Funny Friday

Alright, I don't feel like blogging right now. I'm not in the groove. Ergo I am going to keep everything short and sweet.

How often do you see a card looking like this?


I have a good idea who did it. . . . Do you?

Giveaway Winners

Hey, I only had 3 people enter the giveaway. Makes things real easy for me! The rest of you who didn't enter, you're missing out!

Here are the answers to the Quiz:
#1. "Hogs and Kisses".
#2. Kenny is a water birth baby.
#3. Lexi broke her arm when Kenny was about a month old.
#4. Yes, of course I take glorious pictures!
#5. Lexi is sweet and sassy and cute as can be!
#6. And therefore # 5 is a trick question..
#7. We went to the Buckwheat Festival.
#8. The Princess and the Pea.
#9. Kenny burned his hand and it was terrible. Poor thing!
#10. I poured juice into the butter during breakfast one morning. Wierdo!

So, the only person (of three) who got 10 out of 10 right was Alicia! Good job! You other two lovely people missed the last one, and that is all. Darn! (Alicia, send me your address to this e-mail:

The random drawing was between Michelle and Priscilla. Lexi picked the folded up name paper for me and it was: Priscilla! So Priscilla gets the Purple package. (Maybe the Piggy bank can my for Maddie, huh?)

Considering that I only had 3 people enter this giveaway, I will give Michelle and Priscilla 2 handmade washcloths each, and Michelle a Mary Englebreit notebook that I bought for myself
: ). I like you all so well, so it is fun for me to send fun stuff to y'all!

I already know Michelle and Priscilla's addresses. So I will send off the packages soon!

And I will leave you all with this cute little picture of the Kidlets: "Taking Tea"

1 Year of Blogging Giveaway!

Well, I have decided what I am going to do for my Giveaway. Yippee! So, this is how it is going to go down. There will be two separate packages. The Blue Package and the Purple Package.

The Blue Package features:

3 handmade washcloths, a lovely candle, 2 handmade cards and a Mary Englebreit notepad (I LOVE Mary Englebreit).

The Purple Package features:

A darling Piggypalz bank, an awesome notepad and a handmade washcloth. (All handmade items are made by me, of course.)

How does one go about winning one of these packages? Well, the Purple Package will just be a random drawing, but to acquire the Blue is a bit more tricky. You have to take a quiz about my blog and the person who gets the most answers right will get the package. Easy as that. Does that sound like fun, or what!?! :)

So . . . to enter, just post a comment if you only want to go for the Purple. But if you want to go for the Blue as well just post the answers to this quiz! (The comments below will show zero no matter how many comments are given, until the contest is over. [I have changed the comment form.] So nobody can see what anyone else wrote. Pretty sneaky, eh?)

The Dreadfully Egregious Quiz

#1. What does the Valentine (from last year) featuring a Hog say?
#2. In what unusual way was Kenny born?
#3. What happened to Lexi's arm shortly thereafter?
#4. Does Courtnie take tons of sweet, totally awesome pictures?
#5. Is Lexi sweet, or sassy?
# 6. Is # 5 a trick question?
# 7. What festival did we attend in October?
# 8. What were the Kidlets for Halloween?
# 9. What happened to Kenny's hand on Christmas?
# 10. How did Courtnie start her day off in a rather inauspicious way?

Here are a few other rules of this Giveaway. One person cannot win both packages. If there is a tie on the quiz, it will become subject to a random drawing between the ones that tied. The contest will be open for one week. It closes and the winners will be announced on February10th. And last, but not least; depending on how many comments I get, I may be able to give everyone a handmade washcloth! (I don't expect more than five, which means I will just make 3 more washcloths. And then we can all be happy! Me, because I get to give fun stuff to people, and everyone else because they get fun stuff!)

Good luck!
