Please leave a comment here in order to be considered. There will be one winner announced on the day of my Blogiversary, August 15th. You have until the end of the day before - two weeks from today - to leave your mark. You need not be a follower or advertise this to be considered, however if you do decide to post about it or place one of the above pictures on your sidebar (which of course I would love), please let me know in a separate comment so that the random number generator may count you twice. International friends are welcome and I will take care of all shipping costs.

Please do pop over on the 15th as I will be offering some fun party favors for all who attend . . . 

Update: please leave your contact information if you do not have a direct blog link so that I may contact you when you win . . . if you have already left a comment and wish to add anything, please feel free to email me. Thank you!

I wish you the best of luck,
Kristin xo

Oh Kristin congratulations on your blogiversary. The time sdoes go by quickly doesn't it. Thank You for you comment on my Monday's Child story. It started as a poem and then sort of took on a life of it's own.
Your giveaway is so generous I would love to be included. Thanks,
Tess

Michelle said...

Oh my goodness... what an awesome giveaway! I am totally against giveaways (it has been my experience that it brings out tons of super greedy people that wouldn't otherwise enjoy your blog) so count me out. However, if you'd ever like to do a trade, count me in (I'm totally dying to get my hands on some of your beautiful work)! And, you are super generous, that's a lot of awesome!

(I'd also be happy to put some linkage on my blog if you'd like :) !)

Hi Kristin,
Holy Cow it's a treasure trove of amazing stuff. Congrats on your Blogiversary... I'm your newest follower.

Zanil Hyder said...

Hi
I happened to visit your blog as i found you to be someone whose comments are popular on blogs.I consider that a generosity unlike the people who are lost in their awesomeness.

You blog is good and your Giveaway is a Treasure chest although it would take time for me to figure out the usage of each of those things yet there is a desire in me to win it.

I do appreciate your method of promoting, but unlike what michelle said in her comment. We need audience first then we need our content to engage the viewers.At the moment you have both as i read all the comments on your blog.

So do consider me as well with my very late appeal for your Giveaway.

Please let me know next time when you are doing a giveaway as i would promote your blog because blogosphere should know about it.

Have a Nice Day.

Kersten said...

Happy Blogiversary! :) You sold me on entering with the picture of the pretty blue button. I'm a sucker for all things shiny, I guess. Thanks for holding a drawing! :)

Peace,
Kersten
