My Blogiversary Giveaway......

The drawing is now closed so I can find my winner!
Well, today is a big day! It is my one year anniversary on the blogs! I absolutely LOVE blogging and all of the friends I have made from it. So, to thank all of you for making it such a wonderful experience, I am having a giveaway. Nothing major, but quite a few of you still can't find a cloche. Well, I have found one for you (I know it is dirty, you will get to clean it up!) and all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post! The base of it is a dark wood and it is mirrored. If you hate that, you know a little spray paint is all you need to make a base the color you want. The contest will end on Saturday (who knows what time, just whenever I decide...lol) and I'll use the random generator to select a winner. Good Luck!

Also, Beth from Rambling Gal was the first one to make the correct guess on what I was making in my last post. It is a ragamuffin garland. I hope to show it and my July 4th Patriotic decorations next Wednesday.

Darlene, I am so glad that you're having this giveaway, and I want to RIGHT NOW congratulate the fortunate one who wins--as long as it's ME!

I want to win! There. I've said it!

I'd do a happy dance. I'll be your best friends. I'll ... well, you get the idea.

It's funny because when I started blogging last August, I found all these great blogs (like yours!) and thought they must have been doing this a long time, since they seemed to know so much about what they were doing....hmmm, and it was only a short time before I had started to blog. Mine will come up in early Aug! So I guess that goes to show you that it's not hard to learn to blog, or to fool bloggers into thinking you know what you are doing! HA! Can't wait to see the garland! Thanks for being a great blogging friend!

Deb said...

Congratulations on your first year of posting!! Funny how this little world of blogging can connect so many people. Makes this big world of ours so much smaller. Can't wait to see your garland, and have a fabulous day!!

Happy Blogaversary!! I've enjoyed your posts the past year and seeing Lexi grow and mature and watching all of her fun activities has been a blast!! Here's to many more blogging years!!!
Have a Blessed Day!

Diane said...

I guessed wrong yesterday! I can't wait to see your garland. Happy Blogiversary!! Crossing my fingers that I win that cloche, cause I can't find one anywhere, well not for less than $50.00 or more, which is NOT within my budget right now!

Neabear said...

I can't wait to see how your garland turns out! I don't have a cloche yet, so you must enter me in your giveaway. I would be so excited to win your cloche, because then that would make me an official blogger. LOL! I have really enjoyed knowing your through your blog and really appreciate your visits and comments to mine. Speaking of projects I have a teaser project on my craft blog.

Hi Darlene
Congratulations on your blogiversary. I look forward to seeing your completed garland. That fabric is gorgeous.
Love the cloche, but don't enter me as I am sure if I did win, it wouldn't make it over the Atlantic in one piece!
I am so happy I met you in blogland. I love following your blog and reading what's going on in your life.

Congrats on the year anniversary! I still have a couple of months! Time has flown by so fast and your right some great friends we have made on here...So glad to have met you Darlene...I feel like I know so much from never have met you! It would be so cool to meet one day.

Oh and a cloche...I have a cheese dome but I can't find a cloche in my town...I want one and maybe with my fingers and toes I will be lucky!

I knew it was a garland...can't wait to see it....So many have made these and I still need to do one for myself...I have the material sitting on my dining room table but just have not made it yet but will soon after the veggie season is over...

I think a patriotic like garland sounds so fun! It will look fantastic! I remember you doing this last year, and I wanted to do it, but STILL haven't! Maybe this would be something I could do on vacation this week! I can't wait to see how it turns out! :) Have a beautiful day and a great weekend!

Happy Blogiversary, Darlene. I had no idea that we started blogging about the same time. I just remember you being one of my first commenters and I assumed that you were a pro.
