A Great Big Give-Away


I am having such a majorly happy kind of day that I am posting this Mother's Day Give-Away now even though I was going to wait until I hit 5000 hits on my blog. Oh, it's only numbers, right? I'd rather start the fun now! (I also used to peek underneath the wrapping of my Christmas presents when my Mom put them under the tree).
So what you have to do to win ALL of these little guys (yes, that's all 16 of the Michael's $1 clear stamps from the second series, plus the Rhonna Farrer swirly bird or whatever he is called) is guess the number of blogs I have listed in my favorites. Which BTW I do read regularly. And, no, they are not listed on the side, so you are on your own on this one.
I'll announce the winner on Mother's Day. You don't have to be a mother, just have -- or like me, had one -- in order to play. Don't guess what someone else guesses. If it's close, the one who comes closest without going over wins. Plus there's a little something for runner-ups #2 and #3.

Nice blog candy!
Hmmm I'm thinking you have 25 blogs listed in your favorites.

JaneAnn said...

I am guessing you have 76 blogs in your favorites. I don't know what BTW stands for, so I cannot guess which one you read...

I hope I win these stamps.

Sarah said...

I'll guess 53 blogs in your favorites. I have not seen the little bird stamp before. Pretty cute!

doverdi said...

For some reason the #15 popped in my head so I will stick with it. What an awesome blog prize. Boy would I love those goodies. The only M's near me is an hour away so unfortunately I don't get there very often. Of course when I do, they don't have any acrylic stamps. Oh, well, someday! Happy Mother's Day

Elaine said...

I will guess you have 58 blogs to read through - whew...If you do, I don't know how you do it!!

Anya said...

Cute blog, and what a great prize! I will guess 24.

Mary O.K. said...

Oh, boy-- Now THIS is an interesting idea!

Let's see now:
If GW has about 45 blogs listed (and heaven knows, we stick together!), then let's add approximately the the number of blogs I read... (hmmm...4 and carry the 3...), then throw in a few extras for good luck...

I'm going to guess 73.

It may not be right, but it's impressive!
Best wishes--
Mary

Since there is not that much time in the day to read all of them daily, I'll say you have #31 Blogs you read regularly and many, many more you read occasionally.

You are very generous to do this! I've made so many 4 hour round trips to my closest M's to try to find some of these stamps but they are always out. I would LOVE to win these.
