TattingChic's 50,000 Visitors Celebration Giveaway!!!

Hello everyone! I have some very exciting news to share with you! My visitor counter is getting very close to 50,000! Woo Hoo! I have only been blogging for shortly over a year so I think this is cause for celebration, don't you?

Well, yes, it is!

You see, when I first started this blog I was so scared that no one would ever come and visit me. I was so surprised when I actually got a few comments on my first blog post! I was thrilled...ecstactic, actually! Really! As time has gone on I have found fabulous friendships, won giveaways, and learned a lot from so many of you! I want to give back to the blogging community! So, I've made a little something special just for this giveaway!


I made a button just for the big celebration!

blog giveaway
(It's my first button, hee hee
this is not the's just a picture of it.
The REAL button is on my sidebar!)


Let me show you what I have in store
for the lucky winner of my giveaway!
It's the book called "Learn to Tat" by Janette Baker
it comes with a free DVD that shows you how to tat!
If you already know how to tat, even some
experienced tatters have enjoyed making the
patterns out of this book. Besides, you could give
this book to someone who wanted to learn or
use it as a resource for them!


To go along with the book I'm tossing
in a faux tortoise shell (plastic) post-style
tatting shuttle and 10 yards-ish of size 10
Manuela brand green variegated thread!
This is everything you need to get you started
on your journey to learn how to tat!


I'll also give the winner this tatted heart.
It's from a Vintage "Workbasket Magazine"
tatting pattern. I tatted it myself about 16 years ago.
You like?
If you do I have one rule for this giveaway:
1) You need to have an active blog and
comment (just once, please) on this blog post!
(If you are reading this on multiply you need
to comment on the Blogger Blog)

That's it!

You are more than welcome to become
a follower, although it is not a requirement
to enter this giveaway! I'd love for you
to come back again and again!

Nothing like that.
Just comment (once) on this blog post to be entered
and have an active blog attached to the
profile that you comment from so that I can
notify you on your blog if you happen to be the
lucky winner!

You have until Midgnight PST
on Friday, July 31, 2009 to enter.
The winner will be announced on
Saturday, August 1, 2009

If you want to become a follower you
are more than welcome! I love my followers
and the "more the merrier" I say!

Would you like another chance to win?

Simply add the button on my right sidebar
to your
blog sidebar and comment one more
to let me know that you added the button.
(I'll be checking) :)


Here's how to add the button to your blogger blog:
(it's really easy, I promise)

1) Click on the "Customize" tab at the top of
your blog on the right.

2) This should take you to "layout"

3) Click on "Add a gadget" on your sidebar"

4) In the pop-up window that comes up
select "HTML/Javascript"

5) In the title bar write "TattingChic's Giveaway" or
simply leave it blank. That's totally up to you.

6) Now, copy the entire code underneath my
button on my right sidebar. (if my sidebar is not
showing up simply click on the title of this
blog post and it will show up on the right or
scroll down to the bottom of the blog
- just click on the title of this blog post -
it's easier!)

7) Paste the entire code in the "content"
portion of that gadget pop up window

8) Click on save!
Now my giveaway button shows up in your sidebar
ready to invite anyone who clicks on it to come on over
to this blog post and join in the giveaway fun!

9) Be sure to come back and comment
a second time
just to let me know that you
added the button and I will add you a second time.


That's it! That's all there is to it
to enter the giveaway!

Thank you for celebrating with me!


I just wanted to thank all my visitors for their lovely visits, comments, and friendships! I am grateful for all the joy that blogging has brought into my life! It's all because of you (my visitors) that I have a reason to celebrate!

Remember: You have until Midgnight PST on Friday, July 31, 2009 to enter. The winner will be announced on Saturday, August 1, 2009! In case you were wondering, yes, international friends are invited as well!

JOLENE said...

What a milestone...50,000 big ones. Congrats! Thanks for entering my La D Da giveaway. I tried to learn tatting when I was in my early 20's. Unfortunately, I got walking pneumonia during the time I was taking classes and I missed too many of them to get caught up. I love needle and theads, colors and textures! Would love the opportunity to learn a "lost art" of tatting. Good Luck!

Congratulations on your huge number of postings! I have been a fiber artist for years, but have never tried tatting, although one of my knitting instructors was good at it. I always wanted to go to Belgium to see the lace shops.

I added your button to my blog:

Thank you!

Oh wow, what a wonderful exciting giveaway!!! I would be honored to win any of those and you do know I HAVE to learn how to TAT one of these days!!!! It's on my TO DO list, but down near the bottom at the this could very well bring it up to the top! YIKES..but I'd love to join in and congrats TC!!!
Thanks for your sweet visit today...made me feel good. :) xo

TC, I think this is such a sweet offer, and I congratulate you on having 50,000 visits! WOW! That is a precious pink heart. I would love to read the book on tatting even though I have two left hands when it comes to needlework. LOL! I mainly admire that of other people, like you and my sister. She learned to tat from her husband's aunts.

Thanks for letting me know about your giveaway!

All the best...

I love your blog! And it's so nice to have you as my follower.
Take care,

50,000 - wow that's a lot of number :-) Congratulations!

Hhhmmm tatting, I love how they produce a much more delicate lace compared to crocheting (but I do enjoy simple crochet too!). It looks really difficult but learning it is worth it.

Oh wouldn't be nice to win something like this, complete with instructions and starting kit :-) Thanks for letting me know.

Anke said...

Well, now I have your button on my sidebar, too.

Hugs, Anke

Oh thanks for the heads-up that you were having this give away! I would LOVE,LOVE,LOVE to win ! I am going right now to put your button on my blog! Of course with this many interested people the chances are slim, but I am going to purchase that book and learn to tat using my grandmother's shuttle if I don't ever do anything else!

Julia said...

I just added your button to my sidebar. I first had to take the picture to my iphoto and then add it through the picture gadget thingy and then link it to your blog that way.

Congratulations on having 50,000 visitors to your blog. I would love to be included in your tatting giveaway. I've tried to learn to tat and just can't quite get it. Maybe if I won, the book would help.

I just discovered your blog through Lace Makers on stitchin fingers and I'll definitely be visiting again.

Turtle said...

wow that is quite the number of visitors on a young blog!!

I would love to win and learn to tat! I was foolish when i was 18 and had the opportunity to learn from a wonderful lady we called "granny button". She was 98 and willing to teach, and i was foolish and in know the drill! knitting i learned from a book, tatting may require a dvd!

Just posted your button on my blog....your gift is wonderful and you are so generous to do this

DanainDFW said...

No blogspot of my own, so I guess I'm not eligible to win, but just excited to find you. My grandmother had tatted items when I was a kid. Then I saw a demonstration at a tour of Victorian homes during the holidays one year. I signed up for a class, but it was cancelled. I tried to teach myself from a book but just made knots. Eventually I found a class and love to tat. I use a shuttle and love to find them in antique malls, etc.

Tutti Chic said...

I would love to get in on this drawing! I'm new to the blog world and no one notices me yet. I've been trying to learn to tat for a month now. I keep a tatting shuttle in my purse and ask co-workers if they know how to tat hoping for a lesson on the fly. Anyhow, thanks for the opportunity and feel free to stop by my blog at
