We are here to celebrate post #200. YIPPEEE!!! How are we going to celebrate you ask???? Well, by doing a couple of give-a-ways. You can win by one of two ways. The first way was an idea I stumbled upon over on another blog recently. In order to win, you MUST play. The first way you can win is by guessing how many AGD sewing labels are in this glass bowl. The person to guess the correct # or to come the closest will win either a custom made AGD ensemble of their choosing (from the sets readily available) or a custom made jewelry piece (bracelet or necklace) from the readily available AGD collection as well. You can view most of the readily available collection at our ETSY and EBAY locations. In order to guess the amount of labels, you must post your guess below by scrolling to the bottom of this update and clicking on the "comments" link that is in really small print. It will give the number of comments posted thus far right in front of it. For example - it could say 0 comments or 12 comments, etc. You will click there and then scroll down to the area that reads "NAME/URL." Check that box if you don't have your own blog and are a visitor. You will fill in your name there. Skip the URL box if you don't have a website or anything. Then, scroll back up and put your "guess" or your amount of labels in the comment section box. Please DO NOT forget to leave your name and the state/country you reside. If you don't want to leave your full last name, please leave the first initial of your last name. It will help us identify you better should you win. The contest will run from Monday until tonight at 9pm. At 9pm - Indiana time - on Tuesday, I'll stop all entries and leave a "cut off" confirmation post here on the blog above this post. The winner will then be announced here sometime on Wednesday, March 12th. If you are the winner, you will be given your choice in either a custom boutique set for little girls or a custom jewelry design from AGD.
The 2nd chance you have to win is just by participating. For every person that leaves a "guess" on the # of labels under our comment section to this post, you'll be entered into a drawing. Each person who places a guess will have their name written on a sheet of paper and entered into this drawing. The drawing will take place after 9pm tomorrow night (Tuesday evening) once all guesses are in and logged in the comment section. On Wednesday, I'll have Brennen draw a name from the bowl and we'll announce the winner of the bowl drawing when we announce the winner of the "label guessing." It will all be announced here sometime on Wednesday. If your name is drawn and you win the bowl drawing, you will win an AGD price pack similar to the one you see in the photo below. (One T-Shirt, a hoodie, mousepad, and compact purse mirror, AGD logo necklace, etc.) You've got to play to win though. You must leave a guess with your first name and the first initial to your last name in order to be eligible. While leaving your guess, if you'd like to send a shout out to AGD and let us know how you came to know us and what you like best about us, that would be great. I'm expecting all of the blog stalkers, lurkers, regular commenters, new visitors, old visitors, family, friends, customers, etc. to play. Let's see how many participants we can rack up. I have a blog tracker that proves hundreds of you are reading this blog each day. It's time to introduce yourself now. Have fun and good luck!
Thanks for the 200 posts thus far and the many more to come in the future.
Blessings, Angie Seaman

Blogger Angie (Angelica Grace Designs) said...

Oh this is getting good guys. Just keep em' coming. I believe someone asked way back last night how many times you can guess. The answer is just one guess. Also, should we have multiple people that guess the exact same number and it's the correct number of labels, we will pronounce the winner by way of a drawing with those others names in the bowl who also guessed the correct/same number. Make sense?

This is so fun. Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments and compliments thus far. You guys are da' best! :)

Can't wait for the winners to be announced tomorrow. (Wednesday)
Again, good luck and have fun!

Hi Angie- My guess is 157. I am also terrible at this sort of thing:) I wanted to say thank you for your blogs. They are truly inspirational.

Thanks to all of you who participated. I can't believe the turn out. I knew we'd never get "all" of the lurkers out of the closet but I never guessed we'd get as many as we did that came forth. I'll be back tomorrow to announce the two winners. I myself, haven't even counted the labels yet. Therefore, I'm off to do that and also have Brennen draw a name from all that placed a guess. Again, thank you for everything. This was so much fun! Check back tomorrow for the names of the winners to be announced! Even more fun to come.....
Blessings, Angie
