Just over a year ago, I was sat talking with a friend whilst her three children played with my three children, there was Playdoh all over the floor, Barbie was wearing Ken’s clothes, Ken was dressed as a Disney Princess and I had just shared a sip of my homemade salted caramel vodka…. it was a great play date.
My friend has a gorgeous parenting travel blog and I confided in her that I really wanted to set up a craft blog with tutorials for mums and kids. She gave me great advice and told me to just go for it. This friend is one of those wonderful people who makes you feel like you can do anything…
…. a week later I had set up a wordpress account and written my first post featuring crocheted hearts. It turned out I knew nothing about blogging, the blogging community, SEO, social media algorithms, domain authority and the complex world of blogging etiquette, it has been a steep learning curve but I have loved ever minute of it.
I couldn’t let my first birthday go by without marking it, and what better way to say thank you to all you fabulously loyal readers than with a giveaway. Oh OK!!!! How about THREE giveaways!

You may remember that as part of my ‘Made for Crafters by Crafters‘ series I featured Soyun Park Forrest and her Etsy shop AtelierDeSoyun. She makes stunning Crochet Hook and Knitting Needle cases from Organic Linen, Hemp and Cotton. Her work was love at first sight and when she agreed to send me a crochet hook case for this giveaway, I was stunned at the quality of the piece, it was even more beautiful in real life. If you like her work you should check out her adorable blog where she shares her crafting journey.
I am part of a team of Bloggers who make up the Minerva Craft Bloggers Network.

The final prize in my Blog Birthday Giveaway, comes from another which featured in my ‘Made for Crafters by Crafters’ Series.
