just a small portion to celebrate
Well, I must say, I have been completely overwhelmed by the response to my challenge in the last blog post! I am sure that reaching 100 followers was much too easy a challenge, and now I'm going to have to give my gorgeous journal away to one of you by the end of this month! Drat and double drat! (I really love you all to bits, really, I do!)
To celebrate the 100 followers milestone, 2 years of blogging, and the stickability to last the distance, I thought I should treat myself to just a very tiny slice of carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Now it could be argued that the slice is actually, much larger than what it looks in the photo, but because the food police, (and you know who I mean, don't you Nathalie!!) are likely to see this, I had to try and camouflage the size by photographing it at a very strange angle indeed! LOL
Anyway, now that I'm giving away my journal, to some very lucky follower, I thought I should set about making another one to take its place, (so that I can get attached to the new one, and make parting a truly joyous occasion). I found this, a piece of stitching I started last year, and never finished. I think it will make the best embellishment in my new journal.
I might just have to show you when it's finished.
I am slowly working my way through your lovely comments, and I hope to visit everyone's blogs too, but if you don't hear from me, it's because you have a no-reply setting on your comments, and no email on your blogs. Which means, if I can't contact you, you will need to keep checking back here on a regular basis right thru March to see who has won the gifts.
Here's to my friends, may the rest of your week be full of happiness! (and small slices of carrot cake! LOL)
