Seriously Huge Giveaway. Something for YOU plus a FRIEND.


Holy stinkin’ smokes. 


I have a really cool giveaway to share today.  And it’s going to blow your socks off.  (You shouldn’t have socks on anyway.  It’s warm out. ;) )  Especially if you have always wanted a new camera.  What better time to start taking great pictures than summer time.  Lots of beautiful light.





Up for grabs is TWO (yes, you read that right), 2 Canon Rebel Cameras!! One for you and, well, one for your friend! If you win, you’ll receive this fabulous camera plus one more to give to your friend. You and a friend can learn together and start sharing pictures between the two of you.  And then start sharing tips and cool photo tricks.  So you may want to increase your odds by spreading the word and getting all those “friends” to sign up.


And, just because two winners just didn’t seem like enough, there’s also a $100 cash gift card for the lucky runner up.




Don’t know much about the Canon Rebel?  Read more about this camera HERE.  


It’s also the first DSLR camera I owned and was the only one I used on my blog until about 8 months ago.  (And I still use it as my back-up.  In fact, I was using it all of last month after I dropped my bigger camera on concrete and had to be sent away for repair.  Ouch, I know.  A little clumsy.)  The Canon Rebel does so much.  And takes some beautiful pictures. 


Anyway, 2 fancy little cameras are up are ready to be given away.

So hurry and enter.  I know, I know, you’re worried about your chances. But for something as big as this, it’s worth a shot, right? :)

  2. Azure Kitts says:

    I have a question!! I changed my email address since I entered this contest and deleted that account!! Yikes! What do I do if I win!!!??? (That’s a big IF, but just in case! Wouldn’t want to miss this great opportunity on the likes of me deleting my account!!) Thanks so much!!

  3. Averiee says:

    Awwww man! I’m to late!!!! that would have been soooooo awesome! Well, good luck to whoever did get here in time.

  4. Valerie says:

    Oh boy! A new camera would be amazing! I hope I win!

  5. Theresa Rezler says:

    what a sweet prize. I need a new camera for my photography and I can give the other one to my daughter so she can capture shots of her two little ones.

  6. Jenny Browning says:

    Oh my!!! I have been wanting a new camera for years!! My phone just isn’t doing it for me! My son just turned 5 and I was so bummed out looking through all the photos that I took the next day-they were out of focus or I just barely missed the smile he had on his face b/c the camera took too long to snap my photo. :{ The canon rebel is the one I have had my eye on!
    Winning this would just rock my socks!! {which, sorry to say, Ashley, I am wearing b/c my house if freezing!!}

  7. Megan says:

    Crossing my fingers that I win this!

  8. Sandra says:

    Your site is just so much fun to visit! It gives me so many ideas… that I’ll usually twist to the next step to make it my own. Like the glass etching… I actually didn’t care for the inconsistency of the etching cream… So I went and bought a nozzle sprayer and a small drum of sand ( which was a lot cheaper then using the aerosol cans of sand Michaels sells ) and used my air compressor and blasted away. When I compared the final product to the ones where I used the cream and aerosol cans… The compressor glass looked far superior!!! I hope you try it.

    This is just an amazing giveaway! I had an expensive digital camera to take pictures of my little boy… But one day I had friends come over… Who brought along their own friends I didn’t know…. Long story short… They broke my camera cuz one guy didn’t want pictures getting out to his girlfriend of him kissing a girl. They didn’t know how to delete them… Decided not to ask me how… So they smashed it. Like cavemen! The end of the night I found my camera, in pieces, wrapped in a pool towel, in the big garage garbage can.
    To win would be so wonderful!! I took a photography class years ago… But it does no good when I can only take photos with a camera phone. Hehe

    Anyway… Thanks for the site and all your inspiration.

    What an awesome give away I would probably end up giving both away to my Daughters so they could take endless photos of my new grand babies.

  10. Shaun Meng says:

    Hey Ashley. Your blog is huge!!! My wife talks about it all the time, so it would be totally cool if I won this giveaway and she will be like “how did you win?” Anyway, hope the fam is doing great!

    1. Ashley says:

    Thank you so much for the chance!!! I’m so excited for the possibility!! I’ve got a friend that could really use one (and I just can’t afford to get one for her); this would be heaven sent! Thanks again for the opportunity!!!!! :)

  13. Amy says:

    Wow! This is an amazing giveaway! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  14. Anthony Bissell says:

    This is an amazing giveaway! My wife, Thea and I just got back from our honeymoon and our camera and all our photos were stolen out of our suitcase. It was a terrible tragedy. This would be a fantastic gift for her.

    Love this site a lot. You’re awesome and sooo crafty.


  15. Genevieve V. says:

    I don’t have a FB account, so I didn’t “like” the blogsites on FB, but I have enjoyed visiting at least four of them on a semi-regular basis. Hope my entry still counts. Thanks!

    1. Ashley says:

      Even without FB, you’re entered if you filled out the form.

      Good luck!


  16. Valerie says:

    Don’t have FBook, so couldn’t do that part, but hope I am still entered. Thanks for all the great sewing ideas you post. I have a granddaughter I enjoy making things for. Your children are very cute!!

    1. Ashley says:

      Yep, even without FB, you’re entered if you filled out the form.

      Good luck!


  17. Dawnica says:

  18. Lyndsay says:

  19. Karen says:

  20. chelesa sims says:

    OMG thank for such a fantastic giveaway!

  21. Melinda at Weiser Academy says:

    This is great! I hope to win and take lots more pictures!

  22. serra says:

    seriously awesome. I’ve been saving for a new camera, but like someone else mentioned…. something of more monetary importance always gets put first. I’d LOVE to win this, for myself and a friend. Or… one for myself and another one of these lovely people entering!! And if I don’t win the camera, then I’d love the gift card to help in purchasing a camera!!! haha.. thanks so much for the opportunity!!!


  23. Barbara says:

    I entered, but I cannot “Like” anybody on Facebook because I choose to not have one of their pages. It saddens me tremendously when people offer a nice prize then take away the chance to win by forcing participants to “Like” them on FB. That’s coercion, and it really, really sucks. Not everyone likes that place or the way they sell your privacy. They have abused their “promises” so often that they now pay the federal government $20,000 a day in fines, according to Infoworld. I hope bloggers and crafters will stop this madness. Even their recent IPO was a big scam that cost people millions of investment dollars. They are now sueing the manipulators.

    1. Ashley says:

      You aren’t forced into “liking” anyone to enter this giveaway. If you see a new site who you’d like to start following, you can “like” it if you choose to. The sites listed are just the ones who contributed to this fun and exciting giveaway. To be entered into the giveaway, all you must do is fill out the form with your name and email address (so that we can contact you if you win)……but you don’t have to “like” even one person to be be able to fill out the form. Hope that clears things up for you.


  24. Melissa says:

    Thanks so much for finding a way to make the contest open to Canadians!

  25. Dawn says:

    10 year anniversary was May 25th….this would be a great belated anniversary gift to my husband. :) We have 4 kids and our present camera has seen better days.
