Happy 100th Post to Me!

It's Official! This is my 100th post. I started this blog with the intent of sharing my trials and tribulations with my friends and family. Almost a year later I have over 50 subscribers (not much compared to some but amazing to me) and over the last two months my daily reads have gone from 5-10 to over 60 a day. Some days reaching into the 150+ range! I can only hope we continue to grow.

As you can see things have changed a little around here. I have been working long and hard to change the look of my blog as my blog has looked almost the same from the beginning. My favorite change? My itty bitty little siggy :) I have also included a few more fabulous blogs to my side bars. Some daily reads, some frugal blogs, scrapbook and blog design etc...

I hope you like the change as much as I do.

I thought long and hard about my 100th post. Do I do the usual 100 things about me or have my readers tell me about themselves? Do I make it short and sweet or give some sappy speech about my blogging journey yadda, yadda, yadda? Eh. None of the above sounded right. I realized I wouldn't even be blogging if there wasn't anyone reading so how do I show my readers that they are important to me?

A Giveaway of course!

This giveaway is to honor my 100th post and honor my readers! When choosing where to purchase the product I would be giving away it's was obvious! Etsy! I come from a very crafty family and I jump at any chance I get to support the creator of something directly. I searched Etsy for hours looking for the perfect item. I wanted something small but special. Something unique. Something Damask, duh!


Etsy Seller A Little Bit of Somethin' out of Austin Texas is the creator of these darling little magnets. You will be receiving a set of 3 Damask print, refrigerator magnets each measuring 1 1/2 inches.

How do I enter you ask? Easy. Leave a comment with your email address. To better your chances subscribe to my blog and leave another comment indicating you did. If you are already a subscriber leave me a second comment letting me know you already do. I want to make it fair for those who subscribed already. To give everyone ample time to enter I am placing the deadline for the November 16th. I'll choose a winner via Random.org and announce it November 17th.

**Update: Choosing to end this baby early! These little magnets are burning a hole in their little package waiting to be placed on someones fridge! So I'll be announcing the winner on Friday November 14th!**

You can't win if you don't enter!

Stay tuned because my 1 Year Anniversary is fast approaching and I have another FABULOUS Etsy gift to giveaway!

Wow! Look at all the entries! Thanks Everyone!

Jenn - I made my siggy with good ol' Paint! I just sized down the paper, cut it small and added some text. I have to upload it every time I make a post but it's cute so it's worth it :) Let me know if you need any more help!
