Tiny Grey Cat is 1! Blogiversary and a Giveaway


Happy Birthday to me! Well, to my blog actually, because Tiny Grey Cat is one year old! Hooray! 

A huge thank you to each of you who takes the time to read my ramblings and have been with me this past year, through good times and bad, whether a longtime reader or a new visitor. I appreciate every single one of you and have made some lovely blog friends in the past twelve months.

I don't feel like a newbie blogger any more, but I have so much to learn still. Over the next year I really want to focus on developing the blog's appearance and learning a bit about coding and such, to get Tiny Grey Cat looking more slick. (FYI, I am going to need help with this!)

This year has been a turbulent and emotional one for me, as I continue my recovery from breast cancer and try to get my life back on track, whilst dealing with the aftermath and ongoing side effects of such a traumatic event. The blog is an outlet where I can be myself and share things that I love, rediscover passions and bring happiness back to my life, without the label of 'cancer patient'.

I love interacting with you. Your comments make me smile and give me a boost on tough days. We've had some good laughs and some tender moments - thank you.

As a way to give something back to my lovely readers, I've gathered a few bits and bobs together for my first ever giveaway. I don't have cash to flash, to it's just a few cutesy things I could afford, but I hope you like them. The winner will receive:









Kitty make-up bag/pencil case
Anchor bookmark
Russian doll sticky notes
Rose print notebook
Sea shell ice lolly moulds (set of four - nightmare to photograph!)
Two rolls of washi/craft tape 


To be in with a chance of winning the goodies, all you have to do is:

  • Leave a comment below, saying what your favourite thing about Tiny Grey Cat is, and what you'd like to see more of.

You can earn additional entries by:
  • Following Tiny Grey Cat on Bloglovin (must be following the blog, not my profile) (1 entry)
  • Liking Tiny Grey Cat on Facebook (1 entry)
  • Following Tiny Grey Cat on Twitter and tweeting about the giveaway, using hashtag #tinygreycat (1 entry)

You MUST comment below saying which of the additional entries you make, so I can check them. I cannot keep checking multiple platforms for new entries, so if you don't tell me here, they likely won't be counted. Only one entry per method will be counted. Accounts used solely for giveaways will be disqualified.

The giveaway is open worldwide and ends on September 30th. (I will obtain proof of posting, but can accept no responsibility for items lost in transit)


Good luck, kittens! And here's to the next year as blog buddies <3

xx

THE GIVEAWAY WINNER IS LISA, FROM A STAR FELL ON HER. Yay, congratulations!
(All entries were numbered, then the winner was picked using a random number generator, on random.org)
