Pay It Forward Contest Winners!

First Winner: The Nice One I feel really bad, but I don't even know her name!!!
Second Winner: Melissa from Mel's Tid Bits
Third Winner: Ronda from Ronda's Rants

I think it should be mandatory for these fine winners to add me to their blog roll! Don't you think that's only fair? (Except that me and Ronda go way back! Like, what Ronda? A whole month probably!)

Go to my profile and you can connect with my email address to send me your mailing addresses! I will be announcing the prizes in the next couple of days! (I know I initially said Friday, but I forgot that is Candid Carrie's big Foto day!!! I can't miss THAT!)

Congratulations to our fine winners! Be sure to stop over and say hello! And be sure to watch their site, because then you get another chance to win!

And for today's winners, remember this:

HERE ARE THE RULES: The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward.This is how it works... I am going to agree to send something fun, cute, & nice to 3 blog owners who post a comment. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on. If you are interested in participating, be one of the 3 blog owners to leave a comment! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. Just a gift that will make the person smile. There are no cost restraints, but don't go crazy! You have to promise that you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, and then send something to three people who sign up to play along through your blog. I hope people like this idea. It's a small way to bring a smile to someone's face!
It feels fantastic to win! And I should know.

Okay, so I didn't win. I guess I'll keep reading your blog religiously anyway. It's the least I can do, being your mother and all. No sour grapes. Just lots of red wine. Wait. That is grapes, isn't it. :-)

Candid Carrie said...

I'm just here to say HI and HELLO and here you are all happy snappy talking about me and it isn't even a Phriday!

Thank you for being you and making me smile when I wasn't expecting it. Well, I expected to smile because I came all the way over to Canada but you know what I mean.

P.S. How many more minutes until school starts?

Ronda's Rants said...

I have an award for you!!! Come over to my blog and get it!

I have a mood swinging 14 year old daughter, too. We are thinking about packing her up and sending her to her sister's or grandparents occasionally. She's the youngest, so we know we can just basically ignore her and when she turns around again she will be a different person. Your's is first. Good luck with that. Our's got moody 2 years before her sister did. Luckily, our son was not prone to mood swings.!! I started a blog listing her blond moments. It's new. Maybe I should have begun a mood swings one!

Shan said...

Congrats Ladies! Your little one reminds me of my youngest daughter, so cute!

OK, so I am what? A day late and a dollar short? I am sorry I missed it...I love to give presents :) So if I go to the three winners blogs and comment I will be entered? Sounds like fun!

I'm sorry I couldn't come and tell you to come and see me...I was running late again...that seems to be my theme this year. I almost didn't get my hair done because I am a goofus.
Anyway Have a Great Day!!
