1st Annual Blogiversary GIVEAWAY!


Hello everyone!  I can't believe next Saturday, May 1st will mark the first anniversary of my blog, 
Patina Moon! 
I remember reading other art blogs and being so inspired, I wanted to start my own, but what would it be about?  I'm not a professional photographer or an artist.  I'm just someone who likes to craft, garden, and take photographs, so I guess I just started with "what I knew" and went from there! 


I'd like to celebrate this one year Blogiversary with my first GIVEAWAY! 
For me, it's been all about letting out my creative sprit and not being afraid to share it with others.  Once I began to blog I realized there were so many like minded creative spirits out there just like me! 
I'd like to thank all my followers, and fellow bloggers out there who have visited Patina Moon over the past year and left me words of encouragement and sweet comments. 
Some of the things that I'd like to give are things that I've blogged about in the past, so I will put together a delightful arrangement of vintage lace, lavender from my garden, soldering "attempts" :-) and I'm working on one of my embroidered pillows just for you!  
Here's a sneak preview of what I have together so far...



I know, I need to get busy on this pillow if I'm going to be giving it away, but I just couldn't wait to share the fun with you now! 
So...
If you'd like to enter, please just leave me a comment after this post and I will enter your name for a random drawing to be held on Saturday evening May 1st.  Also, if you decide to share my GIVEAWAY with others and you post a link to my blog on yours, I will enter your name a second time in the drawing,  just leave me a comment that you have done so. 


Last time I told you I would share with you a "project" that I was working on, so here it is.  I'm really having fun making these little embroidered creations/pillows. 


I think these are going to be more of an art quilt/fabric collage than a pillow this time. 

***
Hope you're enjoying a beautiful weather day! 
Becca
