It’s been a week of Birthday’s here, 2 days ago my little boy turned 3 and today my Blog is having it’s 5th Birthday, I am so pleased and think that this is quite an achievement.
When I first posted back on 6th Jan 2007 my blog was for such different reasons, I had not long been making Jewellery and Selling it and it was recommended to me on a forum a blog was a great way for free advertisement and to share my pieces.
Over the years I have had dry spells, 2009 became a low blogging point for me as I was dealing with Grayson’s disabilities and just trying to keep us all going, if I had half of the on line friends I share now I would have blogged a great deal more at those points to share how I was feeling with what was happening to my little boy and how our life would never be the same again.
I have this past year learnt to love my blog again, I have learnt its a place where no matter what I can be honest about my feelings, where I can share the ups and lows of being a parent, as well as all this I have been lucky enough to go to a Fisher Price sponsored event and share our views on some great products, for this we feel very fortunate.
Most importantly I am so thankful for the amazing community and friends I have met in 2011, I feel I can honestly say some of my closest friends are my on line ones and their support has been essential to my everyday life.
So to celebrate this Big Birthday I am giving away 2 prizes (and if I get a obscene amount of comments we may have to up that), the 1st is a One of a Kind Necklace made by my fair hands, its a lovely simple piece but uses the most stunning Swarovski Cross Pendant and Crystals.

My 2nd prize has been gifted by the very kind Fisher Price, it’s a gift for the little ones, cause lets be honest my blog features them a great deal.
|A Brand New in The Box Blue Seahorse is Up for Grabs|
Its a brand new Blue Seahorse, both my bubba’s have seahorses that they go to bed with, I would not be without them, the belly glows and plays lovely music for 5 minutes and helps them drift of to sleep.
So how to win ?
