The GIveaway starts (finally - right?)

Okay I forgot to mention another gift I received from a very dear friend Angela at West Virginia's Treasures - she made me a Chatty Crone Favicon - do you see it? Thank you Angela - gee - I'm the luckiest blogger ever!

TO SHOW MY APPRECIATION FOR ALL MY WONDERFUL FOLLOWERS - I AM GOING TO START THE SIX DAYS (for six years) GIVE AWAY!

Okay how is this going to work?

Leave one answer per comment - you can have up to three comments = three chances a day to win. I'll pick a number daily at 10 pm giving every one a chance to leave a comment/comments during the day.

Now here is how to get three chances.

1. You get one chance if you are a follower.

2. If you are a follower - in a whole new comment - tell me what you like about blogging.

3. You get a third chance if you're a follower and you mention my giveaway on your blog. Just leave another comment and tell me you did it. Just a quick sentence - no big deal - that I'm having a giveaway today.

Easy Peasy.

I'll post who won the next morning with my daily post tomorrow morning and all you'll have to do is send me your address and I'll mail it to you after the 30th of September.

The comments you leave me today will be for the prize today.

Okay - what is the prize for today?

1. A brand new small white hot plate for your candle (or coffee). A couple small candles included.

Thought for the day - The things that matter most in this world are those that carry no price tag, for they can neither be bought nor sold at any price.
Suze Orman

For me it has been your friendship the past 6 years.


If you don't want to be entered just let me know.

You want to know what makes me a happy blogger,it's folks like you always with encouragement,creativity and just down right true good friends....100% of the folks we blog with are people we have never even met,but we seem to connect with and rely on daily for uplifting post,creative projects,helpful hints and positive feel good moments,sometimes we blog with life's realities and may even shed a tear,but that's life ain't it!!....we have to have the sad moments to make us realize the happy one's...thanks for the opportunity to know you.

What I love about blogging is that some friends/followers have to ask if it is open for people all over the world. Is that just fantastic?!

Buttercup said...

I love blogging because I can get to know about so many different people and their lifestyles from all walks of life that I might not have the opportunity to do so in real life. It is fun to learn different cultures, traditions, and to get to know so many wonderful people like you, Sandie!

such a great giveaway you are doing and such a great person you are! I hope Sunday is a good one!

Love your blog. I think blogging is a great way to meet people and it is also therapeutic.

Mevely317 said...

You KNEW I'd be here, right? (Tee-hee!)
I've said it before and will again -- yours and others' "spots of sunshine" are better than any psycho-therapists!

I am fairly new to you but felt that kindred spirit thing right away. These warmers are a great way to extend the use of a candle. I love them.

Writing is cathartic for me and bloggin gives me a chance to write. Hi this is Munir over here at Focus. Also I met someone as awesome as you among my other blogger friends.

Marydon said...

Favicon ... 'splain. Congrats tho. Angela is a peach of a friend.

Blogging is a bonding of friends, life events & sharing philosophy & christianity for me. I'd have never met you otherwise, sweet friend. See how blessed I am ...

Have a beautiful week.
TTFN ~
Hugs of love,

Blogging... I have been blogging for 7 months...the thing I love most about it...is all the friends I have meet!

Angela said...

Oh Sandie, you are so welcome for your favicon! You are such a good friend! You are the best girl! It appears that most don't know what the little icon is called. I'm sure they have noticed it. I think it is just darling and goes perfect with your blog. I can't believe I missed your giveaway today. I've been so busy today with lots of things. Please don't enter me in this one because I don't use candles because of my allergies.

Love,
Angela

Good Morning, Sandie,
I agree with Crystal Mary. I am STARRY...
I am not here for a gift. I am here to express my friendship love for you, Sandie.
What I love about blogging is the fact that blogging and writing are therapy for my soul.
I also love to communicate with lovely folks like yourself worldwide.
God keeps blessing you, sweet Sandie.
Love in Christ,
Poet Starry Dawn.
