I love this necklace - purple is my fave color! So, I would dearly love to win it! Thanks so much for the opportunity and for making such a lovely piece to give away! Congrats on 300!!! A funny thing about me is, though I'm a "boring old mom," I've been to several Metallica concerts and many comic book conventions!

Laurie said...

I'm already a happy follower of your wonderful blog!

Tanya said...

The necklace is lovely! I'd love to win, so here's a little something odd about me: my toenails curl upwards, so I have to keep the super short or I shred my socks. Just what you needed to know!

Tanya said...

And of course I'm a follower! Happy 300!

I don't know how fun this fact is, but hey it is worth a shot....I have never eaten a squash..of any sort. I just think they look creepy and smell funky and mostly they are orange---that seems weird to me. At this time of year I take a lot of guff, but mostly you can live without squash with no problems.

I came across your blog today searching for fun lego birthday party ideas for my almost 5 year old son Owen (my fun fact)! I am so inspired by the lego party you had for your son Owen. I can't wait to get started! I also am enjoying the rest of your posts and now am a follower :)

Jessica said...

So stinkin adorable! Thanks for the chance to win.
I totally just stumbled across your blog recently and love it. I'm jealous of your awesome garage sale finds - really, not fair! And loved learning about how to hem since I'm such a short girl and always have problems finding jeans that fit.
Fun fact about me? Here's one to get you laughing: I have a very strange fear of rabid deer hooving me to death. Seriously. Because if it were to happen (which, the hooving part does, at least), then I wouldn't be surprised if it happened to me. Better to be safe. Oh, yeah: I live in the Colorado Rockies and see deer several times a week. Awesome, right? Don't worry - it's OK if you laugh. I do too. :P

Jessica said...

Oh - I follow, too.
Enjoy your week =D

Here's my fun fact: My two kids just started school last week (youngest is in school all day for the first time!) and I've started following a number of craft blogs, including yours, because I finally have time for myself, except I don't between PTA, soccer, dance, Room mom stuff and church, I'm busier than I was when the little one was home, but a girl can dream. The necklace is beautiful.

My mother is an English teacher and she spoke with me only in English till I was three years old. Then she stopped and I forgot everything, of course. I taughed myself English again when I was 19 years old by reading books in English.

Hello! Love the necklace. My "fun" fact is that I have IBS and certain foods make me sick, mainly dairy - BUT, I still use ranch dressing & eat chocolate, because heaven knows I'll never give those up!

Stopping in from NFF! Love the necklace...it's so cute! I used to say that I don't have a creative muscle in my body, but I realized that it's one of those muscles that I didn't know was there. I have it, but it's WEAK ... very weak! I'm trying to exercise it, but I know I have a long way to go! ;-)

Looking forward to exploring your blog a bit ... and crossing my fingers for a chance to win your beautiful necklace!
