It's Party Time :o)

Happy Blogaversary to me! Can you believe it's been FOUR years???? I never thought that I would have lasted this long. I've seen a lot of friends come and go but there have been a lot that have stayed the entire time. I've also met new friends along the way and I'm grateful for every new friendship that blossoms :o)

I love the fact that you can meet people you never would have had the opportunity otherwise to encounter. I love learning about other cultures and countries. I love hearing about other stitchers and their families. I love seeing the beautiful pieces that people are working on (even though it might be detrimental to my wallet!). I love seeing that there is still kindness in this world.

So...to keep this short and sweet...I'm going to celebrate my day by giving back to my wonderful readers! Without you, my thoughts and adventures would just be floating out there on the WWW ;o) Unfortunately there is only one prize :o( I wish I could give back to everyone that gives to me on a daily basis. I really do.

Have I kept you in suspense long enough???? ;o) The winner will receive a $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE TO HANDCRAFTS ONLINE!!!! If you haven't heard of this ONS before, go visit and take a tour. Mary Kathryn is a delight to deal with and she is the creator of Impie, Hattie & Bea! I never knew that until she revealed it on her Blog.

How do you get your name entered? There are two rules and believe me, they are not hard to follow ;o) First, you MUST be a follower. New or old, it doesn't matter. Second, you MUST leave a comment on THIS post only with a way for me to contact you if you are the winner. If I cannot contact you, another name will be drawn so don't forget!

Just imagine...FREE stash! Or as I like to look at it...buy $100 worth of stash and know that you've gotten the whole order for half off :o) More bang for your buck! LOL!

I'm going to leave this open until Monday, October 4. On Tuesday, October 5, I will post the name of the winner :o) Good luck everyone!

Pumpkin, I am so glad to have met you through the blogging world! 4 years is quite the accomplishment for a blog. I loved this post because, yes, kindness in the world seems to be a rare commodity these days, but it's rampant in the stitching community. Of course I am already a follower of your blog. Please enter me in the giveaway.

Happy blogversary! Four years is a long time! What a great giveaway :). I must add though, please don't enter me as I'm not stitching much at the moment so it wouldn't really be fair. Much better for the fab prize to go to someone who is really into their stitching at the moment ***hugs***
