This week we are counting down to the date of 8-8-08...just look at all those EIGHTS! Aren't they pretty? I wish I was having a big EIGHTCRAZY party..but instead I will actually be running a wedding rehearsal that no party at my house. The rest of ya'll will most likely be watching the opening ceremonies of the 2008 olympics! So just pretend it's an EIGHTCRAZY party!

So in honor of counting down to all those lovely EIGHTS I will be including the number EIGHT in some way with each post this week....and then on Friday there will be a giveaway!!

I'd like to invite ya'll to join me on my countdown! Just post about what I'm posting about each day!!!

Today I'm going to look back into my comment archive and share some EIGHTS from my blog history!!!
My EIGHTH comment that I received back when I first started blogging was from Beckie at Infarrantly Creative and she said:

Oh my that studio (another creative blog) gives me creative envy. THAT IS AMAZING! I want one.

Here comment was in regards to a post all about Craft Studio Evny!

Then there is my EIGHTH post...which is super boring...but here it is:


Today on CNN at 7pm ET and 4pm PT they are airing the YouTube presidential debates. People from all over the country submitted video questions, and they will show the videos and then the candidates will answer the questions. I'm not much for watching debates, but this one sounds interesting!

So, now it's your turn....go to your blog and post the EIGHTH comment you ever received and your EIGHTH post! It's fun to look back! Leave me a comment to let me know you are participating in my countdown!!

Tomorrow I will be sharing about EIGHT people who have impacted my life!! (so start thinking about your post!)


  1. Welcome back! Has it been a week already?

    What a lot of eights! I remember when I was eleven, on 08-08-1988 I watched the clock turn over 8:08am, then I counted the seconds ... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, EIGHT! And nothing happened. It didn't seem any more special than any other second I'd lived through. But I sucked in the beauty of those eights.

    My eighth blog post was momentous - the ghastly NAKED incident at CHURCH CAMP! Eek. Thanks for reminding me!

  2. Can't wait for tomorrow's topic. Sounds like a good one!

  3. Do we win anything for participating?

  4. I am looking forward to 8-8-08 because it is my birthday and I will be 44 (4+4=8). Pretty cool. I wonder how many other people share the same birthday. My birthday is also a square root because it is 8-8-64 :)

  5. Lisa's comment is so groovy! She must have been pretty surprised to read your post today!

  6. I would participate...I really would, but I blogged for TWO YEARS without a comment. Not a one. I didn't know your had to leave comments to get people to comment on your blog.

    It took me a long time, but I eventually figured it out.

  7. posted today with my eights...

  8. Wow--what a cool participatory posting thing you've got going on here! Do you mind if I do it tomorrow morning? BTW, Uncle Lynn has authorized another Great Pop'rs Giveaway--it starts tomorrow, so stay tuned!

  9. THis perfect 8 post had 8 perfect comments, and I've gone and ruined it! Delete it if you want :)--but I just wanted to say that I'll be doing this on Friday!

  10. just a side note, my kids former babysitter is getting married on FRIDAY!! she loves 8's too!!
    how cool is that!
    have a G-REIGHT WEEK!!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a note!
