Fabulous Novica Giveaway!!!

Hi Everyone~

Yesterday was a big day for me~My ebook, Blogging: It's a "Woman" Thing took the number one spot in women's blogging on Amazon!!!

The book is just 99 cents. But, women don't need a Kindle to read one~They can even read it right on their desktops with a free app from Amazon. (The link for it at the top of my blog says "How to Read Ebooks on your computer.")

Among other things, women will learn how to grow their blogs; the immense benefits of blogging personally and professionally; and how to create interesting posts that will bring more followers.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Without further ado, there is a winner for my giveaway for Mixed Media Art: Living Your Passion. She is Diane of 1 Card Creator!!! Congratulations on winning my special mixed media package!!!

~ ~ ~ ~


But, I have a new fabulous giveaway starting right now and the winner of this giveaway will be announced next Tuesday. Have you ever heard of Novica? It is an amazing company that is in association with National Geographic~Their products are awesome.

They have gorgeous clothing~as you can see from this blog button!

Exquisite Jewelry~

Amazing housewares~

Isn't this beautiful?

I adore this elephant teapot!

So, what is my giveaway??? ONE winner will be chosen to win a gift certificate to Novica's online store~It is for a total of $37.50! The winner will be announced on Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2011.

If you'd like to enter, just become a follower on my blog and leave me a quick note so that I know you want to enter.

I created a blog button up above if you'd like to post it on your blog (It has the woman in the beautiful red sweater.)

Also, here are some links if you'd like to browse through Novica's awesome site--
