It's been an interesting year to say the least. It's been an incredibly hard year, but it's also been a blessed year. And this blog has been one of the biggest blessings.
It was originally my good friend Sian who inspired me to start blogging after seeing her crafty blog Spin a Song of Sixpence. Previously when I would make something, I would have no-one to show it to; it was no big deal if I didn't finish it because no-one would notice. Getting a blog not only made me finish projects (a few projects I would have given up on because I didn't like them to begin with include my snood, my handbag drawing, my crocheting with plarn) because showing you a load of half-finished projects would be a rubbish blog! Also, I tried out so many new things.
Firsts for me while blogging:
- My first scrapbooking mini album
- My first scrapbook page
- My first sock monkey
- My first badges
- My first crocheting
- My first Moleskine
- My first sale
- My first shop
and now I have my first giveaway!
What a way to celebrate - free stuff! If you'd like to win some goodies, just leave a comment on this post. The closing date is midnight this Thursday. I'll collect all of the names, put them in a hat and then draw one at random. I'll announce the winner this Friday, 10th October. What do you think? As for what you will win, this book is up for grabs:
And I'm sure I'll find some other bits and pieces to throw in. So, just leave a comment on this post - tell me why you visit my blog. That would be nice.
Thank you to everyone who has ever left a comment - your lovely comments brighten my days and mean so much to me. Thank you to my regular readers and to my passing visitors. This has become a lovely happy place; thank you for making it so. Here's to the next year! Cheers!
