Blog anniversary in two weeks time; -great giveaway ahead


It occurred to me this morning that my blog anniversary is in two weeks time. December 10th 2008 was my very first post to Elins kreative side and I can't believe it has one been one year.
Those of you that are regular readers or friends know that I do tend to "over do" things. So I have decided since my blog-birthday is just around the corner, I will have a big extravaganza anniversary party for the next two weeks and I offer 3 different prizes!

December 10th is also the date for the Nobel Peace Prize award ceremony. The Nobel Peace Prize has been called "the world's most prestigious prize". Alfred Nobel died on the December 10th in 1895, and it has been an established tradition ever since 1901 for the Peace Prize to be presented on that date at a solemn award ceremony. The Peace Prize award ceremony takes place in the Oslo City Hall, in the presence of representatives of the Royal Family, the Government, the Storting, and about 1000 other guests. Banquets in honour of the Laureates are held the same evening at the Grand Hotel, outside which there is a torchlight procession in honour of the Laureate. Last year my youngest daughter and I went to Oslo to participate in this torchlight procession, see blogpost here!

I so appreciate all of you who stop by and read my page and leave such nice comments too! I keep seeing that little counter tick away those numbers and it amazes me that people from all over the world really read my blog! THANK YOU to all who take the time to follow me and my blog and I hope I can reach many more besides through this next year of blogging too!

Here are the details and rules for my giveaway;

  • If you leave a comment today and leave a comment everyday for the following 13 days (total 14) - I will put your name into the drawing 14 times.


  • If you leave one comment on one post this week - then you get your name added once for the drawing. Or if you visit and comment twice - then you get your name in twice, and so on.


  • If you post about my blog anniversary and giveaway on your blog, then I will enter your name one extra time (but please email me so I know you've mentioned the giveaway on your blog). 

Get it? Start spread the news about the giveaway

And 3 of you will be winners because like I said I have 3 prizes.

(Warning - you can't comment the day after a post and have it count! I will be checking the times/dates).

The first name I pick will get their choice of the 3 prizes and on down. So the third name I draw will get the last available prize.
I hope this isn't too confusing or complicated. Well, that's the way I do things I guess.
The first week I will post about my prizes; one of the time. I think it will be great fun.

Good Luck! I hope we all have two happy weeks ahead. And I hope you'll join me here each day to see the giveaway- prize on display and make comments to me.

Så generøs du er, jeg vil selvsagt prøve lykken og se om jeg kan vinne en av premiene. Gleder meg til å følge med deg disse to ukene og se hva du har tenkt å gi bort.

The more I look at the Singer sewing machine on your picture the more I fall in love with the whole scenery. I have spend the weekend sewing small bags ready for sweets for my grandchildren as before christmas gifts.
