ALMOST TO 50K

EDITED TO ADD: I go by my first name, not my middle. My first name is Amanda. *smiles* Also, I am going to keep this post bumped up to the top so people can find it, but I will be posting more, so please take a moment to scroll down to find the latest stuff -- this will stay up until 50K is reached.
***************************
I am so amazed that so many people have been interested in little old stamping me. Okay, well, not me actually, probably mostly my work, but either way, I'm SUPER FLATTERED! I appreciate all the comments you leave me. They really do validate me and make me feel like I should keep on going with this blog. You all ROCK!

So, I have decided to do a small giveaway to show my appreciation to you. I will have two separate contests. Both of these contests will win you blog candy (yummy embellishments, and other such fun stuff).

The first one is to guess my middle name. You can post your guess as a comment to this post and then I will do a drawing of everyone who has guessed right. It will be fun to read your guesses I am sure. You may guess as many times as you like.

The second contest is just a drawing from my current subscribers. On the day I reach 50K posts, I will do a drawing from those already subscribed, so if you are not, this is your fair warning to do so. Thank you for your continued support and don't forget to check back and see what's new and who the winners are. *hugs*

Oh, and don't forget to check out the links on the side. I have updated them and added some fun new sites that I like, as well as some totally kick butt blogs that you will love!

Hi Amanda - seeing as how I know you're a Grey's Anatomy fan (loved the last GA post), I'd love to guess that your middle name is Iphigenia, but I'm actually going to guess Marie. Fingers crossed! :)

Debbie said...

Well I am going to take a stab at this too and guess that your middle name is Lynn. Hope I hit the nail on the head!!
