Arts & Crackers Birthday Giveaway!


It’s Arts & Crackers’ 1st birthday April 4 and we are celebrating with a giveaway! But first, I’d like to start by saying thank you to some of those who helped and supported me throughout this year!

There are so many friends and family who helped me this year with Arts & Crackers, so I may leave out a few but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate them! First, I want to thank my amazing husband and my two precious boys for helping to encourage me, and test out review items with me and bearing with me on my busy, stressful days. I would also like to thank my mom and grandma for always being there for me to proof-read my posts in case I missed anything! Now to my blogger friends–I want to thank Sarah from Coupon Savvy Sarah, Tracey from Tracers Coupon Affair, Dawn from Adventures of Goldilox, Stephanie from Super Frugal Stephanie, Kristin from Coupon Friendly, Charrise from Darlin’ Deals, and so many more that have helped me out here and there as well as my brand new blogger friends! Last but not least, I also want to thank all of you, my readers! Without you, my blog would not be anything! Thank you for taking the time to read my posts, share them, like them, comment on them, and enter my giveaways! 

This year of blogging has been quite event-filled. I started my blog on April 4 (my husband’s birthday…oops!) and was busy switching over some of my favorite posts from my Dealy Os blog (like these Yogurt Cup Planters); my husband deployed (check out my Deployment Freebies and Resources for Military Families post); I had a baby; my husband returned home from deployment (read my As We Were, But Even Better post); and we worked with many companies on reviews and giveaways, shared several crafts and teaching tips, and shared some fun recipes! I am looking forward to where this new year of blogging will take Arts & Crackers and appreciate your continued support and sharing!

And now…the giveaway! Here is how this will work: I have four prizes at this time. All will be on the same giveaway, but I will number the prizes in first prize, second prize, third, and fourth. When I choose the winners, the first winner will receive the first prize, second the second and so on. Keep an eye on the giveaway just in case we are able to add more prizes and come back every day to comment and tweet for bonus entries! All entries will be verified and incomplete or fraudulent entries will be removed. This giveaway is open to the USA and Canada. Good luck!
