And what a year it’s been…
Not only do I celebrate another year of blogging, but I’ve also had lots of great things happen to me in my personal life.
The biggest of them all – the arrival of my long awaited baby boy.
After years of trying me and my long term boyfriend (who not long ago also became my fiance) finally found out we where expecting.
I kept sewing and pushing myself for bigger projects up until the point of exhaustion, but the day we found out about the pregnancy, was the day I quit sewing (at least for a while). I realized it was all to much, and I needed a break.
About two months pregnant, wearing the last ensemble I made during 2015.
And a break I had.
From Sewing, blogging and even reading costume related posts and articles on my phone.
9 months pregnant, and almost ready to get back to sewing and blogging.
Now, almost a year later I slowly getting back to the urge to create and work with my hands.
I’m also back to blogging, all though not at all as frequently as before.
Now I only sew when I feel like it (and can get the time from my baby), and blog when I have something to share.
The strangest thing though, is that while on hiatus my Facebook page exploded in followers, going from like 200 the first year to another 400 these last couple of months. Getting the joke started about who I should just keep from posting at all…
… Which leads me to next good thing:
All my new followers 🙂
Whether here on the blog, Facebook (www.facebook.com/blog.fashionthroughhistory) or Instagram (www.instagram.com/fashionthroughhistory)
I’m so happy that you choose to read and take part in my costuming endevour.
Don’t be shy, I love comments and interactions, and tries to answer every question to the best of my ability.
By the time I’m writing this I got
270 followers on the blog
600 Followers on Facebook
and 480 followers on Instagram
I think that’s worth celebrating!
And what better way of celebrating all my new followers then with a giveaway to one of you
I recently acquired another one of my favorite wooden fan – And now I will gift it to one of you.
(This picture is from the wide world web, but I do have a very similar one that I will send one of you totally free of charge)
If you want to be in the running, you need to:
- Follow the blog (if you don’t already)
- Write a comment on this post – say “Hey”,tell me your favorite movie or what ever you want – I just need the comment to get you in the running. But I don’t object to some nice buttering up;-)
You all have until noon September 7 (Swedish time) to post your comments.
I will then randomly pull one person from my hat, announce it on the blog and send the fan to you. (I will need to contact you for your posting adress and information.)
Lots of love
