Holy 700 followers- giveaway time!!

Hey everyone!!  I couldn't believe when I looked over at the followers section on my sidebar, and saw that I have 701 of them!!  I don't really push the whole following thing, and I don't actually pay attention to it much either!  Never in a million years would I have ever thought that I would have over 700 followers of my blog, and it is really flattering.  Humbling.  And I am a little bit awestruck by it.

This whole crafting industry has really made my heart happy.  I love all the amazing people out there who share in this wonderful hobby with me.  I love having "friends" all over the world, and I really hope to be able to make it to another industry show someday so I can meet even more of you in person.  I love all the amazing manufacturers out there, who create this fabulous product that I get to use day in and day out.  Whether I get it via a design team, or I purchase it...I love it all the same.

So, since I am being all sappy...I figured a giveaway would be in order too!!  How about one of every item from all THREE of the latest Glitz Design collections:
 Pretty awesome giveaway, huh?!!  So, how do you go about winning this lovely package?  It is easy peasy!

1.  Since this post is all about Followers...make sure you are a follower of my blog.
2.  Leave me a comment on THIS post telling me what you like most about my blog.  {If you aren't a frequent visitor, then you can just tell me what you like most about the giveaway! Hopefully you will become a more frequent visitor now! Tee hee!}

The comments will stay open until 11:59pm MST on July 3rd.  Since July 4th is a major celebration day for my country, I will post the winner in celebration on July 4th at 12:00pm MST.  All are eligible to win this prize, including international entrants.

Please only leave ONE comment on this post in order to be eligible for the prize.  Multiple comments will be deleted, and not eligible to win.

And once again...thank you for coming along with me on this crafty journey!!  I am happy to have you by my side!!

Until later,
~Lea L.

  19. I have a feeling you're about to gain some more 'official followers' like me! I've been following you in my Google Reader, but I just officially became a follower to join your fabulous giveaway contest. ;-)

    Lea, I admire your wonderful talent in card making. I always find myself sitting to just study your creations, to see how you did that, and try to learn and improve my own skills. I guess you could call me an understudy, of sorts!

    I'm not surprised at all that you have at least 700 followers. With the sweet inspiration you provide here so consistently, I'm surprised it's not so much more than that. ;-)

    Congrats!! And thanks for sharing your talents here!

  62. Although I am not on your list of followers, you are on my favorites list and I visit your blog several times a week. Love looking at all your projects.

    What I like about the blog candy is all the coordinating papers and embellishments. A lot of my time in creation is spent trying to match papers and embellishments.

    Having these word greatly cut down on my time spent craft each creation.
