Papertrey Ink Giveaway #1: Happy Blogiversary!

I'm celebrating my Blogiversary today! Woo-hoo! In celebration of one year of blogging and also in celebration of the new year, I am offering up some Papertrey Ink goodies to give away to you!

I am continuing the giveaways throughout the whole month of January, each featuring a different type of Papertrey Ink sampler, so keep checking back. 

Here is today's giveaway!


It is set of new Papertrey Ink button samplers and includes Spring, Autumn and Winter buttons! I will ship it free to anywhere in the world. To enter you must leave a comment saying which of these seasons is your favorite and why.

Since this is in honor of my blog's anniversary, I am asking that you must also be a follower to enter. Just click the "Follow" link to the side, if you are not already a follower. Please let me know if you are already a follower. Also, it is not required, but I would so appreciate if you'd like to spread the word about the giveaway too.

I also wanted to add my biggest thanks to all of you who read my blog and comment! I started this blog as a way to share ideas and I hope you've enjoyed a thing or two that I've posted in the last year. I plan to share lots and lots more ideas with you this coming year.

Joining the blogging world and the PTI community has been such an amazing experience. It's been such a blessing to meet and get to know so many of you who are such kind and very talented crafters. It's a true joy to visit your blogs and to see the new creative and inspiring things that you're making and I hope you will stop by to say hi often when you can too!

I will announce a winner to the Giveaway on Monday, January 10th. That same day I will also post a new giveaway. Since the winner is randomly selected, it is possible to win more than once. I won't say how many giveaways there will be, but there will be a few! ;)

Thanks again so much for reading my blog. Hope you enjoy the giveaway!

Have a very sunny day! :)

Congrats and Happy Blogaversary, Monica!

I'd have to say that fall is my favorite season, as we usually have such lovely weather. I don't like it too hot. My family loves doing lots of fun outdoor activities in the fall.

Happy Happy Blogoversary! I love Autumn! When it's just cool enough to wear jeans and a sweatshirt and the air smells crisp with a hint of winter and the apples can be picked off the tree and pumpkins are in season. It's lovely here in Minnesota. I follow your blog in Google Reader, it's wonderful!

Rhonda Emery said...

Jess said...

What an amazing prize, how I would love to win!

I adore, absolutely adore Winter - and wish it were here right now (Australia is in the throes of a hot, yucky, sticky, gross Summer, blech).

Cathy Weber said...

Monica, I have been a follower since the first week and love everything you create. Happy Blogaversary and the chance to win those pretty buttons. I think the Spring set is my favorite. Love those soft and pretty colors.

Amy said...

Happy Blogversary!!!! I became a follower but was surprised that I already wasn't! My favorite season is spring....love the colors, the smell of grass, the flowers, the weather, etc. Thanks for the chance to take home some goodies!

Jayne said...

Congratulations! I have been following your blog for a while now and I love everything you do! These buttons are so cute, and I don't have any Papertrey ink buttons (fingers crossed- the cutest ones are the winter). My favorite season is fall because I love it when it cools down a little bit and the leaves start to change colors. Thanks for the chance to win!

Jen Carter said...

Congrats to you!! What a milestone!! My favorite season is Spring because I love the mild temperatures, love to the trees starting to bud and the flower start to bloom and it means summer is on the way and we're heading out of winter! I have followed your blog in Google Reader for a while already but signed up as a follower just now!

IamDerby said...

Congrats on the blogaversary! I love your blog! I followed in reader but now I am "official". My favorite season is summer because I am a teacher- LOL! I love long days of doing nothing, flip flops, and hanging with my kids.

Denise said...

Happy Blogaversary! I love celebrating things like this that bring us such joy! My favorite season is definitely spring - such a newness to everything. Makes me feel refreshed - and, I {heart} flip flops. ;)

Janet said...

Happy Blogiversary! I've had my blog for over a year, but have been a major slacker.....hoping to breath some life into it soon! My favorite season is fall. Why? (1) I love, love, love hockey & the season starts in October. (2) I love when I can go outside & be comfy in a fleecy sweatshirt - too warm for a jacket, too cold for a t-shirt. Love the milder temperature! Thanks for the chance to win! P.S. I am a follower :)

Jill said...

Congratulations on your one year blogiversary, Monica! I so enjoy coming here and seeing your gorgeous work, and you are a pleasure to chat to on the PTI forum as well! What a sweet idea to do some giveaways! My favorite season is Winter, hands down. Why? Because it means that here in So. Cal. temperatures are nice and cool and we might even have some rain, which I adore. :-)

Smilie girl said...

Happy blogiversary! It's very kind of you to share.
I love summer, but this summer it's been rain, rain, rain. I like how everyone's relaxed and getting a chance to enjoy the water.

Michelle said...

Happy Blogiversary! I love stopping by and seeing all the beautiful eyecandy that you share! So thanks so much for taking the time to post! My favorite season would be spring, I love the rebirth after a long Michigan winter!

Smilie girl said...

I am a follower too, btw.

Isha said...

Congratulations on your Blog Anniversary. Lovely giveaway...Its so difficult to choose the season cos each has its own beauty, but then I would go for Autumn because of the colors and the golden sheen of the Sunlight. Thanks for this amazing giveaway.

Stephanie said...

Happy Blogversary, Monica!!! This is so generous of you!!! I have been a follower since I joined PTI, because I just loved your creations!!! My favorite season would be Autumn. I love those deep reds and oranges!!!

Sue Ann said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO YOU AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL BLOG!! You always make so many beautiful creations. And for that reason and for the fact that my birthday is in the Spring ........ I am going with SPRING when everything is new and bright and beautiful.

steph said...

Happy Blogiversary, Monica! Your blog is a breath of fresh air and full of inspiration each and every time I visit- which is often! I have to say that my favorite season is fall, but my favorite button assortment is winter- love the blues and reds and greens all mixed together!

Jessica said...

That's a really tough question! I love the new flowers of spring, but also the autumn leaves. And winter is fun when it snows (and I don't have to fight through traffic to get to work!)

Oh, and I also love the hot summer weather. So I hope you don't make me pick just one season, I love them all!

Cheryl said...

My favorite is autumn. I love the colors & scents of autumn along with the gorgeous blue skies that you can only see at that time of year. It is also when we celebrate our wedding anniverary and the birth of our daughter.

Congratulations on your blogiversary, and thanks for the chance to win! Those buttons look yummy. :) I loooooove fall, partly because I'm such a baby for the sweltering heat and humidity of July/August, so I'm soooo happy when things start to cool off! Also love the deep richness of autumn colors and leaves, and of course, the holidays that are nearly "right around the corner" by then. :)

Lee Anne said...

Congrats on your blogiversary, Monica!

The only season I don't really care for is summer. I think my favorite might be fall, as I love the changing leaves and the cooler temps.

I became a follower, and I haven't tried PTI buttons yet, so thanks for the chance to win!
