#100–Give oh GIVEAWAY!

The big #100 is here (100 posts on My Insanity), and it is a time of giving!
First of all a couple of things I have received…

Pink and Green Mama GAVE me this award. You’ll have to go here to read all of the nice things she said about me. Thanks so much!

Also, my friend Becky had a GIVEAWAY on her blog and I won!!!
She brought by these gorgeous scrapbook papers and some chocolate (not around long enough to be pictured) last week. Thanks, Becky!

And most importantly Barry’s famous molasses cookies were mailed and received this week.

Remember the proceeds from the cookie purchase went to the Nielson family, who continues to be in need of your prayers and support. The picture at the top of this post shows how I packaged them.

Here is the man himself with the packing label I made.

I decided to say they were from “Barry’s Bakery.” I think he got a kick out of that. He really could open his own bakery, but it would be a MAN’s bakery. No meringues and such. Everything rich, dense, and served in large portions!

And my hand-painted Halloween cookies, you ask? Well, my most generous and fantastic recipient of my cookies and I agreed that it would be more fun to get them a little closer to Halloween. Which is coming soon. Which brings me to the GIVEAWAY portion of this post…

I am going to bake/paint an additional dozen Hand-painted Halloween Butter Cookies to give to one of you lucky blog readers! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me which of my insane posts is your favorite (yes, I know you don’t have time to read all 100 posts–so cheat and pretend like you really like one on my front page, if you like–I’ll never know). Make sure you have a blog or an email address so I can contact you if you win. I can only mail to the contiguous U.S. (sorry AK and HI, and the rest of you all).

Remember…this is what the cookies look like–only Halloween-themed–and possibly slightly less detailed.

The giveaway will close at 8:31pm (Arizona time) on Sunday, Oct. 19. Why? Because at that moment, my baby will turn 1 year old! Here is another way I used my Welcome pumpkins last year.
Alright…talk to me!
