My Second Prize (Pun Intended) ...

The weekend in general was really great but to top it all off, I logged into my blog and saw a comment from Emila of Emila's Illustrated blog and I was smiling from ear to ear (yeah, I did look rather silly ... LOL). She left me a comment stating that I had won second prize in her create a new name for her blog competition. Woohoo ... This is also the second time I've ever won anything in blog land and Christmas is getting sweeter by the minute!

Ok, just in case any of you is wondering what in heavens name am I blabbering about. Well, Emila ran a contest a fews back to come up with a new name for her blog. She had some criteria that the new name for her blog must have the letter 'E' in it. I seriously couldn't think up of anything that would suit her illustrative blog with that letter so I just coined up my own which was totally out of her brief ... hehehe ... And I honestly never expected to win anything, let alone second prize :)


Thank you Emila for even considering in giving me a second place prize (I didn't know that there was a second place prize to begin with ... hehehe). And my prize is this personally hand drawn 'Peace' Note book from her. I'm going to keep my eye out for that post man again. This time I'll give the guy a break and not pounce on him ... LOL! And speaking about notebooks, I do have a notebook computer assignment to complete later on. It's been lying in my inbox for way too long ...
