No Foolin'! Blog Birthday Giveaways!

No foolin' !! I'm going to 'Giveaway 3 Boxes of Goodies' to ' 3 Lucky Ladies or Gentlemen' on April 1st "April Fools Day".. Tuesday evening, I will throw all the names in a bowl and pick out and announce winners, then you can email me your names, addresses where to mail... Easy right?!..

Papers, trims, fabrics, figurines, buttons and whatever I can throw in my little boxes... as have been whining about cleaning my workroom for awhile and finally have been doing it!! [note: alittle change here I apologize!! There are also 'men' out there blogging... and forgot to include them..sorry guys! I correct this post for you..]

so will share the wealth.. ha! Leave your comments on this post..

Yes, it has been 1 year around this time I began my Blog.. it's been fun and even learned a few things too! Did up these 2 collages with some of my postcards and kits from 'Peppermint Creative ' http://www.peppermintcreative.com/ one of the 'first sites' I bought from and downloaded, also enjoy the 'freebies' to get started with digi scrapping ... Thank you Miss Peppermint!

Years ago I had read in China that on your birthday 'you give gifts' to others rather than receive.. not sure if that's true, but sounded like a nice thing to do..so that's ' why the Giveaway's to all the neat blog ladies & men I have met thru blogging..



Some pretties for your use..








Say 'Hello' to my Bunny buddies..





What to do with all those leftover colored eggs !?

Happy Blog Birthday! Love all the yummy eye candy!

We took all the dyed eggs and made deviled eggs from them.

Did you notice on my blog, the picture over the kitchen sink that held the Happy Easter Tag you gave me??

So, what I am saying here, is that I love your stuff and hope that I am a lucky three to get more.
