GIVEAWAY !!!!

To celebrate my 100th post I am having a giveaway- it will be on sometime during Blogtoberfest when I make my 100th post. I am giving away some lovely vintage buttons and a little shopping bag so you don't have to use those practical -yet unattractive- green bags. This one pops easily into your handbag.

To enter just leave a comment on this post and on some other posts too - if you like- I will announce the winner on my 100th post- so keep coming back to have a look! I will send this anywhere in the world. So enter away.

  4. Those look like some awesome fuzzy buttons! (I waaaaaant...) And I must agree with you on that bag being much more attractive than the practical green ones. I am just not motivated to use them! I need cute!

    I hope you have a great day!

  19. Hi, I am a fellow blogtoberfest-ER! OMG its such a great platform to meet people all over! My blog is mostly about my little baby though... He's all brand new and i am really excited about the little steps he is taking! Anyway here's a little note: Great blog, keep blogging will be coming back for more!
    My quest is to check out every single blogger on tinniegal's blogtoberfest and leave a comment at each...
    Psst: the only craft I can come up with are just scrapbooks and cross stitches! Your bag is gorgeous! Do pick me!!!

  20. I would love to win!! I live in Holland, MI USA. Thanks for the giveaway!! Love seeing what everyone else is making. I had the same thing about sewing from my 4-H leader. Too many seams not correct and had to be removed and start again. Oh My!!!

  21. hello!
    i'm a first time visitor to your blog and i'm particpating in the Blogtoberfest AND i just wanted to say how happy i am that you have chosen to work through the 'scars' from that horrible Mrs. Nash...it does upset me when i hear such stories of creativity being squashed in the interest of "teaching" and i've seen it happen more than once =-(

    i can tell you from personal experience that learning ANY skill takes time and practice so i'm glad you chose creativity! your giveaway bag is really AWESOME!

    and congratulations on your 100th entry taking place this month!! i think your story might inspire a blog post for me... =-)

  37. Hi fellow Blogtoberfester isn’t it all so exciting and overwhelming!! I have only recently started blogging and stumbling across Blogtoberfest at Cathie from m.e.’s blog is such good luck and good timing. It is helping me meet lots of like minded souls and learn so much about blogging. That little bag you have made is so cute, I am just starting to get into yellow and the vintage buttons I found recently (and just had to blog about) have helped me fall even more in love with the colour. Buttons, buttons, buttons; I just can’t believe how many people love them as much as I do! Congratulations on almost 100 posts, I wonder what I will be posting about when I get there?

  40. How can I resist a crack at this one? Am up to my eyeballs in green bags and would be rather chuffed to pull out a florally funky version. And you know how you get the checkout chick raised eyebrow when any not green bags you might happen to bring don't have those little supermarket bag holder loops? I love a spot of trouble to brighten my day...
