Grow Your Blog Party and Giveaway!

I decided to join the Grow Your Blog Party at 2 Bags Full at the very last hour.  Really I'm not a procrastinator but I just found out about this fun opportunity.  When I first started this blog I thought maybe a few of my friends or family might follow me but that is about it.  I have been so overwhelmed by the wonderful followers I have met from all over the world, and figured it would be fun to try to meet some more too!



I originally wanted my blog to me mostly pictures and info on cultures I have lived on with some of my craft projects on the side.  But the crafts including cross stitch, cardmaking, and sewing have pretty much taken over.  One of my goals for the new year was to add in more posts from the different places I have visited.  Welcome to the new followers and thank you to my current ones and I hope you all enjoy taking this ride along with me.

A little while back I promised you a giveaway and that is still in the works but for the meantime I am offering a small giveaway for this Grow Your Blog Party event!

Just comment below for a chance to win a cross stitch chart for Mirabilia Designs Cherub Collection by Nora Corbett, and a cute little teal owl wallet!  The chart is perfect to stitch up and make into a Christmas ornament, and the wallet is a gift from me to you in my favorite color teal and my favorite animal that I stitch up quite a bit the owl.  You do not have to be a follower of this blog but be sure to check back on February 1st to see if you are the lucky winner.  Also I will ship it to you wherever you live anywhere in the world :)




Good Luck and thank you for stopping by my blog!
