1 Year Blogiversary GIVEAWAY

It's been one whole year since I started this blog.
Wow, what a journey the first 365 days have been :)
When I stared The Enchanting Rose I had no idea how wonderful blogging was.
In fact, I didn't know much about blogging at all.
I thought I would just be writing and posting about things I enjoy in life,
my walk with the Lord, and the crafts I make.
I have done that, but I have learned that blogging is so much more;
it's a world of making friendships and connecting with people from around the globe


In the last year I have made several friends through blogging 
that I cherish and hold very close to my heart.
Each one of you have encouraged me by your comments
and you were there for me when I was going through difficulties and trials in life.
The emails and comments from you have shown me the joy of blogging
and that it's not about me, but about you and the connection we share.


All of you, dear friends and followers, 
inspire me to create and write about my faith in Jesus Christ,
it is you that challenges me to come up with new ideas to share,
and it is you that makes me love the world of blogging.


Each day you put a smile on my face :)
You are a gift to me and in return I want to give a gift to you
so I am having a 1 year blogiversary giveaway :)
My heart is so thankful for your kindness and friendship!

The giveaway will start today and go until midnight on July 23rd
and the winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 24th.


*** Rules - Must Do ***

but if you want your name entered more than once you can.....

*** Optional - Extra Entries ***

2. Follow me on Pinterest

Let me know if you like The Enchanting Rose on Facebook
and if you follow along on Pinterest and I will put your name in the hat more than once :)


The first winner will receive all kinds of goodies:
a pretty box filled with scrapbooking stickers and embellishments, 
stamps and ink, rose paper,
3 handmade embroidery hoops with music fabric, birds, and a flower on them,
a roll of washi tape, lace trim, rose clothes pins and a matching notepad.


The second winner will receive two vintage floral handkerchiefs,
one white handkerchief, and three handmade note cards.

Congratulations on your first year of blogging!

You have a very generous heart, dear Stephanie!

These are some lovely gifts, indeed! I won't be entering in the giveaway, for I have so many craft/art items, and need to pare down a bit as it is:)

But I know these will be a blessing to a couple of lovely ladies!

Have a blessed week!

P.S. Did you want me to send you the background to match the header? I forgot if I did that or not.

Happy Anniversary - and many more. Agree about the blogging friendships! Many are made for life, I'm sure, and so many were there for me when my darling husband left me so suddenly last year. Can't imagine life without my blog - or the toys featured either!

Best of luck!

Jazzmin said...

Congratulions on your 1 Year Anniversary of blogging! I share the same feeling as you as far as blogging being much more than you expected in different ways. I have found it to be such a blessing in ways I never imagined. One of those ways is that I have met you through it... you have been such a blessing in my life and a dear friend. You are so genuine and kind and gracious and a truly Godly woman, someone I am thankful the Lord allowed me to cross paths with. You are such a wonderful example to all young women who read your blog, including myself.

Your friendship has meant so much to me. You are such a gift to all of us who read your blog. You have been a blessing and an encouragement to me in all things, but especially in faith and walking in Christ.

Congratulations! And you are also so kind in giving these things away. They are all so beautiful and lovely♥ I can't stop admiring the vintage hankerchiefs. They have such an old-fashioned, lovely beauty to them.

Love and big hugs to you!!
~Jazzmin

I could say "ditto" to all the lovely comments your followers and friends have shared.
You have done a beautiful job with your blog, from the inspiring words from God's Word to your amazing photos to your beauty in your tallent that you use to help those of us along that are not as "crafty".

Who would have thought a year ago you would be where you are in blog land. I do not have a blog, but my, I have come to know some sweet ladies through "The Enchanting Rose"

From a mothers heart it is a blessing to see how the Lord has used you to touch many lives. Your sweet spirit is reflected through out your blog. May the Lord continue to use you through this ministry bringing Him glory.

With love & blessings, mom

Just stopped by tonight to see what you've been up to and was so excited to see your 1st anniversary! Congrats! I loved reading about what blogging has meant to you.
