It’s WHAT?

My blogiversary. That’s right, one year ago today, I posted my very first refreshingly unpredictable post. Crazy to think, but I’m fast approaching that time with Liam. I wonder what his “currency” is…

Anyway, to celebrate my refreshingly unpredictable (i.e. erratic) posting history, I’m having another giveaway!

[Warning: three predictable prizes ahead.]

I will be giving away one 11×14 Family Tree, and two 8×10 Family Trees. So, if you want a chance to win one of my custom Family Trees, read on! (Surprised, right?)

You can be entered in a couple of different ways:

  • First, post here and say “I LOVE TO WIN THINGS!” Tough, right?
  • Next, post about this giveaway online somewhere else. I’m not picky, anywhere else that you hang out: Facebook, message boards, your own blog. Or all of them! Please include a link either here or to my Etsy shop to qualify, and then post a link to it here. (You will be entered once for each place you post.)

I’ll find some super awesome way to pick the winners on Sunday, December 6, and post them then.

On a serious note, I just want to say ‘Thanks’ to all my loyal and new friends and readers. I love reading your comments, and I love that you put up with me and my “refreshingly unpredictable” self. You like me. You really, really like me. *sniff*
