Basic Grey RAK!





Because I love my blog readers so much I want to celebrate 100 posts and 10,000 hits to Glue and Popsicle Sticks. This whole blog thing started as, "oh I need a blog to apply for a design team?" And has turned into so much more. I've made friendships, kept in touch with people who live far away as well as linked important information and resources for friends and family. It also helps a ton for trying to remember when things have happened in our life so when I sit down to scrapbook, I have a ready made timeline. So to celebrate I have a few extra things that I want to give away to one lucky blog reader. All you need to do is leave me a comment with a way to reach you if you win. Feel free to say hi, what your favorite thing about blogging is or just give me free stuff, lol! I enjoy reading comments and checking out your blogs when you stop by. So if this is your first time here, feel free to grab a cup off coffee and stay awhile! And if you are a regular thank you for reading and checking in, thank you very much!
I'll leave this contest open till Saturday at midnight, EST. I'll post the winner on Sunday, good luck!
