{a la} spring! // a 900 follower giveaway [CLOSED]



[SORRY, THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY!]

lucia, etc.


So, I logged into my blogger dashboard yesterday and was totally expecting to still see the number '8' in my follower count. I never really thought I would get above 800 this year--but hey, I never thought I would get above ten when I first started blogging two years ago. I guess I was wrong. And it made me smile. :)

So thank you, friends, for surprising me and supporting me and following along with my words, my photos, my...life. Blogging is more than just a hobby; a random thing someone does because they're bored. Blogging forces you to find creativity in the smallest moment, it drives you to photograph differently--with inspiration. It takes time, thought, mind-perusing, energy, and most of all: encouragement.

You have been that encouragement, and I thank you.

So what do I do to actually show that I mean my "thank you's?" Duh! I have a giveaway, of course! And not just any giveaway. This one is big, yet not too big, has something for everyone [from the sweet tooth to the fashionista], and has some *ahem* pretty awesome prizes. It is all thanks to my sponsors, too, whom you shall meet below. Please give them some love; they are the best!

So. Read the directions carefully [ just FYI, only followers of "Lucia, Etcetera" can enter this one--only because it's to say "thank you" to my readers!], make sure not to riot in the streets or flood the sponsors too much with admiration [okay, that is allowed], and...let the games begin! ;)

// TO ENTER, or the basics // 

Leave one separate comment for the mandatory entry. Once this is done, you can start on the extra entries! Leave a separate comment for each entry you complete; one comment for each number. I.e., if it says "two entries," for liking me on Facebook, leave two comments saying you liked me on Facebook. Simple, yes?

// THE PRIZES & their sponsors //
