Happy 1st Birthday This Little Light & A Giveaway!

So you may know by now that I am a tad bit birthday crazy! :)  I love them! Mine, yours, any one's! They just make me happy! :)  I think any reason to celebrate is a good one! If you are just joining me, welcome to This Little Light! You can go HERE to learn a little bit about me.  I hope you stick around for awhile! :) So, with out further ado...Please enter my giveaway! :)
 
 
This Little Light is celebrating it's 1st Birthday this week! You have no idea how much it means to me to say that. When I started this blog, I was unsure if I would ever have anyone who wasn't related to me or worked at desk right next to mine read this. I think I cried the first time someone I had never met in real life followed my blog! :) I am thankful for each and every one of you that read This Little Light. It makes my heart happy! :)  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
 
 

Reflecting on this last year I realized even though it was a rollercoaster for me personally (I went from two jobs, to one job, to no job, back to one job, that I will be trading for a new job next week! Sheesh!) that I learned so much about blogging and I have made some wonderful blog friends.  I am really looking forward to what this next year will bring! :)

Let's take a look at my top three view posts from the last year!
 
 
 
 
It doesn't surprise me that the before and afters were the most viewed. They are usually my favorite part of reading blogs too! I also really love bling, so I get that too! I'm expecting my daughter's recent Wonderland Birthday Party  will be on it's way to the top 3 soon!
 
 If you read the "About Me" (about me) :) then you know one of my favorite places in the whole world is Hobby Lobby.  I have a few other favorite places (a local thrift store, the library, my house) but none of those places offer gift cards...Hobby Lobby does! :)  I tried to make this giveaway super simple....Good luck friends! :)

  I will be back this weekend with a new project and the giveaway will go until next Wednesday (the 17th)!
Thanks for stopping by! :)
