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!

I had almost a hundred comments to my post about the draw for the biscornu! Thank you everyone for the wonderful response for this worthy cause. Tonight me and my gorgeous cousin Bjarki cut up the printed pages of comments (there were 10 of them!) and folded them to get ready for the draw.
