Happy 1st Blogoversary – giveaway


It is amazing to think it has been a full year since I started my blog. Lately my blog has focused mostly on the crafty side, but I still enjoy the cooking/baking aspects and the finer arts. So my goal for this next year will be to find a balance!!! That’s it, simple….right???

I don’t want go into too much of what I have done, as I think these posts cover it well, and sums it all up with photo mosaics.

First, I would like to thank all those that I have meet over the course of the year. You are all inspiring, encouraging and wonderful people. I started out looking for a community and I, for sure, have found that. So, thank you to all.

Sunday Funday Giveaway Party

In conjunction with Julie’s Sunday Funday party, for two weeks I will be hosting a giveaway.

As a thank you this week, I am giving away the book “Quilting on the Go”, one set of reusable hexagon templates, and two charm packs (Posy + Baby Jane)….kind of a mini hand project kit!!  All you need to do is leave:

  1. a comment below – about anything you want,
  2. and if you are a follower leave a second comment for a second entry.

I will draw a winner randomly next Friday.


Also something a little different, there a 5 people who, in particular, have offered guidance, encouragement over this year – they are my 5 top commenters in my blog. I truly appreciate you stopping by so much.  I am gifting each a $25 USD Etsy gift card.

Hope you all have a great weekend and good luck…stop by next week for a 2nd giveaway opportunity.

    16. oh dear I looked at the picture of the giveaway and thought – what a coincidence those are the same charm packs as the ones being given away – I thought they were part of the book cover. Congrats on your blogaversary and thanks for the chance to win.

    21. Congratulations!! And thank you! What a beautiful and thoughtful gift to receive when I woke this morning! I have enjoyed getting to know you through our blogs – it makes me laugh that I find myself talking about things you have said or done when I am in conversation with more local friends! True global communities! Enjoy finding your balance – you know that it is one of my ongoing aims, so I look forward to the next piece of the blogging adventure together!!
