2Y - Birthday Bash Giveaway # 1

I am so excited to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of DFW Craft Shows, but I'm also flabbergasted to think that it has only been two years since we began this journey together.  Since then, the site has gone through a few changes, but one thing remains the same:  DFWCraftShows will forever be free.  

And on that note, I'd like to take the time to thank everyone who has given their support through donations, ad space, listing upgrades, and even taking a few minutes out of their busy schedule to submit and share show information.  Your help, to share shows with us and to share the site with your friends, is what is keeping us going strong.  Many of you know how rough things have been on the other side of this computer screen and I thank you all for your support and encouragement.  Thank you  for always giving me a place to turn, a place to be amongst friends.  

Without further ado...


It seems only fair that the first giveaway come from the woman who made you sit through all that sap, so here it is.  Yours truly, owner and operator of DFW Craft Shows, is giving away a $50 Gift Card to Hobby Lobby.


How to enter: Simply leave a comment on the site (due to the new Facebook Page Guidelines, we can no longer accept entries on Facebook) and tell us what you would use the gift card for. For a BONUS entry, share this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter (don't forget to tag us, @dfwcraftshows) and comment again below letting us know that you have done so. Please don't forget to leave an email address, if I cannot contact you then you cannot collect your prize!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Sunday, March 25th. Winners will be announced no later than the evening of Monday, March 26th, 2011. US Entries only.

Congrats to keshakeke, you have won the $50 Gift Card to Hobby Lobby!
