1 year blog anniversary giveaway

This month marks one year of blogging. I have sincerely enjoyed this blogging journey, and am looking forward to many more years.

To celebrate, and thank you, my readers, I am giving away a crafting kit:
I am including a few sheets of music, a few vintage receipts, trim tags with heart charms, baggies of button in black and white, paper flowers, silk flowers, book beads, and a grubby tag set with a photo charm dangling from the book ring. All of the goodies will be sent in this box:
To participate, please leave your comment here, and a way to contact you. I will be drawing a name March 19th, two weeks from today. Sign ups now closed.

*****Winner is Jenny at Fated Follies.*****

In your comment, would you indulge by telling me how you found my blog, and what keeps you reading?

  2. Hi Jessica,

    Congratulations on a year of Blogging! Well done!

    I actually found your lovely blog after you had visited my blog. TattingChic kindly invited bloggers to go visit my blog to see some tatting an Aunt had given me.
    So I am glad I found your blog as you always have such pretty things to show us and I love to visit Kids Napping? I'm scrapping ( such a good name)

    Have a great weekend

    I discovered your blog through Swapdex and linked across. This is my first swap so I'm very excited at the outcome, I just love colours and this seemed the perfect introductory swap.

  11. Hi, Jessica! I found your blog from an old e-mail you sent me. Not being much of a blogger at that time, I had forgotten you were starting one. In the meantime, I was searching eBay and Etsy looking for items for sale from you. When cleaning out my e-mail box, I found an old e-mail with your blog address. What an exciting day that was because now I can check your blog and see all of the beautiful items you have been creating! I love all my purchases from you, especially the paper bag album which is actually shown on your blog!! This creation has the distinction of being my favorite eBay purchase to date. As anyone who is reading this knows, you are such a talented artist and a super-sweet person, too! Congratulations and Happy Anniversary with your blog!
