1000+ Follower Giveaway

Do you remember my old header?  I can't believe that my blog is over a year old and there are now over 1000 followers!  It is still crazy to me that so many of you take the time to visit and leave such lovely comments!  It ALWAYS makes my day to read them!  I have a few things to give away as a small token of thanks to those of you that read my blog...


ONE Winner will receive a set of Scrappy Moms Stamps of her choice and a 4 color set of Baker's Twine!  

I had another idea last week and I hope you will like it!  My mom was in town and raided my overflowing card stash, which gave me an idea.  I thought some of you might also enjoy "raiding" my stash of cards - because REALLY I will never be able to send them all out.  

FOUR winners will receive one set of 4 cards/envelopes.

To enter...you must either be a "follower" or email subscriber AND leave a comment underneath this post.  The deadline is 12 am CST SUNDAY, May 15th.  I will draw 5 winners using random.org.  Make sure that there is a way for me to contact you...either through your blogger profile OR an email address.  (If you leave your email address - please leave it like this to avoid spammers: lauren AT gmail DOT com.)

I know it's not a HUGE giveaway, but it is a small way for me to say thank you...so THANK YOU!

Congrats on so many followers Lauren!! One thing you should be so proud of is that you have this many followers because they just simply love your creativeness - it's not because you have tons of giveaways (like a lot of bloggers... don't get me wrong, I do love me some blog candy once in a while! :)). I have always loved that you blog just to share your work, not because you're out to gain thousands and thousands of followers! I look forward to more and more of your projects!!
