My word! As of January 1, two years of blogging have come and gone. I look back every now and then and reread my older posts. What sweet memories! Along the way, I hope that I have entertained you, inspired you, and cheered you. This blog has been a labor of love. And I am very grateful to have made a lot of friends across the globe. Isn’t it all so magical?
Marty, my cheeky blog greeter, has been hopping up and down, annoying me nonstop to hold an anniversary giveaway. All right already! Sheesh, he can be such a pest. To appease him and show gratitude to my faithful readers, I have arranged to purchase a beautiful, handmade prize. Hold on to your underwear!
A sweet friend of mine recently opened an etsy shop. Her name is Jackie and she is a very talented polymer clay artist. Lovely pens are included in her offerings. Since all of you are busy writing up your new year’s resolutions, you really need a special pen to keep on task! I am a self-confessed “penoholic”. I have glasses and crocks filled with them all around the house. And special pens are reserved for special uses.

So the winner of this giveaway will get to select a gorgeous pen on Jackie’s etsy site, The Pleasant Pheasant! Here are the rules for entering:
- Visit Jackie’s etsy site first, and then leave a comment on this post, telling me your favorite pen.
- Don’t try to bribe Marty with extra carrots. It’s a waste of time and vegetables. He’s a rascal and won’t put in a good word for you. He’ll just eat your carrots.
- If you enter and follow my blog, your name will get put in the hat twice!
- Entries outside the U.S. will be accepted. However, only entries from bloggers with active web sites will be eligible. If you are “anonymous” or don’t routinely post on your blog, your entry will be deleted.
This is a quick giveaway. The last day to enter is Wednesday, January 6. Good luck everyone, and thank you for cheering me on the past two years!
