It's My First Blog Birthday...

Today is Brynwood blog's FIRST Birthday! I started writing to you on March 15, 2009, and I have written a total of 326 posts! I never knew when I started, how much joy and how many new friendships this endeavor would bring my way.

The celebration is about to begin and I'm so excited! I've been waiting for you! This party is by invitation for my followers, but they can invite their friends, too. So if you're a guest who isn't a follower yet, you'll want to sign up right away. It's ok. There's still time! It's going to be a grand time!I've set the table with tea and cookies, but you'll also find among the party hats and refreshments, all kinds of goodies that I'll be sharing with some lucky followers when I draw names at the end of March.

Because it's March, and because Alice has visited Brynwood before, I couldn't think of a better theme than Alice in Wonderland. Many of my gifts feature Alice, The March Hare, The Dormouse and The Mad Hatter himself! So, the first thing I want you to do is grab your party hats. Hmmmm, should I wear this one?
or do you think this one is more "me"?
(I know...you're all gonna tell me how much
I look like my mum again, aren't you?)
Now, to show you the gifts I'll be sharing for this celebration...
My dear friend, Lenore, makes the most beautiful jewelry. I'm going to share one of her handcrafted crystal heart necklaces with you in Alice's favorite blue and white...just like her dress and pinafore! One lucky winner will receive this necklace from me.

With the exception of this necklace (and the b/w Alice charms I used for the bookmarks) all other prizes have been handcrafted by moi - Mrs. Brynwood Birthday Girl, myself!
THREE lucky followers will win one of Alice's Teacup Pincushions!
Each teacup pincushion is embellished with French silk ribbon roses and velvet leaves, with a tiny clock button on a creamy fabric. There is tea-dyed crocheted lace around the edge of each cup, and look! Under the edge of the cup...sitting on a tiny demitasse spoon is a little mouse. The dormouse is brown, and I could only find white mice. So, I painted them brown for the pincushions, but I had to put a mouse on Alice's Teacup Pincushion! After all, The Dormouse slept in a teacup at the Hatter's party!
I know how much y'all like to read, so I've made Alice in Wonderland velvet ribbon bookmarks, too. Each one is different with a different "Alice" charm on each end of the ribbon. SIX lucky followers will win one each!

It seems that my Brynwood Needle Keeps were a big hit last time I had them in a giveaway, so I've made FOUR Brynwood Needle Keeps with an Alice in Wonderland theme. I used Alice fabric outside and inside each one, and I added my signature acorn charm to the inside.
I'm even going to add a Queen of Hearts stickpin
inside each pin keep for each of the winners!
So, let's get this party started!

You can only win if you publicly follow Brynwood Needleworks.
After all, you've had to listen to me carry on throughout this first year.
There should be some special chance at compensation for you, right?
The Fine Print:
If you're already a Brynwood follower (or want to become a follower now):
• Leave a comment on this post only for one entry in the drawings. I'd love to know you're favorite thing(s) in the giveaway.
• Leave another comment (here only, too) if you post my giveaway on your blog - or put my celebration button on your sidebar.
That's it.

This drawing will close on March 31st at 9 pm ET.
I'll choose the winners using Random.org,
using the well-known Random Number Generator.
I will announce the winners on April 1st...
and I promise there won't be any April Fools!

You may use any photographs in this post for your blog -
and feel free to take the Celebration button, too for your sidebar.
Don't forget to link it back to this post!

If you don't have a blog, be sure to leave an email address or another way for me to reach you if you win. I'll draw another name from The Mad Hatter's hat if I don't know how to find you.

By my count, there will be a total of FOURTEEN sweet winners in this giveaway celebration. Good luck to all of you. I appreciate each and every one of you every day of my life. Oh, and please do take a cookie before you leave!

3/31/10 - 9:08 pm. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED! THE GIVEAWAY DRAWING IS NOW CLOSED.

Happy Blog Birthday! It is my blogs birthday this month also. To funny I just cut out some felt that I am making needle keeps with this weekend and am going to add one to my giveaway also. Although yours are so much prettier. Started making them for some friends that I am going on a quilt shop weekend with but decided it would be a great little something to add to the box of goodies I have been putting together. I will probably post it the first of next week after my get away. I am already a follower and my favorite gift you have is the pin keep and the bookmarks. Love the first hat on you!

The French Bear said...

