Bloggiversary GIVEAWAY!


I turned on my computer this morning and this popped up in my notifications: –


I thought it was next week but I’ll go with WordPress and celebrate today as my One Year Anniversary, rather comically referred to as a Bloggiversary (my interpretation of spelling, seeing as it is a made up word!).

I’d planned to do a giveaway as a small gesture of thanks to everyone who has followed, visited or commented over the past twelve months as, without such unfailing support, this blog would not be here now. You can’t continue without constant encouragement, can you?

I can’t put into words quite how much I have enjoyed blogging – both the creative process and (even more) discovering the multitude of fantastic blogs out there. That so many lovely (mostly) ladies are happy to share so unselfishly their ideas and creations, quite overwhelmed me in the beginning and gave me the confidence to join in and nervously share some of my own makes.

I fully expected criticism as part of the deal, but can honestly say that I haven’t had a single negative comment – all words have been constructive and, most importantly, kind. I feel as if I ‘know’ a lot of you and hopefully will somehow meet some of you wonderful, like-minded people in the future. (A get-together anyone?!)

Anyway – back to the giveaway.

Remember the hugely successful Crafternoon that I held for Comic Relief, raising Β£340 in total? I did a couple of posts (here and here) in the run up showing you the things I’d made prior to the day itself.

Would anyone like to win ALL of them?

To enter, just make sure you ‘Follow’ the blog then leave a comment below.

No. 3 Son will pull a name out of the hat after the closing date of midnight on Saturday 18th April – so be quick!

As a reminder, here’s what’s up for grabs: –

pear pin cushion

Felt Chick


Attic 24’s Spring Posy Brooch


‘Make your face funny for money’ Moustache

Thanks again to EVERYONE for your brilliantness (definitely a word)!

    You do hear some awful stories of other bloggers receiving a little backlash but fortunately us crafters seem generally to be nice folks!
    Congratulations on your one year. Here’s to many more.

  4. Congratulations!!!! Encouraging words are such a breath of fresh air igniting the soul to better things!!! May this coming year be sprinkle with more amazingness and showered with the kindest of words. If we don’t support one another how could anyone grow and create? As for the many delightful items, I’d say the wee little chick has captured my heart! Darlene P.

    • Thanks for such kind (and wise) words, Darlene. I think the chick has been by far the most popular make, although the pincushion is my personal favourite as it is also useful:)

    • Thanks Beth; my first post was April 24th but I set up the blog on 16th which is what WordPress considers the anniversary. As for being generous – take a look at all the things you have shared and all the lovely comments you have made!! If I can inspire others then that is the ultimate compliment – thank you:)

    I hope you got flowers and everything at home! Your blogs fab and I love reading it, so clever, creative and inspirational! I would love to win everything in your giveaway, and if i was lucky enough to have 2 pin cushions I would use the other for my ‘best’ pins!


  13. You always say such nice things Ali! As for flowers – hmmph, hubby insists that ‘Bloggiversary’ isn’t a real word so can’t be celebrated. How very dare he!


  14. Ha ha! I could use that as a threat, couldn’t I?


  15. Gutted I missed this! Amazing how much you miss when life gets busy for a while… Happy blogiversary! πŸ™‚
