in a nutshell. or a box. but a giveaway.

100 followers today!

In a way its silly we get excited over milestone numbers, isn't it? 100 is just a number. Its one more than 99 and one less than 101. Sorry to burst your bubble 100, but there's actually nothing that spectacular about you.
Except that you inspired me to have a giveaway.
A giveaway that is essentially a big random box of all things I like. The box may or may not (considering I'm coming up with this as I write) include some of the following items:
- a thrifting treasure
- some of my favorite French bird postcards
- a present that I'll sew for you. stop laughing.
- a jar of my favorite Kansas City salsa
- a cartoon of my favorite scenes from Tommy Boy. drawn by me.
- some awesome stationary
- something fabulous from Hammerpress because every giveaway I've ever done has been from Hammerpress and I love a good tradition.
And I'll think of more. Its kind of fun if its a surprise, right? It will be sort of like the image at the top - a jumble of lovely things that don't really go together but you still like them.
Soooo if you'd like to be in the running for this box-o-awesomeness, here's what you can do:
1. Leave a comment. yea!
2. For good blogging juju, if you're a follower let me know and I'll toss your name in the hat again. Because you're the whole reason for the giveaway goshdarnit!
3. Cross your fingers and I'll draw on Monday the 21st
PS. I promise I'm not just cleaning out my closet and sending you the contents. But you have to admit that would be kind of funny.

Yeah it is a number, but it's great people get you! That's what I love, that they bother to add you to their life.

Your giveaway sounds fab, I love the comment that your not REALLY just clearing out the closet, too funny!

100 is a great milestone!! It's a nice round number and 101 just doesn't roll off the tongue the same way. Does it count if I'm a follower on bloglines?

ps - I bet that the stuff coming out of your closet wouldn't be a bad drawing by itself :)

Mireya said...

Congrats! I'm a follower too! Thanks for the giveaway :)
