Celebrating One Year + Giveaway

Teacher by trade - Mother by nature is officially ONE year old! Woohoo! *high five* For more details of how it all began, see my previous post: Milestone Moment: Turning One.

Turns out blogging was just the hobby I needed. It was a place for me to share tidbits of my life, home and family, and also sharing creative ideas, inspiring a few people along the way. I have put a lot of hard work, blood, sweat and tears into Teacher by trade Mother by nature, and I am really proud of myself for reaching this one year milestone.  There are so many things I have learned in my first year of blogging and I plan to share them on my blog soon. In the meantime, there a some pretty amazing posts (if I don't say so myself), so grab a cuppa and stay a while. My Top 10 Blog Posts is a great place to start or in the left sidebar - Popular Posts. Enjoy!

I'm so grateful for every reader, every comment (I read them all), every follower on every social media outlet I have. Really, I couldn't do this without all of you, and I am thankful that you are here now and keep coming back for more. 

And to say thanks, I have decided to do a little #giveaway on my Facebook page. It includes some favourite items I have in my own home (Sorry - New Zealand & Australia residents only) 

1. Snood (wrap around scarf)
2. Home Block Calendar
3. To-Do List. 
4. Customised Birth Keepsake or Favourite Quote - MADE BY TTMN {Digital File} (not pictured)

  1. How awesome!! Happy anniversary!

  2. Dang....I live in the USA!. Is it really expensive for shipping??

    1. Sorry Paula! This is my first giveaway so I wanted to keep it close to home. I live in New Zealand and it can get quite expensive to send overseas, especially to the USA.

  3. Happy Blogiversary!! And congratulations on doing so well in your first year!

  4. Congratulations!!! Well done on reaching 1 year. I've loved following along and I enjoy reading your posts. Keep up the good work.

  5. Happy Blogiversary Charlene! I really like your blog :)
    I'm also a primary school teacher and I find so many ideas here, especially DIY!

    I'm just starting out a new project and am offering a free pack of activities (TPT bestseller) to other education enthusiasts. (I used this pack heaps with my new entrant students and preschoolers as well). This project is especially about helping children play cooperatively instead of competitively. If you're interested, check out the page and this freebie! xx :) Jordana
