100 Followers?! Giveaway


I cannot believe that there are 100 people officially following my blog.

I know that blogging is not about followers.

I also know that I regularly read blogs that I don't necessarily "follow".   So, as we're often told, the numbers certainly don't tell the whole story.  (Really should update my Google Reader.)

But since I remember being super-excited to have 12 followers (meaning all the little squares were filled up under my GFC feature), 100 has seemed almost insurmountable. 

Blogging is a creative outlet.  Some, like me, might even say it's a social outlet.  I generally interact with real-life people everyday (not always, folks), but it's nice to be part of a blogging community of (mostly) like-minded people.

In honor of this milestone...

I going to give away a package of treats that could brighten up anyone's February.  (We've got three more months of winter staring us down up here in Alaska.  Maybe your winter is over.  Maybe it never began (I don't like you).  Perhaps you're like me.  Trapped on the tundra.)

This will definitely make the next few months a little warmer...and sweeter!  If there's no winter where you are, I'm sure you can at least make use of chocolate, right?  Whatever will you do...?

I bought this felt bag at Tar-jay because it was too sweet and cute to pass up.  Then, I realized it needed a purpose.  Hello purpose!
The hat is handmade from Alaska Chicks and the gray gloves are super-soft, also from Tar-jay.
To enter:  Become a follower and leave a comment!
Yep, that's it!
I've got enough stuff to do, so we're gonna keep things simple around here :)
Giveaway begins today and ends on Monday, February 13.

  15. Congrats on the 100 followers! I think I became 113, so you've gotten even more! How impressive! I don't actually need the delightful looking warm hat and gloves (per my mention on my other comment that I live in Hawaii... don't hate me... I do miss having "seasons"). Just wanted to congratulate you! If, for some chance, I do "win," you are welcome to choose another winner. All I ask in return is a follow. I look forward to reading more.


Comments make my day!
