~ A Survey ~

I've been under the weather the past few days so really don't have anything exciting to share.  I am very excited though...there are now over 200 followers here!!  I know, I know....all of you that have hundreds or thousands are rolling in laughter but hey, I'm thrilled!  I so appreciate anyone that chooses to stop by and follow. There are so many incredible blogs out there and I realize everyone's time is limited.

Now, for the survey part.  I'd like to do another giveaway to honor this momentus occasion but my mind is not working too well.  Yeah, I know...not a rare occasion is it?  :-)  I'd like to know what your preferences are for giveaways ~ a treasure trove of items like for a kitchen, bathroom, etc.,  a magazine subscription, holiday items. Other suggestions are so welcome! 

I'll make a choice by Monday, the 1st, and then we'll begin the sign-ups for a surprise. I just have to say that it will NOT be anything related to summer!  I cannot tell you how much I hate these triple digits e-v-e-r-y single day.

Ok, now's your chance to tell me what you would like!  Thanks in advance for doing this ~


  1. Oh, Pat...I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. And this heat is not helping, is it?

    I love giveaways. Having them and winning of course!! ;-D

    I love getting handmade items, little things gifted from the heart. That's all that really matters to me, and there is so much talent out there, I am always pleasantly surprised. Of course, if you aren't crafty, and I'm not, themed items are always nice.

    Congratulations on all of your followers. You have a wonderful blog and I enjoy your writing!


  2. Take care, and I hope you are feeling better soon!

  3. Congratulations on passing 200 followers! I completely understand how excited you are... I have just over 100 and can't even believe it. I pinch myself each time someone else follows me!
    I love getting supplies for projects. Those are the giveaways that get me excited!

  4. sorry to hear you're under the weather..Well the heat should soon let up right,, its soon fall, I love to read your blog,, its always such a friendly place to visit,

  5. Congrats on the big 2-oh-oh!
    I have been thinking about doing a giveaway when I hit 100... but like you, I have no idea what people want... you should see me scrambling trying to make a Xmas shopping list.
    I hope you feel better soon, I know this Texas heat is getting to the best of us, I have been praying for some relief soon.

  6. Sorry you have not been well, hope that is over now. Giveaways are always fun...I was doing one a month for a year, kind of got giveaway-d out! LOL I think anything you thought up would be lovely! :D

  7. Congrats on gaining 200 followers! When it comes to giveaways, I really like to get things I can really use like kitchen items and bath and beauty products such as lotions and soaps and jewelry, jewelry, jewelry. I also like giveaways for gift cards to places like target, Walmart and iTunes. I also enjoy some of the handmade creations from some of the Etsy shops. There are so many mommy bloggers out there offering baby stuff, that I look in particular for someone that is offering adult stuff. Hope you are feeling better soon.


  8. Hey Pat, I am so sorry your not feeling well, pack a bag and come to Mississippi and I will take care of you. Of coarse, the weather (especially humidity) is absolutely horrible here!!!!!

    As far as your blog, I love it! I do not expect a give a way of any kind, I just love coming here, and I love that you always stop by my place and leave the sweetest comments.

    Congrats on your followers! Hope you get to feeling better really soon.

  10. First off congrats my friend, I am very very happy for you. As for a giveaway, well the fact that you are so generous to host one, is kind enough in my book. I loved the giveaway I won from you last year, everything in that box was fabulous! feel better soon.XO

  11. Sorry you are not feeling well...I felt sort of wrung out today myself. I'm a new follower. No. 203 to be exact! I love giveaways and I think anything from an Etsy shop is great fun. I'll be back to see what you come up with. Rest up and get better!
    Thanks for taking my Home Tour. :o)

  13. Hi Pat!
    Thank you for visiting me yesterday!
    I love Debbie, and I am thrilled you found me there!!
    Your blog is awesome!! Of course I am following you!!
    I just hit my 200 milestone too!! What I did for 100 and again for 200 was to giveaway something from a special friend's etsy shoppe. Win win I think. I get to feature a fabulous crafty spirit's store, and someone will win their gorgeous wares!!!
    OR, your goodie box idea is pretty fab!!
    Whatever you do, your blog and it's awesome content is brilliant!!

  15. Hi Pat! So sorry you've been feeling under the weather :( I hope and Pray that you will be feeling much better quickly! How awesome that you have 200 followers, that is so exciting... I don't even think I have 20. LOL! Oh and I totally sympathize with you and the triple degree weather, I'm so over it.

  17. Oh Pat, I am sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I hope your get back on your feet soon!
    Congrats on hitting over 200 followers! That is exciting! I still get excited when I get a new follower! As far as giveaways, I think we all like just about anything LOL but, from the "giver's" side of a giveaway, gift cards are nice because you aren't spending tons of money on shipping costs!

  18. So sorry you're not feeling well. Hope you're feeling your best soon!

    Many congratulations on 200 (now more than that) followers! I am always glad to see a new follower!

    I think a magazine subscription is a great idea. I could think of several right now that I need/want to subscribe to.

    I'm still sitting here thinking about that cake in your last post...if I were there I'd be coming to your house for a piece...that is if someone hasn't beat me to it!

    I am SO ready to say so long summer. I am sick of the heat as well.

    Again, hope you feel better soon.


  19. "200" wow I'm almost at 100 :) I love giveaways but I'm leaving it all up to you. Feel better soon.

  20. I hope your back to feeling like yourself again.

    Congratulations on your 200 followers!!

    Handmade gifts are always nice. Anything from the heart is what really matters.
