I Won! I Won!

(Jumping up and down, jumping up and down, jumping, jumping... out of breath, out of breath, out of breath...)

I NEVER win things. Ever. But this time I did, I did! Rocks in My Dryer started this crazy idea where bloggers would sign up to give away something. Anything! Really. There were bloggers who gave away gift certificates to Amazon, Starbucks, Target, Walmart, and even CVS. Some gave away jewelry, handmade and otherwise; some gave food such as chocolate, home-roasted coffee and yummy mixes; some gave away handmade cards, soaps, scrapbooking items or bookmarks; some gave away baby gear like slings, diaper bags, and burpies; some gave bath, makeup or hair care items; many gave away favorite books and CDs; some shared their techie know-how with custom blog and photo card design offers; and others shared their talents with items they knitted, crocheted or sewed themselves. All for FREE, shipping included! Yes, for once, there really is such a thing as a free lunch. So, of course I entered. And entered. And entered.

And, most unbelievably, I WON SOMETHING! Wonders will never cease. Rachel at Belle Texanne is going to custom make me a hat and scarf. In red. Isn't that fabulous? Thank you, Rachel!!

Next time around, I will have to give this some thought and have something ready to add to the pot myself. This time, about all I have here are piles of paper, dirty laundry and leftover Halloween candy, and really, who needs any more of any of that? But now I have a pretty red hat and scarf coming. Yippee!

There are still a number of giveaways that don't close until Sunday or even later, so head on over and look around!
