blog anniversary giveaway!

OK.. finally.. I promised a blog anniversary giveaway.. and here it is a beary cherry little pinkeep!


I just have to say thank you to all of you that stop by to visit and especially to those who leave comments! I love your blogs and I have had soo much fun getting to know such talented and creative people this past year. people who dont blog, have NO clue! they think we're nuts.. but our lives are enriched by a different kind of friendship. We are inspired and challenged by the blogs of others and the comments we recieve from each other. Joining swaps is always fun and challanging.. I've made things for swaps that I would have never tried otherwise! Speaking of swaps.. thanks so much to those of you who have joined my swaps and also to those of you I've had the honor of swapping with through other's swaps. SO MUCH FUN!!
Ok, sounds like I'm giving some corny little acceptance speech of some sort! but really.... just Thank You.. for being out there playing with me!! big HUGS to all of you!
now leave me a comment and I will throw your names in a hat and pick a winner next friday!! Please share my giveaway on your blogs.. you can even post the pic if you want.. send some peeps on over!
Have a great day!
and to all of my girls doing the pinkeep swap.. mine are done and will be going in the mail.. tomorrow or monday.. I think I need address for amelia and sherrie.. please email me! Be sure to send me pics of what youve made girls, so I can post them! I can t wait to see what everyone is doing!!!
hugs! hugs! hugs!!

Hi Vivian! You probably don't remember me, but I sure do want my name in the hat for that adorable bear pincushion! I've kept your blog up in my explorer window for the past couple of hours just so I could enjoy your music! I could have hand-picked every song in your player! Congrats on reaching one year- here's to many more in happy Blogland!

I love blogging because all these amazing girls get me and my crafty ways! I would love to win that pinkeep, I love all your creations!

Tho I would love to win your pincuhion, I feel like I have already won...by getting to know you this year. Swapping with you has been such fun and my Raggedy has a prominent spot in my foyer so she's the first to be seen (and she does love it there.)Congrats!!! I look forward to the next years bloggig. You're the reason I have a blog and spend so dang much time viewing others blogs.I just am in awe of the wonderful stuff out there.
Oh by the way, please trow my name in the hat too, please. ...and thanks for a great year!!!

Its my first visit to your blog, and I'm glad to be here! I am new to blogging, and also left thinking, why the heck wasn't I doing this before? I have met some wonderful people, bought some great products for the holidays, and even won some giveaways-I love looking at everyone's crafts and wonderful ideas-I am so not crafty at all, but sometimes, with a little guidance and a step by step tutorial, I can be persuaded! Congrats on your anniversary and I will visit again!

Sue said...

Hi Viv! You have the cheeriest blog! I love the music and the art you make is wonderful. It's always refreshing to stop by.
Many blessings- Sue(BountifulAcres)

Hi Viv, thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comment. I've lerked on your's before and almost signed up for your miniture swap a while back but I didn't think I could produce anything that would be close to your talent in miniture animals. I so love your anniversary pinkeep. you are such a talented sewer. I am just getting back into hand sewing and embroidery and making dotee dolls has really been fun. Hope we can be swap partners sometime. take care, Suze
