Thou Swell Turns One! iPad Mini & NextIssue Giveaway

Thou Swell Turns One! - iPad Mini & NextIssue Giveaway
(graphic created by Corina Nika for Thou Swell)

I can’t believe it’s been a year! I’m so grateful for the support, comments, tweets, mentions, likes, shares, follows, and love that all of you have given me over the past year. It’s been an amazing journey to watch my blog grow, changing my name to Kevin’s Crumbs, redesigning my site (twice), and finally switching over from Tumblr to WordPress. I’ve made over 150 posts over the year and it’s been so fun to explore my passion for interiors, design, food and entertaining with a live audience. I can’t wait to see where my blog takes me in year two – but I already know it’s gonna be great! While I’ve been out in California I’ve been dreaming up projects to do and post when I get back to Atlanta in December!

Next, I’d like to thank this incredible group of bloggers who have joined me to celebrate my blog’s birthday and bring you an amazing giveaway! We’re giving away an Apple iPad Mini (16GB Wifi) and a three month subscription to NextIssue, which will give the winner access to over 135 top magazines on their new iPad!

This giveaway is brought to you by:

  6. There is so much for you to celebrate! I still remember your blog when it was a little baby and I am so amazed at how it has grown. Without you, I would never have gotten into lifestyle blogging, which has since affected my life in such a positive way. We’ve both switched to different platforms, but Tumblr Lifestyle Bloggers for life! hahah *releases confetti* -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
