Good Sunday morning! I was looking thru some of my older posts earlier and realized that December 3rd was my one year blogaversary!! Wow! I knew I was getting close to the one year mark, but didn't realize that it had already passed. I have really enjoyed this past year of blogging. I've "met" some truly awesome people and have learned so much about crafting and life in general! I hope and plan to continue blogging for many years to come.
I love the store Hobby Lobby. We don't have one in the town where I currently live. We did have one in the previous town I lived in and I really loved going there and getting lots of wonderful creative ideas. You know the old saying, you don't know what you have until it's gone? Well, that's my feelings on Hobby Lobby! I didn't appreciate having the store in my back yard until I moved! I was talking about missing it the other day and my hubby asked me if I had checked on line to see where the nearest store was located. Talk about a "duh" moment! So I jumped on line and lo and behold, there is a store located about an hour from us! I was so excited. So yesterday morning, we got up bright and early and headed out. It was heaven!!! We spent about two hours in that store just looking at everything! I came out of there almost a hundred dollars poorer! Hubby said it was probably a good thing that it is an hour away from us! But rest assured, I will be going back quite frequently. Only he doesn't know that yet!
While there, I was thinking of what I could buy or make for my giveaway. I was wanting to do a Christmas giveaway but then when I realized my one year blogaversary had just passed, I thought it would be better to do a giveaway for that. So I guess it's kind of a two in one givewaway. I couldn't decide what to buy or make, so as we were checking out, I saw the gift cards and a light bulb moment came to me! Why not just give a gift card?? That way the lucky winner could chose what they want! So that is what I am offering. A $25 gift card to Hobby Lobby!
Here are the rules:
1. You MUST be a follower of my blog. New followers are always welcome!
2. This giveaway is open to everyone, no matter what corner of this big ole Earth you call home. After all, it doesn't require a lot of postage to mail a gift card! All you have to do is comment on this post ONLY that you would like to be entered. Comments left on other posts will not be counted.
3. If you have a blog and list this on your side bar, I will give you an extra entry. You must let me know in your comment on this post if you do this step. And I will be checking to see if it is listed on your side bar before I give you a second entry. I feel like that is only fair to the ones who actually do take the time to list it on their blogs. If you don't have a blog, you can still enter, but you must leave me an e-mail addy so that I can contact you if you are the winner.
4. I will use random.org to draw a winner on Sunday, December 12, 2010. That way the winner will be able to get their gift card in time to use for Christmas if they wish!
That's it! Pretty simple, huh? Good luck to everyone!
It started snowing here yesterday afternoon, and we awoke to about 10 inches this morning! Hubby is out on his tractor "playing" in the snow! He's so cute! Just like a little kid. I'm staying warm and cozy in my fuzzy p.j.'s, doing some laundry, working on some crafts and baking some Christmas cookies later on today.
Until next time. . .
