500th Follower Update

This is my 3rd post today!

Hi Friends!!!
First I would like to say that I didn't forget about you fantastic friends!! Thanks to all of you, I have reached my 500th follower and then some!!!!  So thank you!!!!! Since I reached my goal, the prize up for grabs is a $100 Amazon gift card. WOOHOO right? :)

So I have some important things coming up for me in the next two weeks that I have to focus on right now. Some tests of sort and some important life-changing matters to deal with....I want to get that all out of the way first as it is weighing heavy on me.... So I wanted to pop on here and let you all know that I will be announcing the lucky winner on March 3rd. I thank you all again for being so patient and I wish each and every one of you lots of luck in this giveaway!!!!  Remember that you must be a follower of mine to be the winner so make sure you are following me. I would hate to have the winner be someone that is not a follower as that would not count. So... If you are the winner, what will you purchase??? Leave your comments on this post!

Until next time,
Enjoy life's blessings~


  1. Something extravagant. Maybe put it towards a new cutting machine like a Sizzix or Big Shot or whatever they are called. Maybe a new tape gun. Or I guess tool is the word now instead of gun. It's so hard to decide.

    I hope you get some really good news, Jo. Nothing bad. Concentrate on your health.

  2. With the $100 amazon card I would buy some treats for my dog, refills for my Vac Sealer, blue jeans, etc.

  3. Sending prayers for good test results. Oh what I can do with an Amazon gift card- I have many things in mind right now..

  4. I hope all goes well for you the next two weeks, Jo. Thinking of you my friend and keeping you in my prayers. I hope all the news you receive is good.

    Huge congrats on not only reaching 500, but surpassing it!! Oh gosh, so many things I'd buy but I have such a raging die addiction...that's where most of it would go :)

    Thank you so much for the opportunity at an amazing prize!! Have a great evening!! Big hugs :)

  5. my child would probably get it, he finds stuff on Amazon all the time...although, I do have a few things in my cart and a gift for my secret sister.


  6. Hey Jo Hope your doing ok and it's all good news for you :)
    For me it would have to be a toss up from Markers or Pencils and perhaps a little surprise for the other half if there is anything left over

    As for what I would buy, something crafty I'm sure. Maybe put it toward a Silhouette Cameo 3, Silhouette Curio, or other cutting machine. It's fun to dream. :-)

  31. Hi Jo, sending prayers your way, take your time on the drawing and focus on you, that is what is important and it gives all of us more time to dream. I would get a variety of crafting supplies, Tim Holtz new Ozide inks, some other new inks, some Whimsy stamps ... Congrats on 500 followers and take care of yourself. Donna

  32. I am in serious need of a new embossing machine, so I guess I would get a Big Shot. My poor old cuttlebug is about done in. Even one of the "feet" broke off the other day. Hope you are doing better now!
