Three years on-----


Today the 5th of January is the third anniversary of when I started my blog.
How time flies.
As you all know I started this blog because I wanted to do Sharon Boggan's TAST challenge in 2007--well three years on and I am about to start on her new TAST challenge--well in March anyway it will be starting.
In 2009 I failed miserably with the challenge that Sharon had set--I just couldn't get interested in the techniques side of it.
I must admit that starting a blog has changed my life as far as my creativity goes.
I have done things that I never dreamed of--mixed media being one of them.
The challenges that I have been involved in are incredible and I have "met" so many wonderful people and made lasting friendships because if it.
I want to thank all the people who read my ramblings and whether you leave a comment or not is not an issue with me-as long as you find it interesting enough to return again and again that's what really counts.
So-- I have decided to have a giveaway to celebrate.
If you want to participate just leave a comment and I will get the man of the house to pick from the hat on Saturday the 9th -Australian time that is.
I will make up a parcel to suit the winner-as some people only work in fabric and fibres others in papers etc.
Thanks for being part of my life.
