C.C.! — A Dotty Blogversary–My FIRST! (+ Giveaway)

Int'l Dot DayWell, faithful followers, since I’ve been bouncing ’round the blogosphere, I’ve noticed most blog owners commemorate their blogs’ anniversaries in one way or another. I don’t want to make a big “to do” about it, but do want to acknowledge, in some way, the milestones as they come 🙂

I can’t believe it’s been a YEAR since I launched this along with my sister blog Writer Side UP!. And it’s been one busy year, I can tell you! So busy that I Continue reading

C.C. — BASEMENT BOPS are FINALLY HERE! With a GIVEAWAY to Celebrate! :D

BOP with specklesLast year, when I first launched my blogs, my intention for Creativity Cookbook was to focus on “All Things Creative,” from spotlighting the creativity of others to things that inspire and encourage our own creativity. It almost goes without saying that feeling fit and having a balanced lifestyle is related to the quality of our creative output. In the effort to find a way to exercise aerobically which would fit into my lifestyle, I developed what I call “Basement Bops.” Continue reading

C.C.–First GIVEAWAY WINNERS of 2015!

GiveawaysSo, gang, another giveaway has come and gone! And it’s amazing to me, but the same two people won the 6 prizes offered (3 per blog)! Their odds of winning were very strong due to the smaller-than-expected turnout, so they won’t just be getting little envelopes…they’ll be getting big ones! 😀 And it turns out that Cool Mom doesn’t use mousepads (she won BOTH lol), so she said to throw them back into the pot—so I did! Thanks, Cool Mom!

Being relatively new at this blogging thing and having only done two giveaways so far, the first being for the blog launches, I’m not sure my timing was right on this one since it was the holiday season. With that in mind I let it run for 11 days, but I don’t think that made a difference! What I didn’t do, as you may remember, was to be specific about clicking on the links to enter. What I’ve decided is that, for future giveaways, I will number commenters in order of comment succession, then will use Random.org. I think that will work out much better and will be less complicated for everyone overall. Live and learn, right? 😀

So, with all that said, the lucky Creativity Cookbook winners ARE:

C.C!–It’s GIVEAWAY Time!

Hello, everybody! 😀

OK, I realized today, while scheduling a couple upcoming posts, that it’s been way too long since I’ve done a Giveaway! That’s why I decided, to close out 2014, I’m going to run one on BOTH my blogs 🙂 Yay! The prizes are the same, so if you didn’t win one of the three I offered to celebrate my blog launches, here’s an opportunity (and there will be more next year) to give it another go!

C.C.—TWO Winners and One of Them is ME!

A “heads up” for anyone following both blogs: this is a double post, so the contents are the same.

GiveawaysHello, everyone! I do hope this finds you all well on this Monday morning. Well, it’s morning here on the U.S. east coast, anyway 😉

With my last post I ran a little giveaway for 3 bookmarks. (I have plenty to give away so I’ll be doing it again, along with the occasional mousepad and notebook.) Just a few minutes ago Rafflecopter did its “thing” and I’m more than happy to announce the winner is none other than *drum roll, please*: Continue reading
