I feel like I should be singing the Carpenter’s song Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down except that I am so excited to be celebrating my 1-year anniversary of blogging that even today’s rain can’t dampen my spirits!
It’s hard to believe that a year ago, today, I started our family blog to keep out of town family and friends apprised of our doings, and ended up meeting so many wonderful people and learning so much about HTML code! LOL When I first started blogging, I don’t think anyone (including FAMILY!) read my posts. Now, not only have I made some wonderful friends through the blogging world, but I actually have some followers and I have even been able to convince some close friends and family members to create their own blogs!!! I *heart* blogging!
So to celebrate this fun occasion and say thank you to all of my followers, readers, (I know you’re out there even if you are not an official follower!), and regular commenters, I have decided to do a little give-away!
Nothing homemade…I’m not quite that crafty (YET!), but I think you will enjoy this just the same. While perusing through the latest issues of my favorite scrapbooking magazine, creating Keepsakes, I saw several ads for a creating Keepsakes publication called Get Creative With Type, Fun typography ideas and tips for scrapbooking. I thought that this would be the perfect give-away from moi! (I love the written language if you haven’t noticed!!!)
This 160-page scrapbooking publication has got the most beautiful color photos of scrapbooking layouts that focus on the typography. It also includes tips and tricks for traditional, digital, and hybrid scrapbookers including favorite fonts of some the best scrapbookers in the industry such as Jessica Sprague, Amanda Probst, and Heidi Swapp.
So, how do you win…just leave me a comment! I will close the give-away contest at 5 PM CST on Sunday, October 11th and announce the winner on Monday, October 12th. Since I’m new to this give-away stuff, I’m not going to make this too complicated…I’m still trying to figure out the Random Number Generator widget!!! ;) (I never professed to be good at mathematics.) And by the way, there is a cool bonus CD that comes with the publication. I
tried it out tested it to make sure it works…because I’m a nice blogging buddy that way.
