blogoversary // giveaways #5 & #6

One year ago today I began my blogging journey. I really had no idea what I was getting my self into. I had no concept of just how much I would learn about blogging and photography. And then there were all of you...I never thought that this many people would actually take the time out of their day to read what I have to say, but you lovely people have proved me wrong, and for that I am so, so grateful. I appreciate every one of you, from those who were among my very first followers to the new followers, and your sweet comments. You all make my day and are why I continue to blog. Thank you so sticking with me.
I am so, so excited to see what another year will bring!

To celebrate, I decided to put our last two September giveaways in one post. 

Our fifth giveaway is sponsored by:

Stephanie 02: Inspired Greetings and Designs
// etsy //

Stephanie's shop is chock full of autumn colors this month which I {obviously} like since I am such a lover of all things fall. Her lovely shop is full of greeting cards and fabric earrings, hair clips, brooches, and more. I enjoyed reading about her on her profile and the Scripture verses that she wrote there. Take the time to read it, and also to look at her shop! Here are a few of my favorite items:

Summer Bunting Flag Banner Sewn Greeting Card with Celebrate Embossed Stamp, Blank, Pink Brown, Glitter Dandelion Painted Greeting Card, Mint Brown Chocolate Polka Dots, Blank Inside, Summer, Make a Wish
                                    {listing}                                                             {listing}

Isn't that bunting just perfect? And many childhood memories!

ZEBRA Print Fabric Flower Hair Clip, Black and White, Black Rhinestone Gem, Hair Flower, Wedding, Bridesmaids Gift, Wild, hipster trendy  EGGPLANT Bobby Pins, Fabric Flower Purple Plum Fall Wedding, Flower Girl Hair Beaded Bobbies, Aubergine Bridesmaids
                                         {listing}                                                            {listing}

Champagne Fabric Flower Hair Clip with Lace, Champagne Satin Wedding Bridal Party Bridesmaids Gift, Romantic Fabric Flower Earring Gift Set Pack of 8 Pairs, Christmas Gift for Her, Small fabric Earrings, Sale Save
                                         {listing}                                                          {listing}

I can't decide whether I like the lace, the color, or the center bead the best!
You can buy Stephanie's earrings in sets of one, four, or eight pairs. She has so many colors to choose from, I don't know how anyone ever decides.

And now, Stephanie has kindly offered to send one of your lucky ducks:

Fall Autumn Painted Dandelions Greeting Card Set of 3, Kraft Card, Blank Inside, Fall Colors, Art Cards, Original ooak

This set of three painted Dandelion Cards! 
The fall colors are simply splendid, in my opinion.
