I've been inspired... a lovely fellow blogger.

She won a contest, and then thought it

would be fun to host her own.

The prize: a custom holiday card design!

They are adorable; you really should check them out.

So, I've decided to steal her idea {thanks Cynthia}, and host my very own contest for my faithful blog readers. Because well, you deserve something nice. Sounds like fun, huh? I think so. My prize isn't anything creative like a custom holiday card design, but I'm pretty sure you're gonna like what I have for you.

Etsy is one of my favorite sites to shop. Let's just say I've got a slight addiction to the website. Don't even look at the link if you aren't prepared to blow all of your money. I'm serious. Don't do it. Anyway, why do I bring up Etsy? Well, because, I found these lovelies for you there:


They are called coffee cozy sleeves and are found here and here. I love them! What a creative idea. I thought they would go along perfectly with a $5 gift card to:


Noah is pretty excited about this contest idea. He's rooting for you!

Ok. So here is how you can win. Really, it's pretty simple.

Leave me a comment on the blog
{not Facebook so I can keep them in order}
telling me what you are most thankful for.

That's all. I told you it's easy.

Comment and then you're entered in {guys, don't be shy!}.

You have until 11:59 pm November 19th, 2009,
and then Mr. Noah will pick the winner!

If a guy wins, he'll get the brown coffee cozy,
and if a girl wins, she'll get the pink one,
or you can have whichever one you choose.

Good luck!

Yeah baby! Free stuff! ; ) What a cute idea. I have a blog but I don't post regularly enough to encourage faithful readership. If I ever get to that point, I might try this. I'll add you to my list of blogs to read. BTW...Noah is PRECIOUS!

Andi Satterfield said...

First off let me say that I LOVE to read your blog! I am most thankful for my children and my God:) Hope you are doing good Libby!

Angie said...

Wow! What a cute idea! You always have a creative that inspires us and of course, I LOVE to read your blog! I am thankful for our Father in heaven, our family that MOST important in my life! :) (Can't wait to see you all this weekend!) OILY

Ah Libby- Noah's the cutest little thing. I thought, why not, let's try our luck- I get Starbucks quite a bit, I'd love this sleeve thing. I may even go to Etsy and buy them as gifts!

I am so grateful to God for being where I am today- a stay at home mom to my 4 fabulous kids and several accomplishments that I am proud of.

Cynthia Meeks said...

Hey! Thanks for linking to me! These cup sleeves are so cute and I would like one, so let me tell you what I am thankful for...

My husband and Hutton of course, but mostly for Jesus who is my savior!

This is fun, isn't it?

Melanie Lyons said...

I will not look at etsy, I will not look at etsy...

I'm most thankful to serve a gracious God, am thankful my family and amazing friends (even the ones that move away!) and I'm thankful for Blogs so we can dote on each other's babies.

Pick me Noah Pick me!

chriselda said...

etsy is EVIL

and i'm right there getting these sleeves now

i'm thankful for all SORTS of things, but i'd have to say that i have recently become incredibly thankful of my family - despite their imperfections. because i don't know what life would be without them.

Honnah Taylor said...

Libby, You are so cute and so very creative!

I'm thankful for all the Blessings in my life. My family, my husband, my friends, my job...
I'm so thankful for what God has in store for my life as well. He has shown me some incredible things over the past couple of days!

HOpe all is well Libby! Tell your family hi for me! :)

Carissa McCarter said...

This one is easy...I am most thankful for my daughter Aliyah, because I didn't know what true, selfless love was until she came into my life. And I'm very thankful for my husband Britt, because I would not have my daughter without him!!

My family...I only wish I saw them more! But thats another reason Thanksiving (the holidays) is the best, I get to see everyone!

Cute idea Lib...


Linda P. said...

Hi, Libby! This sounds like a fun idea! I am most thankful that because of what my dear Savior Jesus Christ has done for me that I will NEVER die. Oh, this old body will give out one day, but the real me will never die. I will just "change addresses," go to my heavenly mansion, and get a brand new indestructible body! I will then live eternally with my dear Lord in a wonderful place He has prepared for me! I am so thankful for His love.

Kasey said...

Libby this is such a wonderful idea!

I would have to say that I'm most thankful for my beautiful daughter that is our precious miracle given from God. Also I'm thankful for my very supportive husband that's there behind me 100%. Last but never ever the least, I'm thankful for the friends that I have come across through my journey in life, for without them I would not be the person that I am today.

Kasey said...

might I just add that I meant friends AND family......and no I promise that I'm not trying to make a second entry into the contest. LOL!

Sarah said...

I am most thankful for my healthy, happy baby girl and my sweet and supportive husband....and The Gracious God that gave me both!!

Ah, super cute!! Please, count me in! I'd love one for my morning cup of coffee at work!!
I have so much to be thankful for, but I'm definitely thankful for my husband. He's been such an amazing support and encouragement lately! Plus, he can always make me laugh!
Thanks for doing this Libby!

sarah said...

I love Etsy, too! I haven't actually bought anything yet, but I regularly "window shop".

Of course there are lots of things I'm thankful for, but most recently I have become thankful for the peacefulness of nature. I was never much of a nature person growing up, but Augustine wants to be outside everyday - rain or shine! After spending so much time outside with him, I've learned that spending a little time outside everyday can be calming, rejuvenating and inspiring.

Kimberly Mingus said...

I am thankful for this post! Now I know what to get several people for Christmas!!

Thanks :)

Sarah Brown said...

LOL I think this is the most comments you have had on a post. Since I said earlier on another comment what I'm thankful for I'll be short. My family.

Noah's support is so nice. hee hee (not that I'm trying to butter you up or anything)

Erica Nye said...

I am most thankful for my two boys, Chad and Walker, but especially Thankful for my second chance at life that God gave me after having my stroke when I was 28. Chances are that I would have another one within five years and it has been 7 1/2.

Laterah said...

What a fantastic idea Libby! You are always so creative and I love the picture you have at the top of te page!

What don't we have to be thankful for? At the top of my list is my precious Emily. I thank God everyday for blessing me with such an amazing daughter. She has really shown me what life can be. I am thankful for a loving family to bring her into and an amazing church to help me through tough times.

mom.... said...

deWell, I just got back from taking "the kids"(ha) from a walk and I was enjoying the beauty of God's creation. I am thankful for that and for a healthy body to be able to walk and see his creation. But most I am thankful for His goodness and mercy...for His blessing of my husband, kids and my granson Noah. Thank you Lord for all these blessings!

mom said...

Not thankful for all my typing errors..te he..

Dad said...

Dad says.....
I am thankful for each new day that God gives us. I thankful for my family and friends. I thankful for the good health that I have. I thankful for the freedom that we have as Americans. But as your Mom said I am most thankful for for wonderful wife, kids(also Josh), and my walking grandson Noah. Thanks Libby and great idea.
