Create & Babble is two years old! I know, I can hardly believe it myself. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy writing this blog. Truly. I absolutely love this!
Even though it sometimes feels like I am burning a candle at both ends since I also have a full-time job, I wouldn’t write this blog if I didn’t feel so passionately about it. Hopefully, this will be my full-time job within the next year – that’s the goal anyway ; )
It’s hard to believe how this little blog has grown and reached so many people in the last two years. And I do believe that I have the nicest readers in all of blogland!
For those of you who have been here since the beginning, I thank you so sincerely for sticking with me. And to all of my new readers, I welcome you and thank you too for reading and sharing. It means the world to me.
To help me celebrate, Silhouette America is giving away a Portrait® to one of my lucky readers. How appropriate that the maker of my all-time favorite crafting tool is sponsoring this giveaway!
K Frydendall says
Congrats! A portrait would be awesome!!
Patricia Vickers says
I would gift the portrait to my granddaughter who loves to craft.

I would definitely keep it for myself! I’ve been bitten by the crafting bug and have been going back and forth about buying one. I got my daughter one for Christmas last year and she loves it! She got married a month ago and I’m afraid that’s where all of my funds went too, lol. And the rest will go towards Christmas, so this would be great! Something for myself?!? That almost never happens!!!

Though I would love to have a Silhouette in my craft room, I would probably gift this to my daughter. She has 3 children and a myriad of science projects every year. This would definitely help with that, and to use with the kids crafts as well!

I would use this for so many things! I would probably use it for scrapbooking the most!

I think the first project would be Christmas cards. I think that would be fun.
