I'm having a GIVEAWAY......

3 weeks without a cigarette..time to celebrate!!!! yay for me!!! and yay for you..because I'm having a giveaway to celebrate!!! been keeping my mind and hands busy..it's working!!!
A small(about 5x5) accordion book collaged and embellished by me! there are pages on it for you to add pictures that are special to you!!
since i still can't use my camera..lost the cd that tells my computer to recognize it..and the cell phone camera for some reason won't let me send the picture to my email...these scans will have to do!
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS POST..you don't have to be a follower,post on your blog or anything like that! Just let me know you'd like to have your name added! I'm going to try the "random" generator thingy to pick the winner. If i can't figure it out, all names will go into a hat!!! I'll mail anywhere!!!!
I think if I've made it this far...it's a go on becoming a non-smoker!!!!






I'll draw the name on Friday,May 27th after 3pm pacific time!..that should give me time to figure out the random number generator!!

Good for you, stay strong. I gave up about five years ago but I am still tempted every time I smell a freshly lit cigarette.
Yours is the best kind of giveaway, no hoops to jump through. Please count me in, I would be delighted if I were to win your lovely book.

Ann! Count me in on this please!! Congratulations on the quitting smoking thing. I don't have any words of wisdom or fancy quote. Just that not smoking is loving yourself and allowing your loved ones to love you.
Well just go to www.random.org and after that it is kinda a no brainer (if I can do it, honey, you can too). I compile a partners list once a month with random.org and it is a swell site I must say!
And the scans came out great. I love this piece you made. *smiles" Norma

Ann said...

Ann said...

Laurie...most smokers I know are in the medical field!!! wonder why?!!
thanks for your support!! i figured it's going to take a village to help me quit!!! it's now been a bit over a month..getting easier..still love the way they smell! my son is a smoker,and so far his smoking hasn't caused a problem..he offered to smoke outside,but i figured i'm going to be around them,so i might as well get used to it from the start!xo
