BLOGGER.....Beware the hounds of hell....

























































*
*
*
And now that I have your attention.......Lookie here.... A "Pay it forward" That takes the pressure off. You get a whole year to do whatever you want...buy or hand make. I love having plenty of time to plan and no stress getting in a hurry!!!

The first three people who want to respond , will get something made or bought by me. My choice. For you.This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:


1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make or buy!

2- What I do will be just for you.


3- It'll be done this year.

4- You have no clue what it's going to be.


5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.



The catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 3 people who do the same on their blog. The first 3 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did ...win a FAB-U-LOUS gift by me! Who's in?

But don't think you can't leave me a comment....you're only committed if you make the post and get back to me!!!

Me! Me!

Heather said...

Oh SHOOT, the comments box took too long to load and I missed being in the top three.

DagNABit. Stoopid computer.

At the very least, could the boys please give Roadrunner's face a gnaw for me? Since it kept me out of the winner's circle?

Love those vicious hounds! :D

Quirkyloon said...

Wait..you're gonna give something to three and then you're gonna give something to three other bloggers of the third three from the second three and then from that three you're gonna give three to the third blogger?

Did I get that right?

Just askin'.

*smile*

(Looks like I'm too late anyhoo!)

dana wyzard said...

ok. I got my post up. I'm ready. I'm ready for anything. I'm so stoked. (to be perfectly honest, I have no idea what I just got myself into) EXPLAIN IT SLOWLY.

Send email and use small words.

Midwest Mommy said...

Kris said...

Nikki, this is such a cool idea. Too bad I'm not in the top three, I was going to give out a 2 carat diamond necklace, a cruise vacation and a $5000 gift card to spend on a new wardrobe. hmmm' next time better be faster on the draw.
Guess I'll just keep them all for myself.

I do like this idea. I love paying it forward.

Kris

Thanks for the comment on my boots and oh yes, people still drive crazy in Houston; crazier every day.

Hugs~ J

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

It's official. Ozzie needs to come live with me.

Phyllis said...

Well, I'm sure late seeing this but will post on my blog anyway.

There sure have been a lot of complaints about Blogger lately. Maybe Cumpet and Ozzie should threaten Blogger just a little....

Braja said...

You're insane and the dogs are hilarious. Love Crumpet's wicked mean face :)))

KC Mom said...

Thank you for calling on Oz and Crump to protect us bloggers! I'm sure it will start working right again...
guess being the 26th poster is too late?

A New England Life said...

I would like to adopt Ozzie and Crumpet ... just so you know ; )

John Deere Mom said...

Those GRRRR faces are tearing me up!

Quirkyloon said...

Ah Nikki, I was too late for this contest...but in the spirit of giving....I have something for ye at me blog!

Laura said...

I almost didn't post because I was sooooo scared of the boys - NOT! Sorry, but watchdogs and fierce bad boys they're not!

squawmama said...

OMG girlfriend... You are the nuttiest and I am saying that with great admiration... I wished I lived closer to you... I know we'd have a ton of fun... Loved this post and the Ozzie & Crumpet once again did a great job... You are lucky you catch them when they are talking... LOL LOL Thanks for making my day... Love Ya

HUGS,
Donna

GaleForceOne said...

It would be impossible to leave one of the 1st 3 comments on your blog Mother dearest :) YOu are way to popular for your own good ;D

Mrs. B. Silly said...

I can't wait to see how this all plays out. ROFLMAO about faces tasting like chicken!

Re: sheets...there are some things in this world you just have to splurge on and sheets are right up there on that list. Thanks for the Horchow tip. If you have any specific style, LMK.

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

It's just no damn fair that I wasn't one of the first 3!
OMG, you... ahem... Crumpet and Oz-man... had me cracking up once again. Those dogs of yours should start a stand-up circuit.

Justine :o )

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

First time here. I like your doggy photos. Great captions.

Your pictures in your sidebar and inviting. Beautiful home and family.

xinex said...

Oh darn! Too late for me but I enjoyed your post anyway...Christine

onlymehere said...

Rats, I'm too late to play. Maybe next time! If you werent' so dang popular I may have made it in the top three, LOL! Have fun and I have to say this post is going to keep me laughing all day! I love their mean faces too. Cindy

Smilingsal said...

Since I make nothing creative or handmade, I'm sure glad that I am not amongst the first three!

Frippery said...

Hey, I am just checking in cause somehow you disappeared from my list on the side of my blog! I always check in with new posts and thought WTH happened to Nikkicrumpet? The mystery of the blogger. (my hubby always calls it operator error but I just know it couldn't have been something I did wrong)I guess I better check on who else has disappeared. Crumpet and my girl Baby look very much alike, I just love seeing what your guys are up to. Too cute, Pam

wendy said...

Those dog faces are funny. Dang they are cute dogs. What I'd like to know is"where is a photo of you?" I have never seen anything of you my dear. And all your side bar things are so cool. Guess what I am saying is you have a cool blog---so don't sik your dogs on me to chew my face.

mbkatc230 said...

This was great - I love the idea of siccing these guys on blogger. Bad blogger, major screw ups lately. All I have to offer is an attack cat, and unfortunately she's really more of a nap cat! Maybe if I told her that face tastes like chicken lol. Fun post, Kathy

tardevil said...

Love the smiling (I mean GRRRR-ing faces of your pooches)! My laptop about went through the window several times this week, so I'm definitely feeling your pain.

Anonymous said...

Awesome idea Nikki...did you hear about the guy that paid the womans water bill....true story, he went to pay his bill and overheard a women asking for a little more time because she was short of cash...after she left he told the clerk he'd like to pay it for her...she has no idea of his identity he wanted to keep it that way..... WASN'T that a wonderful thing to do?? Love stories like that :)

This post makes me wish I had my own blog Nikki, looking forward to the outcome.

