Giveaway time!!!

~~~ This giveaway is now closed 😦 ~~~

A while ago I noticed I was on 95 wordpress followers, and promised a celebratory giveaway when I reached 100. Well that was last week and I honestly didn’t think I would get so many new readers in such a short space of time, so I wasn’t prepared with a prize.

Well, to say a big “Thank You!!” for all your support and lovely comments, I now have collated a bundle of goodies to share with one of my lucky followers!

IMG_20130827_195935[1]One winner will get a parcel containing:

  • 1m of Liberty lawn. It is cream with colourful hand-drawn flowers and fun doodles. It is gorgeous but I don’t think I will be able to wear it to do it justice (see my last post about me not loving cream clothing) so would love it to be put to proper use (not hidden in my pockets)
  • A book of sticky notes decorated with doodles of vintage sewing machines (7 designs in 3 sizes)
  • A Dressmaking Notes sketchbook (because September = back-to-school new stationery)
  • Two lengths of ribbon (each approx 1.5 to 2m long) decorated with buttons and bunting
  • Dressmaker’s wax for smoother hand-sewing (as discussed by #sewcialists on twitter recently)
  • A bar of yummy chocolate

Wow! That sounds like a lot when typed up. And I will send this to anyone in the world (chosen at random) in exchange for giving me some feedback on my blog.

I am almost approaching 200 blog posts and have over 150 followers (on WordPress and Bloglovin’ combined) which is rather overwhelming. I started this blog to document my creations and as a way to get discuss crafting without boring my real-life non-crafty friends. I never imagined so many people would read my random thoughts, so I just blogged about whatever popped into my head, with no idea whether people would enjoy reading it.

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave a comment telling me what you like or love about my blog and what I can do to improve my little crafty blog. Is there anything you want me to try and blog more about? In the spirit of going back to school, you can give your feedback in the form of “2 Stars and A Wish” – tell me 2 things you like (specific makes/posts or general things) and one wish for something you’d like to see in future.

The giveaway will close on Tuesday 3rd September at 21:00 GMT when I will select a winner at random. Please make sure I can contact you easily if you win; If I can’t get in touch with the winner within a week, I will pick another winner. Good luck!
