Look Who's Coming! Early Santa Alert!

I figgered I best give y'all a heads up on this one. Seems like the guy in the red suit is wearing his summer whites! Brrrr! Or maybe yummy, since that snow looks awfully cool in the 90 plus temps we've been having!

Mr. Santa is almost ready so keep your eyes peeled for his formal arrival!
Don't forget to sign up for my blogging giveaway; all info in below post.

Better Late than never?! Let's Giveaway!

I know I promised a Blogaversary Party and Giveaway. Well, life happens, so once we get over that idea, here I am. I have actually been quite busy creating like crazy and taking one or two orders as well. So, let's play!

I now have well over 20,000 hits - still not getting over that one - and I still can't believe I have been blogging this long. The blessing for me in all of this has been the hands extended in friendship from all over the country and the world. Thank you, friends for sticking with me.

I want to have a great giveaway. So, let's get the party rolling. First off, I am wanting to give away one of my BRAND SPANKING NEW primitive doll pattern:

These gals are super easy and man oh man, are they FUN to make. You will get your name in the drawing for this by leaving a comment and it would be extremely nice of you to add my Blondie's Blog Giveaway to your side bar or even blog about my giveaway!

I will also throw into the pot a neato pincushion

side 1 side 2

There is a sweet little felted and charm adorned pin that accompanies the pincushion. I am addicted to pincushions - they are in almost every room in my house. I am a firm believer that one is always lonesome for more.

Okay, so let's get this straight. Read this, pass it along, tell me how much you love me and you may just win one of these gifties. Oh and I guess I should say that this ends July 1. Plenty of time for y'all to enter!

Go ahead, Stick out your tongue!

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue...If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today.)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

A dear friend just recently sent me an email with some of this info listed. I think I blogged about this a few years ago, but, guess what? I am doing it again. These are such simple tasks we take for granted. And it's good to remember these signs. Blessings to everyone today. I will be back with a blogaversary post later. I promise.
