My 1 Year Blogiversary & a Giveaway

Shabby Apple
Friends,

Happy Friday! I don't know about you but short work weeks always seem harder than a normal 5 day week. Is it because there's more work to try & fit in? Or that the transition from a long weekend takes a bit to adjust to? Or is it just me?

So remember how I was saying that July was going to be a great month because of various occasions? Well one of those happens to be my 1 year blogiversary, which was yesterday. I can’t believe that it’s been a year already. In some ways, it feels like I’ve been doing this all my life & in other ways, I can’t even imagine how a year has already gone by & how I still feel very much like a newbie. What I know is that by blogging, I’ve made some incredible friends & have constantly been amazed & inspired by this online community.  
 
In order to celebrate, I'm hosting my very first giveaway. So without further ado - the giveaway includes this fantastic book:
Creative Time and Space: Making Room for Making Art
Creative Time and Space: Making Room for Making Art, Rice Freeman-Zachery
                                                                            AND
The next three handmade cards I create. There are 3 ways to enter: 1) Leave a comment below telling me what makes this summer special for you; 2) Follow me on Facebook, Twitter or this blog (check out the sidebar of my blog for these buttons) & leave a comment telling me which one(s) you chose; and 3) Spread the word via your blog, FB or Twitter & leave me a link for the one(s) you used. The contest ends next Thursday, the 14th at midnight & I will announce the winner on the 15th. Good luck!

I just found out that my Intro to Letterpress Class was cancelled for tomorrow due to a broken part. I'm disappointed but choosing to look at it as having a free day. Then, there's brunch on Sunday to meet our friends' newest addition to their family. Have a wonderful weekend.
