Happy Blogoversary to me.

I started this blog in 2010 when I was enrolled in the Certificate of Library (Information services). It's called something else now. But at the time we were looking at our Information Literacy which, of course now days, includes social media.

I took a while to decide upon a topic for my blog. I had started a few Tumblr blogs and the one I enjoyed the most was called Books, Crafts & Pretty Things. So the name just stuck and I went with it. I was able to use my blog to get credit for some work assignments and it has helped me a lot to network with amazing people.

The first post I ever did was called "Best Ever Muffin Recipe".
My most popular posts have been about making crafts from books, like this one here.

Friday 29th September 2017 marked my 7 year blogoversay, and I am giving away two headbands, which can be used as planner bands (as shown below).

I crocheted all the flowers and used vintage buttons to attach them to pre-made bands I bought from Ebay.

I hope you enjoy them. This competition is open Internationally and closes on 15th October 2017 at midnight (Perth, Australia). 

Just tell me which colour you would like to win. This will count as your entry. That's it. There will be two winners chosen by random generator. They will each receive one headband of their choice from those pictured. I will cover postage.
