Happy Giveaway

September 17, 2009 | Comment66 comments - join the party! |

It’s my blogs first birthday today, so as mentioned before, I am having a giveaway.

There are 3 prizes, so three chances to win. I will be sending a lovely package to three lucky winners.

The first package will include: Fabric from my very favorite stash, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. So vibrant, so beautiful, so nostalgic. This set also includes The Creative family by Amanda Blake Soule, vintage buttons, and bias tape. (I love bias tape) (and I think the fabric would make a great half apron)

Second package: a sew your own doll kit from the dolls in my shop.

The third package: Just in time for Christmas. This package will include a pattern for the Gingerbread House by Cassi Griffin plus all the felty goodness you need to make it. Make a whole bunch up in time to giveaway for Christmas. (take pictures so I can see)

Enter to win by:

1.A must, follow this blog (click the follow button on the right sidebar). Leave a comment below stating your favorite blog and why.

2. Tweet this giveaway.

Thanks and I do keep stopping by….as I already feel a Christmas theme giveaway coming soon.

Winners will be chosen randomly and announced on Oct 2.

Happy 1st birthday! How exciting!

And a giveaway to boot, that's so sweet of you! I'd love to win any of these prizes. I'd tweet about it if I were a twitter member, but I'm not.

Thank you for the blog love. I do hope to snatch up that Wild Things crown if I can fit it into our budget and I adore your son's new cape! I made one once in about five minutes out of gray flannel so that we could take my son to a Lord of the Rings midnight showing – he wanted to be dressed as a hobbit, of course! He slept warmly in his cape through the whole thing, but he still uses it and loves it.

Maybe you could figure out your own pattern and sell them in your themed versions. I love that you do literary themed items. I am an Alice fan, to be sure. My daughter's first birthday party was dubbed Eleanor in ONEderland. Anyway, I was pleased :O) ha ha.

Sorry to go on and on…

Blessings for the year ahead,

ummm… duh. I just realized that I didn't disclose the name of my favorite blog… I have so many favorites that it is hard to choose…

For now I am going to say Ree Drummond's blog http://thepioneerwoman.com/

Honesty, laughs, great pictures, amazing food (with recipes!), giveaways… Yeah. It's a good choice for a favorite to be sure :O)

Firstly, happy birthday! Free stuff! And creative stuff. Pick me, pick me! Seriously inspired…and to think that Craigslist got me here. I think I have read 2 blogs in my entire life and I just spent the past few hours, minus a feed, some play time and a few diaper changes to check out your list of blogs. I was a bit stumped by my "favorite". So, my favorite on your list is "Angry Chicken" It is hilarious, inspires me to create with, paper, fabric, and many other ways, but also in the kitchen. Honestly, seeing her daughter in a climbing harness was pretty cool too. Hope my little sweetheart embraces her creativity!

Happy Bloggerversary! Oh what wonderful giveaways. My kids just love the hungry caterpillar.

Does it count that my favourite blog is Amanda Soule of Soulemama. She is so inspiring and makes the best stuff. I also love Kathleen of Grosgrain because the clothes featured there are fabulous and stylish.
Sorry, I don't tweet either.

My favourite blog? That's a tough one.

The Sartorialist for it's universal appeal and great photos.

Happy blog birthday! What great prizes! My favorite site is hard to pick, I follow so many. Sewmamasew is one, whipup is another great one. I follow your blog now, and subscribed also!

by tammiemarie on September 18, 2009 at 1:02 pm. Reply #

Hmm… who I like best… there's so many! Probably My Cosy Little Whimsy Nook, as she writes delightfully, has excellent photographs, and makes nifty stuff — it's not generally my type of stuff, but the way she writes about it makes me love it all. I can't write that way.

And, I'm a follower ๐Ÿ™‚ Can't tweet, but there you go. All three are fun prizes! I had a doll made from pre-printed fabric once (the one from "there was a little girl, who had a little curl…"), loved it.

Happy Blog Birthday! I love your giveaway and your blog! My favorite blog is one of yours too: nieniedialogues.com. She is such an inspiration, not only how she overcame tragedy but how she loves her family wholeheartedly.

by Maggie on September 18, 2009 at 3:05 pm. Reply #

Reaching such a milestone, how lovely.

My favorite blog is Plesant Home (http://www.pleasant-home.com/).
It is a fantastic site to visit with other blogs attached for sewing and cooking.

I have happily joined as a follower.

Hi it was difficult to think of my favorite blog as I have so many new choices I like this week alone…I think the one I seek out most as far as a blog has to be The Art Of Crochet by Teresa whose blog is at: http://crochet-mania.blogspot.com/ I learn new stitches to try out and I first saw her on You Tube.

and I just tweeted you too 8)

I love your cut out critters, thank you for sharing your tutorial for that.

Happy 1st and many more to follow have a blessed week!

My favourite blog… Hmm… I have so many that I love, each for different reasons… I think I'll say Julias blog at Stamping Ground. Not only is it a brilliant craft blog but her posts spark fantastic conversations and debates ๐Ÿ™‚ http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
