Let’s Get It Started…oh, oh, oh, oh… And Giveaway Day #1

Welcome to the party!!!! (read all the way to the bottom for the giveaway of the day!)

I’m so glad you’re here, and I hope you’ll stay and party with us all week…the more the merrier! I’ve got some fun posts to share with you each day, and some super-fabulous prizes for you to win too.

Since this is a blog warming party, I wanted to “show you around” a little today! First of all, the page you’re reading is VIGNETTES and is simply the blog portion of my website. You can subscribe via Feedburner to have the posts delivered to your inbox each day, “Like” us on Facebook to have the posts show up in your Facebook feed, and become a GFC follower for the posts to show up on your dashboard reader. I hope you’ll consider becoming a friend of Vignettes if you enjoy your visits here…you must be one to enter all of the giveaways this week! –

Also, via the LANDING PAGE, you can easily access VICTUALS: which is where you’ll find all of the recipes that have been shared here on Vignettes (plus bonus recipes too) nicely indexed and easy to find. You can use it just like you would a cookbook!

There is also a link to KRISTIN’S VINTAGE GARDEN where you’ll find some of my crafty goods for sale…hand-stamped cards, notebooks, fabric flowers, purses, earrings, if you haven’t already – go browse around! All week, if you use the coupon code: WARMING at checkout, you’ll receive 20% off your entire purchase!

Lastly, you’ll find a link to THE VIRTUAL VERANDA . This is a relatively inactive community right now, but I’m hoping you all will catch the BlogFrog vision and start utilizing it! You can post questions for other members, leave links to blog posts of your own (and giveaways) and we can host live chats there too!

In fact: our first LIVE CHAT will be held on Wednesday evening (the 17th) at 8pm EST. We’ll be chatting about how to build a support network within the blogging community. Put it on your calenders…should be great! Especially if you’re there! You’ll need to be a member of BlogFrog to chat, but it’s free and easy to sign up. Just click HERE and you’ll be all ready to go!

…and now for the giveaway!!!

Today up for grabs is a “Celebrate Summer” Gift Package just in time for the last few glorious weeks of this carefree season! Here is what you could win:1 – Coconut Foot Scrub
1 – Coconut Food Lotion
1 – Summer Glazewear Lip Gloss (clear)
1 – Jade Nail Polish
1 – Summer Floral Body Lotion
(All products from AVON)

Chester, my giveaway manager, got all spiffed up for you in his favorite summer seersucker bandana today.

That’s right, all you have to do to enter today is be a follower of Vignettes yourself, and then tell one (or more if you’re a real Peach!) friend about this week-long Blog Warming Party. After all, the whole purpose of the party this week is to help spread the word!

Then leave a comment here telling me who you shared it with! That’s all there is to it. Good luck!

Giveaway entries end on Monday, August 22nd
