Happy Birthday Technique Junkies!

Well, we did it! TEN YEARS. I started the Newsletter in October 2002 and here we are 10 years later! Ten year of newsletters under our belts. Lots of techniques, lots of fun!

So, what better way to celebrate our birthday month -- let's do a giveaway every day during the month of October! And what better to give away than the GREAT GIFTS CD.

The Candy Nugget Layer Cake shown above is one of the 40 Gift tutorials on the CD. Isn't this a fun gift to bring to a friend for their birthday (who doesn't love chocolate!)? Kids love it too, and think how cute this is Halloween themed. So much fun!

The CD is $14.95, and can be ordered on my side bar or from HERE. The Great Gifts page has an picture index of each of the gift items that are in the CD, too, so you can see exactly what is on there.

Now, one lucky person will win the CD! If you order the CD today and win, or if you have already ordered it, you can receive your money back OR get another CD in it's place. Your choice!

To enter, simply leave a comment on my blog, and make sure to include your email address. I will be posting the winner tomorrow morning at 10am -- so I can make way for tomorrow's giveaway!

Happy Birthday to us!

Update: Congratulations to Robbie Rubala -- she is the winner of the Great Gifts CD!
