A Blogiversary and a Give Away!

I've been thinking lately, that with my first blogging anniversary just around the corner, it's time for a Blog give away :) I haven't actually decided what it will be yet, but it will be a bear made by me. So here's the deal; if you want to be included in the draw. If you aren't already one, register as a follower and leave a comment. If you mention the give away and add a link on your blog you will be entitled to 2 extra chances in the draw. When the time comes, ( February 13th at 9pm AEST) I'll use a highly scientific method to choose the winner (ie;names in a hat)
In the meantime I'll put my skates on and make the bear so that it's ready to post out to the lucky winner. I will also take a photo to show you all what's up for grabs :) Good Luck and many thanks to you all for your support during the year it's been a blast!

  10. I don't have a blog, so can't post a link back )-: Congrats on the anniversary! What a great idea to get more people to have a look. I have just joined one of the forums you are on the last few weeks, thought Id take a peek, and I LOVE your bears! They are just so sweet, cuddly and full of character (-:

    I would LOVE to win one, but since I NEVER win anything I will start following your blog and maybe one day I can afford one of my very own (-:
