{One Year Blogiversary GIVEAWAY!}


I can't believe it has been a whole year since I started blogging! I've realized that as I get older, the years go by soooooo fast! Sometimes I'm grateful, and sometimes I'm just trying to keep up. So,.... one year ago I was writing my first blog post, learning about my new camera, remembering Cabo and our wedding,.... oh and painting. :) I have come a long way since then. I am currently writing my 115th blog post, working more and more with my year old camera, remembering South Carolina (and still, our wedding) and continually re-arranging. :) But I am also doing things I never thought I would be if you had asked me a year ago, like being featured in a magazine, Quilting (here, here, here, here, here, here and here too!) becoming God Parents and becoming fur parents (again!).

In celebration of my blogiversary and as a thank you to my loyal readers, one lucky winner will get a cute set of handmade crochet cotton dish cloths and a copy of The Harmony Guides, Basic Crochet Stitches, 250 stitches to crochet. I have recently gotten back into crochet (like I need another hobby) and this giveaway is inspired by the most recent Craft Hope project. I made a ton of these cloths while I was out at the beach and decided that they were so adorable, everyone could use a set.

(please note that the actual cloths in the picture will be mailed out for the current Craft Hope project, but the winner will receive 3 identical cloths)

Leave a comment, let me know what you were up to a year ago, or last weekend,... or yesterday and I will be picking the winner at the end of the day, Wednesday June 30th. (My apologies, but only US readers please,.... still love all my international readers too though).

xoxo

  1. I was at a museum in Memphis yesterday! That is an hour from where I live in Mississippi.A year ago I had a tiny baby always in my arms and crying all the time. Time flies and you miss what you had and don't realize you are enjoying the present. That happens to me anyway.

  3. A year ago I was in a trip with my guy, visiting his college town in Mexico. A week ago I was in Jacksonville on a couch eating ice cream with him. He has filled every single day with joy. Today I am far away from him, missing him like crazy. Thanks for your giveaway, it gave my mind and hear a little break.

  4. A year ago I was starting to plan my wedding & honeymoon (which happened at the end of this spring). I was enjoying my summer break from work, working in my fruit & veg garden (as I am this year), and enjoying having some extra time for snuggling with my kitties & my guy.

  6. A year ago, I was just enjoying spending time with my 6 month old baby boy(holding him and he would cuddle with me), now a year later, he is on the go and never stops he would run all day long if he could. He doesn't like being held like he used to. I miss the days I would hold him and he would fall asleep in my arms. The clothes are very pretty but everything I have seen you make is awesome.

  7. So I have a bad memory and can't remember what I was doing last year but this past weekend we were out on our boat and I had my first 2 real lessons on how to drive it. My husband is brave enough to teach me and since I always want to go out he said it was time for me to learn so he can relax and enjoy the rides as I usually do. Congrats on your blogiversary! Keep up the great work!
