Celebrations

It's that time of year again!

Saturday, 2/11, is my sixth blogging anniversary - but more importantly, it's Penny's THIRD birthday! Hard to believe "Slick" is three already. Yep, that's her nickname - along with "Punk" and whatever else seems to fit at the moment.

No pictures this morning. She would have none of that!

This will be a quick give-away. Drawing will be held at 6:00'ish p.m. California time tomorrow night, Saturday 2/11.

Just leave a comment and you'll be entered into the drawing. Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you.

Oh, yeah -- I almost forgot!

The give-away will be $60 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop! Yep, you read that right. 6-0. Cuz that's how old I am....... I didn't think anyone would want a $3 gift certificate to celebrate Penny's age!

Happy Birthday to Penny and the blog! Our pets also have lots of nicknames. Funny, how that works when you don't have 'real' kids. Who says my kids aren't real?!!

Sharon said...

Happy Bday to Miss P. I do like that nickname, Slick! You've shared so much on your blog, I really enjoy it! Here's to another year of fabric and quilts and puppies!

Quiltin' LibraryLady said...

Happy B-Day, Penny and congratulations, Vicky, on six years of blogging. As for you being the big 6-0, I'll hit that number on my birthday in May. Hey, 60 is the new 40, right? Yeah, I don't think so either. 60 means getting older, but hey, a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop could make me FEEL younger. I look and drool, mostly.

Deb said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PENNY! My doxies will be 7-Molly and 5-Max in June. Hard to believe they're getting that old! We have nicknames for them too, Molly is also sissy, can't remember why, but she does answer to it, and we call Max, maxer! Love those pooches! Congrats on your blogging too, I love to read your blog.

mascanlon said...

Congratulations on 6 years! I hadn't even heard of blogging that long ago. I think I'm behind the times. True confession - I've never sent a text message!

More importantly, Happy Birthday to Penny! Even if they haven't been with us that long in terms of years, they certainly do fill up our lives. It's hard to imagine life before them and she certainly looks like a sweetie!
