Hello, friends and happy Friday!
The day I decided to start this blog, I would of never thought that soon after I would become part 
of this wonderful blogging community.

When I published that first post on 27 September 2011, you can view it here, I was scared to death 
of embarrassing myself. LOL  But at the same time it was so wonderful and exciting.

Since then, my blog has become such a big part of my life and I love the fact that I have been able to meet such wonderful and caring people along the way from all over the world.

This past week, my blog reached a milestone, I had over a million views. Wow!  
To me, it is amazing to think so many of you took the time to visit my little blog.

 And to thank you, I decided to host a giveaway.


 Since Spring and Easter are around the corner, I thought it would be nice to add some Spring items to this giveaway.

 The giveaway will include two Spring colors 18" x 18" pillow covers, made by me. :)

 A set of two Spring kitchen towels.

A " Happy Easter" wooden banner.

 Two pretty pink mason jars with galvanized lids.

 And a set of vinyl kitchen jar labels also made right in my craft room. :) Directions on how to apply them 
to your jars will be included with the labels.

 I will also be adding a couple of little surprises to the box for the lucky winner.

To enter this giveaway all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post. 
I will announce the winner next Friday, March 11th, 2016.

Again, thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart for all the support and friendship you give me 
all through the year. I appreciate all of you!

Have a great weekend everyone!
