My mum must be so proud! First of all my sister's work graces the likes of Grazia, Red and the Times Style magazine, and then I go one better and get a slot in (wait for it) ....Popular Crafts magazine - DUN DUN DAH! Steve made some sarcastic comment about not letting it change me and muttered something about it having a distribution of about 30 people, but hey, it's a start, right?
The other thing is that it's coming up to a year (amazingly) since I first started this blog. At the beginning (like many other bloggers I suspect) I was a little nervous about the whole thing - who would be interested in what I have to say/make etc - but you have all been so kind with your comments, I have more followers than I could have dreamed of, and I've made some fantastic virtual friends along the way!
So, as a little thank you, and because I will be away on holiday at the actual time of my first blog anniversary, I'm doing a little giveaway early! These fabric caged lovebirds have had over 1000 viewings on Folksy, but no actual sales, which suggests to me that you like them but are a little expensive(?) So now one lucky person can win one for free!
The rules: everyone who leaves a comment will have their name put into a hat; followers get an extra go and anyone who puts a link on their own blog will get a further chance (shameless I know!)
The winner's name will be drawn on Saturday 15th May. So what are you waiting for?!
