Glittery Giveaway

Giveaway is closed ~ winner announced
later today ~ Tuesday 3/16.
Ask anyone ~ I really enjoy having this blog! I love being able to look back over the past 500 plus posts ~ yikes, did I say 500! It's interesting to see what mattered enough to me to warrant my time to post it. There's no rhyme or reason to what I choose to post about, Life experiences, family ~ to include my sweet grandbabies, favorite quotes & scripture, swap goodies, an occasional recipe, trips...it's fun to go back and re-visit some of the things going on in my life.

Another thing I like about my blog is the opportunity it affords me to share things with others. Whether it be things I have and no longer need or a really fun bargain that I couldn't resist buying ~ I love the chance to give it away!

So, of course, that leads me to this....my 500th plus post GIVEAWAY!

It's Martha Stewart's "essential colors glitter set". Martha says, "These fine glitters in 24 vivid colors will add sparkle to any project". Do you have any projects that need a little glitter?

How about some glittery eggs for Easter. Martha shares some glittery egg tips here and many more glittery ideas here.


Or maybe you'd like to glitter up a pair of shoes for yourself!
(who wears heels this high ~ I'd fall of of them!)


Here's how to enter this glittery giveaway.
1. Leave a comment here for one entry.
2. Mention my giveaway on your blog and get a second entry.
(please let me know if you do that, in a second comment here)

Keep reading for TWO more chances to win!
I began a photo blog the beginning of this year...it's a place for me to post photos taken with my (Christmas gift) camera. I share one photo a week...and I'd love some feedback on them. I'm not a photographer. I just like to take pictures ( a lot of them) and I'd love to hear (good or bad) what you think.
So if you visit 52 Looks and leave a comment (on any post) and I'll add two more entries for you.
That's a possibility of four chances to win.


I'll be drawing the winner next Tuesday, March 16th.
Good Luck and thanks for visiting me!

What a neat post inspired by glitter. I love making posts like this, something I'm inspired by and then what others have done with the same idea. And what a great giveaway. I bought a small package of three Martha glitters last week, couldn't afford the big package, but maybe I'll get lucky and win. Thanks for sharing such a great blog! Heading over to see some of your pics now.
Thanks and have a very happy day!