All the best,
Kathy :)

French Fancy said...

I'd be scared of them :)

(not really, I love dogs)

Ginger said...

There's our boys!!! I was missing them.
Cute idea on the pay it forward. I'm anxious to see how it all turns out.
I'm glad the boys scared blogger and it's sort of fixed. I don't like the new way they did the follower box though.
Ginger

Shannon said...

Your dogs are 'wicked' funny! I have been looking for a way to get in the game so count me in! Sounds like fun!

Michael said...

So I missed the first three spots, but what a great concept! I'm going to say count me in, but it might be a while before I can put some time into it.

I love the Crumpie/Oz story...once again, a complete crack up!

Tracey said...

Boy!! Crumpet and Ozzie would have me really shakin' if my name was blogger!! LOL
You are so sweet to do the Paying it Foward again :)

thedomesticfringe said...

Oh man, I'm still working on the "pay" part of one of these pay it forward games. Unfortunately I just can't think of anything to make. I'm in a creative slump. I didn't realize I had a year! I've been sweating this thing out.

-FringeGirl

Loving Annie said...

That is so cute - they are ferocious blogger-face chewers all right :)

I'm not going to enter because I'm unselfish (ha-ha) actually I'm just lazy and will let someone else win the awesome thing you make !

Becky said...

I'd love to kiss those two mean faced pups of yours. They are just tooo dang cute!

Bo said...

Hi Nikki...I think Crumpet and Ozzie must have scared Blogger straight...it seems to have quit acting up now! They are true heroes...do you think they could run for political office? ♥ Bo

Jenni Jiggety said...

Blogger SHOULD be scared...those are some ferocious looking beasts you have there!

Cynthia said...

Nikki,
I would love to jump in your brain for a day, or maybe not! LOL, you funny lady. Cindy

Marrdy said...

Wow, those are pretty scary doggies!!

Nancy said...

Oh, Shoot on it! I am waaaaay tooo late...anyway. If I would have been on time...I would want you to do a guest post for me. Make it a funny post using Hoss and Lucy...(my dogs) like you do your two rascals! I always enjoy these posts!!!! Maybe next time..I'll be on time. Nancy

imjacobsmom said...

Those sweet little faces have me shaking in my shoes - sorry I'm so late. This sounds like a fun plan. ~ Robyn

Jenners said...

I just love these posts. Blogger should be scared! : )

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I'm so confused...it must be the pause in my menopause. All I got was.... if I had ESP (that provided preexisting knowledge of your post) and a lightspeed typing ability. I could have been the third entry for something really cool or bizarre from you. I'd actually prefer to win an 8x10 glossy of those two pups with those bubble captions. Let me know when you make them available on Ebay or Etsy!!

Sweet Wishes,
Sara

Melissa said...

I freaking love the doggy posts. They are such pearls of witty wisdom.

I keep seeing this tag, but I don't make anything. Seriously. So I will just let the rest of you enjoy the game.

devri said...

ok you are the shadizzle blogger of the year.. oh my word!!! I love this post!!!

but I am very sad, so sad that I might just go lay my face in your dogs mouth.. you see, I am flippin #62.. crap, that is what I get for being busy.

Beth said...

I'm jealous that your dogs can make such great, mean faces. Mine only barks at shadows. Guests can only fear being licked to death.

Elizabeth said...

Why are we mad at blogger? What did I miss?

jeanne said...

Nikki, another great post with your furballs. I can't get enough of them. I think your plan sounds like fun but I will pass at this time. I can't wait to see what you make. Smile.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

Hugs...Jeanne

Nana said...

Those dogs are very smart. Have fun paying it forward. I personally can't be bothered with other people.
I'm joking of course. (not really)

Carlie said...

LOL! I SOOO adore you Nikki! Thanks for making me smile. I am getting another dog! A little Shih Tzu. So adorable. You'll have to give me advice as two what to expect with now TWO dogs running around the house eeek! I'm excited but anticipate choas the first few months. LOL. Hugs hugs!

::Jan:: said...

Is that why blogger is shaking this morning? I wasn't sure what the problem was. Now I know the 2 little blogger mongers.

Carolynn said...

Here I am, bringin' up the rear, as usual. That's my modus operandi. Do I get a consolation prize? Sounds like fun, but the pressure to perform is giving me hives. Good for you for taking it on...even if you do have a year to do it in. ;o)

Judi said...

Hi Nikki and puppies
Those puppies really took over your post today! They are wonderful and you take great pics to capture them!
have a great day too.
Judi

The Painted Garden said...

Well boys, you stole the show again. . . not only are you the best dressed, best costumed, physically fit . .oh . . and Crumpet can cook up a mean meal in his apron . . . but the meanest looking dogs in Blog Land. . that mean BLOGGER does not stand a chance with you guys.
Have a great week.
Erin and Bentley

Charli and me said...

I don't know how you get your guys to pose the way you do. They are so darn cute! Happy day to you and yours!

Tink said...

Okay, the whole doggie write-up was hysterical! I laughed and laughed. You have got a great sense of humor! Loved it.

Sue said...

Those poor animals....what did you do to get them to lay on their backs and show teeth?? we had our blogger lunch yesterday and I told the ladies how you put peanut butter on the stove window so it looks like they're looking into the oven...A bloggers secret trick and I spilled the beans...Well, they asked how you do that and I knew!!

Susie Q said...

There is nothing like a visit to Nikki to make ya smile, laugh and just plain feel good.

Thank you for that sweetie...thank you.

Love,
Sue

Loved to see your dogs, they are as cute as mine.
