One Year Old & 100th Post Giveaway!!!!

I can not believe that I have posted 100 times! I started May 2008 after Dawn of The Feathered Nest encouraged me to set up my own blog. So I am celebrating three separate occasions...One Year Old/100th Post! Yes, I said three occasions.....So guess what, I am going to also have my very FIRST giveaway/appreciation/birthday & welcome, surprises!! If you will leave me a comment, mention this giveaway on your blog & add my blog to your blog roll. I will put your name in a hat to draw the winners on June 7th!!! (I will be going on vacation June 11-June 30th so this will be a quick turnaround. ) Yes, winners! I am going to give away this vintage box with the divided slots & the featured scrap booking ledger. (The pages on the inside of the ledger are blank so that you can use it as a journal to add your creative thoughts or put pictures of loved ones.) Now that makes two gifts for two lucky winners but I have three occasions so I should give away three things, right? Well, someone else will also receive this beautiful photo album! It is full of lovely frames and tied up with a bow. It will make a lovely gift or can be filled with your own family photos.
I hope you will get the word out and support me on my birthday. I wanta' party and you are all welcome! You must leave your blog address, email & I will let each one know when your name is drawn.
Thank you for a wonderful year of making friends and inspiring me to go forward with the talents that the Lord has given me. I have made a few "errors" in this last (for those I have already apologized ) and I pray that those errors have made me a better & stronger person. But with that behind me I will look forward to another year, making new friends, developing my current friendships & meeting "creative buddies" along the way. You are all truly are a blessing to me in my personal life...
Best of Luck to each one......

Halo Hill said...

Hi Sharon! I love your blog and all of your work! Seriously, don't doubt yourself, but I know how you feel. I hope you feel great about what you do very soon, because you do beautiful work. I am also putting you on my blogroll! Have you done any of KC's classes yet? I'm in the Collage Camp group taking the first class (wall hanging) and just joined the shrine altar group as well. If you haven't choose one, you will be so glad! She is a very generous teacher, and does gorgeous work. She'll help build your confidence as an artist too! Her instructions are wonderful, and make you feel that you can do anything. (Of course, you CAN, she is just more convincing than we are to ourselves)!

Hoping to see you around more!

Becky said...

Hi Sharon,
