2 Year Blog Anniversary GIVEAWAY

Oh hello my blog friends,

It's 2 years ago today that I started my blog & it has quickly become one of my favorite things. To celebrate I am having a little GIVEAWAY of some of my other favorite things.

Now, don't get your hopes up for gold and jewels. Just the simple pleasures in life that make me happy.

What might you expect in this glorious package?

Well, there might just be a hand tie dyed item by the Carter children. Possibly a Holga print or a book. And what I am maybe most famous for a MIX CD of the top favorites of Liv Carter (seriously well known for my mix CD's. We may not have the same taste in music but I'll bet you'll dig the mix), and MORE surprises.

So, what do you need to do?

Just leave a comment right here- up until Sunday at midnight & I'll pick a number at random- winner announced Monday. It's an excellent time to delurk & let me know you're out there!

Thanks for 2 great years and for those tried and true friends that always comment. I appreciate you all!

Dad said...

I don't want you to feel obligated to choose me at random, just because I'm your father. Just because I blessed you with artistic genes and raised you to be the wonderful creative person you are, providing 27 years of hugs and introducing you to dark chocolate-covered pretzels. No, don't feel any obligation. If I'm not chosen, I'll be alright. Really, I'll be fine. Don't worry about me. I'm just your father. I'll get over it. I'm used to disappointment.

Olivia,
When we moved, I missed you. We had so much fun in Primary. And I love all the fun things you do with your kids. And the ideas that you put up (the sidewalk chalk that is paint is so cool! And tie dye shirts, how fun, and what a great idea to entertain the kids!). Thanks for always posting the funnest things, and reminding me to enjoy the simple things in life!
Kristie Roberts
P.S. I would love to invite you to my blog, as it is private. Send me your email, roberkann@gmail.com.

brooke said...

I agree with Lindsay... you're so creative, I'm a little green with envy. However, I comment anyway because sometimes I might have something interesting to say.

M said...

Liv, I love your blog. Since starting my blog, I have tried to model it after yours a little, putting in short posts about fun stuff that I've seen, done, and like/want. I'm also very jealous of all the comments you always get b/c I get so few. :)
