Happy 100 to me!

To celebrate my 100th post and all the fame I've received (har har, snort!), I am holding my very first contest!

Aren't ya sooo excited, ecstatic, elated?!!
Aren't I so silly? I love finding adjectives that begin with the same letter! And I really love ending my sentences with exclamation points!!!

Okay, there was that one other contest, but I was partnering with my "fairy blogmother" as she is so rightly named. Speaking of that gal, I owe much thanks to Darcy over at Graphically Designing for the transformation of my previously blah blog into this hip and fashionable space! She's become so famous now, I can hardly keep up with her! But, I got to shmooze with her and tell her she rocks and she never once made me feel like an imbecile even when I revealed my computer un-savviness to her.

Sooooo... what is the prize, you wonder?
What better to bestow upon you than a very special piece of gorgeousness from my Collection of jewels! And, because I'm so nice, I'm giving you a choice between delicate gold with Swarovski crystals and grape cubic zirconia orrrrrrr dainty silver with blue chalcedony drops and mini crystals.

How are you going to win, you wonder?
By leaving me loads of comment lovin'! And that means even YOU, you lurkers out there who read about my life and never say a bloomin' thing! You must like me if you keep coming back... so, tell me! ;-D Even if it's as simple as, "Hi, you're cool".
And, no, you don't have to have a Google account to comment on my blog, just sign in as "Anonymous", but don't really be anon, at least sign your name, or I'm not sure how you'll win.

The contest will end Wednesday the 12th at midnight (PST), at which time some random generator (or my 6 year old) will choose from the list of commenters! I will post the winner Thursday the 13th and then said winner and I will work out the delivery of goods details.

Are you game?!!! Let's do this!
Now go show me some lovin'! ;-D

#1 rarely gets picked but oh well!!! I love your blog and your writings. I am glad you have added this venture to your life, because it is a blessing to others.

Youthful One said...

That came around so quickly!


Oh my dear Christa Jean, I'm so delighted you have entered the blogosphere and let us all in on your insides and outs. I have SO enjoyed seeing your closet, your kids'-eye-view of the yard, your hair transformations, your creative designing, your dark days, your musings, and your delights. You truly have enriched us all - not just by knowing you, but by getting to know the parts we would never see hidden inside that beautiful face.

Thank you for blessing us all.

Here's to the next 100 posts - and beyond!

P.S. I ADORE the shape of the wires on the grape earrings!!! I'm guessing you can do the same with other colors too? Those silver & blue ones will certainly go well with most everything I wear. ;-)

Tiffany said...

I love the shape of the grape earrings too. And one of mine is lost of the set I have:( But I also love the blue ones.

And sorry Lurkers, but I hope someone who is a regular commenter (me) gets the goods:)

Darcy @ LWM3B said...

Awwww! You are so generous, and since I already own a pair of your beautiful yellow dangles, I can testify to the goodness and prettiness of things you make

Me? Famous? phhhsssst. Hardly. ;) I'm still little ol' me. Just a little bit busier. ;)

*hugs* to you and yours.


ps - I bet I can send some traffic your way.

Blessed Mama of 4 said...

Wowza~!!! Since you said it, I had to wonder... how many posts I've had, and with out realizing it my last post was #100!! Its like we celebrate our birthday together or something....

OF course, I don't think I'll do a contest, I don't have anything cool to give away. And, I want to stick with the imagery... my #100 post was titled "Lazy Mom of 4"...

I live one the other side of the international date line. So you have to have a redrawing, redoo, especially since I have to adjectives in a row with the same letter. I like to end my sentences, that doesn't mean guess...I like...check your email.

Okay it's too late now...but I read your thoughts darling sista Christa.
[Two days for a contest??? Come on...some of us aren't on here THAT often..even when we didn't just have a baby. You should've run it one week!!] ;)
