5 Today – How Time Flies

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.

Please excuse the poor picture quality

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.
