One Year and 100 Posts Later Giveaway

I can't believe I have been blogging for one whole YEAR today! It's also my 100th post!
Everyone tried for the longest to get me to start a blog and I was just not interested. What the heck was wrong with me?
I love blogging!!!
So to celebrate I am having a giveaway!
I made this little Gourdie-Do just for this giveaway. Why a snowman you ask? Because it's COLD everywhere! BRRRRRRRR!

Now here is what you have to do..........
1* Tell me you love my blog!
2* Follow me, you always need to know what I am doing!
3* Post this badge on your blog, telling everyone about my blog giveaway!
Please be sure to tell me if you do #'s 1,2 or all three.
(I really never understood #3, the more people that sign up, the less chance you
have to win, but then if you don't the less chances you have to win!?) Confused?

That's all there is to it! For each one of these you do I will put your name in the hat for a chance to win my Snowman Gourdie-Do.
The drawing will be January 22.

I bead gourds. I hope you will drop by my blog and see my work also. I love your wimsical creations. The are adorable. Some are a little scary but thats what makes them even cutier. I will be back many times and look forward to getting to know you too.

I do more then my gourds but that is my main goal in life is to finish my huge White Buffalo of the Plains gourd.
How do I get the tag to post on my blog. I don't know how to do that yet. Can you please explain. I am fairly new to blogging too.

WOWZER I love your creations and your blog!
I have been a follower for a while now!
And I will add your giveaway to my blog!


So glad I made it in time!!

Jans Gourds said...

Hi Linda,
Yep, I did all three. I visited your gallery too. I was wondering what you use for your sculpting. I use beeswax but then everything get beaded instead of painted. Your way is much faster and probably a lot more practical when it comes to selling them. Mine run into the $1000 for the big ones and I usually end up making smaller ones for gifts like my Ole World Santa and the Fabrege Boat.
Such character in the faces of your gourds.

~Tonya said...

Congratulations!! And what a wonderful way to Celebrate by being so generous.

I Love your gourdies and one would be so LUCKY to win. I am following, I am commenting and I am posting your giveaway on my blog...your post was funny.

Yup, I am posting the badge, but then my odds of winning will be less LOL

Loved seeing the WIP too. It is neat to watch your gourdies come to life.
