Bambi Turns TWO! Let's Celebrate with a Giveaway!

Hey y'all!
I can't believe its been two years since I started this venture. You may have noticed that I have slowed down a bit lately... don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. I just got bogged down with the holidays and with an eye issue (still getting that needle every month, ugh). Things should be back up and running on a regular basis soon - with a few new additions!

First, I am adding a cooking feature to the blog. One of my new years resolutions is to go back on the Paleo diet and try to stick with it. I feel so much better when I am eating non-processed organic foods, but I tend to get lazy and get tired of cooking. So I am hoping to hold myself accountable this year!

One of the biggest obstacles to paleo for me is that you HAVE to cook all the time. And cooking for one person is hard! Especially when you aren't a huge fan of leftovers. They just never taste as good to me. So I will be trying a number of Paleo recipes this year and I hope to add one per week to the blog. They may be a big success or a total pinstrosity, and many will be recipes that are non-paleo that I have adapted with paleo ingredients. I should have my first success by this weekend... and it is super yummy. So stay tuned!

Second, my goal this year is to get crafty! I have been turned onto the world of paper planning and papercraft, so I hope to include some of that on the blog. I will likely throw up a Plan With Me feature on Sundays in combination with the Stacking the Shelves meme. Much like the cooking feature, this will be full of projects and fails with the planner and my newly purchased Silhouette! 

I also have a number of pieces of furniture that I bought for the purpose of refinishing, and they have been sitting here sad and ugly without being beautified. So my goal is to get started on that this year as well, and it's sure to make for some entertaining and profanity-laden blog posts!

So please let me express my gratitude for everyone that stops by my corner to read my nonsense! My book reviews will continue as I remain a reader at heart, and you will also be seeing some guest reviews from Julie as well! I will cut back on the books just a smidge so that I can complete all these projects and goals, but you will still see regular reviews from me and I hope to have them on a specific schedule soon.

So to express my appreciation for everyone who has stuck around, and all you new people dropping by Bambi's corner... LET'S HAVE A GIVEAWAY! I have to limit this giveaway to US residents due to the insane shipping costs out of the country. Enter via the Rafflecopter below, and tell your friends!
