Guest Posting at Stash Manicure & Giveaway **CLOSED***!!!!

Hi everyone,

I'm guest blogging over at Stash Manicure today.
So, go check out my post over there.

our new Button yes you may take it with you ...

But first, before you leave, I'm having a GIVEAWAY!!!!

Today, I'm hoping you will all celebrate my 2 year blog anniversary with me.
I can't believe it's been that long.
I have enjoyed it so much and have made so many wonderful friends
.
In order to celebrate, I'm having a little giveaway.

I made a nice hanging heart since Valentines day is just around the corner..


I also cut some 3.5 inch tumblers using my GO! Cutter mini tumbler die.
The tumblers are all in different shades of pink.
These were all cut from my stash and are mostly country prints.
There are 60 precut tumblers for you.

Just enough to make a nice little table runner.
I will also include a few more surprise goodies with this package.

So, all you need to do to enter is leave me a comment.

For a second chance to win, become a follower and leave another comment.
If you are already a follower, leave me a comment telling me you already follow me.

For a third chance to win, leave me a comment on my post at Stash Manicure.
And come back here and comment that you did.

That's it!!!

Make sure I can contact you some way by email.

I will pick the winner on Sunday.

Don't forget to go over at Stash Manicure and send me some love over there.

Hugs

What a wonderful idea the kids and the placemats. I love getting Stash Manicure everyday in my email. It is something I look forward to each day. I like to save the emails into my quilting file when it is something I think I'll try someday and your placemats, will be great. I only have one son and a daughter-in-law, but they are fun, so perhaps they'll indulge me and try it. Thanks again for the opportunity to win your generous giveaway, Ariane.

Hi Ariane- dropping in from Stash Manicure. I love the hearts and the pink tumblers-- I had breast cancer last year (whew it's gone) and so PINK has taken on a whole new meaning for me. Would love to win. Thanks for the great placemat idea- what a cool keepsake to have (especially as they get older and don't make as many fun crafty projects) Congrats on two years!

I just love Stash Manicure as it introduces me to all kinds of wonderful bloggers! I have chosen the word "Organize" as my word of the year. Yes, there are many places in my house in desperate need or organization, but it goes deeper than that. How about organizing time? Or thoughts? Good luck to you in "Simplify"-ing your life this year!

Shannon said...
