Blogiversary and a giveaway!


Today it has been two years since I started this little blog! I have to admit that I love documenting this small part of our lives in this space. When I started the blog I thought of it as a digital scrapbook and that's how I still think of it today. Of course, what goes on the blog really is a small part of our day to day lives- a glossy version if you will. Certainly my family has its share of moments where we fuss, argue and fall apart just like everyone does but that's not what I choose to dwell on here.

The blog has given me an opportunity to connect to and keep up with friends and also to meet new blog friends! I love the nice comments that people leave and have gotten wonderful ideas and great advice from fellow bloggers. I appreciate your support!

To celebrate two years of blogging I'm going to host a giveaway! It was fun last year and so I'd thought I'd do it again. A couple of weeks ago when Gretchen and I were antiquing I picked up more spoons to make spoon garden markers. Whoever wins the giveaway will win 5 garden spoon markers. The winner can choose whatever words they want "engraved" on the markers (just remember these are not professionally done, it's just me in the basement hammering away!)! Just leave a comment and we will choose a name from a hat on Friday!

  12. Happy Blogiversary :) I loved these when you put up a post, but I don't have a garden. I'd love own them for a different reason...

  13. We really want to win these spoons - (because they will be made by you!!).. On the other hand, we would hate to have you put FAMILY!! (hint Hint) in the drawing with all these great fellow bloggers you have. So instead of putting Gran in the the drawing, how about this idea - maybe a nice set of them for Grace and Harris's Grandma in Colorado for a Christmas gift - hint hint... and you need to know how much your blog updates mean to us!! Keep it up, it is a great gift to the rest of us....

  17. I love reading your blog. You are always doing the projects I wish I could put together. You inspire me. Also Grace's big smile always makes me smile. I've been watching to see if you did a theme day with Ramona- I think the movie comes out this week. I know how you love books.

  21. I'm always inspired by your blog - kindred crafty spirits, I think. Only you actually seem to DO the projects and, most of the time, I don't get much past bookmarking the ideas (well, sometimes I do). Thanks for the inspiration!
