1 Year Anniversary: International Giveaway


Exactly one year ago I wrote my very first blog post. I admit that I posted, and soon after that deleted, one or two blog posts before that, but after that it felt really natural and I always knew what I wanted to write about next. Somehow I never really pondered over the question:"What do I want this blog to be about?".

A lot has happened though: the layout's been changed completely, some topics have changed, disappeared or been added and I'm sure a lot more will change this year.

To kickstart this next year and to thank you all for reading and commenting and some of you for having wonderful blogs yourself, I arranged this giveaway.

The lovely Lily from my favorite Etsy shop Chouettes has been kind enough to offer a few owl goodies to give to one of you.

You get to pick one of these seven items below. Go on take a look!

7. Cute Cameo Hairpin

And the winner will also receive this amazing owl necklace.

So that's 1 adorable necklace and 1 matching item of your choice!

This is an international giveaway
so everyone can join:)

All you need to do is comment with the number of the item you'd love to win along with the necklace.

But there are lots of extra entries to be earned:

+ 2 if you're a follower
+ 2 if you heart Lily's shop Chouettes
+ 1 (each) if you tweet about this, friend me on facebook and/or like me on facebook
+ 3 if you blog about this giveaway
+ 3 (each) if you grab one or more of my banners, I made a whole bunch of new ones. Check 'em out here or click the link in the right sidebar.

To make this easier on you and me please leave all entries in ONE comment in which you state how many extra entries you've earned and how.

And don't forget to leave a way for me to find you if you're the winner;)

Winner will be announced on Saterday the 13th of November.

Good luck and thanks for joining!
