Kid's Crafternoon...me...a winner?


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?
