{Giveaway} 100 Posts!

**This Giveaway is now closed.**

I remember writing my very first blog entry and wondering what in the world I was going to say. And here we are 100 posts later, and I can't seem to shut up! I also wondered who in the world would be so brain dead to want to read what I have to say about design, and travels, and fashion and cheap DIY home projects?!

As it turns out, a few of you! And while I write this blog as my own valium creative outlet, I'm so grateful that you take the time to read it....and even more so when you leave your comments and feedback.

My family has grown so accustomed to my the oddities of writing a blog that they don't even comment when they see me painting sticks:

100_0814

Or in an unflattering crouch to get the perfect shot of a dessert:

100_0396

Or getting them to take a picture of my outfit:

aqua

Or pulling soup cans out of the trash:

100_9586

Or posing them for pictures on trips:

my heart

Maybe because they've also been on the receiving end of my manic projects.

One guy got a new room:

The kids got a new bathroom:

after 7

We've all reaped the benefits of a new kitchen:

after 7

And the Sugarplum house is a little prettier overall:

Mr. Sugarplum says he's proud of the work I'm doing, but I think he's mostly grateful I'm not chattering on about fabric and ModPodge to him anymore! I have an outlet...and an audience! Lucky you. (I've also met some really great people through this blogland community.) To express his relief support, he's giving up a $50 gift card to one of my readers!! {thanks babe!}

You have two ways to win:
1) Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite topics to read on this blog (Outfit Inspirations, Crafts, Room Makeovers, Weekend Recaps, Food, Trips, etc.) I'm curious as to what floats your boat.
2) Become a follower of Hi Sugarplum! and leave a comment saying as such. If you are already following, you are my favorite thanks! And leave me a comment telling me so.

I'll keep the Giveaway open until Sunday, October 17 at noon, and announce the random winner Monday. Oh, and the winner gets to choose a $50 gift card to their favorite retailer! Target, Home Goods, JCrew, Anthropologie, Condom Sense, Michaels...you get the idea. As long as there is a location within 5 miles of my house near me, it's yours! Good luck, and thanks friends!

  5. Hi! Seriously (I'm not sucking up or anything), I love the whole blog and Hi Sugarplum got me into the whole DIY and "making the best home possible" projects. My favorite would have to be the room makeovers though. I drool like an idiot over here when I see your before and after pictures! I also get a good laugh at the thoughts your cross out. Funny stuff. Have a good day, Cassie!

  17. I'm sadly one of those people that walk into a retail store looking for an outfit - and leave empty handed - I have NO clue as to how to put an outfit together. I'm a nurse - so it's either scrubs or khaki capris and tee's for me :( - I love your fashion inspiration and outfits!

  68. I'm such a follower.

    To be perfectly honest, I'm pretty amazed at your home decor postings. I like the step-by-step descriptions, and I'm a big fan of the before/after shots.

    Ever thought about filming some of these steps for some youtube action??

    ReplyDelete
  69. I truly enjoy your blog and appreciate your almost daily postings! I have been following Sugarplum for a while :-)

    My favorite things about your blog are your humor within the postings, craft projects, and home decorating makeovers! I agree with a previous poster who suggested that you make demonstration videos for your blog!
