2 year blogiversarry + Giveaway!

I recently hit the two year mark on my blog, and I must say, I am so very grateful to have found this fun little place! I began blogging in January of '08, mainly because I admired (or you could say idolized) Ali Edwards, and I thought I could be cool like her if I had a blog. Sadly, my blog didn't make me like Ali, but that's okay. Lots of other great things have come from it!

Since that time, my blog and I have changed. I went from doing a lot of posts about scrapbooking, to a lot of posts just about me. Last winter I found this wonderful little niche of newlywed bloggers and other young women like me. Some are moms, some are teachers, some are single...but they're all incredible! I have "met" so many sweet women, women who I consider my friends! I'm lucky to have met a few of them in real life, and I hope that I get to meet others one day!

With that said, I am excited to do the first of several giveaways I have planned for the upcoming week! This is my little way of saying thank you for coming here and reading my ramblings each day! You have no idea how happy that makes me.

Today's giveaway comes from Jimmy Pickles on Etsy. Almost two years ago now, I ordered a key wristlet from her shop. I love this thing! Everyday I carry about 10 bags to my car when I'm leaving work. If I put my keys on my wrist first, it helps me from having to dig through my purse to find 'em. And even better, it's a cute way to jazz up your keys. Here's mine. It's dirty, but I don't care!


Look at these cute ones from her shop right now!


Jimmy Pickles is SO kindly giving away, not one, but 2 wristlets to my wonderful readers! If you're a lucky winner, you get to pick the wristlet of your choice from her shop. And even better, she's also offering FREE shipping on domestic orders. This way, if you aren't a lucky winner, you can still get one for just $6.50! Or you could get one of the other cute handmade things from her shop. Free shipping details are below.

So here are the rules to be a winner...you have 2 chances to get your name in the drawing.

1. Visit The Jimmy Pickles Shop, and comment here telling me which one you'd like! She has dozens of choices!
2. Receive an extra entry for being a follower. Be sure to write in your comment if you follow my blog!

Deadline is Saturday, January 30 at 12:00pm, EST. I will post a winner on Saturday evening.
