Seasons Givings Blog Hop

Post 1 of 2…click here for my Reverse Confetti SFYTT
So thrilled to be part of Latisha’s Seasons Givings Blog Hop for the 4th year!  You should have arrived from Lori Craig’s blog!  I’m sure that Lori has some awesome eye candy for you!!!

If you didn’t pop over here from Lori’s, you’ll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Lawn Fawn blog!  In case you get lost along the way, the entire hop listing is at the end of my post.

This is a thank YOU for my readers, for stopping by and saying hello!  Thank YOU for inspiring me.

First up, I thought I’d do a run down of my favorite projects I posted for 2015:






Whew!  There you have it, some of my favorite projects from 2015!

As a thank you for joining me in my 2015 journey, I have a couple giveaways.  Please make sure you read how this will work, I’d hate to have to redraw winner(s).

I’m giving away a total of four prizes…three are specifically for my US Friends and One is specifically for my INTERNATIONAL friends.  Sorry to have to separate based on geographical location but if you are able to give me a US mailing address, you can enter the US Friends giveaway.

There are 3 USPS Priority Flat Rate boxes up for grabs for my US Friends (2 large + 1 medium)

Mystery Box #1 (US Friends Only)

Mystery Box #2 (US Friends Only)

Mystery Box #3 (US Friends Only)




All the Mystery Boxes contain plenty of new goodies along with goodies that are horribly neglected.


This givewaway is for my International Friends Only:




$15 Gift Card of your choice (International Friends Only)

  7. Amy, I think I speak for many of us when I say we are grateful for YOU! Your creativity, positive attitude and uplifting spirit and, of course, deep appreciation for all things coffee, inspire us deeply. Thank you for sharing YOU with us! One of my goals is to carry on with Jennifer M's kindness campaign by making and sending more 'friend' and 'just because' cards. Buying postage stamps in bulk is now added to my budget *grin* Your giveaway: super sweet! Wishing you a marvelous 2016, filled with abundant blessings in all ways, shapes and forms!
