Happy Happy Bloggy Bloggy

Well, I had a tough go of it. I cut up all of the comments but it wasn't working, so I googled up a random number generator, but it was so fun I started playing with it and then I couldn't really use any of the numbers. I wanted everyone to win. My solution to this problemo was to call my friend Deb and have HER go to a random generator, you see I can trust her, don't trust me, but I trust her. Deb put the numbers in and gave it a go and BINGO the winning number! A number I can stick to.
25!!! Regina at Bitnbyaquiltingbug
Regina, send me your address and I will put it in the mail, which reminds me, Julia, I haven't forgotten you, your's will be mailed in the same group.
Thank you all so much for your awesome comments, I will try to respond to all of you, but it will take a little time. I still need to tell you about the wonderful weekend we had!! That will have to wait till tomorrow because this day is about to end, and I have an announcement needs to be made TODAY.
The Happy Happy Bloggy Bloggy is because it is my blogaversary tomorrow! One year ago I took the dive. What fun it has been, meeting all of you in this lovely place called blogland. I love seeing everyone's talent and creativity, not to mention that some of you are so funny you should be published! OOO and the pictures, I hope to attain just a tiny bit of what makes you all so awesome & original. I'm just sayin.....
I mentioned last week that I would be having two celebrations, and I also mentioned that the bag I made from this pattern designed by PKM would be making a special repeat appearance. Well, to celebrate my first year of blogging I would love to offer this bag with a couple of surprizes inside.
I won't make you jump through hoops, play games, nor make any guesses. This is not a test, just a give away. Comment any time to this post between now and Sat. nite and I will beg Deb to put the numbers in the generator again and make one stick! I'll post a winner Sunday morning (not too early, I'm a California girl!) Looking forward to another year of having fun with all of you.

Linda said...

Congratulations to Regina, now don't you listen to Sharon, she probably has the pattern burried under all those pieces of fabric she has to help insulate her home. I'm so glad you joined in on the pincushion swap Mar, it meant I got to visit with you and see all your lovely creations.

Hi Mar!

Don't listen to RED! You should tell Deb to pick lucky #3! No offense Red, you know I like you, but that bag should be mine!

Anyway, congrats on your anniversary! If you hadn't taken the plunge, then we would have never "met!"

Your work is so inspiring to me because we have similar taste! Your words are so encouraging! You were the first person to ever leave me a comment and list me on your blog!

Once again, congrats and thanks for everything!

PS-Think lucky #3!
