Blog Candy is Closed

I'd like to thank everyone who is participating in my blog candy.  I actually reached 100 followers too!  Thank you!!!!   

I'm closing it and can't wait to see who wins.  The box is packed with the goodies (and a few little extras).  I'll announce the winner on Wednesday in my WOYWW post.  I'm hoping that I can get the random selector to work..... if not I'll have a co-worker draw a name on Tuesday.

This past year has been full of highs and lows.  One of the highlights is meeting everyone through this thing called blogs.  My life has been so enriched - in every aspect.  Thank you all for being a part of that.  May we have many more years of sharing.

Today has been a lazy day.  I hired someone to clean up the front area (11 bags of pine needles and pine cones) and it looks so much better.  The Shred It truck is in town so I went through old records and took a bag for shredding.  For those that aren't familiar with the Shred It truck; it's a huge truck with a heavy duty double cross shredder in it.  There is no charge and they shred whatever you bring them - as much as you want.  I usually have bad timing and miss when they are in town.  

Now I'm sitting in Starbucks where there is air conditioning, typing this post and drinking a lemon drink.  Yum.  Yep, life is good.

Congratulations on reaching 100 followers! I am not surprised though, your blog is fab, creative and fun! I am glad you are having a lovely day and enjoying your lemon drink, sounds yummy! I'm with you in spirit! Not sure about shredding records though - my husband is a collector - he would quake at the thought! Have a fab rest of the day. xx

I could do with one of those shredders ( I am thinking of all the things I could put in it . . . but shouldn't!!!) Enjoy your relax time

Hi Kay, congrats on reaching 100 followers, I have just reached 100 too!! I am like you, my life has been enriched by meeting other bloggers too. That shredder truck sounds like a brilliant idea, I have not heard of those before and doubt we have them here in the UK. Hope you are keeping cool! Crafty hugs, Anne x

Hi Kay congratulations from me as well on reaching 100 followers. Could have done with a shredder truck a couple of weeks ago. Had loads to shred and it took ages in my little shredder. A lemon drink sounds delish. Anne x
