Time For A Celebration Giveaway...

 I began writing my blog in March of 2009, and today marks my 1000th post! If anyone would have suggested that I would find such pleasure in my daily online "diary", I might have chuckled. Now, one thousand posts later, I can't imagine not keeping this web log!

I think one of the greatest gifts of this venture has been the people I've met along the way. My online friends, who in some cases I've been blessed to meet in person. People with whom I share my thoughts on a joyful and creative life. People who I have come to know and care for through their own blogs, or through their comments with me here. I'm grateful for all of you - and those words just never seem to carry enough import for how I really feel.

To thank my friends who regularly follow my blog, 
I'm going to celebrate with a  
1000th Post Giveaway
Small tokens to convey my gratitude.

Now, I have to confess that my plans were to post images of the things I would be offering in the giveaway, but I've been sick in bed with a stinkin' cold all week. I finally was able to spend half of my day upright today. So, instead, I'll tease you by telling you that I'm going to offer TWO different gifts. (You know me. I don't think I could celebrate with just one!)

Gift Number One 
Set of Six Dinner Napkins
 Double-sided and made by me from 100% cotton fabric
I've made these, but I'll make a set in your favorite color if you prefer.


Gift Number Two
Assortment of Vintage Treasures
Luscious laces, buttons and ribbons to use in your own creations.

It's easy to be included in the giveaway:
  • Follow my blog (Let me know that you're a follower/friend and you'll get one entry)  
  • PLEASE NOTE: Join my NEW Linky Friends List, TOO - above the Google Friends List (leave another comment and you'll have another entry!)
  • Post my giveaway button on your sidebar and link back to this post (leave another comment and you'll have another entry)
I'll draw the winners on Valentine's Day - February 14th!
Good Luck!!!
UPDATE:  02/14/12 - 11:30 pm - DRAWING CLOSED.

she dreams big! said...

Congrats on this milestone Donna! I read each post and to be honest, you make me feel like such a slacker sometimes with all you accomplish! But then, you also make me 'step up my game' many times too! lol Thank you! Would love to know how you make your napkins because I have fabric to make some staring me in the face and I'm just not sure how I should proceed.

Every day I look forward to inspiration from you!

Debbie B said...

Congrats! That's a lot of blogging! I don't know if I'm a 'follower' or not, but I do check in with you almost every day! Those buttons and ribbon are calling my name!
