We’ve reached our 100th post and to celebrate you, our lovely followers we are doing a giveaway! We are so honored to have reached our 100th post and we wouldn’t be doing it without you here to read our ramblings. We’ve had a lot of ups, like the day we FINALLY figured out how to cut glass and downs, like the day I spent six hours trying to figure out how to get a Pinterest button on my posts only to realize that it WAS ALREADY THERE. We’ve learned so much along the way (Safety Gogles for one, can’t be stressed enough).

We launched this blog in April of last year purely out of a need for entertainment (because I fell off a porch and ended up bed ridden for two months) and we’ve had so much fun with it since then. Sometimes it’s all consuming, and sometimes it’s a quiet buzz, bit it’s always there. During the creating of this blog we have pushed our creative limits and had a more than few creative fails, greatly enhanced our IT abilities, see above- Pinterest Button and expanded our DIY skill set to incredible heights. As we prepare to launch our store Shop Idyllwild we wish to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for letting us bring you on this crazy sometimes drunken journey we have embarked on.

It’s a new year and a new Idyllwild, resolutions blah, blah, blah… (no carbs – grrr) so you can all look forward to a few subtle changes in our blogging, and a few tweeks to our content, but don’t worry, it will still be us, only better! I just finished reading a great blogging book By Ruth Soukup of Living Well Spending Less called How to Blog For Profit Without Selling Your Soul and I have learned a lot from it, the biggest one is ‘be yourself (I probably already knew that, but sometimes we need a reminder.) Now, I don’t know that we ever will be “blogging for profit” at the moment we blog for love or boredom, sometimes for food. Jokes aside, the book still had a lot of really great info in it and if you, like me are new to blogging I would recommend getting a copy ASAP!

Now, on to the giveaway!! For todays giveaway we will be hooking you up with an Idyllwild Designs Swag Pack including one of our One Love Bracelets in your choice of silver or gold, a Flights of Fancy jewelry box PLUS a few fun one off pieces created by us. It’s like an Idyllwild Designs grab bag! The possibilities are endless, (maybe even pet monkey endless… or not) and our lucky winner will be the first person besides us to get a sneak peek at some of our new inventory!
