I'm just like a child! Candy winner!

Zoe September 27, 2010 60

Hi everyone,

I don’t know about you but I have trouble sleeping when I am excited. I’m just like a child on my birthday and Christmas. My birthday because I love prezzies – teehee and Christmas because I get so excited about giving prezzies. I think I enjoy it more seeing their faces when they open them than receiving prezzies.

Anyway… with my birthday technically being today but I can’t count it until I go to sleep and wake up again, I decided I would draw the winner of the CANDY!!

AND the winner is….. chosen by random.org (I still can’t figure out the timestamp thingy) but…

The number came up as 41!

And that just so happens to be – RubyM!

Congratulations Ruby!

Please contact me with your address using the contact form and I’ll send off your goodies!!

PLUS!! I hit 500 followers today! woohooo…. Now that is an awesome Birthday wish! heehe

I think a little surprise is in order for one lucky commenter who wishes me a Happy Birthday today. Make me laugh!! Some jokes would be fun, or how about a riddle or rhyme? heehee now that was sleep deprivation creeping in!

Thank you so much for your support everyone. This has been a wonderful adventure so far this year and I am so thankful to have made many friends that I can share my special day with in blogland!

I have many more things to come so I hope you contine to stay around and enjoy the ride with me.

Hugs and I hope you have a very special day too.



P.S: Was brought to my attention that you might like to know I am 31 today! πŸ™‚Β  Not so hard to say this year. Didn’t like turning 30 last year. heehee

    Funny, some people are bothered by getting older. I’m always glad I’ve survived another year and am grateful I don’t have to do them over again, LOL! Maybe someday I’ll find a birthday that bothers me, but it hasn’t happened yet and I’m 43.
    BTW, I finally bought a laser printer so I could print out the lovely images I got from you and spent a chunk of Friday night assembling a scene and printing it. Now I just have to figure out what I’m going to colour it in with. I’ve printed several copies so I can experiment with different mediums. So I guess my “gift” to you is the knowledge that you’ve managed to finally get me to try using not only digi images, but ones that require colouring (my regular stamps aren’t that kind).
    Anyway, Happy Birthday and congrats on reaching the 500 followers.

    A couple have not been getting along for years, so the husband thinks, “I’ll buy my wife a cemetery plot for her birthday.” Well, you can imagine her disappointment. The next year, her birthday rolls around again and this time he doesn’t get her anything. She says, “Why didn’t you get me a birthday present!?” He replies, “You didn’t use what I got you last year!”

    Happy Birthday!!

    Happy Birthday! 31 is the number of days in October, so for each day of October you should try and find a memory of a past year… Then at the end of the month, you’ll be able to say “I’m one month old!”

    You are very talented with copic markers. The Tilda-card is so lovely colored. Congratulations with your birthday. Hope you have much fun πŸ™‚ Remember age is just a number πŸ™‚
    A little poem, made by me right now,for you:
    “A scrapping girl turns thirty-one today.
    She wears here years with pride,they say.
    She is a creative soul with much to do.
    Making lovely cards and blogging,too.
    And in blogland we hope to see you for very long;
    May be when you are eighty and still going strong.”
    Hope you enjoyed it πŸ™‚ Have a nice day.

    On the birthday greetings from us – it`s one!
    We send your kind words – it’s two!
    Be all the time ahead – three!
    To live in friendship with all, in the world – this, it seems, four!
    Do not despair – it’s five!
    Multiply all that is – it’s six!
    Be attentive to all – it’s seven!
    Always be in a normal weight – is eight, nine, ten!
    Everything else in the bargain – happiness, joy, good luck!

    Hey Zoe, I’m reading a book about anti-gravity. It’s impossible to put down.
    Hey Zoe,Did you hear about the guy whose whole left side was cut off? He’s all right now.
    Hey Zoe, I was going to look for my missing watch, but I could never find the time.
    Hey Zoe, A hungry traveller stops at a monastery and is taken to the kitchens. A brother is frying chips. ‘Are you the friar?’ he asks. ‘No. I’m the chip monk,’ he replies.

    I can go all day….LOL Hope at least one of them made you smile. Stacy H-W

    Five-hundred followers and on your birthday! Congratulations on the big number and the little number! πŸ™‚ I read through a few of the comments and, from the ones I read, I am the only one not afraid to say I am way ahead of you in the birthday department! Forty-five and counting!

    I hope your birthday was a special day full of love, life and laughter!
