Blog Anniversary



Well, I was planning to do a giveaway celebrating the 1 year anniversary of my blog tomorrow and what do you know....Sew, Mama Sew has an organized blog giveaway today called Give-Away Day, 2008.

When I started my blog, I had no idea that in the first year I would have 355 posts and 42334 visits. I started it to help me keep track of what I have done and what needs to be done, but I've had a wonderful time posting, have made some wonderful friends from all over the world, and I love hearing from those that leave comments.

So, on with the giveaway....

Leave me a comment on this post and you could be the proud owner of one of these Mini-Charmer bags, with some goodies inside, of course. Let me know which one you would choose if your name is drawn.



• You don't need to have a blog to enter, but do need to provide an email address.

• I will be happy to ship your bag internationally.

• I will draw a name 24 hours from now, which is less than an hour from the time that I first posted to my blog.

Good Luck to you.


WE HAVE A WINNER: "Laine"
