It's a Blog...blog....BLOGAVERSARY Partayyyy!

Seriously though...how do you spell the dang word...Blogeversary, Blogaversary....Blogiversary?  Surely someone must know .....even WIKIPEDIA didn't have it <gasp!>

Enough rambling....let's get to the good stuff!



October 2nd is the 1 year anniversary of my blog-adventure!  If you're bored and would like to check out my first post....wander on over here   (it's boring...not a single picture...what was I thinking?)


I thought long and hard and soft and short....... and at first I was going to go through my humongous stash of goodies...then I was going to do some shopping...but instead what I decided was to get someone what THEY'D like..... so for my 1 year celebration I'll be giving away a $50 gift certificate/card to anywhere that offers them! 

Winner receives a gift certificate/card of their choice!  Some ideas might be:











Basically.....as long as I can buy a gift card or certificate from a store (they have to accept US dollars...but they all do, don't they?).....you can choose it!

The usual rules....
  • Be a follower
  • Post a comment
  • Please include your email
  • Please include the store you choose, if you don't choose one...I'll choose one! :)
All entries will be given a number and the winner chosen by my good ole' number generator.

Drawing will end at midnight EST on Friday, October 5th (I know..my one year is on the 2nd, but that's the middle of the week...and this gives folks more time to enter!)

Winner will be announced sometime on Saturday!


Good luck...and thanks for hanging in there with me for the past year!

Oh wow such generosity.
I also have no idea how to spell it, so no help there.
I would love to be entered into the draw and the shop I choose would be 123Stitch as I would love to try QSnaps and they post to South Africa.

Wow! What a generous give away! Sign me up! I would want either HAED or 123Stitch - I love the charts from HAED, but I need some materials from 123Stitch to do them! Either one is fine with me!

Very kind giveaway. I love me some HAED patterns BUT I need materials, so if I win could I have a giftcertificate with either Cross Stitch Heaven, or Across Town Stitching(great deals on floss for us living in countries charging an arm and a leg for floss)?

Wow, what a generous giveaway prize! Congrats on your 1st blogaversary. Even the predictive text on my iPhone can't spell it!!!
Would love to be counted in the giveaway. My email is in my profile. How to choose... I haven't shopped at 123 stitch so maybe I would choose them or one of the other suppliers, or maybe a HAED chart or two!! Your drawing is on my birthday - will that be a good omen??
Fantastic giveaway & well done on a year of blogging!

I re-read your first post, you said maybe you'd post every month. Well you've managed 47 posts so that's nearly one a week. Guess you found something to say? LOL.

Prize-wise it has to be Crafty Kitten as I'm in the UK and a big fan. She does charts as well as fabric...

Some forklift training companies are in it for the short term, to make quick cash, and dont really mind how skilled you end up at the end of the day - which in my opinion is dangerous, and could lead to death or injury for yourself or for people working with you. Companies can save thousands of dollars per year if they can get past the stigma of used goods. With forklifts being one of the leading causes of occupational accidents and injuries, OSHA has mandated every employee handling forklift must get a certification to operate it. Forklifts are by far some of the most useful things to have in your warehouse, but they are also some of the most dangerous as well.
