Are you ready for the BIGGEST GIVEAWAY EVER??!!!!
Hi ya'll!

Well I am back from Spirits in Sanford - exhaustedly happy!!  I will be posting pic soon, but we have an important event to announce!!!


But first ... let me tell you about the BIGGEST BLOG HOP GIVEAWAY EVER!!

Last year, The Witches of Giggleswick (founded by LeeAnn of Charmed Congections and I) hosted our 1st Annual Blog Hop Giveaway.  If you remember this, LeeAnn and I invited 11 more artists to join us in a blog hop giveaway.  It was a huge success!  13 prizes --- 13 chances to win!

This year, we are hosting our 2nd Annual Halloween Blog Hop!  There are 21 talented artists in this hop!!  We are so incredibly thrilled to have some of our original witches with us and now to add even more artists to the group is just amazing!  We are thrilled to bring their talent to you!  We even have a few warlocks on board!!  Let's hear it for the men!! 


The blog hop starts this Sunday, October 5th and runs until Wednesday, October 15th.  The winners (and there will be 21 winners) will be announced on Sunday, October 19th! So. without further delay...LET THE GAMES BEGIN!



Attention Hoppers...We are having technical difficulties with a few of our Blogs and should be straightened out by this evening...Thank you for your patience!
