Happy Anniversary Jen! Email me your snail mail addy and I will get this out to you for your anniversary present!

blog candy WINNER!

Ok, this is really freaky but totally TRUE! I put the numbers 1-33 (the total # of comments I got) in a bag to pick the winner....Since today is Friday the 13th (my lucky day) I figured "wouldn't it be weird if I picked #13?" Well, I dodn't....BUT here's the weird thing...I picked NUMBER 31!!! ACK! (it's 13 backwards for anyone who didn't have their caffiene today!) SO #31...Keri (who is apparently expecting triplets) , YOU ARE THE WINNER!
Here's what she said...

Keri said...
Our family is anxiously waiting for triplets to come home from the hospital!!!

I really hope you can see this and email me your address (if you aren't giving birth of course! Congratulations!

Ok it looks like I am nearing 2000 on the old counter! A small milestone but still a reason for some free stuff! Since I didn't tag anyone last round, just leave a comment and tell me one interesting thing about you and you will be entered in the contest. I will randomly draw a winner on Friday the 13th (cause it's my lucky day!). Here's the candy...
There is 2 awesomely cute notecards, a pack of chipboard embellishments, 10 hang tags, a canvas mini bag, a baggie filled with brads, rhinestones, buttons and primas. Good Luck!

ACK! I've been tagged by Jen at Inking Along. I thought we ran through this whole tagging thing but...oh's 7 random things about me:

1. I was a Paramedic in Manhattan for 8 years, in Harlem and Washington Heights (and yes, I was there on 9/11) .

2. Me and my DH met originally in 1998 but I ignored him for a year (I had a rule never to date a cop, which he was), then gave in and after one date I knew I would marry him...we were engaged 6 months later!

3. When I was first pregnant and were thinking of names we secretly hoped it would be twins, a boy and a girl we were going to name Luke and Leia (me and DH are super BIG Star Wars freaks).

4. I totally hate my first scrapbook and want to re-do it (but haven't because other people have said "isn't it cool to see how you have evolved in your art?"- yeah but I still hate it!)

5. I went to Catholic School for 12 years and 4 of them were an all-girls school!

6. I am scuba certified, but haven't been diving since my honeymoon 6 years ago...sad, sad, sad!

7. I am a die hard Barry Manilow fan...I've seen him in concert about 15 times (don't tell anyone, ok?)

So that was pretty painless...the problem is taggin people who haven't been tagged yet...I'll have to go fishin' tomorrow! For now have a few laughs and I'll be back later!

Oh and just because I can't leave you hanging with no pretty pictures to look's some:

This mini album was made with an actual pair of flip flops! We will be making this in one of our August craft days so stay tuned!
