Inferior Design's 1st birthday and a giveaway:

Happy birthday, Inferior Design!

As strange as it feels to say it, a year ago today I published my very first blog post here on Inferior Design!  This is also my 90th post!  It would've been better if it was my 100th, though, wouldn't it?  Never mind!  I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to blogging, but I've learned a lot over the last year and like to think I've made some improvements along the way.  Even just sticking with something for this long feels like an achievement worth celebrating, and I couldn't have done it without all of you.

Although my motivation for blogging will always be to entertain myself, it's comforting to know that there are people out there reading my posts and enjoying them.  The number of unexpected compliments I've had recently from friends, colleagues and even people I've never met about my blog has left me both surprised and touched.

To say thank you to all of you, I have decided to host a giveaway here on my blog for one week, starting today!  Everything in the photo above is up for grabs, even the cool birthday confetti, if you want it!  There will be three prizes (all of which have been featured in previous Inferior Inspiration posts) and a little something for three runners up, too.  I have chosen to host the giveaway through Rafflecopter, so that everyone can enter easily with just one or two clicks of the widget below.

The rules:

1. You must be 18 years or over to take part in this giveaway, or have parental permission to give me your address should you win (obviously I won't use your address for anything other than sending out your prize!).

2. You must follow me or Inferior Design on one or more of the following social media sites to enter (this can be done through the Rafflecopter widget):

3. The giveaway is open internationally, and will end on Sunday 21st July at 12am (GMT).

4. The winners and runners up will be contacted directly within 48 hours of the giveaway ending, as well as being announced on this blog post (and probably Facebook and Twitter!).  The prizes will then be posted to the address that you provide me with.

5. Please specify which prize you would prefer to receive under the heading 'Please send me...' on the Rafflecopter Widget.  (This is a compulsory part of entering.)

The prizes:

You can choose between a two-tone green Le Creuset mug, a lilac scalloped tea cup and saucer from Oliver Bonas (both featured in Inferior Inspiration #5) and a set of 'so ugly they're cute' French bulldog salt and pepper shakers from Debenhams (from Inferior Inspiration #2).  Which do you like best?

I suppose all there is left to say is please feel free to enter above, good luck, and thank you so much again for supporting me and Inferior Design over the last year!  I'm looking forward to sending out some Inferior birthday presents to some of you next week, but all of you are winners in my eyes.  Cheeeeeeesy.

Disclaimer: This giveaway is not sponsored, all prizes were purchased with my own money.
