My Goodness!! 1000 Hits - time for Blog Candy Celebration

I just happened to come check my blog tonight....right when that counter said 1000!!!. Even though I've had this blog a long time, I never put a counter on it until July 20th. It really amazes me that my little ole blog would have 1000 visits in less than 2 months!

So...what can we do to celebrate? I can't get out of bed to even go see what goodies I have stashed away. And even if I could, I can't upload them since I'm using a borrowed laptop without my picture editing software. Guess it'll be time to go shopping for some blog candy....and I'll be hitting the PaperTrey Ink site later tonight for the reveal of their new Christmas stamps, so maybe I'll just pick up a little extra something while I'm there.

You can check back tomorrow....hopefully I'll be able to put an image up of whatever goodies I find.

So post a comment here on THIS post...and I'll draw a name next Friday!

And if anyone knows Ida Faye...tell her I'm still waiting for her to email me from the cardstock giveaway earlier this month.

EDITING TO ADD:

I can't figure out a way to post the picture, but I ordered the newly-released Believe set of acrylic stamps at Papertrey Ink. Isn't that Santa so cute??? And you can check out the designers' gallery here!. Just in case you'd like to even more of this set before you take your chance to win, check out Nichole's blog entry.

Hope you feel better soon. Sorry to hear about your back. Sounds painful. My mum had a lot of back surgery too. But the last year she found two things too help the most 1) never ever vacum (unfortunaly for my father who now has too. lol) 2) special back excerise in very very hot water. This is a project offer from the hospital where she used to have surgery. They are specialized in back surgery amongst other stuff and these excerises in hot water are helping a lot of people with different back problems. Its not swimming because thats not good for the back. What exactly I am not sure but if you would be intrested I could try and find more information.

The santa you bought was very cute:) I love santas. I cannot wait until Christmas as my parents collect them so our house gets santa occupied then:D

Congrats on all the hits and hope you have a nice sunday:)

Kathy W said...

Ida Faye said...

So sorry to hear about your back problems. I was confimed to bed last year for over three months - I'll pray for your speedy recovery. The Believe stamp set is great blog candy. I just ordered Holiday Treats earlier today. Thanks!

Congrats on all the hits...thanks for offering sweet candy!
Wow Rachel...couldn't believe it when I read your post about you canceling your surgery & then re-scheduling it for Monday! I didn't even have to check where you're from...I knew it was the U.S.! My husband was on the URGENT list for back surgery in Canada...and the waiting list was for one year! Fortunately, he was admitted to the hospital when he could no longer stand up, so he was able to have the surgery sooner! He's doing great now though. I'll be praying that all goes well with your surgery & you'll recover quickly!
Blessings,
~Brenda H.
