My 500th Post and Giveaway!

Yesterday was a HUGE milestone for my blog and I !

I posted my 500th post!  I still can’t believe it!

Who would have thought when I started this endeavor back

in June of 2008, I would still be here and still going strong!

If it wasn’t for all of you…. my trusty friends and followers

this would not be occurring!  I really appreciate each and everyone of you!!!

Your comments and your encouragement along the way

have given me a sense of purpose and happiness

( especially when my son left for college)

and I am truly grateful!

Here’s to 500 more!!!  

So In honor of my milestone, I thought it would be fun

to do a giveaway or Blog Candy as everyone calls it!

To keep it interesting I am going to make the

prize a secret!

I promise it will be great!  It will have a little of this and a little of that!

Why not share some of your supplies that are being neglected to someone else!

That’s my motto!


So what’s the catch or how do you enter??

It’s very simple!

Leave me a comment in my comment section with these details…

How long have you been paper crafting?

Who was your enabler/ who got you started?

And if you have a blog , how long have you been blogging?

I will post my Winner on Sept. 4th. or shortly there after!

Good Luck and thanks for celebrating with me!
