Bring Back Nice Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hi friends!  I'm so sorry that I haven't been doing any challenges or posts lately.  Summer has been challenging for us.  We are keeping busy and school starts again soon.

Today, we are doing a Bring Back Nice Blog Hop.  This is a little promotional hop to spread the word about our Bring Back Nice movement and to spread some NICE around the internet.  I opened sign ups to everyone so hopefully we will run smoothly.  Here are all the stops in case something gets jumbled.

Honestly, I feel like I've gone on and on about Bring Back Nice, what it means to me, and what I'd like to accomplish.  I'm going to leave you with a quote and a GIVEAWAY.
For the giveaway, I'm offering up a box full of paper crafting supplies.  You can use it for yourself or if you aren't a crafter, you can give it to someone else.  If you'd like to be entered, just leave a comment below about something nice that happened this week or your favorite quote about kindness.  If you'd like an extra entry in the giveaway, you can like the Bring Back Nice Facebook Page.  Leave another comment if you went and liked the page or already like it.  (ETA: I will announce the winner next Sunday, July 27th.  The box is only available for US addresses.  If you are in another country and you win, I will get you a gift certificate to Whisker Graphics.)

Next up on the hop is JAN!  


  1. I love your rustic sign!

  2. Smiling at a stranger can be the best way to brighten their day.

  3. Don't know where it came from, but I like the saying, "It's nice to be nice." It's so true!

  4. You're such a sweetheart, Ashley. I don't need (or want) to win. I have more than enough crafty stuff. I just love this movement that you've inspired and I hope that more people see this and take part! <3

  5. I traveled to another state recently and had the chance to meet up with a crafty friend. I teach Art to grade school kids and every year we make Mother's and Father's Day cards. She gave me several boxes of crafty items for my students to use. I thought that was awesome and so sweet of her.

  6. It is essential to make this change! I'm so glad I was a part of this. It have me the chance to meet new bloggers and to map out some changes I want to make in my behavior this week!

  7. love your movement! Something nice that happened this past week was getting to go shopping with my mom, she has been really sick lately and not able to really leave the house so this was a good change! Thanks so much!

  8. Great sign! sorry I am late in commenting, it's been crazy here, but I did bookmark to come back. I think you're pretty nice btw. :)
