~Liberty Queen~

This little sweetie is listed on ebay...along with my All Hallow's Eve Vintage style cones. Liberty will end on Sunday evening and the cones will end on Monday evening...

And a couple of other things to "ramble" about....let's see how many people read my ramblings and you quiet ones.....well?? Read on. First, yesterday my head was spinning....we went to Alltel, to get a couple of new phones. Hubby accidently let his phone go through the wash...well liquid and cell phones DO NOT MIX!! We had our phones for almost 4 years and mine is still just fine. Well, with Verizon taking over this summer, prices and such will be higher...I didn't want to renew our contract, because with the one we had...more minutes, less money, etc. enough said! *smirk*

We wanted to get Jordan a phone. So many times he has used ours, when he is fishing with a friend and so forth (a save my sanity bit - ya know). I had decided on the phone, that I thought was a "good" phone, but not too many "bells and whistles", so that we could figure out how to use it and not spending an "arm and leg" every month and yes, a new contract (sign our life away).

Hubby ended up stopping in and well, let's just say a bit over an hour later with him there....we were walking out with the same phones and same plan that I had decided on. Well, I had to stop back for them, after they were activated. Funny how that works. Sometimes I think men are worst then women.

Okay, now onto my other thought....I want to have a giveaway! It is in CELEBRATION of 100 FOLLOWERS!! (I still don't get the whole following bit, but jumping on the "band wagon" anyways) I will be posting the giveaway, in a few days...as time allows, but those of you that read about it hear, post a comment and let me know you read about it here, on this post and I will drop your names into the hat as a "freebie" entry.

Here is a little "ditty" about the details of my giveaway....I will be having you post about it on your blog (if you have one), with a fun little graphic and also if you follow my blog, well you are automatically entered in. Let's see how many of you read my ramblings and leave a comment here!

Have a great day! I have much to do. Toodles, ~Tonya

I read your blog every time I see it on the blog roll. The Halloween Party Annie is my favorite craft I ever made and it was from your oh- so-creative mind. Those cell phone companies are a bit scary with those two year contracts aren't they? I think mine is up this month with Verizon. Be careful and watch that bill. They were always trying to charge me for extras. I want a cell phone for just talking. I don't need texting, I don't want to surf the web on it or download music. The funny thing is on the phone I have if you hit the wrong button just once you were charged for using the web. I got all the "extra" charges removed but it would always cost me at least a half hour of my time to get it taken off. I finally had them remove (put a block) on a lot of the features that could cost me more money. Anyway know you see that you aren't the only one who rambles. HeeHee!

I'm excited for your giveaway. You have darling stuff. I had to giggle about your phone situation. You sound like me. We just went with Verizion about 6 months ago. My inlaws are on the family plan with us and it saves slot of money. I think our portion is only $40.00 a month. Not bad for 2 phones. You may want to check into it. I'll keep watching for more posts :0).

we have phones that we purchased at Walmart and they are tracfones..so NO contracts and they work off of all the cell towers..so we have better coverage and we pay for the minutes we also have lifetime double your minutes and they roll over as well..and you have at least 6 months to use them all..just a thought..we will never go with a contract again..this is so much easier and faster you do it all on line..:)

Hi Tonya, Would love to enter your giveaway,really love your designs,I have most of your patterns & check your blog every few days am also a newsletter receiver.Unfortunately I don't have a blog

Colleen said...

I'm with Cat Nap on the phone deal. We also have Tracfones and have better coverage area than most around here....and we pay a LOT less! We were Verizon customers for several years but decided that we paid way too much a month for what we used them for. We're not telephone people so we only carry them for emergencies, etc.

Love your blog and yes, I read all your ramblings and would like to be entered.

Have a good weekend :)

Cell phones, Oh gosh, Been there done that!! I have washed so many cell phones last 3 years. Thank Goodness for Craigslist and insurance LOL We have 4 on our contracts. Only mine don't go through the wash LOL. Anyhow, Can't wait to see what you come up with next. :) Have a great day!

Tonya... I'm surprised that you could even think that people don't read your blog 'ramblins' as you call them. I LOVE reading your blog. You are hilarious girl!

The phone thing reminded me of the last time we went to get phones...hah! It was a mess.
Now my hubby has one that's a pay as you go, and I don't have one. I don't want one anymore! We share his...LOL.

Please enter me in your giveaway. I'm excited to see the details!
