My 1-year Blog Anniversary, my 200th Post & a Give-away!

Today we have a confluence of events. It's the one-year anniversary of my blog and this is my 200th post. In honor of all this I'm giving away 2 books from my own bookshelf. All you have to do is leave a comment under this post. I will randomly draw 2 names (one name for each book) on Tuesday, March 8th.


The first book I'm giving away is a 2007 edition of Crafting with Felt by Petra Berger.

The other book is The House Above the Trees by Ethel Cook Eliot!

And to top things off, today I am, as my friend Shannon would say, "famous in my own pincushion!" I felt so honored when Arianne, of the beautiful blog Still Parenting, asked if I would do a little interview with her. If you'd like to see the interview, please have a look here...

Thank you for celebrating with me... would you like a piece of cake?

  9. Yes indeed, Amanda, that's a lot of posts, but many of them are *very* short (and most of them are prior to the birth of the Wee Bloom!)

    And to all... I wish for my give-away I had a book to give each of you! So glad you've visited me today and so glad we've become friends! I feel blessed...

  25. Oh! Shannon! A real, live pin cushion? Really?! Really?! Because you don't know how happy that would make me... I really need a new pin cushion! Mine is in a sorry state: ugly, ancient, cheap and sort of "standard issue." You can see a photo of it in this post here http://webloomhere.blogspot.com/2010/06/tidy.html

    Kate, of Foxs Lane did a pin cushion-swap last March and I missed out. I was so sad.

    Ooooh, please tell me it's not a metaphoric pin-cushion but a real-live one! Now, if you'll please excuse me, I'm going to go skip circles around the kitchen!

  26. What kind of cake? Vanilla with vanilla frosting... not my favorite but we were out of chocolate (I prefer chocolate cake with vanilla frosting.) I also botched up the cake... I was busy flirting with my wee Bloom and so didn't read the recipe carefully. I added double the milk. To solve the problem, I added an extra cup of flour. The cake was not very sweet, but the icing solved that problem!
