The Crazy Suburban Mom: A Thanksgiving Giveaway for my Filofax Pals...

A Thanksgiving Giveaway for my Filofax Pals...

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States.  A time to reflect on gratitude...


 Not focus on the nail I just broke...

Or the wall of stink ( A melange of old meat and rotten eggs fermenting in a dumpster)  that hit me when I opened my Thanksgiving turkey an hour ago.

Or how I went to the grocery store to find only thirty pound, seventy-five dollar birds left.

No. Today I'm not giving any of this  another thought, Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for what I have...Which at the moment are several  D'Artagnan Free Range Organic Chickens  from Kings that smell fresh as chickeny daises.

And I'm very thankful for all you guys...

 A blog with no readers isn't much of a blog.  You're visits and generous comments make me feel like part of a community and not so alone in this world.  Without all of you my blog would be a sad, solitary endeavor.   I've been blogging near four years now and for the first time I feel  part of something wonderful.  Thank you all for helping me sort out problems, for your encouragement and  all your generosities  in this last year.

Yesterday I went to Staples to get a date stamper and ink pad, I've wanted one for a while...


I love the way it looks.  Clearly, haven't quite got the logistics worked out though...

But I picked up a few things you've all commented on recently and I'm going to give them away to one of my readers.   


I know everyone loves the Martha tabs and I got a lot of comments about the dividers I just added. Staples had them in stock (P.S. They had a few sets and at $2.99 they are a bargain) so I picked up a set of those too.

It's an easy giveaway! I'll run it until Sunday Novemeber 25th at 11:59 pm EST.  

Just leave a comment to enter and it's open worldwide.   Oh, and please be a subscriber...  'Cause that's kind of the point.

Love you all!

What a nice thing to do! I've got a month off to recover from back surgery, so I can catch up on some things like organizing my Malden & setting up the other Fillos I've acquired - and reading & sibscribing to your blog! Love your blog! I've been inspired to go off in search of a pocket Rio in pink, and paint my toenails "Beach Bum Blue" by your posts. Yea!!

This is so cool that you are doing a giveaway. As I am in close proximity to a well stocked Staples, I won't include myself in the drawing but I do think it is a nice thing to do.
