A Giveaway to Celebrate my One-Year Blog-Anniversary!

I've been so busy with packing, moving, organizing and renovating our new home that I almost forgot that my blog's one year anniversary is today!  I can't believe it has been a whole year since my very first post!    I never imagined how much fun this blog would be.  It has given me a place to develop my hobby, learn from others and to be inspired by the ultra talented cookie and cake decorators out there!

I want to say a huge thanks to all my readers for their loyal support and for making "The Baking Sheet" such a fun place for me to share my goodies.
I hope you will continue my journey with me as I am expecting a lot of great stuff for 2011! 

And to start things off with a bang.....

**~~~A GIVEAWAY!! ~~~**

One lucky reader will win all these goodies............

1) A copy of the fabulous book, "1000 Ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cookies & Cakes"

2)   4 pc "Tea Party" Stainless Steel Cookie Cutter Set
3)  Wilton 4 pc Nesting "Butterfly" Cookie Cutter Set
 
And a little something for Valentine's Day...
4)  Wilton 3 pc Heart Cookie Cutter set and Jumbo Heart-Shaped Sprinkles!


There are two ways to enter:

Entry #1: You must be a public follower of The Baking Sheet.
Leave a comment (below) just to say hello and please include your email address, otherwise if you win I won't have a way to contact you.
