Two Years - Another Blogiversary!
I can hardly believe it - I've been blogging for two years! I can still remember sitting at my computer while recovering from major surgery and I discovered blogs! I thought I'd jump on the blogging bandwagon and it's been one incredible ride. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!
A celebration means a giveaway - woohoo! Thimbles and Joy are super excited to be a part of this celebration and we hope you are too. :-)
So many have wondered what I was going to do with all the yo-yos I've been making recently - filling my jar and making plans. teehee!
How many yo-yos are in the jar???
Between now and Wednesday, June 4th, please leave a comment with your guess. I have a super prize planned but I don't plan to show it to you until I announce the winner Thursday, June 5th! teehee!!!!!! :-)
Good Luck!
In Friendship!!!!
