300 Pinterest Followers = Diddle Dumpling's First Ever GIVEAWAY!


Today when I hopped onto Pinterest to scope out what my friends have been pinning, I happened to see that I now have 300 people following my boards!  Is it silly that this makes me really happy??  Because it does!
I admit, I use Pinterest for solely selfish reasons and not as a way to grow a business or build a blog following or anything like that.  Not that those aren't totally legitimate and SMART ways to use it, I just haven't gotten there yet.
I scavenge for inspiration in decorating and DIY projects, simple and delicious recipes, fashion and beauty tips, and tricky ideas that I never would have thought of but want to remember so I can use them someday.  Pinterest has changed the way I search the internet!
As a sort of little celebration for my 300 Pinterest followers milestone, I thought I'd host my FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY here on my blog!  I've never done this before, so bear with me folks.
First of all, here's what I'll be giving away to one of you readers:
Okay, now stick with me here.  I tried to come up with something that I could give away that would be really cool and exciting and completely AWESOME, but decided that instead of just sending one thing, how about a whole BOX of things?!!
I've scoured my house and stashes of goodies and have compiled a collection of darling little things that I think (hope) anyone would love to get in the mail!  I don't want to ruin the surprise, but everything included in your box will be something that I have thrifted or picked up because I liked it.  It will include things that are simply cute and decorative, vintage and new, as well as things that you can use to create whatever you'd like!  A lot of the items I'll send are things that I collect and want to share with you!
Is it sounding better yet? 
I hope so.  :)
So here's what you need to do:
1.  Enter a comment here on the blog including a valid e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.  If you don't want to submit your e-mail address you'll need to pay close attention when the winner is announced so you can contact ME. 
2.  Not a follower on Pinterest?  Follow me and comment here that you've done that so you can get a second entry!
3.  Already a Pinterest follower?  Thank you!  Tell me so in a comment for your second entry! 
I'll choose a random comment as the winner on
