A few weeks ago, I entered a give away over at A Field Journal. Check out Olivia's Blog if you haven't before. She's an amazing artist, crafts person, graphic designer and photographer. I've entered countless give aways since I started traveling through the blog world, always hoping, but never really believing I would ever win anything. I've only ever won anything twice in my life. The first time was when I was about 10 years old. I won a children's, illustrated "New Testament Stories" book at my local 4H fair. The second time was when I was in 8th grade. My Jr. High School had some sort of "good behavior/no tardies" contest (my class was not particularly known for being a very respectful or obedient class), and the prize was a brand new CD walkman (yes...this dates me a bit...) At the time, I was ecstatic, because CD's were the cutting edge in music technology, and very few people I knew owned a CD player. I was infinitely more thrilled about the second prize than I was the first. What's that say about me? Anyway...I digress. What I'm trying to say is, I AM A WINNER! AGAIN! Can you believe it?! And the prize is awesome! It's a Kid's Crafternoon; Papercraft book. It's filled with tons of fascinating paper crafts (hence the name) that will give Jane and I hours of fun, I'm sure. Hey, and I might even try a few of them out with my students at school, who knows. Fun. Fun. Fun.
All this blog-give-away-winner joy kind of makes me want to have a small give away of my own. Maybe when I reach 100 followers...what do you think?
