A year ago yesterday I first put fingers to my keyboard and made my first blog post.
I'd be holding off FOREVER as it seemed like it would be more work and not enough fun but I couldn't have been more wrong!
In just a year I've made over 400 posts, have over 250 followers and over 54000 hits!
I've met some fabulous people, seen some superb creations and hopefully brought a smile to others through sharing mine.
To say a great big thank you I have a little package to giveaway.
To be in with a chance of winning please add a link and photo to your sidebar or a quick post about it and add yourself as a follower too if you aren't already.
The candy with run for 2 weeks and I'll draw a winner over the weekend of June 12th with the winner being revealed June 14th.
You could win this little bundle!
