One year old... and a giveaway!




I can't believe I've been blogging for a year now, it has gone so quickly and such a lot has happened in this year, especially on the making front, my business has really taken off, which is fantastic.  It has been a steep learning curve but an enjoyable one.

I have 'met' so many lovely new people through blogging and I am grateful to have you, the lovely comments really do make my day.

To celebrate my first blogging anniversary I would like to offer a giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment (you don't have to be a follower, but would love it if I get to know more of you who read my blog)  I thought you might like one of my garlands and I will make the draw on Saturday 7th December so that they can get to you in time for Christmas.

Thank you all my bloggy friends and here's to the next year!

  11. Well done for a year of blogging. And I'm so glad your handmade business has taken off too, it's something I'd love to do, and I always admire people who make it work. I hope your success continues. And thanks for the giveaway, the garland is lovely.
