Best of the Year Blog Link-Up Party and (very very cool surprise) Giveaway!

Ooo, I have a fun little treat for you. For the last few months I've been looking for unique trinkets to put together for a giveaway. The package has turned out quite darling I must say. Just some pretties I think every woman would like....some tasty treats, a pair of homemade earrings, a gift from Etsy, something vintage, one treat from Hobby Lobby, one lovely from Nordstrom. Perhaps something to read by the fire. It would be the perfect mid-winter surprise. I'm sure you will find some yellow in there as well. But I figured you would assume that. :)

Usually you just have to leave a comment to enter to win a giveaway, but this time I thought I would make it a bit more fun.

I want you to think about all the posts you wrote in the last year and pick your favorite. It can be anything from a great photo, outfit, vlog, recipe, craft idea or just talking about your day. Link them up to this post and leave a comment. Of those links, I will feature my favorite five here on natalie's sentiments, along with a little write up about you. The winner of the giveaway will be randomly selected from all the links. 

You can enter up to 3 links if you can't decide on your favorite, but you will only have one entry to win the surprise giveaway.

I'll start by linking up my favorite post from 2011 first. (Though "My Fifty Year Old Self" is my favorite "wordy" post.)

I'll pick my five favorite on February 6th. Good luck! I can't wait to see what your year was like.

(Don't forget to enter to win some cute Minted Valentines while you're at it. )

Okay, so hopefully I did this right... let me know if I need to change anything! Have a lovely evening!

Fun! I posted the girls birthday party from September. (Still sad that these photos are missing Lydia's pretty face! :-)) Your post about your 50 year old self is still one of my favorites.

I wrote some dating advice for one of my cousins who is in college. :) It is kind of a joke, but kind of not.

What a great idea! I've linked up my post about my son turning 3.

Mary Ellen said...

Oh I am so private in my posting that it is usually just home things- so my guest room would be it for me

Lauren said...

I couldnt decide...I posted 3. So sorry to make you do all of my dirty work in narrowing it down!

Shanny said...

I think this is such an awesome idea, even if it is a little hard to pick a favorite post, and a little scary to share it. But it's done, I've linked up, can't go back now!

Oh, how lovely, and what a fun idea!! It's pretty hard to pick a fave, but I think I'm happiest about my striped tee-into-skirt makeover. http://www.adventuresindressmaking.com/2011/09/black-and-white-stripe-upcycle-shirt.html

Samantha said...

This is my first time doing this. Hope I did it right. I didn't post the pic correctly. Hope it was okay to go with a generic thumbnail.
Post for baby #4!

Okay, I took the liberty and linked up three posts because I truly could not decide. Of course, my favorite post of the year is YOURS-- the one about the day in court! That'll go down in history. Thanks for the chance to win... I hope whomever wins decides to tell us what was in the basket (unless you took a 'before' photo before wrapping everything!)

This is so fun.

Matt and Blair said...

I linked up with a post that had pictures of our daughter at one year. I love that kid!

Amdierm said...

I'm still super new to blogging - but couldn't pass up the chance for winning a tasty treat! Enjoyed looking at all the posts :)

Kathleen said...

Oh, all right, I'll link up. (you got me with that Nordstrom box...:)

I had to link up my birth story of my son from this year. While it's not a stellar sample of my writing, it was certainly the most memorable event of last year for me.

stacey said...

this was a fun "assignment" for me (even at 5 AM when I couldn't sleep)! I had a few options but I am glad I could read through some old posts and link up - a good experience even if I don't win the awesome prize! Thanks, love your blog!

Rach said...

I love this one thank you for doing this. I read my posts and thought I should do a book, So thanks to you I have one started thank you.

Anna said...

I have no idea if I did this right, but it was really fun! My favorite post from this last year was from my wedding reception. Such a fun day and such wonderful pictures as a reminder!
