1st Blogging Birthday Giveaway

A year ago today, I took the plunge and put my first ever blog post out into the big, wide world.  It was a bit scary.  What if nobody had visited me?  But, it was also really exciting!  And I'm very glad I did it!!!  

It doesn’t seem like a whole year ago.  In fact, I almost missed marking the occasion altogether.  I only checked the date of my first post a couple of weeks ago, when I’d read about somebody else’s blogging birthday.  As they say, time flies when you’re having fun!

And I HAVE been having fun – LOTS of it!  And that’s all thanks to you, my lovely blogging friends!  Thank you, thank you, thank you for visiting me, for being interested enough to follow me, and for all your lovely, lovely comments!!!

To say ‘thank you’ and ‘you’re amazing’ to all of you, I’m going to host a giveaway.  If you enter, you could win this little bundle of prizes:

It includes.....

a rosette pin (made by me)

a little purse.....

..... with spotty, blue fabric inside (made by me too)

a make-up/toiletry case (also made by me, of course)

‘The Wonderful Weekend Book’ (not made by me, but loved by me)

To enter, all you need to do is:
1)  Follow my blog
2)  Leave a comment under this post

I’ll leave the giveaway open for two weeks, and pick a winner out of a hat (or maybe just a little jar) on Monday 25th June.  Of course, it’s open to everybody, no matter whereabouts in the world you are. 

Good luck!!!

Have a super week.....
