On June 3, I will celebrate my second year of blogging, exploring, meeting new folks, making new friends, learning new things.
It's been a whole lot of fun. I also noticed that sometime in the last month I reached 100 followers and 400+ posts. I really don't pay a lot of attention to those things, but decided since they all sort of came together at the same time, there must be some significance and so, it was time to celebrate with a little give-a-way.

Here's the deal, the give-a-way is for my followers only. There is no button to put on your blog. Blogging about the give-a-way won't get you extra points. All you have to do is leave a comment here. On Friday, June 18, I'll name the winners. There is one small *fly in the ointment* ... you must let me know what gift you would like. I've noticed that I have a lot of readers in my followers and I hope there is something here you would like. You get to choose from:
  • The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women: a portable mentor by McMeekin
  • The first three Matthew Shardlake Historical Mysteries by C. J. Sansom
  • Hooked On Murder by Betty Hechtman - the first in a crochet mystery series
  • A reusable box of 10 recycled cards and envelopes titled *Amelia's Trees*. The quote on the inside of the box is from Shakespeare "I will but look upon the hedges and follow you ..."
  • And last, but not least, a small stone trinket box with inlaid flower (made in India)
In addition, each will come with a surprise.

Get to work! Leave your comment. Tell me what you would like. Make a list in order of preference if you wish. I'll pick the names on June 18. The first name will get the gift of their choice and I'll work my way through the list.

Thanks for celebrating with me.

Joy to You!

Congratulations Snap!! It's a big milestone (400+ posts is impressive). So glad I could be a part of it. Would love the first three Matthew Shardlake Historical Mysteries by C. J. Sansom- I'm always up for a little mystery and I might need more after I finish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo...
