my first blog anniversary + giveaway






I've been blogging for a year now, it's my blog anniversary !!!!!!
I started blogging because I'd been reading other people's blogs and wanted a record of my crafty adventures and things that happened in my life during those adventures.

Lots of finishes in this year. I've finished cushions, quilts, wall hangings, blocks, pouches and have taken part in giveaways, blog hops and round robins.  Ventured to UK for quilting retreat and met many fellow bloggers.


What a wonderful world we live in, technology is generally a fantastic method of communication, without technology I would not have met my husband, would not be able to be a stay at home wife and mother (DH is a techie lol) and wouldn't be a blogger :O)

I'm very lucky to be able to offer a special giveaway and another first :O)
Simply Solids has very generously offered a £10 gift voucher for the winner of my Anniversary giveaway and I'm using Rafflecopter this time.  Let me know if you like using it because it does look an easier option for a more complicated giveaway. The giveaway ends next Friday and is open to International peeps

Have a great weekend

    Loving the rafflecopter!
    To say I have an addiction to paper goods is probably an understatement!! I have a larger stash of notebooks than fabric and a crazy collection of post it notes! It helps to be an organised and stylish teacher :) I could spend hours in Paperchase! Love all your finishes for the year!!
