One Glorious Year!

Hello friends,

I am celebrating a full year of blogging. What a wonderful year it has been! I have loved recording my projects, adventures, family and thoughts with all of you! Thank you for all your lovely comments throughout the year. I have truly enjoyed this journey with all of you and look forward to another year of blogging. As I look back on this, I was so timid to put myself out there in cyber space, but it has turned out to be such a "rewarding" and "technical" experience.

So to celebrate I am having a give-away to those of you who comment and follow me on my blog. All you have to do is leave me a message and become a follower of my blog if you are not already and I will announce the winner on October 10th!

Would you like to see my give-away? When I was on vacation this summer I was already planning my purchase. In Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts USA, The Black Dog is very popular. It is a mascot, restaurant, tavern, bakery and shop with all types of fashion and gadgets. I thought what could I get that most people could use one of. There, of course, were so many options, I choose this pretty pink black dog key chain. It is made of beautiful ribbon, strapping and toggle and very durable.  Here's the link to The Black Dog www.theblackdog.com

AND here is the Give-Away and ❤❤thank you again for giving me this opportunity❤❤
