So here I am, at the 100 mark

No really, this is post 100.
I can't belive it. Odd, it doesn't seem like so many.
I was tagged by
Odd Dotty........ who has some fun stuff on her blog and a meme. Thanks for sharing Dotty. LOL You should pop by and visit her!

So I am going to give you all 7 things about me, but I don't think I will tag anyone, as we are all very familiar with this little gem. If you do feel like updating us all on 7 things that you feel have changed about you or revelations you have had in your life in the last year, why not join in and post 7 things about yourself on YOUR blog space, but let me know.... I want to read it too!

Plus I think that in honor of the 100th post I will hold a little contest.


I make purses.... and I will send one out. Either a colour I have, or possibly a custom made one, depending on how far I am with my WIP's! So, here is a pic of some that I have done.... for size etc.
This will be open for a week, from Sunday to Sunday. One entry for posting in response to this post, and one for linking to this contest on your blog post..... you know the standard stuff.

I am super glad to have made it this far, so I thank you for giving me incentive to write, other than my own need to ramble! LOL

So here are 7 things.......

1. I like Vegimite....... no really that stuff is yummy!

2. Hawaian Colada Rooibos is my favorite blend to have as chai tea ( I get this addicting substance from Granville Island Tea co. )

3. I am looking into getting a laptop computer.

4.I want to move somewhere in the next 5 years where I can see the Aurora Borealis.

5. I love getting mail that isn't bills, postcards from friends are the best!

6. Dean Koontz may be my favorite author ( you can find him here but you may have to know his books a bit before you understand the dog stuff...... he has changed so much as a author, I have been reading him for years, and his books now are the best they have ever been especially Odd Thomas)

7. I like to knit while my man plays video games, I enjoy all of it usually..... watching, making suggestions and just seeing how he works stuff out. Some games are better than others, I can only watch so much COD 4 before I go to bed!
LOL

So that is my little list. Hope you are all getting what you want done this weekend, even if it is nothing special. Today we spent a nice day with our friends who have a 3-week old baby boy. Unexpectedly we went down to Granville Island and had a walk around, then watched a movie. It was a great and relaxing..... even as a primarily non-knitting day. Hope to have that shawl done soon... I am going to be joining ball 5 in a little while..... so I am wondering if that will be long enough! LOL I could be done this week! Then on to other projects that have to be finished.

Oh, and Fiberfest in Abbotsford is coming up next week! I promise to be as good as I can be. I have no idea what I will find there, but I will take my camera and give oyu allan update anyway!

Oh goody, first up! great list of items--we have a lot of similarities, especially the one about getting mail :)

Congratulations on your 100th post, I'm nowhere near there yet!

Congrats on making it to 100.

Even though I've lived all my life in places where you can see the A.B. I have only seen them once and it was a mediocre display.

And if you send me your address I'll send you a postcard. You can email me at savior(underscore)in(underscore)cellophane(atsymbol)yahoo(dot)com.

Hope all of you on the West Coast are having a great winter. I am in Ontario and I am so ready to call uncle to Mother Nature and tell her she wins this year. Come on, Spring!

Happy 100th post and beautiful purses!

I liked hearing details about your weekend, and I just started a blog, and have been a little shy about that, so maybe I'll come out of my shell a little more. It makes things way more interesting.

Aster said...

Your purses are adorable! 100 posts is a huge accomplishment. I bet it's fun to look back at your first posts and see how far you've come.

Sonya said...

Hi, I love Dean Koontz too. I have read almost all of his books. I will link in my Thursday post.

Mary Ann said...

Congradulations on your 100th post! I also like to get "good" mail! It's so much better than bills!

I'm happy that I checked out your contest. Your purses are very nice. I also like the entrelac knitting that you're doing. I made a blanket in crochet entrelac, but I didn't know it was called that until I saw it on Raverly. You can see a pic of it in my projects or the Entrelac group at Raverly. Maybe someday I'll try the knitted version.

Happy 100! I love getting mail too. And you should totally go for the laptop. I wasn't sure about laptops when I was in the market for a new computer, but now I'm glad I got one.

My finonce's favorite author is Dean Koontz as well. I have been buying him all the used books I can, so he has a huge collection of him. That guy has trillions of books out man!

The next DK book i'm going to read is the "Taking."
