Have you ever searched around blogland? There really are some incredible things waiting out there for you. But I have learned that you truly have to be in it for the right reasons.
Me, I blog for the love of writing, and connecting with others, and of course to share creativity at times, and also in part to share pieces of my business. Every now and then there are also some amazing giveaways. I mean, if you truly look around, there is a giveaway every.single.day.
I just choose the ones that truly mean something to me, or the ones where I could really use that item, but not necessarily afford it myself. Every now and then I have my moments of oh darn, I wanted that. Lately, I have realized, that if I stick with "my plan" I just mentioned, it does just come around. Earlier this summer I won an address stamp, which I love, from Tip Junkie and Chaotic Creations by Kristen.
That same week I won a t-shirt from Shey B, who I can only hope to have a camera strap from when I get the "macdaddy" camera I have been longing.
And just last night, I received the e-mail from Kim at Today's Creative Blog that will probably continue to make me giddy for the rest of the week - I won a custom 12x12 piece from Modern Bird Studios. I mean seriously, these people are amazing. Kim contacted me last night, I emailed her my info and boom, Megan at Modern Bird and I have already been emailing. I LOVE it!
Today is no exception. I forever try to win gorgeous pieces of Lisa Leonard's, it's something I have yet to conquer. She has a new necklace out and she is giving two away. This necklace is titled, 'through the lens' - this is what I wrote as my entry:
oh my goodness what an amazingly super fun and adorable giveaway. through my lens i see pieces of life i long to capture and hold in an instant. i see moments i want to hold onto forever. i see instances i wish i knew how to capture better with one simple click. and of course, sometimes through my lens i wish i could see more clearly….
now go find yourself some goodies....
