A Special Blog Anniversary…Giveaway!!

In honour of Beautiful Girlhood’s six year anniversary, I have decided to host a very special celebratory giveaway!   
Yes indeed, my friends, I am celebrating six wonderful years of sharing my heart and life on Beautiful Girlhood

…And what a special and memorable six years it has been as I have journeyed into womanhood and pursued God in beautiful, Biblical femininity, and continue to do so…

I have been so blessed to have made special friends along the way and truly appreciate all your kind words of encouragement - I simply love visiting each of you at your beautiful blogs!

Now…onto the exciting giveaway!

One reader will receive this lovely gift which includes…

A pack of four pretty handmade fabric coasters…

A pack of six handmade gift tags…

…And a pretty drawstring bag with a crocheted edge!


I will be away for the month of April and will be taking a short break from blogging, so this post will remain up until my return! 

I hope to announce the winner on May 3rd

To enter…simply leave me a comment!

This giveaway is open to all readers, both new and old, all over the world!


I hope April is a beautiful month for you! 

I look forward to sharing my adventures with you in May when I return to the blogging sphere… 

Until then, have a wonderful month!

See you in May :)

Hi Kelly-Anne! Thanks for visiting my blog. I've enjoyed reading your posts and have bookmarked your blog to keep up when you come back from your break. Enjoy your time!

Amy said...

What a sweet blog you have. First off I wanted to thank you so much for leaving me a comment. I have never thought to try the sourdough bread. Do you have a good recipe I could try? That whole sourdough starter kinda scares me. Every recipe I have read, sounds a bit confusing. I'm still researching and hoping God will show me exactly what I need to take out of my diet. It's amazing how so much stuff has yeast in it. It's a learning in progress here!

My mom in law is Roxy over at Living from Glory to Glory and she speaks very highly of you and your blog. I don't get on much as of right now, but I have added you to my side bar and will be checking in when I do manage to get on the computer.

I hope you enjoy your Spring as well. Enjoy your time off the computer. :)

Have a blessed month!

Blessings, Amy
