My One Year Blogiversary and a Giveaway!

Today I am celebrating one year of blogging.  I must say it has been way more than I ever imagined.  I have met so many wonderful blogging friends and look forward to reading your blogs daily.  Thanks for leaving me comments and sending me thoughtful emails.  They make my day.  And for my readers who don’t have their own blog, thanks for reading too!

In order to celebrate, I am having my first giveaway.  Now let me first tell you, that since blogging one year ago, I have won a Gussy bag, a hand stamped necklace from LaBella Jewels, dangling pearl earrings from The Vintage Pearl, a ROAD ID and Basic H organic cleaning concentrate.  I am not one to win anything, so imagine the surprise when I won these great giveaways.  So please don’t be shy, enter to win.

Melissa from Kaufman’s Cottage has graciously offered to give away one of her personally made cards along with a $5 gift card to Starbucks.  I have heard that the Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back!  Now that the cooler fall days are on their way, wouldn’t it be nice to grab a Starbucks and head to the beach?  That is what I would love to do.  Here is the card that Melissa is giving away:

Being Refined Blog 2010Being Refined Open 2010Isn’t it fabulous?  Thanks Melissa! 

You may enter to win three ways:

1- Follow me on Google Friend Connect.  If you are already a follower, let me know.

2- Leave a comment telling me what you would get with the Starbucks gift card. 

3- Visit Melissa at Kaufman's Cottage and say hello. Be sure to check out her autumn set under “For Sale”.

Please leave a separate comment for each entry, along with your email.  A winner will be chosen using Random.org on Friday, September 17th.

Check back throughout the week for more giveaways.  Thanks for celebrating with me!  Happy Monday :)

  32. Okay, I don't want to shock anyone, but can you believe I have never been to a Starbucks or had their coffee? I like coffee and we have one within 30 minutes from us, so I really have no excuse. Let's just say I have no clue which coffee I would get and would need recommendations. :)
