Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo! 200th Post Giveaway

On the illustrious occasion of this, my 200th post, I am officially announcing my second book giveaway!

Beginning today and for the next three days, simply post a comment below (naming your favorite of my last 100 posts), and you will qualify to win a copy of my second book. The resident organizer of all things (yes, that would be my husband) is threatening to donate an entire boxful of this literary masterpiece in order to clear out our garage, so this is not a great sacrifice. Having said that, I'm told it's a pretty good read.

The title is "Awaken Your Spiritual Power: The Fairy Godmother Isn't Coming," and I will be drawing 10 winners at random from the comments section below. Those who follow my blog will be given two chances to win, so if you haven't signed on for the ride as yet, this is the perfect time to do so! What's more, if you mention my giveaway in your blog and provide a link, your name will go into the pot an extra time, making you a triple threat to win.

NOW FOR THE EXCITING BONUS: The very first person whose name I draw will also receive a set of papergild notes (in the color of your choice) from Junky Heirloom. Go take a look at the colors and drool a bit, if you like. I love them so much I am buying a set or two for myself.

Good luck to everyone! You have until Friday, May 22nd at 11:59 PM to respond. I will announce the winners Saturday morning.

I can't believe my luck this morning! I always tend to take a little glee in being the first comment on a blog, but to be the first comment on your giveaway, now that's something to enjoy the whole day through! I think I'm a follower, so I"ll check that after I'm done posting, and I'll post a link as well.
The most difficult part of this assignment is to determine my favorite of the last 100 posts. I thoroughly enjoy your AI discussions (and will miss them terribly after tomorrow), and your tributes to different members of your family. I love it when you share gospel tidbits and insight, becaus you have such a gift with words. But I think your poetry posts are my fave, especially the last two that you dedicated to your grandkids, even though the poems weren't written for those specific pictures.
Mostly what I love about your posts, is that I read and every one makes me happy. Thank you, Granny Sue!

Momza said...

Well this is hard...my most favorite posts are your poetry.
Especially the week of Easter.
And any post that has a whimsical image/pic on it (like the praying mantis one)...and when you talk about your family...you and your mothers' heart totally rock.

p.s. love the title!

Joyful Noise said...

I would have to say "ditto" to jen's comments. I have had you on my "blog reader" for the past two months, but I just signed up to offically follow you : ). Your last two poems that you posted about your grandkids were precious. Brought tears to my eyes...

I don't follow anyone, but you are "linked" to me. Guess I'll go figure out how to follow.
My favorite of your blogs have got to be when you write about your loved ones and all their glorious attributes.
I just wish I could give the people I love such an honor. I can't even begin think of deep meanings to relationships like you can. Such a gift.

favorite picture post:
the one where you took the pictures of your neighbor's tree in all of the different seaons. that was so fun to look at!

Karen said...

I have to pick!?? I am pretty sure I can't - I did like the tour of your house, I am floored by ALL of your poetry, I am pretty sure I want to meet all of your children because you describe them to be such great people (which I am sure they are), and I am deeply touched by your testimony of the Savior.

What now!? Oh well, just pick me.;)

karen said...

My favorite post(s) are your poetry, your house tour, and I really liked the birthday post for your son a couple of days ago. You and your family always sound like people who are good to know.
I have your blog linked on mine, and now I will go be a follower on yours. Should have done that before now. PICK ME!!

Happy 200th post Way to go

Fiauna said...

Yay, you! I love your blog, so I'm sure I'd love your book, as well. I'll go check it out, even if I don't win a copy.

Anyway, my favorite post (can't give you the title of it. Sorry.) was the one with the poem about the shepherd. Oh, I loved that post.

Lisalulu said...

I love all your posts, All the DWTS updates, and AI who's who, and the house tours, and all your birthday acknowledgements and your poems and photos... but I enjoy your spiritual enlightenments the best! adversity and perspective, my favorite

Ryan A said...

I love your post about Todd the best. It is obvious that he is your favorite based on the amazing contrast of colors you put in his post. I wish I could be so lucky. I really want one of your books to add to the three or four I have lying around in my room. Can you sign this one? By the way....I am a follower of your blog! That should total three chances for me to win.

Susan Anderson said...

Just what you need, Ryan, a few more of my books. (But hey, come on down. I'll load up your trunk!)

And while you are indeed a blog-follower of mine (at last!), you may recall that there was considerable coercion involved...

As for your color-envy, if you win, I promise to autograph your book in fluorescent markers...one hue for each letter of my name. What could be better than that?

I would so enjoy winning this as I am truly interested in anything spiritual or self-empowering! And I really enjoy your spiritual insights!

And honestly, I'm such a bookaholic that I'll read anything happily so I gotta get me some new books before I am reduced to reading the back of the mouthwash bottle LOL

No doubt, for ME, your "Journey into Narcissim" was one of MY absolute favorites. But, then again, I absolutely love moments of expressive self-love...I, personally, find such times, oh so refreshing!

However, I have to admit I have never read one of your posts that I did not enjoy...the house tour was awesome and when you write about your children I am reminded time and time again why Natalie thinks you and I would be great neighbors and friends...who knows, maybe one day.

Sitting on our porches, sharing stories about the greatest people on earth (our children and grandchildren) with "Adam" purring in the background.

Oh..you are so right. "Tracks of My Tears"...simply amazing as are you!

Great blog...thanks to Snarky for bringing "Sue's News, Views 'n Muse" into my life!

Snarky Belle said...

EEEKKK! I can't believe I pushed it so close. But, you know better than to count me out! :)

"Becoming an Artist of Life"...post perfection! Also, you know I am a fan of your recap wonders as well as the family tributes.

And I was a follower before being a follower was cool! ;)
