Hello there! Many apologies for leaving you for so long! This Blog-i-versary thing is turning out to be a month-long celebration (but who's complaining?not me!) I had to step out to head down to the Southern Women's Show to hang out with the girls from Where Women Create and get a little crafty with some southern women!
Today I want to say thank you to all of the Sweetheart Sponsors of this blog. You all took a chance on this blog from the very beginning and I couldn't be more grateful. You know that there is a whole community of fabulous, intelligent, creative, caring, clever women (and a few guys…I think) out there that stop by this little corner of the world to check in and want to see what's going on here. You believed, from the get-go that what I had to say here was relevant and you wanted to be part of it.
Ok, some of you are my friends and didn't have a choice.
But still, you all offer something beautiful and clever and intelligent and brave and I am so glad that folks can connect to you here. Thank you for being part of the beginning… I hope we can grow together for many years to come.
So here is the deal! I want these guys to feeeeeeeel the love this week!!
Today's give-away is courtesy of Santa Barbara Design Studio. You may know them as the fine producers of Curly Girl mugs, candles, wineglasses and other fabulous things. They have created some FABULOUS holiday products for me this year (so fabulous in fact, they are almost all sold out!) and have squirreled a few away for me to give to fabulous you!
The winner of today's give-away will get two holiday wine glasses, a holiday doo-dad jar and a set of the holiday mini-votives! What a haul!

Tell them you stopped by and read a little about what they do and who they are. Heck! Shop with them if you can. Make sure they feel the Curly Girl love. Then, post a comment here and link to a comment or post or other proof that you were there and get entered. Each visit counts as a separate entry so get busy!! One link per comment please.
