Time for a HUGE give-a-way!!! Almost 1000 Follower Celebration! Lots o' BLOG CANDY!

Hello Crafty Friends,
What does 1,000 mean to you?
Do you think of money? How about the number of texts you send every month? Maybe the number of crafty projects you have made? 1,000 means something different to me!

Can you believe I have almost reached that milestone of 1,000 followers? Both Georgiana at Carson's Creations, and I are super excited to offer this unique giveaway since we are sharing this special celebration together. 

We have decided to team up again as we have many times in the past. We have planned hops, challenges, design teams, and shared many days supporting each other's crafty addictions. This time we want to celebrate 1,000 followers with some crafting goodies. Once we each reach 1,000 followers (we need less than 10 followers each), we will pick two lucky people for prizes. I will pick a winner who will receive a prize pack from me and a prize pack from Georgiana. Georgiana will pick a winner and her winner will receive a prize pack from her and one from me!   That means two people will get two prize packs!

If you are the winner from my blog you will win this from me and this from Georgiana:

 If you are the winner from Georgiana's blog then you will win this from Georgiana and this from me:

 Whoot Whoot!! We are so excited to be having such a great celebration!

1. This giveaway will require you to be a follower of both our crafty blogs. 
2. You must leave a comment on both our sites. Let us know what you like about our sites. Be sure to leave your contact information, so we can notify you if you win. 
3. You must post on your site, FB, Twitter, or any other social media and then come back to share that you have spread the word.

4. Answer the following question...What does 1,000 mean to you?

Once we both reach 1,000 followers, the winners will be randomly selected and announced on both our sites. 
** Due to the high cost of shipping I can only ship within the US. If you are international/Canada and would like to pay the shipping, please feel free to enter** 
Hope you will help us celebrate this special milestone!
Stay Creative,
 Carri and Georgiana
