>2 years missed and gone in a Flash



I kinda have an excuse but I am a terrible blogger, I was sitting here this morning wondering, I am sure I started my beautiful blog in January, so I take a look back and there it hits me, I am over 2 months late for my blog-anniversary, awful, I feel a pang, my blog has become so neglected, not only due to my wonderful little boy, I was terrible at blogging all of last year and I hate this, my blog over the past 2 years has done so much for me, it has given me an outlet for my crafting, chatting and general family issues, its shown people my creations and even made me a little money but most importantly it has allowed me to meet you, yes you, the wonderful amazing creative and darn right beautiful friends and for that I am hugely THANKFUL.

So I apologise to my dear Innocent Charms Chats I am sorry I have not been so good to you as you have been to me and to mark this great occasion be it 2 months late I am hosting a giveaway, a present from me and ICC to one of you.

This is a summery necklace and as Summer is on its way I thought that it would bring some nice weather, the focals are some of my own Polymer Clay work so truly one of a kind.

So how to enter, just leave a comment, only condition it must have a link to a blog that inspires you.

So love to all and hope you are having a nice weekend.

    >Hi Kara,
    i was just wondering if my package has made it to you yet?

    >Hi Lara,
    i just found your blog tonight for the first time as I was scouring for some beading inspiration. I love the necklace, especially the polymer clay aspect – I tried my hand at this briefly last year and got a bit disheartened as my pieces were nowhere near as nice as those I saw on various blogs – and when one did work out gorgeous I wrecked it by putting on a varnish that somehow stayed sticky. Go figure.
    Anyway – the blog that inspires me is thecroneatwitsend.com Crone inspires me not only in her lifestyle but also her readiness to learn new things. She is forever making the most beautiful things for her family and friends, and shares her successes and hiccups along the way.
    Always a good read – I’m sure you’ll enjoy it if you haven;t heard of her before.
    Nat 🙂

    A blog I find inspirational is kellyskorner.blogspot.com
    She is such a great Christian role model and used the power of prayer when her baby was air lifted to NICU right after she was born.. it’s one of my favs to read!
