A Blogoversary? (mini giveaway?!)

That's right! My blogoversary is March 12! An entire year of blogging! When I started I was this far on Mario:

Now this far:

This far on College:

Now this far:

And I was working on Dark Queen, which I have since scrapped to do a restart since I HATED working 2 over 1 on 25 count:

I didn't have any other projects in the works and no Boyfriend, either! I was living on my own and working as a paralegal in a family law firm. Now I have an amazing Boyfriend, a million (ok, 7) projects on-the-go, am unemployed and living with my parents and *drumroll* SERIOUSLY considering applying for a master's program! Crazy how much can change in a year.

As such, I will be holding my VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY.

Don't get too excited, it's nothing special. I will be sending 3 (THREE!) winners a home-made baked good. Lame, I know. But I'M super excited about it so just pretend you are, too.

All you have to do is comment on this post (if you want to comment on this post and NOT be entered just mention that in the comment and I won't enter you). Please please PLEASE let me know if you have any sort of food preference or food allergy. I don't want to send anyone allergic to chocolate chocolate chip cookies or any vegans things with animal products (and yes, I DO bake vegan things). The last rule is I can only send things within the United States. The reasons for this (I'm not trying to discriminate against anyone outside the U.S.) are that I don't want to break any international food laws and I also don't want anything to go back or stale because of length of time it takes to ship - and food poisoning, my dear friends, is NOT fun.

I hope at least someone out there is as excited about this as I am. I will have Boyfriend draw names at 9pm, PST on Friday, March 16th.

Thanks for a year of reading and commenting, everyone! I've had a blast and look forward to another year of bloggy happiness!

EDIT: If you're International - I'll think of something else (don't yet know what) to send you :) It'll be small, but it'll be from the heart!

Happy blogoversary! You should be very proud of the fantastic progress you have made on your projects, and how far you have come in your life in such a short time!
Sad panda for no baked goods, but it is the thought that counts, lol

Look at all the changes you've had in the past year. And you've got some beautiful stitching projects on the go, too. Love reading your posts and watching your amazing progress on College. Congratulations and ((hugs))!!

Pauline said...

congratulations on your blogversary!
And you have done a lot of stiching this year!

Heli said...

Happy blogoversary! A year is a surprisingly long time, it feels short but when you look back, you always see that a lot has gotten done during it. Some years bring more changes than others, and it looks like the past one has been a year of changes for you. Congratulations on all the beautiful stitching you've done and on all the positive changes you've made!

You know I don't usually enter giveaways, but this is one that I definitely want in on!!! And since if I win, I won't be sharing my goodie with hubby, I think you should send an extra piece. HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!

Happy Blogoversary, sweetie. :D

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Darn I'm overseas! I want some mouldy cake LOL.
Put my name in and if I win send it to Joysze's hubby so he can have a piece for himself. hahaha.
Congrats on the blogaversary, mine's coming up soon. Believe me, no-one would want any of my cooking.

Wow look at all that stitching on College. I had no idea you completed so much. Awesome post to highlight all your achievements. If I recall you really disliked your job and that's why you left. I still consider that a major achievement to do what is right by you. You have had a fanatastic year on and off the cross stitch stage. I hope only sunshine and rainbows and lots and lots of wip/finishes posts from you for the next year!! LOL
