It's Here! It's Here!

It's arrived! It's here! Woo hoo! Yippee!

You don't know what I'm talking about? Oh, I forgot, some of you may not know, some of you have not yet been blessed to meet ADHD-Jo at Monkey's are Funny. Now don't let the name scare you away! ADHD-Jo is NOT a monkey but she IS funny. She has quite a "cheerful heart" healing ministry over at her blog so you must go check it out.

Anyway ~ A couple of weeks ago she decided to join the "Prize Give-away" band wagon so she held a drawing to whoever entered. Here are some of the details from her blog, of what the contest entailed just so you don't get confused.

"Everyone that adds a comment to this post and/or my next three (that's 4 posts total for those of you that are mathematically challenged) will win a prize. I'm not sure what it will be.

So maybe the prize will be a book. maybe it will be something else. It could be a piece of candy or maybe even a clothespin, or a Shrinky Dink---(if you have kids or at least know someone who does, you know what a shrinky dink is) Maybe the prize will be a brand new PENCIL!. The options are endless."

You can imagine how much I wanted to win this can't you! Well, You guessed it, I won! And I've saved this moment to open this unknown prize with you. So are you ready? Ok, let's get started.

ADHD-Jo Prize

Here is the package as it arrived in the mail, except the postman could actually read the addresses.

Hmmm, looks like a white box.

Thank you ADHD-Jo!

Handcrafted keychain?!? And she said she wasn't crafty! LOL!! Too funny. She certainly put a lot of time into it. If you've ever done shrinky dinks - you know that key chain had to be at least 12" long before she cooked it, which means she spent a lot of time coloring.

Too funny. What a great referal blog. Have a great day. Enjoy your lovely prizes!

Barb said...

That was great... I'll have to go visit her to make sure I get in on the next 'great give-a-way".

Edie, I'm curious... do you post ALL of your blogs at 1:00 in the morning?

Have a blessed day,

My ADHD Me said...

On Purpose said...

Congrats Edie...those truly are some great gifts from the heart.

Irritable Mother said...

I want to see a picture of you sporting your nifty badge!

Debra said...

Oh man! I want one of those shrinky dinks. Never heard of it-well, my son is 18, guess he's too old!

Of course Edie! I am thrilled you want to have a Sparrowgrass collection! I am more than thrilled-I am in awe of God. I had no idea He would use me this way. I am holding back the tears...
Love, Debra

Stephanie said...

Fun! It must be weird in a way to receive real live objects from someone in blog land! :)

Truth4thejourney said...

This was so much fun! I felt that I was right there opening the prize with you! Fun, fun! Loved it!


Alene said...

Too cute! I'm cracking up. How fun though? You can tell a story with those pics. Love it. Blessings girl.

My ADHD Me said...

Note to comment from Stephanie- Don't worry, they weren't actually alive. Weird, yes...but not alive.

To debra- you too could be the proud owner of a MyADHDMe keychain. Just enter the next contest. You would, however, be expected to use it. Could you take that kind of pressure??

Edie said...

Barb - I have just started scheduling my posts but I have often posted at 1:00 am or later (earlier?).

ADHD-Jo 1st comment - Do go visit My ADHD Me! You will have a great time! She is lots of fun and has a beautiful heart.

Irritable Mother - Ok, just as soon as I see that video your son suggested of you handling their fight. LOL

Debra - See ADHD-Jo's 2nd comment. Thank you for allowing me to use your photos! I'm so excited!

Stephanie - Yes it is hard to imagine that all of you are REAL people! LOL

ADHD-Jo 2nd comment - What do you think this is a chat room? ;D

My ADHD Me said...

This isn't a chatroom? Oh dear. And here I was chatting away. I guess I go say something on your next post...er...I mean something else.

P.S. I DID visit MyMADHMe's blog. Cracked me up.

Oh brother. Did you really think that was my REAL return address? That was ADHD-JO's address, not mine.
