Giveaway is now closed, I'll be announcing the winner in just a bit!
Welcome to Distant Pickles!
If this is your first time here then welcome, glad to meet you!
If you've been here before then hello friend, good to see you again!
In a comment on one of the posts last week I was asked about our blog name. I realized then that Bree and I have never explained how we know each other or how our little blog came to be!
I figured now would be a great day to tell everybody since we'll hopefully make lots of new friends today :)
Well, I started to type out the whole long story but then realized, y'all are here for a giveaway! So I'm going to just get to the key points.
We met in an online community for women who were pregnant and expecting in September of 2008. We've maintained a friendship through our pregnancies and over the past 2 and a half years of our toddler's lives. Coincidentally, we gave birth on the same day so our toddlers share a birthday!
We chat online daily and via email. We discovered that we both shared a love of sewing and quilting and general craftiness and she asked me one day if I would like to do a blog with her, and of course I said yes!
When trying to come up with a name, we asked a lot of our other "friends-in-a-box" for suggestions but Bree ultimately came up with Distant Pickles. Her reasoning? We met when we were pregnant and pregnant women like pickles, and because we are distant from each other, physically of course. She lives two states away.
So Distant Pickles was born!
One day we hope to be Not so Distant Pickles. That's right, we've never actually met. Don't worry, when we do you guys will be one of the first to know!
Now for the giveaway, because that's what you're all here for right?
Today I have up for grabs
A Sunkissed charm pack!
Because it's Spring and what says Spring better than Sunkissed?
I'm also throwing in a handmade goodie to be named at a later date because, well, I lost my sew-jo these past couple of weeks and I'm a little bit behind on finishing it up.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment! I'm not going to make you jump through any hoops. I won't make you become a follower. I won't even make you blog or tweet or post on Facebook about this.
I have hopes that you'll take a look around while you're here and if you like what you see, then you'll click on that "Follow" button over there :)
So leave us a comment, but make it a good one. Tell me a joke, or your "how I met so and so" story. Or give me a good recipe, my dinner menu has been sorely lacking lately.
I'll leave the giveaway open until 11:59 PM Eastern time on May 25th. If I'm still awake at midnight then I'll draw a winner then via Random.org. If I'm lucky enough to get the toddler in bed at a decent hour then I'll draw when I wake up on the 26th ;) International visitors are welcome to enter too!
Please make sure to leave me a way to contact you. If you are a no-reply blogger then leave your email address in your comment please.
