Giveaway!

1/11/2008
So recently I hit my 200th post and with the holidays in the mix it basically went by unnoticed. Time to celebrate!!! To think I have had well over 200 different things I wanted to talk about and that you read them! So as a way to say thanks and keep the creative juices flowing around the world I am offering up a box to one lucky reader filled to the max with all kinds of crafty goodness but mostly fabric. We are talking new, old, and very vintage fabric. Buttons, ribbon, and various trims. I may even throw in a book or magazine.

You have until Thursday January 17th to sign up. Leave me a comment and let me know what you would like to see or not see on my blog this year.

Anyone and everyone can sign up, note though if you are outside of the US your box of goodies may be a little smaller due to the cost of shipping.

I'd love to see anything you have done with vintage fabrics. They have so much history and a life of their own. I'd love to win your surprise box...what fun.

HobbyMommy said...

I agree with sbonetsue on seeing things you're doing with vintage fabrics! I don't know of a decent place to get vintage fabs around here! Throw me into the box chances please!

Thanks! I look forward to reading the next 200!!

Congratulations on 200 posts!

I love posts about your projects and amusing photos. I could do without the big long list memes, but I really don't mind them - I just have a tendency to scroll past them, for the most part.

Angela James said...

I love to see the finished products as well as the process of making! Mostly because I the inspiration is good for me, because I'm not the type of person who can create ideas on my own.

More pictures of the cute kid and the dog are good too ;)

The one thing I always like is lables for posts. It is so much easier to find things. Great giveaway!

Alisha said...

I just found your site (also via Sew, Mama, Sew) and have enjoyed looking through some old posts. I don't know if I should say what I would or would not like to see since I'm a new reader, but I'll throw in my two cents anyway. :)

I love to see what you're making and love those photos of your daughter and your dog. (I also have a beagle -- with plenty of photos on my blog.) Like ikkinlala, I don't usually read the memes.

Congrats on the 200th post!

Sarah said...

I came via Sew Mama Sew, so I don't yet know what your blog's about, but on with the craftiness, I say! :)

Stephenson Family said...

I love tutorials and just any fun, easy ideas of things to make. One thing that I am always at a loss for is what to make for kids between the ages of 6-12. I have cute baby, little kid projects that I like to make for gifts, but that 6-12 age group is a hard one for me. So, if you have any ideas for them, I'd love to see them!

Deb said...

Congrats on your 200th post! I came over via Sew Mama Sew. I'd love to see any posts relating to quilting. And I'd love to win some of your fabric stash. I'm collecting purple fabrics for a scrappy quilt.

jill said...

I love reading about projects. I'm always inspired by the way others see beauty.

Beth said...

I also love that a few weeks ago you said that you have only been sewing for a little bit, and it encouraged me so much! You have made so many beautiful things! So thanks for the encouragement and inspiration!

cocobelle said...

Hi,

I'd love to see your vintage finds and what you do with them, particularly using vintage fabrics. Also, as I'm from Northern Ireland, how about the odd photo of Wiscosin as it makes me think of the 'Little House on the Prairie' series which I read as a girl, and loved.Thanks.

Niesz Vintage Home said...

Hi, I'm a regular lurker to your blog. :)

Anything having to do with vintage fabrics ranks high on my list. Also, I seem to be in a tote bag rut, and would like to see some different types of (simple) sewing projects.

Teresa said...

Hi. I just found your blog and enjoyed looking around. I enjoy your photography and you have a beautiful child. I love color, texture, fiber, beads, etc. I am in particular looking for more uses of vintage textiles that get them out of the closet but not use them up.

Karen S. said...

Another Sew Mama Sew transfer... I've been poking around a bit and want to thank SMS for constantly referring me to such fabulous crafty sites! I love tutorials and have to agree with others, I'm just getting into quilting so more tutorials and quilting (or a combo!) Thanks!

Sara

Sara said...

Congratulations! I'm a lurker, but have never left a comment - get tongue-tied a guess, but when there's a giveaway at stake, guess I'll put in my 2 cents.

panamomma said...

Congratulations on your 200th post. I have a daughter about your daughter's age and it has caused me to broaden my sewing horizons as well. The fact that I live on an island in Panama makes it a bit of a necessity as well.
