While I was at the CBC this weekend, I got this text from my daughter.
This was our conversation:
Me: "Thank you...I must love you tons more!"
Candice: "HaHa! Nothing compares to my momma's love;)"
Me: "So is what u r saying is there is nothing that compares to my butt?????"
Candice: "Haha!!! Didn't mean it like that. But is is real funny. :)"
Me: "I'm all about humor."
Candice: You are pretty great like that. It's why your chillins love you;) <3"
I loved it! I just had to share it!
OK on to some CBC excitement!
Throughout the week I'll be posting pictures about some of the fun but I wanted to tell about the giveaways I'm going to have.
I won three very awesome prizes and the CBC people gave us a fabulous Swag Bag containing a ton of goodies. It was like Christmas!
On Friday night we were supposed to text one of the vendors for a chance to win a free blog redesign makeover.
The value was over $600.00!
When the desing team came up to call out the phone number for the winner it was mine!!!
Being a (208) prefix in a room full of (801) prefixes that WANTED this prize was a little scary
(A lady sitting next to me offered me $300.00 right then and there!)
I don't know why I didn't just do that (maybe it was because I really have too much money and didn't want to burden myself) but I thought it would be ungrateful to regift something so wonderful.
So I came home and checked out the site. They are a company called Moselle Design. I was so blown away with how beautiful their pages are and all of the stuff they could do for my website.
Apparently it's a really huge deal to have awesome webdesigns for business people and stuff.
Anyway, this is going to be one of my giveaways that I'll do.
The biggest reason I'm giving this away is that I'm just little old me.
I don't have a business, I'm just plain old Tauna and I enjoy kinda doing my own thing.
My blog isn't fancy but I have a blast playing with it.
And besides..........I didn't think my blog should get a facelift before I do!
"Thank you people from Moselle! I hope someone that really needs this can enjoy it! You were so generous!"
You can't believe the famous people that were there. It was so fun to be able to meet people that I've enjoyed reading or listening to their music.
About a year ago I bought a CD of this beautiful womans beautiful music. Sherrie Shepherd is a pianist and composer.
I love having her CD playing in the house. It's soothing and peaceful.
She also did the music for Braden Bell's upcoming book The Roadshow. SHE'S SO TOTALLY FAMOUS!
I shook her hand at CBC!
(I even took a picture with us together (she is so dang nice!) BUT apparently there is a save button on the camera phone that you supposed to do or something like that. Uhm, I have difficulty with such technology. SO I don't have the picture. I could kick myself!)
In each of the Swag Bags that we received there was a CD of her latest recording Solitude. Everyone there was so lucky!!!! Well, I already have this CD because I bought it a while ago and MY copy is even autographed!
So I am giving away the CD I got in the Swag Bag.
I promise that you will love it!
"Thank you Sherrie! You are so gorgeous!"
Another of the AWESOME things I got hooked on...digital scrapbooking! Oh. My. Heck!
There isn't anything that can't be done with digital scrapbooking well, except maybe the laundry.
The first day we were there I watched this vendor demonstrate some darling things she was doing with it.
I walked away.
Then I came back.
Then I walked away.
Then I bought.
I decided I wouldn't need to get Photoshop if I had this.
The next day I went to one of the full classes they were teaching.
At the end of the day they gave away the "lite" version.
I had purchased the full version.
So I am giving away the MemoryMixer lite version of this software.
OK, the last thing that I'll give away is some chocolates that I dipped.
Ya, I'm not famous or anything, but I dipped a bunch to take to CBC to give to some of the people I've stalked since I started blogging. I had some left over. (If you want to see one of the blog friends that actually blogged about my chocolates you can go visit Crash Test Dummy! Debby is one of the most hilarious people out there and I LOVED being able to meet her. So genuine!
I have pictures of her, but I really am supposed to be out pulling weeds so I'll post them later. But just trust me.....she is so CUTE! I just want to pinch her!)
They were giving away I iPAD at the CBC!
They had some seriously generous vendors there. Everyone was wanting that one.
NO I did NOT win the iPad but I did win a Sony Bloggie!
It was from the vendor Blog Frog. I hadn't heard of them before, but the guy that spoke to us was hilarious! Apparently if you are a blogger you want to sign up for BlogFrog. I'm still learning about it but it sounds great.
Their grand prize was this little number:
I've never had a video recorder before!!!!
It's so cute!
I am very excited.
So that's why I was asking in my last post if you wanted me to buy your lottery ticket.
I had a great time.
It was nice to get away.
It was a blast to meet friends.
I WILL go again next year!
The giveaways will start tomorrow or Wednesday. Right now I have to get back to real life and help with the weeding!
Ya'll need to start planning to attend this next year!
