Hello! Welcome to the First Anniversary of Five On Friday!!!!!!
I am so very excited!!! It has been 12 months since I started the Five On Friday weekly link up party!!!
Thank you ALL for making this such a great success, more people than ever are taking part in the link up, commenting, visiting posts and doing all the fun things that a link up is all about. Which is the point of the whole thing really isn't it.
Five On Friday originally started with just little me writing the occasional post, on a Friday, containing five things. Then I noticed a few other people posting similar posts so I asked if anyone else would like to make it more official and join in. I was overwhelmed with the response and we soon started little groups of people posting on a Friday and sharing their five things.
That was all great, but more people asked if they could join in, and then a few more and it got too big so I just opened it up to everyone and here we are a year later after starting the link up and it is going so well.
I really am so grateful to you all, more than you will ever know I suspect and more than I can explain to you. This would truly be nothing without YOU!!!
THANK YOU too just for being there all year round, every day, Friday or not as well. You really do mean so much to me, the fact that you stop by, your kindness, your own wonderful posts, everything. I would be nothing without you. At the risk of going all mushy you are the wind beneath my wings and my encouragement to keep blogging.
I am sorry for my first post yesterday, I hope that it hasn't sent you all running for the hills. Please don't leave, and please don't do anything about your pins. I will fix something up next week so that you can pin, but not the things I don't want you to, after all the onus is on me, not you. Don't delete anything that you have already pinned!!!
Keep being wonderful, I love you all!!!
By way of sharing some thanks I am going to give away two of my crochet heart garlands to YOU!
One will be for the people who link up a post this week. In order to give you lots of time to take part this week I will leave the link up open until 7pm UK time on Thursday 25th February - all week effectively. Simply by leaving your link to your Five On Friday post - that must link back to this post also - you will be taking part. You don't need to do anything else.
The other will be for the people who go and comment on others posts. Simply go and visit at least three of the other posts and leave a comment on those posts. Then come back and leave me a comment telling me that you have commented and would like to take part in the giveaway. To be fair, I will check that you have commented, but you have all week to do it.
Both draws will close at 7pm UK time on Thursday 25th February 2016. I will then draw the winners and tell you who they are in next weeks Five On Friday post. If you do not claim your garland by e-mailing me within 1 week I will draw again. Open to all participants around the world. You can take part in both draws.
Your garland will be slightly different from the one pictured, the yarn is a slightly darker shade of pink, but will include five hearts. I may need a couple of days to get them out to you as I haven't actually made them yet which is why the photo is of a different garland!
THANK YOU all again so very much. The success of this venture is down to you as much as me, we are nothing without each other! I appreciate and love you all!!!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Thank you - as always! - for joining in and for going to read others posts.
