Celebration Giveaway!

And the winner has been chosen!

Thanks everyone for playing and following along!!

Come on!

Celebrate good times come on ! – Let’s celebrate

There’s a party going on right here
a celebration to last throughout the years.
So bring your good times and your laughter, too
we’re gonna celebrate your party with you !

See how long you can stay in your seat and not get up and dance to that!

Why you ask???

Lookie what I woke up to yesterday!!

I don’t know how that compares to anyone else but I think that is crazy!  Over 100,000 views to my little old, rambling blog? Seriously? I’ve been at this since January 2011 and there have been months, when traveling, that I never even looked at it, much less posted.

I may not understand why so many people keep coming back but I do think it calls for a celebration!

And how do bloggers celebrate you ask??

With a giveaway!

Unfortunately, this will only be open to those in the US. I’m really sorry, but Amazon won’t let me give away outside the US and redemption shipping would be cost prohibitive, as well. Sorry…. Maybe next time, with a different giveaway, perhaps I can include everyone.

And since I have a range of followers I’m going to offer up a winners choice giveaway! Not everyone is a quilter, I realize, so the random winner may choose between a $25 Amazon e-gift card and a $25 Pink Chalk Fabrics e-gift certificate. I mean seriously, who couldn’t find something to buy at one of those shops??? The only two places that the husband doesn’t even ask about when he checks the credit card bill for accuracy……. LOL!

And since I do not have sponsors you should know that this is coming from me and that they are not responsible for screw ups.

On to the details….

To enter:

1. Leave me a comment telling me what the last, great movie you saw was. I watch a lot of movies, and not necessarily new ones, so let me hear what you liked! I keep a running list of movies to check out from my local library and it needs updated!

2. And since this is in honor of blog views, then that means those who regularly read my blog can give me a second comment and tell me how you follow me. If you aren’t a regular follower, you can do that by signing up, to get new posts, by email. Just click on the *Want to Stay in the Loop* box in the upper right corner and follow along.

Your choice, one entry or two! Please make sure I can reach you if you win. Leave your e-mail address in the comment if you are a no-reply blogger or are not sure.

A winner will be chosen through random.org on Sunday Sept 09, 2012.

Winners have 48 hours to respond to my winning email.  I will announce it here on this blog post and with a private email. If the winner fails to respond in that time a new winner will be chosen. I can not be responsible for mis-delivered emails, server issues, or server-client issues. Just so you know.

Anything else???

Good Luck!

But for now~

There’s a party going on right here
a celebration to last throughout the years.
So bring your good times and your laughter, too
we’re gonna celebrate your party with you !

    It’s Complicated – made me laugh.

    Congratulations on having over 100,000 views already. Wow! I am sorry I can’t help you on new movies, since I seldom watch them. I do have some older ones, though, that I love. Number one is ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. This was made back in the 50s (before I was even born). It is a musical. My daughter bought me the DVD because I love watching it. I also love RV with Robin Williams, Overboard with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, and just yesterday we watched E.T. That is also a great movie.


  3. Winona says:

    I get emails notifying me when you have a new post up. I always look forward to seeing what is going on with you, whether quilting or taking pictures or deer, or recipes to share with us. I love your blog.


  4. lynnema says:

    I don’t see too many movies…can’t even remember the last one that I saw – it was that unmemorable? I can offer up some interesting books if you like!


  5. lynnema says:

    Your blog is on my google reader which I have on my iGoogle page. This is nice and easy as new posts show up when I boot up my computer. Unfortunately Google is changing that soon, but I will still have the Google Reader. The stats that you have are crazy high! Wow! What did you write about or what was happening on that day in December???


  6. Pat says:

    Good morning, Congratulations on your huge number of blog stats! I discovered your blog through the Celebrate Handquilting Facebook site, and follow via email.


  7. Pat says:

    Movies, so many I love and none of them “new.” One fairly recent one (like last 10 years or so) that really struck a cord is “Everything is Illuminated.” Funny, poignant, it will capture your heart, and takes two or more viewings to capture all the nuances of the story. Other favs include Fiddler on the Roof, Out of Africa, While You Were Sleeping, Bridges of Madison County, and of course, The Princess Bride and Brother Where Art Thou!


