Blogaversary (a month late)!

For some reason I wrote on my kitchen calendar that today (May 19) was my blogaversary . In fact, it was last month. On the 19th.

But I never did post about it then. Oh dear. So deciding it was better a month later than never, I now announce another Eco-bag Giveaway because this blog is TWO! I wonder if the terrible twos will become evident. Hmmmm.

*wooosh to blow out candles*

The only catch is - I haven't made the bags yet! Heh heh :-) I think I'll commit to making 4 bags, and if I feel in the groove I shall make more.

This month, I've enjoyed reading The Pillow Book of Sei Shonogon. It's a Japanese classic written by a lady in waiting somewhere between 1001-1010. She liked to write lists.

So in order to enter the giveaway I would like you to write a list (short or long) on one of these topics.

You can do this in a comment or on your blog.

If you do post it on your blog, please let me know in a comment.

  • Splendid Things
  • Things that make one's heart beat faster
  • Things that should be large
  • Awkward things
I hope that isn't too hard! I think they could be interesting prompts for a scrapbooking LO.

Note: I will post to overseas in this giveaway.
note 2: As the bags are not yet made, I cannot say when they will be posted. So I'm not promising quick service here ;-) Like the ad says, it might not happen immediately but it will happen.

Edited to add: I'll close off the competition on Sunday 25th at midnight NZ time.


  1. An interesting list there!! Will have to put my thinking cap on for that one ... probably won't happen today though. :-} Boys still sleeping - M been up for an hour! And we are off to the see the elephants this afternoon. :-)

  2. Happy blogaversary for last month.
    They sound like cool things to make a list about too. I might just do one or two of those but don't put me in the draw cos I already have one of your awesome baggies - not that I wouldn't love another one but I'm not being greedy lol.

  3. Things that make one's heart beat faster. (Lots of things).
    - My husbands kind words
    - My kids saying "I love you Mum" (the sweetest words you'll ever hear).
    (basically my family)
    And then of course there is walking into a scrapbooking shop (looking over your shoulder to make sure DH is still in the corner with the kids and not seeing your ever growing stash LOL).
    I know there is many more but thats the ones that come off the top of my head..
