What a fabulous party

Wasn't the Grow your blog party heaps of fun?  Thanks so much to Vicki at 2 bags full for hosting such a great event.  I've had such a great time getting to know new blogs and speaking to new people all over the world.  I want to say a big thank you to everyone (old and new visitors) who comes by and takes time to visit my little corner of blogland.  Before the party I had 35 followers and I now have 60, wow it's a little overwhelming really.  

I still haven't quite decided what the prize is for my drawer but I will figure it out soon, and I have drawn a winner.  I used random number generator and that picked number 36 which is Hueisei of Love it Sew it 

Even though the party is over I'm still feeling in a party mood, and I found the perfect way to ward of the post party blues when I visited Jessica's blog

I'm joining in this pay it forward

Here are the details:
The first 5 people to comment and leave their email and blog address will receive from me, sometime in 2013, a small gift handmade by me....a surprise in the mail! In this age of digital everything, who doesn't love actual fun mail?

There will be no warning, but once I know that the recipient has indeed received the surprise, I will blog about the gift I sent and count down the five surprises with all my blog readers!

The Catch:
Those 5 people must make the same offer on their blog!
If you're interested in participating, making some new friends in blog land, and sharing your creative talents, then please leave me a comment.  I will be contacting the first 5 people who comment to get your mailing address so I will be ready to send your surprise in the coming months!
I look forward to hearing from you!
Happy Creating!

Hi there! I've enjoyed getting to know you through the GYB party. Very fun idea. If you don't mind an overseas participant I'll sign up! Sometimes shipping can be ridiculous? Just let me know - I won't be offended if you decide not to! I wanted to say too that I love your patchwork scenes and your photos are so wonderful! I'll send you an e-mail with my e-mail if you want. Here is my blog -
