hello lovlies :]

so, this is my 100th post.  seems like a milestone...a small one, but still one nonetheless.  :]  also, this morning i hit another milestone and passed the 1000 visitor mark :]  so double hooray for blogging milestones!  in honor of this exciting occasion, i've decided that it's time for another giveaway.  i want to thank y'all for the sweet comments you all leave.  i'm excited to be gathering new followers each day, and i encourage you all to drop a line whenever...i'd love to get to know some of you strangers a bit better!  so as a thank you for spending time with me here, i'll be giving away three special prizes to three special people :]  the first two prizes are one of these super cool button rings, made by me! :]

i have a huge variety of patterns and colors, including but not limited to, woodgrain, grandma florals, gingham in many colors, plaids and stripes...the list goes on and on...

the third and grand prize winner will receive this handpainted tote:

i'm in love with it and plan to make one for myself too, once i'm done with the craft swap...that seems to be taking up most of my creative time these days...

so, how do you win you ask?  here's what you do...leave a comment with your name and your favorite craft/design/art blog.  that's it!  easy as pie :]  i look forward to hearing from you all!  winners will be announced friday so hurry up and enter!
