It's a Blogaversary!


The very first CurlyPops Banner

It's been two whole gigantic years since I began my day to day bloggy blabber...... and wow, how things have changed!



The first ever photo on CurlyPops Blog

What began as a bit of fun on the computer has completely changed everything in my life - lots of new friends, new work, new creative dreams, new motivation, new life.

When I first sat down in front of the screen and signed up, and started blogging in secret (yep - I didn't tell anyone at all), I could never have dreamed that it would have such a positive effect on my life.

So to celebrate my 2nd bloggaversary, I'm having a giveaway.

After chatting to Nikki and Cathy lastnight, I'm going to totally pinch Cathy's idea, and custom make something to suit the blogger who wins...... it's a bit like a lucky dip - you just never know what it could be!

Anyhow - you've gotta be in it to win it - so just leave me a comment - simple as that.

Congratulations! I guess i must have been reading you from very early on too! I have always enjoyed reading of your adventures in Craft Land. It is a small world - I was mentioning to a friend recently how much I need a new handbag, and (she knows I like handmade!) she said, I should give you Paul's(her husband) cousin's details - she makes stuff & has a website & everything! She sent me a link & what should pop up? Curlypops! She was pleased to know that I had been reading your blog for ages too! (ps. - I do love your bags, but I was given a voucher to buy one elsewhere! Maybe next time!) Siobhan
