What do you say to a …… giveaway party!

Hi Guys,

To celebrate the opening of my little shop and because I forgot my 2nd blogiversary about a month ago…and after my last post I checked my stats and some numbers matched up! I have done 143 posts and had 143 followers! How cool is that!

So that makes 3 ….. lets have a party!

Over the next 3 weeks I will have a giveaway each week! This week I have for you -


A bunting covered 2012 diary! Since my last bunting diary was quietly popular I made another one!

The diary/journal is a my.mini.organiser diary – designed to keep you organised! I found them at my local newsagent and they are fantastic, the perfect size to cart around with you – it measures 18.5cm x 12cm.

I used scraps for the bunting and some Reunion, Sorry its from Hometown, what was I thinking? by Sweetwater fabric for the background. I really loved making this and the bunting is so fun looking!

So to enter all you need to do is leave a comment telling me what you hope to get out of 2012…..what you want to achieve, your hopes and dreams for the next 12 months!

And if you are one of my valued followers you can have a second entry! Just leave a comment saying you love me…..only joking, just let me know you are a follower!

PS. If you can’t wait to win this diary I have a couple more that I just listed in my etsy shop. They are all different and unique! My creative juices have been really flowing, worth a look really!

Congratulations on the opening of you little shop.
I want the peace and joy of Christmas to continue throughout 2012 and share many more hours with family and friends, particularly creative sewing friends.

Teresa Felgueiras said...

For 2012 I only ask for good health for all my family. We're expecting rough times during this next year but I hope we'll pull through.

Teresa Felgueiras said...

Thanks for the chance.

Congratulations on your shop and your blogiversary and your followers.

What a great diary cover, so sweet!

In 2012 I've taken up the Free Motion Quilting pledge, plus I want to finish my Birdie Stitches and Civil War quilt tops. I'm thinking I'd like to run a block of the month/quilt-along project too, but we'll see.

Oh, and of course then there's get fit and lose weight ;)

Well, there's so much I'd love to do in 2012 but there is never enough time. Spend more time with my daughter sewing would be first on the list. Then hopefully finish many UFO's. And of course stay healthy. Val B (MUM)xo

For 2012 I have a couple of mini goals 1st is to unpack everything from the house move by the end of Jan - even those little boxes that hide in cupboards and you forget about - nope they won't be safe from my unpacking eye! Secondly I'm trying to get better at time management because right now I suck at it! I am the woman that leaves the house 5 mins after I'm meant to be somewhere. If ever anyone needed an organiser I do lol

Lorri said...

My plans for 2012 are to finish my BSN degree, learn to free motion quilt and take time to make at least 6 quilts this year.

2012? Well, for me it's all about a new baby and trying to survive being a mom of 2! Anything I accomplish beyond that is gravy. :)

Becky M said...

I"m a follower - love that bunting, very fun

manda said...

That cover is awesome! I don't have a diary for 2012 yet...I need it!!
I hope 2012 isn't as disastrous as 2011, what with the floods in QLD that went on and on for what felt like months, and that most communities still haven't gotten over. I'm hoping for a bumper season for the Theodore cotton growers this year! I'm personally hoping to be more crafty, and to finally get my studies completed.

Btw happy to post your book, am going to be a little busy in the next couple of weeks and I don't want you to have to wait for your gift.

Christine said...

forgot, all I want is for my Son in law to come back healthy from Afghanistan in 2012 and I will be happy

Penny from S.C. said...

For 2012 I'd love to get out of debt, learn more about how to do my new job, and be a blessing to others.

Penny from S.C. said...

I'm also a follower! Thanks

Leah said...

In 2012 I'd love to have good health for my family and friends. 2011 was a rough year....

Charlie and Wendy said...

What a gorgeous organiser! I am looking forward to 2012 - it will be the first year for a very long time that I have one job instead of juggling 3 part time jobs! I hope to have plenty of sewing time and I hope the children keep doing well at school.

Charlie and Wendy said...

I am a follower, congrats on your stats, and thank you for the opportunity to enter this lovely prize draw!

Danny said...

Danny said...

I hope to get a lot of sewing in and maybe learn to be a better photographer.

Sheila said...

What a fabulous cover for the diary...I absolutely LOVE it. The diary looks good too :)
I want to be better organised in 2012 and finish at least half my WIP´s, and spend so much time sewing that I don´t eat and therefore lose weight, whilst enjoying myself :)
And restart my blog.

Sheila said...

I´m a follower too :)

Narelle said...

Sweet bunting!
I'd love to whittle down the UFO list in 2012 ... might be wishful thinking ;)

Katy Cameron said...

In 2012 I hope to shift my business into selling at local craft fairs :o)

prsd4tim2 said...

2011 has been a difficult year, so I'm just hoping for a "better" 2012. But this morning I decided my goal is a quilt a month, plus whatever other sewing jazzes me at the time. Easy peasy - I hope.

Congrats on 2 years, 143 followers, and a new shop! What a fun way to start the new year. And such a cute diary cover too. Love those little pennants. Too fun!

prsd4tim2 said...

And of course I'm one of those 143 loyal followers! And I do love you too.

I hope that my husband gets full time work - he had an interview 2 days before Christmas and is waiting to hear. I hope to spend more time sewing by being more organised in my day to day routines.
