it's here! it's here! the bloggy giveaway carnival

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button
Argghh! I don't have my giveaway info yet. Well, I have it, but I need to take a picture to give you the full benefit of its cuteness. I'll give you a hint. It's adorable, it's turquoise, and it's daisy-related. I'm dying to get it posted and linked to the main site for the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival!

Okay, here it is...it's the cutest little purse watch you've ever seen!


And, the back side...

...looks just like a cute little daisy.

You could even wear it on a pair of jeans, like this.



A watch like this would help me not to be late...good thing I bought one for me and one for my lucky winner! I most hate being late to church because it's so obvious. What is your least favorite place to be late?

Okay, I just had a long discussion with Gee--she insists that this is LIGHT BLUE. I say it's turquoise. (She would probably tell me it wasn 't a long discussion, either.)

It's the color of a turquoise stone. Light blue is just a baby boy blue, like a sky blue. Nope, she's not buying it. Neither one of us is budging here.

What do you think? Light blue? Or turquoise? Leave me a comment. Either vote for a color, or tell me what you hate to be late to, and I'll enter you in the drawing! Drawing ends April 26.

I'm super excited! This bloggy carnival thing is crazy stuff! I'm only through 140 of them!!! AHHH!

Chantel said...

SO cute! :)

The most embarrassing 'late' situation I've been in is trying to get the bride ready (I was maid of honor) and ending up being a whole hour late to the ceremony!

Don and Lisa Osborn said...

I am going with turquoise, too!

Thanks for the chance.

Blessed Mama said...

I hate being late to a drs appointment, because they can sometimes be very rude about it. Like I need a rude receptionist when I'm dragging 5 kids in at break neck speed!

I'm going with Turquoise. I would love to win this as I lost my watch and am looking at my cell for the time!
Thanks for the giveaway.

Ginny said...

The watch is most definitely turquoise! I said it so it's final because I'm the official say so *nods and looks official*

Lesha said...

Very cute! :)

Jenny B. said...

You're right, it's turquoise!

Sweetpeas said...

From the picture, I'd call it aqua (but computers can do weird things to colors) whatever color it is, it's adorable! I'd love to win this!

michelle said...

I agree with you. From the photo, it definitely looks turquoise to me. I just love this watch and my favourite thing about it, is that I don't have to wear it on my arm. Watches drive me crazy, but what makes me even craziers is not knowing what time it is. I am one of those people who would rather be early for something than a minute late. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

Kim said...

Definitely turquoise! I hate being late so I always make sure I leave early - I tend to show up places at least 15 minutes before I need to be there.

Jennessa said...

Hmm.. I think it's a mix between both colors, but leaning towards the turquoise, for sure. (^'^)

I hate to be late to class-especially when I am the one teaching! eeeeh!(^^,)

Shelly said...

Definitely turquoise in my opinion!

I can't stand to be late to church either and yet with 4 kiddos we are almost every week! Holly

Turquoise... definitely turquoise! Very cute watch!!!

JANA said...

cute watch...I can't stand ones on my wrist. I think it's turquoise.

Becca Mae said...

I would say it is turquoise and that is coming from a Native American. Also my least favorite place to be late is the pediatricians office. They can be mean and hateful if even 1 minute late. Hope I win!

pinkgingham said...

I think it is turquoise too! It has a tiny bit of green in it! This is so cute... thanks for the great giveaway!

Merry said...

What a cute watch! It looks turquoise to me.

Kim said...

How cute is this?! I'd never even heard of a purse watch. LOVE IT! Can I have it? Please?! :-)

Cactusflower said...

I think it's turquoise and I hate to be late to church too, or really anywhere. I hate feeling like I kept anyone waiting -- and I am training my kiddos that if we aren't 10 minutes early somewhere we are already late. ;)

Nicol said...

I like light blue! It looks like such a fun watch!

sweetsue said...

I vote for light blue. What an adorable watch!

DustyVinci said...

I think it's light blue, heh
But I love it so much! That's the cutest thing ever! Please sign me up :D

Betsy said...

