Surprise To Me...and to YOU! Surprise Giveaway!

Ummmmm...I just got an email with a bunch of html code and instructions to "JUST POST IT!"

And this is what I found. A group of some of the most wonderful people I've ever met snuck (is that a word? sneaked?) around behind my back and put together an awesome giveaway for you guys and I'm just verklempt! They did everything, including the Rafflecopter widget at the end, without me knowing a THING! This is the closest thing to a surprise party I've ever had and I just can't say enough how much I appreciate it. And them. And you.

So here it is...GOOD LUCK!


It's surprise giveaway time! Shawn and Angel from Above the Curve wanted the nail polish community to show Sheila how much we love her on her 3rd blog anniversary and so many people came together to throw one huge giveaway for Sheila's readers! 


"Wanted today for us all to say thank you to Sheila for running a blog and being someone I consider a friend.

Close to 3 years ago she swayed Angel into a few polish buys, to say the least. She was the first I said, wow look we are on Pointless Cafe! Since then she has become a friend to so many of us, it was only fitting that we reflect how far she has come as have many of us.

May she continue to grow, build friendships, make us laugh, and share her awesome life with us as she has for the last 3 years. May we see many more." 

-Shawn and Angel (Above the Curve)


Sheila loves to interact with her readers so we thought it would be fun for everyone to share a memory of her that you have on her Facebook page! Your favorite post, what you love about her blog, anything that tickles your fancy! I have several posts of hers that I love but I think my favorite is Thank Goodness for Quilted Toilet Paper (if you haven't read that one I highly suggest you do!). It's such a true and meaningful post. In fact, as much as I love her polish posts, my favorite posts of hers are non-polish posts.  (~Ashley, Ashley is PolishAddicted)
