Prior to Crafts, Cavies and Contras I had a simple web site. It was cumbersome to update; I was constantly reworking the pages. Rob pointed out my writing style and projects were more appropriate for a blog than on a static site. He was right - I really enjoy blogging. By the end of 2011 I ported my old content here then deleted my old web page.
Five years. Wow. Five different guinea pigs, two different dwellings, lots of sewing and Sculpey, a bunch of new recipes and nearly 700 posts. (Plus a ton of dancing that I rarely write about.) To celebrate my fifth blogiversary, I'm giving away a large mug rug (or a mini table-topper?), a Pet Piggies on Parade 2016 calendar and a small bag of my almond buttercrunch. (Get it? - crafts, cavies and cooking!)
I know I have a small readership, but come celebrate with me. To enter the giveaway: leave a comment (if you're a no-reply blogger, please include your email address in the comment). If you can't comment (I occasionally have someone tell me the comments don't work), email me (address is on my About Me tab). I will pick a winner at random from the comments/emails.
