1st blogthday giveaway


My Mother's Day cake

Greetings!

In a little less than 2 weeks, my blog will turn 1! It seems like just yesterday that the boys started school and I decided to create a blog. Who knew all of the positive elements, new ventures, and wonderful surprises having a blog would bring?

To celebrate, I am having a Blogthday Giveaway!

Included in my giveaway will be this glittered canvas {like the ones I sell at my Etsy shop}:



and a bag of surprise crafty treats and tinkered treasures!



To enter, please leave a comment on this post.

For a 2nd entry, simply add this little button to your blog along with the link to this post:

The winning entry will be selected (using random.org) on August 28th, the date of my first post.

Well - congratulations sweet Elyse! A year! Isn't it such fun to blog and meet other bloggers? You know you are one of my favorites. (Your little package should be on its way to you somewhere around the first part of the week - if I can ever finish mowing the endless lawn!)

Well Happy Blogthday! I can't wait for mine!!!
Blogging has become part of my life. And I laugh when I read other people's posts that assure me it's that way for them too! I remember when I found your blog several months back, I was THRILLED because I loved everything I saw! And I posted your button! Which is rare - I only have 3. (Does that count for the 2nd giveaway entry? or I can post the other one too, let me know!)
Well, hope you have something special planned for the 28th! Very, very fun!
Happy day! Karen - Some Days Are Diamonds :)
