There will only be about twelve hours left in the NBUS Challenge #3 when this post goes live, so if you were thinking about entering, or entering again (up to three times), you had better scoot your hiney into gear!! Click HERE.
Once the challenge closes, I'll be encased in a hermitically sealed chamber with Dr. and Mrs. Condom Dot Ram ~ oh, oops, I mean Random Dot Com ~ oh, oops, I mean Random Dot Org and Hammy the Hamster. We will be misting over 540 pieces of paper with your names written on them with StazOn ink. We will then toss them against the wall one-by-one and see which names stick. Winner! Over here! Winner!
I'll be back with that list of winners in my next post, which will be no later than noon PST on Sunday, January 25, 2015. I just realized that Virginia announces her monthly challenge winners on the 25th of the month, so that coincides this time with my challenge. It should be an exciting day with so many of you entering both of our challenges! Oh, also, the PTI monthly challenge is on the 25th and there's prolly lots of other fun schtuff going on, too! We might break the internet!
Of course, I'll thank you properly in the winners post, but I can't post this in the between time without also saying thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who entered!! To say I went over the whelmed point about 300 entries ago is an understatement!
Today, for inspiration, I'd like to reshare a few Valentines that I made and posted in previous years and also introduce you to some of the talented new friends who have found the Playhouse.
