Five Year Blogiversary – Giveaway
Holy guacamoles my darling Glitteratis! Today marks my five-year blogiversary. Colour me slayed like a carbon-dated fossil. Five years, where did that time go? Well, a few extra grey weaves dyed, a repeat prescription of Botox injections self-administered, and tens of thousands of dollars worth of quilting supplies: that’s where. If someone would have told me what sort of rabbit hole I was falling down five years ago, well, I would have brought an extra suitcase full of vodka. Geez people, head’s up next time!
Let’s see if we can recap some of this. That’s 680 published blog posts. That’s a blog post every 2.68 days–so that’s where all my free time goes. My initial thought was to link to my top five blog posts. And then I laughed, and LOLed, and let the fans blow my hair back like in an 80s hair band music video. You see, I don’t have just five blog posts that tell the story of Molli B. Sparkles. There are at the very least thirty-five! For those new to my brand of revelry, this provides a “thorough” and “bookmarked” read through my journey. The Cliff Notes version, if you will!
I do hope you’ll find something here you may have missed the first time around. Or this can be a bookmark-able feast of greatest hits for you to return when you have time.

“C’mon, I thought you said something about a giveaway?” Le sigh. Girl, if you’ve fast forwarded straight to this point without a momentary and celebratory pause at my wares, maybe you shouldn’t be trying to win any of them either. Snap! However-eva, if you are a true member of the Glitterati (no matter how old, young, new or blue) leave one comment below on this blog post.* I’d love for you to tell me your favourite blog post, series, finish, or things you’d like to see more of over the next five years. Maybe I’ll listen, maybe I won’t, but maybe you’ll win all these crazy goodies that I’ve sifted out of my sewing studio.
There are so many things in this prize pack, I don’t know even know what’s in it anymore! I’ve thrown in a heap of Anna-Maria Horner Pretty Potent scraps, a MoMo Oh Deer! charm pack, clips, speciality rulers for measuring cutting and quilting, a Martelli’s ergonomic rotary cutter with spare blades, threads, zips, bags, and more fabrics oh my! Good luck to all those who enter, and thank you for being part of my journey for any part of this past five years!
*This means to be entered for the giveaway, your comment must be made on this blog post right here at MolliSparkles.com. Leaving a comment on Facebook or Instagram is so thoughtful, and I’ll read it, and I’ll most likely respond to it as well. But it doesn’t count as an entry. This giveaway is of course open internationally. I’m hoping someone from Gary, Indiana wins.
