Life in Pieces 5 Year Blogiversary

After 5 years and 1173 posts, I'm still blogging.  Over those 5 years, I've sometimes posted every day and sometimes not at all for weeks at a time. Life gets busy, blogging becomes a chore, but eventually I find my way back.  It's hard to stay away.  When I started the blog 5 years ago, I had no idea of the all the wonderful people I would meet on line.   You all inspire me, motivate me, engage me, uplift me, share with me, and laugh with me.   So to say thanks for all the fun, I have a give away.  A fat quarter packet from RJR Fabrics called Chalk Line.  




So just leave a comment and next Saturday the 12th, I'll select a winner. If you are a no reply blogger be sure to include your email address in your comment.  

In looking back, I found some of my old headers.  Here's a few of my favorites.  


Winter 2010 Header 

Summer 2011 Header


Spring 2012 Header


July 2013 Header

September 2014 Header


Thanks for a fun five years!

Love your choice for a giveaway, so pick me! Hearty congratulations on your stick-to-it attitude.

I think changing your headers is a fun way to evolve. I've done a couple already in a year, but doubt it will be the last. It says a lot about who we are, our style, and our life at the current stage. I appreciate that you even changed your font each time. It's like freshening things up for the eye.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm so glad you shared your anniversary with us Kate. I'm in the life is busy and not very motivated to sew stage. By the time I get home from work, sewing seems like a chore, thus nothing to really blog about. LOL!!! Hopefully with the start of school under my belt and a three day weekend ahead my sewing mojo will be rejuvinated!! Thanks for the chance to win such yummy fabric! V:)

Congratulations on five years! It seems longer - I feel like I've "known" you the whole time I lived in Oklahoma, and that was a good long time ago! I still like the daisy header the best!
