This is fun! I already get your newsletter, I'm a follower but can't tell if I just became one or if I was already was one lol.

Gift-Away #4..I'm loving my Tim Holtz Party Theme tonight! Do you think he knows he's a theme of a Birthday Party? Too funny. We are going to kick this party into full swing. Leave a comment about "who was president when you were born" and I'll draw a winner sometime in the next several hours or when I wake up in the night, which ever comes first. LOL I will say this we have not hit the grand finale. So this may run into tomorrow morning! Very cool. Remember to bring a few friends with you to the party. Parties are always more fun with friends.
