Happy 3rd Blog Birthday to me!

Hi everyone. Yep, made it to three years of blogging, I’m impressed with myself. I’ll keep it brief, sorry no funny stories about gum in my bum or overindulging and making myself sick! Like the new banner and layout? Not sure about this new 3 column but will suck it and see. The banner was supposed to be an actual cross stitch, but the Son’s been slack. For now you’ll have to put up with the digital version.

The past 3 blog years I’ve made some great friends, been inspired, laughed, learnt and crafted. I remember first starting and wondering why I was doing this and then people started commenting, it was and still is such an enjoyable, positive part of my life. Sure, my life’s not all roses, but who’s is, the blog is my semi-sanctuary. I don’t have to reveal the whole underbelly of my life and yes, I can and do choose what to share. EDIT: Saying that the past 7 months or so have been some of the happiest of my life. If you’re a regular reader you’ll know what I mean. Nice to be able to control SOME part of my life. Control freak, me? LOL. Well maybe a little, but I reckon that’s one of the pros of having a blog, it feeds our inner control freak. Ok, it feeds mine. I can’t vouch for all of you out there.

I was saying, brief. Ok. Here’s the deal. The free stuff. See the picture below, I’m going to make three sets of tissue holders and tape measures, the tape measure will be customised, well the letter I sew on the measure will be customised to each of the three winners. Whatever letter your heart desires. I’ll probably throw in a few other surprises. All  you guys have to do is comment. You don’t need to have a blog, or you can have a blog, if you’re a reader and never commented delurk yourself. Whatever. You don’t even have to say something funny, just leave a comment. On Tuesday 31st July (not sure which timezone, I’ll be drawing, so get your comments in) I’ll draw three winners.

That’s it. Thanks for reading and commenting and have a great crafty weekend.

    Delurking here!
    I found you through the first Back-Tack and have been a reader ever since. Thank you so much for everything you have to offer as an individual in this increasingly impersonal world!
    Happy Anniversary!

    I am taking myself out of the running for amazing free stuff — you have already blessed me with beautiful creations more than once.
    Just commenting to say I am so glad you blog. It is so fun to read your site — gum/bum stories, spud stories, the Son, the adventures, the crafting. 🙂 Happy Anniversary my friend!

    Hey – just managed to look at your blog in my jet lagged post-vacation state, and was fortunate to be in time to enter a drawing for some hand crafted beauties! Must be my lucky day.
