Is this thing on? Anyone still out there?
I’m firing up the old blog, b/c I saw this great idea at Duckygirl’s and I wanted to play along. I love the idea of actual real thoughtful items that you can see and touch. These are the kind of fun connections that have been such a bloggy blessing to me. So, I hope there are still 5 of you out there who would like to play.
The first FIVE people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It’ll be done this year. (might be a little while)
- You have no clue what it’s going to be.It may be a story. It may be poetry, shoes, bags, or a little invention of my own! I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that’s for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. Believe me… it may blow your mind!
The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! Sounds like fun, right? So, let’s play!
I feel like I should explain my long bloggy silence, but I don’t really have any explanation other than trying to figure out how FB relates to blogging relates to Twitter relates to the rest of my life and my desire to actually parent my children, read other actual books, and participate in Bible study. So, we’ll just go on from here, eh?
But, while I’m at it, I feel that I should tell you that that sweet little want list down there…the one that’s been sucking up the bloggy space during the long silence…went dreadfully wrong somewhere along the line. Once the toy catalogs came, they were basically cut up and reassembled into one long, giant, unobtainable, thoughtless, greedy blob of want list. (Of course). No, I did not document it; I finally recycled it last week. Who wants to remember that in their old age? It was not pretty, people.
I should also let you know that I have decided to fast from FB and Twitter, and thus blog reading and writing during the Lenten season. So, I’m afraid it’s gon’ be dark here again in a few weeks. Now go live your life. And let me send you something pretty.