Oh Donna, Happy Blog Birthday!!!! I think my year is up too, only I don't even have two hundred posts, you rock girlfriend!!!! I am loving everything, mostly the "Alice" needle case, how darling!!!

Happy Birthday Brynwood and Donna!. My, you've been as a bee. It doesn't seem like a year has gone by so fast. You started a month earlier than I. REB will be one April 19, so I am celebrating a couple of milestones this week.

Happy Blogging Birthday Donna...I am a follower and I am going to try and put your button on my side bar (I am not very good at mastering some things on blogs even though I have been bloggine for a long time)
Of course I am sure that you know what my favorite item is in your give away...It is the pin cushion and would look awesome next to the Bunny Pin Cushion I got from you so that is what I am crossing my fingers for.
All of your items are wonderful ...but if I had to choose what I won you know what it would be. I am a follower on your blog and do have you on my blog roll.
I have only won something once in a give away but am hoping to make it twice :)
Pop over to my blog (if you haven't yet) and enter my blog giveaway..I just added another prize and will be adding more for each 5 entries :)

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

My goodness Donna are u giving away Handsome too...lol
So many pretty things can't wait to see who the lucky winners are. I forgot to see when the giveaway ends.
Anyway not sure what my favorite is too hard to choose...Love the hats and yes I could use one today but sure would hate to as pretty as they are...I had to take a drink break so came by here to say hello...How strange I found you on my site when I took this break because I was thinking about Donna while I was mowing..lol Life is funny isn't it.
Girl I will be lucky to do 100 post in a years time..you are just something else no wonder I was thinking about you.
Love
Maggie

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

A huge congratulations on your first blog birthday and all of the wonderful posts. I must say how darling you look in those hats! Love both of the photos... especially the second.

Everything you've chosen for gifts is wonderful, and I love the Needle Keeps an awful lot. The fabric is grand, and the lil pin and acorn charm add just the right touch to the Needle Keeps.

Have fun celebrating and thank you for the invitation. It's such a pleasure following.

What a beautiful table 'dahling', and the cookie was devine. Thanks so much for the invitation to tea with you and Alice, it was gorgeous. I love you in the first hat, it's so sweet, and the pincushion cups are quite pretty. I'll bet Alice wishes she could take everything home with her, but alas, she can't. And you're sweet to have a birthday party and give gifts to your guests! What a neat opportunity. Glad to be one of your followers and hopefully winner!

Happy blog Birthday,
As for the hat, HUMMMMMM In roses you look elegant, in feathers, well lets say the imp in you seems to shine through. I like the fun impish look. As for my favorite things, grand babies, puppies, my garden and my sewing machines.

Donna,
How did I not see this??? You know I enter every give-away you have...even tho I never win...hint.hint.hint. I guess I've no chance with this one either since stitches with Cindy already left her address for prizes. LOL :) Oh throw me in the hat anyway, my favorite things are the needle keepers & pin cushions, only because I have little ones so I never read anything other than blogs & mags, & don't dress up! Lisa
PS. Already a follower, on my sidebar as of noW!

Donna,
"I'm late, I'm late for a VERY important date!" What a lovely blog! And what a lovely giveaway!

Oh shoot, I can just see the animals in the sidebars,,and I'm MUSH! I have 4 in my little house and it is simply bursting at the seams or I'd have more! I donate more to animal welfare than to human organizations,,,,they just love us all and accept us unconditionally!

That said, your BLOG and your giveaway are lovely.

If I had my choice, I'd love either a pin cushion,,,too cute, or a needle keeper! Both are lovely!

Thank you for sharing your creations and your blog! I'm following and will be back! I'll post albeit late, on my sidebar!

Hugs,
Shell-Washington State
Stop by my little blog when you have a breather and say hi!

Happy Blog Birthday! What a generous giveaway! Goodness! can I have some of the vitamins you take? LOL I thought I entered, must have gotten inturrupted with some real life thingy...no matter- I made it! I love the needle keep I got before, and would love another to play with. I have been drowning in paint and curtians lately. I have some fabric I think you might enjoy...it has sweet acorns on it. Happy Easter!

Happy One Year Blogiversary Donna! Your creations are absolutely fabulous & congrats on finishing that beautiful sweater. You'd asked for our favorite, but it's difficult to choose, altho I'm rather partial to the adorable doormouse pincushion or maybe the needle keep. Decisions... Thank you for the tutorials you've shared. Again, Happy anniversary! Dianne in UT
