A Big, Important Announcement & GIVEAWAY!!

365 days.  12 months.  It has been 1 year since My Mind's Lens came to be!  All I wanted was to have somewhere to share my photography, but I have found much more than that.  Over the last year, I have received hundreds of comments and had thousands of page views.  I have also met fellow bloggers, many of who have been extremely encouraging, and found inspiration in others.

To celebrate this milestone, I am excited to announce my first-ever hosted giveaway!  The 1st Blogiversary Giveaway will run from 06/16 until 06/21.  You will have a little less than one week to get to know these wonderful ladies and check out their blogs.  In turn, you will receive entries for this great package of prizes.

Now, to meet the lovely co-hosts!

button Kelley @ One Southern Hot Mess : Hey Ya'll! I'm Kelley a girl from the south that is addicted to diet coke, carbs, sale racks, my friends & family and mildly obsessed with my bulldog Mia.

Julie @ A Beautiful Day:I started blogging...sometimes sporadically, over two years ago. I blog about whatever is currently going on at the time - life, scrapbooking, party decorations, my son Zachary (my heart and soul), and my two furbabies Jack & Jessi.

I recently got a DSLR camera....that I have been wanting forever....I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!!!!!!! I imagine that posts regarding my journey to get that baby off of AUTO will start to show up. Please stop by and say hi....I love to meet new bloggers, and don't forget to let me know that Kaeley sent you!

Scattered Horizons Emily @ Scattered Horizons Photography: I am a twenty-something amateur nature and landscape photographer from the Pacific Northwest. For me, the journey to capture natural beauty with my camera is just as important as the picture itself.

I am currently doing a Reverse 365 where I edit a photo a day from last year and a Project 52 where I take a photo a week. I also host a weekly link-up called Tones on Tuesday where you can share any photo that you take and alter the tones. I would love to see your comments and photos on my blog so I can visit in return! When I am not out photographing I am a kindergarten teacher who loves to read, travel and see a good movie!

Kalyn @ Life as I Pretend to Know It: I'm Kalyn, the writer behind Life as I Pretend to Know It, which I honestly thought would be something only my mom would ever read. I'm so happy to be part of this giveaway for Kaeley! I'm an LPN (licensed practical nurse) from Alabama, working on getting my RN. I enjoy dancing in the rain and being happy all of the time! Kidding.

I usually tend to blog about real life stuff like what it's really like to be a nurse and random thoughts I have while at the gym. I can't promise many fashion, cooking, or DIY posts, but you can find out what it's like living with boys or your in-laws. I take a shameless amount of selfies and enjoy singing karaoke probably more than your average 23 year old. Every day I try to have as much fun as possible and this blog is just a way for me to document everything life throws my way.

My Memory ArtAdrienne @ My Memory Art: I'm new member of the 'empty nester' club, and happy about it! I've got a lovely, married daughter...a 'new to the work force' son...and a grand-puppy. By day, I'm an office manager. Nights and weekends are for family, scrapbooking, photography, walking, writing, camping....and blogging - of course!

Prizes include:

*One 8x10 photo from My Mind's Lens (will be given a choice of prints)
*"Something More" ad space from One Southern Hot Mess (includes 175*170 in-post ad, social media shout-outs and take over Kelley's blog for a day!)
*$10 Starbucks Card from A Beautiful Day
*$10 Giftcard from Scattered Horizons Photography
*$10 Target Giftcard from Life As I Pretend to Know It
*Custom 8x8 scrapbook from My Memory Art (choice of theme - all you have to do is insert your photos!)

So, lovely blogger friends, go visit these wonderful ladies and make sure you let them know that you found them here. We will announce the giveaway winner here next week. Good Luck!!
