2000 reasons to throw MORE parties

What would you do with a simple clay pot?

Now before you answer that, there’s a reason I’m asking. ๐Ÿ™‚

Parties are generally to celebrate a focused occasion.ย If you’ve been following for awhile, you’ll remember this last big party at Funky Junk.

I totally remember this day. I was… gaaaah… 1000!!!!

And I still feel the same way today. I’m still like, “I can’t believe that many people are checkin’ in to this little here blog in the corner of Canada, from the smallest littlest town ever with one 3 way stop! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, we all know there areย more subscribers/feed readers than followers, however the followers gadget has a certain element to it because it’s VISUAL. You can SEE those that are following you rather than a number. So that is why I celebrate it!

Honestly, the number isn’t really all that important.ย But what it does tell me is, what has lived inside myย head truly seems to have a place in reality-ville. And that in itself is what thrills me!

Ok, ’nuff gushing. Wanna know what’s in store?

In only 4 short months, it’s nearly time to party again!

What’s shakin’?

A group of us are very busy behind the scenes wrapping presents (and making them for that fact!)ย and planning activites.ย ๐Ÿ™‚ Each day there’ll be:


Each event day will have something fun to do or interesting to learn. Perhaps it’s an interactive event you can take part in .Or it’s about your fav tips on something. Maybe it’ll be a quiz on what you would make out of a piece of junk?ย The ‘games’ will be different daily.


Ohhhh yes! Every party has to have presents! Each day will feature a new giveaway, giving you a chance to win something delightful!ย All theย draws will be open to enter until the last one is posted. Then it’s draw day! Some draws will be held by random org.com. Some draws may be based on a submission or comment. Tune in to see. ๐Ÿ™‚

Do I have to be a follower to play?

You do not have to be a follower or subscriber to enter the draws, however I invite you to do so, so you don’t miss a thing!ย  Being one will also give you extra chances to win stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚


The event starts once the follower’s widget flips to 2000. From there, check daily. There may be posts back to back or a short break in between. It’s a surprise party after all. ๐Ÿ™‚

How many days will the event run?

Ohhhh… I dunno. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a surprise party, I can’t give you all the details!

What to bring?

Food! I wish…ย If you’d like to play along withย the games, here’s one to prepare for.

What would you do with a simple clay pot/s?

Grab one or a few and start playing. You may use it in more ways than one. Create your post, then select DRAFT. When the pot party is up (HA!), you’re ready to roll! You may also use an older post if you wish. All I ask is that you link up to the event within your post.ย I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Don’t have a blog? No prob! Check out Photobucket. It’s a free online way to store digital pictures. You’ll have to create an account, but once you do, it’s easy to download a picture. Once the pic is loaded up, select the ‘url address’ of the picture and add that to the link up feature during the party.

Ok, time to sit back and wait for…

this meter to flip. ๐Ÿ™‚ See you then!

Oh. I nearly forgot to ask! Are ya comin’? ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Congratulations on almost 2000 followers! Wow!
    Of course it’s easy to see why. Your blog is full of good, fun stuff.

    I hope to get over and join in the fun.


  2. What fun! Golly, there just is no end to your ambitions (thank goodness!) I always look forward to whatever you are doing because everything is just soooooo cool! I guess I will become a “pot head” – racking my brain to come up with something worthy!

  3. Oh, I love a good pot party! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am a subscriber since I subscribed when I didn’t have a blog and frankly didn’t understand the difference between the two! So, you are in my reader. Ok, need to think of something…

  4. Let’s get this Potty started… had to say, couldn’t help myself.
    I don’t have a pot-per se…but I’m off to scavenge one.
    Hope to come up with something …anything.
    Congrats on your climbing success!

  5. Hi ~ I just painted some clay pots ~ lime green, turquoise and pale yellow for my deck ~ they are very cute:)

    (I don’t have a blog) ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Ohhh!! I forgot to address those that don’t have a blog and want to play the Pot Head Game. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Check out Photobucket. It’s a free online way to store your digital pictures. Download your pic, then capture the online address to it and use that to link up with.

    I love your parties and man, if we could only bring food….

    You rock the universe, btw.

  8. You’ve picked up almost 1,000 followers in only four months?!?!? Holy crap!! It’s taken us 1-1/2 years to get up to 200 followers… what are we doing wrong?!

    Sounds like your party is going to be a blast ๐Ÿ™‚ Count me in, please!!

    It’s not as big as your party, but we’re having a Mother’s Day giveaway over at DesignTies. Drop by if you have a minute and enter to win a beautiful Lisa Leonard necklace ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. 1977, Donna!!!

    John Denver – swoon!

    The Partridge Family – Keith – double swoon! “I think I love you, so what am I so afraid of….”

    Sonny and Cher – I never swooned for them. I liked them a lot. No swooning, though.

    I think I should be doing something else.

    See ya later…

    Are we gonna have to have the pots ready at 2000??? I’m confused about this part. I know it’s just me, though. Sorry. I’m feeling a bit nutty right now!!

  10. I’m putting Kolein in charge as my post manager. I’m too busy making posts to post one! I hope I don’t miss the deadline. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Pot party will be a surprise. But not for the 2000 turn over. I’ll give you a couple more days after that. So quitcher counting and go make pot! ๐Ÿ™‚


  11. Hi Everyone, Kolein here. Donna asked me to inform you that she will be out of town. She doesn’t want to miss the 2000 flip so I’ll be shooting emails at her all evening long and into the wee hours of the morning, if need be!!! 1978 and counting! Hanging on for 22 more! Then the party begins!

    Have a lovely evening!

  12. Hey Donna! (and Kolein) Just popping in to say ‘hi’! Congrats on the 2000! No surprise, your blog is wonderful! I’m going to try to make it to the parties! ๐Ÿ™‚
