A Birthday Giveaway!!

Today I'm celebrating 47 years on the roller coaster of life!! As much as I like receiving presents on special days, I like giving them even more. Since I'm 47 today and a 4 and a 7 equal eleven, which, in numerology is 1 plus 1 equals 2, (are you still with me?).....I'm giving away a present to two lovely bloggers out there. Yay!!

The first name drawn will recieve the sweet little bear that just didn't get picked for the prom (ie....she's been listed three times and this morning pinned a WISH tag to herself and said with the most pathetic little pout you've ever seen, "I wish for a bearmom." Now how could I not grant her wish? And on my birthday no less. I'm telling you, my bears just pull on this chickie doodles heartstrings. ;o)

The second name drawn will receive a half dozen roses....in the form of my photo art cards! Now when was the last time you received half a dozen roses from someone? A dozen? Sure. And how long did they last? Well, there you go. You don't need to find a vase, cut them under water, or any of that silliness. You can even share the love if you want to.....or not, and frame them for yourself!

All you have to do to is leave a message saying, "Pin a rose on my nose, it's Aleta's birthday." How simple is that? I will draw names on Sunday morning (Pacific Time). I won't tell you a time because I don't exactly know when I'll wake up and feel like drawing. Ha! Rest assured I'll post a little something on Sunday with the lucky recipients names.

Until then, Happy Birthday to me! Make it a glorious weekend!!! It's going to be a hot, hot, hhhhot one here!! You'll find me.....in the pool!!

Warmest (97 degrees today and 102 tomorrow!!) bear hugs, Aleta

I found your wonderful blog last night, but was impolite and did not even take the time to speak. I am so sorry; I was too busy having such a good time. But as I come tonight, what do I find but your birthday and a giveaway of a precious bear. I do so love bears and my heartstrings were also pulled by her sweet face.

So, Pin a rose on my nose, it's Aleta's birthday.

Happy Birthday Aleta!!! So glad to find you and will try to not be so rude by not speaking the next time I come by.

Blessings,
Robin/Southern Bella
