It's My Blogiversary & a Giveaway



You know those annoying people who tell you it’s going to be their birthday the entire week prior just in case you might forget.  I’m totally that person.   I get a whole birthday week.

This week is not my birthday but it is my blogiversary week!  One whole glorious year of this here blog! 



Here was my first post on January 28th 2011.  I still love that pillow.

As a thank you for reading and to celebrate I want to  

give away a $25 Gift Card to one of my awesome readers!

I could never put into words how much I appreciate you reading my blog.  Your comments and emails are such a gift.  Thank you!
 
I also want to thank a few blogs for the opportunity to strut my stuff at their link parties.   There are several parties out there but here’s where I like to play every week.

My Repurposed life- Catch as Catch Can

There are so many people that have encouraged and inspired me this past year and although I can't list them all I do want to send a shout out to Gail from My Re-purposed life blog.   This woman is my hero.  She inspires me.   Her's is the first blog I found with a woman who like to build things.  She made me realize that I could have a blog of my own.  She’s also the first person I felt comfortable emailing just to ask a question.  I was a little scared cause I'm a little bit shy about stuff like that but I just knew she would help me and she has.  So thank you Gail.  I’m sure you all know about her blog and fabulous link party but if not you should play there.  


Blogging is so funny, most days I love it then some days I feel a overwhelmed by it.  Just when I think "why am I doing this" someone will leave an encouraging comment or send a sweet email and I fall in love with it all over again.
 

To enter the give away:   you must either be a follower or subscriber of my blog and leave a comment in this post.   That’s it.  I will announce the winner on Saturday January 28th.


Thanks again for stopping by my little blog!

  3. Mimi - happy blogiversary!!!! I really enjoy your blog. I've been blogging about a year but really just started to share recipes and how-to's with family and friends. It's only late last fall when I discovered the blogosphere and found all these wonderful blogs out there that I didn't know existed. I must say I kinda became addicted to reading them and have had to be more selective. Now I have ones I follow every day (like yours) and ones I look at once a week and a few I'm still undecided about. Then there are the 6 or 7 I let myself discover every week.

    I know just what you mean about birthdays. I turned 50 this month but it was too close to Christmas so I rescheduled the festivities to February so I can gather a large group for the party I'm having my niece plan ;)

  4. Happy Blogiversary!!! I love your blog to pieces and Gail has been my biggest inspiration, too. I'm so into building and DIYing now that I just bought a sliding compound mitre saw - don't have a clue how to use it, but I've got it!!! lol

    Thank you for inspiring me and for this sweet giveaway.
