Third Blogaversary Giveaway

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.  NO FURTHER ENTRIES.  WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON 11 JULY 2016.  THANK YOU FOR TAKING PART.

I am so excited!  Saturday just gone - 2nd July - was my Third Blogaversary!!!

Yay!!

Where has the time gone?  I am not sure at all.  So much has happened in the last three years.  I started my blog, it grew, I found more of you, you found me.  We have shared, laughed, cried, commiserated and congratulated through all of that.

I started Five On Friday, you joined in and look where that has taken us.  Then this year I started my small business and that is growing.  All with your support and care and love for which I am so incredibly grateful.

Getting to know you and you getting to know me, having you to share things with, good and bad, has been so wonderful.  More than I can tell you!

Thank you!!!

My hope is that we continue to share and interact and greet each other for a long time yet to come.  Let us hope that we do!

To celebrate my blogaversary and to share with you - which is far more important! - I have three things to give away to three of you!

First up is a heart garland.  It is quite long, made up of seven different hearts - three just wasn't enough! - and is made of different shades of purples and mauves.






Second is this bag.  It is useful for either crafting projects, or for travelling to pop things like your chargers into, you could take bits and pieces in your bag in it, put your chunky necklaces in to keep them tidy in a drawer, lots of different uses not just for crafting.



Third is your choice of one of my patterns.  You can choose any one you like and if you would like to wait for the Meg Shawl Pattern to come out you are welcome to.  (These ones below are just some of the patterns to choose from, not the only ones!)






I know that the pattern prize might not be for everyone so if you would like to be entered for that say so in your comment and I will only include those people in the draw for the pattern.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post and be a follower of this blog and tell me how you follow me.  For extra chances to win follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or subscribe to the Podcast on Youtube or join the Love Made My Home Ravelry Group and tell me that you have in your comment and each place you follow will be an extra entry to the draw.  Links to all of these places are in the sidebar, top right.

Everyone who is a blog follower and leaves a comment will be entered into the draw for the garland and the bag at least once.

I am asking that you be a follower because this is to thank those of you who have been following my blog all of these years and interacting and sharing and being all around just wonderful!!  You don't have to have left a comment before, so those of you who just read normally are welcome to take part too!

This giveaway will be open until 10pm UK time on Sunday 10th July 2016.  I will remind you of the giveaway during the week.  I will then close the comments and make the draw and announce the winners on Monday 11th July 2016.  You will have seven days to claim your prize by e-mailing me with your name and address.  I will draw either by writing out the names and putting them into my giant teacup, or if there are lots of you I will use a random number generator.

Thank you all for being so wonderful, really I do mean it!  Without you this blog would be nothing!  as of today Blogger tells me that there have been over half a million - yes over 500,000 page views which is just incredible to me and I am so very thankful for you all!!!!!

Here's to many more years of happy and fun years of blogging, caring and sharing together with love making the world go round!

THANK YOU!!!

Amy xx

  10. Congrats on your 3rd anniversary. I'm a recent convert to the blog and love stopping by to read it. I wasn't following you until you mentioned it - added you now to google +. If I was a crocheter I would love your pattern (I really like all your Little Women shawls), sadly I'm not as you (lol) haven't started teaching online classes yet. Love your bags and crochet hearts though.

    I hope your blog success continues and your business grows in leaps and bounds. Raising a glass to many more years.

  17. How fabulous! Many Happy Bloggy Returns. It's all such great fun. Well I've left a comment but I follow you by having your blog down the side of my blog so that probably doesn't entitle me to join in the giveaway but it all looks a great idea. Here's to a few more good years. x

    Blessings on the rest of your week Sweetie. xoxo
