100th Post Giveaway and a beautiful song

After lurking in the shadows of the Blogland for about 8 months, I finally started this little crafty blog on January 15th 2008, and I've somehow managed to click over 100 posts in 88 days. I certainly didn't expect that! I thought I'd have nothing to write about, nothing pretty to show, and nobody would bother reading about it anyway, (apart from some friends and family who are obligated to read my ramblings, he he he).

I'm having so much fun as a blogger, I may just keep going at this pace and never give up! I love checking for new comments each day, and reading everyone elses blogs too, and leaving lots of comments (I comment a lot, I can't help myself)!

Anyhooo, to get on with the important business of this's time for a giveaway! The prize will be:

1. An item handmade by me (an apron or a handbag)
2. Some fabric
3. Some other crafty bit and pieces
4. Some chocolate

To enter, leave a comment on this post and answer the following questions:

1. I would like to win a .........(handbag or apron)
2. My favourite colour is.......
3. My favourite chocolate is...........

I will draw a winner next Friday......Have a lovely weekend!

Gosh you have been busy!!! I think it will take us more than a year to reach 100 posts:) Congratulations on reaching 100. Sarah is at school at present but I will answer the questions on her behalf - love aprons; favourite colours are blue and purple; loves all chocolate as long as it doesn't have fruit fillings or nuts. Best wishes, Lisa and Sarah

Belinda said...

Congratulations on making it to 100 and inspiring others of us out there to start moving toward that milestone. May you share many more one hundreds of posts and comments with your readership. Great coupling of clip and music isn't it?
Your questions, love an apron, favorite colour is dark red, favourite chocolate is a tie between haighs or lindt strangely prefer dark over most else!

Cass said...

I love you blog and am so glad I have found it. I wouldn't mind an apron or a bag, my favourite colour at the moment is green or purple and there is no contest with the chocolate definitely Haighs (thanks goodness we have them in Sydney now)

I had no idea that your blog is only a few months old! I started in February and yours was one of the first I came across and I've been reading eversince (I'm a CrulyPops groupie :)) If I win, I would love a handbag, my favorite color is purple and I LOVE white chocolate but never reject any of the others (that wouldn't be very nice, now would it?).

Congrats on the big 100!

Sasparilla Sue said...

I didn't hit play on the song until after I left my comment and I just wanted to tell you that that version of Over The Rainbow has a special place in my heart. It's a particular favorite of my family (on my mom's side) and has been played at more than one funeral, so the memory is bittersweet but I still love to hear it. Thank you so much for having it in your post.

JustJess said...

Congratulations! I am about to get to my 100th too - thank you for commenting so regularly - it means so much! I love reading your blog and seeing what you have been doing! From a giveaway perspective, it all sounds so delicious, but I am an apron-kind-of-girl, I love colour, and I love dark choc (pref fair trade!)
