150th post & a giveaway... or three!!

I'm a little tired today, so you'll have to forgive me if I keep this post short and sweet.  I woke up at 3am and couldn't get back to sleep.  I'm ever so grateful that it's Friday.  That means daddy will come home early today, and tomorrow I'll be able to get a little extra rest.  My husband always makes pancakes on Saturdays for the boys and lets me sleep in!  =)

I started this blog a little over two years ago and I'm just now reaching my 150th post.  So, yeah, it's taken me a while to get to this point.  I have always tried to keep this blog a true reflection of myself.  Meaning that I don't necessarily share everything here, but what I do share, I do so with honesty.  Sometimes that means not sharing much at all.  I'm an introvert by nature and most of the time I work through my thoughts and feelings internally.  But I do enjoy blogging and I wanted to mark this particular milestone by sharing something fun with you!  

How do three giveaways sound?

{Bundle A - features an assortment of products from Studio Calico and an Addy Sentiment Stamp}

{Bundle B - features an assortment of products from Studio Calico and a journaling stamp}

{Bundle C - features an assortment of products from Studio Calico, as well as some miscellaneous products from my own stash, and a journaling stamp from Prima}

Would you like to win one of these bundles of scrapbooking goodness?  Leave a comment telling me what you plan on doing this weekend (or what you did this weekend).  Also, be sure to include your email address in the comments so that I can contact you if you win.  If you have a preference, or order of preference, for the giveaway please indicate that in your comment too.  I'll leave the comments open until Wednesday, October 26th, 11:59 pm PST. The winner will be announced on Thursday and will be contacted shortly thereafter.  And my apologies to any international readers, but this giveaway is only open to residents of the U.S.
