Another PRIZE Offered today

Before I give the info about the newest prize offered for my Anniversary Giveaway Extravaganza I would like to take a moment and say "THANK YOU" to all of you who sent such sweet words of encouragement in response to my post about my sons deployment. Your kind words made me smile and were such a great reminder of the goodness of the people in the prim blogging world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will reread those comments in the days to come when my heart is acheing. You all are just THE BEST and I want you to know how much I love you guys for taking the time to pray for my son and send such warm wishes.

Onto the business of the Giveaway Extravaganza...first of all, one last word of warning...and yes, I am yelling about this "YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR NAME AND EMAIL/BLOG NAME" or you will NOT be entered and I cant even answer your questions...This seems like such a simple request but I still have MANY folks who either havent read the instructions or just refuse to comply.

OK, enough said about that since the majority if you followed the rules. The newest prize is for a hand hooked set of  mug rugs done in a hit or miss fashion....

This is an example of the ones you will receive (they are all original and slightly different ). Now, the twist on this prize is that you can choose either the finished product OR the kit which includes the foundation with the pattern drawn on monks cloth and all the wool (cut & ready to use). When you enter please indicate which prize you would prefer.

As all the other prizes, you have until 11:30 pm on March 31st to enter and the drawing for ALL the prizes will be drawn just before midnite on March 31st.

There are just a few SIMPLE rules:
1. You must be a follower (old or new)
2. You must live in the US
3. You must comment on THIS POST for THIS PRIZE
4. You MUST leave your name AND your blog or email address

1. Send me a NEW follower (5 extra entries for EACH new follower you send me)
2. Blog about THIS giveaway prize (one extra entry)
3. Post THIS giveaway prize  on your sidebar  (one extra entry)
4. Post THIS giveaway prize on your facebook page  (one extra entry)
5. Tweet about THIS prize  (one extra entry)

That's it for today gals. I am still trying to recuperate from the long drive home from Camp LeJeune...We ran into major traffic when a tractor trailer over turned and we were at a stand still for 4 hours on I-95 North !!!! I was sooooo far beyond tired that I dont even remember coming in the house or getting in bed. I spent most of yesterday in a fog and unfortunately today isnt much better..but at least I can sort of focus and blog, right ?

Until next time...
Grace to you,

  27. O Margie, you are just too sweet to all your followers Id love to be entered but ...I know your far overworked and way overpaid dont pull my name or you will have to hook me some mats ...I just dont have those skills :0) Have a great weekend and rest up hugs lil raggedy angie

  28. Sweet as can be Miss Margie....but, I actually have a set of coasters so you don't need to enter me on this latest giveaway - I'd feel badly winning something I truly don't need (although yours are much cuter than mine!!) I have, however, posted to my sidebar once again....Hoping to get you to 350, but we're running out of time! (And I think I might have messed up - I thought I was reading that folks were to sign up by 3/30, and so that's what I put on my sidebar posts....sorry if I was mistaken.....) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
