My Blogaversary Giveaway!

Surprise! At the end of this week, I'm celebrating my first Blogaversary! Yes, one year ago I began this blog, not my first and probably not my last, but certainly my most fun one! I've really enjoyed this year on Indulge Your Shelf, especially getting to know all of you -- the wonderful friends I've met here in Cyberspace!

To celebrate, I've decided to offer a giveaway: a snowman ornament, handmade by me!

I made these ornaments over the weekend, from a tutorial that was part of the Artist Class I took. I just love the way they turned out -- they're whimsical, aren't they?

This is the exact snowman you could win:

He is made with Creative Paperclay, painted in acrylic paint, dressed in antique dictionary pages, and dusted with sparkly glitter!

My giveaway is open to anyone the world over, and you can enter to win him by commenting ON THIS POST ONLY anytime between now and 11:59 p.m. MT on Friday, December 11, 2009. I will choose a winner on Saturday, December 12.

You many comment below 1-3 times for that many chances to win:

1) Everyone can comment once; please be sure that your comment forwards to your own blog and/or that your email is included.
2) If you follow this blog, including if you are already a follower, comment a second time.
3) If you post about this giveaway on your own blog with a link back to THIS POST, comment a third time.

The winner will be chosen using the Random Number Generator.

Bonus: currently, 77 friends follow this blog, but I would love reach an even 100 followers. So, if by the time this contest ends, I have 100 followers, I will give away a second prize, which will remain a surprise until I announce it.

Thank you everyone for helping me to celebrate this one year mark!
