My first Giveaway

I wanted to repost my first giveaway. I have gotten several emails from people that are having a hard time posting to blogs. So here it is, I hope everyone that wanted to can get to enter.
If you can't post and you email me that you would like to enter and are following my blog, I will keep those emails separate and still enter you. Blogger will hopefully get the issues fixed.

I think it is about time I got in gear and did my first giveaway. I keep saying to myself, "do it tonight" but then life sucks me in and I forget. Erma Bombeck wrote about me in her books. Or at least that is how I feel sometimes.

I want to say thank you to all the wonderful people I have "met" since blogging. It is so great having people to talk to and share ideas with that have similar interests. I have learned and laughed a lot in the past few months.
So now for the details.
1. You must be a follower, new followers welcome
2. Leave a comment on this post saying you'd like to be entered
3. If you post on your sidebar or do a post on your blog I will give you an extra entry.
4. You must live in the USA, for at least my first giveaway.  
5. If you post your favorite quote I will give you an extra entry. 

My favorite quote:

To be in your children's memories tomorrow
You have to be in their lives today.

I will leave it open until June 19th and drawing on June 20th. That will give me time to add other items to my drawing. 
I hope everyone is having a great week.
Again, thank you everyone for all you share.


  1. I am a new follower and would love to be entered in your giveawa. I love your board display. I will post it on my sidebar also.

So dust calm down, cobwebs go to sleep, I am rocking my baby and babies don't keep" !
    I love to write this in my cards for baby showers. Hugs, Lecia
