blog anniversary: 3 years of blogging

To celebrate, I will be sending 3 of you a packet of whimsy to play with: A sweet cello baggie filled with ephemera:
and other goodies like...
like... vintage Whitman cards, an umbrella rubber stamp, a silk rose:
and a play pack with some of my favorite craft embellishments: buttons, flowers, heart rhinestones, self-adhesive pearls, a book plate, a bird stick pin, a vintage-inspired flashcard, a paper clip, ribbon, and that umbrella charm: My simple and sincere way of saying thank you for sticking with me. Leave me a comment on this post for a chance to have one sent to you.
Sign ups now closed.
You can tell others about it if you'd like, but you don't have to either. :) If you're a follower, that's great, too. I'll draw 3 names on May 6th in about a week. :)
Thank you again!

*****Here are the giveaway winners:
First up, Suesue at Lagniappe. Suesue participated long ago in my Red, White, and Blue Tag Swap. I loved the tags she made, and I am so glad that she has still stuck around and has been reading my blog. Thank you, Suesue! :)
Next, Cerri at Little Pink Studio. Cerri and I became friends a few months ago. Remember our "playful/whimsical/girlie/pinks/yellows/possibly shades of white/maybe pastels" swap a few months ago? Look here. It was one of my very favorites! :D
Last but not least, Cristina at Born to Fly. I was not joking around when I said I was stalking Julie's Tiny Book Swap participants. I participated in Cristina's Very Vintage Christmas Ephemera Swap, and after that, I asked her if she would be willing to swap tiny books with me. I was ecstatic that she agreed and sent me one of her pretty books.*****

  6. Love your honesty, your blog AND you, Jessica! I put up a post the other day and I haven't gotten one single commnet on it! Ha-ha! Made me want to stomp my little foot and get my feelings hurt but oh well, *I* liked that post so na-na-na-na-na-na!

    I've always marveled at your multiple little packages! they are always such an eye candy treat! I wouldn't have the supplies or patience to make them all the same.

    I'd love to win your little give away but now I'll be honest by saying that bingo cards don't do anything for me so you can leave that out if I win! Oh that was hard to say. Maybe I shouldn't have!! ;)
