700K Blog Candy & Facebook Fan Freebie


This summer went so fast! I feel like I'm perpetually behind and just can't catch up. I'm a little late with this, but what better time to celebrate than with the release of the new Holiday Mini Catalog! (Click here to check it out!)

Thank you for being a "fan" and for following me either on my blog site or via Facebook. I like to celebrate and thank YOU when we hit milestones and sometime last month, we surpassed 700,000 hits on the blog and 300 fans on Facebook. So, that calls for TWO giveaways! Yay!

I have two sets of the same prize -- a Spice Cake sampler from the new Holiday Mini Catalog! It includes 6x6 pieces of the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper, Spice Cake Buttons, 1 yard of Very Vanilla Velvet Stitched Ribbon, and the Triple Treat Flower stamp (from the big catalog that coordinates so beautifully with the Spice Cake paper).

There are TWO ways to win.
  1. Leave a comment on this post on my blog (go to http://www.juliedavison if you are reading this via email or Facebook). Tell me what product from the Holiday Mini Catalog is at the top of your wish list. (Haven't seen it yet? Click here!)
  2. Visit my Facebook Fan Page and leave a comment on this post on Facebook. Click here to visit now. (Note: You must be a "fan" to leave a comment. Just click "Like" at the top of the page to become a Fan.) On Facebook, tell me what your favorite holiday is -- it doesn't have to be a fall holiday.
On Wednesday, September 7th at Noon, I will select one random winner from the comments left on Facebook and one random winner from the comments left on my blog. Each person will receive the Autumn Spice Sampler for free!

Thanks for playing along -- and thanks for being a "fan"! I truly appreciate the time you take to visit me each day!

Don't forget about my Labor Day Weekend special -- I'm giving away a Christmas Sampler away to everyone who places an order of $50 or more before Tuesday!

For my record more than anything else, here are the latest blog stats, as of today, 9-1-11:
Days Blogging: 1,162 (3+ years!)
# of Posts: 1,058
# of Hits: 714,368
