Happy Blogoversary to ME and a Giveaway!


One year ago TODAY I wrote my first post on Artsy-Fartsy Mama {I know what you're thinking: really, Lindsay?? Christmas stockings in March?! Oh well, you have to start somewhere!}. I can't believe it's already been a year. So much has happened here at Artsy-Fartsy Mama in that short time. I've gotten over a million {A MILION!! crazy...} page views, and have exceeded any expectations I had when I started blogging. Most of all, I've met so many fabulously talented bloggers and made so many new friends. Whether you're a new follower, or a newcomer, I am so glad you're here.

Thanks to a busy business, sickness, and vacations, I apologize for the posts being a little less than expected lately - but I promise there are more projects in the near future to be shared!

As with most anniversaries, there is usually a gift involved. This one is no exception!
To say thanks for sticking by me, I've teamed up Jessica Berchtold from Thirty-One for an awesome giveaway!

If you are not familiar with Thirty-One, it is a company that sells cute totes, bags and accessories. Their product line ranges from products for women and teens to kids and each bag comes in a variety of patterns - so there is something for everyone and every personality.

I've had a lot of fun using my Organizing Utility Tote. I decided that my "craft bin" was overflowing and hard to organize and I needed a better option. The pockets in the bag help me to easily find the craft supplies I need to use, and not to mention SO cute to look at!

 
I love the bright colors!! Another thing I like about this bag is that it would also make a great diaper bag or large purse. Even a certain someone's little hands couldn't resist emptying it out and loading it back up...

I'd also like to mention that you can even get your favorite Thirty-One bag personalized with initials, name, or phrase, which could make for a great gift! They have really cute fonts and colors to choose from, plus a guide to help you choose a coordinating color to the print on the bag.

Thirty-One also gives you the opportunity to host a party or even become a consultant. You'll set your own schedule, which makes it a great opportunity for anyone to make some extra income. If you're interested in becoming a consultant or hosting a party, contact Jessica today!

One lucky follower is going to win a
$31 Gift Card
to spend at Thirty-One!

Good Luck and THANK YOU!!

  1. Lindsay, I can't believe that you have turned 1 already!! I love your blog not only for it's craftiness and your ideas, but for your humor as well. I pretty much always leave feeling inspired and ready to go with my shopping list...and some ideas are saved for later on my Pinterest boards-which you got me addicted to.
    Thanks for all of your hard work! Can't wait for the next year.
    Sam :)

  7. Happy Blogoversary! I have loved reading your blog since I first stumbled across it months and months ago, it is by far one of my most favorite sites.
    The Thirty-One bags are great, I have a purse that was given to me as a gift and it has been well used and sadly starting to look it's age, but it has been nearly everywhere and done almost everything.
