A late Monday Makers! #13 and a Blog anniversary give away

(Please read the update added on Saturday, 22 November at the end of the post. Thank you!)
I am so happy to say that my busy days at work have almost finished. I was in Adelaide yesterday for a meeting. It was only a day trip so it was a little rushed and compressed. By the time I got home, it was almost ten o'clock at night. After a quick change into pyjamas and a cuddle with my boy, I left myself into the soft arms of my bed. I am back at work tomorrow and all I need to do is do some follow up work to finish for the year.
I opened my eyes this morning with a little panic because I realised that I forgot to post Monday Makers! yesterday. So here is Monday Makers! #13 with a small addition:
Friday 21 is my first blog anniversary; so, I have a little give away to celebrate it. I want to thank my followers for their continuous support with this give away and also welcome the new ones if they wish to become a follower.
Different than a usual fabric or book give away, today I am giving away a pair of earrings from my small jewellery business.
This beautiful piece of jewellery is fully handmade in Turkey with a traditional Turkish technique called "igne oyasi/oya lace". You can see several other examples of jewellery made with this technique here and here. These earrings measure 2.5 inches between the widest points.
You can enter to win twice by 1) commenting on this post and letting me know that you are following my blog on Bloglovin; 2) by commenting on this post on my Facebook page and letting me  know that you "like" my page. 
I will keep the give away open until Saturday midnight AEDT/08:00 EST
Update: I decided to reschedule this giveaway for Monday, 8 December for Sew Mama Sew's biannual give away linky party day. Thank you for your understanding. 
I will create a list of names by combining your names here and on my Facebook page and let the random number generator pick a winner. I will announce the winner on Sunday. Good luck!

Now to Monday Makers!
Please link up your beautiful finishes from last week and your new projects you have started for this week. I am looking forward to visiting your pages!
