A Blogaversary Giveaway


Oh my! Where do I even begin? This past weekend marked the one-year anniversary of One Fine Day.  I promise I won't get overly sappy, but there's gobs to be grateful for -- especially you! It all started with this inaugural post. And since that lonely Friday at Lil' Puna, the header and fonts weren't the only things that changed -- I'm different as well. Just as I'd hoped, this was exactly the creative outlet I so desperately craved. I've created a forum to express myself, and in the process a tight-knit blog community has evolved. It's given me the opportunity to converse and connect with other creative types who've inspired me to dream a little bigger. I'm not sure what's in store for dear ol' bloggie, but I'm forever thankful for your support. You stop by often, occasionally comment, and drop a line via email -- you've been a snazzy and sparkly support system. From the bottom of my heart, thank you! 

To show my appreciation, I thought I'd host a little giveaway. Eek, I just knew you'd be excited! What? You say your enthusiasm is through-the-roof. That's amazing, because I feel the same way. I'm squealing with giddy delight -- Sophia Grace and Rosie style. The blogaversary giveaway is just SO GOOD! Haven't a clue what I'm talking about? Watch this clip and stat. Stat means now!

The "A-List": Baggu Bag / Pom-Pom Flower Pins (1, 2) / Stationery (1, 2, 3) / Pens / Nail Polish / Washi Tape / Coffee
Now, back to the giveaway... Dorothy Parker once quipped, "I've never been a millionaire, but I just know I'd be darling at it." My sentiments exactly. I wish I was a millionaire, so I could gift each of my readers with something fabulous to say "Thanks." While I'm no Oprah, this is a chance for me to give away some of my favorite things -- just a few items that make the "A-List." Five lucky readers will win a Type-A(shley) gift box filled with all sorts of amazingness like a Baggu bag, pom-pom flower pin, oodles of stationery, nail polish, pens, washi tape, and a cup of coffee (my treat!). These are all little things that make this gal incredibly happy!

ANF

  19. I love that you have stayed true to you! You never stray from polka dots, Kate Spade illustrations, or your reality TV lurve. It's so easy to feel the love you have for doing this, and for that - I give two snaps in a z-formation!

    ReplyDelete

  32. Topics I would like to see discussed...

    Recipes (food & drink)
    Sales - good deals
    giveaways :-D
    places/attractions to visit near you

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hmmm now as far as feedback goes...

    I always find reading about your day-to-day very interesting! It's funny how ordinary everyday life can seem too normal or ho-hum to the person living it, but it's really interesting to anyone else (because it's new to us). Does that make sense?

    What do you do when you're not blogging? What is your cleaning regimen? What are your favorite recipes? Do you have a job? What are you currently reading? I hope one of those questions inspires you! :)
