It's Giveaway Time

Let's Have a Birthday Party!! 
And a Giveaway or two who knows maybe three or four 
You may want to visit my blog often this month so 
you won't miss out!!

Good Morning to some good afternoon to others!

so I have decided since there is no possible way to pass up or to want to pass
up one glorious day the Good Lord gives me that I am going to Party all month

Well my method of partying may not be very exciting but you get the picture none the less *smile*

Heck I feel like after the month of June that I had,  that I aged 10 years anyways so darn I 
will just accept the number and live like I am younger *sigh*

You may want to really pay attention to some of these posts this month because
I might ask some questions later in the month for prizes to be won

I almost started a fire last week in my housee!!! GEEESH.........Scared me LOL
that is right I caught a piece of paper on fire and set here not realizing it until the smoke
was thick........HURT my darn foot trying to get it put out!! What a sight to see, I need
one of those hidden camera's maybe the one we have outside to capture some of my
delightful GOOFS!!!! And no I am not accident prone, just in case you wondered?
by the way no damage was done!!!
But I may need to leave the candles off of my cake!! You think?

I want a present this month, can you possible guess what that may be?
go ahead give a whirl, it has to do with outdoors!!!

For this first week of July I am giving away this OOAK
American Make do I will draw a winner on Saturday July the 7th
that is my DIL'S birthday so yep we are celebrating that too
there are actually two other family birthday's this month
