Happy Thursday- the weekend is just around the corner! And I have to say I'm really looking forward to Saturday's giveaway (not that today's or tomorrow's giveaways aren't fun... I'm just excited for Saturday, which is my actual blogiversary!)
I've had a lot of firsts in this last year of blogging.
I tried some new crafts :
Pysanky- Ukrainian Dyed Easter Eggs
And took some classes doing things I've wanted to try for a really long time:
Made my first cake
Had my first feature on another site
And guest post
I've also done my first online collaboration.
Every month Joanne, from Ready, Set, Craft! and I do a coordinated post called Cupkins. Together we decide on a theme for each month then Joanne makes a cupcake and I make a muffin around the theme. We post them the first Monday of each month. ( You can click here if you want to check out my Cupkins posts, click here if you want to see Joanne's)
Apple cider muffins from September
I got to know Joanne simply from blogging- first sharing comments, then emails and now collaborating on the cupkins posts. Over the past year we've become friends and it's exactly this kind of creative camaraderie that I hoped to get out of having this blog.
So in honor of firsts and friends I'm giving away this "Cupkins" inspired set of goodies,
the Martha Stewart cupcake paper punch (I got mine a while ago and it quickly became one of my favorite punches)
multi pack of glitter in a wide range of colors
cute cupcake stamp and mini ribbon
and some paper!
Here's How To Enter:
Leave a comment telling me about a new craft you'd like to try (good for one entry). If you're a follower or become a follower you get an extra entry (total of two chances to win)!
This giveaway ends Thursday January 21st at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time and is open to US residents (sorry international readers). I'll pick a winner using a random number generator and announce it on Friday afternoon in my post.
Good Luck and Thanks for Entering!
Oh and here's a hint for tomorrow: Rock paper scissors can be a crafty game. And just because I'm so excited about Saturday I'll give a hint for that one too- It's going to glitter like Florentine Gold... and 23 other colors.
