Twenty years ago today, I married the greatest friend I’ve ever had. Ern and I met in med school and were close friends for 8 years before we became romantically involved. I guess we both were too focused on getting though medical school and residency to allow ourselves to give in to the romance, but once we were done with training…look out! I can honestly say that I love/like this guy more everyday. He has a kindness about him and a sense of humor that still has me laughing all these years later. He brings out the best parts of me and I know that I am one very lucky woman!
Because I am feeling so appreciative of my good fortune in meeting and marrying Ernie, I want someone else out there to have some good fortune. In honor of our 20th anniversary, we are having a give-away of a $50 gift certificate to our online store. All you need to do to enter is to leave a comment to this blog posting by 11:59 pm eastern time on Thursday, Feb 17th, 2011. Good luck!
Oh, and two more things… since Nikki took over our weekly sales newsletter, I have been terrible about placing any sale info in this blog. We have a sale that begins every Friday at noon in our online store. She is planning a very special sale in honor of our 20th anniversary and Valentine’s Day, so check your newsletter email tomorrow (Fri) to hear about it. To sign up for the sale newsletter and to receive information about new products by Patsy Thompson Designs, go here. (We don’t share up mailing list with anyone else.) Happy Valentine’s Day!
And one last thing…I’ve been getting lots of email questions about these birds and feathers and many of the other things that you’ve been seeing on this blog. Just know that in the months to come, you will also be able to create these appliques as effortlessly as I have been doing. This is just another wonderful offshoot of Ernie and me teaming up together. Stay tuned and sign up for that mailing list if you want to be amongst the first to learn of this kind of thing! (I’d tell you more, but then I’d have to kill you!)
