Homemade by Fleur – The Next Chapter and Giveaway #2

Well Hello!! My new blog was ready a little bit early, and I was too excited to wait until tomorrow morning so here it is in all it’s glory for your to take a look around.   I really hope you like it.

I immediately need to say a big thank you to my brother Liam for working so hard on my new blog and to my sister-in-law Nic who created my logo.  They are both absolute stars and its safe to say I could not have done this without them.  Big hugs to both of them.  By the way my brother is available to create more blogs if anyone is interested.  Just drop me a line via email and I’ll put you in touch.

I had not been blogging for very long when I started to read about all the benefits of getting a self hosted blog, and I soon knew that this was something I really needed to do.  Taking the plunge to swap over has been a bit scary but I’m over the moon with my new blog.  There is so much more I can do with it now.  I really feel like I’ve started the next chapter of my blogging adventure.

I have lots of fun blog posts planned for you in the near future so do watch this space.  Remember if you subscribe to my blog you won’t miss anything!

To help me celebrate the launch of my new blog with my readers Renshaw have given me 3 of their great British icing packs which contain four ready-to-roll icing blocks in Union Jack colours to giveaway.   This is fantastic timing with the Jubilee next weekend but you will have to be very quick.  This giveaway is only open over this weekend and closes at the end of Sunday 29th May 2012 so the 3 lucky winners can get a pack sent out to them in time for the bank holiday.

    I haven’t seen my best mate since last August so she’s coming to stay for the bank holiday :D We’re having a Jubilee garden party so there’ll be lots of booze, bunting and baking going on. I’ve just stocked up on red and black icing and going to practice making some Royal Guards this afternoon :D Lovely Jubilee xx

    Love the new blog look – I’ve been trying to convince my brother to help me redesign my blog for ages – I’ll have to show him this post to guilt tip him! lol. I’m going to different street parties this year – mine and others which will be fun.

    Fleur, i think the new page is fab! Can’t believe your baking has taken off so much and you are obviously so talented. I am organizing a street party for the jubilee and currently drowning with only 6 days to go! The icing looks great!

  18. SadiaMay 27, 2012 at 8:21 pmReply

    I can’t find royal blue icing colour anywhere. So I will have to put my thinking cap on and do something with this, should I win. I will be celebrating with my son, baking and watching TV

  19. Karen Burns BoothMay 28, 2012 at 9:28 pmReply

    LOOKING good Fleur and you will LOVE self hosting too……FABULOUS! Karen
