1000 Followers Giveaway

My happy little blog is fast approaching one thousand fantastic followers, and I say that calls for a giveaway! So to show how much I appreciate YOU for following my blog, I will be giving away the winner’s choice of one of the 1000 series books listed below. And knowing my readers like I think I do, I believe there’s at least one book here you would like. I have several of the 1000 series books for graphic design. They are plump full of inspiration!


To enter to win, simply let me know that you follow my blog by leaving a comment to this post. If you don’t yet follow, just go to the left column and click on “Join This Site”, then leave me a comment so I know you are entered.

Once my blog reaches 1000 followers (or members) I will continue accepting entries and post the winner within 3 days of reaching that number. (Sorry if that’s a bit vague, I’ll post a deadline as soon as I hit 1000.) The winner will receive their 1000 book via Amazon.com, so be sure to leave your contact information so I can get your shipping information if you win.

And THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU, for being an important part of my very special blog world!
