Please Play Again .... surprise!

Last week I said the Rroll Up the Rim was over because I bought Timmie's coffee and didn't get a Rroll Up cup.


Then I went to my regular Timmies on Monday morning and they still have Rroll Up cups!

So every day this week I Rrolled up my rim!

No more winners.

Still, I'm a winner where the enviromnent is concerned!
I don't double-cup ~ I use a cup cozy!
Available in my shop in a variety of colours!
Get yours now or ask for the colour of your choice!

Please Play Again .... or not. :(

Yes, Rrroll Up the Rim appears to be over.

...for another year.

So I sit at 6 or 7 winners, I've actually lost track. Out of over 50 coffees. And all of them were free coffees.

I guess that's about right since the cup says the chance of winning is 1 in 9.


It would have been nice to win something different.

And not a donut! LOL

Until next year, then. And remember, Earth Day is Apr.22nd - consider the environment and don't double cup!

Use a cup cozy!

Buy them here at ennadoolf.etsy.com - even order them in your team colours!

Only *ONE* More Week!

My goal is to raise $1,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society by taking part in the Great Ride 'n' Stride.

This is my 29th year and the 40th anniversary of the Ride in London.

So far, I have $520 in pledges - more than halfway there - but I could use your help!

Please click here to sponsor me and help me reach my goal.

Thanks so much!!

p.s. that photo was taken the very *first* year I took part in the Great Ride 'n' Stride - I will *not* tell you how many years ago that was!

But only 6 out of 47. :(

But 6 more than nothing! :)

Hopefully more winners appear before we run out of cups... which I'm thinking is in the near future...

And with Earth Day fast approaching, be kind to the Earth and don't double cup - use a Cup Cozy!

Wednesday Wonder - Bath Tub Truffles

Bath Tub Truffles ...
Last month, I won a giveaway from Mountain Farms Soap and received the most lovely smelling Bath Tub Truffles!
The past few weekends I have been very busy at my sewing machine and I don't think my posture is the best ... to to take a bath with these Bath Tub Truffles was DEE-VINE.

April 05, 2010

Please Play Again - just one more

Just one more winner this past week.

I don't know how much longer we'll be seeing the Rrroll Up the Rim cups.

My stats are: 5 winners out of 38 coffees since the start.
(not counting the 2 winners hubby gave me!)

Remember: don't double cup! Use a cup cozy!!