I like turquoise. My dd would love this!

seven said...

I would say it's more turquoise, but it's not a really saturated turquoise, if that makes sense. I would have probably just called it blue. But I have issues...

amyswandering said...

Turquoise gets my vote. That is so incredibly cute!

jo1brat said...

Think it is more light blue - I really want to win

M.A. said...

Um, definitely turquoise ;)

That is adorable on the bag!

BrineS said...

Lovely watch! Sky blue, light blue, turquoise... is there really a difference? :P I say it's cute!

Jenna said...

I'm bad with colors... I hate being late for school (either meetings or class). Even though I'm now the teacher, if I'm not in the class room at least ten minutes before class starts I feel late.

Nadine said...

I'm always late! So this has to help. I agree with you that its turquoise!

flip said...

It is turquoise. I can't stand light blue but I love turguoise.

Phyllis

M.E. said...

I hate being late dropping off my son to preschool. So bad, only happened once!
Enter me, please!

nor_lou said...

turquoise, but it is close. I hate being late to pick my daughter up at preschool (I have only done it once). She always wants me to be the first mommy through door so even when I am on time she feels I am late :)

Tammy said...

Turquoise, yep turquoise one vote for you! Anyway, my least favorite place to be late for is appointments, I hat that. Thanks for the chance, it is very cute, I have an ugly digital watch clipped to my purse right now and I hate it.

Marcia said...

I think it's light turquoise :-D

It is beautiful none the less.

I hate to be late for Church. I feel the eyes staring at me as I approach my pew as if they're secretly wondering what could've possibly been more important.

Carolynn from Western Australia said...

Definitely Turquoise no two ways about it.

I hate being late for anything really.

This little watch would be just so ideal as being allergice to all metals other than pure gold or pure titanium means it has been many years since I've worn a watch at all so generally have to rely on a clock being visible somewhere or asking strangers what the time is.

Carolynn :-)

Becoming Me said...

Darling. Turquoise

Amanda Moore said...

I agree with you, it's turqouise. I hate to be late to any event because when you come strollin in everyone is staring at you because you were late. How embarrising.

Sweetpea said...

I think it's turquoise but that's just me. I hate picking my son up late from school and making him be the last one left in his class waiting on mommy. sweetpea023 at gmail dot com

samsakara said...

I hate it when I'm late to family gatherings. I say the watch is turquoise! I love the watch for the fact that you can put it on your purse or even your jeans!

Carrie said...

It's turquoise!! That would be great hanging on my key chain! Oooohh! I like it! I hate being late anywhere, it's a pet peeve of mine...most of all late for dinner, hehe!!

Anonymous said...

I'd say turquoise! Whatever color it is cute!Church is the place I really don't like being late for. Everyone turns around to look! monk5@charter.net

Audra Marie said...

Turquoise! :) What a cute watch. :) This would be great since I can't wear watches without breaking out in a rash on my wrists. :(

~Tami said...

It's turquoise, and it would match my new purse!

dolphin lady said...

How cute! I don't wear a watch, so this would be a great help!

Kathy said...

Well, I hate to be late to church, but I don't want to be a copycat, so I'll say a doctor appointment. Cute watch!

Shawnee said...

I like your LIGHT BLUE watch. One of my 2008 pledges was, "As a gift to all, I will no more be late." That's not quite working out yet, but maybe your prize will help me!

WorldsGreatestMommy said...

I say light blue, but that's just me. I hate being late to church. Dragging in five children and one husband, when the only open pew is on the very front. So everyone watches as you disrupt the whole meeting. Luckily people at church love my family. I think.

How cute is that?! Definitely turquoise. And I hate to be late to everything but am always late to everything. Thanks for the giveaway! (you are so skinny in your pic, btw...after seven kids? *jealous*)

daisy said...

Thank you...but I have to clarify. That is one of my lovely girls. I WISH I was that skinny again.

Smellyann said...

Hi, Daisy! I'm voting turquoise, too. :D Cute giveaway - didja enter mine yet?

