MY 100th POST GIVEAWAY!!!


WOW!!!
I can't believe I've reached my 100th post. When I started this little blog of mine back in September, it had been after a good year of contemplating starting one. Wanting to be part of this amazing blogworld, but wondering what I really would have to offer. Then I realized that, for me, blogging is about sharing your self, your family, your home, your sometimes humdrum daily goings-on.

I've met some
terrific,
creative,
talented,
thoughtful
people through blogging these past six months. It's comforting to know that in this big, huge world, there really are people just like me out there. So many kindred spirits.




In celebration and thanks to those of you who read and enjoy my humble little ramblings, I've created a little something for one lucky reader.
I hope you all know how I wish I could give each one of you a little gift of thanks.




I thought creating a pretty journal would be nice. In this electronic world, the written word seems to be becoming almost obsolete. These journals would be ideal for the blogger and non-blogger alike. Perfect for jotting down your
thoughts,
ideas,
inspirations.
A big one for home and a teeny one for your purse, car, work.

Also, I had to share a sampling of the beautiful Amy Butler papers I used. You'll be receiving a stack of 24 total - 12 different prints - of 5x7 sized, double sided paper. Some seam binding will be riding along in the package as well. Five, 2-yard pieces of a variety of colors that coordinate nicely with some of the papers.




To enter a chance at this lovingly created gift just for you, the steps are simple.
  1. Leave a comment on this post.
  2. Become a follower and leave a separate comment. If you are already a follower - THANK YOU!!! - but also leave a separate comment.
  3. Put a little blurb on your blog in a post or on your sidebar, and again, leave a comment. This action will count as 2 (TWO) chances!
You see, that's 4 total chances of winning! Please don't forget to leave the separate comments so I can add your name the appropriate number of times.

Deadline for this drawing will be midnight (EST) Wednesday, March 24. Good Luck!

edited:I'm going to extend the deadline to 8 a.m. EST March 25. I really don't think I'll be able to stay awake until midnight to draw the winner! LOL!!!

Thanks again to all of you. Whether you're just a reader, or you comment frequently or just once in a while. Those who are listed followers and those who are not. I'm very thankful for you all.


Thanks for visiting!
Leave a comment so I can get to know you.
