Celebrate With Me! My One Year Blog-aversary!!

Welcome to my one year blog-aversary! I can't believe it's been a whole year since I first hit that 'make your own blog' button on Google! I remember how nervous I was and how I had absolutley no idea what I was doing!! I had wanted to make a blog for quite some time but kept putting it off because I didn't really know how to do it - but finally I had to just jump in and do it because I was applying for design team positions and it was required - and I'm SO glad that I did!

During this past year I have made 334 posts (boy, I need a life!) and had over 65,000 hits (thanks to ALL of YOU!!).

I have learned so much from you and made so many wonderful blogging friends that I wanted to share my celebration!

So what's a celebration without presents you ask??!! Well - how about these?!



Included here: Twitterpated Collection - Foxy Stamp and Birdie Stamp by Imaginisce along with 8 coordinating 6x6 pieces of designer paper. A package of Basic Grey Urban Prairie glazed brads, a 6x6 Urban Prairie paper pad (36 6x6 sheets), and two stamp sets from H&M Stamps - Sweetly Stamped (cake, pie and cupcakes - yum!) and Peaceful Decor - a stamp set of mix and match plants, pots, candles, apples and fun sentiments (retired).

All you need to do to have a chance to win this blog candy is to leave me a message on this post. Easy Peasy! I'll have random.org pick a winner on Wednesday night (2/11) after which I'll post the winner.

So - good luck! - thanks for joining in my one year blog-aversary celebration - and, as always, I greatly appreciate your stopping by!
