Blogiversary Giveaway

The anniversary of this blog, aka 'blogiversary', passed by in the beginning of August.  I was either in Iowa, or Nevada or somewhere in between and blogging was the last thing on my mind.  So today we celebrate.

I remember starting the blog after discovering all the sewing and crafty blogs about 6 months before I started.  After reading blogs for a while, I decided 'I could do that'.  If any of you have been around from the beginning, you know that the subjects have changed and evolved over the couple of years.  I'm pretty happy with where I am now.  I no longer feel the Need to blog everyday, or have new and exciting projects and tutorials to share every week.  I'm not quite as obsessed with my follower number as I used to be.  (Although I did just reach 150, which was exciting)  I'm happy to have a place to show what I do and share a bit about my family.  And a place to make new blogging friends!

So now you're saying - what about the giveaway?  Well, since I'm embarking on my third year of blogging, I've got three different prizes.

 First up is a Made by Me hexagon pin cushion, along with a charm pack of the Fall 2012 Samplers from Connecting Threads.  There are 24 unique charms in this stack.
 Second, a Moda Love Letters Charm pack.  40 charm squares in this one.
 Third, a Moda Phenomenal Fall charm pack.  42 charm squares in this pack.
*This Giveaway is now Closed*
The giveaway rules.
1. Just leave me a comment about your favorite fall activity.  That's it.  If you want to follow me, great, but I really hate all the hoop jumping just to enter giveaways lately.  I don't do fb for the blog, I don't have an etsy shop, etc.  Just leave that comment.
2. I must have a way to contact you.
3. I will leave the giveaway open for one week.  It will close 9.7.12 at 1:00pm. I will draw the winners sometime after that.
4. You may give a preference as to which prize you would like, but I can't guarantee that's what you'll get.

Good luck, and thanks for hanging around and reading my blog!

Thanks for offering such an awesome giveaway. My favorite fall activity crunching leaves when I walk - beware of hidden sticks though, they jump up and scratch your legs if you're not paying attention. Not that I know this from experience or anything.

Great giveaway.
Happy Blogiversary

My favourite Autumn activity is walking through our local woods when the leaves are turning/falling!

My 3 sisters & I do a quilting round robin or a block exchange each year. We live in 4 different states, and get together in the Fall at our Dad's (a 5th state) as our finale. This year my Dad moved in with my youngest sister, so we'll be meeting up there. I'd love to win any of the 3 prizes-all are great. Thanks.

Congratulations! My favorite fall activity has to be getting ready for Holloween. I love all the decorations and the fun of trick or treating. The neighborhood kids all come to my house because I give out bags with toys and juice and things rather than candy. Their parents appreciate that I don't give out candy but more healthy things.

Congratulations on your blogiversary Rachel.
A year is a long time. I love baking, especially cookies.

Hmmm, I thought I left a comment the other day.

Congratulations on your Blogiversary! My favourite thing in the fall is watching the kids jump in the leaves. It is so funny how they make them look soft.

My favourite fabric is Love Letters.
