It’s My Blogoversary!


**This Giveaway has ended.**

Two years ago today, I began a pathetic attempt at creating a blog. I wanted it to be an extension of my website. Some place where I could share decorating information and tips without overcrowding my website. It has become so much more than that.
It took me a little while, but I realized that I needed to put myself, my personality, into my blog posts. I think it was a change for the better. I have met some wonderful people through my blog. People who are supportive, comment on my posts, and say the nicest things in those comments. People who have become my friends ~ who I love to tease and who I look forward to contact with.

I don't believe I've gotten any business as a result of my blog itself, but I think it allows someone who might be thinking about calling me a chance to see that this is me. What you see is what you get. I like pretty things. I like to help people. I love to laugh. I really hope that comes across.
So this is an opportunity for me to thank you. All of you who read my blog. Whether you comment or not. Whether you like me or not. I picked up some special things at a great boutique near me called Lavendar Fields. I hope that you will like my gifts, because I just love them. In fact, I can't believe I'm giving them away!

How fitting that they are wrapped in such a regal color! A journal {basically an altered composition notebook} and two metal crown hooks.

How to enter: Leave me a comment. You don't have to have a blog, but you have to have an email {and leave it with your comment if you don't have a blog}, so I can contact you if you win. Giveaway ends Sunday, January 3, 2010, at 8:00 p.m. EST. I'll either announce the winner shortly after that time or by Monday.
Thank you, again, my friends and readers. I appreciate your support of my blog more than you can know.

Congratulations Kathy! Two years is quite an achievement. I read some statistic on how most blogs that are started end after 2 months. It takes a lot to maintain them and you have done a great job! You were the first person to welcome me into this bloggity blog world and I thank you! I hope you made a cake for today!

Jane said...

Let me be the first to say Happy Blogoversary! I always enjoy reading your blog. You not only share great ideas but you are definitely someone that I see visiting and commenting on several blogs on a daily basis. I, for one, appreciate all of those visits and comments. I look forward to seeing what's in store for the new year and to wishing you many more blogoversarys!!

Happy Blogoversary! Two years. wow. That's great that you've stayed at it so long. I've only been reading blogs for less than a year, and I've seen many others abandon their post. So glad you're here to stay. I love the info you post on your blog.

Hi Kathy! A big congrats to YOU!!! I just started blogging in November, and I'm already stumped... I've been dealing with other things that happened to pop up in my life, so blogging has kinda took a backseat for now! I love your blog and I look forward to your future posts!

Congrats, Kathy! I can't imagine two years right now. I've only just gotten past three months with my blog!

Like Rhonda up there, I'm honored that you've become a reader/follower of my blog. It seems we all "read in the same circles" and I would always see you commenting on lots of other blogs. One day I decided to check yours out. Glad I did! Yours is one I stop by daily and enjoy reading all your posts.

Again, a big congrats! Can't wait to see what new and exciting stuff you'll have for us in the upcoming year!
