Blog-a-versary Giveaway

I can hardly believe that I’ve been doing this whole “blog” thing for an entire year... SIL talked me into it (okay, I was hardly kicking and screaming - but I can still blame it on her right?) and now I have to wonder what I did with my life BEFORE blogging???

Laundry?
Dishes?
Gourmet Meals?
Exercise?
Nah, I probably just read more and wasted more time on silly things like television. I haven’t played a game of solitaire in... oh... all year... unless of course you count that spider solitaire that T the Younger plays on facebook... I have to stand over his shoulder and help him out now and then :)

Oh - the giveaway... I am feeling remiss that I haven’t done one since last July - so I’ll do two:
One of you will win a pile of handmade cards from my very own stash that I keep in my scrapbook room for “special occasions” - they are WAY cute of course - and I will post lovely pictures of them when I actually pack them up to send... which will be after I finish cleaning that room - yipes!

Another lucky reader will win a custom cake made by my own little hands - this will have to go to a local of course because I cannot ship my cakes... let’s be honest - I have nightmares when I have to deliver them more than a few miles away! So - if you live in the St George Utah area (or happen to be related to me and we’ll be visiting near the time you want a cake) (or if you happen to NOT be related to me and are willing to make the trip to get it...) - just put in your comments that you want to be included in the cake giveaway!
All comments will earn an entry - you can grab an extra entry by swinging by the book blog and commenting there as well... I’d give away more entries for following etc... but hey, I only want totally dedicated followers... you want some Kool-aid?  I'll pick a random winner (two actually) by Friday and post it here - I know you're WAY excited!!!!

P.S. - there are a TON of give-aways today - pop on over to S.I.T.S. and check out their Mr. Linky :)  Happy Spring!!!

I love notecards - I can never have enough!

Miss Anne said...

LOVE some homemade notecards! I bet they're fabulous!

Adrian's Crazy Life said...

I'm up for some cards and you can give the cake to my sweet sis who lives in St. Geo. Pop over to my blog and take a chance to win a Stampin' Up! stamp set to make more cards with.

Kristen said...

Yay! I need cards badly. Since you don't feel like flying to sunny Cali and dropping off a cake...

Oh, no thanks. I don't want your punch. I don't wear sweats with white sneakers either.

Carebear said...

Great giveaway - and great blog. You have a very funny voice. Wow, that came out wrong. Oh well, you know what I mean, right? LOL on the "what did I do before blogging?" My poor regular tv shows are so neglected, not to mention the housework!

Anjeny said...

Hey congratz on the one year mark!! You've got a good give-away.

Joelle said...

Yes, Seattle is too far - shucks!

I'd love your cards though! :)

Congrats on blogging for a year!

Krissy said...

I love witting letters and cards just make it so much more fun!

Carla said...

Queenie Jeannie said...

Happy Spring Fling!

Our Crazy Life said...

I would love to surprise my cousin in St George with a cute cake and I can always use cards! Thanks for the entry!!

Malinda said...

Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary of blogging. Mine comes up in July. The cards sound fun, I would love homemade cards. The cake, I don't know about. I know I live in Cedar, but it is still 45 minutes away, so you don't have to put me in that drawing, just for the cards.

Shannon said...

who couldn't use some lovely, handmade cards?? Thanks!

Tiffany said...

I'm always needing notecards.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I love snail mail!

You have a wonderful blog. I am visiting via Sits. I hope you will stop by and enter my giveaway too.

Chelsi said...

I don't suppose I could randomly win both, could I? I won't need a cake until November, but I'd happily wait until then to collect. :o)

Barbaloot said...

Ooh-I'd love to win either. I don't live in St. George...but I've been known to go there on occasion so I wouldn't say no to a cake from you. And I LOVE homemade cards. I wanna win!

Megan said...

Well, I'm not in Utah so the cake is out but I love cards and would love to see what you have stashed away.=)

Megan said...

I'm a following you now. =)

Songbirdtiff said...

I've really been into cards lately, and would love a set of yours. Thanks!

capperson said...

I would love the cards..I'm always in need of them and have not mastered how to do them myself..lol

I wish I could get the cake but I believe GA is a little to far for that..lol

Superjaxster said...

I am most definitely too far for the cake. Which is a darn shame since my birthday is coming up! But please do include me for the cards. Thanks!

cold cocoa said...

I knew you'd find your calling in life when you started blogging!

I too think of life pre-GoogleReader, pre-facebook...it was a little more lonely! I think it's nice to have these social outlets when I'm at home all the time. Of course, it's hard to limit time and get maybe more important stuff done at times...

i hope I win one of your fun prizes!

Brandy said...

I never wanted to live closer to Utah than I do now...but alas Va is not "local".

Happy Spring Fling!

Amy said...

Not local, but would love to win the cards! Thanks

auntrene said...

I would love the Cards, and the Cake, unfortunately unless you consider Ohio to be Local it will have to be the wonderful cards.
Thanks for the Spring Fling Giveaway.

Yay! A fellow papercrafter!

Thanks by stopping by my blog and entering my giveaway.

Don't worry about entering me for the giveaway since I make cards, and until I move to Tacoma to be around my family, I really can't get the cake! ;-)

As delicious as I am sure it would be!

Angie

Amanda said...

I don't live in Utah, but I visit the state sometimes. Maybe I can get my cake then? :)

Just kidding. Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for stopping by today. And to let you know how much I am enjoying your blog!

Happy Spring!

Comfort Joy Designs said...

You had me at "cake"!

Vickie said...

I love homemade cards! I am a stamper too. But I don't keep a stash. I should.

Shangrila said...

I would love to win some cute homemade cards! Thanks for giving me the chance to win! ;)

Preston said...

I wish I was in Utah so I could have a chance to win your cake but, alas, I am in NJ. If I do win, you can make your cake and put pictures of you eating the cake and that would make me happy. :)

Michelle said...

The cards would be fun!

jenjen said...

I could really use some cards! And your cake sounds wonderful. I am in SLC - so that is probably too far!

Thanks!

Happy Blogiversary! :)

mub said...

Great giveaway! Happy blogiversary =)

Nic said...

I think it's great that after a year you've broken the 7-bit barrier for comments. Amazing what an offer for something homemade will do to tease out the lurkers. Someday we'll be back out there, but I think it would be funny if someone from your BR got the cake.

Grand Pooba said...

Pick me please! Pretty please?

Jennw6kids said...

Ok so I would love a home made cake since my oven is broke!!

Ashley said...

New follower!
Consider me for NOT the cake. I am in Texas.
Thanks!
