Blog Candy Coming Monday!

First, dear friends and followers, I want to thank you so much for hanging with me the last month or so while I've been traveling with dear hubby, and not getting around to your blogs. Some of you have been so faithful, never missing a single post. I feel so special, having friends that visit me, when I've been unable to return the visit! I would imagine by the end of next month, the weather will change, and I'll be back to normal, but thank you very much for continuing to drop by.
I took a short walk a while ago, and peeps, this day is just delightful. It's 81 degrees, but there's a gorgeous breeze blowing, and right now, not a cloud in the sky. I hear that will change tonight!

It will be a busy weekend at our house! We'll get home tonight, probably mid-night-ish. Tomorrow will be a Homecoming Parade in our little town. The school is having a special celebration of 50 years of Homecoming Queens. DD was queen in 1999, so we'll get to watch her celebrate again! How much fun! We have a little convertible car, and her dad will shine it up tomorrow and drive her. There is also some sort of recognition at the evening football game. I'll be sure to get a couple of pics to post tomorrow night...
ON TO BLOG CANDY!!!
I think that since my blog will be two years old, that I should have 2 candies...what do you think? Maybe a big candy for followers, and a small candy for others? That way no one will feel obligated to become a follower???

Wow! I can't believe that my little old blog, that started out as a way for our kids to keep up with a bathroom remodel, has evolved into what it has, and that it will be two years old TOMORROW! Wowzers!

Tune in tomorrow to see what you can win!
For an extra chance to win, leave a comment today telling me where you would like to shop if you were to win a gift card!!! (Feel free to mention your favorite on-line shops!)
Happy Thursday,
Hugs and blessings to all!!!
Patti J.
PS - Does anyone know why this flippin' blogger won't let me space between sentences? I've done and redone this 6 times now! It looks perfect when I save and is all glumped together when I post! UGH...

2yrs... wowzers GF! I thought you'd been bloggin for-evver! Let's see there's 7kids college fund, and Simon says Stamp and Hobby Lobby and Artful INKables and Carpe Deim and Crop Chocolate ... I could go on for ever and ever! Have a great day!

Patti P. said...

Congrats on your anniversary and I hope that tomorrow is beautiful and lots of fun for all of you. I am really glad that you and DH are having so much fun...that is what is important, do the things you enjoy.
I like all things stamping so it would be hard to pick one place, but I have not ever bought anything from Papertrey Ink, have you? They have beautiful things.
Take care and hope your trip home is safe.

Blogger has been naughty lately, thought it was me.
Happy Blogaversary sweetie.
I am thrilled to stop in anytime I can, I would still stop even if you don't ever stop by mine. I enjoy our friendship so much.
My favorite place to shop right now is Die Cuts R Us because I get great paper and Copics there.

Rufus said...

I'm right here with you! Welcome home and congrats to DD for getting to be a Home Coming Queen all over again. Something tells me that Dad is going to get a kick out of driving her in the parade! Can't wait to see the pic's. As to where I shop, anyplace that has what I want for a good price! In other words lots of places, LOL.

Glittered Paws said...

Wish we didn't have to go to STL and not for a fun trip - but I know you will take nice pics at the parade. Hmm...my favorite place to shop - any crafting store with my BFF!!! And we often shop over the internet together too!!! Now I wonder who that could be???

Hey Patti J! It was weird this week you not "hounding" me about it being Wednesday! LOL And I get the post up on time (even early) and you didn't show! Whatever!!!! LOL You and I are fairly close in blog anniversaries. My two year was back in April. Like others, I have tons of places I like to shop. Gina K Designs and Creative Playstamps would be my first two choices. Hope you are well! Best, Curt

Pam S. said...

I pick All That Scraps for my favorite store! I use wordpress for my blog. When I decided to finally blog, my daughters said they would only help me if I used wordpress. They had all tried blogger and switched to WP. I've had to use blogger for one DT and it is bad... wordpress and typepad are much better...not sure why more gals don't use wordpress... oops... this got long! sorry! : )

Congrats on this great milestone. I hope you enjoy it as much now as you did when you first started.

I use live writer to do my blog posts. It allows me to get around blogger's wonky formatting issues. Check it out.

Hugs!

Lynne in NI said...

I reckon if I was lucky enough to win I'd treat myself to some new copic markers ... so it would be wherever had the best deal on at the time!

Sue W said...

Well I'm running late as usual these days!!!!!
Just don't seem to be able to keep up at the moment!
Patti is it 2 years? I thought you must have been blogging long before me. I think I 'met' you on TMITA and STV or it could have been PCP......I know I always stopped to take in your beautiful creations.
OMG let's face it, there are so many places to buy stamps and paper crafting goodies. I'm enjoying Waltzingmouse at the moment Claire is lovely and treats everyone the same! Though I have just tried some LOTV stamps which are too cute for words. I started with Blogger and to tell the truth I couldn't face changing everything so for now I'm staying put!

Brenda said...

Wow congrats on 2 years of blogging!!!! You know my favorite online store is GKD, but I have just discovered Krafin' Kimmie Stamps so I love them to.

Patti sorry I have still haven't been around much. I just can't seem to get to motivated to blog and stamp much these days.

Giovana said...

Congrats again Patti! My favorite online store is GKD and also Heartfel Creations :)
Thanks so much for your generosity.
