Happy “Blogiversary” to Me Giveaway

Hello, Friends!

Well, it’s been a busy month…so busy, in fact, that I forgot all about the fact that the month of January is my “Blogiversary!”  I started this blog in January 2013, and to those of you who have traveled along with me, I want to say thanks….and what better way to say thanks than with a little Happy Blogiversary to Me Giveaway?  Right?

So, I have a gently used Zutter Bow-it-All Tool that needs a new home.  (I got the 2.0 version for Christmas.)  It is in great condition, still has the pretty pink zippered storage pouch, the sharp pink scissors in their own storage pouch,  and the gently thumbed instruction manual.  Are you interested?  If you are a regular on this blog, you know how much I love this nifty tool, and how it transformed me from a bow-challenged crafter to a bow-tying diva.

zutterSo, what do you have to do to win this fabulous piece of equipment?  It’s simple.  If you are a follower, simply leave me a comment below, and you are in.  If you are not a follower, then you can subscribe using either the subscription box or the Blog lovin’ box in the upper right hand corner of my side bar.  If you want to “like” Kathy by Design on Facebook, just click on this link and click the like button.  I also have a lot of fun creative ideas on Pinterest.

And what good is a ribbon tying tool without ribbon?  So I will tuck in a bunch of yummy ribbons and you can practice your bow tying skills until your fingers fall off!  LOL

Because of the cost of international shipping, this prize is only available for my US followers. BUT I have a separate giveaway just for my sweet international friends. When I told Bonnie Garby, owner of Really Reasonable Ribbon, that I was giving away a Bow-it-All Tool, she jumped right in and offered a $10 gift certificate to Really Reasonable Ribbon for my international friends.  Isn’t she the best?  I’m so happy that I’ll have a way to say thanks to my international followers now!  Hooray!

I’ll choose a winner on January 31st, and post the winner here on Feb 1st.  Just so you know, I am in the midst of a studio purge…so there will likely be more giveaways on the near horizon.  You’ll definitely want to keep in touch.

Again, thank you for 2 amazing years.  I have had so much stinkin’ fun with this blog, and met so many incredible friends, inspiring artists and kind people through this venture.  It’s very humbling to me to be able to share with you here, and you have no idea how much you have encouraged me along the way.  Crafty people are the best people in the world!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Your generosity is amazing! Happy anniversary! Wow! 2 years! Kathy, please do not include me in the draw, as I am already a lucky recipient of your generous blog purge. I just need you to come here and help ME purge! I’m just here to say I’ve recently become a follower, basically because I hit on follower buttons before and never saw anything. I have your blog delivered via e-mail, and I’m so happy, so I just had to tell you I’m enjoying my periodic breath of fresh air! Good luck to all the entrants! You are following one talented, thoughtful lady!

    Congrats! I have yet to start a blog, so you’re an inspiration. You’re such a sweetheart to share such a nice giveaway! I’m definitely all thumbs with lopsided bows yet… who knows maybe I’ll get some help. : )

  18. Heather Bridson

    Happy Blogiversary!!!! I am so horrid at bow tying…. this would be great to help me!!! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  19. Sharon aka celticrafter

    I am a recent follower of your blog, but have enjoyed reading all your past posts. I would love to win the bow maker but alas I am a northern neighbour “across the border”! However, the gift certificate would be OK too as I have ordered several times from Really Reasonable ribbon – great service and selection.
    Happy Blogiversary!!!!

    Hi Kathy,
    There are some weeks that I subscribe to your newsletters, as I found out the papers “Heartfelt cretations,” and I found out what you were doing great with his papers.
    Then I interressée to your blog and saw your work, your passion, I just see every day what you have done it again … Because I love, love …
    Good blogiversary, and congratulations …
    Unfortunately, if I were to win this excessiment which is rare, it will not be your great tool because I live in Belgium.
    Too bad, Ariane
