1st Year Anniversary Giveaway and Blog Hop


Hello everyone and welcome to this fun blog hop with many Rubber Dance stamps to win! Tjooohoo! 





It's Bibi here (owner of Rubber Dance), and today it's been exactly one year since I blogged about something I had made using Rubber Dance stamps! I cannot believe it's been a whole year already, but on the other hand - there has been a lot happening since then. Things really started moving after I had hired my very first Design Team in August last year, and with their help this blog rapidly changed from being a rather quiet place to quite a busy bee hive!

My Design Team members
have made so many beautiful things with my stamps, helped spread the word out there in blogland (and beyond), and they've been such a great support in more ways than I can count. I'd be way up creek without a paddle without them! ♥ Love you guys! ♥

From zero readers to nearly 40.000 hits in just one year - that's pretty awesome!



And if you're curious where all those readers live, here's another stats report
(we have readers from many more countries than these, but the Alltime History Stats shows the top 10 only)

(During this first year, only 2 out of all those people from my homecountry Norway have left a comment on my blog... where are you guys??)


This blog wouldn't be such a fun playground without all our readers, of course, so now that I celebrate my own 1st year blogging anniversary, YOU the readers are the best gift a blogger could dream of!! Therefore it's only natural that the anniversary gifts goes to you, and the best gifts I can give back to this blog's readers are of course Rubber Dance stamps. I know you love'em. I know you want'em! ;-)

Each member of my Design Team have chosen 3 of their own favorite DT makes for their blog posts today, and will also let you know which 3 are their favorite single stamps. 3 seems to be the lucky number here, so let's have 3 winners, too!

  • TWO lucky winners drawn at random will win my Design Team members' favourite stamps! 
  • ONE additional winner who shares this gift giveaway on Facebook gets a €20 voucher (approximately $25) to spend in the Rubber Dance webshop any time she wants! Just tell me that you have shared it when you leave a comment below, and you're in! I trust you ♥

 How's that for some nice anniversary gifts, ey? ;-)

If more than one DT member like the same stamp, I will replace those with some of my own faves to avoid duplicates in the prize. If the winners own any of the prize stamps from before, they can pick their own faves to replace those.

To participate in this blog hop giveaway, all you have to do is to visit the DT's posts below and leave a comment on all of them, as well as a comment on this one. It'll just take a few minutes of your time. You do not have to be a follower of the blogs in our hop, but you're of course very welcome to become one -  if you aren't already.

Hop along and see the Design Team's fave DT makes and fave three Rubber Dance stamps:

  3. Hi Bibi, congrats on your first anniversary. Wow, you have done great. I can't believe only two people from Norway have left comments after all those hits. I am still trying to work out how to get people who visit just for a look (I call that lurking and am guilty myself sometimes) to leave comments. I predict lots of comments on this post LOL. I counted four fabulous makes and your comment made me laugh so thanks for that. Your stamps are gorgeous and I wish you every success and many more comments. Hugz
