Happy Blogiversary to my blog JustTheBeginning-x.com!
In June 2017, I was sat on the bus daydreaming when the name JustTheBeginning-x popped into my head. I’d been interested in starting a blog for a little but without a name it never actually happened.
That night after work I came home and clicked the ‘sign up’ button on WordPress. I began blogging about our fertility struggles, but it soon became so much more than that. I met friends and felt part of a community.
I continued posting the odd blog here and there, and soon Christmas came around and I was gifted a graphics tablet by my husband. I studied Digital Design throughout A Level and University but really lost the love for it by the time I finished my degree.
I spent the next few days glued to my computer drawing silly little cartoons. Cartoons that soon became card designs that I uploaded to other websites with my fingers crossed someone would like them enough to buy them. Over the next few months, every time I received a little email to tell me someone had purchased one I would have the biggest smile on my face. For the first time in a long, long time I had found something that I enjoyed.
Well guess what?! As a birthday treat to my own blog I’m moving my shop over here! The last month has been so busy and so stressful. I’ve spent every spare minute collecting ideas, ordering stock and making my website look just right.
I’d really love for you to have a look around and share the link with your friends.
In celebration I’m also hosting a giveaway!
The goodies above are up for grabs!
The prize is: 1 ‘Have a Flamingood Birthday” Greeting Card, 1 “Sleepy Fox” Greeting Card, 1 Flower Pocket mirror and 1 Cute Zebra Badge.
All you have to do is post below who you would give the cards to!
(Or if you’d rather just keep them for yourself, I won’t judge!)
The winner will be picked at random and all entries have to be received by 25th July 2018 11:59pm.
You do have to be in the UK to win the giveaway, but if this goes well I’ll definitely do some more and look into including other countries!
I really hope you enjoy my little shop, It’s definitely had a lot of love poured into it.
