Don't miss this giveaway!

To celebrate my 50th birthday, I wanted to offer something special. This week I was just so busy that I didn't get to post on Monday as I had planned , and once again serendipity steps in.

For a chance to win THE prize.....

You don't have to be a blogger to enter. You must have an email address.You must leave a comment on this post only so it is easier to collect names. You may post any comment from today until 6:00 am( central standard time) Wed September 30th. Say hi , leave words of wisdom, or tell me what you had for breakfast...I don't care,just post.

I will find the winner from the random do-hickey site and post the winner's name on October first.You will then receive a promo code to create something cool for free,( including shipping!) There will only be one winner for this giveaway.

Oh! You probably want to know what the prize is? Well, Laura Roberts of Danielson Designs,Ltd. which recently launched a website called ,"The Studio", has generously donated this prize to give my blog readers a chance to personalize any sign or frame on their website,to then be created and shipped to them for free.

This is a $45 offer including postage and a chance to make a special keepsake. You must browse their site, read their story,and view the examples. I know you all love sayings, poems, etc, and it is very easy and fun to create.
It is an awesome product and I know because I just created a sign myself. When it arrives I shall share it with you.

A huge THANK YOU to Laura for making this giveaway so special. I'm excited for the winner!


  1. What a nice give away! Happy 50th and many more happy and healthy ones.

  2. Cool another give away, you are most generous. I always feared the big 5 0 but the 50's have been the best time of my life, so far any way.

  3. Congratulations on your 50th birthday - wish I was 50 again! I am not sure I have any words of wisdom to impart.

    I just try to cram as much in to every day so that I feel 'alive' whatever I achieve. Travel through life causing as few 'ripples' as you can, and cherish every moment.

    It is so generous of you and Laura to give away such a wonderful gift.

    I will certainly be visiting her site - thank you for the link.

    Good luck everybody.


  4. You can't be turning "50"! You look like a young lady, have the energy of 10,000 people and a garden to die for. LOL girl! I wish I was closer I'd take you for tea and crumpets or maybe chocolate!! Or a margarita or two!! When I turned 50 it was a real awakening and I have had a ball ever since. Enjoy friend. Sharon

  22. Pat, you will love being 50! I found it to be very freeing. I didn't plan the part of having exploratory surgery only to find out I had advanced ovarian cancer! I was supposed to be on a cruise in the Carrebbean(sp?) with my husband and instead I was in ICU on a respirator fighting for my life. Almost eleven years later I am still alive much to the surprise of the medical community. They just don't know how stubborn I am! :-) This journey has taught me so many valuable lessons in life; live each day to the fullest, don't think I will do that tomorrow as you may not have a tomorrow, thank God daily for your life, and LIVE, Laugh, and Love each and everyday.
    Symptoms of ovarian cancer:
    pelvic or abdominal pain
    trouble eating or feeling full quickly
    urinary urgency
    back pain
    pain during sex
    menstrual changes
    if symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, consult your physician

    I only share this with you to try to save a woman's life. Those of us that have been diagnosed with this cancer knew none of the symptoms. I have lost countless friends I have met through this cancer journey. I have been instrumental in saving one life and I hope to do so again.

  23. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you....

  24. Pat, you are so generous and this gift if lovely. Hope you have a happy 50th. I celebrated mine three years ago and it ended up being the best year I've had in a long time. Here's hoping for a great year for you... Darlene

  25. Happy, happy Birthday. May you be blessed with health, long life and good friends!

  26. What a kind idea to give away a pressie on you birthday. My 50s have been fabulous so far - hope yours are even better.

  27. Happy 50th! What an awesome prize! This year is both my brother and his wife's 50th and we've had some fun celebrations (with more planned). I hope yours is great. The 50s are great! (I'm looking forward to the 60s!--yikes!)

  28. Happy 50th Pat, I'm right behind you, Nov 17th is my lucky day! As always I enjoy looking and learning what you are up to. Everything about you is beautiful, you and your creations.
