No, I’m not pregnant, that’s not my announcement, or my giveaway! Ha. Keep reading…

I like before and afters, numbers, looking back at what was happening on this exact day however many years ago. I have lots of posts like this already…where I recount something that happened however long ago. This post…well, this was suppose to be a 2 year blogiversary post, but I missed it. Two years ago on April 6th, not April 8th, I wrote my first blog post. You can check it out if you want.

It’s been very rewarding for me to keep this blog going, and very challenging. My original plan was to blog every other day. Eeek. That’s a lot of blogging. That was also a time when I had two tiny babies, not two wild toddlers ruling my life with gusto and hilarity. But here I am, still blogging away and loving it when I can find the time. And, instead of looking back at what I’ve written and how far we’ve come, blahblahblahblah (you’ve already read all that before), I thought I’d announce something new!

I’ve started an Etsy store! At the moment I’m selling digital files for invitations, save the dates, and other paper goods. You order, I customize, send you the file, you print. Easy enough? Check it out here: www.etsy.com/shop/TheHeartOfUs (and there’s a link at the top of the page).

Here’s the giveaway part of the post, and it’s two parts! Follow the instructions below to be entered to win a $20 gift certificate to Little & Mighty, Babypage, or Etsy (your choice) and to get 20% off your first order on my Etsy store (can be for a custom order).

  1. Subscribe by email to my blog (if you’re already a subscriber, don’t worry, you can skip this step. If you’re not subscribed already, scroll down to the bottom of this page and enter your email address.)
  2. Leave a comment on any of my blog posts.
  3. Follow the blog on at least one social media outlet (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest, links on the right hand side of this page, one day I’ll get on the Snapchat train, today is not that day.)
  4. Complete steps one and two no later than 11:00 PM on Monday, April 11th (MST).

Easy enough, right?
