I'm back...and MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!

I'm back...not quite 100% recovered yet, but getting better every day (it was bronchitis and for some reason it really threw me for a loop, but three rounds of antibiotics later and many cough medications...)...and and I am still missing my sweet cat Max, but taking comfort in my memories and my other four-legged children. Thanks to all of my blogger friends who sent me sweet wishes about my sweet boy.

OK, on to business. I am FINALLY starting to feel the creative juices flowing again, so am going to work this weekend on producing some stuff. In the meantime, I thought I would have MY FIRST GIVEAWAY! Blame it on not feeling well, but I actually bought two issues of the Summer 2008 ARTFUL BLOGGING magazine....doh!

SO, I would love to give the extra copy of ARTFUL BLOGGING (Summer 2008) away to someone! I will ALSO throw in a bunch of other fun supplies and vintage goodness (not pictured) to the lucky winner!! Each comment on this post will be entered in my giveaway. I think I will have the drawing on...let's say a week from today June 26. Just be sure that I have a way to reach you! I will post the winner after 12:00pm EST on June 26!!

Thanks, my sweet friends!

Hi, Lolly, from another crazy cat lady (four of them on this end!!)!

I'm so sorry to hear about your precious Max. They do become like children to us and losing them is so, so hard.

Oh, I lined to you from Calamity Jane's, and am so glad I did -- somehow I've managed to never hear about that wonderful magazine, and would love to win it.

Glad to hear your creativity is back and flowing, too, and will check back to see your new creations!

Warmest regards, Ronda

Hi Lolly! Thank you for visiting my new's opening a whole new world to me. I'm excited about your giveaway! Have heard talk of this magazine but haven't gotten hold of one yet. While I'm more of a dog lover than a cat lover, I feel your sorrow. It's never easy to say goodbye to our animal friends. Thankfully, our memories can never be taken from us.
Happy Thursday!

If I'm not too late, please enter me in your giveaway. I have never seen this magazine before! I'm so sorry for your loss. We have 7 kitties and each one is a member of the family, so I know how hard it will be when we lose one.
