Six Month Blogiversary and Giveaway!!! {Updated}

The Giveaway is now closed

See below for the winner

Do you guys know what today is? Yes it's Memorial Day, but do you know what else it is?

...Okay, so you read the title of the post. I knew I shouldn't have named it that.

That's right, today is the six-month blogiversary of Treats & Trinkets! On November 28th, when I was in my happy little land of NaNo-denial that I only had 2 days left to write a whole buttload of words, I posted my very first post. It had a picture of me and a picture of Viola and I had some delusions of grandeur about being a blogger and it was all so very exciting. I posted my very first recipe- Banana Cookies- a week later because I then realized that I only had two days left in November, and I was in my NaNoWriMo coma the first few days of December.

Aren't you excited for Camp NaNoWriMo starting June 1st? XD

I've had such a fun time in the six months since. I've won awards, become a part of the wonderful food blogger community, and I've even become a judge! I joined Twitter and Pinterest and Foodbuzz and am never looking back. I learned that I am apparently funny, and that I can apply my tried and true method of never planning anything to baking, too. Peanut Butter & Co. even tweeted me to say that my Dark Chocolate Dreams cupcakes looked great! That's what I call success.

When I realized that my six month blogiversary was coming up, I knew I wanted to do something to celebrate. I would love to buy each and every one of you a present, but I'm not a bazillionare (yet, that is. I haven't heard back from Bruce Wayne after my proposal). So I decided to host a giveaway; this way at least one of you gets a present.
First of all, we have these totally cute ice cream pop molds...
...Totally cool silicone brain ice molds (hahaha, get it? Cool? I crack myself up)...
 ...These cute mini bundt pans...
...Strawberry Lemonade drink mix (I mostly liked it because of the mini whisk)...
... And this super awesome jeweled pad. I kind of have an obsession with notebooks, so it was either I buy it for you or I buy it for me, but it was totally getting bought.
So how can you enter to win this fabulous six month blogiversary extravaganza Treats & Trinkets prize fun pack? It's easy-peasy: {This giveaway is now closed}
