My 100th Post: My First Ever Giveaway!

I'm so excited... My 100th post is finally here! In celebration I thought it would be a lot of fun to host my very first giveaway! Now, I know I don't have the greatest amount of followers and readers but I thought this would still be a fun way to celebrate. :) So here are the items I will be giving away:

~ Prize Number One ~

This is a beautiful, 14" x 16" pillow that my sister made especially for this giveaway. Thank you so much, Sis!

Isn't it just gorgeous?!

Here is a close-up of the three different fabrics.

~ Prize Number Two ~

A set of three different cards made by me! :)

Here is the first.

A look inside...

This is the second card.

Another peek inside...

And here is the third one.

And, of course, a look at the inside.

~ Prize Number Three ~

A cute button journal!

With some pretty ribbon on the side to tie it closed.


Now here's how this giveaway will work:

I will be giving away each of the three prizes to a different winner.

  • By leaving me a comment on this post... your name will automatically be entered one time for each of the three prizes.

  • By putting the special button I've created for this giveaway on your sidebar (linking back to this page) OR (for those without a blog) by sharing with me your favorite thing about my blog... your name will be entered a second time for the prize of your choice. Just leave me a separate comment telling me you've done so and for which prize number you'd like to have your second entry.

  • By posting about this giveaway on your blog (feel free to use the button I created) OR (for those without a blog) by sharing your favorite Bible verse or quote with me... your name will be entered a third time for the prize of your choice. Be sure to let me know you've done so and for which prize number you'd like to have your third entry.

ANYONE can enter, but I will not be shipping outside of the U.S.

The drawing will be held on Monday, November 30th. Happy entering!!
May the Lord bless you and keep you!

Hello Taylor! Thank you for joining my blog and for your sweet comment! I love your blog as well. It seems that we have a lot in common. I was wondering, are you possibly attending the conference in December in Ohio? If you are, perhaps we will be able to meet!
I would like to enter your contest (cute things by the way.) I have posted about the giveway on my blog and also put it on my sidebar! Thanks for doing the giveway! Your prizes are really cute

Thanks for having this giveaway!

Thanks for doing this!

Allison said...

And, I think I'd like the Button Journal for the prize of my choice. Sorry I forgot to say that in my last comment :)

Erika said...

Hello Taylor,
Thank for your visiting my page and leaving me a comment! I love comments. I always get excited when I saw one awaiting me in the mornings. haha! :)
To answer your question, here is a very simple summary of a non-cessationist: "It is the belief that the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit taught in the bible -- such as prophecy, tongues, interpretation of tongues, healings, miracles, etc. -- have not ceased and are available for the believer today." This is in contrast with Cessationism which "teaches that supernatural gifts have ceased either when the canon of Scripture was completed or at the death of the last apostle." I know has some interesting resources on these two beliefs from John Piper, Wayne Grudem, John McArthur, and a bunch of other well known theologians and pastors. It is a highly debated topic.
I just want to say that you have such a lovely page. You seem like a very creative young woman. :)
May the grace of the Lord be with you! :)

Kayla said...

Hi my name is Kayla! I really like your stuff you are giving away! My favorite bible verse is john 3:16 For God so loved the world he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have etrnal life. Thats the NIV version. I am going to put your picture on my blog. God bless you!


Buttercup said...

Hi Taylor, I'm Buttercup. I just found you through Maggie's blog, and thought I'd stop by! I love homemade things! In my opinion, they are much nicer than bought things. :)

I'll have to let my parents look at your blog first, then I will probably be tuning in!

Love in Christ,

Allison said...

And, just in case this is any extra credit, I think my favorite bible verse is-

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 119:105

I just found your blog recently, but I like it alot already!!
I really enjoy the pictures of you & your sisters and also your posts about modesty.
I'm looking forward to reading more about you and what the Lord is showing you!!!

Taylor said...

Hi Taylor,
I came across your button on Eldarwen's blog, and I thought I should visit to see if you were a girl. I am(or was) the only girl I knew whose name was Taylor, if that is your real name. I was reading your profile, and we have so much in common, it's scary! I go to a small Baptist church, I am homeschooled and have four sisters, I am the oldest and the two youngest are adopted! Is that freaky or what?!? Come to my blog to find out more.( I don't know how to put your button on my blog, could you tell me how?)

Tessa said...

How fun!

Moriah said...

Hi Taylor! I'm a new follower to your blog. That is very exiting that you're doing your first giveaway! Those cards you made are beautiful! I like making things also. BTW, your blog is very cute and I enjoy already reading your blog! Please check out my blog, go to and it will take you there right away. I also came from Eldarwen's blog.

gwen said...

I was encouraged to enter the drawing by my granddaughter. It seems that you do quality work. Even if I don't win, I am pleased that you are interested in creating pretty things. Have you considered marketing them as a home business?

Thegirlizzie said...

Ummm..... can I have the HTML for the button? I'm kinda new to blogger, so I don't really know how to do anything without the HTML. But, incase I don't get the HTML, I will tell you my favorite verse. It's Psamls 147:5 KJV Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
Oh, and I for got when I posted about it that I want to enter for the button journal, same with this one. Bye for the last time maybe! ~Lizzie
