It's a Win/Win kinda Saturday!


I bet you all thought I forgot about the Alphabe-Thursday giveaway.

Geez. As if. Would I ever do something like that...???

OK, I did.


Or what's that they say now? Oh yea, "My Bad!"

But since I actually looked at my calendar a little bit ago and saw my note that said "Remember Alphabe-Thursday Giveaway!"... here I am now.

So... J had 70 links, K had 67, L had 70 and M had 80...which is a grand total of... hmmm.... add the five carry the two...

287 entries in the drawing!

And, your favorite fella and mine, Mr. Random Org, tells me that this is the lucky winner:

True Random Number Generator

Min: 1
Max: 287

Which corresponds with K is for Kumquat! So...Miss Fudge Ripple! Will you e-mail me at: jennymatlock at cox dot net as soon as you can and we'll see which prize you prefer!


And my second win of the day?

It's this!

This is Sandy at 521 Lake Street...

She has the neatest blog and somehow we started e-mailing and she told me she was doing a craft show and I said "I wish I could come" and she said "yea, that would be fun" and I said "well, gee, where do you live?" and she said "Arizona" and, as it turns out...we live in the same town.

The craft show started at 7 am and Mr. Jenny, good sport that he is, got up and went with me...and I told my daughter about it and she and her husband met us there!

And I had the best time.

Sandy is lovely and wonderful and talented.

And I met two other new friends there that were lovely and talented and friendly and cool, too!

So I had a fabulous morning...bought a ton of cool stuff for me and for gifts..and for a possible future giveaway if I can actually part with it...

And I am just happy...

Because not only did I remember what I forgot last night...

But I won't forget to remember that I have some new, awesome friends in Arizona!

And a trunk full of cool stuff! My life is complete now. Treasures. New friends. And a beautiful Saturday full of possibilities!

Hey Jenny...It is so great that you won the raffle at the Creative Bliss craft fair. I left early, as Sandy didn't need any help, but had a good time while there.

I really enjoyed meeting you and look forward to our blogging future.
