~ A Milestone Giveaway ~

Monday morning I hit 50 followers on my little blog here. A small number compared with some other, more popular blogs, but a milestone to me nonetheless. {Taking into consideration that in March of this year I had about 5 followers, this is a big deal to me.}

So, what better excuse to have a GIVE. A. WAY!!! Plus, it's Wednesday ~ we can all use a little pick-me-up to get over the hump in the middle of the week.

Some of you may recall that I purchased some pretty storage boxes from Michael's a little while ago. I had one I specifically purchased for a giveaway, along with a few little goodies to tuck inside.


Cute storage box with magnetic snap closure.

Journal, notepad and note cards tucked away inside . . .


To enter this giveaway all you need to do is leave me a comment below AND become a follower of my blog {hey, we need to get to the next milestone so we can have an even better giveaway!}. You'll have until midnight on Sunday, August 16, 2009, to enter and I will announce the winner on Tuesday, August 18th. This giveaway is open in the U.S. and Canada.



**There seems to be a few questions on where my "follow" box is. When I follow someone's blog I usually just click on the banner above the person's blog header that says "Follow Blog". There is also a box at the very bottom of my blog, where it shows the pictures of other followers, if you prefer to go that route.

Love this little box, Kathy!!

Happy to see you over at DesignTies yesterday... and yes, my weekends are packed for some time to come... through the summer like you suggested, but into the fall too as we start the remodel of our basement!! No rest for the wicked, as they say!

Congrats on 50... soon we'll be celebrating 100!!

Kathy how wonderful! Thank you for letting me know you received your box of goodies! I'm really surprised you received it so fast. ~WOW! My hubby took it to work with him Monday and mailed it from the base post office. I never it dreamed it would be so quick. I hope nothing was broken.
