Blogoversary and Give Away

It doesn't seem possible that we could be celebrating our 2nd year blogoversary.

Blogging has been one of the most rewarding things we've ever done. We have made so many wonderful friends. We can't imagine what it would be like without you all in our lives.

We have many new friends who haven't been reading our blog for very long so we'd like to mention a few past posts that would help you get to know us better.

To those of you who have been reading us for awhile, I'd like to thank you for your loyalty and friendship.

To celebrate our blogoversary we would like to have a giveaway! This beautiful photo box that Lindsey altered is one of the items we are giving away as well as the
houseshoes I knitted and the pincushion I made, pictured below.

If you would like a chance to win these items, just leave a comment on this post and we will pick the winner on Christmas day.

We look forward to the next year and meeting more of you. We hope to bring you more crafts, ideas, lots of vintage goodness and of course, Barbie!
Thank you all so much! You are all so precious to us.
Twyla and Lindsey

Happy Celebration Lindsey and Twyla! This has been such a special year getting to know you both through your beautiful blog. I treasure each time I visit here.

Busy, busy this year end! Blessings to you both! Elizabeth

Scrap for Joy said...

I have really enjoyed all of your sugar kissed projects this month. After the holiday has settled a bit, I think I'll start on some of them starting with the Bingo card one. That was my favorite one I think. Your tutorials have been very easy to understand and the images you've shared are great! Happy Blogaversary Twyla and's to many more years of creating!

What a nice giveaway and on Christmas Day - what could be nicer?? Love your blog and all the Barbies.

❦TattingChic said...

Hello, Dearies! It is probably wayyyy too late for me to enter and if it is I will be okay because I do already have a PINK pair of those fabulous slippers! In fact, I have them on RIGHT NOW!!! They are keeping my feet toasty warm for Christmas Day and making me feel the warmth of your friendship, too!
I actually just wanted to say HAPPY BLOGOVERSARY Ladies! Thank you for your bloggy friendship over the years! Not only have I enjoyed visiting your super fabulous blog, I have immensely enjoyed your visits and comments on my blog! You ladies are wonderful and you are on my Christmas card list that didn't get sent out because...well...other things happened...let's just say that! No Cards got sent out this year I am sad to say, but if they were you would've gotten one. Instead I hope you will take this blog comment that says VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS to you both and your family!
~TattingChic ♥

Gayle (GardenofDaisies) said...

Oh, I love those!! My Momma used to knit slippers for my sisters and I. When we got a little older, she taught us how to make them. But it's been at least 20 years since I made them. I wonder if I can still find that pattern?
