Want awesome free stuff? And a new favorite blog or two?

1000 Follower Celebration

Flamingo Toes is one of my all time favorite blogs. Hands down. She has an amazing Etsy shop which is full of awesome rings, necklaces, bracelets and even a pattern for a great purse. But we don’t always have a ton of extra money for shopping online for pretty things just because we love them…so wouldn’t it be better to win some stuff instead? Of COURSE!

Which brings me to my new favorite blog – A Glimpse Inside. That’s where I got that nifty button up there at the top of this post. Isn’t it great? So if you head over there right now you have a chance at winning $25 worth of shop credit in one of the coolest Etsy shops ever.

So…seriously…GO! As much as I love you, my reader (lol, yes, my one lone reader) you really shouldn’t be here anymore…go enter that contest! 😀


Embroidery stitches? And a giveaway!

I want to make a header for my site here and rather than mess with Photoshop, I really want to embroider something. The thing is, I’ve never embroidered anything at all. Youtube is a wonderful help and I have a plan of what I need to do, but I was wondering if anyone has any tips and tricks they’d be willing to share. You can comment here or just email me privately, I really love hearing from any of you any which way you want to use 🙂

Whoever gives the best advice will win a surprise package in the mail! So come on, fill me in…I’m waiting!

***Update: I finished the embroidery but I don’t love it so I’m starting over. You’ll just have to be cool with the no header thing for a bit longer. 🙂

My first giveaway!!

In honor of the new work out room, I have a question for you guys:

What music do you love to work out to?

Let me know and if you have the best answer there’ll be a present waiting to be sent your way. Just comment here and inspire me!

***Okay, to all of you lurkers out there who have read this but haven’t left a comment, I’ll entice you by throwing out some info about the gift you can win (at this point, one answer would be the best answer, so don’t hesitate). I need to clear out a lot of my paper scraps, so you’ll be getting some wonderful blank bookmarks to decorate, some paper embellishments (not sure exactly what yet, but for sure some stickers and tags), a few stamps, and probably bunches of fabric scraps as well. Other than that I’m not really sure yet what I’ll throw in the package, but it will be an assortment of crafty goodness, I promise. Plus you’ll get the added benefit of knowing your favorite songs are blasting my ears through my mp3 player as I die on my treadmill…hehehehe.

One more addition…the giveaway will end next Sunday, the 2nd of November, so you have another week to add your comment!
