Happy birthday dear bento/craft/parenting blooooooog!
Happy birthday to you!
Hooray! Wendolonia is five today! Five years ago I started this blog with three readers (Hi Zach! Hi Mom! Hi Dad!), not much to say and nary a bento box or silicone baking cup in sight. Today, Wendolonia has 659 blog posts, over 1000 bento box photos, and thousands of readers and friends!
I am so happy to be a part of this fantastic community and so very thankful for all of you — my bloggy friends who make Wendolonia such a fun place to hang out every day. I appreciate every single person who comments on posts, joins in on our Facebook conversations, emails me thoughtful letters, or pins photos to Pinterest. And I love all of you lurkers out there too!
Today, I’d like to thank everyone by giving away a few bento goodies! As much as I’d like to send a little gift to everyone, that would be a financial and logistical nightmare so I’m going to have to limit myself to four giveaways.Â Take a look at the goodies I have selected for you:
First up is Bento Starter Pack #1! This box will include:
- 1 orange stacking bento box
- a package with star and heart shaped rice molds
- an orange bear bento belt
- 3 small wedge-shaped silicone cups
- a package of animal bento pics
- two larger silicon cups
Next, I have Bento Starter Pack #2. This box will contain:
- a bird-themed stacking bento box (I have had my box like this for several years and I pack Augie’s lunch in this about every other day)
- a package of colorful dot themed decorative picks
- a spherical rice ball mold
- animal faces cutters
- two large silicone cups
- 3 silicon bento box belts
I also have two smaller giveaways. Two people will each get either a large yellow or large orange silicone cup. These are one of my favorite bento supplies and they’re probably the item that I’m asked about most frequently. Until a few weeks ago I’d only ever seen one of them once at a Daiso store but then when I was shopping for this giveaway I found a rack of them and stocked up. These are perfectly sized to divide the large compartment of the popular Easy Lunchbox or other large food storage containers. You can see my green and blue ones in action on the Easy Lunchbox page of the Bento Box Gallery.
How to Enter:
Entering this giveaway is easy as pie! Leave a comment below telling me something you’d like to see more of on Wendolonia in the next five years. If you can’t think of something just say anything you want.
There’s no need to follow me on Facebook or Twitter or Pinterest or whatever, but I’d sure appreciate that if you wanted to. I’ll close comments Friday night (March 16, 2012) at 9:00 pm and select 4 random winners shortly thereafter. Sorry, but I’m only able to ship to U.S. addresses. Winners will have 48 hours after I notify them via email to respond with their mailing address. If I don’t hear from you an alternate winner will be selected, so be sure to leave your email address and check your email.
I hope YOU win! Thank you so much for reading Wendolonia and being a part of my life!
