happy happy and two giveaways

Happy birthday, dear blog! Yes, it's my blogiversary. Exactly one year ago today I started an incredible journey I could not have imagined would bring me to where I am today—and still be leading me to what I believe will be amazing places to come. So much good—friendships, connections, opportunities, freedom—has come of this incredible, challenging, eye-opening thing called blogging. I'm very grateful. And am so looking forward to many more years of creativity, inspiration, and adventure! Thank you all for coming along on this journey with me!

And I thought it was fitting to celebrate this occasion to say thank you to you all with a giveaway—or two. First, CSN Stores is offering a $35 gift certificate to one lucky winner. I have recently been searching CSN for a briefcase or this Thomas Paul laptop cover. So, like me, you can spend this on a treat for yourself or buy something special for someone on your Christmas list. You can find anything, and I mean anything, at CSN's over 200 stores.

And the next giveaway is a $25 gift card to Pier 1. They've got amazing holiday decor and entertaining stuff in store right now, so it's the perfect time to get shopping there for Christmas gift giving and parties!

To be entered to win these giveaways, first be sure you are a follower through Google Friend Connect. Then leave a comment letting me know what's on your wishlist this season.

That's it! Two winners will be chosen by and announced this time next Friday. Contest ends 11 pm EST next Thursday 12/16/10. Good luck to all!

Happy 1st Blogiversary and thank you for the inspiration.

I have become a fan of CSN stores. I've been looking at laptop covers, too, and the Thomas Paul Luddite cover makes me smile, since I tease some friends re being Luddites when it comes to social media.

Happy Blogiversary! I just ordered my son's birthday gift from CSN and I have to say, they were fast delivering it. But this would come in handy to order his Christmas gift now! Thanks :)

Congrats on a year of blogging. It's a lot of fun and a great way to "meet" new people and discover new ideas.

I was lucky enough to receive an early Christmas gift of two new chairs for my home, but I do have one wish-that my kids and husband would put their dishes in the dishwasher and not leave them to get crusty in the sink!
