I started this blog one year ago today. (April 1st - foolish, no?!).
I just went back to read my first post, in order to remember why I started this blog. And, unbelievably, I discovered that my core aims for blogging have indeed been the ones I have focussed on! These were:
1. To live more creatively
2. To live more sustainably
3. To create more sustainably.
Now the ways in which I have been exploring, and fulfilling, these aims during the past year are many and varied, and I will save for further posts a more detailed round-up of my growth (or not) as a crafter and a sustainable homemaker.
The main point of this post is to say thank you! I did not at all expect to have so many readers join me on this blog, nor did I at all expect the astounding level of interaction, community, and real life friendship that has come from blogging.
So here's a little thank you giveaway for you. It's open to readers of this blog from anywhere.
The main prize will be this coffee-sack market bag, which I had great fun making last week:
This bag will come to you with some goodies included, but these goodies will be tailored to the winner and will depend on who you are, what you like and where you live.
There will be two other prizes as well, but you'll just have to wait in suspense to see what those are!!
To enter, leave a comment, and answer me this: why do you think I called my blog 'clutterpunk'? Do I like clutter or hate it? Am I a punk? Do you care? This post might give you some clues. Don't worry, I will not choose the winner on the basis of accuracy...most likely I will employ random.org. But I DO want something interesting to read in the comments!
Anyway, thanks again... without you guys, the journey so far would've been a whole lot less satisfying.
