GIVEAWAY!! A Special Spring Bounty Just for You!

It has taken me a little while to get to this but I'm so excited!!
After much fussing and fiddling, I have finally decided what to give away in celebration of my
300th post!
Actually I don't know what it is yet.. once the winner is picked, it will be a
CUSTOM gift package
put together specially for that individual!

Just what you would like... I'll visit your blog or site, and 'custom fit' your gift just to you!

There are so many different personalities who stop and visit.. those who love decorating, home decor, the crafters, the artists, the collage enthusiasts, those who are retired and those who are just starting their careers, or those, who like me, stay at home and change diapers all day! I want to say thank you to each and everyone of you.. you make my day more special and gently remind me of my hidden potential. Everyday, you visit, comment and put a smile on my face. You lift up, encourage and support and I truly want to thank you!

So, I can't show you, but you'll love it! I promise!
I wish I could give a gift to everyone who visits, but unfortunately it's just not in my budget! :) But I promise, if I win Powerball or the lottery, then it's a giveaway, everyday for everybody!
So, you know the way to play... leave a comment and your entered! I'll draw a winner on the
First Day of Spring, March 20th!
Feel free to pass the word along, and thank you!!

Wow! You are one thoughtful gal! That sounds like an incredibly generous offer that's too good to refuse, Abbie.

Thanks for the visits, I appreciate them all. Hope that you may have the chance to bake soon between the diapers and the crafting and the homework and the dinner making and the cleaning and all the many things that go on in your world.

Have a great day!

Congrats again on 300 posts Abbie !

Of course i would love to be entered in your generous giveaway !
Good luck to everyone !

have a good weekend !

Mary said...

Wow! 300 posts is certainly a lot, congratulations Abbie! As I've only just 'met' you I can see there is a lot to backtrack through when I have time. I love your profile - it sounds like you have had an interesting life. Mine has been similar and hopefully, though getting long in the tooth, I like to think it will continue as I've lots to still see and do with the time I have remaining!

My dh is from Manchester, NH and I lived there several years in the sixties, so yes, I know that Spring is often late in arriving. I left New England 30 yrs. ago and still miss it a lot - especially in Summer when the weather is usually cooler than here in the South - I like that, being English of course!

Please enter me in your exciting celebratory drawing - I love anything and everything so whatever the prize, if I'm lucky, I'll be happy.

Have a great weekend and hopefully Spring is almost there for you too.

Hi Abbie-My first visit to your blog and what-do-ya-know, there's a contest! How cool. I love your blog-read back posts for a couple of months. You will definitely be on my must-read list now. You all up in New England sure deserve the first day of spring. Meanwhile down in the south, we've been begging for snow! Can we trade?
