Stay- the most wonderful word in a friend's vocabulary


I love having my friends stop and say hi here. So, in honor of our friendships and to celebrate my second anniversary of becoming an obsessed scrapper I am going to start and amazing RAK that will conclude in December- just in time for Christmas!! Each month I will add to this special RAK box. This month I will be adding to the box my most favorite, inspiring magazine. This magazine will definitely get you thinking outside the box! You'll love it!
Next month, I will add an amazing portfolio containing my favorite pencils- Prisma colors. I will post a picture of this prize some time next month. I have ideas of other things I'd like to add to the box and one of the ideas I have has to do with another hobby I love- jewelry making. Some time between now and December, I will make a piece of jewelry to place into the box- either a bracelet or earrings. I will use Swarovski Crystals and other pretties. I'm also thinking of throwing in some hand made cards and a set of Stampin Up! stamps.
Would you like to know how to win this RAK? It's easy. Here are the details...
As I said, I love having friends visit me here. All you have to do to win the prize is be the most frequent poster on my blog. I will tally up your comments at the end of the year and whoever visits the most must obviously mean they love me the most (hee hee) so to show my appreciation, I will send that person a nice Christmas present. If there are ties, I will either place names into a drawing for Connor to pick out or I will send the finalists a questionnaire to fill out and whoever scores the highest points will win.
I made a resolution at the beginning of the year to RAK something each month so this is in keeping with my resolution. Now, if I could just keep my resolution of only spending $20 a week I would make my hubby so happy. Oh well. LOL!
On another note, I can't contain my excitement! I just ordered my plane tickets to CHA- Chicago this morning. I can not tell you how excited I am to attend and hopefully meet Wilna!! It's incredible how God works! I was standing at my kitchen sink a couple months ago and a still soft voice (God's voice) came out of nowhere and told me, "You're going to meet Wilna in real life". I thought, how can this be when Wilna lives all the way in Canada? Don't question God's power. He has given me the incredible opportunity to meet someone whom I love so dearly and inspires me daily. You can find Wilna's blog by clicking on the sidebar on her My He{art} blog. And if that weren't good enough, it gets even better! I'm going with my adopted mom, Connor's Grandma- Norma Jean! I'm so stinkin' excited I can't stand myself!!
Now I hope that God whispers in my ear that I'll get to meet Liz too and hopefully all my other Heart friends.

How exciting for you, Theresa. It would be very cool if we could all meet someday.

Liz Ness said...

I would SOOOOOO love to meet you, too! You are such a great friend and have shown me so much support, encouragement, and love. It's an honor to know you "virtually" and it would be a blessing to meet the physical you!

I'm so jazzed that you and Wilna get to meet, too. That's so awesome! Have fun you twoo!

PS: Now you and Noell have me thinking. Wonder if we could pull off a "union" with the circle gang somewhere...not a "re" union yet, since it'd be our first time face to face. Hmmm....might have to think about that some. It would be SOOOO cool!

Take care you and thanks for the RAK chance!
