A Big Day

A drawing, a prize for me, my blog anniversary and a new blog.

First:   My cat's name is   SPOT 

I decided that no one guessed his name correctly so I will do a drawing.
I gave everyone a number by order of first participation.

1) Lataina
2) Audra
3) Ana
4) Cote
5) Ascension
6) Drora
7) Maria
8) Malu
9) Jazzi
10) Rosamargarita

I had my husband shuffle and cut a deck of cards, he didn't know why.

The winner is Malu.

Malu, I will email you,  welcome to my blog and thank you for playing.

I think that Rosamargarita was the closed to his name, with her guess of freckles, so I've decided to send her a second prize.

Rosamargarita please email me your address.

BTW  -  Spot was Data's cat on the 'Star Trek, Next Generation'  TV Series and was also in the the movie 'Star Trek, Generations', which came out in Nov of 1994.   We decided to take our Spot in just before we left to see the movie, we stopped and bought a cat collar on our way home.   As you saw by his nose he has freckles or spots, he also has them on his ears and the bottoms of  his paws.  He also loves to slide into our seat or our spot as soon as we get up and sometimes before we really get up. I think that it is a good name for him.

Second:  I received Jazzi's darling give-away prize.  Jaynie and I love these beautiful pillows/cushions.  These will be great in Jaynie's Loft.  I'm just not sure if Jaynie is going to have a bedroom yet or just an office/craftsroom with a daybed.

Third:  I started blogging one year ago today.   I'm so glad that I did, it has been a great experience.  I feel very lucky  that I have found so many friends.

Fourth:  I started a new blog  M's Lists   to try to  get a bit more organize.  I started by organizing a fairly long list of mini tutorials,   I will continue to add more.   I hope that you will take a look and let me know what you think.

Thanks again to everyone that participated in my game.

I hope that you had a great weekend and have a great day.

Thank you for visiting, Mary
