200th post GIVEAWAY!!!

Well, here we are - 200 posts since I began this blog. I have loved having a place to show off and its been super fun meeting other creative people who love crafting. Now, I want to give back. I just hope that I get more people entering this giveaway than I had on the pay it forward challenge! I have been planning this ever since I missed the typical 100th post giveaway and after some help from my wonderful 11 year old daughter I feel like I have some great stuff to give to someone like you!

I have included some vintage and some new items which I hope someone out there will enjoy!

What I've included in the giveaway;
* 3 "sweetie-pie" dick and jane cards
* birch circular needles 2.75mm 60cm
* 3 balls sullivans crochet and knitting cotton 4ply
* Snap Out Of It Ginseng Tea
* 4 Fabric remnants (including one vintage)
* vintage flexi-lace hem facing
* baggie one; cotton tape, gold elastic
* baggie two; seven iron-on and sew-on embroidery embellishments
* baggie three; ten wooden teddy bear embellishments
* baggie four; a small pile of buttons (some vintage)
* baggie five; some vintage lacy ribbon
* baggie six; unused vintage snap fasteners - size 1

It's simple to enter, just leave a comment below as many times as you'd like! Someone will win on the 28th May (NZ time - so 27th for anyone in the states!), giving you one week to enter! Don't forget to tell all your friends...

Oooh my - giveaways? The lovely Curlypops sent me here (along with a few others, I see). Congratulations on 200 posts. My 200th passed me by without even realising it. So did my 100th. Your giveaway looks fabulous - especially so as I've just taught myself how to knit and that knitting cotton looks delicious!

Hi, I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at your things. I am going to have a new Grand baby soon and will certainly make some of those bibs! The fabrics you used were very cute and using sheets for lounge pants-how creative! Enjoy your little bundle and thanks so much for sharing. Congratulations on your 200 posts; I know you are going to have many more.

Melania Kidwell said...

Love your site!! SO many pretty designs!

pamel said...

I just found your blog today and must say it is a very engaging and informative one. I love your pretty patterns. Also, your tutorial on knitting socks is very instrutctional. I have been knitting for many years myself, however have never mastered the kitchener stitch therefore I tend to only knit heeless socks for that reason. I bookmarked your site so I may return to it quite frequently and will also be subscribing to it. I feel it is one of the best blogs with a great deal of content I have come across. I have a knitting blog myself but only just begun it a few months back. Keep up the great work. I am also glad for the entry into your giveaway. Whoever wins will be extremely fortunate to get all those goodies. Good luck to everyone.
