BLOG CANDY TO HELP YOU DO LIFE
{AT LAST THE WAIT IS OVER}

Thank you to all you 80+ Doing Lifers who took a chance and placed your guesses in the comments section of this post.

Since this blog candy was up for grabs in celebrating Doing Life's 13,000 hits, I thought I will mention that another 1,400+ hits have taken place since the 13,000 mark was reached. Just comes to show that most of us are Doing Lifers.
It was a difficult decision determining the winner of this delicious blog candy, but was done by adding the totals of 191 Flowers and 339 Brads together, which gives a total of 530 items.
And the winner who was the closest to 530 and can now start licking her lips is: STELLINA from Switzerland. Congratulations. Should you visit her blog, you will notice that she only scrutinizes the web for blogs that have got candy up for grabs and do a post on each of these blogs on her blog. It seems like she is a professional when snatching at blog candy.
STELLINA, please email me your postal address so that I can get this candy off to you soonest.
oooOOOooo
Well, seeing that it has become the good thing to do, DOING LIFE is offering some 'lekker' blog candy in celebration of its 13,000 hits coming up. A big thanks to all of you who have been visiting and commenting here at Doing Life since January 2006. Without you Doing Life would have been Undoing Life. In order for you to qualify getting your hands on this candy, you need to post a comment at the bottom of this post with your two guesses i.e. as to how many flowers and how many brads are in this picture.
Oh yes, it would also be great if you could post an entry on your blog telling visitors about the blog candy up for grabs with a link to Doing Life.
Your comment should look like this:
Flowers: {your guess}
Brads: {your guess}
My Name: {your name and surname}
This candy is up for grabs to South Africans and International visitors to Doing Life.
The person whose guesses are correct or the closest to the actual amounts will win all the flowers and brads in this picture plus some secret candy. So good luck.
Make sure to have your guess in a comment before or on 30 September 2008. The winner will be announced on 1 October 2008.

    Thanks so much for popping by the blog - nice to see old faces - YES our beloved belongings and the beloved Harley seem to be taking forever - the ship docks on the 29th and we should have everything mid October - that is the problem being in a relatively remote area? Creative juices could not be contained any longer . . . Love checking on the blog - sorry I did not get my answer in before Michelle SO now you actually HAVE to count them and audit it as not all packs have what they say!!!!

    Ich fall gleich in Ohnmacht. Iiiich habe gewonnen, ich glaub es nicht. Das ist unglaublich.

    Nein, ich suche nicht nur nach Blog-Candys um zu grabschen. Meine Karten sind nur nicht so schön, wie all die anderen Karten die auf den Blogs gezeigt werden. Ich werde aber sofort meine Karten der letzten Woche auf meinem Blog einstellen.

    Ganz lieben Dank für das super tolle Blog-Candy.

    Liebe Grüsse aus der kalten Schweiz.
