Can someone tell me where April went? Really, I need to know. So much has been going on and I feel like the days are flying by faster than I can handle. My head is spinning with stuff. Such as:
You may remember that last week my husband and I put a bid on a house, but the owners decided to hold out for more money. Well, they changed their minds (which we totally knew was going to happen) and now we’re under contract. Here’s hoping that May is a little longer than April, because provided all goes well with inspections and financing, I’m going to have to pack up and move before June.
My birthday is coming up, and I’m turning th–, thirrrrr–, a year older. I feel like simultaneously celebrating and, I don’t know, hiding under the covers all day and pretending it’s not happening. Jesse will not let me rent a moon bounce, so right now hiding is winning out over celebrating.
Ah, what the heck, let’s celebrate. My life may be crazy right now, but it’s a good kind of crazy (just like me). So in honor of my birthday, and National Scrapbook Month, and the fact that I just feel like giving away a bunch of stuff, let’s have a party. I’ll supply the presents. What will they be? Only some of my favorite things. Copic Markers, Spica Pens, Stamps from Hambo and TSB, Distress Inks. The grand prize will contain thirrrr—a lot of—items in all, and I promise they’ll all be good.
You have until Midnight PST on May 31 to enter. All you have to do is:
1. Leave a comment on this post. Tell me how you would (or did) celebrate your [Number That Shall Not Be Named]th birthday.
2. Like Inklings and Yarns on Facebook.
3. Become a follower (via the “Join This Site” button on my sidebar).
That’s three possible chances to win. But wait, there’s more. You can get 2 bonus entries if you link to this post from anywhere on the internet (facebook, twitter, your personal blog, whatever). I’m not going to make you put a blinkie in your sidebar or write a whole blog post about me, just a quick mention. Be sure to leave a link to your link in the comments to get your bonus.
Oh, and be sure to come back and visit throughout the month, because I just might do some random early drawings and mini-contests, but I don’t know when. (HINT: My birthday might be a good day for one.)
