Blog Anniversary & Giveaways

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I’m sure if you hadn’t started before, you are full swing into your Christmas decorating.  My back went on Friday as I was bringing bins back up to the attic, so mine is slow going.  This seems like the perfect time to celebrate my blog anniversary!

I can’t believe it’s been 6 years since I started my blog!  As I have done in previous years, I’ve called upon some creative bloggy friends to help me out with doing giveaways to celebrate. 

This is a way to say thank you to each and every one of you who reads my blog ~ even if you don’t leave a comment!  : )  Every day, there will be a new giveaway.  They will all end on the same day, so in some cases there will only be one or two days to get yourself entered.

So, let’s get this party started!  Giveaway #1 has been generously offered by Celestina Maria Designs.  Celeste has graciously offered this Snowlady Makeup Light Bulb Ornament!

Isn’t she pretty?  What a great addition to your Christmas tree or décor this year!  Celeste makes beautiful items, whether for Christmas or any time of the year.  She also has an Etsy shop here.   Here are a few of her other creations. Trio of Santas Tree Ornaments 3pc Set, Hand Painted, ECS, CSSTeam

A Merry Christmas Half Bucket Holder for Cards, Door Decor, Hand Painted and Designed, CSSTeam, ECS

 

Snowlady Welcome Wall or Door Decor, Hand Painted Metal Pocket, ECS, CSST

Entering is easy and there are three ways to enter:

  • Leave a comment on this post telling me you’d like to be entered for this giveaway.
  • If you’ve ever purchased something from Celestina Marie Designs, leave me another, separate comment telling me about it.
  • Visit Celestina Marie Designs Etsy shop and come back and leave me a separate comment telling me about something that caught your eye.

Because these friends are helping me out and I don’t want to add any undue responsibility, this giveaway will only be open to U.S. residents.  Giveaway will end at midnight EST on December 6, 2013.  Winner will be chosen via random.org.  Winner will have 48 hours to confirm their win after being notified or a new winner will be chosen.  You do not have to have a blog to enter, but you must leave me a way to contact you in your comment.

Thank you for being a part of my blogging journey!

This Giveaway Has Ended.
