Thank You...and a six month blogversary give away

I'm blown away...really I am.  When I started this blog 6 months ago (April 2nd), I never imagined to be where I am right now.  I didn't start this blog to become rich or famous.  I started this blog just to prove to myself that I could and I did.
I've learned a lot in 6 months.  I've learned:

-that blogging is hard work, 
-how to use the little tulip button on my camera (zoom in),
-how to prioritize my time better,
-how to take better pictures,
-how to tinker with HTML code,
-that a sewing needle can go through a finger,
-that my kids know more about computers than me,
-to trust my instincts, 
-to stay true to myself,
-not to worry about what others say,
-how to stumble, tweet and follow,
-that I don't need to be checking my inbox every 5 minutes,
-how awesome it feels to be recognized,
-that people out there follow me because of what I have to say, 
-that I don't have to post everything I make,
-that I need my own craft room (hint, hint to my hubby), and
-that I don't need fancy gadgets to cut circles or make stencils.

With all this said, I just want to thank you for continuing to read this blog, for commenting on my never ending t-shirt redos, and for parting with me.  As I write this post, there are 101 followers and that is really neat. So, let's have a give away in honor of YOU.  

Remember the out of place picture at the beginning of this post?  Well, I made that with this post in mind.  One lucky reader/follower  will win that silk flower pin. All you have to do is leave a comment.  
(Follow if you want, but I will never make you follow my blog...I want you to follow because you want to.)

The random winner will be chosen using Random.org.  Closing date is Thursday, October 6th. Winner will be announced on Friday, October 7th right before It's A Rockin' Party #4.

Thanks again and good luck...

Carmen

Thank you for sharing your heart and soul with us! The pin is lovely, and yes, I would love to win it, but I comment because I want to, not just to win something.

I hope hubby reads your blog and gets you that craft room. (another hint, hint, hint) Congratulations on your 6 months from another relatively new blogger. That pin is pretty. Thanks for the chance to win.

Pretty pin! I think my husband would build me a craft room if he could. I don't think he likes my craft hoard lying around. When we moved into our house 6 years ago I promised myself to keep the front living room clean in case of surprise visitors. Hmmmm...that ended when I started scrapping last year.

The pin is beautiful. Just the other day I saw a friend wearing one similar to this in her hair and I fell in love. I would love to make one sometime and will totally use your tutorial to attempt it. In the mean time though I would LOVE to win the one you already made. The colors you used are perfect!

I've made the ice cream cake and it was a hit! I really, REALLY enjoy your food blogs, but also like the non-food related items. You are so creative and talented. Your a full time mom, wife and blogger HOW DO YOU DO IT?! Congratulations on your 6 month anniversary and best wishes for many more to come!
