The first was from S&O Productions, a very talented sister partnership that makes beautiful books and sells on Etsy here.
I won this romantic book
Inside, it has beautifully decorated pages with quotes about love and such like these
I think I'll use mine as a trip diary, but it would be wonderful for someone who just got married or just got engaged to keep a journal of that special time. Just a thought.
My second giveaway win was hosted by Diana who runs the Texas Blogging Gals blog group as well as her personal blog at To Everything A Season. Are there any female bloggers from or living in Texas who are not a part of this group? See my cute little button over there ----->? You can have one too! Anyway she generously hosted a giveaway when the group reached 100 members and it has now passed 150. Included in the giveaway were a darling handmade apron that I just love love love!, homemade salsa and jam-delish, and a set of recipe cards and organizing box. I needed something to store all my recipes I find online. Here I am in my sassy apron!
Inspired by these wins, I think I'll host my own giveaway soon. Maybe to commemorate 50 *real* followers when I get there? So if you're not following yet, do it. Then the prize will come sooner! I say real because I'm on there and don't really count, neither does my husband in this case, and my former roommate and friend Stefanie is somehow getting counted twice. I love her, but once is sufficient! So I guess when we get 53, then it will really be 50.
And hey, if you know of any really great giveaways going on or are hosting one yourself, feel free to leave it in the comments!
