A couple weeks ago I celebrated my one year blogging anniversary. I intended to post about it then and have a little giveaway, but I kept putting it off. You see, I wanted to write something really meaningful about this past year and talk about how much blogging has meant to me, but I just couldn't find quite the right words. In some ways I am actually surprised that it's already been a year. When I started this experiment in blogging I wasn't quite sure how long I would keep at it or if anyone would want to read it, but with each post and comment I found that I was given the unique opportunity to connect with other creative people and be a part of a wonderful community has been a constant source of inspiration for me. Now when I think back over the past year, I realize that I wouldn't give that connection up for the world!
So I would like to say thanks to each of you for giving me your support and encouragement over the past year simply by reading this blog. : ) I don't know what the future will hold for my creative endeavors and goals, but I am excited by the possibilites and truly happy that I will be able to share it all with you!
I thought that I might also have a small giveaway to say thanks! Many of you probably know that I recently started my own pattern shop. The support that this new project has received has been tremendous for me, so I thought what better way to celebrate a year of creative projects than to giveaway a copy of my newest embroidery pattern, Mr. Jack. Personally, I think Jack goes very well with a little Tula Pink "Nightshade", so after pulling a few prints from my stash I decided that this trio would be a very nice accompaniment.
Don't you just love that selvedge too!
So if you would like to win a PDF copy of my Jack O'Lantern Embroidery Pattern and three fat quarters of Nightshade here's how:
