100th Post Giveaway!!

This is my 100th post!

I’ve gone from my very first post, Valentine’s I found on Martha Stewart’s website in February of 2009, to last month, being invited to a party thrown by the crafting queen herself.  And let’s not forget all the fun in between:

Moving across the country!

Having a new baby!

Trying out for the Oprah Winfrey network!

And sharing my life and family with all of you…from my grandmother, Annie, to my little man, and then to my beautiful baby girl!

It’s been quite a ride, and I can honestly say that all of you have helped inspire me and motivate me to continue to create and craft.  Thank you all so much!

And who doesn’t love a giveaway to celebrate??

Leave a comment below and you will be entered to win a button necklace kit of your choice from my website, NikkiInStitches.com. You can say anything you’d like in your comment, but I’d love to hear what your favorite posts have been.  What did you like best?  What would you like to see more of?  Maybe even what you could do without! (Hurry! Comments will close Friday, September 10th at midnight, and the winner will be announced Sunday morning!)

So, just one last time, thank you again for making these 100 posts fly by.  I had no idea where this blog would take me when I started it 18 months ago.  I am so amazed at how far it’s come.  And I can’t wait to see where it takes me!

Love,

Nikki, In Stitches
