Give Away!

OK, I'm getting into this bloggy thing and I want to be part of the blog world by having a give-away. Everybody's doing it and I hate being left out!

So here are my rules....very simple. Comment on this post before midnight on Thursday the oldest grandson's birthday! If your comments are clever I may add your name to the drawing more than once! Winners will be announced on Friday the 20th. I wont't do anything fancy like use names will simply be put into a hat and a name drawn by one of my insane co-workers as I will be working that day.

Two prizes are being offered.

Prize #1...(drumroll here): If you are the winner you have a choice of either the red and black watch or the brown watch. I made them myself.
Back of the watches...

Front of the watches...

You can click on the photos to make them bigger, but please don't look at the age spots.

2nd Place Winner will receive a small portion of my awesome drug rep pen collection. As you can see, one of those pens is a pretty hot commodity...uh, sorta coveted-type pen. (I know that everyone wishes they had my awesome drug rep pen collection, well I am willing to share)

As I mentioned earlier, you can click on the photo to..ahem..make them appear bigger...ahem.

OK so comment away, dazzle me with your clever wit!

Tauna, I think our walk jarred something loose in your noggin. But I will sign in for the give away.

Kirsten said...

I make watches too! Isn't it fun?! Yours are SOO cute! Way to go!

Jake, Mandi & Kempton said...

'WATCH' OUT! Here comes a winner! I've seen LaRae fashioning a Tauna-made watch before and loved it! I hope I get one of my own.

Kristina P. said...

Can I use the pens to stab certain coworkers at work?

And in order to link back to your old posts, it's exactly the same as if you're linking to someone else.

Click on the post you want, cut it, and paste it into the hyperlink box in the Compose box, and there you go.

You should also go to your profile and add your email address, so I can reply to your questions directly, rather than leave you a comment. Yay for easy stuff!

I can't think of any 'dazzlers' this morning, but will begging and pleading work! Pick me. . .Pick me

Kim said...

I am writing down the fact that I love drug rep pens so you better watch out I want to win it all! I know that won't happen, but I thought it was worth a try.

Some of my favorite pens are the drug rep pens, they seem to last forever and since I usually have a stock pile of pens one day and the next they are all gone this will help with that issue.

LOVE THE WATCHES!! Hope I win, I could use something that cute to wear to work, or not!!!!

Cherie said...

I just found your blog and I knew the minute I read "I put the fun in dysfunctional" that you were my kinda friend!
Lovin' your blog! Lovin' the give-away!

I think those watches are definately "Fun-tastic" and one of them would definately look wicked Awesome on me...I'm just sayin'!!

Have a GREAT day! :D

:Jan the crazy lady: said...

Loving this girl. You are working the blog thing well. Love the watch. I don't own one. I am always looking at other peoples. It annoys them. I am like hounding for anyone who has the time. I need this :)

That was a begging thing huh.

The American Homemaker said...

Oooo... I love pens! My ex husband was a paramedic and he always brought me cool pens from hospitals and drug reps and such :)

Nef Fam said...

Taun, do you often wear two watches???? You're so fashionista!

But BEWARE: a woman with a watch always knows what time it is. A woman with two watches is never sure! :)

The Karrens said...


What else can I say, except that I am a single mother of two ADORABLE boys and I am badly in need of a great pick me up. A free gift would be great. I love the pens(I always take Michaels). I know I am playing the pity card, but is it going to work?

funky bag freak said...

I need a pen for every purse!
"throw me some beads mister"


Figure that one out!

Kim said...

I am counting down the minutes till you pull a name out of a hat.

I can't wait!

Jeppesens said...

Okay I don't want to be left out of this fun game. I don't think I have anything creative to add. My brain and body is fried from moving!! But it is so nice to be unpacked and start to settle down.

Cool stuff. I noticed when I worked at Madison last week that all the nurses were wearing those watches. It's you that's making them? Must be a new trend I'm not aware of (can't keep up--whatever happened to "tole painting"?). I'm sad that drup reps can't give out pens anymore... I had a Viagra pen, but the word "Viagra" rubbed off--now it is just a plain blue pen. LOL.

oooh I really like the watches but if I won the pens I would be happy about that too I guess but I would rather have the watch!!!

Cadance said...

Oh sweet!!! I've always wanted my very own collection of drug rep pens....I've never been able to build up enough courage to walk out of the Dr.s office with one still in my hand....why is it that those drug rep pens write so smoothly? Do they put some sort of drug in those pens to give them a higher quality of ink than my little-ol-Bic's? Hmm.

hey, the brown watch is HOT too....I'd like that one...very creative you are!

gigi said...

I really could use a watch. Maybe it wiuld help me not to be late for a very important date! Or maybe not, I'd just look really cool.

I'm thinking that it is time for a giveaway too. You always meet so many fun new people when you give things away!

Hi! I'm Gigi, spoken with a French accent. One year olderm than the movie :(

Tammy said...

What a cute blog you have!!! I'll just sit here and "watch" and wait until I can o"pen" a new blog entry you have written...enjoy your giveaway...AND your day!!!

Sorry, that's as witty as I get at this horrible hour of the morning!!!

Lori said...

I have a watch fetish. I think I purchase more watches than shoes... My DH thinks I'm crazy, but I love them. But for some reason all of my watch batteries stop working at the same time..(get it time) When my batteries do stop working I will go and buy a new watch instead of replacing the batteries... When I do get around to replacing the batteries they are more expensive than the watches. I do have a few "fancy" watches, but the rest are just fun!!! I would love to win oh I have to win......

Now don't get me started on the pens. I love cute pens, but not as much as watches. I'm the one that will walk out of the dr.'s office with a new pen.... don't ask me why I just do...
I can't remember who sent me over here but i'm so glad she did...

gramee said...

oh i love pens.. and watches. but let me tell you about my favorite pen.
it is a viagra pen. i got it at a dr. visit with my dad .
i always keep it in my purse. i was using it one day to sign something and the girl behind the desk asked "does that work" i said yes. she says "it really does." "yep" i said. wow! she said.
here the whole time i was thinking she was asking about the pen
and she was wondering about the viagra. she became very red faced as i looked up and realized.. i said oh you mean the viagra??
she said well yes.
i just burst out laughing. i said "sweetheart.. thats a very personal question but my man doesn't need it". and walked away. i am sure she died of embarrassment.

JOY said...

My blog is black and red
my pen, its ink has bled
my wrist is timeless bare
no watch is clasped nowhere.

To see a beaded band
adorn my pale fair hand
and write my words in scribbles
in drug rep pen's ink dribbles.

Time watches, never late
my name, a hat, and fate.
Pens follow where we lead
words red and black they heed.

Tara said...

Very cute!!! I'm a little jealous of all your comments! I guess mine was cheesy... no pics of gifts & have them ask a question not just comment. I'll have to remember that next time! You are also very funny! Love you!!
