One Year Blogiversary -THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

To celebrate my one year of blogging I'm posting giveaways to thank all my friends and followers for your support since I started blogging a year ago today. How I started blogging was DD Kit was home with us last Christmas. Kit had been blogging for a long time and had two blogs going at the time. She kept telling me that I should start blogging and share what I do. I have already created a blog with the name Notjustnat, but didn't do anything with it. Kit took me through a few steps and I have never look back. I can't imagine life without blogging!

The giveaways will be drawn on the evening of Sunday 3rd. January. In the meantime I will have a little break from blogging while my family are here with us. Because this giveaways is close to Christmas, the gifts are somewhat Christmas related. My gifts are what I have them for myself and would like to share them with you too.

This is how to enter:
  • If you are not yet one of my followers please sign-in as my follower to be eligible for this giveaways.
  • Post about my giveaways somewhere on your blog to spread the word around to your friends.
  • Leave a comment on this post to let me know that you are entering for the giveaways.
  • Make sure you include your email for me to contact you if you are a winner.
Below are what you can win:
An embroidery stitches and projects book Made in France, that I've got for my birthday and love it. I found another copy and got it for the giveaways prize. A pair of Chinese scissors and a fob of Chinese coin. Last item is one of the heart ornaments I made at Christmas.
This is what the cover of the book Made in France looks like. This book contains 3 colors to choose from. Blue, Red and Tan. It's ideal for a Christmas project. The small Chinese embroidery scissors are ideal for hand embroidery and the heart ornament can be used for next Christmas.
A peek inside the book. Red cross-stitches patterns you can make something Christmasie with.
Alphabet and number pattern to create the names of your loved ones for handmade cards or stockings.
Some cross-stitch patterns of baubles and Babushka dolls in red or whatever color you wish to use.

I guess this will become my giveaways tradition in the future. One in August for my birthday and one in December for Blogiversary. Thank you all for your support and the kind words you have left in your comments. I have been enjoying blogging. I have met and made so many wonderful friends through blogging and this is a small thank you gesture from me to all of you...!
