People will forget what you did,
But people will never forget how you made them feel.

2014/150: Memories Of Spring

Seems odd to say this, since it isn’t even officially summer yet, but it sure feels like it… and the tulips are long gone.

2014/149: And The Winner Is…

A few days ago I had a little note card giveaway on this blog, and out of the 30-something people who qualified, only six entered. I was hoping for a few more, but I’m sure those six were happy about their chances of winning πŸ˜‰

I had my daughter Sara help me pick the winner, which she was more than happy to do. She even provided her sun hat to put the names in, and I thought I’d take a little video of the drawing. I apologize for the sudden ending…seems that I’ve trimmed a couple of frames too many off the video (oops!)…. but I think you can still see the name of he winner if you don’t blink at the very end πŸ˜‰

But before we get to the video, here is an image of one of the note cards included in the set.

CONGRATULATIONS!! Your set of note cards will be on their way to you by the end of the week! πŸ™‚
** I’ve added a still shot of the video in the comments, where you can see the name of the winner more clearly.

Don’t know what these really are, but we always used to call them “helicopters”. Still do πŸ™‚

2014/143: A Giveaway!

It’s been such a long time since I’ve done one of these, and Kathy’s recent giveawayΒ inspired me to do my own again.

So today I’m giving away a set of 10 (blank inside) note cards, each with a different photograph of mine. Which ones will remain a mystery until the lucky winner will receive his / her prize πŸ˜‰

To qualify for the giveaway all you need to have done is comment at least once here on my blog between January 1, 2014 and May 22, 2014, just to keep all the lurkers to come out of hiding at the chance of a freebie. Post Likes unfortunately do not qualify.

You have until Tuesday, May 27, 2014 to enter, just leave a little comment on this post and your name will be entered into the drawing, and then tune in on Thursday, May 29th to see if you’ve won.

Good Luck!
