Holy cannolli

How did I come to have almost 10,000 hits on my blog?! Seems like just yesterday that I started this thing up {ok, not really}, but I remember wondering what the heck I was doing, and why on earth would anyone want to read anything I wrote??

Ah well, I still think that sometimes, but anyway...



In honor of reaching 10,000 hits, I will be giving away a RAK - an envelope of goodies along with a friends ATC - an extra from the set I made for the Hero Arts ATC Swap.  Goodies will include some of the lace on the ATC, Prima flowers, and other embellishments. If I reach 10,000 hits by Saturday at 12 midnight central time, I'll also include a Scrap Pink ATC, made for an AMR swap in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Here's how to enter - post a comment with the current hit count {the counter is at the bottom of the page.} and something you like about a friend.
For an extra entry - follow my blog by clicking the button in the side bar.


Keep the comments coming - I will close for the RAK SUNDAY at MIDNIGHT CST.

Wow, congrats! I love your blog and am already a follower. Let's see, I'll say something about my friend Julie. :) I love her because she loves animals. And her children, and scrapbooking, and she has a rockin old truck! Have a great weekend...

Congrats on all those hits girlie! I already follow ya. I love a friend who can laugh and act immature at times. No one too serious! LOL

Wow! 9974 hits! That's a lot of readers! I have some good friends. They all listen when I need someone to listen and make me feel special. I do the same for them. Noone expects anything either. Also, when we haven't talked in ages and finally get a moment to catch up, it simply feels like we just spoke yesterday even if it has been months! My friends always put a smile on my face when I think of them. Thanks for the chance! Good luck with the 10,000. You are so close!

BIG Congrats Julie - your count was 9977. I love having a friend that always there for me in good times and bad.

GLOANN said...

The count is 9979 as I am leaving you these comments. I want to say something about my AMR friends in general. They just make me feel so good each day when I check in over there. I could name a few of them but then I might forget one (senior moment, ya know!) so I'll just leave it at that.

9988 Almost there! My favorite thing about my friend Carol is that I know I can tell her anything and I know she won't judge me for it. She also laughs with me and can help me to laugh at myself.

Oh Congratulations ... your hit counter is at 10001 right now ... very cool.

My favorite thing about my best friend is that she listens to me whenever I need to talk, she doesn't judge, she just listens and makes me feel like I'm not crazy.

Kimmy said...

what a pretty atc card. i adore that stamp to pieces, i must remember to get it! what i like about friends is being able to be whiny and vent every now and then and being told its okay. :)

Jacqueline said...

10017 - wow! Congratulations. Friends are the treasures that keep us going through the good and bad. When you find one, it isn't easy to let go.

Congratulations on 10,000 hits! I love your blog and no wonder you've gotten so many hits!

The hit counter says 10,030 now.

I have quite a few crafty friends. One new friend I met is Kai, she is my 13 Days of Halloween Swap partner and she is an awesome lady! She is very kind and caring and we have become fast friends since we've started the swap. We never knew each other before the swap.

Thanks Julie for this wonderful giveaway! You're a great friend as well. Marty thinks you're awesome, too!

Congrats! I am lucky enough to have a best friend who simply lights up a room when she enters it. The kind of person you look at and think "I want what ever she's having". I am blessed because she is also my sister.
