A Whole Year {+ a giveaway!}

A year ago today, I sat down in front of the computer with a goal in mind. I wanted to start up my very own blog.

I'd been thinking about it for a while. Planning what I would write about, what I would call it, etc. I didn't really know if I would enjoy it, but I wanted to try.

And now, a year later?

Well, first of all, I never expected that people would end up reading my blog. Never! And now, with 98 followers? It excites me more than I can say. Every comment makes my day a little brighter. Every kind word about this blog makes me smile. Each one of you reading this right now makes me happy.

So thank you. Thank you SO very much.



And in honor of this one year "blogiversary", I'm celebrating by giving back to one of you lovely readers!

If you browse around Etsy, you may come across a great little shop called Cymbaline Designs. Take a peek at what Sharon has to offer:







Isn't it all lovely?

And guess what?

One lucky reader will win their choice of ANY piece at Cymbaline Designs!

Would you like to win? Well, here's what you've got to do.

FIRST (mandatory) ENTRY:: Click over to Cymbaline Designs and find your favorite piece, then come back here and leave a comment telling me about it! (You must do this before your extra entries can count.)

Please leave your email address in each comment so I can easily contact the winner!

Want some extra entries? Here's how you can get them:

  • For a second entry, mention in a separate comment that you are a follower here at The Sweetest Petunia.
  • For a third entry, tweet about this giveaway, and include the link in your comment.
  • For TWO extra entries, blog about this giveaway, come back and leave TWO seperate comments with the link.
I will be using random.org to pick a winner, and the winner will be announced next Monday, November 23rd! This giveaway is open to anyone, since Sharon told me she'd be glad to ship worldwide.


Good luck!
