1 Year Already?!?! let's celebrate with a giveaway!!

GIVEAWAY GLOSED

So it turns out I was having so much fun with summer that I completely missed my one year mark with this blog.  So happy Blogiversary to me (2 months late)!! I started this blog over a year ago because I loved being a SAHM but I needed something that was just for me. This blog had been a great motivator to get my craft on and try new recipes. 

I have really enjoyed all the comments you leave and making a few new friends along the way!! Thank you so much for reading! In honor of my blogiverasry I am giving away a custom zipper pouch to one of my followers.  The winner gets to pick the colors and I will sew it up and mail it off to you!! I can't believe how great the last year has been.  I never thought anyone would even read this so thank you so much for being there so I don't look like a crazy person talking to myself :)

Before I tell you about the giveaway... Here are my most favorite things I have done this year:

In Pizza 101 I shared my basic dough recipe and all the different ways I make pizza.  Pizza is my most favorite thing to make for people who come to eat at my house.  

I got to guest host for the first time ever this year.  I am still pinching myself.  I can't believe I got to do a pattern review for The Summer of No Pants over at Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!.

In lemon week I shared some lemon recipes and crafts.  My favorite is Lemon Lavender Cookies and also the Limoncello which we just finished and I need to make some more!


The Zipper Pouch Tutorial is one of my most popular posts and one of the first things I shared.

PB's owl Halloween costume!! I had so much fun making this.  I am starting to plan this year's costume.  I really want to do another animal but I am having a hard time deciding.  

Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bacon cookies.  I never would have had the motivation to make these if I didn't have this blog.  That would be a huge tragedy because they are life changing cookies!!

I look forward to Orange Friday every week.  I have shared almost 60 orange items in my house and I'm not going to run out anytime soon!  I don't know whether to feel pride or shame for that one.  I'll go with pride, I'm not a hoarder yet :)

Now onto the giveaway!!! One custom made zipper pouch could be yours :)
