Happy Blogiversary, and a Giveaway...

I. am. shocked. It has been one year since I began this journey called a blog. I have written 241 posts. I never thought I would have that much to write about, but evidently I do. I just looked back at my very first post, and I laughed so hard. So much has changed over this past year. I have really gotten "settled" in our home. I have lost 36 lbs. The boys have grown and changed. I even got a blog button. But most of all, I have made so many wonderful friends!! I am so thankful for the friendships that I have made through the blog, and all of the wonderful new things all of you have taught me through your own blogs. So, I'm gonna have a giveaway!

I have pondered all week about what I was gonna do, and finally decided that since I am such a sentimental person, I am gonna make the winner a gift or two. It is not huge, but it is gonna be handmade by me and will be made to suit the winner's tastes. I will make the winner a tassel and pillow according to their personal home decor colors.

Now don't fret. My tasseling abilities have gotten much improved from my first two tries. I still can't believe I even posted those pitiful looking things, but they were a work in progress and I can look at them now and see how far I have come. Here are a few of my more recent beauties and I posted about my pillow last week, but here are a few of them as well.


Now, the rules are simple. Just leave me a comment and you will be entered. I am gonna take names until midnight, Tuesday October 13. It seems like an odd time, but since 13 is my lucky number it works. Good luck and thanks for a wonderful year!

Hi, I came to your blog after trying to find a blog in our area that hosts a huge garage sale three times a year.

Your blog is darling. I love your boy's room and after reading you removed the wallpaper inch by inch I am impressed. I have one room I want to strip and I just can't get started.

Congratulations on the weight loss!

I love your blog so much. I'm so very glad I've gotten to know you. I'm sorry I haven't been commenting too much lately. Seems everytime I am at the computer is for a mere few minutes. I have so much to catch up on!! Thanks for the chance to win! I'd love to add another pretty tassel to my collection of one...made by you!
