100th Post and an Absolutely Stephanie Give-away!!!

StephPhoto

Hi All,

I’ve been procrastinating on posting because this is my 100th post!!!

I procrastinated, because I want the hundredth to be really special. How to celebrate? How to celebrate?

So I’ve decided to do an Absolutely Stephanie give-away. I made these cute, little bracelets out of recycled paper a couple of years ago. I rolled them on a toothpick, glued and glazed them, paired them with coordinating matching beads, and strung them on a clear band. Voila! I put them in a local craft show and called my business “Absolutely Stephanie.” It just sounded like me.

All you have to do is to follow my post, and I’ll enter your name for a drawing. If you send me a reply and tell me your favorite thing about my blog, I’ll enter your name two more times. That simple! I’ll give you until November 13th, and then I’ll let Princess Buttercup draw your name. (She likes doing stuff like that.)

I will send your Absolutely Stephanie bracelet by mail. (I know, it’s not very hi-tech–but it will still get to you, just the same.)

If any of you would like to buy one of the Absolutely Stephanie bracelets, I will sell them for $5 each. They make great gifts! This is the first time that I’ve tried selling them online, so let me get back with you…PayPal is probably the best way to go. I’m open to suggestions.

Thanks to all of my loyal readers! {{{Hugs}}},
Stephanie

What is my favorite thing about my blog?

Well, I really like writing, and I get really excited to read my statistics that tell me that people all over the world have read my little posts. It can take a lot of work, particularly to get my pictures in a format that looks okay.

I love people and am an outgoing person. So it’s gratifying to read people’s comments and meet new friends.

I don’t consistently write about growing up in rural south Alabama, but when I do, I have Facebook family and friends who seem enjoy reading about mutual memories of the farm and store.

Blogging is definitely a way to reach out to others in a creative way. I may have mentioned that I have kept a journal since I was 14 years old. Again, not consistently. But my current journal is a sparkly blue spiral-bound notebook that I keep in my nightstand…ready to document the next few pages in my life. -Stephanie

  1. I enjoy your blog because I like hearing about your life as you were growing up. I also like being able to reconnect with you and see what you are up to. In our busy electronic lives it is nice and refreshing to hear from old friends – not that you are OLD, ha ha! =)

  2. I’m a new follower. I choose to follow your blog because I enjoy reading your style of writing and your blog is beautiful- i love the colors and photos!

    • Hi Marci,
      I’m so glad to have you! Welcome to thewritesteph!

      Thanks so much for your kind words, as they are very encouraging to me as a writer. I am also crazy about taking pictures of my family and other things. My dau knows this well. She has started making funny faces or hiding her head when I get out my camera. Grrr! But I kind of understand her point-of-view. I’m sure I’d be the same way. I.e., “Mom, enough already!”

      Please keep visiting me, and let me know if there’s something that you’d like me to write about…whether it’s about me growing up on the farm/store or just about life as a wife/mom. I’ll definitely enter you into the contest along with my other commenters! -Stephanie
