New Year Challenge {Giveaway}

Hi Everyone!

The new year typically brings joy, guilt, and new resolutions.  As usual I have several: exercise regularly, write my 8 grad-school papers, be a better wife, be a better person, remain passionate while being more compassionate, learn lots of new things, post twice a week or more, get 3000 hits in 2011, have 150 followers by July, and have 300 followers by 2012.  The last four resolutions are probably the most important and interesting to you (maybe).  I am going to follow in the footsteps of one of my favorite bloggers and shamelessly bribe/reward my followers this week.  I am going to give out four prizes on Monday January 10.  Prizes will be chosen randomly from these four options: $10 gift card to Joann Fabric, $10 gift card to Michael's, a batch of something delicious, and one of the crafts featured on the blog.

The first prize will go to one of my current 8 public followers.  Thanks for being one of the first people to recognize my genius (wink, wink).  To be entered in the drawing, you need to simply comment on this post, and tell me one of your resolutions for the new year.

The second prize will go to one person who becomes a public follower in the next week.  To be entered in the drawing, you need to click to follow the blog, and comment on any of my other posts.

The third prize will go to the follower who gets the most new public followers in the next 7 days.  You will need to send me an email on Sunday, listing all the followers whom you successfully "recruited" to the blog.

The fourth prize will go to the follower who sends me an email to be a guest poster (you will need to type the post, and attach pictures).  The winner will have their post posted on the blog as well as receive the fourth prize.

Good luck to all my present and future followers!  Thanks again for your support!


  1. Oh, Malory, you are shameless! I resolve to write the three remaining papers for grad school AND to study judiciously with you for that exam. I do watch your blog. I tried the snowflake ornaments, but it didn't work out so well for me. ;(

  2. I'm new to this blog following thing, but I'll do just about anything for one of your delicious desserts!

  3. I am a new follower, please enter me in the giveaway.


Thank you for leaving a comment--I love to hear what you think! I try to respond to any questions within one day.
