 YAY!! Today is my 2 year blogosphere birthday.  

I can't believe I have made it this far. So much has happened in the past two years and I have met so many wonderful people through this blog. Opportunities I have been given that I wouldn't have otherwise. To celebrate I am having a little giveaway for all of my wonderful readers. 

Up for grabs will be a copy of The Suitcase Series, Volume One - Camilla Engman. I love this book, it is full of wonderful treasures. I know because I have a copy all for myself too! 

Also included in this birthday giveaway will be one of my Profile Peeps brooches and some other crafty treats.

To enter leave a comment below and tell me what you would like to see more of on this blog. You have until next Tuesday 31 August to enter. The winner will be announced the following day. 
Hmm I wonder if this means I can eat cake today...
