1 week till D-Day.. I think we need more blog candy

I think I just may have accepted the fact that I have only 1 week till the big 4-0.. I love that we've been celebrating my birthday for the past 2 weeks. It's made this transition into 'older age' a little easier.. LOL
Did I hear someone say we need just a little more blog candy to celebrate??? What should it be this week.. How about a $10 gift certificate to......
So what do you need to do to win? HMMM... How about posting a comment telling me what you like about my blog (or) what you would like to see more of.
Here's an extra surprise.. if by my actual birthday on the 26th there are 5,000 views to my blog... if you who refer readers over to my blog (have them post in their comment that you referred them) or.. if you subscribe to my blog.... You all will be entered into a separate drawing for an additional $10 gift certificate to 'eclectic paperie'.. Yep you heard me right.. I think I've totally lost my mind..

You all have until Monday the 25th at 11:59 PM to post your comments. I will draw the winner Tuesday the 26th sometime between cake and presents.. LOL

You're my kind of girl. The only thing I like more than winning blog candy is giving it away! I have a give-away going right now as a matter of fact. Gift certificates is a great idea though. I'll have to try that one. I like your calendar pages and all of your ideas so I subscribed!
