Wow … so it’s been a year since I finally got my act together, stopped procrastinating and started a little blog called MumptyStyle.com.
Having MumptyStyle has bought some fabulous people and lots of new knowledge and experiences into my life and I’m very grateful for that. Having a blog is a lot more work than I expected, but also a lot more fun!
So for this little Happy Birthday post I’ve decided to do a quick prize-giving. A prize-giving you ask? Yes – a prize-giving. So, without further ado, here goes:

I hope you enjoy it even half as much as I do!
Love and birthday candles …
