Happy Day... and the number 100

Hi Everyone,

I do not know what was wrong with me yesterday but... phew I am glad it is over. If you didn't read it DON'T. I still think that the Sizzix is a great deal. Especially if you get the new one becuase all kinds of dies fit in it. I just bought the older one so of course it didn't work perfectly with the new fangled stuff :) Silly me. I am still super excited about it and having a great time playing with it.

Today is my 100th post ... it took me long enough huh? Well, I can't always think of interesting things to say and I hate to drone on and bore everyone. I have two fun prizes to give away for my happy 100th.

First as hinted at before:


Six fat quarters of this lovely Anna Maria fabric. One of each of the fabrics you see here.

Second in an attempt to share my joy of all things Sizzix:



This Sizzix Sidekick (Hello Kitty dontcha love it?) some adhesive
shantung textured papers (to make stickers), and the snowflake die I
demonstrated before (you could make snowflake stickers for your Chritmas card
 seals). I don't think the little one will cut fabric but
you are welcome to try.

We will have two winners and the first winner will get the fabric, the second the Sidekick.

The only rule for this is that you leave a comment on this post (you will want to give me a way to contact you too). You don't have to follow me or do anything else. I wanted this to be for just those who like me enough to hang around even when I am not being profound :) I will pick a winner on Saturday morning. Comments are open until midnight Pacific Time on Friday 10-15.

Thanks for all the comments. Thanks for the friendship. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hugs!
Julie

Ps: I am now a follower of all my followers...duh...why didn't I think of that before. Those who's personal blogs I couldn't find I am not following. let me know what your blogs are and I will add you.

Your post are always very profound! I love the blogs from real people who talk about real everyday issues and that's always interesting. It's a little peek into other people's lives. Congratulations on your 100th post!

Is it a coincidence that I have been dreaming about a design with snowflakes ... and trying to figure out how I can easily cut those intricate shapes?

Seriously, never apologize for expressing yourself. I think blogging is best when it is an honest reflection of the author.

Hey Julie;
We all have days like that - don't sweat it. I love reading all the personalities that come through in blogs, and you are great. Keep on, keepin' on.

I'll read you not being profound, if you'll read me not being profound! Actually, I really enjoy your blog - keep up the good work and congratulations on your 100th post!

I've been following you for some time now, but perhaps it is just through google reader. Is it really necessary to say something profound when you've got pictures of Rome? I think not; jealousy abounds! Remember when your hubby bought the Rowenta iron? That was such a funny and loving story! Keep 'em comin' sista, keep 'em comin'!!

Woohoo congrats on your 100th post! I loved your post on the Sizzix, I am a Sizzix lover from way back, but can understand the disappointment that comes from being absolutely super excited about buying something only to find that it doesn't do exactly what you though it would! It's still great, but it's not super-duper-dance-in-the-rain-in-summer great.

Wow congrats on 100 posts! I haven't had the guts to start a blog. Not sure what I would write about anyway! I sure do love reading them, though and have added yours to my reader.

Thanks for the chance to win these goodies!

Congrats on your bloggy milestone, Julie! I am dying to get some Innocent Crush, but I have to purchase some Christmas gift supplies first and hope I have enough funds leftover :)

I enjoy reading blogs that talk about what the person is doing, instead of promoting a shop or fabric or whatever. I love that you are not hung up on Accuquilt Go. I've never heard of a Sissex before but hey I bet it works just fine.
