Afternoons with Amy is 1 Year Old today! (And a giveaway!!)

Spread the love


I can’t believe it has been one year today since I started this blog and published my first post! The time has gone by so fast! I hope that I have accomplished what I intended for this blog to be. For me to be able to share with you a little about my journey and also to encourage you and give you support along the way.

I have truly enjoyed sharing myself with all of you this past year. I have published 197 posts, including 30 different recipes, several craft how-to’s, my new series called Dollars & Sense on saving money, book lists & reviews, along with tons of great ideas for families, kids, homeschooling and education.

In order to celebrate the one year birthday of Afternoons with Amy, I am proudly hosting my first giveaway! I have been planning this for awhile and am very excited about it!

First of all, I am going to be giving away two different book sets. Please keep in mind that these are used books, but they are ones that I dearly love and cherish and I hope that someone else will enjoy them as well. Second, you may know that my hubby and I have recently gotten into making crafts and have done several craft fairs over the last year. We named our business Handmade Crafts by AJ. We mostly make wood crafts and ceramic coasters. So I am going to be giving away 3 of our handmade ceramic coaster sets.

Here are the items I am offering in the giveaway:





I will be doing 5 different giveaways:

  1. Polka dot handmade coaster set of 4
  2. Watercolor handmade coaster set of 4
  3. Blue/Purple Flower handmade coaster set of 4
  4. Children’s book set of 7 different books (these are all Five in a Row books)
  5. Set of 3 of E.B. White’s classics, The Trumpet of the Swan, Stuart Little & Charlotte’s Web


I am a simple girl and so I am going to be handling the giveaway in a very simple way. It’s really easy…all I’m asking you to do if you want to enter the drawing is to comment below this post and just say that you entered the giveaway. You may choose to sign up for my blog’s weekly newsletter (located at the right on my homepage) and if you do, please include that in your comment and I will automatically give you two entries in the drawing. For those who are already signed up for my newsletter, you will already have an extra entry.

I am simply going to write your names down and put them in a bowl and have each of my kids draw a name out. I will keep the drawing open for one week, so we will do the drawing one week from today on Tuesday, March 21st. I will then publish the winners and I will contact each winner by your email address in order to get your mailing address to send the prizes to.

That sounds simple enough, but if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! I hope that you have been enjoying my blog and I’m excited about the next year to come! God Bless all of you!

Many blessings,
