$500.00 Cash Giveaway 3 Year Blogiversary


It’s been 3 years.

Time to celebrate and take a look back.

I’ve never had a “blogiversary” before.  The 1st year seemed rather pre-mature, the 2nd year slipped by with out me noticing, so I thought I would gather some of my favorite blog friends for the 3rd year and ask them to join me in offering our followers this incredible “$500.00 Cash Giveaway”!

Redhead Can Decorate 3 Year Blogiversary $500 Giveaway


Redhead Can Decorate & her Mom | A little Claireification | From Valerie’s Kitchen | Domestically Speaking | Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza | Debbiedoo’s | Little Miss Celebration | Glitter Glue & Paint | Setting For Four | Yesterday On Tuesday | I Should be Mopping the Floor | What Meegan Makes | Cupcakes and Crinoline | Nibbles by Nic | Tastes of Lizzy T | Cottage at the Crossroads | Cynthia Weber Design | Decor Adventures The Coconut Head’s Survival Guide | My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia Chef Ron Lock | Top This Top That | Shabby Art Boutique | Create and Babble | Jo Jo and Eloise | Cooking with Curls

Please join me in thanking all of these very generous bloggers that helped make this happen.  After all, I wouldn’t have been able to give away $500.00 on my own.  That would be cray cray.

You may have noticed my Mom decided to join us, too.

My Mom doesn’t have a blog, but she is very excited for me and my blogging success.  I was thrilled when she offered to contribute and be a part of this wonderful celebration.

Thanks, Mom!

Before we get to the giveaway, I wanted to get a little mushy with you, and then I thought I would throw in a few of my most favorite projects in case you missed them.

First the mushy stuff.

Blogging has changed my life. grows larger and more successful every day.  I closely follow my statistics, and every day I gain more and more wonderful followers.  My page views have also increased dramatically.  It still SHOCKS me that all of you lovely folks want to learn from me.

Blogging has become a “more than full time” position for me.  It is a lot of hard work, however I am now earning an income and having to file taxes!  I’m working with large brands,  being featured in national magazines (one more coming up any day now), and even have the privilege to work with celebrity Chefs Emeril Lagasse & Laura Vitale.

 I feel darn blessed that when this fell on my lap, I was able to take it and run with it.  I want this to be an example to my children and other folks that your passions can turn into a career.

I can honestly say that I feel complete inside.  I have never felt more satisfied in all avenues of my life.

So, thank you.  Thank you to you for being here, my blog friends for helping me along the way, and most of all to my amazing family for all of their support (especially Rick).

Here’s a look back…enjoy!
