A Question and a New Contest
Friday, September 23rd, 2011

I’m clearing off my promo shelf! Next week, I head to Romanticon, and I know I’ll be back with more wonderful prizes to give away. In the meantime, I have two items I’ve had sitting there for a while because I didn’t want to give them away. Sniff

Both of these prizes would make wonderful Halloween accessories. Who wouldn’t look stylish carrying this coffin-shaped clutch with a beaded “third eye” hairclip nestled in their tresses? Both prizes are from Mistress Rae’s Decadent Designs.

What do you have to do to win?
Post a comment—here or on Facebook. Simple as that.

This prize package will be awarded next Tuesday, September 27th!

And because it’s only fair that I give you something to comment on, here’s a question…

What is something you really enjoy doing that is a chore or a bore to many people?

    I would love to say I love cleaning. Truth be told I hate it with a passion. That one sounds so good. Oh, well.

    I am a outgoing, energetic person. But I love to sit and do detailed needle work by hand. Most of the time when people who don’t know me well catch me doing it, they can’t put the aspects of my personality together. You could say it is my meditation. I love the peace of working on a very detailed project. There is something very soothing about the rythmn of the needle and thread. In the end, if I am doing it right, I end up with something pretty.

    I enjoy baking/cooking and sewing/quilting. Most would think of those as “housewife work”, but they calm me…lol

    I love to clean. When I am cleaning I will sometime put some music on to clean to. I miss cleaning out stalls, which is something I did growing up. That was a time for me to spend with my animals or my family animals.

    Becky I used to volunteer at a boarding facility that did lessons and trail rides when I was I kid. We would feed and clean the stalls and take out trail rides. I LOVED it!

    Nicole, I loved it too. The Stables I work at just boarded horses for other people, but the owner showed her horse. I enjoyed taking care of the horses and cleaning out the stalls. I miss doing it.

    I love to sweep and mop floors. I have all wood flooring so just seeing those dust balls does crazy things to me. I love shining up the floors and looking down at them as I’m coming down the stairs. It’s crazy but I love my floors to shine. To me it’s a sign of a clean house.

    I love cooking all day, complicated meals. I love to make crazy, complex desserts. And then….I usually don’t eat it. I just serve it to my friends and family. I hate eating what I cook.

    I love to do dishes. It relaxes me and I can get lost in thought while doing them. Everyone leaves me alone while I do dishes, and in a house that has 5 adults and a 3 year old that is something that is very rare. I find that I can think through problems and even come up with solutions or just work out my anger about something (being careful not to break anything..lol).
    Debra :lol:

    I actually enjoy raking up all the fall leaves. My daughter and I make a contest out of it to see who can make the biggest pile and then we play in the piles. We have a great time and though it winds up taking all afternoon we actually do get all the leaves picked up.. :lol:

    I’ll preface this by admitting I’m a total weirdo for loving this: laundry! I love doing laundry! The best part is pulling the lint off the dryer sheet. Makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something major :)
