It's My 1 Year Blogoversary!!!!! :)

***This post will remain at the top.  Please scroll down for newer posts!***

HELLO EVERYONE!!!!  Today is my 1 Year Blogoversary!!!!  I can't believe that I started this blogging journey a year ago!  It has been one of the most rewarding experiences that I can recall!  I have met so many wonderful friends and received so much support in this bloggy world!  I remember jumping up and down when I got my first follower, and I can't believe that now I am almost to 500!!!  I started this blog as a place to post my projects, and to enter challenges, and I never thought it would turn into what it has!  :)
As a way to celebrate I am going to be doing a giveaway!  Now...  My wonderful parents have said that they would like to donate a gift card for this giveaway...  If I can reach 500 followers (I need 16 more), they will double the amount of the gift card!!!  We can do this!  :)


Here's how you can enter (1 entry for each thing listed below):

1.  Become a follower and leave me a comment here.
2.  Post my blog button on your blog and leave me a comment here.
3.  Post about my giveaway on your blog and leave me a comment here.

That's it!  Again, thank you so much to all of the friends who have always shown me so much support on here!  A lot of you have been with me since the beginning!!!!  :)
