Happy 4th Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway

Congrats to Bev, Jaime, Mary and Mary! Thanks to everyone who entered!

I can’t believe it! Today I’ve been blogging here for 4 years. For those of you who’ve not been around here since then, Bloom, Bake & Create came into being because of another website I blogged at called Heartwriting.

Heartwriting was all about writing and I even offered online classes. However, the more I blogged, the more I wanted to write about other topics besides just getting in touch with our feelings through words. My last online class, Monthly Write 2009, was bordering on scrapbooking as I was moving into that and art journals. I started this blog to write about gardening, baking, and creating. I realized I loved blogging about those topics and eventually closed the heartwriting site. I still believe writing is important, but no longer see it as my calling.

Over the four years this blog has evolved into more of a craft/art blog although I still like to blog from time-to-time about gardening and baking. What really pushed me into the transition was my two-year writing gig for The Evansville Courier & Press where I wrote a column about local artists and crafters. You can find those columns at the top under Courier Columns. The artists I met really inspired me to spend more time creating and that’s where I am now.

Anyway, enough about history! Since I’m celebrating I wanted to you help me celebrate by taking part in my giveaway. I am going to give away 4 prizes to 4 readers who comment on this blog post. And since I love ice dyeing, all four pieces are ice dyed. The first piece is one I dyed last winter. This is a fat quarter.

Giveaway #1

The next fat quarter is one of my original ice dyed fabric.

Giveaway #2The next two giveaways are a new project of mine, scarves made with silky bamboo and cotton jersey. They are so soft and lightweight with raw edges.
