A BLOGGY BIRTHDAY {& A GIVEAWAY!}


My blog baby has turned One!  The actual date slipped by me last week, but I wanted to mention it so that I could share the love with all of you FABULOUS readers!  

via

Whether you stop me in the hall at church to tell me how much you like the blog, subscibe by RSS or e-mail, check in occasionally to see what I'm up to, or have featured one of my projects, you all have been such a strong support and encouragement to me as I have taken on this huge project. And I'm so thankful for you!  So many times I've wondered if all of this work is worth it, and just at the right time a sweet comment or e-mail comes my way that keeps me going!

To show my appreciation to YOU, how about a giveaway?  How about YOUR CHOICE of a $25 gift card?

You may choose from one of the following stores...


To enter, just leave a comment on today's post.  You don't have to follow, tweet, facebook, or anything else to be entered (unless you want to!).  I'm just thankful that you're here!  If you don't have a google account, be sure to leave your e-mail with your comment.  If you win, I want to make sure I can contact you!  Please, only one entry per person, and the winner will be chosen at random.

LIKE ME! TWEET ME!  FOLLOW ME!  
FIND ME IN YOUR E-MAIL INBOX!

Along with reaching my year anniversary of blogging, everything for the blog is now all linked up to several social media outlets.  Did you notice those new labels over on the right side?  My facebook page and twitter account are brand new, so I would be incredibly grateful if you'd hop over and like me, tweet me, or follow me on Pinterest!  


Also, if you're not currently a regular follower, but never want to miss a post, you can sign up to receive regular posts through e-mail or by my RSS feed. Just click on those links on my sidebar and it should walk you through signing up.  Let me know if you run into any snags...I THINK I did everything right, but I'm still learning!

Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a gift card!  Giveaway will close Saturday evening, 9/15, at midnight CST. 

***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED***

I'm so excited to begin a second year of blogging, and so grateful that you all are along for the journey!

  14. Happy 1 Year! I recently moved in to a home that needs a COMPLETE makeover and I've gotten so many easy ideas from your blog! Thank you for helping me see how I can transform the stark white bedroom walls in the bedrooms, the sailboat wallpaper in the bathroom, and the grease spattered kitchen into what will become amazing (and on a budget)!

Of course, I'm a follower and receive email updates too. Will check out your FB page. I am probably the only person that doesn't 'tweet' but I am on Pinterest at times.

  51. Happy Birthday Dimples and Tangles! Jennifer, I am so glad God gives us creative people like yourself, to brighten the days of the noncreative people like myself. Keep up the good work!

  52. Jennifer, there are few blogs that I follow regularly, and fewer with those who have become friends. Yep, blog friends can be real friends, particularly when the Lord is the common denominator. Aside from the beauty, creativity and inspiration you share every. single. time. (No pressure...haha!), I am so thankful just for you. Talk about an email or comment that comes in at just the right time. That's you.

    Have you all ever thought about moving to sunny SoFla? I make a mean gallo pinto (rice & beans) and plantains. Lol. Seriously, there's a house for sale in my neighborhood. ;)

    Thankful for you...your blog...and how God is using you.

    (And thanks for reminding me to sign up for emailed posts! That way I will always receive my dose of Dimples & Tangles!)

  53. It's always fun to see what you're up to! I especially enjoy the pictures of your house - very inspiring. I did my own version of your botanical wall (except with birds) in my kitchen in a 4 x 3 grid. I always get compliments on it and I love how it filled up the wall where I had nothing in the first place. Keep up the great blogging! Blessings to you...

  66. Congrats on your blog birthday! I just found your site, via Its Overflowing's Dreamy Dwelling Home Tours. Your home is absolutely GORGEOUS! I looked at the pictures before reading, thinking, "Oh, this lady hired a great designer for her home." Then, I go back and see that YOU did it, and said, "my home is my hobby." I don't know if you realize this, but your hobby could definitely turn into one sought after professional decorator/designer business....if you ever have the urge to go that route. I mean that honestly....your home is beautiful! So glad to have found your site. I'm joining NOW! :-)
