It Pays to Comment


Several weeks ago, I got an email from Jane at Sew Create It!. She told me I won her drawing. I did? How? She had an unannounced drawing and picked from her commenters during a certain time frame. I won. This lovely assortment arrived via Royal Post onto my doorstep.

It is funny to get those patterns because all four of them originated in a city only 10 miles from me. *smile* She sent me 100 5" blue squares that she cut using her GO! cutter and those preprinted labels will come in handy for all the donation quilts that I've been making. The journal will be used, yes indeedy. I am a journaler and I ignore lines and paint, paste and glue all over my journals sometimes including the cover. So Jane, be aware that this journal will not look like it does now because I have a habit of altering them.
And of course, chocolate. What would life be like without chocolate? Do you see the white one that has LAVAND.. on it? That word is lavender and it is a lavender flavored chocolate bar. I like it, but then I have made and eaten lavender flavored jelly. 

So just be aware, my peeps, that when you least expect it, you too may win something just by commenting on a blog post.

  5. How fun! You made this giving and winning a real joy in the sharing part. What a great way to thank Jane. She is such a delight and I'm glad you posted this uniquely. A little more to this post than photos with a few words. No. Not here. Here we have a delightful read. That's gratitude!!!

  6. Glad you liked everything...I wasn't sure about the Lavender chocolate, but it sounds like you are a lover of lavender already...Buying that for you ended up being a lucky guess ;o)

  7. A surprise giveaway is a great idea. You get authentic people who care about you and your post, and not simply the chance of winning. Congrats on your win.
