Last year, on March 17th, I blogged for the very first time.
In honor of my one year blogaversary, I will celebrate with an extra special wool candle mat giveaway.
However, I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had the time to MAKE the giveaway candle mat yet, so I think I’ll show you the process of making it and then once it’s finished, I’ll give it away!
How’s that sound? Good. I knew you’d like that idea.
So let’s get started first with a little trivia question contest….
Here is a stack of some freshly hand-dyed wools. Green, purple and golden yellow.
I will use these three colors in the candle mat that I will be making for the giveaway.
This will be the 6th year that I’ve used the golden yellow and purple colors to make a certain something. I’m fairly well known for making this and it’s always around this time of year that I start. Anyone who looks around my blog should easily be able figure out what it is that I will be making.
TRIVIA QUESTION: What specifically will I be making with these three colors??
The first 5 people who answer this correctly will get one extra entry in the Giveaway!
You must comment in this post to win the extra entry. I can’t accept emailed answers. If you don’t have a blog, you can still comment as “anonymous” just be sure to mention your name.
I hope to have the giveaway the week after Easter sometime, so be sure to keep watch for the official Giveaway announcement.
I’ll be asking more trivia questions throughout the making of this candle mat so you all will have more chances to collect extra entries.
Ok, Car Shopping is halted until after Easter. I’m having all the relatives/family over at our house on Sunday so I MUST get Spring cleaning done to get ready.
Hubby did come with me for a little car shopping on Saturday, but we went over the instructions first so that we would not be snagged up in the salesmen’s clutches.
I’m glad this time that he did go with me because hubby knew the salesman at the Ford dealer that we stopped at.
This salesman is a college football buddy. Perfect! College football buddies have a very special bond. I’m pretty sure we will get a terrific deal on the Fusion if I decide that is the car that I want. They even have the car that matches up with my needs, plus a few extra things like a remote start and some sensors on the back bumper that will BEEP BEEP to let me know that I will be backing into something if I don’t stop in a millisecond.
I know how I am … I’ll be backing up the vehicle, hear the beep beeping and wonder, “what the heck is that beeping sound?” and still back into whatever it is that is in my way.
Mind you, I’ve never backed into anything … except my son-in-law’s car or my husbands brand spanking new Harley motorcycle .
OK …. ONLY TWO TIMES in 37 years of driving have I ever backed into anything and I didn’t even cause much damage but do you think “some” people will ever let me forget it? :)
Hmm .. thinking about this, all of my mishaps in my car have been on my own driveway.
I do admit that running down a brand new Harley was pretty horrific. The bike was sitting pretty on the drive, hubby was standing on the porch watching me slowly back out of the garage and right into his bike, knocking it over onto the cement drive. The results were only one small scratch on the motorcycle but one large scar is embedded in my husband’s brain because he sees it happen in slow motion anytime he thinks about it. Hahaha … actually hubby was screaming “STOP” just like the beep beeping of the sensors on the Fusion to warn me, but did I stop? Nope.
I think that perhaps the bumper sensors might be an option that is wasted money.
Gosh, I neeeeed to get away from this computer. I was only going to type about the giveaway and my fingers just kept going on and on and on.
Happy Day everyone!