Suzie G. said...

I say turquoise too. I hate being late to doctors appointments. On the appointment card they give me at the pediatricians office, it says "If you are more than 15 minutes late we may ask you to reschedule." Yeah... why the heck does it matter if I'm 15 minutes late. Everytime I go they don't call us back there for at least an hour past the appointment time anyway!

Bai said...

i hate being late in corporate meetings! shucks! every eyes would just look at you almost wanting to shout at you and scold "where have you been, we're done!"

Genevieve P said...

I'd vote for aqua. And I agree, I hate being late for church!

Huguette said...

I'd say light blue :)

maggie said...

I'd have to say it looks turquoise. And you are so right. It is really cute!
Thanks for the chance to win. =0)

flchen1 said...

That's adorable! I have to vote for turquoise--there's a bit too much green for it to be just light blue. And I hate being late to anything (residual trauma from being late to preschool graduation, I kid you not), but some of that I can't control with a watch... (hope DH isn't reading... ;))

Thanks for the contest!

Mandy said...

Least favorite place to be late? My PA (Procrastinators Anon) Group Meeting.....ok, just kidding.:) It's also church for me. I hate hauling my three kids and bags in front of everyone.

I'm casting my vote for turquoise. Yep. Definitely turquoise!

I think we can all agree, though, that it's cute!

Thanks for stopping by my site and leaving a comment so I could find my way over here to yours.

I just have to say I was excited to see you're an INFP. They're so rare. Two of my best friends in life are INFPs, so I like you already. (I'm just one letter different--a J!)

Thanks for the giveaway! -Julia :-)

I think it's light blue, and I hate to be late, but my husband always has to be the last one out. UGH!

Thanks

Paisley said...

That is the most adorable watch! I love it! My boys are color blind and they would argue that it's green so no help here on that!

I hate to be late to movies because I don't want to miss the previews!

Thanks for the giveaway!

aly3kids said...

So cute!! I HATE to be late to drop off or pick up my daughter (and late means on time but rushed in my mind - I like to be there at least 5 minutes early so we don't have to run across the parking lot!) Thanks for entering me! tonaly at gmail dot com

chanelireli said...

I hate being late for church; one time I told my dh to turn around and go home because I was NOT walking in to church late.

Sarah said...

I hate being late to school, especially when I am on my way to the Y with no make-up on! I'm so vain. Heaven forbid that I have to walk my kids in late in my scrungy workout clothes. I like the turquoise watch.

Love your site by the way. This giveaways are fun to see what other people are up to.

Anonymous said...

I hate being late for work, we have a morning meeting first and everyone is looking at you. I would say it is turquoise.

Nancy Sabina said...

I must admit that when I read "turquoise watch" I thought of the stone, turquoise. So maybe light blue would be a better description. But, the good news is that I am pleasently surprised by how cute the watch is even though it's not *made of* turquoise. It would look great on my diaper bag! And I hate being late to church or any meeting where it's obvious that I've just arrived behind schedule, out of breath, and exasperated (and often covered in baby blap).

Tabitha said...

I hate to be late to any kind of meeting, and I think the watch is turquoise (my favorite!) Thanks for the opportunity!

Jennifer said...

Well, in the pictures it looks turquoise to me, but I could give you a better answer when it's in my hot little hands LOL! And I hate being late to anything, but especially to the movies ... I don't want to miss a thing!

Anonymous said...

I think I would call it turquoise too, but then again I am partial to turquoise.
This is a great contest hope I win as I plan on using it for a Mother's Day gift to one of the nursing home residents I read too.

Keryn said...

You nailed it with the being late for church. I hate that the VERY MOSTEST, to the point that we arrive twenty minutes early, just so I don't get stressed out. It's my mother's fault--we were "late" if we got to the church less than 25 minutes before it started. My email addy is in my blogger profile, in case I win!

Toystory said...

Darn close to turquoise.... on my monitor.

It's turquoise.

I love to be late. The problem is nobody else I know likes it. See, today is the 26th. I'm here on the LAST day.
