An Announcement and A Giveaway!!!!!!!!!

Merry Holidays: one of my December Daily pages.

Lots of exclamation marks for this blog post this morning!!!!  It's the holiday season and I hope you are enjoying the season so far.  During this time of year, hubby and I like to give back to our loved ones.  And some of my loved ones are you, my dear blog readers!

First, a quick ANNOUNCEMENT: Heather and I have decided to take two weeks off from Just Two Midwest Girl Scrap Challenges for the holidays.  Our next challenge will be posted on Friday, January 3, 2014 (our first challenge of the new year!)  What does this mean for you?  You have two extra weeks to link up to our last project challenge, Holiday Cards!!!  Yeah!!!  That means two more weeks at a chance to win a $5 Two Peas gift card!  So make sure you check out the deets and link up your project.


Now onto the super fun giveaway!  I am so thankful for each and every one of my blog readers.  You inspire me to write new and interesting posts and share little pieces of my life.  You are nonjudgmental and supportive in time of need.  For this, I am forever grateful!  This year, I hit 50 followers and now at 61!!  Although followers are not why I love my blog, it is nice to know people appreciate my content.  So I want to say thank you all!!! GIVEAWAY: I am giving away the Scrapbook and Cards Today 2014 Planner and Sketch Calendar.  My sister gifts me this calendar every year and I love it so much!  It's filled with tons of sketches and inspiration by top scrapbook designers.  And new for 2014, it is a planner with lots of pages to add in dates and jot down events.  You want this calendar!

How to win:  To win this calendar, 1) become a follower of my blog if you are not.  (Yes, I am shamefully requesting you follow my blog, but the point of this giveaway is to thank my followers.  Please note in your comment if you are a new or existing follower), and 2) leave me a comment on this blog telling me what your favorite part about blogging is.  That's it!!  I like to keep giveaways fairly easy.  I will post the winner on January 1, 2014.  Good luck and thank you again for following along on my blogging adventures!

  6. Congrats on your followers! I'm 66 :)
    It's hard to pin down one favorite thing about blogging. I really like to be able to go back and see what I was thinking when I blogged that particular item I guess. I love rereading the details. (also why I like scrapping, to relive the memory)

    I'm an existing follower (and have been for a while now). Betcha didn't know that I have your blog on my favorites menu and that I check it between my email and my Facebook! I am a HUGE fan of your creative talent and you in general (wink wink). I am not a blogger, but I LOVE your blog b/c it lets me see past the projects and into who you are. It's more intimate than just what you choose to share through your art.
