Why I love giveaways

Pin It
As you have heard me say on here I love entering giveaways. Of course the obvious reason I love them is the free stuff ;D There is another reason I love entering giveaways. Sometimes, just sometimes, you find truly awesome blogs that you stick on your favorites bar and eagerly read every day. Blogs that I love are brimming with positivity and gratefulness. Places where I can go and connect with others, usually women.

Today I ran across a giveaway for 20 vintage fat quarters. My eyes nearly bugged out as I frantically clicked on the link. I love fabric, all things fabric. I love to sew, quilt, and craft with it. Of course this giveaway was right up my alley. Normally on blogs all you do is follow someone, get their emails, or other very impersonal things. This blog was different. She wanted to get to know me, "leave me a comment about something YOU feel thankful for feeling more confident about! we'd all love to cheer you on!" WoW! So I looked around her blog. What a warm and positive environment.

Yes, I am blogging about her site because I would love to get my fingers on those fat quarters. I am also blogging because of how impressed I was with her blog, The Rikrak Studio. I hope that if you have an interest in the fabric you will check out her out, but I also hope you will look at her other posts. I think this is a community you will want to be a part of, I know I do :D Happy giveaway hunting and blog surfing!
