Happy First Birthday! Kindred Crafters Turns One

It's our very first blog birthday today! I wish I could let loose on a cake like I did on my real first birthday, but I guess once in a lifetime is enough for an activity like that.

Anyhoo, Donna and I really appreciate you dropping by to check out what we've been up to in our craft spaces. We are having so much fun sharing our projects and experiences. We love hearing from you through comments and email. We love getting to know the people behind the hyperlinks!
We've both decided to send a token of our appreciation out into the blogisphere. That means two of you lovely, loyal readers will be getting a special parcel in your box really soon!


I'll be sending out Little Boy Blue:

And Donna will be sending out a treasure trove of things: some fabric, a quilter's little helper w'nder thimble (pictured below), a "Born to Quilt" bumper sticker she picked up when last at one of her local fabric shops, a lovely Clover seam ripper, and your choice of pattern from The Sometimes Crafter's etsy shop. Her patterns are lovely, and so is she! (Christina, if you win, you'll get something else fab in place!!) ( sorry for the lack of a photo of the entire package, but i can't get my stuff together and want to get this post up - Donna)

We're going on the honor system and trusting that only people who regularly drop in will comment to be entered in the giveaway. If you've landed here for the first time, we're so very happy to have you! Please make yourself right at home here at Kindred Crafters and come back again soon.
Edited to add: winners will be announced this Wednesday, January 20th.
- Donna & Sara

Happy First Birthday...how exciting. I think you should celebrate by a piece of cake or something fun. My DH says people ought to get rewards for jobs well done so here's to you gals for a great job!! (insert glasses clinking here lol)
I am a regular but haven't been for too long (few months maybe) so you can decide if I count or not in your draw.
Thanks so much for all of your wonderful content!
