100 Follower Giveaway and another project for the Christmas Train!

Oh, y'all are amazing! When I started this little blog, I never imagined more than a handful of people would even give a hoot. I was thinking 4 or 5. This is just such a wonderful community and I am constantly inspired and amazed and entertained by all of you. So thank you for taking the time to stop in and peek into life at the end of the dirt road.

So since I can't very well have y'all gathered at my dining room table and feed you (which is pretty much the answer to everything around here), I will celebrate you with a giveaway and you have a choice! Three choices! I wanted to give you something that you could use whether you're a quilter, or  knitter, or cross-stitcher, or scrapbooker.

1. I have a layer cake of Blush that I have been hoarding for some time that can be yours


2. Or I will send you a $25 gift card to Hobby Lobby
3. Or you may choose a $25 gift card to JoAnns

Hopefully I've covered all the bases!

so if you'll leave a comment and tell me one of your guilty pleasures and which gift you would like, I'll put your name in the hat. At the moment, mine happens to be a handful of animal crackers dunked into Nutella one at a time. I also really dislike leaving my dirt road, but when I do, I love puttering around in little towns that I drove through. My Mom asks why it takes me so long when I drive to visit her and I feel guilty.

I will leave this open until Midnight (Mountain Time), Sunday night, May 6th and choose the winner on Monday morning. Oh, and I have to limit this to followers since the reason I am having this giveaway is because of my followers so no anonymous comments please and please make sure you are not a non-reply blogger because I will have no way of contacting you and that makes me sad because I want you to win. :)

Now, if anyone can tell me what happened to April, I would appreciate it. I'm not complaining though because time cannot speed up enough since I'm waiting for our boy to come home.


Here's my contribution to the April Christmas Through the Year and I promise you will NOT see him again, unless Darlene and Cheryl call for a recap at the end of the year and then you can blame it on them :) He's going to hibernate for the remainder of the year:

You've jumped on the Christmas Train - woohoo!!! Fabulous finish.

Doniene said...

Wow, can't believe I'm one of the first to answer! (sometimes my computer is slow, and I don't see everything!!)

I would love the layer cake! You know me - don't want to drive down my dirt road to go to town! Love having fabric arrive in my mailbox, that the hubby picks up, because that means I didn't have to drive!!

Guilty pleasure - do I only get to name one!! LOL

Right now I'm loving Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses and a 20 oz bottle of Mountain Dew! Talk about a caffeine rush that keeps me going, and going, and going...

But it do taste good!!!! Yum, Yum!!

Love the framing on Buddy - perfect!!

Blessings

I'd choose the JoAnn's gift card. One of my guilty pleasures is a fudgesicle. I will have to try the animal crackers dunked in Nutella - sounds delicious! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Deanna said...

You know how much I enjoy your blog. I'm glad to see your Christmas presents coming together. Oh, and if I am the lucky one, I would like the layer cake. I could have fun with that. Probably a charm quilt to giveaway, maybe even for Christmas.

Cheryl said...

So glad you jumped on board the Christmas Train with us!! Great Christmas gift!!

Janet said...

No Hobby Lobby or Jo-Ann's anywhere near me so I'll go for the Bliss. Congratulations on 100 followers!

Michelle Hudak said...

I'd love the Bliss fabric.

Guilty pleasure..I just found some Jelly Belly Cherry Syrup at the store and I'm pouring it on every flavor of ice cream I can find and mixing it in my coffee. I may need to buy a gallon jug if they sell it.

I love a bowl of vanilla (yes, vanilla) ice cream at night to celebrate the end of a tough day. Enjoy your blog. Always interesting to see whats at he end of the dirt road!

Martha said...

I love the layer cake...almost as much as my guilty pleasure...maraschino cherries on anything, vanilla ice cream, vanilla pudding, or right out of the jar with a spoon. Thanks for inspiring us.

And a layer cake with some nutella and animal crackers sounds just dandy! Thanks for the offer and I'm trying to send ESP signals to your random picker!

Congrats on 100 followers and I would pick the Layer Cake if I won. My guilty pleasure right now is Dove dark chocolate and almonds, oh and a diet Pepsi.

My guilty pleasure is gluten free biccies that taste like Tim Tams which I am not allowed to have! I keep them in the fridge so no one else can sneak them!! Really naughty....

Staci said...

Yay for you! That's great-- 100 followers!

A guilty pleasure--reading a book from cover to cover in one sitting. I rarely have the chance to do it, but I just love it when those rare occasions happen.

I think April blew away in the high winds!
I've been looking for it, too!

Karen said...

lovely blog! and I love the layer cake fabric. My guilty pleasure...geez, this is scary now that I have to write it out loud, dark cherry ice cream and crumbled up Chips Ahoy cookies...and have been known to eat a whole half gallon in 2 days. YIKES!

Kat said...

My guilty pleasure is melting peanut butter and chocolate chips, then pouring it over ice cream. Any flavor. Of course, now I think I need to try animal crackers with Nutella!

Joann's is my top choice, followed by the fabric. (No Hobby Lobby where I live, unfortunately)

Bobbie said...

Well lets see I love these chocolate cupcakes, you stick a mini reeces cup in the middle and bake, then you take some conf sugar, half and half melted choc and make frosting and top with crushed pretzels. OMG yummylishish.
I would love to have a Michaels card to play with.
Thanks,
