A Meme, and My First Giveaway!

June 6, 2009

I’ve been tagged by Stefanie to do this meme, plus I’d like to do a little giveaway as a way to say “thank you” to everyone who read this blog — it means so much to me.

Rules: Try to answer the following questions, and leave your answers in the comments section.

I’ve made these a little tricksy since some of my close friends read this blog and I want to make it at least a little challenging! Whoever gets the most right answers first, will win their choice of owl print (8 x 10 print)! You will have the prestigious honor of being the first (besides my mom) to have an owl print by me. You’ll be able to say… “I won the first owl print, waaaaaay back when, when she was just a struggling blogger…”
