I Made It! (a Giveaway)

to a 1st anniversary!  It is due to friends at KCUK that I have a Blog.  I was so apprehensive and  said to myself give it one month, if I didn’t like Blogging it would be easy enough to stop. One year on and I cannot imagine not having a Blog. It has made such a difference to my crafting life, “meeting” new friends, discovering other Blogs where I am constantly inspired by crafters’ art having wonderful opportunities through being a DT member.
As a little “Thank You” and to celebrate my Blog’s 1st anniversary I have a Giveaway, this tote which I will fill with crafty bits ‘n’ pieces  and other items.
This beautiful image is from The Graphic Fairy. I wanted to use it as the image could possibly be  friends  and for me, Blogging and friendship goes hand in hand. Friendships are forged where we might never meet each other but they are still friendships nevertheless.A detail of this beautiful image
So, if you would like to win this tote along with its contents then all you need to do is leave me a little comment. For a bit of fun you could tell me, what is the best thing about having a Blog but this will not make any difference to your chance of winning the Giveaway, only a bit of fun. Deadline is 12th December. Good Luck.

Whether you are a new visitor or one who stops by all the time you have no idea how much you encourage me with your visits. Wishes & Thanks.  Lynne x

    Your tote is stunning Lynne! Congratulations on your blogaversary! Amazing that it’s been a year already! I’m so glad you started it, otherwise we might never have become friends! I think that has to be the best thing about blogging, you make so many wonderful friends through doing it!

    Congratulations! The best thing about having a blog is discovering cyberfriends who come to visit and share in the love of making art! Speaking of which, your tote is beautiful, and I would love to win–not so much for the goodies (although I love goodies) but more for having one of your amazing creations. Helene

    Lovely bag, Lynne and Happy 1yr Anniversary! For me, the best part of blogging has been making friends like you through sharing artwork. I never would have dreamed I’d meet people all over the world when I started blogging.

    Happy Anniversary Lynne, your tote bag is just stunning, not sure how you could ever part with it. I started blogging not really all that long ago and have met some amazing people and crafters which has bought me great happiness and opened my eyes up to a whole new world. Annette x

    Congratulations Lynne and Happy Anniversary! The bag is beautiful as all your projects are. What I love most about blogging is the world of friendships that have opened up to me. Like you said, some I may never meet, but I sure do think of as friends and you know you are in that group. I think all the time if I go here or I go there, I will have to look up this person! I started my blog in Jaunary, but really only started blogging in May and can’t believe I waited. Have a great weekend my friend! Hugs to you!

    Congrats on the 1 year, I just made 1 year last month; like you I thought I’d give it a try, and I’m still here too. 🙂 Blogging is such a great internet of friendly people, I would be very lonely without it now, and where would I get my inspiration if I couldn’t drop in HERE and some of the other blogs out there? That tote is just wonderful, you are so creative!!

    You know the old saying, it’s no loss what a friend gets.

    That is a lovely tote, the image is so sweet! The best thing about having a blog (for me) is all the “imaginary friends,” as my children call them, that I’ve met from all over the world.

    Congratulations on your blogaversary!

    1 year is awesome. still havent made it quite that far.
    fav thing about blogging is the advice from other artist. Knowing i am not the only one out there who is a crafty hoarder and that there is someone out there who understands “me”
    awesome give away.

    Happy Anniversary Lynne. I think one of the best things about blogging is the wonderful community you become a part of. There’s so much talent out there and I love how people are so willing to share their ideas and inspiration.

    May you blog for many more years so that we can continue to see your wonderful artwork.

    Happy Anniversary Lynne!!! Here is to the next year of great art and inspiration! I started blogging cause I commented on blogs for so long without a blog and decided one day to start my own…I like connecting to others with the same interests and it is interesting following other artists creativity.

    Congratulations on your 1 year blogiversary, Lynne!! Woohoo!! And this bag you’ve crafted is beautiful! I love the lace details and that image from graphics fairy is perfectly selected for such an occasion! I’d love a chance at winning this beauty! As you know, I’m still new to blogging, but what you may not know is that I was extremely apprehensive about starting. but I’m so glad that I did. I never could have imagined how rewarding it would be to share this special connection with other crafters. It really is a joy to meet and get to know such wonderful, talented, and inspiring people!! ❤ Thanks for sharing all of your beautiful creations! 🙂

    Isn’t blogging great? Congratulations on your 1year anniversary. I have only just discovered your blog, I came over from Marie, Lost Bird Studio, where I saw your gorgeous card.
    Best thing about about blogging? The close friendships I have formed with some fellow bloggers, and the inspiration so many bloggers have given me for new projects, techniques, etc.
