My first post went live on February 10th – three years ago, but I was so afraid that I wouldn’t have anything to say that I actually did five posts in a row and saved them all up and published them all on the same night, back dating them to beginning February 1st. I know it sounds odd but if you knew me better it would all make sense. Why? IRL, I’m kinda shy. It was, and still is, totally out of character for me to do something like a blog . I still laugh about this because I can still hardly believe it. My goodness, I never really thought anyone would look, ‘cept maybe my local girlfriends and John.
I’m sure you’ve heard the quote Rules for Happiness. Rules for Happiness: something to do, someone to love and something to hope for. This blog met the first need and in my case the other two were already taken care of :-) Somewhere in the journey I celebrated my faith, made a lot of friends, learned how truly kind people can be, figured out how to take a picture, improved my spelling, boosted my confidence, found a couple of companies that would let me use their products and sent out a card or two. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating – you all are a second family to me and I’m so glad you’re here! I read your suggestions about things I could offer and I like them all!! So here’s what I’m going to do this time around.
There will be a winner for each year that I’ve blogged that means 2 goodie pack winners plus 1 grand prize winner. The prizes are:
Grand Prize (1):
Spellbinders Grand Circles Nestabilities
Impression Obssession – Delft Cube #3
Provocraft Cricut Cartridge – Sweethearts
Sizzix Embossing Folders – Damask Set
Pearls – pink, peach, blue
Basic Grey Glazed Brads
BoBunny Premade Page Pad
Prima Stamp – Flourish
Goodie Packs (2):
A Goodie Pack with 3 of my available cards
Cardstock Pre-cuts made using new Spellbinders Dies (Pick 5, 1 color per set)
(Thankfully because I have a Spellbinders Grand Calibur this will be an easy feat – lol!)
A JustRite Stampers Stamp Storage Mini Binder Box (this will protect your goodies as I send them through the mail)
The celebration will run for one week beginning right now and ending on Wednesday, February 16th at Midnight CST. As usual you are free to leave a comment each day, but the comment must be left on this post only. In your comment tell me what you are grateful for today, this can be anything and doesn’t have to be craft related. Please do me a favor – wherever you can – in a blog post, in a forum, when you’re talking to your friends, please mention I’m celebrating and send them on over to this post!! This time around I’ll announce the winner after 2/16 and the winner will have 24 hours in which to contact me. I’m finding 48 hours is a long time to wait for a winner and most people move on and forget or don’t know there are still prizes out there. In any case I’ll be sure to send out a notification once all the prizes are claimed. Thanks for helping me celebrate and thanks for spending time with me here at Amazing Paper Grace.
P.S. During the coming week I’ll have an “add ons” for the Blogaversary grand prize that I’ll post separately. If you’re a winner and have left a comment for that particular day, you’ll get the add on :-)
Don’t forget to leave your tips for the February 31 Days!!
