Before I talk about my prize, let me just share a few ways you can follow me, just in case you are new here and want to stay a while! I’ve hooked myself up into the all the social networks arenas because I am a social networking junkie. If you look on my sidebar, you will see a little section called “social” with some icons underneath! Those will link you to all my accounts. Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, etc…. 🙂 Also right below that is a way you can subscribe to my blog via email, meaning all my posts will be sent your email inbox! 🙂 If that fancies you, I hope you will subscribe!

Here are a few videos I thought I’d link up today to give you an idea of what kind of projects I showcase over on my youtube channel in case you a new guest today and videos are your thing!


Now on to my giveaway! I thought I would let the winner choose the crafty goodness! So, I’m offering up a gift certificate to Ellen Hutson!!! My personal favorite online retailer.. You have until January 5th at 11:59PM EST to get your comments in. I find using Rafflecopter is easy and fun so there are lots of ways to earn extra entries if you want!
