giveaway. They are all wonderful creations.

At the moment, my favourite colour is turquoise.

Kelli said...

Happy birthday Katie! I know all about weighing less than you "should," been something that I and endocrinologists have gone back and forth on for too many years to count. As I too am at my healthiest weight right now -- I'm hoping we both may stay here and happy! Hope your day was filled with joy, and leads to a year full of blessings for you and yours. I would also like to be a part of your giveaway, and one of my favorite colors is green.
