Zombie Dolls and my Blogiversary GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

It is Monday. It is raining. I had a super busy weekend. I woke up with a headache. So, one might think that today would be a gloomy kind of day around here, but I simply will not have THAT. Nope. Not here. Not today. Just say'n. You see, three years ago, in August I had this crazy idea that I should start a blog. I jumped in and, well, here we are...many wonderful friends, several amusing posts, and a whole lot of projects later. I can't even really tell you how much I LOVE blogging and the community that I am a part of because of it. You guys are seriously awesome. THAT, my friends, is why I have decided to give away one of my dolls to one lucky Just Jingle reader. It just so happens that I recently surpassed 100,100 hits, too, so that's pretty exciting, and worth a zombie doll, too! YAY!

Zombie Sisters


I'd like you to meet Zelda, Zinnia, and Zeppa! They are sisters, of course, however, it seems they have been infected with a pesky little virus...you know...the one that turns you into a zombie and such.

Zelda


It all began with Zelda, here. You see, she was out having her hair done and made a quick stop at Starbucks to grab three caramel apple ciders to bring home to her sisters and out of NOWHERE this random bloody guy starts moving toward her. Being that she is a bit naive and quite polite, she nodded, smiled and said hello, wanting to not discriminate against the bloody and such. You know how it goes. Well, he didn't have much to say, but he seemed to want to give her a hug, so she let him. Ooopsies! (*bite*) Zelda is a zombie. Just say'n.

Zinnia


Well, Zelda went on her way, as the virus hadn't set in all the way quite yet and she really wanted to bring those ciders to Zinnia and Zeppa. When she walked in Zinnia thought Zelda looked a bit strange, but knowing she had just had her hair done she didn't want to say anything, so she embraced her warmly (*bite*) and eagerly accepted the cider her sister had just set down on the table. Hmmmmm.....Zinnia was a zombie. Just say'n.

Zeppa


Never one to miss out on any of the fun, Zeppa, after hearing her sisters chatting, came out, saw the caramel apple cider and gave her sister a HUGE hug because caramel apple cider is her favorite and...(*bite*). Yup. You guessed it. Zeppa is a zombie. Just say'n.

Zelda, Zinnia, and Zeppa - Zombie Sisters


*Sigh.* Zelda, Zinnia, and Zeppa. Three sweet girls, now....the Zombie Sisters. Just say'n. BUT, they simply refuse to be nothing but gross, so they like to stay stylish with their vintage floral print dresses and, of course, flowers in their hair...at least as long as their hair stays on their heads...However...you should be aware, next time someone brings you your favorite drink from Starbucks..a simple thank you will do. Just say'n.

And now for the fun part! One of you will win either Zinnia or Zeppa! You see, I simply HAD to break these three up, as their 'kindness' seemed to be spreading! Yikes! So, I sent Zelda off to my partner in the last doll swap I participated in and now I would like to send one of the other girls off to one of you to care for!

I'll be grinning over this post all day! LOVED your zombie sisters as it was! But, having read their story, I now SUPER love them! You are a creative, wonderful NON-zombie DOLL! However, do NOT enter me in the drawing. (NOT because I wouldn't LOVE one of the sisters - I WOULD - but because I already am lucky enough to OWN one of your fabulous fun dolls & DO NOT want to be greedy!)
