giveaway time!

As promised, it's giveaway time! This week is so much fun for me, and I want you to take part in all the fun!
I am celebrating a beautiful new blog design, fantastic pictures by a great photog, and the blessings I have to be able to do all this. And I want to share with you! 

I love craft supply shopping! Who doesn't? So here is your chance to win a nice little shopping trip to one of my favs - Michael's. $25 to be exact! I went out today and picked out this pretty gift card for one of you!


Excited? Want to win? Here's how - just two little things:

1.) Be a public follower of mine on Google Friend Connect. You should see it on the right hand side of my blog. Easy!
(if you are already a follower -{thanks}! just leave a comment below)


AND

2.) Leave ONE comment on this post telling me what you want to buy with your Michael's gift card.
(duplicate comments will be deleted)
(also, please make sure you put your email address or have it linked to your account)


I can tell you what I want. A nice new pair of Gingher scissors. Or maybe some new yarn. Maybe a new craft book or two for some inspiration. But that's just me... tell me what floats your boat! 

Giveaway ends April 22, 2011 at 10:00pm CST.

Enter away (and click on over and check out my new blog design). Please? I promise you will love it!
