(Keep reading for a very exciting giveaway & a tutorial!)
I can hardly believe it, but January 25th marks my blog’s 3rd birthday! Lately I have been thinking a bit about my blog and the different directions it has taken the past 3 years. I am pretty sure I probably say this every year, but I never imagined when I started this blog how much a part of my life it would become in some ways and how it would grow.
Megan posted something that I thought was just so wonderful… (I hope she doesn’t mind that I share this with all of you:) She posted 4 things that she does not apologize for & one of those things was “Calling people I have never met my friends. Because you are.” I loved this when I read it, because it totally describes how I feel about this blogging community. It is wonderful to have friends around the world, some of you that I have never met & some of you that I have had the wonderful opportunity of meeting! :)
A lot has changed in my life in the past 3 years since I started blogging & it is great to be able to share it with all of you. In a lot of ways this blog (& reading so many of your blogs) has helped me to discover some of the things in life that I love, including sewing, crafting & photography. I might have discovered how much I love these things without a blog, but having this blog to share in these things has been wonderful. I could go on & on about this, but this post would probably be really long so I just want to say a big thanks to everyone who comes here to share a bit in my life :) Thanks!
(And I think a big thank you needs to go out to my wonderful husband, who actually was the first one to ever tell me about blogging & is also very understanding when I need to take another photo for my blog or stay up just another half hour to blog something from my day & reply to all your lovely comments.)
So in celebration of my blog birthday, I thought I would do something special this year. I am going to be giving away 2 winter linen scarves that I made… (I actually made 3, but I am keeping one since it just didn’t seem right that I didn’t own any of my own winter linen scarves!)
In order to be entered in the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post before next Wednesday (January 28th) telling me what you enjoy the most about my blog. (Is it the sewing projects, the little glimpses of my house, photos of my cats, my photography, the short glimpses into my daily life? This does have the slight advantage of letting me know what you all enjoy reading or seeing on my blog too:)
But wait there is more! If you post this lovely little banner in your blog sidebar with a link to my blog and leave a comment here to let me know…
…you will get 4 more entries in the giveaway (for a total of 5 entries) increasing your odds of winning just a bit more :)
To post this banner in your sidebar, insert the following text in your sidebar…
<a href="http://sewclickcreate.com/blog/"><img src="http://sewclickcreate.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/081212_04_171430-edit.jpg" /></a>
If that is not enough and you just have to have a winter linen scarf then you can make your own winter linen scarf using the tutorial I wrote up just for this occasion right here! :)
*Comments are now closed* I will be announcing the winner’s tomorrow (Thursday)! :)
