Ginormous Give-Away!!

*** Give-Away Is Now Closed ***

So I've hit the 100 followers of my blog mark. Now I know compared to some blogs out there that have thousands of followers this isn't much of a landmark. But to me it's HUGE. When I first started blogging, I really wasn't sure anyone would ever read it. I was so excited when Google Analytics actual said I had 10 hits in the first few days!! And when I had my first comment, excitement doesn't even begin to describe it!

To celebrate, I'm having a give-away. But not just a give-away - a really big give-away!! Because, honestly, give-aways are only fun if you have a reasonable chance to win stuff. So the more prizes the more winners.

To enter, please leave a comment on this post. Make sure I have access to your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win. I'd love it if you'd follow my blog (you can either follow via Google Connect or via e-mail - links for both on the side bar), but it's not a requirement to win. Entries will be accepted through 12:00 midnight MST on February 21, 2011.
And now the prizes:

#1


handmade necklace - made from upcycled vintage silver chains and a vintage flower brooch


#2

handmade crocheted and beaded bracelet


#3












































And finally, 4 lucky readers will each win a scrappy stay-put bookmark - made from vintage fabrics and buttons

Good luck to all and thanks for reading!!

  5. I loe what you did with your hot pink tee. Using the bleach pen was such a creative touch. I went over to see what the other girls did with their tees. Such fun to see them all!! What a great group of gals for you to be having fun with. You'll be amazed at how close you become to some of them over the years.

    Kristin said she stopped to see you a few days ago. I'm so excited for her and her new job.

    I'm getting itchy to come out to Denver again soon... now that I know how to get around the Denver Airport. We'll have to meet for lunch or something. I should go to Wendy's where it's warm but Denver is such an easy non-stop flight.
