Blogiversary Time!

On March 1, 2007 I started this blog. It's been 8 years. In celebration, I'm having a giveaway contest.

Here is the prize:

This is 2 skeins of Ella Rae Lace Merino Worsted yarn in the Orchid colorway and a small jar of genuine Idaho Wild Huckleberry Jam.

Here are the Rules:

To enter, leave a comment in this post telling me why you read my blog.

ONE comment per person. No anonymous comments will be accepted. So if you don't have a Blogger screen name, please put your name in the comment.

Contest entries will be accepted from now until 5pm pacific time Saturday, March 7th.

I will assign a number to each comment in the order they are posted and then use a random number generator to pick the winner.

I'll announce the winner on Sunday, March 8th. That person will then need to email me their mailing address within 3 days so I can send them their prize. If I don't hear from them, I will draw another winner.

Here's to at least 8 more years of blogging!

Let the commenting begin!

Live long and prosper. \\//
