Thick Threads turned One!

I am happy to officially say that Thick Threads has turned One.  On this day last year was my first blog post ever! I wasn't sure if it was going to go anywhere, or if anyone was going to read it, I just knew I wanted to keep doing it.  I can't even believe it's been a  year already! The time flew by so fast.  I learned a lot since my last post thanks to the whole blogger community.  I have learned and was inspired by so many other great blogs, thanks to each and every single one of you :)

I want to give the most thanks to all of my awesome followers and readers! You all made my blog what it is a year later.  Not a whole lot, but deffinitely a whole lot more than what it was when I barely started.  Thank you for your support!

I would love to make it up to you somehow.  I have no idea how.  I am pretty broke. but maybe there is a giveaway in the making?  I am open to any suggestions on this topic because I really want to give back to you and I want it to be something that will make you as happy as you've made me being my reader and supporter and all that nice stuff.  Please leave your suggestions in the comments. Until then. I will try and scrounge up some more money for a self sponsored give away :)

I recieved an amazing gift today from my friend Lorena.  She has been supportive of my blog since day one and today she brought this amazing D.I.Y poster.  It totally suprised me.   I am so grateful and absolutely love it!

These are a close up of some of the little notes she added on the poster

It's such a great present and I am so happy and grateful to her. Thank you so much Lorena :)  I am grateful that there are people out there who support the blog.  It means the world to me!

Thank you all for your support so far!!

Sending you all virtual celebration cupcakes! :)

Hi, I saw your request for giveaway suggestions on IFB - I love your blog!

I'm a new blogger and certainly no expert, but what has worked for me is to approach new crafting bloggers, students and local businesses whose (for example) clothes and jewellery you like and suggest you collaborate. You can
feature their website/etsy shop/blog in exchange for a piece of jewellery or clothing for a giveaway - see how I did that here on my blog... I currently have a giveaway and I have more planned, and they haven't cost me a penny! Not Dressed As Lamb BRACELET GIVEAWAY

I hope this helps, good luck! Catherine x
