It’s Time to Celebrate with a Resourceful Blog Giveaway

November 4, 2011

Well well well, eleven months in from when I started my blog and I’ve hit 50,000 views. Eleven months and people have looked at  my blog 50,000 times! That makes me very happy indeed. So happy, in fact, that I feel it is time for a blog giveaway, to share the love and give something back to all my wonderful supporters. It’s also my birthday in a few days time so even more reason to celebrate. Unfortunately I was at work when my site stats went over 50,000, and by the time I got home and got a screen shot I had 50,004 views, but the screen shot below still shows that I really did hit over 50,000 views. I know this might not seem much to some of you out there, but for me it’s still a record that I’ve been waiting to hit, and worthy of celebration!


So, what’s the giveaway then, I hear you ask. Good question. This giveaway is for one of my little shoulder bags, worth £15, made by me, in a colour of your choice (and a fabric of my choice), fully lined with a magnetic closure. These bags really are lovely, and even if it’s not something you’d use, enter the giveaway, it’s nearly Christmas, the shoulder bag would make a lovely present for someone.

The giveaway os for a small shoulder bag like these

the bag is fully lined inside

To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is leave a nice comment, on any of my blog posts, between now and midnight on Monday 7th November (GMT time). Anyone is welcome to enter, wherever you live in the world. The winner’s name will be pulled out of a hat at random on Tuesday and emailed. Please remember to leave your email in the contact information when you leave a comment.

I’m really excited about this, hope you are too! I look forward to reading all your comments.

*This Giveaway is now closed. Thanks for taking part!*

    I started following your blog at the start of this year and you have been an inspiration to me – not just to be more creative this year (which I have – thank-you!) but to try to include a little of what I love doing every week and not wait for Enough Time to miraculously descend on me. Please tell me you will continue next year?

    Congrats on reaching your target btw 🙂

    • November 6, 2011 7:42 pm

      Thank you Liz for such a lovely comment, I’m glad I have been an inspiration to you and helped you be more creative! I will definately be continuing next year, I have grand plans for new challenges and projects! 🙂
