Countdown to 10,000!

Well, it HAS taken awhile, but I am on the countdown to 10,000 visits to my blog! Sooooooo, in honor of this momentous occasion, I thought I just might offer a prize to one of my faithful readers, meaning, I would put all of your names in a basket and draw it out, then contact you via email, get the pertinent info needed, and send the prize to you! Isn't this exciting?!?!?! (okay, okay....I know....it doesn't take much to amuse me. *grin) Nowwwww, what should the prize be??? My first thought is: AN OHIO STATE AFGHAN!!! And I just happen to be working on one at the present time! I mean, football season is just around the corner!!! Of course, if you don't live in Ohio, that might not sound so great, hm? *tapping my chin thoughtfully* Well, you could tell me the team colors that you prefer and I could make it in those colors or the home decor colors you prefer. Let me know what you think! Orrrrrrrrr, how about some of Ed's homemade fudge? And you have the options of plain, nuts, raisins, or both raisins and nuts? It is delicioso!! Another idea is a knotted fleece blanket/throw in the colors of your choosing. I'll post a pic of one that I made with OSU fleece. (Love that OSU stuff,hm? *smile*) Oh, and there are some of you who read but do not comment and that is okay, but if you want to be included, you'll have to post a comment here,k? Well, it is getting late and I must be taking myself off to bed as tomorrow is Sunday and I want to be rested and all for church! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!
here.

Jewel said...

Okay....did I miss sumthin'? Did I mention Tuna Noodle Casserole? (going back and reading....Hmmmm) No, I didn't but it might be doable. IF you win, Tony! It's a whole lot easier than an afghan orrrr fudge! *smile* Okay, don't anyone else start giving me prize ideas! This is it!

Don said...

Charity

The Muffin said...

Do adopted family members get special consideration in this drawing? *grin*

Jewel said...

I gotcha, Charity. Wellllll, Beckyyyyyy, I have to be FAIR! But maybe we can work something out for Christmas,k? Just for you!

Jewel said...

Hey, Becky, Do you still have the animal print blanket?

Barbara H. said...

Well, what a sweet idea! I don't root for any team but I love both afghans and throws. Fudge sounds good but I probably ought not have the temptation in the house -- I'm supposed to be watching the calories but have kind of fallen off the bandwagon.

Aidan said...

Now if i just hit the refresh button 960 more times the afghan is mine:)

What a great idea for a competition the spirit of fun on the net.

Jewel said...

You're in, Barbara! And I know about the calorie-counting. *sigh* And he does make wonderful fudge!
Now Aidan....*grin*....the rules are: participants must leave a comment and then all of your names will be put in a hat and drawn from! Soooo...it could be YOU!! I will say...this has done wonders for my blog hits!! *smile*

chantell said...

I humbly add my name to the hat. Love ya, Sis. Jewel!

Jewel said...

Love ya, too, Chantell! You're in!!! :-) Ohhhh and wouldn't an afghan be so nice for you new apartment?!?!?!

The Muffin said...

I do have the animal print blanket. Some of the knots keep coming untied, but I still love that thing.

Theresa said...

Fudge, please?? PRETTY PLEASE??? I love me some fudge!!!! Just plain fudge!!! Do you get the idea that I love fudge?? ((HUGS))

Jewel said...

I'm so glad to hear that you still have it AND love it, Becky!!
Yes, Theresa, fudge it will be, IF you win! Only five more hits to go!!!

Theresa said...

I checked your meter at the bottom this morning and it is back to 9,100. What gives???

Jewel said...

I don't know! I just logged on here to check all of the names and the number. I was sure it would be 10,000 by now. I don't know what happened! BUT, I'll check it in the morning and see what happens! Anywayyyy....I'm bound to hit 10,000 eventually. *smile* Not to worry. The afghan is coming along beautifully and Ed has agreed to make the fudge! So the prizes are in the works! Talk to you all tomorrow!
