My 200th post, with prizes!

Cake Pops - Baby ShowerIt's hard to believe I've been blogging for more than two years now. It's even harder to believe that this is my 200th post! I didn't start off really thinking too much about the writing, just sharing my crafts and ideas.

Now I realize just how much hard work goes into a great blog. It's so much more than what you see on the surface!!! Great writing is part of it, as well as photography, but even more important is to be yourself, and develop your own style. Your blog is the universe the way you see it, and your chance to express that. I feel so lucky to be a part of it, and to have found such great friends along the way!


So, enough with the chatter, what's up for grabs - you ask? It'll have to stay a mystery until after the 25th - because I've caught Ravelympic fever! Trust me though, the goods will be good. Seriously good. There will definitely be cupcake pops!

To win, leave a comment on this post (by Sep. 6th 2008,) and I'll use a random number generator (don't we love/hate those suckers?!?!?) to pick a handful of winners. The more comments I get, the more prizes will be shared, so feel free to share the linky-love with your friends. You can only enter once, though. Please play nice!

Stay tuned for prize updates - after the 25th! Also, I'm going to try and make sure all the winners get something that makes them happy, but I can't promise everyone will get the exact gifty they have their greedy green eyes on! Drool on!

  5. Congrats on your 200th post and on the Ravelympics medal! I just chanced upon your site from another sewing list site. I am always hunting around for fun new blogs that will inspire me to try my hand at a new project or skill. I must say, you are very inspiring! Thank you for sharing. Now I am off to get some of those yummy looking cupcake pops. :c)

  6. Congrats on making it to the 200th post! You are so right about all the hard work that goes into a great blog... but it's so rewarding, isn't it? Plus you have a wonderful record of your past 2 years of creativity.

    And you know I've been drooling over your cupcake pops for months, so, although I can't imagine how you would get them safely to me, count me in for the draw!

    I came over from your post about the contest on Ravelry, and as I was having a look around, I happened upon your post about your peanut butter gelato. I have tried quite a few things with my ice cream maker, but had never thought of that one! You made it sound so delicious that now I definitely have to give it a try! I see some peanut butter ice cream experiments in my future... Thanks for the idea!
