Blogiversary - YAY!!!

Happy Blogiversary to me! It seems really weird that I blogged for an entire year. I looked back at my first post a moment ago and I realize now what an incredible journey these past 12 months have been. Some really good and some really bad things happened this year, yet I am still standing - unreal!

Thanks to all the new friends I made. It's so much fun! I really didn't know what this blog adventure could bring. I made many new friends and feel so very fortunate for that. I look at my world differently and with more perspective from knowing such a diverse group of people through the blogs; to me that's invaluable.

My outlook changed. My husband's career changed. My desires changed. My children (really) changed. My home changed. My family changed. I changed.
Smoky Mountains Ashes to Ashes

I look forward to a new year and new friends and new changes. So enough of all that goopy stuff ON WITH THE PRIZES!!! YES, prizes!

As is customary with blogiversaries I have prizes - good ones too!
Leave me a comment before Thursday @ 10:00 EDT and I'll put you in the drawing on Friday.

I'll be sending out two sets, each consisting of:
a mini tissue holder, a coin purse/card wallet, a zippered pouch, and some more goodies that I am working on today (you'll have to wait until tomorrow for photos of that).
My creation
Just a preview.

Thank you for joining me for the ride. I hope you stick around!

I'll keep you posted!

Great idea for the prizes, I may have to "steal" it when my blog turns one. :) Did you make them yourself?

Anastacia said...

Happy bloganniversary! I'm here from M-D, too. I can't resist a contest, especially when it involves fab goodies. My computer's being wonky again & I'm on dial up to boot, so I can't see the photo of the goodies but I bet they are absolutely fab! Lots of luck to you and have a great second year of blogging!
