Bloggy Birthday Contest

Happy Birthday to my craft blog!

This month we turn TWO years old!

I had about 75 pages (not really) of progress and highlights and thoughts about my audience, my own work, developing strategies to gauge my success.... blah blah blah blahdyblah. I bored myself writing it, and you all probably would be too. So, we're going to just skip straight to the free stuff.

How it works:
« See my feedburner count over there? At this moment it says I have 474 subscribers through various blog readers and email subscriptions. Our goal is to have that number reach 500 subscribers in honor of 2 years blogging.

When the Feedburner say 500, I will randomly select a winner of the give-away from comments on this post (and this post only).

The faster we reach 500, the better your chances are for winning- the longer it takes, the more chances others have to sign up!

  Comment Entries
1 entry for leaving a comment
1 entry for posting about this giveaway on your site
1 entry each for a follow and post on Twitter or Facebook (include your screenname in your comment so I know who you are)
1 entry for any NEW subscriber who gives me your name as a referral!

So many chances to win!! Here is what you get:

What a Witch birdhouse (moar photos)
Haunted Houses by jannypie
Birdhouses started it all.
For years I wanted a miniature Christmas village. I looove miniatures. And I love birds. So I made myself a Christmassy birdhouse village and was happy. See how that works? Which inspired me to make more of my own home decorations, and a ton of people liked them, and so I signed up for a Christmas craft show and an Etsy store, and from there it has all been written about on my blog. Which is quite useful, actually, if only to remind us all how much my tastes have changed.


Skowly cardstock stickers
giveaway 006 copy
A set of 10 Skowly cardstock stickers, which are looking particularly scowly today.


Scented neck pillow
giveaway 012 copy
If you didn't already know, my aromatherapy pillows are filled with a blend of flax seeds and rice to maximize hot/cold temperature and fine pressure. The scented oils are 100% natural and plant-based, indicated for stress relief and health benefits. They are securely stitched, so no worries about splitting and losing your marbles. This large size wraps is perfect for the neck, joints like shoulders and knees, or lower back support.
Mmmmmm. Smells gooood. So warm. Perfect for a Fall evening. Or easing those muscles from grave digging. Which is a perfect Fall activity.


Speaking of Fall

giveaway 008
Warm autumn colors and a silver center for this flower brooch.  I have one on my purse already, because I love Fall like that.
Antique spider pin
giveaway 005 copy
A friend recently gifted this to me, and it is just too cool not to include with the Halloween theme giveaway. Yes I am tempted to keep it for myself, but I just really love you guys. Better to pay forward the gift to someone to thank them for following. It has a brooch pin back and is about 2 inches long.

Okay, recap:
Halloween birdhouse
Cardstock Skowly tags
Aromatherapy pillow
Fall flower pin
Antique spider pin
Lots of chances to win

Best of luck, and thank you for your loyalty to my blog!
