Freebie Friday: 1 Year Blogiversary Giveaway and Q&A!

Holy cow, batman - how did this happen? One year ago today I took the plunge and jumped into the wild and crazy world of blogging. Honestly, I didn't know how long this blog would last at the beginning. Back when I only had a few followers and wasn't sure how if I was even going to like being a blogger, I never imagined that this little ole' blog would grow this big and last this long. And, well, look like this, really. Yes, yes, I'm still diggin' the layout and am in shock at my own random ability to code it.

Anyways, I thought that, this being This Fresh Fossil's One Year Blogiversary and all, that today we should celebrate and have a little fun!

First off, I know I mostly blog about home improvements, before and afters, home decor, decoration ideas, etsy finds, etc etc, yadda yadda, but I'm interested in what you have to say. What do you like to read? What do you want to see on This Fresh Fossil? What interests you? Any comments or suggestions? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Just leave a comment on this post.

Because although I don't always admit it or say it as I should, you guys encourage and inspire both of us to just knuckle-down and git-r-done - be it tiling a backsplash or painting a bedroom. And while I'm always excited to tackle new projects, the prospect of sharing it with you, my lovely readers, is what keeps me going - even when the going gets tough (and it gets tough alot!). You mean so much to me, and honestly, I love it.

And since I'm picking your brain, I figured it was only fair to let you pick mine. Feel free to ask any question you want, and I'll answer it... well, I'll probably answer it, anyways. But seriously - fire away! Ever wonder what sport I did in college? How we met? Why I started blogging? Why we don't have a cat? What kind of dog Barley is? Ask away in the comments section!

And now for the fun stuff: the Giveaway! Cuz ya know, this really couldn't be a Freebie Friday post without a freebie now, could it?

In celebration of This Fresh Fossil's One Year Blogiversary, I've decided to do something a little different - and offer my graphic design services for the giveaway. Fun, right? Yeah, I thought so, too.

The winner will be able to pick one custom/personalized-designed item, made specially for them anyway they want, from an assortment of different graphic items and services I offer:

Custom/Personalized Designs: A Silhouette, Blog Header, Photo Card, or Pop Art.

All items are digital files, and all the winner has to do is just upload/print them!

To Enter The Giveaway:

1) Just leave a comment saying "I'm Personal!"
2) And don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you if you win.
3) The winner will be chosen randomly on Friday, November 26th!

Happy 1-Year Anniversary, This Fresh Fossil - and Happy Friday to you!
