Blogiversary Cake (and a little giveaway!)

My little blog is 2 years old!
And what better way to celebrate than with cake...



...and cake is the reason I can celebrate!

Just before I started this little blog, I started crafting. I had always made little things and tried new ways, taken art class and learn to sew but I know there was a certain moment where this, this little adventure, all began.

For some reason I can't remember, I bought a few pieces of felt and a handful of embroidery thread knowing I want to make a cupcake. And I did this little cupcake here...



Its not perfect. I keep thinking I'll replace one day, make the perfect felt cupcake but I probably won't because I love what this one started. This little cake meant when I had the urge to sew something, I did it and I kept wanting to sew every time I saw it. I was so proud of this cupcake I showed it to people which led to the opportunity to sell and share these little things. It started my blog, my shops, friendships and lots of happiness. I am very happy with who I am today because of all I have acheived as a crafty person, and this little cake started that.

The cake may have started it, but this blog has also given me so much more than I could have imagined.  A lots of the happiness comes from sharing, being part of something and that isn't really the cupcake or the blog itself but you friends who take the time to visit, if you're sweet enough to follow or just stop by the once and I am so thankful for you.



As you know when I am feeling particularly lucky because of you guys, I like to do a little giveaway to say thank you. Today is definitely one of those days and this time I would like to stitch someone a little cakey friend.

You can pick the colours and whether you would like a Happy the birthday cake, a Baby cake or a Cheery cherry cake softie.

All you have to do is leave a comment below and because I am taking a two week blog break starting any day now (things have been delayed because of the snow) I will leave this open until my return around the 27th, when I'll do the random number picker thing.

Thank you for a lovely two years!

  4. I got back into my blog and shop because I started doing cross-stitching again. My sister has the first piece I cross-stitched last year. I forgot about how much I enjoyed it all.

    Congrats on the blog anniversary! I'll have to consider doing a giveaway of my own when mine comes up. ;D

    I'll continue to drool over the cupcakes a little now.
