Welcome to Friday people!
– gotta love Fridays right?
Especially when one’s husband has a half day and will be home soon – Yeah that!
Well, since it’s the Quilting Bloggers Blog Hop Party Giveaway day starting today (sheesh what a mouthful – try saying that with a mouth full of marshmallows! 😉 ) I thought I’d combine my Favourite thing Friday with my celebration giveaway today…
So today, my favourite thing is….
Yep, blogging indeed!
And December marks a year since I started blogging seriously. Can you believe it’s only been a year?
I can’t really believe it’s only been a year to be honest!
– So much has happened in that year and I have developed so much. I feel like I’ve known a few of you much longer than that too.
I mean, technically I started blogging earlier than a year ago, but really I only dabbled half heartedly for the first while. It really wasn’t until December that I found my voice, (the time) and the passion to start keeping my online “Diary” seriously.
It is really hard to explain how much blogging has changed my life!
For starters, without the blog world I would not be 1% of the crafter I am. I pretty much learnt to sew 100% from blogs! And I do not know where I would be if I didn’t craft/sew a little every day.
It really does help keep me sane while I bring up my two darlings! I mean, I love them dearly and could not imagine life without them, but this full-time mothering gig does have it’s moments and it’s very useful to have a healthy outlet during those moments ya know… 😉
Secondly it has helped me get connected with some truly wonderful and inspirational people!
You all know who you are, I don’t need to name you all. Despite the fact that we’ve never me I consider many of my “bloggy friends” among the closest and most supportive that I have, & definitely among the most inspirational!
So to celebrate blogging, and since this is predominately a quilting/sewing blog after all, today for the Quilter’s blog hop I am giving away…
Wait for it…
A charm pack of the yet to be released “Walk in the Woods” range, the latest by Aneela Hoey.
Yes that’s right, get this super cute fabric before everybody else does. Ok well maybe not everybody else – because obviously if I have some then other people do too, but you know what I mean 😉
Entry is simple:
First entry: simply leave me a comment. (You can proclaim your love for me if you really must, but it’s not a prerequisite 😉 )
But this time there are also some bonus entries up for grabs:
Second entry: my “Support Crew” can all have a second entry, just cause I heart you so much.
(I’m really sorry but you must follow me through Google friend connect to qualify for this second entry, not just subscribe through a reader, otherwise how will I tell you are a regular reader?)
Third Entry: if you have previously left me a comment on ANY post that I’ve written since the 1st December then you can have another bonus entry. Because that means that I love you super heaps 😉
Fourth Entry: Blog about this giveaway and you can have a fourth bonus entry.
So good luck!
I will draw this when the giveaway blog hop closes on the 17th December.
Which is also my Dad’s birthday just in case you were interested – hey, maybe I should make him enter so that he can win it for his birthday and then gift it back to me; would that be cheating?
Hmmm…. yes, probably cheating!

Oh and I also just organised my giveaway for Monday for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day, and what can I say but it’s a great one! Hee heee – I can’t wait! I love to give cool stuff!
