The One with the 1700th Post Giveaway!


Thursday, December 12, 2013


I haven't done a milestone blog post giveaway since my 1400th blog post - exactly an entire year ago! WOW time flies! 300 posts later... time for another giveaway! This time it'll be a little different - I'm trying to build my followers for something extra exciting I get to share in a few days (or weeks? I'm not exactly sure) - eeeeeps! The rules for the giveaway are at the bottom - and you get LOTS of chances to WIN!
Included in this awesome-sauce giveaway, to one super lucky individual, is the following:

1 yard of 24 different colors of baker's twine (including gold and silver shown below!) that The Twinery makes!
Photobucket

A PDF of the 2014 calendar that I make every year:
Photobucket

75 pieces of high quality, textured, color-core American Crafts cardstock - the best cardstock evah!


One of the pearly girly pacifier clips from my etsy shop - even if you don't have a baby girl, this would make an excellent baby shower gift!
Photobucket

My favorite candies in the universe - once you eat one you CAN'T STOP! So maybe I shouldn't give them away... :)

A toddler boy tie my mother-in-law helped me make. Again, even if you don't have a toddler boy it'd be a great gift!

A couple of cards I made that I'm fond of.

A jade green & ivory stripe Covered Goods nursing cover - the BEST nursing covers IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!!! I've been wearing mine as an infinity scarf this winter - I love it! And yet again, even if you don't have a baby that's nursing, this would make a wonderful gift for a new mom or mom-to-be!

A big assortment of scrapbooking supplies - yay!

3 AMC movie tickets - since the closest AMC theater is thousands of miles away... I figure these should get used instead of taking up space in my wallet!

And last, but certainly not least, and always my favorite part of the giveaway - a PaigeBook!

 I made this book on Tuesday while the kids were napping - I'm finally streamlining the process after making almost 50 books in 7 years!
 It's 5 1/2" x 7 1/2"
 The covers are made from leftover wood boards from re-doing the floors in my parent's house in Washington!
 I used the Persimmon line by Basic Grey as well as coordinating colors of cardstock, two pieces of felt, and printer paper to make the inside pages - or if you want to get technical - the signatures.


I also embellished the cover with Persimmon stickers and die cuts with a title of "Happy". Maybe this book would be good for writing down happy thoughts/things you're grateful for?

My favorite thing to add to books is doodads on the binding. Pearls seemed to fit this style nicely!

I sewed it together using a copic binding with white DMC embroidery floss that I swiped through bee's wax. The things you have to do to make a book :)


It's my newest favorite PaigeBook and I might just hold onto it for myself!

  1. Oooooh wow: 1700 post - that is quite the accomplishment! I hope it is open for international readers too ( or at least this danish girl ha ha ). If it is - and I have to try - then I will participate with 4 entries ( instagram, comment, pinterest and following the site ). I hope I have done it right :) ( PS: this is kind of embarrasing, but I told you Haribo was actually danish, but shame on me, it is german. Ha ha... But the factory is still really close to home and that is what fooled me. They mentioned it in TV the other day: "A lot of danes brag about Haribo, but it is German". That is directly translated from danish television :) Have a nice day while I cross my fingers for 12-13 more days. Happy holidays!
