A big ol' THANK YOU and our first GIVEAWAY!

When Sharon and I hatched the idea for Two Girls Being Crafty at my dining room table last November, we had a few plans and a lot of enthusiasm.

In January of this year, two months into blogging together, we set the goal of gaining 200 followers for the year--and we thought we were aiming high.

But, you, loyal readers, have helped us surpass our goal and have sprung us into four digits... We now have over 1,000 crafty followers!  I was SO happy I took a screen shot!

We are SO stoked to know that there are people out there reading our babble about crocheting this and spray painting that, mod podge here and fabric there.  And commenting, too.  We LOVE comments (like all bloggers do)!

To officially say "thank you" we're having a small giveaway...  We'll send one lucky reader the supplies to make a patterned paper wreath of their own:  A wreath form, glue sticks, lovely paper and an embellishment.


Here's what you have to do to win:

1. Leave a comment on this post.
2. That's it.
3. Seriously, that's it.  Say anything!

If you're not a follower already, we'd love to have you join in the fun, though it's not a requirement.  We're not daily bloggers, but we strive to make sure our content is of the highest quality and that it inspires you!

P.S. PLEASE make sure we have a way to contact you.  If your blogger profile doesn't contain your email address, please leave your address in the comment form so we can contact you if you're the winner!

 
Check out the Patterned Paper Wreath Tutorial if you haven't before.  It's the project that started this whole blog!















This is the Patterned Paper Wreath Remix.  Same materials, same method, different results.  Whatever floats your boat or finds your lost remote (if you can tell me what song that comes from without googling it I will be majorly impressed!)











This giveaway closes midnight E.S.T. on Friday, August 12th.  Winner will be chosen by Random.org.  Due to shipping costs, this giveaway is open to U.S. residents only--sorry!