  8. Melinda says:

    Ooh, great giveaway! A movie? I don’t watch a lot of movies cause I’m rarely impressed with what’s out there. I always loved Raising Arizona and The Princess Bride. I only found out there was a Princess Bride book in the last 5 years or so. A great read!


  9. Melinda says:

    I’m a follower!

    What a nice thing to do!! First, I love reading your blog and am always amazed at your talent! Seems like the whole Taylor clan was blessed with the ability to create beautiful things and I am always inspired and love seeing them.

    Now on to the movies – I love all kinds of movies but I’m going to try to find one that perhaps you haven’t heard of. “Life as a House” with Kevin Kline is one I really enjoyed. I hope you haven’t seen it and that you will enjoy it.

    Keep up the great inspiring blogging!!

    Congratulations!!! Cool milestone.

    Great movie I saw recently, yesterday in fact, Hope Springs.

    I follow you through email.


  12. The last great movie I watch was – i have two Lorax for kids and The Help made me laugh and cry


  13. audrey says:

    Wowsers! Congrats on the stats! I watched a movie with my daughters several months ago that I absolutely loved called ‘Prince of Persia’. Awwwww….


  14. My second chance I get you by email and enjoy reading it whenever it comes out! Oh ya I am a quilter too!


  15. audrey says:

    I follow your posts on the link list on my blog!


  16. Becky Greene says:

    The last movie I wateched was Raising Arizona… for about the millionth time! It is hilarious. I also really loved The Big Year with Steve Martin and Jack Black – I had never heard of it, but it was a sweet, wonderful movie.


  17. barbara says:

    gone with the wind


  18. Ella says:

    I laughed harder than I thought I would at “The Campaign.”


  19. April says:

    Wow, how exciting for you!

    I just started reading your blog: I subscribe thru reader.

    Movies: I don’t watch a lot but here are three: 1. In theater: latest Batman, 2. On video: Captain America, 3. DVD I watch over and over again: Waking Ned Devine.


  20. April says:

    Doh! I forgot that I could split up my comment into two entries! 😉

    Another movie: Stardust. I liked it BETTER than the book. When does THAT happen? 😉


  21. I found your blog while blog hopping and check it out now several times a week. I liked your garlic blog! I just watched an old favorite, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, with Steve Martin and Michael Caine. It’s funny and it takes place in France.

    Congrats on the HUGE number of views!! We don’t see many movies but recently rented from the Red Box The Big Miracle and We Bought a Zoo, both were pretty good.


  24. Material Girl Quilts says:

    I’m also a happy follower 🙂


  25. Kim M. says:

    I follow you through google reader but I read you on my iPad through newsify.


  26. Kim M. says:

    I recently saw “Buck” which is a documentary about the real “horse whisperer”.


  27. Mary Ann says:

    Love Kool and the Gang!! My kind of music!! One of the best movies I have seen is called “The Book of Eli” with Denzel Washington. Wow what a great movie! Enjoy your blog.


  28. Karen A says:

    The most recent great movie I saw was The Help.


  29. Asha says:

    Wow what milestones! Congratulations!!! The power of the internet. 🙂 Movies, oh my I watch way too many. I watch mostly British ones though … BBC TV – so many miniseries and movies for TV. I’ll have to send you an email about all – there is some great stuff there – but as for mainstream movies I loved The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man – must be back to second childhood cause I am loving these superheros! Oh I absolutely loved The Avengers too. Okay I had better shut up. The Help is great and so is The Debt if you get a chance to see it. Now I will shut up. 😉

    The last great movie…somehow it’s been a while since I’ve watched a great movie. I’m not watching as many lately. But my favorite is IQ. Another good one is Seducing Doctor Lewis. Oh, one I watched recently was August Rush. I thought it would just be ok, but I really enjoyed it. I also liked Red.


  32. Amanda says:

    And I’m a follower! I read you in google reader on the ipad, but don’t comment until I get to my “real” computer. It’s convoluted, but it works for me.


  33. auntiethesis says:

    The last movie I saw that I really enjoyed was The Avengers even though I’m not a huge action movie fan, it was good.
