Birthday Blog Giveaway

Big Day today my little blog turns one year old!
I have had more fun doing this blog than I ever imagined.
In the past year over 5000 people have dropped by to have a peak at my adventures.
I want to say thank you for dropping by, for the lovely comments, feedback 
and encouragement you give me.

Yesterday Master O went back to school. 
The six weeks holidays we had just seemed to fly by and I was 
really not ready to send him back to school.
I decided to spend the day catching up on all my work piles and starting a 
new range of purses.
The little felt roses and leaves that I do on the dolls blankets are always
so popular, I thought I would do them on a range of purses.
Here is my new set of purses:

This pink one I made especially as a give away.

To enter today's giveaway please leave a comment in this post below.
Next Friday (10 Feb) I will put all the comments in a hat and Master O will draw one out 
(We will do it the old fashioned way). 
I am happy to post the prize to anywhere in the world. 
Just make sure when you post your comment that I have a way to contact you, 
should you be the winner
ie an email address if you are not set up with a blog account.
All the best and a big Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Happy Blog Birthday! You really do have the loveliest array of musings and stories, not to mention your delightful warm fuzzy treats. Definitely worthy of the Lovely Blog award xx

  2. Happy Blog Birthday!! What beautiful purses!! Thank you for the chance to win one.

  3. Your embroidery is so beautiful! I saw you at Crafternoon Tea a while ago, but thought it would be a little too weird to say "I read your blog!" lol..

    1. Hi Nova
      Its always wonderful to meet someone who reads my blog. Please do say Hi next time.
      All the best

  4. Alex, just saw you on the NZHandmade facebook page. I love new blogs to follow, so here I am. Your purses are beautiful.

  5. Hey Alex

    Happy 1st Birthday!!!! I love your felt products (as you well know!). You are an inspiring Blogger and if I turn my blog into anything like yours I will be truly satisfied. Here's to a fantastic 2012.......Year number 2!


    P.S Thank you for the award - I'm still trying to figure out passing it on but it's on my list of things to do!

  6. Hi, I just love your purses and things, they are so lovely. Congratulations on your blogging birthday! My blog is just over a month old!

  7. Happy Birthday! I Stumbled Upon your blog about 2 months ago during a day of mindless sample analysis in the lab. I'm 12,000 miles away from home, missing my family and my big stash of craft supplies in Ireland and getting to read back over all your blog brings a little touch of warm fuzziness thinking about the crafting I used do with my mum and the patience she had!! I will hopefully get to see your products soon at a craft fair - it's all beautiful and I want!!
    Congrats again and I look forward to the next year!
