Six Month Blogaversary Giveaway!!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today is my six month blogaversary! Wow, I can't believe how fast time flies! I still remember trying to decide if I should even create a blog. I thought, who would want to follow me? I am so glad I did...I have met so many amazing people and I am so thankful for each and every one of my followers! I appreciate you so very much, and you inspire me daily! I wanted to do something special to thank you!
This is just a small token of my affection (my budget was severely limited by the new computer that I got on Friday and have spent the last two days on the phone with tech support trying to figure out why the cursor randomly jumps around the page! frustrating! I haven't been able to craft in three days!!) But, I'm just 70 away from 700 followers, so if I hit 700, I'll dig into my savings and add even more candy! So spread the word :)

All you have to do to be eligible to win is:
  1. Be a follower, and
  2. Leave a comment on this post with a way to contact you
  3. For an additional entry, tell your friends! Post this on your blog or sidebar or Facebook and then come back and leave another comment with a link to the post
That's it! The giveaway will be open until midnight EST on October 12th. I will use to pick a winner on the 13th. Oohh, October 13th just sounds spooky, doesn't it? It's not even a Friday!

Besides my blogaversary, I want to celebrate two other exciting events! One, I just redesigned my blog! It's been a long, hard process and I'm still working on all the little tweaks like section headers and a new button, but I wanted to debut the look on my blogaversary. I finally figured out how to do the top pic with clickable links, which was so stinkin' time consuming, but I will be able to add a gallery and tutorials soon.

Also, I am so excited to announce that I am going to be published in Scrapbook News and Review, the world's largest online scrapbooking magazine!! This was the first time I've ever submitted to a magazine and they picked both the cards I submitted! The call was for sympathy cards, which I have a hard time doing, but I used the new K Andrew Designs Sympathetic Sayings Stamp Set, which has such amazing made making the card easy!

  3. Hiya Doris,
    Thank you so much for your continued support of my blog. I really do appreciate it. I can always count on you to stop on by during one of the blog hops that I participate it. I just love reading your comments they are always so nice.

    I saw that you too are moving, so you truly do understand my My plans are to begin to unpack my scrap supplies as soon as it is humanly possible!!!! As soon as all of the important things for the house are unpacked that's next. I'm so excited this is the first time that I will be getting my own craftroom!!! Yeah!!!! So happy about that... right now I use the kitchen table and sometimes it's a pain cause you have to clean everything up and then pull it all back out again....

    Wish you the best of luck with your move too!!! I never knew you had so many blogs.... since I just found that out I also signed up for this one and I'm going to get updates from my emails.... I love that feature.

    Take Care and I will be talking to you again soon,
