Blogiversary Giveaway!

Before the holidays, I remembered that I started this blog right at the new year last year. I checked the exact date and it was Jan. 3, 2011. So that means today is my first blogiversary! And...it's my 100th post!

My first blogiversary/100th post seems like a great time for my first giveaway! So I'm giving away a Winter Lace Cricut Cartridge. Winter Lace felt appropriate for how cold its about to get here in Huntsville. More details including how to enter later.

This almost makes me look like a Tennessee fan
It's been an interesting year and this blog has definitely been a source of positivity and productivity in my life. My sewing room doesn't quite look as organized as it did just short of a year ago. This time last year I was still assembling it though. I remember watching the Arkansas-Ohio State Sugar Bowl game while assembling the shelves.

Finished Sewing Room
I refined the look of the blog what feels like a million times with little tweaks here and there but recently it got a whole redo.
First Artist Alley Booth
I tried my hand at the artist alley of Persacon and sold some, but not nearly as much as I hoped. The mustaches were a hit though! I've decided to take the leftovers and start an etsy store this year, so be on the look out! (Don't worry, I'll tell you.) And other than my niece, I had an entirely handmade Christmas.

Embroidered Wreath Pillow

I also made one of the costumes that's been on my list for about 2 years. It was pretty much a dream costume, but one I figured with enough time, I could accomplish. AND I DID! I made a few others, but this is my favorite of the year!

And I got to swim with dolphins in the Bahamas.

Foot push!
Resolutions for the year, sewing wise, have already been made. Otherwise: lose more weight, make more papery things with the cricut and become a little more adventurous with it. And check my mail more often!

Without further ado, let's get to the giveaway! To enter, all you have to do is be a follower of my blog (*points to the right*) and leave a comment on this post. If you need inspiration, tell me what your favorite christmas present was this year! Make sure to let me know a way to contact you in case you win.

But wait, there's more! If you want another chance to win, follow my twitter account (@auburnkt), tweet this link, then come back and leave another comment letting me know.

Giveaway will close on Jan. 10, 2012 at 5pm CST. Using Random.org, I'll select a winner from the valid entries and notify them via email. If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, I'll select an alternate winner. US residents only, not responsible for lost/unread emails.

This giveaway is closed now. 

Happy New Year!
