And the Winner Is......

I'm so excited!  When I finally hit 101 followers, I decided to do a giveaway once I reached 125 followers.  Well, it just went crazy around here, and I'm now at 139!  Wahoo!!  Now, I know there is some kind of really cool website that allows you to put the info in and it chooses a winner, but I have no idea what that site is (Feel free to leave a comment if you know!!)  So, as for my first drawing, I used the highly scientific method of writing everyone's name down according to the number of times entered.  I put all the names in Barb Wire Man's nasty Harley Davidson hat he won't let me wash, and let Flower pull out a name.  And the winner is.....
Christie from Christie Cottage!

WOOHOO!!!  Congrats!!  I'll be sending you an email, so I can get your address so I can get the gift bags mailed to you! If you didn't win, don't worry!  I plan to do a lot more giveaways...hopefully using that really cool site I hope someone knows about!

Also, I'm still trying to clear out all the inventory that is over at 13 Plum!  Barb Wire Man is a great sport when it comes to all the things I make, really.  But I need to make room for some new things!  Everything in the shop is still 30% off with the coupon code MUSTGO11.  I'll also include a free gift with any purchase $30 or more!  
I know its only 100 degrees outside right now, but it will get cold of these days.  So get a new scarf and hat set early!
Before I forget, I better post today's to-do list!  I actually got everything on yeterday's list completely finished!  It too a bit longer than normal, because that dang new puppy we got hasn't learned not to mess with the laundry I hang out to dry.  He pulled all the towels in my first load of laundry off the line, I had to re-wash them, and I was not very happy!
  • Vacuum all rooms
  • Clean the middle and bottom shelves of refrigerator
  • Wipe down the inside and outside of microwave, and outside of oven
  • Scrub both toilets
  • Make beds
  • Straighten house
  • load/unload dishwasher
  • Empty kitchen trash
  • Prepare next day's coffee
  • Prepare tonight's supper
  • Set meat to thaw for tomorrow's supper
  • Wipe kitchen counters
  • Make Tea
  • Set out tomorrow's clothes
  • Kids baths/pick up bath toys
 Not too bad, and its a good thing because we have someone coming over to visit today!

Two more things really fast.  First, have you ever shopped through Zulily?  I did come checking around on it yesterday, and this site is pretty cool!  Especially if you have kids, but there's lots of stuff for us ladies also!  Every day they highlight different shops, and offer different deals!
And don't forget!  Tomorrow is Mega SwagBucks day!  Sign up today, so you can start saving big time tomorrow!
I pray that everyone has a marvelous day today!  We are so close to the weekend!  We can make it!

    Today is laundry day and I have not started. Totally unusual for me! MY grandson got here at 5:30AM that is one hour earlier than usual and also the time I start the laundry :-)

  2. Those are very pretty. I've tried knitting a time or two, but I always get interrupted and forget where I then I end up with a mess.

  3. Wow! You have a lot of energy to accomplish that long list. Thank you for linking up to my first link up.
