VINYL GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello Everyone! This is my first official giveaway since I started doing my vinyl business and I'm so excited!
I've always been someone who loves quotes. It's always fun to go into some one's home and see if they have any sort of quotes whether it be vinyl or not, it helps in some ways to give the person or family some sort of definition as to who they are or what they believe. When I was in High School the big thing to do was to add a quote under your Senior picture in the yearbook. Were the people trying to go for a serious approach? Or were they trying to take the more humorous route? Other times it was more of an inside joke that you may or may not have gotten. I liked to take the more humorous route myself. My senior quote read:
"Remember, always follow your dreams; Unless it's the one when you show up to school naked."
You should have seen the look of horror my mother had on her face after reading that! But it was fun and it still makes me laugh to this day when I think of that quote. Would I put it in my house? No, but it's a fun glimpse of what I was like back then. Oh how I loved Deep Thoughts By Jack Handey. :)
Another quote that has stuck with me from back when I was a teenage is more on the serious side and a great motto for how we should live our lives. I got this from one of my Church Teachers when I was a youth it reads:
"Happiness is not a Destination we arrive at; but a manner of Traveling."
That is a quote I would happily display in my home.

Anyway, back to my giveaway! I have three chances for you to be entered into the drawing. And what is that drawing for you might ask? Well it will be for $30 in FREE VINYL of your choice. So, like I said, there are three chances for you to win.
  1. Leave me a comment telling me what your favorite quote is. If you need some help picking a quote, I have a whole list of quotes that can be found on the left side of my blog. There are different categories breaking them down so you aren't quite so overwhelmed with them all.
  2. Become a follower of my blog over on in the column on the right hand side. Leave a comment about doing so as well.
  3. Tell about this giveaway on your blog linking back to this blog and leave a comment again letting me know that you did this as well.

Be sure to leave a comment for each individual entry so you can be counted. I will be using Random.org to determine who the lucky winner is! The winner will be chosen on Thursday October 1, 2009. So be sure to get your entries in soon and check back for the announcement!

Good luck and I can't wait to read all of your quotes. I'll probably add them to my list after this is over with!
