Bloggaversary! Draw! Fun! YAY!

Well, it is coming up.
I started blogging June 13th 2005 on Blogger. At first I started writing in Icelandic (as you can see if you read some of my old entries) but I soon changed to Icelandc and English and then only to English since I hated writing everything twice. I was pregnant with Karítas when I started blogging, on bed rest and horribly bored. The only thing that kept me going was my stitching and I was doing so much of it that I wanted to document some of it and my progress etc. I had been reading some stitching blogs and decided that I wanted to start blogging.

I gave up using blogger and started blogging here of February 5th 2007. On March 9th I managed to move all my old posts over from blogger to this blog so I am going to have that date as my Bloggaversary.

So, here is the deal. Leave a comment to this post (and this post only) for a chance to win *something* from me. I am going to put together a package of a little of this and a little of that. No pictures, it is going to be a surprise for the winner. It will include something stitched and finished by me. And maybe some stash too. Probably both, oh yes, both.

So comment away. I will draw names on March 9th – that is next Monday people!

I also want to thank each and every one of you for reading, commenting, not commenting, e-mailing, the cards, the good thoughts, the thoughtfulness, the kindness, the amazing spirit of all of you. I want to thank you for making blogging such a joy. I love reading your blog (yeah, that means you!) and I love hearing from you even if you do not have a blog. If you are thinking about starting a blog for your crafts, I say go for it! I have never regreted staring mine. It has gotten me in contact with some amazing people and I have learned so much from you all! So so much!
