What can I say - I'm not the most timely person on the planet.
Oh, don't get me wrong; I hate being late for set appointments.
I am, for the most part, an on time girl.
Folks that show up late for things drive me absolutely crazy.
Don't they care enough about the other person's time to be punctual?
The drive to be punctual only seems to apply to events in which my physical presence is required; parties, doctor's appointments, parties, meetings, and parties.
This drive (which I blame on growing up as an Army brat) to be on time Terri has never translated to other areas of my life.
Deadlines I don't do.
I can't for the life of me get a card mailed on time - even though I set my calender to remind me well in advance.
I can't seem to make something for someone early enough for the gift to be timely. Believe me, I THINK about it months ahead of time.
I just don't DO it.
The physical act of doing something early enough for it to make sense is just one of my many freak of nature nuances.
It's sad, really.
If I had actually mailed all the people whom I thought about sending a card to I could have single handedly kept the U.S. Post Office in the black.
Deadlines are not my friend.
So, what's all this blubbering about?
Well, I said in my last post that I'd post about my thank you giveaway last week.
What can I say?
I set a deadline and I missed it.
But, if you've hung on this long, here it is:
This is part of it anyway.
The Ann Sandles Sampler pattern
A Longaberger basket with liner, protector and lid
3 skeins of NPI floss
Sajou Paris expandable, miniature book No. 2
2 vintage tape measures
Small tomato pin cushion
vintage salt shaker with buttons
4 vintage clothes pins wrapped with scrap booking ribbon
4 vintage skeleton keys
A vintage screwdriver and oil can (great for punch-needle bases)
and of course, chocolate (not pictured)!!! YUM!!!
And, who knows what else I might add by the time I get around to drawing a winner.
So, are you interested?
If so, please leave a comment on this post only.
This is a thank you giveaway to those of you that have chosen to follow this
little blog of mine.
Truly, thank you so very much!
I'm humbled and honored that you're here.
I'm even more humbled, and I do truly feel honored and blessed, when you leave a comment for me.
It takes time, I know and I really do get tickled when I see your notes.
I think doing so is such a nice gesture. Again, thank you!
Anyway, here are the details:
This is open to all followers.
Doesn't matter where in the world you live.
Doesn't matter how long you've followed.
I MUST have a way to contact you.
I will not hunt you down
(as much fun as that might be).
One entry per person, please.
I will do my best to draw a winner on Wednesday, June 29th at a time of my choosing.
I will use a random number generator to pick a winner.
I will mail your package as soon as I can.
I will not be able to replace the package should it never arrive to it's new home,
so lets hope that doesn't happen.
If I don't hear from the winner with a mailing address in a week's time, I will re-draw.
Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezey!
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my own Ann Sandles finish.
I really loved working on her and I hope if you win the chart, that you will love it, too!
Until next time,
