HaPPy VaLEntIneS DaY RoBiN!

I am HaPPy To AnNOuncE tHaT YOu ArE The WiNNer of The BeaUTifUl ShEpHErdS BuSh "ThOuGhTFul HeART" kit!!!

CoNGratS!!! PLeaSe E-mAiL ME YoUr AdDreSs sO I KnoW WHeRE yOu WOulD LiKE yoUr PAckAge SEnt.

Thank You for making this another fun giveaway. I love to read your comments, they are always so fun/funny and bring a smile to my face. Happy Valentine's Day to each of you.

I have been working on a few things lately (which I will post later). I have started my anniversary project but am choosing to not post any photos until it is done. I am working on an exchange so I can't post any photo's until it is finished and she has received her gift. That sounds so boring, no photos!!! Sorry guys! I am in hopes that this will be finished by the end of the week.

Last weekend my nephew was involved in a really bad snowmobile accident. He shattered his spleen and wrist among other things and he is still in the hospital. I wasn't able to go see him because I have been sick for quite some time. I went to the doctor and my diagnosis was, as he put it "gross"!!! What kind of a diagnosis is that? I really like my doctor, but he was leaving for Disneyland in less than two hours when I was there so he really didn't give me a thorough exam. He prescribed me some antibiodics and sent me off. (I think he was already in California!) After the course of 10 days on antibiodics, I am still not well. I guess I will be going back for a follow up. YUCK!

Enough about me, I hope you are all staying warm and feeling well. It has been such a bad winter in so many areas this year, but not necessarily Utah. It has been pretty mild considering.

My Mikey fixed me a really nice "breakfast in bed" this morning. We ate hashbrowns with ketchup, poached eggs, sausage links and coffee with french vanilla creamer, delish! What a sweetheart. I wonder what is in store for the rest of the day?

Have a "Sweet" Day!!!

With sweethearts day drawing near, I found it in my "heart" to have another giveaway. As always, I like to have a little fun with my giveaways so I thought I would give you a few options. You've heard the saying:

"Roses are red, violets are blue"

So the first option is to finish the second line, for example:

"I can't live my life without you".

Another option is to "reinvent" the conversation heart. What are some new "sayings" we could print on these traditional candies we all love?

So, the choice is yours. If you would like one entry, choose one of the two options and leave me a comment for one entry. If you want a second entry to up your odds at winning, post another comment so that you actually comment on both options. And if you would like, you may post this on your blog for a third entry and leave me another comment telling me so.

The winner will be randomly selected on Sunday, February 14th, Valentine's Day 2010. You may leave your comments (entries) on this post only until midnight, Saturday, February 13th.
The Valentine's Day winner will be presented with the "Thoughtful Heart" kit by Shepherd's Bush that you see below.

I wish each of you a lovely Valentine's Day and best of luck to you. Your comments can be as corny or as sincere as you would like, just have a little fun while you're at it. It is all about the journey and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Today I came down with a terrible bout

a sickness that is serious and deadly, no doubt

The doctors say it’s without a cure

and just how I got it, they are unsure

The symptoms are awful

and horrible, I say

You appear to be glowing

all night and all day

You also will experience

a permanent smile

and a continuous happiness

that makes life worthwhile

the worst part of this whole thing

is when your words become muddled

you get all nervous and can’t speak

and turn into a puddle!

But never fear, my friend!

this illness will not bother you

unless you are hopelessly in love

with a love that’s true

for this illness with which I’ve been stricken

happens only when you fall in love,

when you are smitten…

like mittens!!
