2nd Blogaversary Give Away Sign Up.....

Exciting things are happening around the Quill. We are anticipating the birth of our first granddaughter who is due in three weeks, today is Darling Daughters 21st Birthday, and Sunday was the anniversary date of my second year of blogging! I thought I would celebrate with a little give away.

I have been totally amazed at all the wonderful people I have come in contact with through blogging. It is fun to look back and see how my blog has evolved over such a short period of time. I truly do enjoy meeting, sharing with, learning from, and being inspired by other bloggers. Thank you for visiting and for your kind comments. I treasure each and every one of you.
Before we get to the give away I wanted to share another piece of exciting news...coming soon in the very near future to a blog near you, I will celebrate the grand opening of a boutique here at Quill Cottage to sell my artwork. So many of you kind souls have expressed interest in my work and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Here is where I need your help, what to name the boutique? I thought of Quill Cottage Creations or The Boutique at Quill Cottage, but I am not so sure about either. What would you suggest? It needs to be something that is identifiable with me. I would really love to have your input. I will be sharing more about this in another post, on to the give away...I would like to offer a couple of my most recent projects as prizes in this give away, the Nest Assemblage.... and Nature Journal... from my last post. Visit here to see journal page details. Along with each of these I will include an assorted original ephemera pack for creating your own art.

To sign up for the give away just leave a comment on this post, comments will be open until Sunday, August 23, 2009 and the winners will be announced on Monday, August 24, 2009. You do not have to have a blog to enter, anyone is welcome to enter, and there are no shipping restrictions.

I hope you all find something to celebrate in your day today!

Blessings,
Miss Sandy

Congrats on your 2nd anniversary of blogging Sandy. You were the inspiration behind me beginning a blog and I will always be grateful for your friendship. Happy Birthday wishes to your daughter; happy 21! And I know you are all so excited to welcome this precious little girl into the world. My 4th great niece was born last week - we are grateful that she is healthy. Hope you are having a great week. I am still thinking about a name for your shop.

Congratulations on all the wonderful things happening in your life! I am so excited that you're going to sell your beautiful work! What a gift you have of making everything lovely!

As for names, why don't you just call it Quill Cottage just like your blog? Or maybe Creations at Quill Cottage? Or maybe the most fabulous, beautiful, magnificent stuff ever shop?

I'm so happy for you and can't wait to see what's for sale. Self control...I have self control.

Congratulations and please count me in (and please draw my name too)

Happy Birthday to you daughter! And happy blogoversary! How exciting to have a grandchild on the way. We just had the first wedding among our children last week, so I look forward to grandchildren in the next few years.

Your creations are so lovely and thoughtful.

I would love to enter your generous giveaway and can now daydream that I will be the winner...I'm following your blog now and I hope you'll come and see me at www.indulgeyourshelf.blogspot.com, too!

I found your blog just as you were sharing these beautiful art pieces...and now you will give them away? I am amazed and would be thrilled. Can't wait to see your new shop...I like Quill Cottage, not sure about the word boutique. I think of clothes. I love your art! Thanks for such a sweet giveaway!

Linda said...

Congratulations on all of these blessed events!! :) And such lovely items you're featuring in the giveaway.

I can't really think of any special name for your shop - my creativity has been all taken up by writing this week, and the thoughts of school beginning. :)

LindaSonia said...

Your creations are absolutely lovely. Can't wait to see your boutique open.

Count me in for the awesome giveaway. Thank you.

Dear Miss Sandy,
I enjoyed seeming your interpretation of Dawn's tutorials, they are so lovely. I do love birds and we are fortunate to be able to feed them with our garden and feeders. I've been enjoying your blog for a while now; congratulations on your second anniversary and all the wonderful blessing events in your life!

Becky K. said...

I can see it now, there you are all cuddled up with a sweet granddaughter in wintertime. You are looking into her eyes and she is gazing into yours...knowing that this is one person who she can trust no matter what...Grandma's are sooooo special! Even now, My Chelsea is off on an overnight trip with both of her Grandmothers. They will have a marvelous time!

Congratulations on this impending delight!

Your giveaway looks delightful.

I have no current suggestions for naming your Boutique but am very sure that you will come up with something very lovely. If anything comes to mind, I'll pop back over.

Blessings,
Becky K.

Dear Miss Sandy,

Although we've never met, you have become one of my special "blog friends". I try to visit daily. You are a real inspiration to me and have kindled a love of vintage that is beginning to appear in my card making.

Congratulations on all the happy events and I wish you all the success in the world in your new venture.

Does Quill Cottage Treasures (or Delights) sound like a good name to you?

Thanks so much for all the beauty and loveliness you have shared us all through your delightful blog. We are all the richer for it.

May God Himself bless you abundantly.

Yippee!!! You are opening a boutique. That just makes my day! or should I say my night as it is already night. Thank you! Thank you!
Congratulations on having this blog for two years..what an achievement and what a blessing you have been to me and I am sure to many others. Your blog was the first I really started with. it is what got me into the "blogworld".
I appreciate your doing a giveaway! I definitely would like to be part of that. Thanks for considering those of us who do not have blogs...yet (I can see I am becoming more hopeful!).
Sandy may the good Lord continue to guide you as you continue with your blog and may it bring you as much joy as it does us.
I have to ponder more on the name for the boutique. I kind of like "Quill Cottage Creations"

2 years of blogging! Happy blogversary to you Miss Sandy. I do hope that there are many happy years at Quill Cottage to come. Not in the least place because I so much like your blog and your creations: so I like the idea of a shop very much. I think it is good to relate the blog and the boutique by name, it makes searching so much easier, so I like your suggestions: Quill Cottage boutique even better than Quill Cottage creations, as the latter suggests that you only sell your own creations, but you might as well sell (vintage) supplies or other lovelies in due course.
Congrats to your daughter and congrats to all who are awaiting your first grand daughter. Enjoy this happy time. Thanks for giving away such lovely prizes and thanks even more for being my blogfriend! Have a lovely day!

Barb T. said...

Although I just purchased the nature journal tutorial and am assembling materials, I'd love to have a prototype from the master!

This is so exciting! Almost as good as a new baby, which, of course, any new venture is. Many, many good wishes with it. Your work is amazing and I know that it will be a blessing to so many. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to partake. Quill Cottage Creations sounds very good to me. Now I'm wondering what you did choose.
