500th Blog! TIME'S UP!!!!!!!!

Well, actually this post will make 503, but who's counting?!! I was going to carefully watch for the 500th and I let it slip by with no fanfare.

So today is make-up day! Yes, a give-away!

Just leave a comment here before Saturday 6/28/08, 5:00 p.m. Pacific time, and you'll be entered in a drawing to win a jelly roll of your choice from The Fat Quarter Shop!

I'll bet you're surprised that I picked The Fat Quarter Shop, aren't you? LOL Well, there are several good reasons I chose Kimberly's shop:

1) They have a GREAT selection of jelly rolls to choose from!

2) The packages are always sent out so promptly and the customer service is impeccable!

3) The Fat Quarter Shop is MY favorite place to shop!

4) The staff has my debit card number commited to memory! In fact, it's probably framed and hanging on a wall in the building that's been dedicated just to me! LOL

Seriously, though ... I'm just kidding about that framing thing. I mean, I hope I'm kidding. I really don't order THAT much from them, do I? Do I? Don't answer that!!

There's only one rule - you MUST leave your name, a link to your blog, an email address, or some way for me to contact you if you win.

Good luck to everyone!

And thank you for stopping by to visit! It's been a ton of fun getting to know you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TIME'S UP! The winner will be announced on a new entry in a few minutes! Thanks to everyone to joined in the fun! Good luck!!

Happy blogiversary. And Jellyrolls are yummy!!!

Vickie E said...

I'd like to be as "good" of a stash buster as Judy L...but let's face it...I'm not! So put my name in the drawing too. I am a big buyer of the FQ shop too...and I got a Christmas card last year...boy did I get heck for that...but you probably got gifts from them LOL!! But that's ok...I like to see that someone else is buying fabric out there. Then I don't feel so bad when people comment that I buy 'too many' books ....or punch too many buttons. I also just try to think "they're jealous"!
