You Are Bubblegum Flavored Gum

You are friendly, outgoing, and energetic.
You love life, and you can always find some reason to smile.

You are a bit hyper, and you're always looking for your next challenge.
You love getting things done - and you are usually on the go.

Your confidence and positive attitude makes you a very attractive person.
You can be a little flaky at times, but people are able to overlook that - because you're so fun!

What Flavor Gum Are You?

I have to agree with all of the above.
I am feeling in the mood to clear the bookcase and so would like to offer a free book. It's the winner of the Man Booker PrIze 2007, so I guess it counts as literature in the broadest sense. It's called The Gathering By Anne Enright. It's described as a family epic and I found it an engaging read. It only took me one Sunday afternoon because I was so drawn into the text


So to be in the draw for this novel all you have to do is post a comment to this post before 1800 (6pm) Wednesday 9th April 2008. I will then use the random number generator to select a winner.
To the PIF (pay it forward) winners your handmade gifts are now finished and will be setting off sometime next week. I have really enjoyed making them and hope that you will enjoy them.
Just a quick glimpse at some of the goodies I bought over the weekend. I have resolved to try and use up my materials during April but these were on special and I fell in love with them. I do that a lot. Total lack of will power.

I'm sure you can see why?

And this is just a glimpse of the button stash.

Hope you all had a great weekend doing things you enjoy doing.

I love the new fabrics - what are you going to make with them? Or, like me, are you just going to add them to the pile of fabrics to admire & do something with "someday"?

Wonderful buttons! Great finds. I couldn't link to the gum quiz, I'm sure Id be boring old spearmint anyway!

How fun to find things you love and inspire you! Love your button stash - there are so many decorating ideas for buttons.

I too can't wait to see what you make using your goodies.

Just checked out your song list. Hillsong is my daughter's favorite Christian band and Moon River, well, it's what I danced to with my father at my wedding. Needless to say, enjoyed listening to AND reading your blog this morning!

I recently heard an Anne Enright interview on NPR. It was really interesting and the book sounds great. But then, I always enjoy the Man Booker Prize winners!
