it's a blogaversary

Morning everyone! Whose blogaversary is it? It is MY blogaversary. Two years ago (on the 12th I actually started my blog but on the 14th I started posting cards) today I started my blog! I can hardly believe two years have gone by!

First and foremost...thank you to all my wonderful friends that have supported me over the last couple of years. You guys make it all so much fun for me. I was just looking and did you know that Dawn Griffith was my very first commenter. How very cool is that...I love Dawn and she is uber talented so you should go visit her blog HERE!

Now...what you guys are all wondering...what am I going to do for my blogaversary? Well, as thank you (besides my undying thanks) I'm going to give away the package shown to the right. Yep, you will get a SU! Create a Calendar kit, TWO COPIC (R11 and R22) markers, and the three projects we made at stamp club Wednesday night.

What do you need to do to win? Leave a comment...tell me what you like about my blog and if there is something you'd wish I do or wish I'd do differently let me know that too! There is no obligation to tell anyone else but if you want your friends to get a try at the loot too then go ahead and put it on your blog or call 'em up! You have until Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. (Pacific Time) to leave your comment! I'll let you know the winner on Monday morning!

Again, thank you everyone! Please be sure to leave me some way to contact you if you win!

Be sure to scroll down for the current day's blog post!

Stacy said...

Lorie,
I feel like life is all consuming and the majority of the time I find that I am working, going to school or doing something at home but I find it difficult to find time to work on my hobbies. I really enjoy your blog because even when I get super busy and can't do any stamping I can take a minute or two out of my day to read about some or special new project. It is a pleasure. Thank you. Stacy
