For The Love…Of Blogging GIVEAWAY #1

This is it!  The end of the For the Love…Of Blogging Week!

You made it to the end…and as a reward?  GIVEAWAYS!

So let’s get started, shall we?  There are NINE here in Sluiter Nation and they will be posting EVERY hour starting NOW!

We are starting with one of the newest additions to Sluiter Nation’s Sponsor Spots: Peggy Ann Design!

Peggy Ann Design is the result of the sweet and wonderful HANNAH!  And here she is to tell you about her shop:

I am a Navy wife who has a serious fabric addiction! My shop is kind of a random mix of items, with one main focus: FABRIC!!

And yay for US that she loves fabric!  Check out here ADORABLE new clutches:

I know…I know…you are already thinking about how great Hannah is…but WAIT!  There’s MORE!

Check out her shop…she does ADORABLE frames too (I own one…I know of this greatness) and?  She is working on even MORE:

I just added 2 new limited edition clutches – there are only 4 of each of these available! I also have 2 new products coming out very soon and LOTS of exciting stuff happening Feb 14- March 14. It would be a good idea to become a follower of the blog or on twitter before then (It’s the Month of Hannah – V-Day, my Bday, and our anniversary!)!
People?  Hannah is the AwesomeSauce for sure.
You want some of her goods?  Yeah, you do.
Hannah is giving one of you $25 shop credit to Peggy Ann Design!
You have TWO ways to enter:
1) Tell me what you like best about the blog world…you don’t have to be a blogger to love blogs!
2) Tweet about the giveaway and then come here and leave a comment that you tweeted.  You can make something up, but if you are all lazy like I am, you can just copy and paste this:

I love blogging and I love giveaways!  Enter to win with @ksluiter and @PeggyAnn_Design

That’s it!
Of course you should go browse (and then buy!) in her shop.
You should follow her sweetness on twitter.
You should like LOVE her on facebook
and of COURSE you should follow her blog for all the fun that is coming up next month!
This giveaway ends Sunday, January 30 at noon est.  Winners will be chosen by and posted that same day.

The fine print:  Peggy Ann Design is providing the spoils for this giveaway.  I have gotten nothing in return other than the joy of giving you something I love from someone I love.
